When it comes to TV best friendships, Meredith Grey and Cristina Yang's bond from Grey's Anatomy is iconic. They should be at the top of every BFF list. It was Meredith and Cristina who taught us what it really meant to be someone's "person." Watching them every week showed us the definition of friendship goals. (And let's be honest: We all bawled our eyes out when Cristina left the show.) If you consider yourself to be the Cristina in your best friendship, you know that when your best friend is like Meredith Grey, you have a bestie for life.
Lucky for you, you've found the PB to your J, and they are everything you need. As perfect as Meredith was for Cristina, she has also always been a great friend to many of the doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, including Alex Karev and Maggie Pierce (her half-sister). That's what makes her an iconic TV character you keep rooting for season after season.
Most people have to tune in to new episodes or re-watch the series to get their fill of Meredith, but luckily for you, she's so much more than just a TV character. You have a real-life bestie who is just like Meredith, and proves their awesomeness by having these eight things in common with Dr. Meredith Grey.
Your best friend makes even the worst days so much better. Hopefully your bad day doesn't involve shaving your eyebrows, but even if it did, you know your best friend will be there to make everything alright.
It was made very clear to Derek that Meredith and Cristina were two peas in a pod, and he would have to accept that. Meredith even reminded Cristina that Derek may be the love of her life, but Cristina is her soulmate. Cristina never felt like a third wheel, and your BFF never lets any relationship get in the way of your time together as well.
Let's be real: There is so much drama on Grey's Anatomy that you and your best friend will never have to deal with. However, it was super relatable whenever Meredith and Cristina vented to each other after having a hard day. You know that if there is anything weighing on your mind, your best friend is all ears.
Even if you're chilling at home on a Friday night, you and your BFF are having the best time ever. You can make any activity fun, just like when Meredith and Cristina did their own thing at the softball game. When your bestie is around, you know it's going to be great.
