Grey's Anatomy

I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watchin' Me - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Alex is giving Izzy her medication, he is holding a water bottle and an unpeeled banana In his right hand. Then the banana magically disappears and he is holding only the water bottle. Immediately, the banana reappears and it is now peeled. This all takes place in three quick shot which are from different takes.

Drowning on Dry Land - S3-E16

Factual error: Derek performs CPR on Meredith in the back of the ambulance, but he does so incorrectly. He gives one breath and five compressions instead of two and thirty. Also, drowning victims need oxygen, and Derek should have used a BVM to ventilate Meredith, not mouth to mouth. Any doctor would have known how to provide proper treatment.

Factual error: Izzie tells her patient, Cheyenne and her mother, Mrs. Ward that they live in the same town she grew up in - Chehalis, Washington, yet mispronounces it. She says CH-halis (like CHurch) when it is SH-halis like Chinook Salmon.

Dr. Meredith Grey: At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross.
