Cristina and Izzie are walking to a table in the cafeteria while Cristina fills her in on what's going on with the Siebert family. They get to an empty table and find a centerpiece made of headless Barbie-looking Judy dolls, courtesy of Alex. Then Cristina, Izzie, and Meredith demand that George tell them what's up with Olivia after they see him brush her off when she walks by. He deflects everything they suggest might be an solvable problem until a light goes off over Izzie's head. Man, was her hair this stringy in every early episode? I feel like they keep her a lot more brushed and fluffed recently; she looks more like an average intern in these old shows. Much to George's embarrassment, she says he's interested in someone else, but he's not too embarrassed to profess that his feelings are deep and that it's not just a meaningless crush. This hits a nerve with Meredith (who has no idea she's really the subject of this conversation) and she demands that he then end things with Olivia, since right now he's leading her to believe he's emotionally available. "There is nothing worse in the world than thinking you have a chance when you really don't." Cristina, her own nerve hit as well, agrees that he needs to tell Olivia there's someone else, so she'll know what's actually going on and she'll have a chance to know what she should think about George and the situation. He wants to know why Cristina's yelling, and she tells him, "Because of all the estrogen!" Izzie is scared, and Meredith seethes.
Burke is staring at a very full-looking board when Derek walks by. He looks up from texting on his Blackberry to comment that it's a mess. Burke denies it, but Derek is absolutely delighted to tell him that the OR being overbooked means it's a mess. He mentions there being a couple of more hours to pull the trigger on the Siebert liver, just as the hernia surgeon who had his surgery pushed comes in, angry that he was bumped. Derek gleefully points out that being Chief isn't easy as he takes a phone call and walks away. Burke scowls like a pro.
Meredith is escorting Mr. Hubble to the ER, and playing Twenty Questions to guess why he'd ingest the doll heads. It wasn't to attract attention, nor any other reason she has come up with so far. When she asks again why ten doll heads, he tells her that eleven would have been too many, like it's the most logical thing in the world. I keep feeling a bit uncomfortable about this guy being mentally competent to okay his own surgery, but I'm pushing that aside for the story (or assuming they're allowed to do what they need to since his life could be in danger).
