I like Sandra, and would have enjoyed watching the exchange. Wouldn't it have been hilarious if, when Elisabeth said not to call her honey, Sandra would have said "sorry but I don't believe I know your name"?
I like Elisabeth but have often felt that she's out of her depth there. Maybe she needs a teen show about clothes or something.
Meredith leaving is a huge shakeup, no doubt about it. I really don't expect the show to survive much longer once the shuffling around starts. If there is constant bickering, I'm out.
Oh, and if anyone remembers, I have mentioned more than once that Laura Bush seems to be on serious tranquilizers. She has that vacant, half smile that just never changes. I've waited for her to start drooling on herself.
