Out of earshot of Denny, Bailey asks Mere if it's a crush, or a flirtation, or is Izzie actually crossing the line? Mere lies that she knows Izzie likes him, but she can't imagine Izzie would cross the line. Bailey: "Uh huh. I couldn't imagine you and Yang would be stupid enough to fall for your attendings, and I was wrong about that one, too." Mere says she's knitting, these days, but she's also thinking about accepting a date with a veterinarian. Bailey: "Grey. Do you actually believe I care?" Mere: "No." Bailey: "Good. Maybe you're not so stupid after all." Hee.
Izzie and George position a TV screen about two inches away from Janye's face. They explain that having the TV this close makes the flickering more intense, which can cause seizures. I'll have to remember that next time I'm running late on my recap. "I'm sorry, Sars! I was writing really close to the TV, and the next thing I knew? Grand mal!" Janye says she normally doesn't have time to watch TV, but this week she's discovered Oprah. Aw. Izzie and George sit back and watch Janye watch the TV, but after a second Izzie can't take it anymore. She grills George about why she's suddenly on the outside of his inside jokes with Callie. George tells her she's being paranoid. And also annoying. Shut it, Izzie. Janye reports that she's not seizing, but she is having an acid flashback. "Does that count?" I'll say it does.
Addie ultrasounds Rose and asks if she's sure about this. Rose says when they were first married, they were so broke that she went on the pill for a while, and Chris stopped taking communion. "When he does that, he thinks he's..." "...Going to hell," Alex finishes for her. Addie shoots him a look, but he is unapologetic. Rose tells them that the reason they haven't had a baby in four years is because they abstained for three. Wow. Addie suggests the pill again. Rose says he would find out, she can't hide that. Alex: "If he found out, what? I mean, he won't divorce you. He doesn't believe in it." Ha! Addie, clearly wanting to kill, says Dr. Karev was just leaving. Rose says she can't have her husband looking at her like the way Alex is looking at her right now, which is with contempt and disgust; she also can't have any more babies. Addie doesn't know what to do, so she stands there looking conflicted. Alex stands there looking evil, which...heh. I'm sorry, I know he's awful, but I love him.
Mere, Izzie, and Cristina take a little snack break in the middle of the day. Mere's eating some delicious-looking ice cream and asking Izzie if she really dumped Alex for a heart patient. Cristina interjects that Mere can't talk; she's going out with a vet. Mere says she's just considering going out with him, and warns Izzie that Bailey's on the warpath about her and Denny, so watch out. Izzie nonchalantly munches on a plum, one she probably stole from the icebox, and which someone was saving for breakfast.
Rose's C-section. After the baby is delivered and wheeled away, Addie starts closing up. She says she sees some extra bleeding. Alex tells her he doesn't see any, nope, sure doesn't, and Addie asks icily, "Are you the surgeon here, Dr. Karev?" Alex looks on angrily as Addie severs Rose's "bleeding" Fallopian tubes. Drums of Drama start to play as we go to commercial.
We return to Addison handing Rose what will be her last baby, a little boy named Joseph. Addie sits down on the bed and tells Rose, "Before we bring your family in to see you, I wanted to let you know that there was a complication with your surgery. We had some unexpected bleeding that caused damage to both your Fallopian tubes. You won't be able to have any more children." Rose's eyes fill with tears, and she thanks Addie. Alex pouts in the corner, while Addie reminds Rose again that it was just a complication. Rose says she understands.
Alex, who does not understand anything that doesn't involve him getting his way, confronts Addie in the hallway. "A complication? Really? Because that has to be one of the most bizarre complications in obstetric history." Addie turns on Alex, and tells him that Rose is their patient, and their obligation is to her and to her only. Alex brushes past her, nearly knocking her over with his shoulder, and storms away. Aw, I bet he's gonna cry about it.
Mere barely makes it into the elevator, which just happens to contain one McDreamy neurosurgeon. She's all teased and grinny, and they discuss Doc for about ten seconds before dissolving into laughter. Mere says she's not laughing at him, it's just that bad sex isn't really something that wives want announced to the dirty ex-mistress. McDreamy says she's not the dirty ex-mistress; they're all friends. Mere: "But you didn't tell her." McDreamy shakes his head, and asks how her day's going. She replies, "The vet asked me if we were together, and I set him straight." Now McDreamy doesn't look quite as happy as he did a second ago. He exits the elevator and bids her good day. Mere looks so cute in this episode, I think McVet might be the equivalent of an entire bag of hamburgers.
Janye tells Izzie and George that she's not taking one more shot of espresso. "I can't! I can't!" Izzie and George have lined up at least twenty paper cups before her, and they tell her that she can kick that espresso's ass. Aw. She knocks it back like a champ, then says, "Okay, the caffeine's for seizures. What are the donuts for?" Izzie says they're to absorb the coffee so it doesn't put a hole in her stomach. Janye thinks this is a fine idea, and shoves a whole powdered donut in her mouth. She groans. "I really, really, really really really like donuts!" George asks why she hasn't had them in so long, and she says she doesn't have time for exercise, and besides, it would be bad to have a sugar crash in court. She then hyperactives, "Stupid court. Court is stupid, because I LOVE DONUTS!!!" Hee. She's adorable. McDreamy walks to the doorway and looks in disapprovingly. Izzie and George jump up, and Izzie, with a donut still stuffed in her mouth, tells Janye, "Good. You're making really good progress." Awesome.
Webber walks into Denny's room as Mere and Bailey are prepping him for his procedure, and Bailey immediately thinks he's just there to check up on her. "Is there something I can do for you, Chief?" Webber asks a couple of questions, then says everything's looking good. Bailey rolls her eyes with her back turned to him. "Thank you. SIR." Ooh! Okay, who do you think would win in a cage match between Bailey and Webber? My money's on the tiny lady doctor.
Back in Janye's room, the archaic video game has clearly been found and implemented. Janye is totally excited about it, wielding her controller and yelling, "Go! GO! God, this is exhilarating!" George tells her to keep going; she only has twelve more levels before she reaches prime seizure potential. Izzie says this is fun, then turns to George. "You know, like we used to have at home? Like, not where you live right now. Uh, where do you live?" George doesn't want to talk about it, but Izzie presses on. She tells him if he has something to say, just say it. Janye has stopped her game to watch this little demonstration. George finally admits that he's upset with her because of what happened between him and Meredith, but we cut away before finding out the rest.
The genius violin music of Eugene Foote plays as Burke prepares to open the man up. He tells Cristina that the music they're hearing is nothing but brilliant. Cut to Rose's husband asking Alex about the complications from her surgery. Cut back
