Tweedles Dee and Dum follow Sloane into his patient's room. Sloane asks him how he's doing and the guy replies, "Oh, Frank's doing okay. He'd be doing a lot better if the twins were even." Frank, as it turns out, is the patient who likes to refer to himself in the third person. Lauren S is just relieved to find out that by "the twins," Frank means his pecs and not two other similarly matching male body parts. Sloane introduces them (the interns, not the pecs) with, "Frank, these are interns," while staring at them like they're odd specimens. "I'm supposed to be teaching them. Apparently, this is a teaching hospital." Alex gives the rundown and Sloane yawns -- I've been loving him, but the shtick is starting to wear a bit thin -- and Izzie jumps in to help answer, and then apologizes for already breaking the rules. Sloane's done teaching and takes the chart back. He tells Alex to monitor Frank's drainage tube and change his dressings, but when he makes a crack about Izzie just watching, Alex actually speaks to say that she's a great doctor. "Yeah, that's what I hear," Sloane replies, and leaves. That made an impact. I can tell he's really near cracking.
George approaches Cristina again to find out about the decanulating heart business. When she again tries to argue that she didn't do it herself, he cuts her off to say that she did. He then goes on to tell her that he noticed Burke's hand shaking when they were fishing, and Cristina turns on him, claws flying. She wants to know why he'd say that and says, "That's not funny." Not smiling, George never intended it to be. Cristina is seriously on the edge of a spectacular breakdown. When George goes on to talk about Burke letting her do the surgery earlier that day, she pushes him off to sit with his dad. George manages to not be deterred, but he does begin stuttering a bit about Burke, giving her a chance to escape down the hall. Stick with it, Georgie.
