As they walk past Izzie's door, they hear her moaning exuberantly. They don't have their own Special Denny Sense, so it's just her voice coming from inside. It is more notable when Alex then comes out of his bedroom. Mere asks what he's doing there -- he paid off a nurse to page him when an appendectomy came in. But what she means comes in the form of an extra-loud moan from Izzie's room. Mere calls to Derek and wakes him up, so we know he's keeping Little Derek under control and Alex reaches the conclusion that Izzie is enjoying some quality time with herself. "It's hot." Alex knocks on the door to get Izzie up for the appendectomy, and when Sadie calls out to Mere that she's ready to go, Derek is none too pleased to realize she's there too. Mere assures him it's only for a couple of days but he announces, "No more strays." She repeats it and kisses him before leaving. Izzie finally opens the door to Alex; she's very sweaty and naked and hiding behind the door. She lies that she's not feeling well (though the noises we heard say otherwise) and says she's going to skip the op. Alex points out what he just heard and offers to stay and assist her efforts, but she just tells him she doesn't want to get him sick. I don't think delusions are contagious, but who really knows at this point?
Bailey walks in and is immediately accosted by the residents, all ready to help her with the appendectomy. Each yells out the reason they should get the surgery -- Cristina met the ambulance, Mere is helping Cristina, George is on call and, in an uncharacteristic but hilarious move, Alex just wishes Bailey a good morning and tells her how nice she looks. Cristina then jumps in to add that she got there first and that the Chief said she's the one to watch. Bailey gets it and tells them she knows what's up, that the solo surgery is coming up, they know it's probably an appendectomy, "So you little mini-surgeons dragged your butts out of bed to pick up some final tips from the master. Yeah, it's kind of cute," she admits. She can take two, and Mere and Cristina manage to poach it over George's rightful protest that he's on call by showing they are already familiar with the case.
