Grey's Anatomy Planning Special Meredith-Cristina Episode

at . Comments

Meredith and Cristina have formed one of Grey's Anatomy's core relationships for years.

Now they're getting an episode unlike any other, according to creator Shonda Rhimes.

The standalone Grey's Anatomy Season 9 episode is just the story of Meredith and Cristina," Rhimes says. "It’s really going to be original. I don’t think we’ve ever told a story the way we’re telling a story in this episode.”

In typical Shonda fashion, she won't reveal specifics, saying only, “It’s not a regular episode. I won’t be able to explain what the gimmick is until I’ve seen it shot and we’ve decided on the visual style of it"

"But it is going to be fairly different.”

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.
