Oh, Mickey, Your Brain's Not So Fine: Derek gets in on the idea of making a map of the human brain. He's been doing tests on an enthusiastic quadriplegic named Mickey. He wants to ditch the project when his patient develops a tumor. That doesn't work for Mickey. Did you see the look on Derek's face when his patient said “access denied” to his brain? Classic.

Sound Dating Advice: If there's anyone who knows how to dump a woman, it's Alex Karev. It's not always pretty. Actually, it's never pretty. Still, the man has unparalleled experience in this area. Guess that's why Arizona asks for his advice here:
