He draws the curtain and sees his wife in the stirrups. She lifts the sheet and he kind of cocks his head at her cooter. "You do indeed have poison oak," he says with a self-satisfied grin on his face. She asks if they're even yet and if she's paid her debt to society yet and, instead of laughing in her face and saying, "Getting blisters on your honey pot doesn't even BEGIN to clear your slate with me, sister!" he just laughs and she throws a pillow at him and apparently their marriage is saved thanks to a little poisonous plant with three leaves.
George and Cristina are walking down a hallway as George says that he can't believe that Meredith didn't tell Cristina all about the Night of Bad Sex. Cristina's like, yeah? And? This is a bad thing? George somehow turns even Mere's non-discussion of their encounter into yet ANOTHER reason to dive into the sobcakes at his pity party. Cristina speaks from the depths of my soul when she stops him and says, "George? The pity thing? Not good. If you want crappy things to stop happening to you, you need to stop accepting crap and demand something more." HALLELUJAH.
They run into Ann outside Mark's door. She tells them to tell Burke that Mark's going to have the surgery, but she's leaving because she's not strong enough to handle all this. George says that her fiancé is going into surgery and she's going to want to be there when he wakes up. Ann says that Mark isn't her fiancé anymore. George and Cristina are both disgusted and surprised. Before they can kick her in the teeth, however, Olivia runs out of the room and tells them that Mark is crashing. Ann runs off.
Burke operates on Mark as George watches from above. Olivia enters and watches for a minute. George tells her that Mark's fiancé left him. "Sounds like he dodged a bullet," she says. George doesn't think Mark will see it that way. Olivia looks at him. "If she can't love him back the way he loves her then she doesn't deserve him." George understands that Olivia's heard about him and Meredith. Olivia says she's sorry, and George says that he's sorry if he made her feel anything like what he's feeling right now. Olivia says that that's nice to hear.
