McDreamy gets an ultimatumâ€”Meredith or Addison. Izzie declares â€œBoys are stupid.â€ After her date with Alex, Izzie leans in for a kiss, but he pulls away. Seriously??? She looked hot. She even shaved her legs. Sheâ€™s rightâ€”boys are stupid. Meredith and McDreamy fight over why he didnâ€™t sign the divorce papers. Sheâ€™s not gonna be that woman who breaks up a marriage or begs you to want her. Sheâ€™s out of this relationship. You know heâ€™s going to charm his way back. You just know. Alex and George get stuck in an elevator with a gunshot victim desperately in need of heart surgery. They canâ€™t wait for the power to come back. Burke talks them through it from the hallway. Alex freezes, but George takes over and successfully finds the hole in the patientâ€™s heart. He plugs it with his finger. Now he just has to stand still â€˜til the power comes back on. Meanwhile, Cristina is forced to help a patient who uses porn to relieve his pain. Heâ€™s not a perv. Heâ€™s allergic to meds and porn is the only thing that helps. Now with the power out, Cristina has to describe sexy scenarios in her own words. Sheâ€™s surprisingly good at it. Meredith and McDreamy treat a Hmung patient with an aggressive spinal tumor that needs to be removed immediately or she wonâ€™t walk again. Her devoutly religious father refuses to allow his daughter to have the operation. McDreamy does everything he can to convince the father to change his mind, even flying in a shaman to help find her soul. Izzie deals with a female patient who literally has a broken heart. She experiences what appears to be a heart attack every year on the anniversary of an old loverâ€™s death. How do they fix that?
