A Painfully Long Elevator Scene
Elevator sequences are definitely a staple of the hospital, but these scenes always go on for an unbelievably long amount of time. A perfect example happened quite recently in season 13. Meredith talks to DeLuca about her experience as the victim of a beating, and the scene is easily up to two minutes long. Shouldn't hospital elevators be lightning fast? Isn't time of the essence when you're a doctor? Doesn't every second count?!
