Addison and McDreamy continue to argue as they leave the room. Addison is looking at Sav as both a surgeon and a friend, but McDreamy is just looking at them as just friends, and says it's not medical, it's personal. Addison points out that they should be dealing with them as a couple, then, and also acting like a couple. McDreamy asks what that means, which is also a question I would like answered. Addison flings her hand in his face. "See the ring?" McDreamy tells her not to start this again. Addison complains that he doesn't talk to her at work, or even on the ferry, where he pretends not to see her, and he won't even wear his wedding ring, so why are they even in couples therapy? McDreamy says this isn't about them. Addison disagrees: "Medicine aside, our friends are going through hell in there, and we can't even act like we like each other long enough to help them." This is what I am saying.
Meredith is trying to take blood from Esme, who tells her that otters mate for life. She's trying to remember what other animals mate for life; her husband says it's voles, but if they'd listened to Phoebe on Friends, they'd know that the answer is lobsters. They're really a very sweet couple. Esme says she's always liked otters. Mere: "I've always been more of a dog person, myself." Esme and her husband laugh at this and are generally adorable.
OH MY GOD, George is still talking about The Guy Who Lived, only this time his victim is Meredith. He says it's made him realize that things happen for a reason. Mere: "Oh, yeah, my ex-boyfriend moved his wife to Seattle. Reason? To torture me." Cristina walks in and asks Mere what's up with Hello Kitty. Meredith says she doesn't want to talk about it. Cristina asks George if she can sign out to him early. George can't believe Cris doesn't want in on the miracle man's surgery. She can't, she says, because Burke is testing her with this date. "Besides, I've already spent an hour picking bird parts out of the guy." George walks over and whispers in her ear, "Carpe diem." Mere says she's beginning to look how she feels, and he needs to carpe that. George declares this to be the luckiest day in the world! Cristina suggests he tell that to the bird. I would like to suggest he shut it, and quick.
