-->'''Lexie:''' I'm an adult child of an alcoholic. That is what happened to me. I have boundary issues. When Meredith made me eggs this morning, I couldn't not eat them. I had to pretend I wasn't allergic to eggs and now I have a rash covering my entire body.



* PhotographicMemory: She has such a prodigious ability that she remembers everything, even minor details. This allowed her to ace her residency exam. She got pretty famous among her colleagues thanks to it, and they frequently refer to her as ''Lexipedia''.

* SelfInducedAllergicReaction: In the season 4 episode "Lay Your Hands On Me," when Meredith cooks an omelet for her, due to Lexie's ExtremeDoormat tendencies towards Meredith and her delight at Meredith doing something nice for her, she eats the omelet even though she is allergic to eggs. She ends up getting a full-body rash.

!!'''Dr. Calliope "Callie" Torres (Portrayed by Sara Ramirez)'''
[[quoteright:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/callie_torres.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:241:"Should we clear Trauma One to remove the giant bug from Avery's ass?"]]
One of the first new characters to be added to the cast, Dr. Torres first appears in the second season as a LoveInterest to George, who at the time had just had a chance to consummate his crush on Meredith--she was having a weak moment, with the end result that it [[GoneHorriblyWrong Went Horribly Wrong]]. Needless to say, Callie looks appealing by contrast. An orthopedics specialist, Callie lives in the basement of Seattle Grace to save on rent and get a jump on awesome overnight surgeries. She frequently acts as a conscience to the other characters.

* BiTheWay: Callie is attracted to and has had relationships with both men and women.
* 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.
* CartwrightCurse: Nearly every major character she's had sex with has had something terrible happen to them. George and Mark both died, and Arizona nearly lost her life in the same incident that led to the latter's death, [[spoiler:but still ended up losing her leg in the process.]] In retrospect, Erica was probably smart enough to get out while she still could.
* TheCastShowoff: In the {{musical episode}}. Sara Ramirez was in the original cast of ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'', for which she won a Tony Award.
* CureYourGays: Callie's father brings her childhood priest to the hospital to convince her that faith can cure her sexuality. She is righteously furious.
-->'''Callie''': You can't pray away the gay!
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Iphigenia.
* FullNameBasis: Well full ''first'' name, Arizona is the only regular character to call her Calliope instead of Callie at least to begin with, though eventually she does start using Callie too with Calliope only being used occasionally.
* HappilyMarried: To Arizona, until they divorced.
** AmicablyDivorced
* HasTwoMommies: She has a daughter, Sofia, with Arizona.
%%* HospitalHottie
%%* [[TheMcCoy McCoy]]
* OddFriendship: Callie seems to have a penchant for these.
** With Owen, in recent seasons — which makes sense, when you consider that they were married in the AlternateUniverse episode.
** With Meredith, after [[spoiler:Cristina is gone]]. Callie was never exactly on particularly bad or great terms with her, but they’re more or less confidants now.
** With Bailey, which started more or less during Season Five and stayed through.
** She also has a camaraderie with Cristina, whose personality is nothing like hers, that rises from them being roommates for a few seasons. Indeed when Cristina went through her HeroicBSOD in Season 7 at the same time that Callie was heartbroken by Arizona's [[spoiler: depart to Africa]], they spent almost an entire episode just hanging around together.
* ParentalAbandonment: When she comes out of the closet, her father disowns her.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Mark, despite the fact that [[FriendsWithBenefits they have had sex quite a few times]], but never had any romantic feelings for each other other than lust. [[spoiler:This eventually gave us Sofia.]]
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In season three.
%%* SpicyLatina
%%* SuddenlySexuality
* TenMinuteRetirement: [[spoiler: Along with the other plane crash survivors to protest the sale to Pegasus.]]
* TwoferTokenMinority: Bisexual and Latina.

Added DiffLines:

* SorryToInterrupt: Lexie has an unfortunate knack for walking in on people in the middle of making out or having sex, which results in poor Lexie making the most mortified expressions. For instance, once, she walked in on Callie and Arizona having shower sex.

Added DiffLines:

* TagalongKid: Even though she's not actually a kid, she's the youngest of the main cast and is Meredith's little sister, so she tends to be treated like this trope by everyone else.

* BadassAdorable: She is incredible sweet and adorable, and she is one of the smartest, most promising surgical residents at Seattle Grace due in part to her photographic memory. As Derek puts it: "She has a photographic memory, we're all out of our league."
