George is watching as someone cleans up the bloody mess from the day when Hunt tells him good work. George questions that, since everyone is now dead, but Hunt reminds him that in fact one of them lived. George must be thinking about how similar this feels to his 007 start as an intern way back when. He answers that the one patient he didn't touch is fine, but Hunt jumps in to try and snap him out of funk by explaining that she lived because Hunt was able to get to her, and that's because George was on his team. He doesn't seem terribly comforted, and as he leaves Hunt calls after him that trauma is a team sport, where you don't have to be a hero, "You just have to go where you're needed."
Alex is sitting outside, and Mere walks up and joins him. She rubs his back as he asks if she heard about Izzie's new tumor. As he sniffles, he admits that he doesn't think they're going to be able to get this one, and he starts to cry as he concedes, "I think she's gonna die on me. I think she's really gonna die." Justin Chambers has been absolutely amazing the last few weeks -- it's kind of shown how underutilized he's been for much of the series, but I'm so glad we've gotten to see him be so awesome now. He then asks Mere what she's even doing there, since she's got a wedding to get ready for, but that's just what she came to talk to him about.
Lexie heads into Becca's room and introduces herself. As she works on Becca's central line she gets teary and when the patient tells the doctor not to cry she points out, "You're breathing." So at least there is one good result to come from the accident that day.
Bailey, rocking a coral patterned dress and dangly earrings, is holding a purple bridesmaid bouquet and looking anxiously out into the hallway while Izzie puts some makeup in a bag. Izzie tries to talk to her but Bailey is totally distracted, and Iz starts to freak a bit and asks if she can still go. Bailey assures her yes, and then breathes a sigh of relief that the person she was waiting for has arrived. Meredith, her hair in curlers bigger than the circumference of her arms, runs in with the wedding gown. Izzie freaks out, wondering why she's not at the church, and Meredith breathlessly tells Izzie, "I just came to say this isn't my dress." Izzie assures her it is and launches into a speech, kind of resigned, like she thought this might happen. She assures Meredith that Derek loves her and marriage is a good thing, and turns to Bailey for help. While Bailey agrees, she tells Izzie with a big smile, "She's saying it's not her wedding dress." Izzie is now totally confused when Alex runs in, looking dapper in a tux. He announces, "She's right. The dress isn't for Meredith." Meredith and Bailey could light up the entire hospital, they are beaming so much. Izzie starts to smile, and if you'll excuse me I just got a little bit of dust in my eyes here that I need to take care of. I am totally NOT CRYING, I swear.
