Episode 4.06: Title Unknown

Airdate: November 2007

  • 09/16 - Mr. Arnold comes in the ER due to shortness of breath and a heart condition. He dreams of seeing a previously-thought-extinct bird but his medical condition may prevent him to do so. Sally, a rock climbing instructor, brings Rick to the ER after he fell while climbing. It seems to have been a nasty fall. Helena and Jackie are brought in on the same gurney because they are both holding on to a huge key: the first one to let go will lose a contest in which they can win a house. Helena is missing part of her scalp and has a broken nose while Jackie has a dislocated shoulder and a fractured leg. Both ladies do not want to let go of the key. A doctor convinces Jackie to let an intern (looks like it'll be George) to take her place in the contest so they can treat her. The doctors try to take care of Helena while she still holds the key. But what will happen when she needs surgery herself? Source: SpoilerFix.com

A Gentleman's Evening

Episode Recap: "Kung Fu Fighting" (November 1st, 2007)

Well, tonight wasn't exactly the evening I had anticipated at Seattle Grace, but it was still a fun night. The highlight of which, was every scene shared by Derek and Mark, as they tried to decipher what the Chief meant by "a gentleman's evening." It did sound dirty and with three eligible bachelors in attendance, it certainly had the potential to involve tassels. So, I can't help but wonder how it might have ended up, if Dr. Hahn had not crashed the party.

And while we're on the subject of Dr. Hahn, I have to say, I'm having a hard time adjusting to her cut-throat style. I realize she's a no-nonsense type of person, but cutting Cristina out of that heart surgery tonight was just cruel. Especially when it was Cristina that provided the answer to how they could operate on Mr. Arnold (Cullen Douglas), avoid using the anesthesia he was allergic to and ultimately save his life. Okay, so some credit does belong to Izzie here. After all, she did take the time to think about how Mr. Arnold would feel in that OR and she knew to hide the monitors, so that he couldn't see the actual surgery being performed on him. Heck, she even thought to post a picture of an ivory-billed woodpecker on his drip bag, just to help keep him focused on his goals. And then there was also that great idea she got to calm Mr. Arnold down, after he realized he was being watched by a multitude of doctors. Her suggestion to compare the docs to birds worked like a charm and he was right on the money with his choices. My favorite analogy was Cristina being compared to a purple sandpiper, who according to him is known for being a tough bird and a survivor.

As for the ladies fighting to hold on to the wedding dress tonight in order to win a $100,000 wedding package, well, I give them props for their determination, but come on! If you end up in a bloody mess at the ER with a dislocated shoulder and other injuries, is it really worth it? Sounds like Cristina needs to use her psych book to do a little analyzing for those two. Though I will say this sub-plot did lend itself to a nice monologue from Callie: "You shouldn't have to fight this hard for a wedding. You fight this hard for a marriage. You need to know when to let go! Just let go!" You tell 'em, Callie! And I was also glad to hear Callie tell George that she was ready to let go of "them," too.

I also need to mention that it was great to see David Denman as Rick, the barely injured sky-diver tonight. David, also known as Roy in The Office, happens to be one of my TV crushes, so it was a nice surprise to see him in this episode. Missed the scruffy look he usually has going though.

And on another note, it was interesting to see that George and Izzie failed to connect in the bedroom tonight, despite their "hot" plans to do so, from earlier in the day. Izzie broke down into tears from exhaustion (courtesy of the open-heart surgery she participated in), and George agreed that he too, wasn't up for a night of romping (due to his tired arm). I don't doubt that Izzie really was drained or that George's arm was sore, but I also think there's more going on here than that, and dare I say it, this could be the turning point where we finally start to see their romance unravel!

So, what did all of you think of tonight's episode? Do you think Cristina will ever be able to get into Dr. Hahn's good graces? Will Gizzie fall apart now? Let me know your thoughts!
