Well....our patterns DO tend to repeat in our lives (until we learn the lesson), don't they? Makes sense to me!
I loved it that Meredith was right about the clip size, and stuck to her guns. Noticed that when the applause started in the OR for her first successful aneuryism surgery, it was NOT Derrick who started the applause, like the Chief had said it would be.....in fact, Derrick didn't get on board and give her the deserved/earned praise until the very last. It was hard for him to give it up. He was being quite jerky....and the whole OR staff saw that.
Maybe SHE'S too good for HIM!
