We open with a shot of a ferry heading towards Seattle. Meredith voice-overs that, in the eighth grade, her English class had to read Romeo and Juliet. "For extra credit, Mrs. Snyder made us act out all the parts. Sal Scafarillo was Romeo. As fate would have it, I was Juliet." We close in on the boat, and see McDreamy looking over the upper deck. Down on the lower deck, as fate would have it, stands Addison, performing a solo rendition of the "King of the World" scene from Titanic. She turns, catches sight of her husband, and waves sweetly. McDreamy, clearly not a fan of Kate Winslet, grimaces and turns away. Burn! MereVO continues to say that all the other girls were jealous, but she told Mrs. Snyder that Juliet was an idiot. Cut to Meredith herself. She's sitting in her car in the hospital parking lot, trying to figure out a way to cover the pimple on her forehead with her bangs. It's not working. Just then, Addison pulls into the space right next to her. MereVO: "For one thing, she falls for the one guy she knows she can't have." Addison gets out of her beautiful car, tosses her beautiful red hair, and stands there beautifully staring at poor, zitty Meredith. Mere finally looks over, and makes a face all, "Oh, hello, Dr. McPerfect. This is not embarrassing at all."
Inside the hospital, Alex and Izzie are having the coolest state-of-the-relationship talk ever. Izzie says there's a discussion they need to have. Alex: "I kissed you. With tongue. And I plan to do it again. End of discussion." Izzie, delightedly: "Okay!" The end! Now that's how it should always be done. With tongue.
Back in the parking lot, Mere has decided that, rather than covering her blemish with makeup or hair, a better idea would be to draw as much attention to her forehead as possible, and is slapping a Hello Kitty band-aid on it. She VOs that her eighth-grade English teacher explained that sometimes choice goes out the window when fate comes into play. She fixes her hair and sighs at herself.
Webber is following Bailey around, asking her if she's made a fellowship decision yet. "Five applications; five offers!" He tells her it must be her year, as everyone wants her, but of course Seattle Grace's fellowship is the best. Bailey just keeps on with her paperwork, all, "Uh huh." I love how Bailey doesn't even give a shit that she's blowing off the Chief of Surgery, as if he's not her boss or anything. "What? Oh, YOU AGAIN." Webber is not giving up until he has an answer, though, so he asks her again. Bailey, not even glancing up from the file she's holding, says she hasn't made a decision yet, and bolts. Webber stands around looking kind of confused.
