Ipecac is the inuit doll that frequently appeared in early episodes of Grey's Anatomy.

Season OneEdit

On the second disc of Grey's Anatomy Season One, under the "Bonus Features" menu, there is a hidden red plus sign that can be highlighted above where it says "Bonus Features." To select it, first highlight the "Main Menu" option under "Bonus Features" and then press the up button. This extra bonus clip shows the cast and crew discuss the doll, its name, origins and a plot to kidnap it.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Inuit dolls are made out of soapstone and bone. Many are clothed with animal fur or skin. Their clothing articulates the traditional style of dress necessary to survive cold winters, wind, and snow.
  • In the later seasons of the show, Ipecac has disappeared. Prop master Angela Whiting commented on Twitter that this happened because the joke somehow wore off over the years.
