300 episodes, that is how ‘old’ Grey’s Anatomy is turning today! An amazing milestone of an unbelievable rollercoaster I’ve been on since the very beginning. There have been quite some characters that left the show, but on the other hand we had a lot of introductions to new characters. So far it has been fun to see the characters evolve, interact, survive the most heartbreaking events in their lives, happy… And of course, you somehow have a favorite. My all-time favorite character that joined the show was Dr. Arizona Robbins in Season 5 (series regular in Season 6; YAY!), played by Jessica Capshaw. Of course I like all the characters, because there is always something you can relate to. But somehow there is something about Arizona Robbins…. Her perkiness / happiness factor, her ‘I protect the things I love’ mantra, getting back up after horrible events such as a plane crash and losing her leg, selfless actions,… and I do have to mention that she was a part of my favorite ship on the show, ‘Calzona’, that ended in a not so great way and in the most unexpected way…

I couldn’t let the 300th episode celebration of Grey’s Anatomy just pass without mentioning it on BFellicious.com, I decided to write a few blogs as a tribute to this show. I’m basically talking about a small Grey’s Anatomy blog series, with the focus on my favorite character. I was planning on doing it this week, but I will postpone it to the next few weeks because I have the feeling that whatever is going to happen in the 300th episode will definitely be worthy of mentioning in this series. Plus, I will also do a giveaway! So stay tuned! 

To end this super short blog, here is how we all got to know Dr. Bailey – Season 1, Episode 1 ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ – March 27, 2005. 

Dr. Bailey: Rule number one: Don’t bother sucking up. I already hate you. That’s not gonna change. Trauma protocol, phone list, pagers. Nurses will page you, you answer every page at a run. A run! That’s rule number two. Your first shift starts now and lasts 48 hours. You’re interns, grunts, nobodies, bottom of the surgical food chain. You run labs, write orders, work every second night until you drop, and don’t complain! On-call rooms. Attendings hog them. Sleep when you can where you can, which brings me to rule number three. If I’m sleeping, don’t wake me unless your patient is actually dying. Rule number four: The dying patient better not be dead when I get there. Not only will you have killed someone, you would have woke me for no good reason. We clear?
Dr. Bailey: Yes?
Meredith: You said five rules. That was only four.
Dr. Bailey: Rule number five: when I move, you move.
 
See you all soon!
