Derek enters the Chief's Super Secret Surgery Room. The Chief asks Derek and Bailey if they're still under the radar and they confirm that they are. He tries to direct his own surgery, but finally, Derek just good-naturedly makes a comment about how doctors make the worst patients and tells the Chief to suck on some happy gas. He leans down and whispers in the Chief's ear, "I got you covered." Aw. The Chief goes under and we fade to commercials.
"We stole a body," says Izzie as she and Cristina stand over Franklin's corpse. "We're body snatchers. What if somebody from the morgue comes looking for Franklin?" Oh, she is NOT getting cold feet now, is she? It was HER damn idea! Cristina's all, uh, A) it's the middle of the night and B) he's dead; people stop looking for you when you're dead. They get into position for the autopsy, but neither one of them knows how to start. Cristina pulls out a big-ass textbook. "You brought a TEXTBOOK?" Izzie gasps. "Uh, if we're gonna DO this, we're gonna DO IT RIGHT," snaps Cristina. She places the book at his head and starts to cut. Izzie's still fretting. "It's not like we can kill him TWICE," grits Cristina. She continues to cut and Izzie suddenly wants to handle the blade. "You'll GET your TURN," Cristina hisses at her. Izzie = annoying.
The Chief's surgery seemed to go on without incident, because when we catch up to Derek in the OR, he's already closed up the man's scalp with staples and he's saying that they're all done here. He commends everyone on jobs well done and leaves. Meredith and Bailey remain behind to wrap up. Mere wonders if the Chief's optic nerve will be damaged, and Bailey says that, if it is, when he wakes up, he'll be blind forever. She then tells Meredith to page Cristina and Izzie; she wants them to cover Mere's patients so she can stay and monitor the chief. Mere tries to cover for the girls, saying that they're swamped, but Bailey's like, with what? They don't really DO anything around here, so how can they be swamped? Mere says they had to check on some labs and Bailey removes her mask. "Oh, you are LYING. I know you're lying. You know how I know? 'Cause you a bad liar! I hate a bad liar jus--" Suddenly, she stops and looks down at the Chief's body. She knows exactly where Cristina and Izzie are. Nice job, Meredith. You can keep your sick mother a secret from even your closest friends, but an illegal autopsy's too much for you? You need to brush up on your lying skills, girl.
