The Grey’s Anatomy season 9 finale behind us and fans of TV’s most adorable lady doc couple, Callie (Sara Ramirez) & Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), are no longer waiting with bated breath for word as to whether or not Arizona will come clean with her wife Callie about hooking up with hot-shot new craniofacial specialist Lauren (Hilarie Burton).
Callie and Arizona have survived Africa, a baby, car crashes, plane crashes, lost limbs and a musical episode, but will they weather infidelity?
We decided to take a look at the Trials and Tribulations of Callie and Arizona - a highly dramatic gay lady saga that we wouldn't have any other way!
Warning if you haven't watched the season 9 finale. There are SPOILERS down at the end.
Back in the beginning Callie and Arizona notice each other and begin to flirt. Callie, afraid she'll end up alone and celibate after her first lady friend Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) headed for the hills, needs a little perking up. And Arizona is just the adorable lesbian peds doc to do it -- in the nasty bathroom of the Emerald Bar no less.
Paging Dr. Robbins...
And just like that Callie is no longer sad.
Callie works up the nerve to ask Arizona out, and though flattered, Arizona declines as it’s only Callie’s second time at this particular rodeo.
Emboldened by Arizona's kiss Callie returns to the scene of the crime to convice Dr. Robbins that she's missing out, but the timing is not so good.
Callie finally proves that she's not just experimenting with the ladies and Arizona admits that she doesn’t always make the best decisions under pressure, so they get together. And then they DANCE!
And that makes work a whole lot more fun!
Later, Callie introduces Arizona to her uber-Catholic dad (Hector Elizondo), and it does not go well.
He threatens to cut Callie off if she doesn't end it and leave Seattle STAT, which makes Callie fume in Spanish. And it's hot.
But Arizona fixes everything with Callie's dad, which makes Callie adore her even more.
They say the "L-word" and it's beautiful and funny.
UNTIL….Callie wants to have a baby and Arizona avoids the baby talk by changing the subject...
