Cristina, followed by Izzie, slide into Bailey's OR. Bailey wonders why they're interrupting her resection of a bowel. There is smoke coming out of the patient's abdominal cavity. Please, God (by whom I mean Shonda): enough with the medical realism on this show. I'm here to see pretty people make out or occasionally get blown up -- I'm not here to see beating hearts or gushing blood, and I'm certainly not here to see smoke coming out of some guy's stomach. Cristina explains about the potential organ donor. Bailey wonders why they're wasting time on this. I would assume it's because, you know, there is a serious shortage of organ donors, and this guy's organs could save a bunch of lives. Izzie, still clinging to hope that the guy might wake up, explains that she thinks his death should mean something. Bailey absorbs this, and then realizes that Cristina's in it for the surgery. Bailey explains that they'll need to find the guy's family and get their consent before he dies. They get excited and run off to track down the guy's family. They're like a couple of Nancy Drews. It's a good thing they already have a faithful gal-pal named George who can assist in their adventures.
Alex finds George sitting at a desk with his face buried in a chart. Alex wonders what's going on, and George explains that he has male patient who likes him. Alex doesn't bat an eyelid, encouraging George to "get his." He continues: "I'm down with the rainbow." George does a slow burn, and Alex eventually looks at him and asks, "Um, are you not gay?" George says that he is not, and Alex acts surprised to learn this. He apologizes as he walks away, but it's not clear whether he's apologizing for being wrong about George's sexual orientation or because he thinks George makes a better gay man than a heterosexual. As Alex leaves, Cristina and Izzie approach. George pretends to have something for Cristina to draw her to him, and then asks, "Um, do you think... Does Meredith think I'm gay?" Cristina asks if he is and she too acts a bit surprised when he denies it. George just ruffles his papers and turns away from her. A nurse emerges from...somewhere, and Izzie explains to her that the only clue they have to their patient's identity is a hotel key card, and asks the nurse to give it to the police when they arrive so they can track the guy down. The nurse realizes that the guy is a potential organ donor. George overhears this and perks up at the thought. As Izzie and Cristina walk away, George asks Cristina for the donor's blood type.
