In a corridor, George chases after Callie and calls her name. She looks back, but doesn't stop and doesn't speak. He asks her several times to please talk to him. She just shouts his name once, and keeps on walking. George notes that he at least got her to say one word. If he gets her to say two more, I'm guessing they'll be "fuck you."
McDreamy's trailer. He walks out of his shower, towel in hand, and screams. There's a woman in his bedroom. She's got this skinny Ashley Judd thing going on, if Ashley went out and got herself a lipstick lesbian haircut that says "I may dress femme, but I'm still a butch in the sack." Ashley Dudd tells him, "Hey, stranger." He wraps the towel around his waist and complains that she didn't call before coming over. Also, her name is Nancy. And then Meredith knocks on the door and walks into the trailer. She starts to speak, but then sees a woman lounging on McDreamy's bed while McDreamy stands there mostly naked. She's stunned, and walks away. McDreamy chases after her trying to explain, but he decides not to run outside in his towel. Nancy seems thrilled to have gotten this reaction. Nancy: "I take it that was the slutty intern you cheated on Addison with?" McDreamy: "She's not slutty. What are you doing here?" Nancy tells him that she's there because he bailed out on Thanksgiving and Christmas and has been spending time with the slutty intern. By the way, they're just now reacting to the fact that he skipped Thanksgiving and Christmas? What month is it in this universe? I mean, we're 42 episodes into the one-year internship period -- are we ever going to get to a second Thanksgiving or Christmas? I feel like I'm recapping Lost. Or maybe Apartment 3-G. ("I see it's later that same afternoon.") (Although actually, truth to tell, I am loving Apartment 3-G and some of the other soap opera comic strips right now. I don't think there's anything on television that can compare to the saga of Aldo Kelrast and Mary Worth.) McDreamy: "I really don't like you." Nancy: "You love me."
The next day, George, Meredith, and Izzie are in the elevator at the hospital. George and Mere both seem kind of sullen, while Izzie is nervous; it's her first day back. She's clearly looking for support from them, and they each are too withdrawn into their own funk to give it. But she's too nervous to really notice. She gets off before the two of them (as she has paperwork to fill out), leaving them alone on the elevator. George and Mere each look at the other (carefully not catching each other's eye), and then George says, "Okay, I'll be Cristina for you if you'll be Izzie for me." So George is going to make really rude comments and Meredith is going to kill a patient, cook mountains of food, and leave millions of dollars just lying around? Meredith says it's a deal, and George stops the elevator. Meredith goes first, telling George that McDreamy had a woman in his trailer. Mere: "She was ugly. Very ugly. Except she was tall and beautiful. And he was naked." George's eyes go wide at the last part, and then he remembers that he's supposed to be Cristina. He scowls and says, "McDreamy was doing the mcnasty with a mchottie? That mcbastard!" Okay, George just used up all 'mc' in the world. I'm calling a mcmoratorium, at least for this recap. (For those of you who don't actually watch the show, McDreamy's real name is Derek, and McSteamy's real name is Mark.) George asks Meredith how his Cristina impression was, and she tells him it was very good. Now it's George's turn. He tells Mere that Callie won't forgive him, won't talk to him, and dumped him. Meredith: "You deserve better. You do. You are George. Seriously. I mean, seriously. Seriously." She asks if she nailed the Izzie optimism, and he looks a little creeped out by it. They decide that they have both become pathetic, and then give themselves a pep talk about needing to focus on their careers. George suggests they take a pact not to date and to just focus on work. They decide that Derek and Callie are dead to them and then bump fists.
