|“||Disappearances happen in science. Disease can suddenly fade away, tumors go missing, and we open someone up to discover the cancer is gone. It's unexplained, It's rare, but it happens. We call it mis-diagnosis, say we never saw it in the first place, any explanation but the truth. That life is full of vanishing acts. If something that we didn’t know we had disappears, do we miss it?||”|
A catastrophic mass casualty incident has the interns (sans Cristina) sent into the field with Bailey to do damage control. Back at the hospital, the Chief has dyed his hair and Addison is the only person who defends him. Cristina wants to tell Meredith about her engagement, and wants Meredith to hear it from her first - not easy when word begins to spread among the attendings.
Meredith is lying in a tub still and suddenly she's goes under. Derek comes in and wonders what she's doing. He calls her name and pulls her out of the tub and then leaves. Moments later, Meredith tells Derek and Izzie that she wasn't drowning or wanting to die.
At the hospital, Cristina tells Preston to wait until she tells her Meredith about their engagement. She wants to tell her friend and Preston says Derek is my friend. She says to not tell Derek because he will tell Meredith.
Everyone in the elevator including Addison is looking at Richard's head. Derek comes in the elevator and notice his hair color has changed. Addison tells them to leave him alone while the others are saying why the change.
At the newly established clinic, Sydney comes down to help Miranda and her interns practice how to determine patients' injuries. Richard comes in and tells Miranda to put together a triage team because there has been a mass casaulity incident. Cristina stays at Seattle Grace Hospital to handle the incoming patients, while Miranda, Meredith, Izzie, George and Alex arrive and see multiple traumas from the ferry boat accident which caused the container ship clip the boat. The interns don't know where to start first, but Miranda tells them to just go help. Meredith finds a little girl afraid and crying. She won't let go Meredith's hand and so she takes her along.
Derek tells Preston of his love for ferry boats. Preston tells Derek he is his friend and Derek concurs. Preston then tell Derek he is engaged with Cristina and not to tell anyone, but Mark caught that and says congratulations.

Meredith's First PatientEdit

- Leg injuries
- Broken arm

- Izzie Stevens (surgical intern)
- Closed reduction
Rick was trapped under a car. He had injuries to his chest and leg as well as a broken arm. Izzie also guessed that there was damage to his spine and pelvis, but she couldn't be sure because he was still trapped. Izzie used bandages and gauze to treat as much as she could, but decided to reduce his arm break to help with the pain. As she continued to treat him, he passed out. Izzie noted a blown pupil just before he started seizing.
- Alex Karev (surgical intern)
Alex sent a patient to the treatment area to be patched up.
- Facial injuries
- Crush injuries
Alex found a pregnant woman under a pylon. He believed she was dead and tagged her as such, but as he went to leave, he heard her moan and saw her hand moving, so he pulled the pylon off her body and got her into an ambulance to be taken to the hospital. In the ambulance, she had to be placed on her side to bring her blood pressure up. They took her from the ER to get tests and then scheduled surgery.

Carly, 45, was injured, but was more concerned with finding her son than getting treated. She finally agreed to surgery when George lied and told her they found her son.
Derek and Meredith bandaged a patient before sending her to the hospital.
Bailey rode back to the hospital with a patient.

Meredith treated a man who had a large gash on his leg. She stitched his wound up and set him to go to the hospital, but he lashed out and knocked Meredith off the pier into the water.
- Callie Torres (orthopedic surgery resident)
Callie told George she had a patient who needed surgery. The patient was later identified as Chris Height.
Alex brought a list of identified patients to the group waiting in the ER: John Jay Anders and Curt Demorat were on the list.

Behind the ScenesEdit
- Callie: This is weird. Weird. This is weird, right?
- Bailey: I need more triage tags...
- Callie: Working with someone I’m married to is weird. Here, I’m his boss and his wife. At work, I’m giving him orders, in bed... He’s giving me...
- Bailey: Stop! Right there, I don’t need to know this. I’m tired, I’m busy. While I will concede that you and O’Malley have some challenges to overcome, I’m asking you to remember that this day is a marathon and my mind can only hold what it needs to know, your sex life cannot be held in my mind today... Ever! It cannot be in my mind ever! Never!
- Callie: Whatever.
- Cristina: Meredith, I have a thing...news.
- Meredith: You’re not pregnant again, are you? 'Cause I can’t handle the extra months of bitchiness.
- Addison: (to Richard) I dyed my hair blonde... the day after Derek moved out. Change is good. Your marriage is over, you're starting over. So am I.
- Richard: (to Mark) What's the news?
- Mark: Shepherd and Grey are on the rocks. Burke and Yang got engaged. You need highlights in your hair. That's why it looks so odd. I'm gonna go save lives.
- Alex: (to Jane Doe) Hey. I'm not going to be able to make it to your surgery today. (she reaches for his hand and grabs it) Here's the thing. You were crushed by a pylon. Dozens of people on that ferry boat died, but you're alive, so when I come back to check on you later, you better still be alive. Do you hear me?
