Mere and Cristina are studying in the hall. When Cristina sees Callie, she gripes about George getting the cards, theorizing that maybe that's why he married her. Mere looks up and sarcastically agrees. Cristina declares that she needs the cards, but Meredith tells her they don't, and forges ahead with quizzing Cristina. Turns out she's quizzing thin air since Cristina has leapt up to talk to Callie. She tries to bribe her with cake and sugary compliments -- well, she's not very good at doing that sincerely, so it's more like Splenda-flavored compliments. Callie doesn't miss a beat in telling her she's not getting the cards.
George runs up to Bailey to find out why he paged her, clearly wishing for a surgery. Unfortunately for him, she only paged him to ask how things were going in the clinic. Because she can't let go. WE GET IT, ALREADY. Come on, in the past this show used to be so much better with subtlety. But I guess that was lost with the George and Izzie Magical Love, alas. George stutters, and Celeste saves him by breaking in. Once alone with Bailey, she quietly explains that she'll need to be tested for whatever Skinner might have, so Bailey just as quietly has George page Addison.
Down in the Clinic of True Wuv, Sydney asks Izzie how things are going, and she says she's discharging Runny Nose Guy. Sydney is having none of that, and chirpily informs her that they need to be all about patient care, taking some well-aimed shots at Bailey and implying that she only cares about the clinic so that she'll become chief resident. She orders Izzie to do a nasal lavage on the guy, which she promises will be "restorative." She sends her back while chirping, "Rinse and repeat! Rinse and repeat!" How has this girl gotten this far in her career without someone offering to de-chirp her?
