Room of Boys with Head Trauma and the Annoying Fathers Who Love Them. Derek informs everyone that HTB has some blood leaking in his brain. It sounds worse than it is, though, and things like that often heal themselves. NND is all, but what if it doesn't? What about his IQ? Will he live to be forty? Can he be president? AAAAIIIIIIIEEEEE. Seriously. The guy's a damn howler monkey. This scene is neither funny nor instructive. Next, please.
Outside the hospital, Izzie runs out and sees Alex. She asks him if someone paged him and he says no and that no one paged her either and then he grabs her and pushes her up against the wall and shoves an ice cream cone at her mouth and she's all, "Squeeee!" They start making out, but an ambulance arrives, and the patient being wheeled out is none other than Denny, the Magical Heart Patient. Izzie sees this and breaks off from Alex to run after Denny. Alex is left with his sad little sexy ice cream cone melting all over his hand. In the ER, Izzie grills the paramedics about what they gave him in the ambulance. Burke arrives and assesses the situation. Denny's heart rhythm is all over the place. Izzie yammers off a series of drug solutions and Burke tells her to calm down. Alex watches all this with a note of jealous interest. He tries to get her to leave, but she won't.
Meanwhile, Bailey's pilfering the hospital stock, looking for steroids for Addison's muff. Webber walks up and says that he sees her. Bailey says he doesn't. Webber says that she's working. Bailey says she isn't. Then she just walks off in a hurry before Webber starts asking why she's carrying calamine lotion and a packet of needles. Back with Mark and Ann, Cristina's checking Mark's vitals and asking if they've decided about his surgery yet. He says they're still talking about it and they're thinking they might wait until after the wedding. Cristina gets that look that she gets. You know the one. The "oh so you're going to be STUPID then" look. She tells Mark that with his condition, he's going to be okay until he's not. She says that if he opts against the surgery, he may live until his wedding or he may not. He'll never know. "You'll just be okay until you die," she says. Mark's like, wow. Great bedside manner there, YANG. "Are you trying to comfort me?" "No," snaps Cristina. "I'm trying to convince you to let Dr. Burke operate." She finishes up by saying that Dr. Burke is the very best and that he's their very best chance at survival.
