at . Comments

Frances Conroy, of Six Feet Under fame has been cast on Grey's Anatomy in a guest role that sounds perfectly suited for the Golden Globe winner's talents, according to TV Guide.

She will portray a patient named Eleanor who blacks out. Why?

Because, as Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes explains, Eleanor claims she blacked out right around the time she raced into a Laundromat and caught her naughty husband folding another woman's panties. Yeah, that will do it to you every time.

"Whether or not she really blacked out is an issue," says Rhimes.

Interesting. Detectives Grey and Yang will have to investigate.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

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."
