Mere is talking to Jorge's wife. She's trying to convince her that keeping Jorge alive for a few extra years won't be worth it if the surgery turns him into a completely different person or makes him lose his memories of their time together. Mrs. Jorge isn't up for hearing this; she thinks that a few extra years will be worth it, and that it's none of Mere's business. Mere thinks that five good years is better than ten bad ones. McDreamy sees what's going on and walks over to ask Mere what she's doing. Mere says that she's trying to make Mrs. Jorge understand what she's going to lose, but Mrs. Jorge cuts her off: "I do understand! You think I'm being selfish, that I don't want to give him up. This is Jorge's decision. And if that means ten bad years for me, fine, I'll give him those years, because I will give him whatever he wants. And if he doesn't remember me, if he doesn't remember what we are, he's still my Jorge, and I'll remember for us both." She's crying by the end of that speech, and so am I.
Burke enters Nurse Fallon's room to find Cristina performing CPR while the nurses watch. Burke tells her to let her go, but Cristina keeps pumping.

Izzie enters the scrub room where George is watching Creepy Masturbator's surgery. She asks for an update on where they are in the surgery, and then asks him if he feels like she's been emasculating him. George puffs out his chest and responds, "No. I'm too masculine to be emasculated." But he clearly knows that's not true. She laughs, and apologizes. He congratulates her on putting the "Doctor Model" nickname to rest. They bump shoulders. It's very sweet.
In the O.R., Bailey is telling Limp Harry that the nerves he's planning on cutting out are perfectly viable and should be saved. Limp Harry thinks it would take an extra hour, and some of the cancer might be left behind. Bailey thinks CM's prognosis would be just as good if he had chemo following the surgery, and she offers to finish up if Limp Harry is concerned about missing his tee-time. Izzie pulls on a mask and enters the O.R. Bailey and Limp Harry ask her what she's doing. She tells them that they've go to save the nerves: "You told me the most important thing is giving the patient what they want. What [CM] wants is his erection." Limp Harry tells Bailey to get Izzie out of the room, but Bailey tells her that Izzie is a young puppy who is too ornery for her to control. Limp Harry promises to report both of them to the Chief. Bailey tells him that he should do that, but in the meantime she would like him to pretend that his prostate is on the table and do his best to save the nerves.
