If a storyline from Grey's Anatomy demonstrated a point I wanted to make in an essay, how inappropriate would  it be to cite it?
What if it was really, really pertinent?

Depends on the essay, anything less than super super formal I'd cite.

eh, I'd put it in, but I'm like that. I think for Phil that would be totally fine (but you can get away with nearly anything in those) and in psych it would depend if the person marking had a sense of humour.

Unless postgrad is a lot more stuffy than undergrad I'd expect it to be fine as a illustrative example of your point.

I think it's not just appropriate, but also your duty. *nods*
