Bailey and George come in, they run through her symptoms, but without a love bun in the oven, it looks instead like she has appendicitis. Bailey orders George to scrub in on her surgery, and though they all point out the not-so-smooth last one he performed, she sticks with it. Come on, ladies, it was his first day -- he's held a heart since then! There's a lot of staring, natch, and with Bailey's being no-nonsense, it looks like George stays on the case. When she asks "Is that okay with you, Dr. Grey?" Meredith just gazes with a smile on her face and replies, "You're pretty," and gives her a little bunny nose wrinkle. It's hilarious acting on Ellen Pompeo's part. Bailey leaves, and Meredith orders George to get her ice chips.
Callie comes down the stairs and mentions Meredith's appendectomy, and George falls over himself basically apologizing for being on her surgery. Thankfully, Callie shuts him up by saying she just thought they could have a late dinner afterward. At her hotel. In her room. George looks delighted at this, but of course instead of just taking his cue and being sexy with regards to possible bedroom shenanigans later, tries to sound sexy as he asks how she's affording a stay at the Archfeld. She whispers, "I still have some secrets, O'Malley. And if you come see me tonight? I just might show you one or two." I love George, but I don't know what she sees in him. However, if he screws this up (again), he's beyond all hope. I can't say I'd give him as many chances to be a big boy as she has.
Bailey and Mark are standing together -- from the camera angle, she appears to be about as tall as his elbow. She asks how the Salesmans are doing, and he has the gall to ask, "And you are?" She seems so surprised that I'll take that as the reason she tells him, "Dr. Bailey," in a nice voice rather than punching him in the nads to jog his memory. She quickly rights herself and explains she was the resident on his case, and he tells her he doesn't need one. She comes back in full form telling him she was not asking him if he needed help, she was asking about her patient. He announces, "He's not your patient anymore." Oh, McSteamy, you're super hot, but you're going to learn quickly who runs this place, and it's not a guy with molded facial hair who likes his cappuccinos bone dry.
Cristina runs into Burke in the hall and gives him congrats and a gentle, "I told you." He brushes her off, which seems to finally get her attention. He says that he shouldn't have been cleared, but she brushes the statement off, assuring him he's fine, so he just turns and leaves. She catches up to him and after a few "What?"s back and forth, he drops his head and says, "He just... shouldn't have cleared me." He walks away.
