Word. But, then again, I'm a George/Izzie shipper.
George is just too good for Meh.

I don't know, his brand of adorkable just doesn't do it for me. In order for adorkable to work, he needs to add way more sarcasm, kind of like Seth
I've already mentioned this in the old thread(so, apologies if you've heard it before), but I think there is a strong similarity between George and character of Xander Harris from Buffy The Vampire Slayer- so much so that I wouldn't be suprised if someone working on this writing staff was either connected to the BTVS world, or was just a big fan. Here's my quick thesis on this:
1. Both had/have major love for the main character of the show, but are relegated to the role of 'male best friend'. Time will tell if this will change for George/Meh- but I hope it doesn't. I think it's important for their dynamic that the relationship not become romantic.
2. Both are characterized as incredibly sweet, loyal, funny, self-depricating guys who aren't technically the 'romantic leading man' types, but are attractive in their own ways.
3. Both carry much of the humor of the show and a lot that humor is based on these guys getting themselves into humiliating situations. At the same time, however, both guys are portrayed as the 'heart' or 'conscience' of the show, and are incredibly perceptive, though others don't often give them credit for being that.
4. My personal favorite- both have had Syph!!!
Thanks for indulging me on my theory. George is a great character.

I can see George switching to pediatric surgery, so we can get more AdorableGeorge.
Love it! He could be like Patch Adams!
Also, don't want he and Meh to be together, and I don't think its going to happen, since he reminds Meh and her mom of "Thatcher," Meh's daddy. That would be a little wierd for her don't you think?

He's a smart guy who the other don't appreciate the way I do. But I love how in the last few eps he's gained some confidence, because there's nothing sexier than that. Especially in a man that is already so great.
The fact that he's so close to the girls is just funny. I never really cared for Meh, and agree with everyone that says George is too good, but G/I, yeah I could get on board with that. If I can't be with him that is.
He also has the greatest facial expressions ever. Love that boy

I do NOT think he should get together with Meh ever, but not because I don't like her, but because she and McDreamy are meant to be. I never even considered George and Izzie because I have been caught up in why Alex got weird on Izzie and I think that relationship has a ton of potential - Alex is deeper than people (on the show) are giving him credit for - and can't wait to see how it plays out. I think George will end up with someone we don't even know yet. Me, hopefully.

Even though I do think he's incredibly cute, for me his sexiness comes in because his modus operandi is to first look at what the "right" thing to do is - or to question others to do so. He isn't only looking to make the grade or get ahead of the class - but to do so ethically and with compassion.

Didn't George interact really well with a little girl patient last year,
Yep. I remember the little girl playing with the flashlight and shining it into his mouth, and him confirming that it was her foot when she yelled out "foot" or something. Very cute scene.

I dunno. Maybe I just went for the obvious joke and this show is beyond that. (Oh, when TV is more mature than I am...I'm in trouble)
Aside from all that, I do heart George. And I agree with you all about the sexiness of the "strung out on the scalpel" line. And I really did think he and Meredith had a little chemistry in that scene when she responded to that line.

Me, please. :)
Oh yeah, and I want George to meet a nice, normal girl that's interested in a sweet boy that held a heart in his hands.
As my friend said to a guy in college who was trying to get her to go out with him: "you're not the kind of a guy a girl wants to date... you're the kind of guy a girl wants to marry..." (they got married a few weeks ago). George is that kind of guy. I love his friendships and relationships with the girls. Love his compassion and concern when dealing with patients. I've always had a thing for cool geeks though.

George. He was all iritable, but wouldn't you think that even if he was tired and cranky and they were treating him as a brother/friend type, that MAYBE he would have enjoyed the two women in his bed? I mean not overtly, but just kind of? Especially since he is supposed to have a thing for Meredith?
See, IMO, if George showed any kind of "enjoyment" at them being in his bed at that moment, it would have been a bit sleazy and out of place. Plus it's probably hard to be all "Oooh. Women in my bed!" when they are bitching about other men. Particularly if one is called "McDreamy" and the other is someone you can barely stand.

And I agree, his tendency towards ethics and goodness is what makes his character likeable. He's not just an underconfident occasionally butterfingered new doctor, he's one with a conscience! Also, he has a babyface.
I'd like to see some chick hit on him; and not in the slutty nurse who sleeps with all the residents kind of way, either. Some worthy chick.

Is that a joke?
Am I the only one that has a serious crush on George?
