The Seattle Grace interns are at the bar across the street playing “Whose life sucks more?” Meredith’s boyfriend McDreamy is McMarried. Cristina is pregnant and the baby daddy doesn’t know. Joe the bartender collapses—he wins.
Joe needs a standstill surgery where they stop the heart, freeze him and then bring him back to life but they only have 45 minutes to do it. The patient is clinically dead during the surgery. How crazy is that! Everyone at Seattle Grace has stories about Joe, including Bailey.
