She’s my person .” — Dr. Cristina Yang – ‘Drowning on Dry Land’ ( Season 3, Episode 16)
The term “ my person ” originated from the show ” Grey’s Anatomy .” My own personal definition is the person you go to for everything, the person you can’t live without, the person you can’t stay mad at, and the person that supports you in everything that you do. It means you are the person’s go-to.
You’re my person,” Cristina says. “I am?” Meredith responds.
They are Cristina and Burke! She has other (longer) relationships, but Burke is so much a part of who Cristina is as a woman and a surgeon that when he pops up in season ten to lure Cristina away from Seattle, it just feels so right. No, they don’t end up together, but they are forever connected.
Being someone’s person means that you have love in your life that will last as close to forever as this world allows. It’s one of the most beautiful implied contracts deeply embedded in a genuine connection with another. Your person is your person and you are so lucky to be theirs too.
If you describe someone or something as grey , you think that they are boring and unattractive, and very similar to other things or other people. [disapproval]

When Christina Yang left Grey’s Anatomy after season 10, fans were devastated. She moved to Zurich, Switzerland , to take a job alongside her old fling, Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington). Hopefuls thought we might see short scenes of Yang working in Zurich in future seasons, but the wish never materialized.
When Cristina moved to Switzerland to run the Klausman Institute for Medical Research, Alex took over being Meredith’s person, saying that Cristina has left him her shares in the hospital and, “She left me you, too.”
In Season 6’s finale, episode 24, Meredith had a miscarriage from all the stress of the events of the episode, losing her first child with Derek. This would lead to struggles in their relationship as they dealt with infertility.
Cristina bid farewell to her Grey’s Anatomy family during the season 10 finale, after more than 200 episodes on the show. She moves to Zurich, Switzerland, where she takes over Preston Burke’s (Isaiah Washington) facility as director of cardiothoracic surgery. His death is more sudden and unexpected than Cristina’s is.
Last night on Grey’s Anatomy, Cristina Yang , the driven, ambitious surgeon who had gotten pregnant at the end of last season, went ahead and had an abortion. That’s right! Someone actually had an abortion — not a miscarriage, not an ectopic pregnancy, not a last-minute change of heart — on national television.
After a short breakup, Yang breaks the silence and Burke proposes marriage, which Yang accepts after eight days of hesitation. When the wedding day comes, Yang has a moment of panic before she is about to walk down the aisle but Burke leaves her because he wasn’t sure if she was ready to commit.
