Elevator of Potential McDreamy/Mere Trysts. Mere's waiting for the doors to close when McDreamy walks up and gets on the elevator with her. She tells him not to be nice to her. I think he's doing a damn fine job of not being nice to you already, Mere, in case you hadn't noticed. Mere says that she did a terrible thing and she's pretty sure she's going to lose all her friends. "You won't lose me," says McDreamy. "You're not my friend," she says. So true. McDreamy thinks he is. Mere thinks he isn't. McDreamy thinks he could be a good friend. Mere thinks they can't be friends. He thinks they can. OH MY GOD JUST DO IT ALREADY. Mere asks how they could possibly be friends and Derek suggests that they could hang out. He walks Doc every other morning up on Tiger Mountain Trail. They could meet there and have coffee and watch Doc play and discuss the complex nature of their existence. "Right," says Meredith, not buying a word of it. "I could be your friend," says Derek. "No," she says firmly as she exits. "We can't be friends."
Room of Magical Heart Patients and the Doctors Who Love Them. Izzie's attending to Denny and she tells him that he's holding stable. He likes the way she says "fibrillation." She sexily says "fibrillation" to him. "Tease!" he rasps. Hee. He asks her if she believes in karma and she says she does. "I think you might be mine," he says. Aw. They continue flirting as Alex watches jealously from the hall. God. Get over it already, Alex. Izzie's fucking you, not pledging her troth.
Derek and the Chief meet up outside the room where Bailey has apparently taken up residence in Addison's punanny. The Chief tries to keep Derek out of the room, but he says that Bailey paged him. She walks up and says she did, indeed, page Derek and she invites him into the room and slams the door in the Chief's face. Heh. Inside the room, Bailey tells Derek to stand there next to the drawn curtain and listen while Addison talks. Don't move, don't speak, just listen. "Do you understand?" "I'm not mentally challenged," he twits. "I'm not so sure about that," she says. Heh. Bailey leaves, and Derek starts to go around the curtain to talk to Addison but she makes him promise to stay where he is. She says she's going to show him something and, when she does, he does not get to laugh or gloat. "Why would I gloat?" he asks. "I have poison oak," she says.
