George’s patient is a toddler with undiagnosed tremors. George reluctantly gets McDreamy to look at her. He’s so sweet with the little girl—another reason to love McDreamy if you haven’t fallen for him already. Half her brain is deteriorating and will have to be removed. Don’t worry, because she’s so young the other half of the brain will regenerate.
McDreamy notices that George is being snide with him and tries to smooth it over by inviting him to scrub in on the brain surgery. Later George confesses to Cristina that it’s hard to hate McDreamy even though he’s sleeping with Meredith. Cristina knew all along. Izzie and George are annoyed they’re the last to know about Meredith and McDreamy. They live with her, after all.
When Bailey picks Meredith to scrub in on the brain surgery, Izzie flips out and snips “You can help McDreamy in ways none of us can.” Ouch! This is going to get good.
As they are prepping for surgery, George notices that Dr. Taylor, the anesthesiologist, reeks of Bourbon and confronts him about it. Dr. Taylor is furious and demands that McDreamy throw him out of the O.R. While McDreamy is operating on the girl, he notices that she is starting to wake up. She needs more anesthesia. McDreamy tries to get Dr. Taylor’s attention but he’s asleep!
