Episode Recap

As Preston continues to head the surgical team while Dr. Webber is still recovering, Mrs. Webber cuts her vacation short to come and care for her husband. Even though he isn't particularly happy about her presence, he makes the best of the situation. Addison Shepherd is still lurking around the hospital, which causes tension in her relationships with both Derek and Meredith.

Cristina and Meredith both express a great deal of bitterness toward their past doctoral flames (Preston and Derek, respectively). However, as their work shifts progress, it seems as though they begin to see the happier sides to their men. Even George is having love life issues of his own. Several times he is teamed up with nurse Olivia, with whom he had previously had a relationship. In the end, though, he admits to her that he doesn't see them together in the future, and that he likes "another girl" (Meredith).

Meanwhile, a car crash brings a couple and their son to the hospital. The other driver involved in the accident dies, and the husband will die as well unless he can have a liver transplant. The only possible donor is his son, but he is unsure if he wants to make that donation because of the way his dad abuses his mother. Alex is able to talk (and relate) with him. Eventually, the son chooses to make the donation, but he asks his mother to leave his father and inform the cops of the situation.

Miranda deals with an unusual surgery of a man who has blocked bowels. He doesn't say what caused the blockage, but X-rays reveal the heads of ten Judy Dolls (similar to Barbie dolls) lodged in his bowels.
