Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Bailey doesn't see eye-to-eye with the new pediatric surgeon on a case she's been involved in for some time. Derek doesn't see eye-to-eye with a patient who's on death row. Alex doesn't see eye-to-eye with the other man in Izzie's life because he's not real, and Meredith and Cristina don't see eye-to-eye on anything, which means they aren't talking and Cristina looks elsewhere to vent. Callie and Mark DO see eye-to-eye on their own personal problem though, which makes for some interesting times for each. Written by Moviedude1
