And here's where my sound went out for a few minutes. Here's what's on the screen: Burke greets a patient, who is the woman we'll learn later is unnaturally and incredibly happy. He tells her something with a look of concern, which I'm guessing is about her heart since he's there. The woman doesn't care -- she's all smiles! She holds out her hand to show Burke and Meredith a wedding ring. Burke and Mere watch her babble with mild bemusement. She points to a man who is presumably her new husband. He smiles, and says something to Burke and Mere. Happy Mirthington calls her new husband over, and proceeds to giggle and kiss and love all over him. Mere and Burke say some stuff to the new husband, now looking a little worried. Happy just keeps smiling.
Out in the hall, Mere and Burke confer. Oh, hey, sound! Mere thinks that Happy is high as a kite. Burke is skeptical, but tells Mere to order a tox screen just in case. He really doubts she's on anything, and says you develop a sixth sense about these things. Mere counters, "Everybody's a liar." The dog, inexplicably roaming the hospital halls, barks in their general direction. Burke: "Dr. Grey, is that a dog?" Mere: "No."
Outside Rick's room, McDreamy tells Cristina she was a little harsh in there. Cristina says he was lying, and besides, his harsh is another man's refreshing! McDreamy says they need to be compassionate; the man lost his fingers and his one remaining habit all in one day. Cristina is not understanding this thing he speaks of, this "compassionate." McDreamy: "It's an emotion. Have you ever heard of it?" Cristina suddenly wheels on him. "Have YOU?" Ooh, this should be good. McDreamy stares at her in surprise. Cristina says Mere's barely back on her feet, and he's got her calling him McDreamy again. "You know, I was just telling the patient the truth. You might want to try it sometime." Face hard!
Webber passes by an open utility closet, and finds George in there frantically searching for Sophie's new remote. Webber asks George whatever happened to the "upper hand." George asks Webber if he's ever actually met Sophie. Webber: "Why do you think she's been here this long? In a private room." Oh, Webber, you pushover! George can't believe Sophie handled Webber, too. Webber's all, "Well, she sang for the troops, you know!" George pleads with Webber to let Sophie stay, just until her room at her daughter's house is ready. Webber nixes this idea, then says all wink-winkily, "Not on surgical service, anyway." George gets it, and heads over to Sophie's room.
