It's still raining. Derek and Meredith wait with Anna, and Derek comments to her father that the shaman is late. He replies that his shaman is never late. Derek seems...amused? Because a race between a shaman and paralysis is an entertaining thing?
As Izzie watches the surgery from behind Burke, she comments to some other looky-loos that "Poor George doesn't have the steadiest hands." Bailey turns and points out that George can hear her. I wonder, was it that comment that started the slow burn of true love that would be gloriously realized at the end of Season Three? Because I can totally see that. The firemen arrive to open the doors, but Burke orders them to wait. "I have an open chest and a very nervous intern in there." Burke, Bailey just pointed out that he can hear you. George then makes it through and manically yells that he didn't cut the heart or the lungs. Burke then instructs him to do a pericardiotomy, and without hesitation George rattles off the supplies he'll need. Burke looks terribly proud.
Cristina is in Henry's room, instructing him that if he ever tells anyone about what she's going to do, "not only will I kill you but I will sell your body parts for cash." He nods, and she takes a deep breath and says dryly, "There were these women. Nurses. Three nurses. And they were...naughty. Really, really naughty. Three naughty nurses. Saucy, even. Saucy and naughty and...baaaad." She looks hilariously appalled at herself, but also kind of happy, and as she starts to come up with stuff, you can tell she's getting into it. But then again, it's Cristina -- if she's going to do something, she'll do it right.
