Previously on Grey's Anatomy, Meredith basked in dating two men, McSteamy wore a towel and wore it well, Denny and Izzie were in love, Callie and George fought about moving in together, Denny died, Burke shook, and Meredith decided to flip a coin.
Meredith comes in to work, and naturally, voiceovers this week's theme. "At some point during surgical residency, most interns get a sense of who they are as doctors." George is also in the locker room as she says this, in a green and white striped polo shirt that makes him look approximately 8 years old. She continues, "And the kind of surgeons they're going to become." With the rubbing of his face, George clearly doesn't know anything like this. She lists some options, so that we can helpfully see bits of people like Callie and McDreamy at work, and she says that these distinctions also help define people. "Because, outside the operating room, not only do most surgeons have no idea who they are, they're afraid to find out." On cue, she guzzles some bright pink pepto straight from the bottle.
