I didn't even know they were home. I washed my hands," Callie insists. But again, there's knocking on the bathroom door before entering, there's wearing a top when walking around someone else's house, and there's still that choice NOT to pee in front of people you barely know or like! George leaps onto Callie's bed and snuggles with her. Callie fixes George with what I choose to see as a crazy look. "You have to stand up for me," she tells him, "you have to say I washed my hands." George lies down next her and Callie takes his arm and puts it around her. Note that George doesn't do it himself. "I'm sorry," George says, holding her close.At McVettie's, Meredith hangs over McVettie's shoulder in the kitchen. I hate when people do that. I'm always stepping on them, or spattering them, or stabbing them with my chef's knife. McVettie tells her that she's driving him crazy with the hovering. Meredith prances into a corner and breathes deeply and deliberately. Is she doing yoga now? McVettie might like her Downward Dog. She thinks the two of them could be a mistake. He's a really nice guy and he doesn't want to get involved with her. "If you knew me," Meredith starts. "Scary?" McVettie supplies. "Finn," Meredith pleads. "And damaged," McVettie finishes, "see? I told you." Meredith starts to babble about what he would think if he knew her, knew her family, knew the guys she had slept with lately: "The scary and damaged may actually be more than you can handle." McVettie puts down his glass of wine and is about to make me love him. He looks Meredith square in the face and says, "My mother's dead. She got cancer when I was ten and she suffered for a really long time and then she died. And my father never recovered -- it was kind of like he died with her except his body is above ground and permanently placed in front of the TV with a bottle of scotch in his lap." Hey, I do that with wine! "The last woman I slept with was my wife, and she died too. It was a car crash, so it was quick. She didn't suffer, which I appreciated." Yep, throw in that he sometimes has to deal with cute, dying, fuzzy things, and he WAY out-damages Meredith and her Alzheimer mother, absent father, and several heartaches. McVettie tells her he thinks his luck is changing because he met her and she likes dogs and pony births and has the ability to save lives. "I never said I wasn't scary and damaged too," McVettie concludes. Meredith takes this all in and finally kisses him. She pulls away and they look at each other, smiling.
