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

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)

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.
