Chambers (aka Dr. Alex Karev) isn't on board with things moving into a more romantic direction for his character and Ellen Pompeo's Meredith Grey!

Wilson, who plays Miranda Bailey, definitely had no idea that she would coin a term used by so many women to describe our lady-parts. You have to admit, it is really catchy.

But not just any sex. She especially loves how her character gets to have so much great sex with Dr. Webber.

She might be a little biased, but let's be real, "Calzona" is a fantastic 'ship name!

5. The strangest prop on set is a prosthetic of Scott Foley's head.


No complaints here. It turns out the prop was made when Scott Foley was on the show as Henry Burton, husband to Teddy Altman.

6. That new "Japril" episode was shot on location.

Almost every medical case played out on the show comes from a real, documented patient. The writers look at medical journals for inspiration when writing those crazy cases.

Boy, don't we all. During a panel, Chambers was asked who he'd save out of everyone we've lost throughout the 13 seasons. "McDreamy, McSteamy," he said. "I love them, I miss 'em."

12. The show has literally saved someone's life.


During the same panel, Debbie Allen (Catherine Avery) revealed that a friend of hers found similarities in symptoms with a patient on the show. She realized something was wrong and went to the doctor for a proper diagnosis. She would never have gone if not for Grey's Anatomy.

13. And that episode? Directed by Kevin McKidd.


It must be pretty cool knowing the story you helped to tell helped save another person's life.

14. The set is actually pretty fun despite the drama of the show.


Jesse Williams on how the cast sets the tone off screen: "It's lighthearted...We crack a lot of jokes and save the drama for what's on screen."
