|Alex and Meredith are talking.|
February 26, 2006
- "Okay, so, sometimes even the best of us make rash decisions. Bad decisions. Decisions we pretty much know we're going to regret the moment, the minute, especially the morning after. I mean, maybe not regret, regret because at least, you know, we put ourselves out there. But...still. Something inside us decides to do a crazy thing. A thing we know will probably turn around and bite us in the ass. Yet, we do it anyway. What I'm saying is...we reap what we sow. what comes around goes around. It's karma and, any way you slice it...karma sucks. Like I was saying payback's a bitch. One way or another our karma will leave us to face ourselves. We can look our karma in the eye or we can wait for it to sneak up on us from behind. One way or another, our karma will always find us. And the truth is, as surgeons, we have more chances than most to set the balance in our favor. No matter how hard we try we can't escape our karma. It follows us home. I guess we can't really complain about our karma. It's not unfair. It's not unexpected. It just...evens the score. And even when we're about to do something we know will tempt karma to bite us in the ass...well, it goes without saying. We do it anyway."
- —George O'Malley
The morning after the night before and the repercussions of George and Meredith unravel, while another doctor has eyes for George. Although on maternity leave, Bailey still works when Addison asks her for a personal consult.
Full Summary Edit
No one knows what transpired between George and Meredith, and after what did happen, weren't talking, but everyone knows something happened. They suffer in silence over their transgression until everything bubbles to the surface, and once the secret is spilled, it's only a matter of minutes before George spills, too down a stairwell, where he dislocated his shoulder and then meets a fan of his. Addison suffers for her transgression, too, in the form of poison oak on her va jay jay.
When not performing bedside surgery on a little boy, Derek is trying to be Meredith's friend for once (especially when it looks like she might not have any other friends). Alex and Izzie get to treat Denny again but Izzie treats him much better. In addition to Denny, Burke has a male patient with a very delicate aneurism on his heart that can burst at any moment and knowing that leads the man's fiancée to leave him. Cristina and George are also on the case. After more self pity from George, Cristina tells him to suck it up and George does he moves out. But only to wind up on Burke and Cristina's couch (much to her chagrin).
