The girls are all hanging out and notice the lights flicker -- I guess the power outage isn't in the entire hospital -- and Cristina bends over in obvious pain. Of course she won't take anything though, because "Drugs are for babies." If being a baby gets me some Percocet after major surgery, then fetch me a pacifier. Izzie responds by announcing that she hates Alex. She apologizes for her non-sequitur but repeats the sentiment, Mere responds by announcing she broke up with Derek, and Cristina rounds things out by announcing that Burke wants a relationship. Izzie replies, "Boys are stupid." Let's not be stereotypical...but based on this episode, she's not wrong.
George is manically repeating the emergency instructions to try to get the elevator working, even though they clearly aren't doing anything, while Alex tries to get the doors. Pete is not pulling any weight at all; he's moaning about the bullet in his chest. The interns go to the end of his bed and start whispering about how there's a lot more blood and he needs to go to the OR. Pete orders them not to whisper, since clearly that means he's in really bad shape, and George assures him that someone will rescue them.
Cristina visits Mr. Lamott, whose dark room indicates he's in the power-free part of the hospital. He asks to be moved, sounding a little desperate, but Cristina doesn't seem to care and just goes about her business. He can't make the suggested conversation with his wife because she had to leave for the afternoon, and as Cristina leaves the room, he cries after her, "I need my porn!"
