Later, after the bleach-soaking, George and Alex are sending Bill through his CT scan as Alex expresses surprise that George actually even HAS sex. He wants to know who gave George cooties on the playground, but George isn't spilling. He asks if Alex has ever had something like this before and Alex says he never talks about his penis with other men. The CT technician looks over at George with his eyebrow raised and George is all, uh, I don't... either... normally. Kill me. Just then, George notices something on the scan and says that they'd better get Burke. They run out.
Izzie and Cristina enter the room of the man with the distended abdomen. His name is Franklin. They tell him that he has ascites, better known as fluid in the peritoneal cavity. The swelling is pressing against his lungs, which is why he's having trouble breathing. Cristina says it looks like a symptom of liver disease. "And it allll comes together," says the bitchy daughter from the corner of the room. Cristina asks if there's something they should know and the daughter shoots her father a look. "I drink a bit," he says. "That's the understatement of the year," she snaps. Her father tries to reprimand her, but she just says she's here for her mother, to make sure he doesn't pull any of his usual crap. Cristina and Izzie share a glance of, "What the hell is going on with this family, anyway?"
Alex informs Burke that there's a growth protruding into Bill's bladder. Burke doesn't think it's a tumor, though. "Kinda looks like an ovary," quips Alex. "That the flip answer you gonna give your patient, Dr. Karev?" snaps Burke. "This is one of my oldest friends, you might just want to take this seriously." Alex apologizes as George enters with the lab results. "You won't believe this," says George as he hands the results to Burke. He pages through them and looks up in surprise. "Bill has an ovary?" Bill smiles at Burke from his seat behind the soundproof glass and Burke fakes a smile back in his direction.
Izzie and Cristina tell Bailey about Mr. Franklin and how his daughter told them he's a heavy drinker. Bailey asks what the protocol is and they respond that they'll schedule a procedure to drain the fluid to relieve the pressure on his lungs. Bailey tells them to do the procedure themselves and they both practically drool all over the floor.
