** TheEeyore: To the point she used to call herself "[[DarkAndTroubledPast dark and twisted]]". Eventually with CharacterDevelopment (and a little help from therapy) she grows out of it a good deal.

* HenpeckedHusband: There's very few people he's more straight up obedient towards than Adele.



* NotSoAboveItAll: There is one instance where he helps Alex to pull off pranks on a male nurse who Alex really dislikes. He became quite more relaxed ever since he forwent his job as Chief of Surgery.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSubstitute:
** To Meredith. Having an affair with her mother and contributing to her broken childhood by means of BystanderSyndrome is a source of deep guilt to him, and he has a strong fatherly and protective instinct towards her. It takes Meredith a while to fully accept it.
** To Jackson in later seasons, after marrying his mother Catherine. Interestingly, ''both'' Meredith and Jackson have desconstructed Richard's role as this in different occasions by reminding him that he is not their father, and Richard admitted as much, but reconstructed as their relationships still stand as this anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* BrainyBrunette: While it's a given since she's a doctor, Callie is also noted to be very applied in studies. Her study cards for the interns' exams are considered legendary, and she also has a infallible "Torres Method" for studying, which ''Dr. Webber'' directly asks her to share with Meredith in order to help the latter in the resident's exams.

** Also for Alex. Though they were at odds with each other at first, Meredith eventually became one of the few people Alex would open up and talk to aside from Izzie (who was his LoveInterest and who he had a KissSlapKiss relationship for the most part anyway). Indeed when he [[KickTheMoralityDog tells on Meredith on season eight]], Cristina calls him on it by saying that he has just hurt the one person who ever cared about him.

%%* BlackAndNerdy

to:

%%* BlackAndNerdy* BlackAndNerdy: If we're to believe the descriptions of her as a teenager: she was part of the school band, was smart enough to tutor other students and has some knowledge of science fiction which she retains to this day.
* BrutalHonesty:
** To the point people ''expect'' her to lay TheReasonYouSuckSpeech lectures every time they do something wrong.
** When Burke asks her in season two what she really thinks of his character, Bailey says she isn't supposed to, since he is her superior. He tells her she can be completely honest for the next 30 seconds. She proceeds to totally tear him down, and when he tries to interrupt, she says she still has a few seconds left.
* DeadpanSnarker: Nearly from her first appearance.

** In season 9 when she and Webber are accompanying the survivors of the plane crash on their flight back to Seattle she tells Dr Webber she keeps thinking they're [[Series/{{Lost}} going to crash on a tropical island and be attacked by a polar bear]].

to:

%%* NotSoAboveItAll
* OneOfUs: NotSoAboveItAll: In earlier seasons she was usually portrayed as the OnlySaneMan in a hospital full of relationship drama. Eventually Bailey got enough storylines that show that she can be just as quirky as any of the other characters.

* ParentalFavoritism: Played with. The interns are not actually her children, but she refers to them as such several times in later seasons, claiming to have raised them, and in season nine she admits to Grey she had a favorite among them: [[spoiler: George O'Malley]].



%%* TeamMom

to:

%%* TeamMom
* TeamMom: To the interns, who she several times refers to as her "babies" or "children" ([[DeadpanSnarker no, not always in a good way]]) and to an extent to the whole known hospital staff. If they have a problem or need some advice, they usually go to her, even knowing they might get lectured.



%%* GenkiGirl
* HappilyMarried: To Callie [[spoiler:until they separated]]..

to:

%%* GenkiGirl
* FatalFlaw: Spends an episode trying to figure out hers, due to Mark saying she should know what it is before trying to get Callie back after leaving her to go to Africa and then coming back.

%%* {{Badass}}



%%* Nice Guy



* ButtMonkey: Among her peer residents, who mostly just considered her annoying or didn't take her seriously. They didn't even see her as a contender in the run for chief resident, and when she won the job, it took a ''long'' while for her to get their respect.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When she first arrives to Seattle Grace, much like the other residents from Mercy West she acted a tad rude to others and sometimes had a feel of BitchInSheepsClothing going on. [[BreakTheHaughty After she gets fired and returns]], she is a lot better and plays more the part of TheIngenue and GenkiGirl, though she slipped back into her old part a few times. Meredith even lampshaded at one point, and she apologized saying it was habit.
