A drunken dude staggers into the ER with a knife sticking out of his skull after a tailgating brawl. It happens. Meredith wants Derek to check the guy out. He’s game as long as it doesn’t interfere with the date they have scheduled for 6:30. However, there doesn’t seem to be any set time for Bailey’s rendezvous with Eli in an on-call room. Doctors and nurses hooking up in the hospital? It’s unheard of!
Regarding the drunk with the knife wound, it’s as if the blade did absolutely no damage at all. As the doctors assemble to figure out the best course of action, the patient’s equally-inebriated buddy yanks the knife out of his pal’s cranium. Looks like Derek will make his 6:30 date with Meredith after all. But he realizes the on-call room is occupied when he walks in on Bailey and Eli. So Derek drags Meredith into the elevator to give her a shot of hormones to help with their baby-making endeavors. It’s not exactly your traditional date.
