I'm not sure if Lexie got the test results she was sent to retrieve or not, but she finds Dr. Sloane to ask him about something. Imagine lots of stuttering and superfluous details about her photographic memory from Lexie, and insults from Mark about just how pathetic she is -- it pains me too much to describe them. What it all boils down to is that she read an article when she was helping George study, and she thinks it could help a patient: She thinks that Barry needs an ENT, and -- how convenient -- Mark happens to be one.
Alex has taken Jack in for his CT and is monitoring him from the next room. Izzie comes in and hands Alex the flyer about the apartment, cooing about how she found this place with hardwood floors and an actual fireplace. I have never seen anything that would indicate that Alex is a guy who is going to be swayed by an actual fireplace, but she's also supposed to look desperate, so maybe that's the point? She tells him she can't afford the place by herself, so, "I thought you could get over yourself... we could live together." That also doesn't seem like the way to sweet-talk him into doing her a favor and sure enough, it's not. She again mentions the hardwood floor and the actual fireplace, but he informs her that he'd rather live in his "actual car." He gets back to work while she rolls her tear-filled eyes and stomps out. Richard comes in to check on Jack, wondering if Alex thinks Jack might sue. Alex says he believes that he isn't the lawsuit type, and the two men wait for the image to show up. Meanwhile, the water dripping down onto the machine from above really wants to test Alex's opinion about Jack's desire not to sue. With a giant flash of light and sparks, the CT machine shorts out and the entire room goes dark. Inside, Jack can only call, "Hello?"
Once again, Richard finds himself groveling as he and Alex help a stunned Jack onto a gurney. He can only mutter, "My wife left me. My accountant stole from me. The store I worked at burned down. I was diagnosed with an aneurysm for which I require surgery in a hospital that seems to be crumbling around me. God hates me." Not you, Jack, He just hates Seattle Grace and wants to teach them that they're actually lucky to be ranked as high as #12.
Bailey and Mere are in surgery working on Shelly. They easily identify the tumor and in a sing-song voice Bailey points out that the liver is healthy. She sings about the beauty of general surgery, where they cut out the badness and make everything right, where you and the scalpel are one on one. After a bemused glance from Mere, Bailey drops the singing and informs her, "Okay, this is me teaching with enthusiasm." But her enthusiasm is quickly doused as she sees something that looks really bad in Shelly's insides.
