Later this month, Grey's Anatomy will hit a feat seldom achieved on television when the ABC medical drama enters its 10th season as a top 10 TV show.
What started off as an interweaving tale of a group of interns struggling to stay afloat at one of America's top hospitals has evolved over nine seasons, becoming a platform for stories deconstructing the human condition, including race, sexuality and — as with any great Shondaland series — relationships.

Inside Meredith and Derek's bedroom on the Grey's Anatomy set, a very naughty Patrick Dempsey climbs on top of his costar and friend of six-plus years, Ellen Pompeo, and admonishes there is to be "no thrusting."
