Izzie been called in to Charlie's room, where he's pulling off all of his monitors, and Izzie has the only reaction she does to anything anymore -- exasperation He says he's sick and tired of waiting, and she counters that she's sick and tired of going to his room every five minutes. He wants to help his death along, so finally, pissed that she's got to attend to an unhappy patient, she yells that she'll help. She begins pulling more monitors off and yanking cords, all the while yelling at him about how none of it seems to be helping him die. On a roll with her self-righteous, sarcastic rant, she doesn't notice that Charlie's gone silent until Ubiquitous Male Nurse tells her so, and they jump into action as Charlie codes. (If he wanted to die so much, why didn't he sign a DNR form? Oh, that's right, then he couldn't be Izzie's Lesson Angel of the week.) She's terrified: "I swear to God I didn't do anything." More's the pity, because surely with her record this latest peccadillo would get her booted.
They shock Charlie, and after the second shock they get him back. Izzie calls his name and he begs, "Stop saving my life!" She rolls her eyes at...his lack of gratitude? I guess she was expecting "Thanks for your mean, condescending sarcasm. It made me really feel like I had something to live for after all."
George is helping wheel Connie into surgery; she can't believe she said all that she did. To his credit, George looks fairly guilty about it all. She asks if he thinks she hurt their feelings too badly and if they'll forgive her, and then grabs him and accuses him, "You told me to!" And that he said it would be okay. "I'm REALLY sorry." Kind of a Band-Aid on a knife wound there, George.
Lexie reports to Bailey, saying Mere sent her down there, and an unamused Bailey asks why. "Truthfully? She didn't want to work with me anymore. She kicked me out." Bailey tells her to go back and tell Mere the clinic is not a dumping ground. "We are not the Island of Broken Interns." Aw, with a reference like that, now I can just imagine Bailey secretly settling in to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with some hot cocoa every December. Lexie goes after Bailey and begs her to not have to do that, saying she can't work with Meredith. "I can't work with her because I can't look at her. She hates me, she hates my dad, she obviously hated my mother, and I am...please." I know she's hurt, but I do think that's unfair. Does Lexie think that Meredith actually chose to kill her mother? Because if that's the case, then she should be saying something stronger. To the cops and the medical board. She begs, and Bailey sends her off to do stitches.
