OC Character Will Join Seattle Grace

at . Comments

Thursday nights are about to get a bit more competitive for Grey's Anatomy -- and the producers of the series that will oppose it are well aware of what they're up against.

OC Character Will Join Seattle Grace
Last week, Bill Lawrence, creator of Scrubs, poked fun at the quirky comedy entering the same Thursday time slot as Grey's, saying how he wants to re-name star Zach Braff "McWeenie," or "McCheesy."

Now Josh Schwartz (right), creator of The OC, has done him one better.

According to an interview Schwartz did with the Boston Globe, one of the male characters will leave Orange County -- for a job at Seattle Grace Hospital -- the fictional medical center where Grey's Anatomy is set.

Now that would be fun to watch -- if it weren't on at the same time as Grey's. You know you've become a staple of popular culture when both series going up against you simultaneously poke fun and pay tribute to you.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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.
