CM is being transferred to a gurney in his room. George is helping Bailey and some nurses. Izzie enters, and Bailey yells at her for not responding to her page, noting that she's assigned Izzie's prep work to George. Izzie makes an apologetic face to George as he wheels CM out of the room. Bailey tells Izzie, "If I hear the words 'Bethany Whisper' one more time..." Izzie tells Bailey that CM doesn't want her in the room, but Bailey tells her that what he really wants is not to have cancer. She says that it's Izzie's choice if she wants to stay in the scrub room.
Through a glass wall, we see McDreamy speak with Jorge and his wife. He leaves the room and tells Mere that they've decided to go ahead with the surgery. Mere seems unhappy with that decision.
Nurse Fallon is having difficulty breathing in her bed. Cristina enters, and Nurse Fallon tells her, "They were never gonna operate." Cristina thinks that Nurse Fallon could have told her, but Nurse Fallon thinks that would have taken all the fun out of it. Nurse Fallon: "Think of it as a hazing ritual." She tries to speak more, but is having too much difficulty breathing. She grabs Cristina's hand, and then crashes. Cristina looks panicky and pushes the call button on the wall. Commercials.
And now it's time for one of the semi-montages that this show is famous for. Pretty music plays as Mere watches Jorge's wife stand up from his bedside and walk out of his room. (Mrs. Jorge does a tremendous job of looking slightly disoriented herself here. Brava.) Mere calls out her name.
Meanwhile, we see a team of nurses responding to Cristina's emergency call. They enter Nurse Fallon's room to find Cristina performing CPR. Cristina starts calling out orders, but one of the nurses sees that Nurse Fallon is DNR. Cristina tries to get them to resuscitate her anyway, but it's no-go.
