Alex can't believe his patient really was shot, as there's barely any visible wound, and no exit wound either. He thinks it's a burn, but the guy exasperatedly says he shot himself and that it was a mistake, not suicide, while he was cleaning his gun. Alex is skeptical.
Cristina is now the one rifling through the charts. One of the male nurses that we see every once in a while for a bit of variety sees her and asks about her IV, which she removed on her own orders. He snatches her chart and reads that she's to have bed rest and get up only for the bathroom. "Nothing about stealing charts at the nurse's station." A guy passes pushing an empty wheelchair, so she gets in it very delicately -- revealing that maybe she's not quite as ready to go as she claims. The nurse claims he's telling her intern on her, but Cristina knows it's Meredith and counters, "Ooh, I'm so scared." She rolls herself back to her room. She seems quite adept with a wheelchair, but I guess working in a hospital probably lends itself to wheelchair races in empty hallways, much like when my 6'4" friend in college was on crutches and our dorm hallway turned into a sort of crutch-vaulting course. Don't knock it 'till you've tried it -- those were good times.
Dr. Ellis Grey is in her bed, shuffling through papers. When George walks in, she demands some test results and dismisses him haughtily to get them just as the Chief walks in. George tells him that things are better since today she at least thinks he's her intern, but then he quietly asks if he can be moved to another patient, as she is no longer a surgical case. Chief maintains that because of the Alzheimer's and how it affects her mood, she needs stability and so he's depending on George for that. Ellis then hollers through the doorway for him to get her some studies. I think it's easier for the Chief to tell George that since he's been skulking around and avoiding the reality that is Ellis Grey.
In perkier patient quarters, Kalpana pops a pill of some sort, and Cristina sees her and starts to freak out that it's not in her chart, even though Kalpana says it's just her birth control. She then also points out that Cristina isn't her doctor and isn't supposed to be there. Izzie comes in and, rather than agree with Cristina, still seems sort of awed by her patient, and agrees that it's no big deal once Kalpana explains that she was taking the pill now so it doesn't interact with the grapefruit juice she had earlier. I still can't quite figure out what kind of doctor or student she's meant to be, but I realized later that this is supposed to be vague and it's not just my mind wandering to, say, how hot Brady Quinn is just for a moment before snapping back into my TV viewing. Izzie and Cristina bicker a bit until they're interrupted by Kalpana passing out cold. Izzie finally punches her in the chest, and her heartbeat returns and she gasps on the floor. When Cristina offers to help, Izzie orders her back to her room, and again, Cristina visibly struggles a bit to get around.
