When Meredith catches Yang and Shane printing out another sure-to-be-contaminated conduit, she launches into another smelly word-vomit: "It's not working! You are not Christ child reincarnate! You do not walk on water! You have failed to revolutionize modern medicine and save a baby all in one fell swoop!" Jesus! I feel like she just unleashed five weeks' worth of overblown insults. Has she snapped for the final time or is this fight destined to continue until the at least the midseason break?
Smash put his Under Armour-sponsored foot down and said hell no to Meredith's lack of reason. "YOU'LL GET THE PRINTER TOMORROW, DR. GREY," he boomed. The nerve of this guy! Yang loves nerves almost as much as she loves (medically) broken hearts, so she swoops in and smooches her intern. Then she gives one of her trademark Dr. Yang's Very Slight, Very Grave Smiles and we know she's confident with that most recent move.
Dr. Smashané has totally stepped up as the best intern at this point. I loved the way he left no room for discussion after passing off his dirty work onto Steph and walked away briskly, shouting "DYING BABY WAITING ON A HEART." He's baby Yang! That baby's about to get lucky. With Yang. Now it sounds gross. I guess you're right. It was gross to begin with.
So Meredith doesn't invite Yang to the Thanksgiving dinner (apparently being prepared by Emma) as they all stand there in stony silence. That's Owen's new girlfriend, by the way. Dr. Emma Muffins. She showed up early in the morning (?) to write a grant proposal and be near the chief, then darted away to whip up the quickest turkey dinner ever created. Maybe THAT's why Mer's printer malfunctioned. Dr. Muffins was totally asking it to produce a well-seasoned feast.
Line of the night: "You kiss my kids with that mouth?!" --Meredith, after Alex reminded her that, like Jo, Mer had once been "an intern balling an attending." This was in response to Mer's slight eye roll about Alex inviting Jo to her impromptu party. Alex and Jo seem to be going strong -- after he said he didn't wanna be at Mer's dinner if she didn't come, Jo 1) called him "sweet" and 2) said "I think I love you" and Karev didn't even flinch! He was likely too distracted by the thought of eating takeout fried chicken in the car, like they both had been raised to do out there in delicious trashyland.
Interns Jo, Leah, and Stephanie wisely chose the more reliable way to eat (I don't believe for a second anyone ended up gobble-gobbling at the Dreamhouse): They'll share a Thanksgiving fried chicken dinner with Dr. Webber, who'd intentionally failed his stress test by ticking the treadmill a few decimal points too high, then breaking some ribs after the unforgiving moving walkway flung him mercilessly to the floor. Now that's what I call chaining yourself to a hospital bed!
