Bitch Baby and Beyond: Defining the Language of Shondaland

Kerry Washington

If you don't worship at the altar of Shonda Rhimes, you've likely found yourself lost in a conversation more than once.

When did jam suddenly become so sexy? Is "bitch baby" what all the cool kids are saying these days? Why is the color of someone's hat so damn important?

Words that you thought you knew have suddenly seemed to take on different meaning. To help guide you through the complex lexicon of Shondaland, we created a glossary of the most important terms and phrases from Grey's AnatomyScandal and How to Get Away with Murder.

007 [noun]

Hot Topics: Can TV Still Tackle Real Issues?

Anna Faris and Sadie Calvano

Just two seasons in, the CBS sitcom Mom has already tackled some not-immediately-funny issues, including alcoholism, gambling, homelessness, and cancer. Even star Anna Faris admits she was shocked when her character's teen daughter turned up pregnant in the second episode.

"I thought it was a joke," says the actress, who plays Christy, a young mother struggling with sobriety. "I couldn't believe that so early on we would go down that road. We put a lot of trust in our viewers."

Primetime's Medical Emergency: Where Are All the Hospital Dramas?

Kevin McKidd. Camilla Luddington and Sara Ramirez

NBC's ER premiered 20 years ago, changing the style of medical dramas by marrying fast-paced action with richly drawn characters and serialized storylines. Competing against it on Thursday nights was another medical drama, CBS' Chicago Hope.

Question: Can we get a rave for the writers at Person of Interest? They actually had me worried for Elias, a guy who almost froze a baby to death (not to mention John). And super high praise to Enrico Colantoni for giving such nuance to a villain. Probably will never get an Emmy but doing award quality work. I never ever think "Keith Mars" when watching POI. All this with the continuing story of Samaritan. Imagine Elias with control of Samaritan or The Machine!! — Sharon

Ask Matt: Elementary, Selfie's Fallen Star, Murder, Sleepy Hollow, Sons of Anarchy, and More

Ophelia Lovibond, Jonny Lee Miller

Question: I've been a fan of Elementary, and I really liked the story arc last season with Rhys Ifans playing Mycroft. His involvement with Watson, moving to New York, opening the restaurant, concealing from everyone that he was MI6: The whole season seemed to give a fresh twist to the Sherlock history and move it forward. This season, however, with Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond), I'm not getting what the writers are doing. I think she's beyond boring, probably because she has no real reason to be there, and she's splintering the energy I used to feel between Sherlock and Watson, and each of them to Bell and Gregson. None of the episodes this year has grabbed me. Is it just me? Do they have a story arc buried in there someplace I can't see? I'd rather they go back to a crime-of-the-week if they can't do better than this. I love your column, by the way! I can't believe how long it took me to find it, but now I never miss it. — Kay

Grey’s Anatomy Recap: Derek Reaches the End of His Rope – And Who Gets Devastating News?

Sarah Drew

Hope was a major theme on tonight's midseason finale of Grey's Anatomy, for better or for worse. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) may have given up completely on trying to repair their marriage, and Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) found out some devastating news about Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April's (Sarah Drew) baby. On the other end of the spectrum, Dr. Herman (Geena Davis) might have more of a chance at survival than she originally thought, and Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona are making progress towards a reconciliation — though not necessarily a romantic one.

Quiz: Grey's Anatomy plot or Florida news story?

Let's recap:
