Greg asked others if they were involved or committed

"Ham or Eggs?" is a metaphor for relationships used by a patient's fiancé in Let the Angels Commit.


Pigs and chickens are used for food. The pig sacrifices himself and gives ham; he is committed. The chicken just puts the eggs on a plate; he is involved. Thus, the question is "Are you committed or just involved?", "ham or eggs?"

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • The metaphor did not originally work on Callie as all she thought was that George called her a pig. By the end of the episode, she understood the metaphor.
  • George used the phrase to reconcile the couple that taught him the metaphor.
