She leaves, defeated, and Bailey is outside and sees the whole thing. Without looking at Addison, she quietly asks, "Since when do you 'get out?'" Addison claims not being herself that day. Bailey snarks, "I never would have imagined Mark Sloan to be your type." Addison tries to retaliate that he isn't her type. Bailey smartly doesn't say anything, which leads Addison to finally spill it in a manic run-on sentence, wondering why he's there and arguing that she can't handle him being there. Bailey smirks and shakes her head as Addison continues talking to herself about being a professional. "But when he's here, I'm just... " "A woman who gets the hots for man-candy and cheats on her husband." My love for her just cannot even be put into words. Addison tells her, "That is rude. And unkind. And completely true. Oh my god, what am I gonna do?" Bailey instructs, "For starters, you can keep your knees closed in his presence." Addison gives a shocked whisper, "Miranda!" And without missing a beat she replies, "You asked. And also, you can remember that no man -- not Derek, not Mark -- defines who you are." That's it. I'm becoming a fictional surgeon so that Bailey can become my mentor.
Derek, meanwhile, is stroking dopey Meredith's cheek, even loving her flushed, ill complexion. He examines her and asks if she's happy that her boyfriend works in a hospital, but she corrects him that he's "just one of many men [she] happens to be dating." He smirks that none of the others are there and on cue, Finn and his wig are at the door. Meredith looks a little bit stunned and tells the ceiling, "Can I say how much it helps that I am on drugs right now?" I'll agree -- because Meredith on drugs is the most amusing and watchable she's been in months, and I'm loving her in this state.
They banter over Meredith's bed while she watches back and forth as if she's watching a tennis match. The kind of match where the players whip out their rackets and compare size, if you know what I mean, and I think you do. George comes in to prep her and stops short when she sees the guys, and Meredith gets even more dreamy. "Now all my boys are here! You're all so handsome. And such good kissers." George nearly vomits on himself, Derek looks incredibly amused, and Finn looks confused. He asks, "You two did it?" Derek: "You didn't know?" Given what we learn later about how much she tells Finn, it is actually surprising. She helps out the situation by explaining, "It wasn't a date so much as a disastrously uncomfortable," (George begins to hyperventilate) "sexual experience." George tries to flee but he's stopped by Bailey, who orders everyone out and George back in to do his job. Meredith announces happily that all of her boyfriends are there, and the two actual dates both let her know they'll be there when she comes out of surgery, and Bailey shuts the door. With all of that man-candy in the room, I'm not sure I'd even need painkillers.
