Addison listens to the heartbeat of Baby Grey (a remarkably lifelike little puppet). Alex enters and they greet each other, not nearly as awkwardly as before. Apparently he's been avoiding her the last couple of days. And then we get a first for this show. An attending apologizes to an intern for the inappropriate sexual contact between the two of them. It's almost like someone with a sane view of romantic relationships wrote this episode. (They don't hire people like that for the Grey's Anatomy writing staff, do they?) Alex doesn't respond to the apology at all. Instead, he asks how the baby is doing and is pleased to hear that she had her first bowel movement.
In Papa O'Malley's room, George shaves his father's face. George decides to tell his father some things he's been holding on to. Such as the fact that as a boy he did hit a neighbor kid in the face with a stick and then lied about it. George's dad was so certain that George never lied that he took George's side and started a major feud between the families. (A feud that apparently culminated in the meatheads blowing up the neighbor's lawn mower). George apologizes to his unconscious father and then leans his forehead against his father's temple and whispers, "If you have any more fight in you... if you could fight this thing just a little bit harder, that would be good. That'd be good right now." George kisses his father on the forehead. Commercials.
This act opens on a shot of Meredith's empty bed. Meredith enters the kitchen and Izzie asks where Derek is. It turns out that he slept at his place. Izzie laughs and Meredith asks if she really snores. Izzie: "Well, I grew up next a freeway so it really doesn't bother me. But yeah, you do." Meredith asks Izzie if she got any sleep the previous night. She didn't; she stayed up baking and "cleaning the bathroom floor in case George wants to lay down on it." Izzie talks about how useless it is to have all that money if she can't use it to save George from losing his father. As an alternative, she made cobbler. And we get a wider shot in which we see half a dozen pans of cobbler sitting on the counter. You know, this kitchen has a lot more pans in it than I would expect from such an undomestic family. Also, it looks like peach cobbler, which is the very worst cobbler of all.
In the hospital, Callie walks up to a desk at which Mark is standing. They give each other a glance. After he looks away, she looks at him more closely. He looks back and asks, "She told you?" Callie hesitates at first before acknowledging it. He gets up in her face and asks her if she thinks he'd be a terrible father. She denies having any basis on which to make such a judgment but then decides to take a stab at it. She asks him if he likes kids. He tells her it depends on how they're cooked. Er, I mean "on how loud they are." She looks thoughtful and asks him if he likes his family. He tells her that Derek's family was really his only family. He also doesn't remember things like birthdays or anniversaries. He asks her if all men aren't as selfish and thoughtless as he is, and she tells him, "To some men, family's everything." He asks her if she knows any of these mythical men. Callie, with a smile on her face: "I do. I know one." I think she just started ovulating. Hell, when I see the look of utter contentment on her face I think I just started ovulating. Mark thinks for a second and tells her that he would have made a terrible father.
