S3 E9: Robbing Banks and Lying about Tremors: A Burke and Cristina Story

TRIGGER WARNING: Abbey and Bri talk about the catching of the Golden State Killer. If you are sensitive to such topics, please skip ahead to just past 11 minutes. Welcome to another episode of the On Call Room, where the weather is warm, the bugs are flying, and Spring storms are plentiful. Do not fret listeners you will have many weeks where your hosts Abbey and Bri complain about all the terrible things warm weather brings. Stay tuned!This episode is supposed to be dramatic, but as Abbey states "It is and it isn't". We finally reach the moment where shit blows up with Burke and Cristina. Surprisingly, it is a little anti-climatic and everyone ends up alive. The lead up to this episode is made out to make the viewer believe it is going to be like the bomb episode SPOILER ALERT: it is not even close to pink mist and Anna Nalick's "Breathe".George has gone off the deep end. He is a dick to his Mom, Dad, Callie, Izzie, Cristina...pretty much the whole cast of Grey's Anatomy. We get it George, your Dad is sick but that does not give you the right to run around this hospital sulking and picking fights! Go home.Other important notes: Cristina tells on Burke, Burke shuts a door in Cristina's face, and Derek and Meredith finally have sex. This episode is meant to be drama-town, but is sort of a let down. No one died, Burke and Cristina performed the surgeries beautifully. Now that this story line has wrapped up we can move on to George's mental breakdown...coming soon.SPONSORS:www.thisisaday.comUse code OnCallRoomxADAY for 20% off your first order! DO IT!

S1 E3: Every title is a song ... SERIOUSLY?!

Abbey and Bri talk about the potential of Abbey's eyebrows being ruined forever (don't worry - they weren't) and how young people these days have fake Instagram accounts. #FINSTAS. They also realize that the higher Meredith's ponytail is the earlier the season of Grey's. Bri admits on-air that she is too afraid to start new show and instead she chooses to watch Grey's over and over again. This is the first week that Bri and Abbey utilize the "Dear Shonda" segment of their podcast. They also spend way too much time trying to understand the episode titles before realizing they are all song names. UGH.

S7 E22: Unaccompanied Minor

SEASON 7 FINALE! Spoiler alert we rate this 9/10 scalpels. Not our favorite finale, but still delivers. Derek and the Chief find out that Meredith messed with the trial. She is fired, then she is kept on by Chief because he realizes she was helping Adele. Derek however is unforgiving and leaves her alone.....WITH ZOLA. Yes, they get to bring Zola home in hopes that the adoption will be finalized. Cristina is pregnant and she decides to terminate the pregnancy. This is a very difficult topic not only for the characters, but for many listeners. We try to be sensitive to this conversation, and we ask you do too. In other story lines, April is given Chief Resident, people are pissed off at Karev, and Teddy chooses Henry. This episode is packed with drama, and is a perfect way to round out season 7.

This is bound to create some drama.Addison is gone, doing private practice things and Burke is gone as well. Bailey is dealing with not being Chief Resident and Callie is fucking up managing all the new residents. It is a pretty mild season premiere until we hit the end.Derek and Meredith officially break-up and then immediately proceed to have sex.

S5 E23-E24: Take Her on Vaction

I don't know if we are ready to say goodbye, but we have no other choice. These two episodes are packed with drama, GGBs, heartbreak, and death. That is right Grey's BB's this week on the podcast we say goodbye to George O'Malley. He was a good doctor, who was kind and gentle, quiet, and then got hit by a bus and died. Goodbye forever George.Izzie can't remember a damn thing after having part of her brain removed...which when you put it that way, kind of makes sense. Then Karev says some shitty things to her, and she stops restartting her memory...classic. But, everyone is happy cause she remembers...and then she codes. This of course is all happening while we find out that the person who got hit by the bus, was George. Izzie walks to the elevator...she gets on...the doors open..and there is GEORGE. Tears. GGBs. One of the best scenes we have ever had on Grey's.Another 10 out of 10 scalpels!

S2 E8: A poor man's McDreamy

Scrubbing in with us this week is the infamous username "Iheartjoshhutcherson" Natalie Marcus! She's a joy to have on the podcast, and quite frankly, a joy to be around in general. Bri has finally moved, and tells her story of smudging her new apartment, coping with the move, and finally settling in. Natalie is visiting Abbey from Wisconsin, and Abbey is shooting yoga classes and ladies in their skivvies. The three of them waste no time pouring wine and chatting their favorite characters. They do a quick shotgun work up of the patients in this episode, agreeing four patients is too many. The ladies talk about the poor mans Derek, question what they would do if they were put in Sav's position, get annoyed by George (obviously), reiterate that Izzie is too emotional, and feel all the GGB's for Derek and Meredith in the final scene. The characters are finally developing and perhaps a new storyline is on it's way! Jumanji is mentioned again, because it deserves a special place in everyone's heart. Things are about to shift at Seattle Grace Hospital and we can't wait to chat about what comes next! Also, WARNING there are a few spoiler alerts this episode, so if you don't want to hear them just remember to hit fast forward.

Somehow the girls begin talking about their Hogwarts houses - and Abbey realizes that George and her are both Hufflepuffs. This explains so much. The three girls discuss what happened the previous evening when they went out to a bar - and are wondering why they don’t get hit on by any McDreamy’s. They discuss the relationship traits of Derek and Burke - and wonder why they are so much more needy than the women they are with. They also apologize for shit talking to Shonda and realize that she could easily ruin all of their careers - including the podcast. The episode includes tumors, sad dads and finally some story lines that make them feel things. Including the first occurrence of GGB’s (Grey’s Goosebumps). Kristen leads Bri and Abbey in a game which they call the Bokhee game. Abbey and Bri act out emotions using only their eyes and it’s not the best game for a podcast.
