Bailey visits the clinic and sees Izzie mid-lavage. Both doctor and patient look fed up with the process, and Bailey is aghast and turns on Syd, who declares, "We've really turned this place around today." This one really does have claws, that's for sure. Bailey asks, "Nasal lavage?" and Syd counters with, "Four visits in one month?" Syd, having more balls than I ever expected, says she understands that Bailey is protecting her investment in becoming chief, but that she needs to be about patients rather than politics. I wouldn't be surprised if Bailey killed her with one hand right now. They fight, and Runny Nose Guy lies down miserably. Once done fighting, Bailey comes over and very gently apologizes to him, which he sadly accepts and lifts himself back up. When he does, she sees a drop of clear liquid with some red in the middle on his pillow, which appears to be a very, very bad thing. He says, "See? This is why I'm never gonna have sex again." Bailey quietly has Izzie order a CT, and confirms that it's definitely not a cold.
In an x-ray room, everyone gathers to check out Skinner's insides, and Mere informs Derek that she'll be right over there. "Easy to locate, right? Girlfriend comes with a GPS?" Mercifully, this ends when they all look at the x-ray, which looks like it shows a skeleton with barbs of some sort. Meredith adds that it looks like "a teeny tiny catfish." Just then Richard enters and tells her she's close, but it's actually a Candiru fish. Cristina is once again delighted, asking, "A penis fish? This guy has a penis fish! In his, in his... wow." It's just like really disgusting Christmas.
Alex goes back to Crush's room; she asks what he did to her. He tells her pregnant women love epidurals, but she counters that she's not in labor. He tells her that this is supposed to keep it that way. More importantly, however, she's mad that she can't even sit up, and is therefore missing "The Seattle Grace Show." He helps her up, and she tells him she's glad they're friends again, to which he replies that he tried to stay mad at her, but it didn't work. Now that they're friends again, she asks if he made a move on Addie and that she has an update. The update isn't delivered, though, since it's at that very moment that she begins to have a seizure, and Alex yells at someone to page Addison.
