McDreamy walks in to check on Chief Webber, and finds Addison sitting on his bed and giggling about some story he's telling. McDreamy clears his throat, and Addison hauls ass. McDreamy asks the Chief what she's doing here. Webber: "You and I both know she's the best in the field. Bringing Addie out was a business decision, nothing personal." McDreamy's all, "Oh, well, that's a relief. Not personal. It's personal to me." Webber tells him he doesn't need to be including his private life in hospital business, then he adds insult to injury by saying Burke will be acting as chief of surgery while he's recuperating. McDreamy gets all offended, but Webber makes it worse by asking how long he's been sleeping with an intern. Then he's all, "Close the door on your way out." Damn.
Shots of the city. Rock music. Meredith tosses around in her bed. Okay!
Burke finds Cristina lovingly examining some surgical equipment in the OR. She jumps, and says she'll have everything back where it's supposed to be when she's done. Burke takes this opportunity to ask her to go to dinner. Cristina says she needs some time to think, and he interrupted her alone time. Burke says he gets it, and leaves sadly.
George and Izzie are in the locker room getting dressed, and George explains how Alex just pushed him too far this time. Izzie offers to take care of Alex for him, if he pisses him off again, and George's manhood is threatened. He's all, "No way, man, I'm handling it." Uh huh. Bailey walks in and hands out assignments. She tells Meredith that she must be very popular, because there was a special request just for her.
Burke is walking with Webber's secretary, while she rattles off the huge list of things Webber gets done -- before lunch. Burke says confidently that he can do it all, no problem. Webber's secretary walks off laughing to herself, "Virgins." Indeed. McDreamy walks over and fake-congratulates Burke. Burke: "Don't sweat it, Shepherd, I'll only be your boss for a few days." McDreamy reminds Burke that he was the one who operated on Webber, and Burke says, "Yeah, then he chose me to replace him while recruiting your wife." McDreamy: "Clearly, he has brain damage." Heh. Burke asks McDreamy to clear up the status of his relationship with Addison, and he says they're separated. And speak of the devil, Addison shows up at just that second. She apologizes to Burke for interrupting. Burke: "You're never interrupting." McDreamy: "She's always interrupting." Addison ignores this, and asks Burke if he'd secured the intern she'd requested. It's Mere's turn to show up, and she responds, "He did." Everyone does a double-take except Addison, who's grinning like the cat who ate the canary. Mere tries to look badass, but fails sort of miserably. Commercials.
