Denny needs a heart or else. Izzie and George go crazy trying to get him one. Derek has the life of a friend in his hands as he operates on Burke who has been shot. Burke cannot operate on Denny after Denny's heart stopped and now Denny is in a dire condition. Cristina gets put in charge of the ER and she is worried about Burke.

Why didn't I take the internship in San

Do you think I want to hear that?
[Richard] We'll have to do an angiogram.
You've been feeling sick for a month?
His left ventricle's shot

That heart is not yours. Seattle Grace

And I could...
Iose function of the entire arm.
- Not now, Addison.
I can't. I have to pump his heart.
Here are the labs.
In the few hours it would take a new
LVAD to be delivered, he'll be dead.
It is a time-out. What we did
is way in need of a time-out.
Come on, come on, come on, come on.
I'm sorry. I didn't...
- You're welcome.
- We can handle this.
- And Addison having that meltdown?
- No, I'm not.
- Yeah, you're swirly and twitchy.
Everybody looked like ghouls.
Oh, no, no.

George and Derek work together, Denny still doesn't have a heart, and Meredith gets paired with Callie. A 12-week pregnant girl dies in the O.R. and her parents try to keep the baby alive. This causes tension between Derek and Addison. One doctor's overreaction unites two bickering patients. Finn is still treating Doc for medical problems.
Let's irrigate the wound and get them
to X-ray and order a tet-tox for both.
Rule out other injuries
then get him up to Radiology.
Hey, Chaz. Larry. No offense, but you
guys got to think quicker on your feet.
I could stay. We could send Bailey.
Whoo! See you later, Yang. Whoo!
The answer is no, Stevens.
All right. Fine.
You can inform him the heart's coming.
When I told you about management,
you should've listened.
I'm saving up to go back to school.
I need the job.
You... are getting a heart...
I'm... I'm sorry... I'm tired.
They pass you over for surgery or duck

Dr. Hahn here graduated second in

- He went into v-fib.
that you share with your precious
McDreamy? Yeah, I... I know about him.
Uh... hours ago.
and then again in the elevator...
Then take him off the drip
and put him on dopamine. Now!
As far as we can tell, the baby's fine,
but... that's not the point.
Uh, I'm happy for you
that you're not feeling much pain
and he's standing there
talking about putting the dog down.
- He'll get the next heart, lz.
- No! He needs to get this heart!
- What's all that?
- Heart stuff.
In order for you to get the heart, you
would have to get worse. Much worse.
Well, you may not want it.
His angiogram shows 30%% % LAD.
This has gone on long enough.
I'm calling a nurse.
OK? Please! OK?
I can't do this if you don't.
You were devastated when I met you.
When I get confirmatory tests and labs

The staff attends to an intern from another hospital who has short-term memory loss. This intern, named Marshall, also has caused a car accident that involved a married couple, their unborn baby and the woman's parents who the staff are also
treating. The pregnant woman is named Melanie and she will die but her baby may survive. One of the female interns meets up with a woman from her past who is planning on having a family of her own. Cristina is in a good mood although Alex, Izzie, George, and Meredith are having problems but in the meantime Burke hasn't forgiven Cristina for her late night faux pas. Meredith and Izzie are making fun of Callie's household habits and George and Callie are having a fight because of George's roommates. Addison is continuing to own Alex and he's upset about it. Denny has an outburst at Izzie and Derek has an outburst at Meredith.

Prolonged extrication in the field.

- Dr. Bailey, another car crash victim.
- That's him! That's the guy who hit us!
[Derek] I'm going to say three words

- Not cool, Yang.
- What does she mean? Captain?
- You washed your hands, right?
- Of course I washed my hands.
[woman on PA]
Dr. Stevens, Dr. Howard Stevens, 1435.
Good, you should be, because, I mean...
Um, get him to his room,
I'll get Dr. Burke.
I told you the LVAD
would buy you more time. And it will.
And his feelings about it aren't
something we should try to control.
Get me a stretcher.
Let's pull her out of there now!
We are going to do
everything we can.
Don't worry about finishing repairs.
Crisis management, just get it done.
- We're going to need a moment.
- I'm backed up here with five patients.
Poor sad sack Denny
just needs a little perspective.
- Unsalvageable, I'm afraid.
You got to take responsibility
for your actions for once in your life!
So it's a balancing act.
You know how long a baby can survive
inside its dead mother? Five minutes.
I fell asleep at a restaurant.
At a table while I was on a date.
I found Izzie.
She said she had a patient.
and I come back

Your short-term memory loss
was a result of the concussion.
So was the knitting a phase?
Who's next? Alex?
Well, still a fine line.
She may not be quite stable enough.
And it's my job to have an opinion.
It's my job to have an answer.
[Richard] Yang. Come and start
washing out the abdominal cavity.
Good. OK. OK.
Shepherd's still in surgery.
I told her to hurry.
- OK. See you.
I washed my hands. I... I went down to

Addison's patient is a Catholic mother of seven. Addison gets in trouble after learning that the patient's husband won't use contraceptives. Derek treats a divorce attorney who asks if Derek is in need of her services. While Izzie and George are
talking about their personal lives they "overhear" part of Derek's conversation with the divorce attorney who calls herself one of Seattle's best. Alex gets in trouble with Addison yet again for not being able to keep his mouth shut when other people think he should. A legendary jazz musician refuses to see medical reason. The musician is Burke's musical hero. Finn makes Meredith breakfast.
How about you handle Denny Duquette

- No. Um, 42.
- You want to do him, do him.
- Not do him. Date him.
- How are you feeling today, Denny?

Listen, one more setting, Mr. Foote.
If you pull up my medical records,
you'll find three natural child births,
So if you want to throw me off the case,
But we'll go with ''Good morning''

If all the normal methods have failed,
then... what are we supposed to do?
I'm busy doctoring, Dr. Stevens.
No time for chitchat.
But I remember picking it up.
I'd like you to be the one to operate,
OK, what if it were you?
I've got 20 tubes coming out of my body,
It would concern me
if you were making medical decisions
- Good. Maybe you're not so stupid.
Well, I'm not seizing. But I am having
an acid flashback. Does that count?
If he found out, what? I mean, he won't
divorce you. He doesn't believe in it.
How's Denny doing? Bailey's not
caving in on the LVAD thing, is she?
Can you hand me the Bovie, Dr. Karev?
Rose, before we bring
your family in to see you,
She is our patient.
Our obligation is to her and her only.
You're not the dirty ex-mistress.
She's your friend. I'm your friend.
OK, good. So, caffeine's for seizures.
What's the doughnuts for?
This is fun. Yeah, right? You know?

Oh, my God! You knew the risks!
Everything looks good, Denny.
''You probably shouldn't

- I'm not punishing you, Dr. Bailey.
I am. But I'm also dating.
Mr. Ward has been speaking with our

The holiday season has started but not everyone is in a festive mood. This is Alex's last day in the hospital unless he passes his boards practical exam the next day, thus everyone helps him to review so that he succeeds. However, Izzie is not happy
about the others helping him and Meredith has to remind her of the true spirit of the Christmas holiday. Justin is in need of a new heart. One is available but he does not want it because he does not believe Santa gave it to him as his mother said. Cristina and Burke, both handling Justin's case, have opposing views on the matter due to their different stances on religion. Despite a reconciliation with his wife, Derek isn't in a festive mood. George has a simple case of a woman who has a bleeding ulcer, he realizes that the ulcer is caused by her entourage but fails to keep them away, with the consequence that it perforates.
He'll probably be fine.
He's always been a little hard-headed.
