Mere's voice-over shows up again to tell us that she's heard about people growing up, she's just never actually known anyone who's done it. We get a glimpse of Izzie checking on SOG. SOG asks if, after the surgery, she'll still be able to have "episodes" when she actually wants to, and Izzie assures her that she will. Izzie looks out the window and sees Alex and they make dirty eyes at each other. A bit later, George is sitting on a bench outside the hospital waiting for Izzie. She shows up, and all George says is, "She doesn't hear me." Izzie's like, WHAT NOW? George says that Mere doesn't hear him when he talks, and Izzie says that she will if he makes her. George looks at her and rightly surmises that Izzie fed the beast. "Twice," she says, chagrined. Heh. Alex hangs in the distance, and George kicks Izzie off the bench so she can go make some more dirty beast meals with the Dirty Beastmaster.
Webber goes to visit Ellis and tells her that Meredith came to see him today and he thinks she knows about their affair. Ellis is like, ha ha ha! She's only FIVE. Webber's like, Alzheimer's sucks. Meredith heads to Joe's Bar, where her drink of choice seems to be a club soda with a lime. Or a mojito. Or a vodka tonic. McDrunky's not picky. Mark shows up and takes the seat next to her. He orders a double scotch and tells Mere she looks sad. She tells him about seeing her father for the first time in twenty years and says it could've gone better. Then she asks him what he's doing here and he says he's waiting for Addison to show up. "You're still in love with her?" asks Mere incredulously. "You're still in love with him," says Mark wryly. Heh. Mere tells him that Addie won't show because Derek's not the kind of guy you leave if you can help it. "What if you're wrong?" he asks. "What if just this once, life comes down on the side of the dirty mistresses?"
Yeah. Good luck with that, Mark. Addison's not coming to see you because she's too busy sitting at the tiny table in the tiny kitchen of her husband's tiny trailer, wallowing in the realization that her entire marriage has hit the skids. Meredith heads home to stand in front of her window and stare out at the sad, sad rain. There's a knock at her door. It's George. He walks over to her and says, "I know I'm not a world-renowned surgeon. And I know I'm not a lot of things you've gone for in the past. I know. But…I would never leave you. I would never hurt you. And I will never stop loving you." Aw. Well, at least he's said his piece. And Meredith appears to be listening. Looks like they're going to hug -- OH GOOD HOLY LORD WHAT IS SHE DOING? Is she taking off his shirt? SHE IS TAKING OFF HIS SHIRT. What? Who? How?
