Oct 17, 2008 06:51 AM ET by Erin Lulevitch
This week Callie experiences first-date jitters as she prepares for a night out with Erica and Derek stumbles upon an interesting artifact at Mer's house, which could land him back in his trailer before the week is out. Meanwhile, Cristina uncovers a hidden gem at Seattle Grace.
The light-hearted fun and camaraderie is back! This episode definitely had elements of surprise and silly fun, which was certainly lacking last season. And not to make use of a bad pun, but by the end of this one I was seriously in stitches! Ha!
So, let's start with Callie. The former Mrs. O'Malley sure had herself worked up in a frenzy over a dinner date with Erica. While most people would probably be worrying about getting food stuck in their teeth that night, Callie went the whole nine yards and started fearing the possibility of going all the way. Now, even though Callie had already clued Sloan in on her new romance, she found herself turning to Bailey for advice instead. All I can say is the look on Bailey's face was priceless. In fact, we had to wait quite a while for Bailey's response, which coincidentally, you will, too.
Now onto George. How great was he with Duncan (Max Burkholder), the kid who didn't want to have surgery? All I could think was this kid must be the mirror image of George when he was that age. I loved it when he told the kid's dad, "I think us airplane guys just like to know how things work." And he was right, because that's all it took to get Duncan on board for a surgery of his own. Once George started showing Duncan exactly what to expect, everything was fine. But hello? Can we talk about the moment they showed Arnie (Larry Brandenburg) with his face peeled off? I thought for sure that would scar Duncan for life and send him running out of the hospital
