Lord. George is sitting outside the damn hospital with his suitcase. So he packed his shit and just left the House of Shame without calling anyone or possibly, I don't know, paging through the damn yellow pages for the name of a cheap motel? What a sad, sorry motherfucker. Really. Doctor Sara comes wandering up and asks if he's going on a trip. He says he sort of is. She pulls out a pen and writes her name on his hand and tells him to give her a call when he gets back in town. Hee. Burke walks out just then and sees George perched on the wall. They look at each other.
The next thing we see is Burke and Cristina in bed together and Cristina looks like she's taking a pumice stone to her flaky calves, but she's probably just putting lotion on them. "He's your friend," says Burke. "He needed our help." "Are his problems surgical?" snaps Cristina. "No," says Burke. "Then, technically, he doesn't need our help." Heh. Burke drops his book on the nightstand and rolls back over to her. "You're a good person," he says to her. "I am not," she snaps as she turns off the light. Hee. "Good night," says Burke, curling up next to her. "Ah haaaa," groans Cristina good-naturedly. "Good night." "Good night!" calls George from the sofa in the living room. Heh. George's voice-over says some more stuff about karma and how it evens the score.
Speaking of scoring, we next see Doc, careening around a park corner, with McDreamy on his tail. Doc runs right over to Mere, who's standing there, waiting for McDreamy. He walks over to her as George's voice-over says, "And even when we do something that might tempt karma to bite us in the ass, well, it goes without saying we do it anyway." "So," says Mere. "Just friends." "Just friends," says McDreamy. They look at each other. Ten bucks says they do it by Episode 22. Any takers?
Next on Grey's Anatomy: George and Burke bond, much to Cristina's chagrin. Cristina baby-sits Baby Bailey. Hilarity ensues. And Alex chastises Izzie for wanting to do naughty things to Denny the Magical Heart Patient.
