10 Reasons Cristina Yang Will Always Be the Best Character on Grey's Anatomy
With rumors circling that Sandra Oh may be returning to Grey's Anatomy when it returns in September, we decided to put together a little recap of why Cristina Yang is the best thing to have ever happened to the show (not that you needed reminding). If the rumors are true, then we cannot wait to see what kind of havoc she will wreak on the cast. Will she break up Owen and Amelia? Will she become chief? Will she give Meredith the kick in the ass she so desperately needs? We can only hope. So, until September, join us as we remember why Cristina Yang was a gift from the heavens.
She Is a Straight-Up Savage
Cristina may have been dedicated to saving lives, but she is also great at metaphorically ending existences. No one is safe from her put-downs, especially not her interns. To this day, no one on Grey's has been realer than Cristina.
She Dances It Out
When things got tough, Cristina doesn't just mope around and feel sorry for herself. Instead, she dances it out. And thank god she does, because if it were up to Meredith, they'd just hide under a blanket all day listening to Bon Iver.
She Puts Up With Meredith's Crap
As feisty as she is, Cristina has the patience of a saint. Having to deal with Meredith's problems on a daily basis is a full-time job. It's a miracle she is able to fit in any surgery time at all.
She Is Fiercely Loyal
It's fair to say that Cristina and Meredith go through some rocky patches; their friendship is certainly tested. They survived death, breakups, and altar jiltings. Throughout it all, they manage to still be each other's person.
Cristina is a strong, intelligent, confident woman and she knows it. She doesn't need your compliments. She just needs you to do better.
She Gives the Best Advice
There is no one who speaks more truth than Cristina. She may not be the mushy type, but when it comes to matters of the heart, she always knows what to say.
She Does Not Need a Man
Cristina doesn't need a man to make her happy. She doesn't need a man to make her successful. She doesn't need a man to validate her. She just wants them to play with.
She Stays Cool Under Pressure
Even when Mama takes her eyebrows.
She Has Her Priorities Straight
Nothing stands between Cristina and food (and alcohol).
She's Honest to Perfection
Cristina has no filter, and that's what makes her so wonderful. While most of the other doctors (especially the men) put up a facade, Cristina is always 100 percent herself, which is great — apart from when it comes to practicing bedside manner, then it's not so great.
