Romance in the (TV) workplace
'Grey's Anatomy'Meredith and Derek
Surgical intern Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and attending surgeon Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) began their romance before they realized they were co-workers. By the time they saw each other at the hospital, the seeds of mutual attraction had already been planted. Though it earned them plenty of chagrin from the other doctors, the couple endured — that is, until Derek's wife, Addison, showed up. Derek and Addison eventually divorced. He and Meredith got back together, but Meredith's instability proved to be a roadblock in their relationship and the two wavered in on-again off-again limbo.
