The interns all follow Bailey to wherever they're going next, and George says, "So um...um, Dr. Bailey?" Bailey, who must have memorized the FAQ in her spare time, responds, "Surgeons don't say 'um,' Dr. O'Malley. If you're going to be a surgeon, learn to speak like one." Yeah, and quit signing your posts, you little son of a bitch! George hesitates so long that Alex finally speaks up and tells Bailey, "He wants you to talk to the Chief about Izzie; see if she can come back." George informs Bailey that Izzie's been doing a lot of baking, and it seems a waste for all her talent and medical skills to go into muffins. Bailey stops and turns slowly around to face them. "Stop. Talking." She turns back around and keeps walking. Yes, that went very well.
McDreamy bounds into the hospital room just as they're getting to the next patient, and greets "Benjamin" (the patient) and "Ruth" (his sister) a good morning. Benjamin says it's not a very good morning to him -- he has to have brain surgery. McDreamy turns to Meredith to give her some quick bedroom eyes, as Benjamin continues. "Brain surgery. It's pretty scary. Plus my sister's nervous, and when she gets nervous she sweats." Hee. Same here, but much more of it. He asks his sister if he was rude, and she nods slightly and tells him to let the doctors talk. The doctors explain that Benjamin is in for a brain tumor that's pressing on his temporal lobe, and is clearly messing with his impulse control. Benjamin clarifies: "It makes me say everything I think. It's very annoying." Aw. He looks at Cristina and says she looks annoyed anyway, unless she always has a pinched, uptight look on her face. Ruth tells them that Benjamin can't perceive sarcasm or irony, so you have to actually tell him that he's being annoying or inappropriate. Cristina's like, "Okay, you're annoying me," which gets her a shove from Bailey. McDreamy tells Benjamin that Cristina, pinched and annoyed though she may be, will prep him for surgery, and asks Benjamin if he has any more questions. Benjamin does: "Is that blonde doctor your girlfriend? 'Cause the way you keep looking at her? You may as well just mount her right here and now." Awesome, and Benjamin's total deadpan delivery just ramps the awesomeness to new levels. No one says anything, all looking around like "awkward!" Benjamin: "I'm sorry, was that rude?"
