Grey's Anatomy Discussed at The Office
Grey's Anatomy continues to earn its place in the popular culture lexicon. The show was referenced on last night's episode of The Office, NBC's hilarious mockumentary centered around the mundane lives of oddball employees at a Scranton, Pa., company.
Having undergone a test for skin cancer, emotionless accountant Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner, pictured) is awaiting the results when asked about his hangdog expression by co-worker Kelly (Mindy Kaling, also one of the show's writers).
When he tells her he might have skin cancer, the slightly-airheaded Kelly replies, "Really? I was watching Grey's Anatomy and one of the patients was a lifeguard who had skin cancer. That's so weird!"
This is the second NBC show to mention Grey's Anatomy in recent weeks, following the lead of offbeat medical sitcom Scrubs. Both shows are highly recommended by the Insider, and not just because they give props to Meredith & Co... although it doesn't hurt.
