Denny comes to again. Bailey hands off his chart to Nursyphilis and asks, in a very gentle tone, "How you feeling, Denny?" Denny smiles and says he's doing really, really good, "like an athlete or superhero or some other kind of really healthy person." How about like a demon-fighting father? "You're funny, you're a funny guy," Izzie smiles. "Izzie!" Meredith hisses. "No speaking." Seriously, shut UP, Izzie. Bailey keeps her eyes on Denny, who says that he went rogue and cut his own LVAD line. Bailey shushes him: "You're weak enough as it is, please don't waste energy on LYING." Izzie doesn't care that Bailey insisted on no speaking and demands to know if Denny is going to get the heart. Bailey is saved from murdering Izzie over Denny's half-dead body when George returns with the lab results. Izzie looks at the results as well, and continues babbling about why what she reads proves that Denny should get the heart and why Bailey "has" to sign the charts. "Isobel Stevens, I take my medical advice from doctors, YOU are a VISITOR," Bailey snaps. She goes on that Izzie will not be a doctor in that hospital until Bailey says so. This time when Bailey tells Nursyphilis to take over pumping, Izzie lets her. Damn right. "He gets the heart though, right?" Izzie asks.
Bailey approaches Webber with a hypothetical question about the Denny situation. Bailey points out that Webber would want to remain in the dark about the particulars since he would be duty-bound to report the situation, and the hospital could lose its accreditation as a donor site. Webber, getting agitated about such a hypothetical situation actually happening, dispenses the following edict: "Our responsibility is to the patient, if medically he's at the top of the list, then he should get the heart. Hypothetically." Bailey thanks him. "But practically," Webber continues, "whoever removed the LVAD, I expect to be given names and there will be severe, SEVERE consequences." Bailey "yes sir"s him sadly.
Alex stops Hahn as she marches by with her Coleman cooler full of heart. She realizes UNOS gave the heart to Seattle Grace. Alex affirms that the transplant coordinator called and stopped Hahn's transplant patient from being prepped. "Oh, come ON," Hahn snaps, "he has kids, they're four and five. Do you know how long he's been waiting for this? He's a good person, he deserves a heart." And now I despise Izzie even more. Alex is really and truly sorry. For once, he seems sincere, but I think that's because what he's sorry about is Denny not dying. I'm sorry, too, because we're supposed to be all Team Izzie Willy-Nilly in this shit, but she just pulled something so selfishly INSANE that I just wish Denny had stuck to his considerable guns and refused to give into her fucking daddy issues so that another daddy could fucking live! Alex invites Hahn to come back to Seattle Grace with him, presumably to help with the surgery since Burke is down and out.McWeenie sits by Burke's bed. He tells Burke he could always take up fishing since it is so much more fun than being a surgeon. "I don't fish," Burke says. Burke and McWeenie agree that eighty percent of hand function is not enough for Burke. "Fishing, huh?" Burke says. "You don't fish," McWeenie reminds him with a gentle smile. They carefully knock knuckles, which is manly surgeon code for foreplay.
