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

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.
