On the Grey’s Anatomy episode “ Odd Man Out,” a man named Griffin McColl (Lance Henriksen) is brought to the hospital after a terrible accident. He suffered from a brain bleed and needed to be operated on. When the doctors update Lena (Jamie Rose), who they believe is Griffin’s wife, Griffin’s real wife Gayle walks in. She explains to the doctors, “I’m the wife, she’s the slut he’s been hitting on the side.” Gayle proceeds to ask if he’s dead yet. The doctors say no and offer Gayle the opportunity to see him. “I don’t want to see him until he’s dead.”
Gayle is portrayed by the one and only Rita Moreno. She’s known for her roles on Jane the Virgin (Liliana De La Vega), Happily Divorced (Dori Newman), Cane (Amalia Duque), Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Frances Goren), and Oz (Sister Peter Marie Reimondo), among many others. She is one of the very few people to have won an Oscar (West Side Story), an Emmy (The Muppet Show, The Rockford Files), a Tony (The Ritz), and a Grammy (The Electric Company soundtrack). Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8pm on ABC.
