Burke and Cristina's relationship is affected when one of her secrets is outted. Alex and Izzie are having similar reactions to their closet scenes during the Code Black crisis. On top of this a cocky doctor shows up to piss Derek off in all kinds of ways. A patient is suffering from constant orgasms and her condition sparks interesting conversations among the staff. George is trying to figure out how to get Meredith to see him as more than just a housemate. Another patient, that Derek is treating, is dealing with a rare disorder and needs his parents support and understanding. Burke has a patient who inspires him to talk to Meredith and Cristina about doing what they say they will.

  • Quotes (24)

    • Meredith: She had an affair. Thatcher: Yes. Meredith: Why didn't you stay and fight for us? Thatcher: I did. I tried. Meredith: Why didn’t you try harder? You just left. Thatcher: Meredith. (Meredith wipes away a tear) Is there anything you need? Anything at all? Meredith: I don't need anything from you.

    • Meredith: Why do people cheat? Derek: That's a good question. Meredith: Why do you think she cheated on you? Were you different then? Were you a bad husband? Derek (pauses): I was... ah... I was just a little absent. Not that is an excuse for her. Meredith: Do you think things would've been different if you'd had kids? Derek: Do I think she wouldn’t have cheated? ... (he shakes his head) I don’t know.

    • George (about Meredith): I grew my hair out for her and -- Izzie: I know. George: I don't even think she noticed. Izzie: You could just tell her how you feel.

    • Alex: I think you're making it up. Izzie: He's not. I saw it. Four times. (Cristina laughs) Meredith: What? George: Woman with spontaneous orgasms. Cristina: Oh, yeah. Uh huh. Meredith: Really? George (to Alex): You’re just jealous because you didn’t see it yourself. Alex: Totally am. (he gives Izzie a dirty look, she shakes her head) Meredith: Spontaneous orgasms? Really? George (to Meredith, in low voice): You look really nice today. Cristina: Any chance they’re contagious? Meredith: I mean spontaneous orgasms that would solve so many problems. George (chuckles): It would. It would. (again, in low voice) I think you smell nice too. Cristina: You know it’s like you see someone throw up, makes you wanna throw up too. Kinda like that? Izzie: Kinda like... (she looks at Alex, who is grinning and laughing silently at her. She tries not to laugh) You know what? I’m not hungry. (to Alex) Do you hear me? I’m not hungry. Neither is the beast. Cristina: The beast? Is that like some sly reference to your penis? Alex: Get your mind out of the gutter, crack-whore. (George and Meredith laugh) George: No it’s not Alex’s penis. It’s, you know when you haven’t had sex for a long time and you forget how good it is, so you want it less? (Cristina and Meredith stare at him) Cristina: Yeah, that doesn't happen to me. Meredith: Me either. George: Me either.

    Trivia (5)

    • Meredith chooses the nickname "McSteamy" for Mark. In "Into You Like A Train", Nurse Tyler told Meredith that McSteamy (he mixed it up with McDreamy) went looking for her at Joe's.

    • Mark's nickname McSteamy is "Docteur glamour" in the French version, which literally means "Doctor glamorous". McDreamy is "Docteur mamours" which means "Doctor kiss and cuddle".

    • At Joe's, Mark orders a double scotch single malt. That is the exact same drink Derek always orders.

    • Goof: When Meredith and Burke are talking after the operations, you can clearly see the crew filming.

    • Goof: Pamela's Father explains during one of her "episodes" that she goes to "U-Dub" referring to the University of Washington, and that the last three semesters she was on the honor roll. At the University of Washington they run on a quarter system and don't have semesters; they also have don't have an honor roll, but instead a Dean's List.
