Dr. Meredith Grey
The thing about being a surgeon, everybody wants a piece of you. We take one little oath and suddenly, we're drowning in obligations. To our patients, to our colleagues, to medicine itself. So we do what any sane person would do. We run like hell from our promises, hoping they'll be forgotten. But sooner or later, they always catch up. And sometimes you find the obligation you dread the most isn't worth running from at all.
