Observation 2: Physical Meredith has a very resilient side to her. She has been through so much to losing many people close to her and having so many near death experiences. But she is able to overcome it and thrive. But she can also have a hardiness side to her as well. She is able to be strong and push through it all and make it seem like she is not even phased at all.
Meredith (talking to Izzie): I did not try to drown myself in the bathtub. Izzie: Hey, I ate everything out of the fridge last night, everything -- including a tub of butter. There's no judgement here. Meredith: You ever feel like you were disappearing? Izzie: All the time. Meredith: Why can't I just be that happily ever after person? Why can't I believe in that? Izzie: I don't know what I believe in anymore.
