As we cut to the hospital, Mere voice-overs, "And then there are the sacrifices that you can't figure out why you're making." Bailey stands next to Webber and Burke, staring at the surgery board. She can't believe her name isn't on the board for yet another day. "Chief, any reason my name isn't on the board?" Webber smiles and gives Bailey two little claps on the back as he walks off. "Slow day." Bailey puts on her oh-no-he-didn't face and turns angrily to Burke. "Tell me! When did I become a person who gets patted on the back!" Burke asks if she thinks Webber is mommy-tracking her, which Bailey absolutely does. Burke gives her Denny Duquette out of pity, and Bailey thanks him gratefully. Man, what is happening to my awesome Bailey?
Cristina bounds up with coffee for Burke, and for no good reason at all this annoys me. Perhaps I'm still upset about Bailey. Perhaps it's the ingratiating look on her face. Perhaps it's because she's clearly trying to one-up George when he's nowhere in sight. I don't know. Burke thanks her perfunctorily, which Cristina takes as a sign something's wrong. There is: he only ran two miles this morning without his buddy George there to push him -- they were up to six together. Cristina's all, "Missing George. Okay, drink your coffee." Burke declines and says he's actually waiting on...George, who runs up with a cappuccino. Cappuccino, Cristina. Obviously the way to Burke's heart is through specialty coffee drinks, probably with extra foam. On top of this, George delivers some great news: Eugene Foote is there at the hospital. Burke can't believe it. Cristina asks who Eugene Foote is. George looks at her incredulously. "Uh, genius violinist? Burke's hero?" Aigh, shut up, George. Just give the man a blowjob and be done with it. Cristina can only watch as her boyfriend and George discuss Foote's oeuvre with much enthusiasm. Burke asks George if he wants in on Foote. George does, but he's on neuro today with McDreamy, sadly. Burke makes an "I'll take care of it, my boy" gesture. George runs off, all happy. Cristina: "Uh, I want in? I laid on top of you naked last night, so why don't you wax nostalgic about that?" She leaves angrily, and while I can totally see her side, at this moment I kind of hate both of Burke's girlfriends.
