Having sex with nearly every everyone you work with, as your co-workers do the same? Well then maybe you work at Seattle Grace hospital! It might be that most people's lives are a lot more boring than those of the employees we've come to know over the last 6 years at the medical facility on Grey's Anatomy.

In February 12th 2006's episode "As We Know It" (#2.17), Meridith Grey had to take a bomb out of a patients's chest, while another doctor (Bailey) was giving birth and a third (Derek) is doing brain surgery on Bailey's husband! Watch this clip from that episode of Grey's Anatomy on YouTube. Also, the interns and residents struggle with personal problems and relationships.
