Talk About a Love / Hate Relationship

Below is the perspective of Meredith... Goldstein, that is. She's a Boston Globe columnist, and we thought you'd like to see what she has to say about her namesake and the Grey's Anatomy protagonist:


Talk About a Love / Hate Relationship
I hate Meredith.

I have my reasons.

She whines incessantly and puts y's on the end of words that don't need them (after all, she's "dark and twisty").

She can't be alone, she only talks about her love life, and an entire hospital staff orbits around her.

She got her job because of her mom.

During the 15 seconds she was single, she met a perfect veterinarian who cooks.

She used a sick dog to perpetuate adultery.

She slept with a million guys and never freaked out to her roommates about whether she got an STD.

I hate her because McDreamy is a stupid nickname.

I hate Meredith for the same reason someone posted this note on a blog last winter at 2:20 a.m.: "I think Meredith's character needs to gain about 20 pounds and stop crying." And for the reason someone posted this one on a blog just a few months ago after last season's finale: "Meredith looks like some skeleton someone found on an archeological dig and did a voodoo spell on to bring her back to life. Someone get her a Twinkie, a pizza and a Luna Bar and fast."

At least Ally McBeal sang sometimes.

I hate Meredith because sometimes she has a lisp and sometimes she doesn't.

I hate her even more because the lisp is cute.

When Meredith is doing her job, which involves cutting people open and exposing their organs, I'm pretty sure she's thinking about boys. She breathes loud to be dramatic. She probably doesn't even have asthma!

She thinks she's unique -- everybody's parents get sick and divorced.

I hate Meredith because she wants what she can't have.

Because she's probably going to get her way.

Because if she doesn't get her way, I will feel incomplete.

And because tonight, against my better judgment, I will tune in and root for her just like everybody else.

Scary ah? I am sorry for the fans of Meredith that can't stand the fact that other's might have another opinion. By the way I will tell you something: IT is just (JUST) a TV show...Voila, BTW: Yeah sure we are all super jealous of a TV show characther!


Meredith is the best charecte on the show and umm iis called Grey's Anatomy 4 a reason!!!!!!! so SHUT UP!!!!!! MEREDITH GREY/ ELLEN POMPEO ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I came accross this website today searching for any informations. I did not find them, but your site was very interesting.


I have a friend call Nita .She Have a bad habits.She always tells lie.But se is very trustful,that why i am her friend.I would like everybody to give me some comment.
Sometimes I get very well with her like sister,but sometimes we hate each other.I hate her but yet she is kind to me.


Omg, I love Meredith!!!
Why are you so negative about her?
She's the main character of this serie??
And there is nothing wrong with her?
She loves Derek? Isn't that obvious?
She will always return to him!
True love


merder don't be so stupid. after watching code black for the first time i have a newfound respect for Meredith. She is so brave and that anastesia doctor is a lowly coward who should be fired! i do however still love Izzy and George!


lucky, do not expect 4 me 2 talk2 u again
did u not read wat i rote?
goodness me x x x merder x x x


i think that this person is kind of right. I mean she's obviously jealous of meredith, i mean who isn't? shes good looking,has a cool job,has great friends and a gorgeous doctor is in love with her. But Meredith is quite whiny, and slightly self-centred - this doesn't mean that i hate her myself, just that i can see where the author is coming from. i have to say that i prefer izzy personally. and i love George!


ALSO meredith cares about others, especially her patients, even when she's having a rough time
AND she didn't get the job because of her mother
she is good at what she does
for crying out loud
the show is a phenomenon and shes the title character-i think that says it all


i think you'd be whiny too if you were in meredith's shoes
and i don't have a love/hate relationship at all with her
i just LOVE her
her and derek are meant to be together
if the fella u loved turned out 2 have a wife and ur mother had alzheimers and so on i would whine AND cry too
there is nothing wrong with crying
it's not as if shes a size zero either and mcdreamy is the best nickname ever
we don't wanna hear if you don't like meredith, so keep your REASONS to urself
we love her x x x mer/der x x x ps. well i do :)


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
