Paging Dr. Yang
Sandra Oh is leaving Grey's Anatomy; let's remember her character as the forerunner of a host of recent female TV iconoclasts. I used to watch Grey's regularly and am pretty sure that it was Oh who said (in a commentary on the first season DVD) that something she wished the show had kept from the pilot was the degree of competitiveness that the surgeons felt with each other. Above is a scene from 1994's Double Happiness, which I think I saw without knowing anything about it and is where I discovered Oh.
