Mere whines to Alex about turning down McVet. Alex could not care less. "You want to do him? Do him." Mere corrects that she wants to date him, not do him; she's not doing anybody. Cristina comes over looking for Eugene Foote's chart, and asks what they're talking about. Mere says it's weird for her to date McVet, right? He's Derek's vet, he's Doc's vet, he's her vet. Cristina leaves the weird part out of it and tells Mere she can't date a vet. "He's not even a real doctor!" I believe that this line, more than any other, was the subject of much uproar in the forums, which...nope, it didn't make me think about it even one little bit.
Addie walks in with coffee all over her coat, just another link in her awful-morning chain. Mere tells Cristina under her breath to run if she sees Addison looking at her. Addie does just that, grumbling, "I need an intern!" Cristina and Mere make quick exits, leaving Alex with Addison. Alex tries to get away by saying he doesn't do vagina. Hee. Addie tells him he just bought himself a big old case of it. Oh, this should be fun.
Bailey checks on Denny, who says he's doing great, and would be doing a lot greater if he could get off this machine. Bailey: "Oh, Denny, you know I would, but then your heart would stop, and Dr. Burke would yell at me, and that would make for a very bad day for both of us." Denny shoots her a charming grin, which I actually find charming. What is happening to me? The moon must be in Jupiter, or something. Mere asks if Denny is a candidate for the portable LVAD. Denny's all, "Now that's what I'm talking about." Unfortunately, Izzie walks in and ruins their fun. "I've already told him he's not ready for it yet." Bailey reminds Izzie that she assigned her to neuro this morning. Izzie says she's on her way there, but couldn't resist sticking her nose in where it doesn't belong. She asks them to tell Denny about all the scary complications. Mere says he would be risking air embolus and V-fib. Izzie adds eagerly, "Yeah, and the tubing could kink INSIDE YOUR BODY, in which case we'd have to rush you to EMERGENCY SURGERY!" Geez. Bailey tells Izzie that, unless Denny's heart has suddenly grown a brain, she is currently not doing her job. Izzie says she's going. Bye! Izzie has to get just one last word in; she tells Denny not to be stupid. Denny shoots back, "You're not the boss of me today, woman." Mere stands there awkwardly as realization dawns on Bailey's face.
