Dr. Addison Shepherd: What's wrong with it? What's wrong? What's wrong is that I don't have time for it. I am out of time. I missed my chance. And now I only have two eggs left. I might as well have no eggs left. I am egg-less. Naomi says she's dried up, I'm the one who's dried up. I'm all barren and dried up. And I've clearly been wasting my time on men.

about Meredith's character
16 December 2008 | by (Islamic Republic of Iran) – See all my reviews

I started hating Meredith's character since the middle of season 2.this session I hated her even more.her mother died a few sessions ago.It was as if nothing has happened.She started calling her 'my dead mother' with such lack of emotion.this session her father's wife dies and she bursts into tears!this is ridiculous!she is such a stranger worshiper.And I detest these people as unfortunately my aunt is a one herself. Secondly,in the previous season she called her mother a whore,though this is she herself who sleeps with every man she feels like and hurts every body's feelings and ruins others lives.And after all she justifies herself!she thinks she's a saint! It's really a pity that such an invidious character is the leading role of this really good movie. I hope that Ellen Pompeo herself,doesn't resemble Meredith at all!
