* Arizona's very first piece of characterization (besides being perky) is in her second episode, where she reveals ''how scared she is of planes'', wouldn't you be terrified if your nightmares later drastically came true:
-->''"I wish I could get organs delivered instead of having to go pick them up [...] I hate flying, I always feel so much closer to death on a plane than in the OR, don't you?"''

!!Meta
* Fridge Brilliance for Callie being revealed to be such a good singer and named after the Greek goddess literally called "girl with the beautiful voice" (Calliope). What makes it meta? This was no accident: the part of Callie was written for Sara Ramirez after she won her Tony award, getting named that is a bit of an in joke and makes a damn lot of sense.

* The revelation of [[spoiler: Amelia having a massive brain tumor]] explains a lot of her rather erratic behavior over the course of the series. Indeed, when brought in to consult, a mentor openly tells [[spoiler: Amelia that this tumor didn't just spring up but has been compromising her impulse control and decision making for some time. "You are not of sound mind now and you haven't been for years.]] Thus, so much of Amelia's actions and personality that seemed wild are explained as [[spoiler: caused by the tumor.]]

* When Amelia [[spoiler: discovers that she's had a brain tumor growing for a ''decade'', it's her mentor who brings up the key issue: That Amelia has been operating on people for ten years with her judgement compromised, meaning so many of her "daring surgeries" were things no sane person would consider.]]

** Owen and Derek refer to Meredith and Cristina as 'the twisted sisters.' This isn't just because they're so close, they balance each other out. Every time there is a intense trauma (the shooting, the plane crash etc.), Cristina is fairly calm but falls apart afterwards, while Meredith tends to somewhat fall apart during the incident and be fine afterwards.

** I don't know what your metric for faring much better is, but her reaction to [[spoiler: Owen getting shot]] could not have been worse. She basically went on a downward spiral of PTSD from that day and ended up quitting her job. Granted, [[spoiler:Owen being shot right in front of her] was only one part of the reason she had PTSD from that day, but it was a fairly large part.

* Owen did not break off his engagement with Beth until after the decimating ambush on his unit; presumably he also first appeared on the show and kissed Cristina ''before'' that ambush. That makes him a ''three''-time offender of YourCheatingHeart (depending on your definition of "cheating", of course). Yikes.

* Why don't many of the characters name their kids after the people who have died? [[spoiler: Jackson probably didn't want to name his soon-to-die son after his dead mentor, Mark, and Meredith's pregnancy paranoia meant she probably didn't want to name her son after someone dead, and Derek's sisters probably already named a child after Derek's dad. Also, considering how everyone had sexual relations with each other naming them after others probably make it awkward anyway]]
