Cut to Izzie, kneeling by Denny's bed and looking like she's saying the mother of all prayers. She takes his hand, and he wakes up. "Hey. Don't you have somewhere to be?" Izzie: "Yeah. I'm there." Uh huh. MereVO: "But the world is full of unexpected twists and turns. And just when you've gotten the lay of the land, the ground underneath you shifts and knocks you off your feet."
Cristina arrives home to find her beloved and George engaged in a fantastical jazztastical jam session. George is playing the clarinet in the gayest way possible, and Burke is hotly Miles Davising on the trumpet. Cristina tries to pretend that she hasn't witnessed this affront to music, and walks into her bedroom. MereVO: "If you're lucky, you end up with nothing but a flesh wound. Something a Band-Aid will cover."
McDreamy checks on Natalie Cole, who has survived her surgery and is happily resting with Kyle, then we cut to the Airstream. MereVO: "But some wounds are deeper than they first appear, and require more than just a quick fix." Addison is in bed reading. McDreamy, having learned a valuable lesson from Natalie, flops down on the bed and makes his confession. "I was indifferent. In New York, before Mark. I was indifferent towards you. And I was absent. I'm partly to blame for what's happened to our marriage." Addison's like, "Yeah." McDreamy says he's sorry, and he's working on it. Addison, looking even more beautiful than Catherine Deneuve, takes off her glasses and says, "Okay." MereVO: "With some wounds, you have to rip off the Band-Aid, let them breathe, and give them time to heal." And with that glimpse at a marriage in peril, we fade out.
