Niles Girl - Here is the recap I did for the most recent episode of the show ( originally posted on Monday on another message board I frequent.) It's long so I'll do it in a couple of parts. It was one GREAT episode!!
Last night's episode started with Meredith and Christina running. They were chatting and layed down in the grass b/c they got too tired. The day at the hospital then begins with rounds. Izzy is going on to Meredith and George about how really cool Alex is, if you would just get to know him. Meredith and George (and Christina to some extent) are like 'Izzy- you are nuts! We hate Alex, he's a pig.' Just then, like on cue, Alex says something crass to a patient who blushes severely everytime she has any kind of emotion, and this seems to confirm the other's notions that he is a pig. Izzy yells at Alex later for always behaving 'piggish' in front of the other interns, even though he's a nice guy when he's with Izzy alone.
There is some commotion before duties get assigned, and everyone runs down to the ER entrance to see what the commotion is. A patient is being wheeled in on a stretcher yelling and cursing. Dr. Bailey is walking alongside the abusive patient and keeps demanding from the others to call out the name of the patient. Izzy has read the chart by this time and she finally, after much yelling from Dr. Bailey, says 'Ellis Grey' really loud. Meredith is hiding behind a pole b/c her mother spotted her and is screaming at her. Ellis believes that she is back in her residency, and she begins ordering everyone around as if she is going to perform surgery.
All of the interns meet to get their assignments from Dr. Bailey. Nobody knew that Meredith's mom had Alzheimers' so Bailey is totally shocked and it shows. Christina is assigned to help Dr. Burke with a procedure on a Dry Cleaner who developed Lung Cancer from the Dry Cleaning fluids he worked around for so long. Christina tries to protest, but Dr. Bailey sends her on her way. Izzy is assigned to work with BOTH Dr. Shepherds on a pediatric case and then Dr. Bailey says to George 'And you take care of Dr. Grey.' George HUGS Dr. Bailey and says 'Thank you, thank you, she needs a friend right now!' Bailey looks at him oddly and says - No George, the OTHER Dr. Grey, Ellis Grey. George gets it and looks embarrassed and scurries away.
Dr. Bailey confronts Meredith about how she's feeling and Meredith says she's "Fine." Meredith will say "I'm Fine" about 900 times this episode, even though everyone knows that she isn't.
