The Fearsome Foursome is out in their hallway of abandoned beds and conferences. Cristina is playing with her name on her lab coat and announces that she hates her interns. Izzie in turn feels like a fraud, but Alex thinks he rocked it, and announces that he could be the new Nazi. Cristina rightly scoffs at his delusions of grandeur. George comes in needing to talk to Meredith, but he's interrupted by Izzie asking pointedly and jealously how his vacation was. He says it was fine and turns back to Mere, only to be interrupted by Izzie's stilted rambling about how she spent her time all alone and hasn't talked to him in 17 days. I'm stunned if Cristina and Mere seriously haven't started to suspect what's going on, as she's practically wearing a sign around her neck that says, "I slept with George and am very, very tortured!" She helpfully exposits that the non-wedding was 17 days ago and that Cristina took Mere on her honeymoon, making Alex snigger at the idea of a two-female honeymoon. Izzie continues that Alex went to see Ava, but he denies it and claims that he only drove in her direction, then corrects Izzie that her name is Rebecca. Cristina demands, "Why is everyone so tingly and hurt? I mean, I'm the one who was left at the altar." The others all pause and look at her and she continues that she's fine, she went to Hawaii and she snorkeled. If you've got to deal with a breakup, I think that's the best venue one could choose.
Izzie tries to question George some more but he maintains he needs to talk to Meredith. Just then a gaggle of interns head in and are chased away by the residents, hurling insults as they go. George takes this as his own cue to leave, and as Meredith insists they didn't mean him, he pumps his fist in the air, declaring, "I am an intern!" Cristina thinks he needs to learn how to deal with things as they are now, and Izzie mutters she's just glad he came back. I'm so wrapped up in their storyline that until Alex mentioned George failing his exam, I forgot that, besides Izzie, he had another, much better reason not to return to Seattle Grace. Izzie mopes that he won't even look at her. I am over this enough for both Izzie and George. Meredith and Cristina haven't seen their significant others, but maintain they are fine. Izzie notes that "You're either incredibly healthy or completely messed up." And then all of their pagers go off.
