Round Table: "Band-Aid Covers the Bullet Hole"
This week on the Round Table, George remakes himself, Denny almost dies for the 43rd time, and Cristina showcases her maternal instincts...
How long will it take for to George forgive Meredith?
McCritic: About the same amount of time it will take him to bed Dr. Torres. Once George gives himself to a woman who actually appreciates his charm, good heart, awkwardness and rock hard abs - as opposed to one that cries uncontrollably at the gentle touch of his embrace - he'll realize there aren't just other fish in the sea; there are beautiful mermaids who don't have an eye for a married doctor. Or Syphilis.
iheartizzie: About as long as it takes his hair to look normal again. George, have you heard of barber shops? Have you never gone to such a place? Seattle must have dozens. Get with the program, then get with Dr. Torres already.
Married-to-McDreamy: Married-to-McDreamy feels that George will need approximately 42 days to forgive Meredith. Or at least enough time for him to become sufficiently distracted by Dr. Torres.
Who won the Scrabble game between Izzie and Denny?
iheartizzie: It can go either way. Izzie has the vocabulary edge as a medical practitioner, but Scrabble is about opportunistic positioning as well as straight wordplay. If Denny can land "S-E-X" or "D-E-A-T-H" on one of the coveted triple word score square at a critical moment, he could steal this contest from the brainy blonde.
Married-to-McDreamy: Izzie won the game for sure. Denny was too busy gazing at her to even assemble any words. And he had congestive heart failure, which often tends to distract one from a board game.
McCritic: Izzie. I'm not even sure what Denny was thinking getting involved in such a game with a doctor. We're talking about a profession that uses words such as "angioplasty," "oseotomy," and "stat." She'll blow him out of the w-a-t-e-r. When it comes to Scrabble, Izzie is a heartless competitor. Or, wait, that's Denny.
Better maternal instincts: Britney Spears or Cristina Yang?
Married-to-McDreamy: Cristina. She was holding that baby as if he were a bomb about to go off. Britney does not take nearly as much care. She just throws hers into the front seat of her car.
McCritic: Britney. While driving with a child on your lap isn't recommended by the PTA, Ms. Spears' first single showcased her liberal side. She's a relaxed, laissez faire parent whose child will develop self-confidence through the behavior he or she chooses. Baby, don't worry about it, hit her one more time! This is the yin to Dr. Yang's overly controlling nature and pathetic poop prowess.
iheartizzie: Cristina may not be a natural, but at least she tries. Britney puts her infant at risk, and breeds with Federline. That's just horrifying.
What would be the name of a band started by George and Dr. Burke?
McCritic: The Cristina Yang Experiment.
Married-to-McDreamy: "Mending Broken Hearts" or "The Calm, Cool, and Collected, Amazingly Talented Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon and his Intern All-Star Polka Band."
iheartizzie: "Cuttin' Heads." Yes, I know Dr. Burke is not a brain surgeon.
