Meredith: "Some of us just have to move on to plan B and make the best of it." Cristina gets home and silently crawls into bed with Burke. He waits for her to talk. She finally says it should be small, with just Meredith, and Derek if he wants, and a Justice of the Peace. No religion. No veil. "I don't want to get married with a mosquito net all over my face." He puts his arms around her, happy that he's convinced his girlfriend that he'll leave her if she doesn't conform to his wishes for how their relationship should be. Aw.
Derek and Meredith also cuddle in bed. She admits he was right about Mark using her mom's memory to win points in the race for Chief. I'm trying not to be distracted by the fact that she appears to be wearing silver leggings, which are an... interesting... loungewear choice. She asks Derek if he knows what's weird. "It's exactly what she would have wanted." They agree that Dead Mommy is proud. That looks so sick in print, but Meredith is really working through her issues, and it's refreshing, and I'm happy to see her grow like this. She asks him how his interview went and he admits not well, as he was distracted. Of course, when she asks he won't say what his distraction is, but she gets it, and flips his question on him. "On a scale of 1 to 10, how bad is it?" He answers that it's an eight, but some kissing and some rolling around quickly start to bring the number down. "And sometimes, what we want is exactly what we need.
But sometimes... " Izzie is in her bedroom, manically pulling all of the sheets off her bed and balling them up. George is back with Callie at the hotel, and she reads in bed as he stares at the ceiling. She can still smell his clothes but is joking about it this time, and he apologizes. Then once more, clearly for much more than rank clothing, he mumbles, "Again, I'm so sorry." He stares at the ceiling while Izzie, on her stripped mattress, cries. Meredith: "Sometimes, what we need is a new plan." Yes. A new plan. But if you're the writers of a really well-written television show, you might want to make sure your new plan makes any sense at all before you try to implement it. Just an idea.
