    5×08 – These Ties That Bind
    I don’t have beliefs, I have science.

    In Mary’s words…

    It’s been a wonderful experience. Grey’s has to do with social nuance and behavior between people, and this is a character who can’t really relate to any of that. She comes in and brings a little bit of a different behavior to Seattle Grace. [from “‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Exclusive: Mary McDonnell’s Secret Revealed!” by Michael Ausiello]
