The Big Set-Up

Six Days, Part I - Alex realizes that he really belongs with Addison instead of Mark, and that might mean more than just operating on babies; George's dad goes into really big and scary surgery; Izzie deposits The Check; and Meredith snores. We're basically just laying the groundwork for anything that might happen in Part II.

Get Away From Me!

Don't Stand So Close To Me - Pretty much everybody spends the entire episode pushing everyone away from them. Burke pushes Cristina and Derek away. Cristina pushes Meredith away. Meredith pushes her step-mother away. George, Izzie and Alex all push Cristina away. Mark pushes Izzie away, but I think that's just so he can get a nice look as she walks away.

Everything's going to be fine. Seriously.

Staring At The Sun - George's dad will be fine, right? Because Burke is fine, and Meredith and Derek are shiny and happy, and Bailey is confident as a mother and surgeon, and Cristina hasn't turned unusually modest. Except for none of that being true, everything is totally going to be fine. Seriously fine.

And in the end, Meredith and McDreamy decide to make a fresh start of it.

Oy, Gevalt

Oh, The Guilt - Everybody feels guilt, because they've done things like killing a patient, lying to their partner, being angry with their baby, and sleeping with the wrong person (that one applies to several different characters). But nobody feels gilt, because nobody is covered in a layer of thin gold foil.

Izzie treats a patient who claims to be a psychic, and Izzie hates psychics because they remind her of trailer parks.

This is illustrated by how Meredith keeps sleeping with Derek, even though it turns some of her Medicine Crüe mates against her, and how an already thin girl has illegal Mexican gastric bypass surgery just to please her mother. I know. Illuminating, right?

George pretends he doesn't have a thing for Meredith and then pretends not to ask her out. He is unsuccessful in both attempts. Izzie's running ragged, Burke wants to define his relationship with Cristina, and Bailey hates everyone. I think that pretty much sums it up.
