Seattle Grace. Bailey pulls back a curtain around a bed in the clinic. We hear the sound of hiccups, and then see that the patient is Susan, Meredith's stepmother. Bailey wonders if Susan is looking for Meredith, but she's really looking for medical care. I assumed the clinic would be for people who don't otherwise have access to medical care. I'm guessing that Susan has some kind of insurance, so her presence here is pretty contrived. She tells Bailey that she has acid reflux disease and that it's causing her to have uncontrollable hiccups. Bailey suggests a particular drug, one that's normally used as an anti-psychotic medication but that also appears to stop hiccups. Bailey gives Susan a shot, and Susan asks how Meredith is doing. With the big intern exam approaching, Meredith has been so busy that she hasn't been returning Susan's calls. Bailey quite pointedly does not answer Susan's questions, and Susan surprises herself when she realizes that her hiccups have stopped.
Francie is examining Addison while Addison continues her descent into the land of the crazy inappropriate chatters. She babbles on about being "post-McDreamy, post-McSteamy," and Francie wonders what the hell she's talking about. Addison: "Forget it. You know what, let's never 'Mc' anything. A baby, that is my answer." Francie explains to her, "A baby's not really an answer. It's more of a crying, puking non-answer." Addison doesn't seem interested in hearing that, and points out that Francie got married and had a kid, so it must be doable. Francie tries to change the subject by suggesting some particular procedures to evaluate Addison's fertility. Addison: "Holy crap, I'm going to have a baby."
In another room, Taye is examining a woman's injured knee. She explains that she was doing some super workout on the treadmill and paused it, causing her to fly off and injure her knee. He tells her that the real question is why she's pushing herself so hard: "This is your fourth sports injury in three months." She takes a breath and then freaks out just a little bit, explaining that her husband hasn't had sex with her in eighteen months so she's been running like crazy to channel all of her sexual energy so she won't commit adultery. Someone should explain this method to George. At the end of her rant, she asks Taye, "You'd do it with me, right?" Taye: "I think you need to spend some time with our therapist."
Speaking of whom, Amy is sitting in her car and beeping her horn. She's beeping for her colleague, Cooper, who turns out to actually be Paul Kellerman. He gets in the car, and she starts driving. And also wiping her eyes and sniffling. He asks if she's been crying, and she asks where his car is. So, she needed to "rescue" him by picking him up and giving him a ride? They do have taxis in L.A., right? She wins the fight by threatening to evict him from the car, and he starts to explain that he met a girl at a bar. She laughs, and he corrects that to "on the internet." And then he tells her, "And she borrowed my car." Amy laughs and asks if he filed a report with the police, but he tells her, "She might bring the car back. She was gorgeous, and hot." And those are both excellent indicators of moral fiber. Amy points out that this is not a new experience for Kellerman. Apparently, it's pretty routine for him to hook up with women online who turn out to steal from him. Amy asks him what this pattern suggests about him, and he tells her, "That I'm an optimist. That I believe in magic. That there is a soulmate out there waiting for me." This crap is too much for Amy, who starts to quietly sob. He tells her that Alan was not her soulmate and is not worth crying over. She denies crying over Alan, and puts her sunglasses on to hide her tears.
