I wanted to create a world in which you felt as if you were watching very real women. Most of the women I saw on TV didn’t seem like people I actually knew. They felt like ideas of what women are. They never got to be nasty or competitive or hungry or angry. They were often just the loving wife or the nice friend. But who gets to be the bitch? Who gets to be the three-dimensional woman?
This quote from Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes perfectly sums up all the reasons I love Meredith and Cristina’s relationship and why they are friendship goals.
