Things become more strained than usual between Burke, who has been offered the position of chief surgeon and Cristina, who is still keeping Burke's tremors a secret. Meredith must bite her tongue to keep several secrets from her half-sister Molly, who has been admitted as a patient. George senses his father's vulnerability for the first time when his father undergoes surgery. Mark and Derek must cope with conjoined twins who refused to be separated despite the consequences of not doing so.

Recap of Events:

All the residents except for Meredith are shunning Cristina, now that her secret is out. George is particularly bitter because she was willing to let Burke operate on his father. The Chief won't punish Cristina and Burke, much to Bailey's dismay. The Chief orders Burke to get his hand fixed but Burke tells Derek he doesn't want another surgery, implying that his tremor is all Derek's fault.

Meredith tries to convince a distraught Ellis that Richard's leaving her happened years ago. Ellis says it's all because she had a daughter and that she should never have had children.

Miranda comes up with her own punishment for Cristina, assigning her to assist Dr. Hahn with Mr. O'Malley's surgery. The other interns complain that it's not a punishment at all, until she shows them the other case she wants their help on: Two conjoined twins who want to be separated.

The separation surgery is going to require 22 doctors, including Mark, Derek, and Miranda. Burke's blaming him shakes Derek's confidence, and he refuses to do the surgery, claiming it's too dangerous because both twins could end up paralyzed. Miranda confides to Derek how Burke's bumping her from his surgery made her question her own ability. She tells Derek she knows he can pull off this surgery.

Ending Statement/Quote:

At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.
