Code Grey(s) A weekly podcast that dissects the anatomy of Grey’s Anatomy–starting with Season 1, Episode 1. Follow us on twitter @Code_Greys_

Welcome to another episode of Code Grey(s)! This week we're no less pissed off but we do spend less time cocooned in our anger. Instead, we talk for far too long about: Cherie Jaffe, a character who is not even in this episode nor indeed this show; our episode summary (04:44); You get a quint! You get a quint! Everybody get's a quint! Plus how Addison torpedoes Izzy's future in Peds (08:14); how the second coming of cherie jaffe helps Cristina find a piece of her missing humanity (20:42; HOT TAKES on mint chocolate chip ice cream (23:15); is Izzy's rage-stroke over Meredith warranted? (35:50); and our BITS (41:30) including our disturbing Medical Fact of the Week: the widespread use and consequences of solitary confinement (53:51).

See you next week!
