A storm rages in Seattle. Izzie is very disappointed by her date with Alex, and Meredith is upset with Derek. They both complain to George, which drives him crazy. At the hospital, Cristina is assigned a patient who uses porn as a pain killer, and Meredith takes care of an Asian girl who needs to see a Shaman before surgery. There is a power shortage, and George and Alex are stuck in an elevator with a critical patient. They need to perform heart surgery, but Alex is too freaked out, so George does it. Written by

When George and Alex are in the elevator prepping for surgery on the gunshot victim we see Alex and George both put on surgical gowns and gloves. Yet, when George removes the bandage from the wound, we see Alex look up at George and Alex is suddenly not wearing either the gown or the gloves. The next time we see Alex, he is once again in a surgical gown and wearing gloves. See more

Okay, here it is. Your choice, it's simple, her or me. And I'm sure she's really great. But Derek, I love you. In a really, big really big pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your bedroom window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you... love you. So pick me. Choose me. Love me. I'll be at Joe's tonight so if you do decide to sign the papers, meet me there.
