Meredith Grey (voiceover): Intimacy is a four syllable word for "Here's my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy." It's both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without. Intimacy also comes attached to the three R's: relatives, romance, and roomates. There are some things you can't escape. And other things you just don't want to know.
And Merry Christmas to you!
