Ellen Pompeo picks the best Grey’s Anatomy moment of all time

As the star of the show, Ellen Pompeo reflected on her favorite Grey’s Anatomy moments. During an interview with Entertainment tonight, the actress showed off her two top picks. Surprisingly, both occur in the second season. The first takes place in the season premiere “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head”, which picks up where the previous season left off. The narrative primarily centers around the breakup between Meredith Gray and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) following the unexpected arrival of his wife, Addison Forbes Montgomery (Kate Walsh). Despite the dramatic revelation, Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) isn’t doing so well either. She’s trying to work through her messed up relationship with Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington), which is complicated by the fact that she’s pregnant.

Christina’s only true love is her job, so she decides to have an abortion. After the dust settles, Christina and Meredith take a moment to evaluate their lives. Cristina admits that she needed to assign an emergency contact, so she gave them Meredith’s name. “You’re my man,” she tells Meredith in what remains one of Pompeo’s favorite conversations (via YouTube). It’s a phrase that the characters often repeat to each other, a short expression of love that perfectly sums up their friendship. The scene confirms what was shown in the first season: no matter what challenges they face along the way, Meredith and Christina will always be together.
