Rose may already be there. She shouts, “I love him” when Derek steps away. That’s fine for her but a bummer for Meredith, who is in earshot when Rose makes her declaration of McDreaminess. Fortunately, Mer’s been making appointments with the hospital’s staff therapist (guest star Amy Madigan). Someday she may actually get up the nerve to say something to her shrink.
A man is mauled by a bear while camping. Upon arrival to the hospital, he “spills his guts” to Cristina. Seriously, she literally catches his intestines as they fall from his belly! And we thought the cockroaches in George’s apartment were gross.
Intestine guy’s brother is also hurt, having been bitten as he tried to pet a cub. His reckless act is what sparked the attack on his brother by the cub’s mama bear. Also injured is the man’s brand new wife, who he only met recently. Meredith is suspicious of her patient’s sudden marriage and irrational impulse to touch a bear. She believes he may be a “medical mystery” which is worth 80 points in the contest.
