In the hospital of the living, Ellis is thrashing and screaming in her bed. Olivia is hollering at her to hold still, and Mark is there watching the drama, trying to help. Olivia yells that Burke would prescribe Thorazine (I think -- there's a lot of hollering going on behind her), but Burke is busy so Mark okays the prescription. Ellis continues yelling, demanding to see Richard.
Addison is in with Crush, who is also panicking and thrashing as Addison tries to calm her, explaining that they're just trying to help the baby. Crush can now manage a few words and tells them to talk to her husband, looking at Alex. There are uncomfortable glances exchanged, and he explains that he isn't her husband, but is the doctor who rescued her from the accident. Jane doesn't remember a thing from before waking up in the hospital. Addy seems almost perturbed, which is a little bit odd, and asks if she knows her name. She doesn't, but that starts her panic anew. Addy is now more sympathetic and strokes her hair trying to calm her down. She and Alex leave the room, wondering what might have caused her retrograde amnesia, and she orders a chest x-ray. She gently asks if he wants to be with his friends, but he'd rather be working. He admits, "Meredith always makes me think... screwed up people have a chance." Hear that? It's my heart breaking a tiny bit over Alex and Meredith's friendship and how he's clearly worried and coping in his own way.
The senior docs continue to work on Meredith, but nothing helps -- her heart is still decidedly not beating. Just then, Izzie inexplicably walks in. They order her out to wait with George and Cristina, but she's paralyzed by the sight and can only mumble that Cristina's gone. Burke seems appalled that she's gone during her shift. On the one hand, since there do only seem to be a small handful of doctors working at Seattle Grace, and half of them are currently in with Meredith, I understand his shock. On the other, she was just sitting in the hall. Does it really matter? He asks where she went; cut to Cristina, wandering the aisles of the 99-cent store, still in her scrubs, looking dazed yet interested as she grabs items at random off of the shelves and tosses them into her shopping cart.
