William George Bailey Jones or Tuck is the child of Tucker Jones and Miranda Bailey.




Bailey in labor.

William George Bailey Jones was delivered by Dr. Addison Shepherd during a bomb scare at Seattle Grace while Dr. Derek Shepherd was operating on Tucker, who crashed his car on the way to the hospital for the birth. George O'Malley helped coach Bailey through her labor, and she thanked him by naming her son William George Bailey Jones (although he is nicknamed "Tuck" for his father). ("As We Know It")


When Tuck was still very young, his mother brought him into the hospital with her. She took him into an OR gallery, where they observed part of Jake Burton's surgery. She took him out of the gallery when Jake coded. ("Yesterday")

Once her maternity leave ended, she had to bring Tuck into the hospital with her because the nursery was full and Tucker was out of town. When she got paged into surgery, she had Cristina babysit him. ("Band-Aid Covers the Bullet Hole")

Tucker took a year off work so that he could take care of Tuck at home. Miranda always felt bad about not having enough time to spend with him so she started to call them from the hospital, once making a late-night call to sing "God Bless the Child" to him. ("Staring at the Sun")

Once, he flooded his house after sticking a toy down the toilet.



Baby Tuck

One day, Tuck went to his mother's office in search of her and a bookshelf fell on him. Tuck was rushed to the ER so they could assess his injuries. They ran a full trauma panel and took him for a CT. The CT revealed that his stomach was in his chest and his colon was ruptured. They took him into surgery. When Bailey came into the OR while they were operating, Erica stopped and refused to continue until Bailey left. In order to get her to leave, Cristina agreed to hold Tuck's hand. The surgery was successful, but there was still fluid in his chest, so they didn't know how soon he'd be able to breathe on his own. Desperate to help her son, Bailey invited a faith healer, Elizabeth Archer, to do a healing ritual on Tuck. Afterward, he started breathing on his own and was able to be extubated. ("Lay Your Hands on Me")

Conflict at Day CareEdit

When he was fourteen months old, he punched someone in his day care named Harrison over a graham cracker. Bailey had to bribe the director to keep Tuck there with medical perks for some of the staff and supplying fruit slices. Tucker told her it had happened numerous times before. ("Losing My Mind")

Disappearance From DaycareEdit

While his mom was treating Holly Wheeler, a kidnapping victim, she came to collect Tuck from the hospital daycare to find he was not there. She had been deeply disturbed by the circumstances under which Holly had been abducted from the street by her kidnapper and she jumped to the conclusion that the same had happened to Tuck. It turned out that he had been taken to see a nurse as he had a nose bleed and was reunited with Miranda just after she insisted that another teacher call a 'Code Pink'. ("The Girl with No Name")

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • George has a very close relationship to Tuck, as a result of him supporting Miranda during labor. He offers himself to take care of Tuck or entertain him whenever Tucker and Miranda are about to have a fight in the hospital.
  • Tuck dressed as a mad doctor for Halloween.
  • He plays the French horn. He was terrible at it at first, but Bailey didn't allow him to quit, and now he's first chair. ("Sledgehammer")
