Throughout this series, the doctors of Seattle Grace Hospital have seen a lot. Not only do they have a constant flow of patients coming into the hospital, but even they themselves seem to get into many difficult situations.

How did George get the nickname 007?
George O'Malley was part of the original group of interns. He was known for being the underdog, but what he lacked in confidence, he made up for in patient care.

Which of these doctors got fired from Seattle Grace?
A lot of stuff goes on in this hospital, that we would have to assume would not happen in real life hospitals.

Addison arrived at Seattle Grace like an unwelcome storm. She had only left New York to try and win Derek back, but even after she realized that was never going to happen, she still decided to stick around.

This was also the location where she started her spin-off series.
Who did Lexie first have a crush on?
Lexie was not exactly met with open arms when she started her intern year. After it was found that that she was Meredith's half sister, people started choosing sides. It wasn't until Meredith herself decided to give her a break, that the other doctors started to lay off as well. There was always one who was kind to her though.

What animal was George forced to hunt?
Throughout the 15 seasons of this show, we have seen our doctors celebrate many holidays together. Some of these episodes have been happier than others, but one of the Thanksgiving episodes specifically tends to stand out in people's minds. It was an O'Malley tradition to go hunting every Thanksgiving, but George had successfully avoided ever having to do the hunting himself. During this episode though, he was not as lucky. His father and brothers finally forced him to pull the trigger. Can anyone here remember what kind of animal the O'Malleys go hunting for? Only one of the answers is correct!
How many sisters did Derek have?
Derek would often talk about his large family. This was mainly due to the fact that Meredith did not grow up with much family, so his in comparison was a more exciting topic. Derek was the only son his parents ever had. Although, they did have a few daughters. Some of them we got to know fairly well, while others were merely mentioned in passing. It was a bit surprising that we didn't get to meet them all after his passing, but that is neither here nor there. Can anyone remember exactly how many sisters were a part of the Shepherd clan?
Which intern did Arizona choose to live with?
The living situations of our doctors is constantly changing. Even though they spent almost all of their time together at the hospital already, many of these doctors still choose to live with each other.

A fair number of them have lived in Meredith's house, but we will talk more about that later. Arizona needed a roommate after her and Callie parted ways, and she ended up choosing an intern. Can anyone here remember which intern she lived with?
True or False: Christina first chose to specialize in neurosurgery
Christina Yang always stood out from the rest of her fellow interns. None of them had her drive or determination, not even Meredith. For the first few years, it seemed that Christina was actually more robot than human. She had a plan for success, and she was going to achieve it no matter what. While we all know that now she is a world renowned heart surgeon, was this really always her plan? Is it possible that Christina first envisioned herself working as a neurosurgeon instead? We are going to need to think back all the way to seasons 1 to answer this one correctly!
Which department did Ben work in before switching to surgery?
Ben Warren is the most fickle doctor we have ever met on this show. While he is certain about many aspects of his life, in terms of his work, he is constantly changing his mind. After getting together with Miranda Bailey, Ben decided he wanted to give surgery a shot. He left his well established job, to begin a surgical residency.

Anyone who has ever watched this show, knows how many nicknames have been passed out through the years. Almost every doctor (and even some of the patients) have been given a nickname at some point. Some of them are complementary, while some of them are not very nice at all. BCB was not the first nickname this doctor ever received, but it was the funniest. We will not go into detail about the meaning of this nickname, but needless to say, the doctor in question was not thrilled to learn about it. Can anyone remember which doctor we are talking about?
True or False: Richard Webber once worked as the Head of Cardio
For a long time, Richard Webber was or trusty Chief of Surgery. He had the respect of every surgeon on his floor, and he himself was actually a very skilled doctor. However, after Richard went through a few personal trails, he decided to step down from his esteemed position. For a time he did go back and forth between being chief and not being chief, but can anyone here remember if he ever took up the head of cardio position? Since these doctors tend to switch specialties a lot, this one may be a little bit tricky to answer correctly...
How much money did Izzie inherit from Denny?
After Denny was lost, Izzie naturally went through a pretty rough patch. She left her job at the hospital, and did not even have the energy to leave the house most days.

Pick out the right answer!
Which doctor took Meredith on her first date after Derek's passing?
The love that Meredith and Derek shared was a very special one.

Can anyone remember who she chose to go on this initial date with?
How did Nicole Herman lose her eyesight?
Nicole Herman was the surgeon who took Arizona under her wing. She saw so much potential in Arizona, that she decided she would be worth the work of training her.

Can anyone here remember what cause Nicole Herman to lose her eyesight in the first place? Only one of these answers is correct, which one is it?
What kind of surgery did Lexie attempt to perform on Sadie Harris?
During Lexie's intern year, things got a little out of control. She and her fellow interns were feeling as though they were not learning as much as they should be. To be fair, Christina and Meredith were not exactly being the best teachers, so they weren't totally wrong. However, when they decided to start practicing procedures on each other to learn, things quickly got out of hand. At first they were just trying out routine procedures, but Sadie wanted to take it one step further. Can anyone remember what kind of surgery the interns tried to perform on Sadie? Take a guess!
Who was holding Lexie's hand when she passed away?
Lexie was one of the harder goodbyes we had to say on this show. She was so young, so bright, and so beautiful.

It was a tough scene to watch, but we were all able to take comfort in the fact that her final moments were spent with the right person. Does anyone know who we are talking about? Which of these doctors was by Lexie's side until the end?
What song did Richard and Adele play at their wedding?
The story of Richard's love life, was a complex one. It was clear that he loved his wife Adele very much, but the more we learned about his past, the more we questioned the early stages of their relationship. Richard had also previously been in love with Meredith's mother, so his true feelings for his wife were a little hard to read for a bit. After Adele fell ill though, there was no denying that Richard was struggling with the reality. To ease her mind on one of her harder days, Richard sang her their song. Can anyone remember what it was?
How did Meredith come into contact with dangerous device in season 2?
The episode we are talking about here, was one of the first impactful ones that we saw.

It seems like out of all of the hardships they have faced, this one has been specifically hard for everyone to get over. Can anyone remember what caused the scenario in the first place?
What was Finn's profession?
Who here remembers Finn? Meredith has dated very few people other than Derek, but Finn was one of them. After Meredith learned of Derek's secret wife, she naturally had no choice but to leave him. Derek wanted the chance to give his marriage a second chance anyways, so Meredith had to go out and find someone new. Finn was who she found. The two of them got along really well, and it looked as though they were going to be able to make things work. Derek was always the one though, and she eventually had to let Finn go. What was his profession?
Which intern did Christina take with her when she left?
Christina deciding to leave Seattle Grace was huge news. She had been with the show since the very beginning, so it was pretty hard to say goodbye to her when the time came. However, she was leaving because of an amazing opportunity, so it was hard to blame her for the decision. When the staff learned that she would be leaving, they like us, felt very emotional. One of them actually decided to go with her. This intern had worked very closely with Christina for a while, so it came as no surprise. Which of these interns did Christina take with her?
Which doctor had Mary Portman as a patient?
We have seen hundreds of patients come and go throughout the course of this series, but some more than others really stuck in our memories. Mary Portman was one of them. The fact that she was played by Mandy Moore was already enough of a reason to remember her, but the few episodes she had been in, were also action packed.

Only one of the answers listed is correct!
April and Owen chose to work in which specialty?
Nobody was quite sure what path April was going to choose when it came time to pick specialties. She always seemed like more of a secretary than a surgeon, so it was hard to gage where her head was at. However, after she found the specialty she was meant for, she really blossomed. She worked very closely alongside Owen, and she kind of become his number two in the department. Thinking back a few seasons, is anyone here able to remember which specialty April eventually chose to work in? Only one of the listed answers is correct, so choose wisely!
Other than Mark, who else was an original member of the Plastics Pose?
Mark Sloan was the king of plastic surgery. He took great pride in his work, and he became very defensive when people would accuse him of picking the specialty simply for the money. He worked very closely with burn patients, and he thought it was unfair to judge him based on why others had chosen the profession. When one of the interns started to show promise in his field, he decided to start a group. This group was called the "Plastics Pose". It was a very exclusive club. Can anyone here remember who the other original member of this club was?
Which of these characters took an icicle to the stomach?
While this may sound bad, in terms of accidents our doctors have had, this one was no biggie. While standing outside of the hospital during the winter, one of our doctors slipped. This was probably already quite uncomfortable, but while on the ground, this doctor also got hit by a falling icicle. The thing lodged itself in their abdomen, and stayed stuck there for some time. The surgeons were wary about removing it, until one of them just went for it. Does anyone remember the episode we are talking about? Which of these doctors was the one who got the icicle stuck in their belly?
Which of these doctors once worked as a model?
It is no secret that med school costs a pretty penny. Even some of the most brilliant minds do not get the chance to learn, simply because of how expensive the schools can be. One of our interns struggled with paying for med school. They did not want to take out that amount of student loans, so they had to come up with a different idea. Since they were fairly attractive, they were able to find work as a model. This was something they were later picked on for, but they were the one laughing when the rest of the interns started having to pay back their loans.
How many times was Derek married?
It took us a whole season to find out that Derek was actually married to someone who was not Meredith, so we realized early on that he was a man capable of keeping large secrets to himself. Addison eventually became a major part of the series, but not everyone from Derek's past came to work at Seattle Grace Hospital. While we have found out some things about his life before the show, there was a lot that we never got to learn. Thinking back on all the information we have collected about Derek's history, can anyone remember how many wives he's actually had?
What happened to Christina's face on her almost wedding day?
Christina has gone through her fair share of rough patches, but her almost wedding day was maybe the lease fun of all.

On the morning of her wedding, Christina's soon to be mother-in-law decided to help her get ready. She went one step too far though, and really overtook the look. Can anyone remember what exactly happened to Christina's face on that day? Only one of the answers below is correct!
What did Meredith and Derek use to write their vows on?
Meredith and Derek were not known for being the most traditional couple. They always did things their own way, and never followed what others thought they should do. So of course when it came time to get married, they had to do it a bit differently. They did wait a while for the perfect day to arrive, but eventually they just decided to go for it. They married each other by themselves, and wrote their vows on a bizarre object. Does anyone know what we are talking about in this question? What did Derek and Meredith decide to write their vows on?
What flavor of ice cream did Derek call his favorite?
This Derek fact was actually only ever mentioned one time in the whole series, and it was pretty early on in the show as well. This means that only the biggest fans of the show will be able to answer this correctly. After Meredith learned of Derek's secret wife, she naturally felt as though she knew nothing about who he truly was. In an attempt to share some things with her, he dropped a few nuggets of information about himself. His favorite ice cream flavor just happened to be one of these nuggets. Does anyone know which of these answers is correct?
Which of these doctors have never lived in Meredith's house?
We have already talked about the fact that our doctors move around quite frequently, and we said that we would discuss Meredith house later on. Well, it is later on now, and we are diving into the subject. Anytime that one of our doctors found themselves without a place to stay, they ended up at Meredith's house. Even after she and Derek were married, she always had an open door policy with her home. Over the seasons, almost every surgeon lived at her house at one point or another. One of the doctors listed here did not. Can anyone figure out which one it was?
Which of these doctors were forced to repeat their intern year?
The year these doctors spent as interns, was tough. They would work impossible hours, take on cases no one else wanted, and basically do whatever their attendings told them to. When it came time to take their final intern exam, they were all naturally very excited about ridding themselves of their intern days. One of them however, didn't pass this exam as planned. They were given two options. Either repeat their intern year, or leave the program for good. This doctor was determined to become a surgeon, so they opted to repeat the year. Which doctor are we talking about in this question?
