RAISE YOUR GLASS
McDreamy hits the bar to celebrate receiving his grant. McSteamy, Callie, Teddy and Bailey tag along. Surprise! Cristina Yang is a bartender now. They watch her drunken debauchery while lamenting their love lives. Teddy hates online dating, Callie misses Arizona and Bailey misses Ben. Cristina, meanwhile, is having a great time flirting with customers.
Eventually, the party disperses. Bailey passes out at the hospital -- but only after indulging April Kepner with some of her drunken wisdom. (Among the tidbits? Don't get serious about Karev.) Callie makes the mistake of hooking up with McSteamy.
Never miss a local story.
McDreamy, meanwhile, hangs out at the bar to watch Cristina. He learns she's already been fired for drinking too much. McDreamy sits in the distance and calls Owen, Cristina's husband, to come pick her up. He arrives and Cristina calls him her boyfriend.
Owen's not too thrilled, but still takes care of Cristina in her drunken state.
ON THEIR OWN
Meredith deals with a young boy experiencing severe abdominal pain. His mom is a nurse within the hospital system. Meredith consults Stark (you know, the weird guy from "Ally McBeal"). He complains about Meredith interrupting his dessert and diagnoses the kid with simply having bad gas.
The patient's mom swears his condition is more complex. She contacts Chief Webber, who convinces Meredith and Karev to pick up the pace on the patient's tests. The results reveal the kid has an ulcer -- slightly more serious than gas.
Meredith and Karev take the reins and proceed with surgery in Stark's absence. Later, he yells at them while Webber smiles in the background. He's proud.
Owen, Avery and Lexie deal with two brothers affected by a horrible car accident. One of the brothers dies quickly, while the other brother has an operation and survives. Through the process, Lexie learns Avery isn't OK -- psychologically, that is. When she says he can talk to her, he delivers an observation about the brother who survived. He says the surviving brother will spend the rest of his life wondering why he lived and his brother died. Hmm. Looks like SOMEBODY is still affected by the shooting.
STUCK LIKE GLUE
April Kepner treats two teenagers who glued themselves together. She has problems finding a cure until Bailey -- in the middle of her drunken stupor -- suggests soap and warm water. It works, and the next morning April tells Bailey she's glad they're friends. Unfortunately, Bailey wants to pretend the conversation never happened. You know, because she was drunk and everything.
