Cristina really wanted to catch a fish. So, Derek threw one at her . . .
This week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy featured two marriage proposals, two (sort of) couple reunions, two hot new cast members, and one REALLY BIG FISH!
Not bad for a single hour of television, right? Let’s recap!
There’s No CRYING in Fishing!
When the episode opens, Meredith is nagging Derek about his decision to take Cristina fishing, on his day off. While Meredith might very well be concerned about Cristina’s emotional state, her PTSD,
how gosh darn frustrating and annoying her character has become since The Shooting, and her sudden inability to practice medicine, she seems most worried about Cristina’s bodily functions. “There’s no bathroom,” whines Meredith.
Clearly, in addition to all the other things PTSD has done to Cristina, it has also made her incontinent . . .
Don’t leave home without them . . .
Ignoring Meredith’s plaintive potty pleas, Derek takes Cristina out on the lake for an exciting afternoon of sitting in a boat and stroking poles. Cristina tries to impress Derek with all of her newly acquired fishing knowledge. But Derek basically tells her to shut the hell up.
“Be quiet, or I will CUT YOU! I’ve done time in the pokey, you know . . .”
Then Cristina catches a BIG FISH . . .
. . . which makes her cry . . .
“I just pooped in my pants.”
. . . and makes Derek smile.
“Haha, Owen has to sleep with Poopy Pants tonight!”
Luckily, the moment was captured on camera!
Because, who wouldn’t want to remember a thing like that?
Apparently, Cristina’s dramatic tears are supposed to represent progress in her “Journey Back to Mental Health” or something . . . At least, that’s what Meredith and Derek think . . .
Then again, they aren’t the ones who have to sleep with Poopy Pants . . .
“Thanks a lot, A$$holes!”
Speaking of A$$holes . . .
Wanna Play the Blame Game?
Meredith and Owen have been bickering like an old married couple, because Meredith thinks Owen is “letting Cristina fall apart, and doing nothing about it” (which he is). And Owen thinks Meredith is a “reckless suicidal wackadoo, who asked a psychotic gunman to shoot her” (which she also is). Owen even goes so far as to kick Meredith out of his ER! There is obviously some angry sexual tension here. But if the writers of this show ever make Meredith and Owen cheat on their respective spouses, and hookup, I will be SUPER PISSED!
Just sayin’ . . .
Sex with you makes me sad!
Do I have to break out the Rubber Duckie again?
If there was a book of things you should never say to your lover . . .
. . . “Sex with you makes me sad,” would be on the first page . . . and “while I’m having sex with you, I think about [insert name here] would be on the second. Nevertheless, these are the words Callie and Sloan exchange with one another, after a morning of sharing hot showers. After, Callie kicks Sloan out of the shower . . .
. . . and he “recovers” . . .
. . . Dr. McSteamy becomes determined to win back Lexie, a girl who doesn’t get sad from screwing him. First, Sloan does Lexie a
sexual medical favor, in exchange for her agreeing to get a drink with him at Joe’s. Lexie doesn’t really want to go out with Sloan. So, she tells Avery to interrupt the date, and make an excuse as to why she must leave.
(Unfortunately, Avery was dressed at the time . . .)
Then, Sloan chats with a patient, who started to date her now-husband, because he kissed her while “bowling” ( not a sexual euphemism, sadly), and was a “Really Good Kisser.”
So, when Lexie arrives at the bar, and starts babbling on-and-on about why she can’t date Mark again, he does this . . .
And, suddenly, Lexie is in luuuuuuuuuuuve again. Then, Avery arrives . . .
Sorry, Avery! It looks like you’re stuck with me! 🙂
Eat My Door, Arizona!
“And no, that is NOT a euphemism for sexual favors either . . .”
Callie’s still feeling like crap this week, because her girlfriend, Arizona, dumped her for Africa. And because she wants to let everyone know that she’s “Still Awesome,” Callie commandeers Alex to help her perform a new non-invasive type of hip surgery on a patient, who has a majorly annoying wife . . .
Alex and Callie rock the surgery . . .
But Alex still wants to specialize in Pediatrics. So, he turns down Callie’s offer to train him as a Bone Specialist.
Callie: “Why are doctors who like kids always dumping my ass?”
Speaking of doctors who like kids and dump Callie’s ass, Arizona shows up at Callie’s door toward the end of the episode. But, rather than apologize for breaking her heart and leaving her ass that the airport, Arizona just tells Callie she missed her a lot, and decided to leave Africa, because not having sex with Callie “made her sad.”
“That’s all you’ve got to say for yourself, B*tch?”
So, Callie slams the door in Arizona’s face, and goes back to rubbing her duckie . . . solo . . .
Marry Me, Noel Crane!
“What will Felicity say?”
Nice Guy, Noel Crane from that old show Felicity has a pretty bad tumor, and has maxed out his health insurance . . .
So, he asks his girlfriend, who is NOT named Felicity, to marry him, so that he can get her PPO. (That’s not a sexual euphemism either . . . sorry!) NotFelicity ultimately turns Noel Crane down because she is a heinous b*tch.
Teddy, who is feeling kind of crappy about the whole “Cristina has PTSD” thing, and recognizes that her own character has been generally unlikeable for quite some time now tries to get the hospital to take on Noel Crane’s treatment pro bono.
But THIS GUY says “NO.”
“You can hate me if you want, but I’ve got my SAG card now . . . and no one is taking that away from me.”
So, Teddy asks Noel Crane to marry her and use her health insurance. Noel Crane says “Yes” . . .
(Somewhere in TV Land, Felicity Porter is crying her eyes out . . .)
“This is worse than the time I got that bad haircut, and everyone stopped watching my show . . .”
In other, New Hot Cast Member news . . .
Greetings, Nurse Panty Dropper!
Making sponge baths fun for TWELVE YEARS!
Bailey is still obsessed with fistulas, ever since Mandy Moore croaked from them . . .
(well . . . not really . . . but on this show she did!). Now, Bailey’s got her residents investigating various ways to prevent fistulas. But they are taking WAY too long in doing so. So, Bailey gets an idea . . .
After seeing how awed the residents are by watching Bailey extract a gallbladder through a patient’s mouth . . .
. . . Bailey asks Lexie if she would like the opportunity to do the same thing on her own. Lexie says she wants it about as much as she used to want a pony when she was a kid . . . In other words, she wants it A LOT! April (who now has a new hair color, which makes her look like kind of like those old Strawberry Shortcake dolls) . . .
. . . brags that she worked hard when she was a kid, and actually got herself a pony . . .
April’s Little Pony
Anyway, Bailey tells her “pony-loving” Fistula Research Crew that the resident who’s patient doesn’t get fistulas will win the opportunity to pull a gallbladder out of somebody’s mouth . . .
But NONE of the residents can prevent the fistulas! You know who DOES prevent the fistulas though? THIS GUY . . .
I’m talking about hot half naked guy on the left with the BIG Hose! (Unfortunately, he was dressed at the time . . .)
When Bailey asks Nurse Panty Dropper (that’s my new name for the dude pictured above), why he insisted on removing a patient’s “tube,” despite Lexie’s request that he leave it in for two more days, Nurse Panty Dropper replies that he is not just a “Pretty Face”
he is a Majorly Hot Body too! In fact, Nurse Panty Dropper has been removing tubes from patients for twelve years, and they never got fistulas.
In other words, “Butt Out, BAILEY! I’ve got this sh*t under control!”
Upon reviewing Nurse Panty Dropper’s records, Bailey learns that he ALWAYS removes the tube in question after THREE DAYS, instead of FIVE. And it is this early tube removal that apparently prevents fistulas. GO FIGURE!
Bailey is very happy!
“I CURED FISTULAS!” She shouts triumphantly, interrupting the Chief’s board meeting to share the happy news. (Ummmm . . . actually Bailey, Nurse Panty Dropper cured fistulas, you just kind of watched . . .)
Bailey is so thankful for Nurse Panty Dropper and his Hot Bod of Sin miraculous medical techniques, that when he asks her out on a date, she says, “OK . . . because you gave me Day 3.”
“And because I’m very handsome,” adds Nurse Panty Dropper.
Bailey nods shyly at Nurse Panty Dropper’s assessment. Then she butt wiggles away, so he can get a nice shot of her rearview. And why the heck not? She’s just had the BEST DAY EVER!
Well, that was “Adrift and at Peace” in a nutshell. And . . . since there are no new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy until January . . .
. . . I leave you with this promo, to wet your whistle for what’s to come . . .
See you next year!
