The series focuses on Meredith Grey, a surgical resident trying to live up to the reputation of her famous mother, the brilliant Dr. Ellis Grey. After spending years taking care of her Alzheimer-stricken mother (who has since passed on) and failing to have a satisfying relationship with a man, Meredith continues to attempt to have a committed relationship with Dr. Derek Shepard (a.k.a. McDreamy).
Joining Meredith at Seattle Grace:
Cristina Yang - An incredibly talented and super competitive surgeon with very little empathy for her patients and fellow doctors. She was left at the altar by Dr. Preston Burke at the end of season three. Cristina is now married to fellow surgeon Owen Hunt.
Alex Karev - A bold and overly confident surgeon with a penchant for the ladies.
Miranda Bailey - Referred to as "The Nazi" because of her tough, no nonsense attitude with her interns and residents, but deep down, Miranda is fiercely loyal and would sacrifice everything for one of her fellow doctors.
Richard Webber - He may run the hospital, but Richard is the first to admit that he makes mistakes just like the rest of the doctors under his command.
Derek Shepherd - Derek is the love of Meredith's life and her "Post-It" husband. This incredibly brilliant neurologist isn't afraid to take chances - both on and off the operating table.
