Izzie and George go over their various patients and then George tells Meredith that something is wrong with Izzie, though he doesn't know what. Mere isn't in the mood to hear it -- she tells him that they already have enough intern drama and they don't need resident drama. "If it's a problem, she'll tell us. Until then, just ignore it!" Her ostrich impression really is great today, what with all of her sticking her head in the sand. They then see Steve run by, which Bailey notices as well. Mere continues to ignore it but Bailey demands to know what's going on. When Mere gives her lame "It's personal," excuse, Bailey chuckles and asks if Mere thinks Bailey wanted to be involved with all of their intern drama. George actually has the gall to say that they weren't this bad, so Bailey ticks off, "Getting married in Vegas, shacking up with attendings, cutting LVAD wires. You don't have to like it but you have to manage it." Once again she proves herself to be the smartest woman in the hospital but Meredith just promises they have it under control. She is quickly proven 100% wrong; however, when Megan runs down the stairs sobbing, and from above Steve yells after her that he loves her and then mows down a patient when he tries to run after her. To be fair, he does stop and check on the guy rather than follow his weeping beloved. Bailey just turns and gives the two residents a very pointed look.
They pull the three interns aside, and Mere does her best Bailey impression when she orders them to all cut it out. George is playing Good Cop to Mere's Bad Cop, and when Steve tries to talk George quietly assures him that he shouldn't talk while Mere is talking. Mere yells at them for scaring the patients and making the hospital and the residents look ridiculous and George jumps in to shut up Megan when she tries to protest. Mere orders them to stay away from each other, and if she sees a glance or a single tear it's over for them. They all walk away and Mere has to scream after them not to go together before turning to George and admitting how good that felt. I love that there is zero recognition that she was at least this bad if not worse during her intern year.
