In the first episode of a three-part story arc, the staff at Seattle Grace swings into action when disaster strikes on Coleman Dock. A cargo ship has plowed into a ferryboat, killing several people and seriously injuring many more. Some of the survivors are in such bad shape that Dr. Webber must literary play God, deciding on the spot who can be saved and who can't. Cristina takes special interest in a grotesquely disfigured and very pregnant "Jane Doe", while Alex must keep his arrogance in check as he deals with the victims' anguished relatives. The situations worsens when, while providing aid and comfort to an eerily calm child victim, Meredith loses her footing and falls in the water--and she can't swim!

Recap of Events:

This episode opens with Meredith trying to deal (or not deal) with the fact that her mother is once again in an Alzheimer state--in other words, she doesn't recognize Meredith after being lucid for a short time last week. To Meredith, it's like she lost her mother all over again and she has to mourn. We see her in the bathtub, sunk deep down under water, and suddenly Derek is worried and pulls her out. She objects to being "rescued."

The Chief has to endure razzing by the other Attendings on the elevator--he died his gray hair black, thinking it'll help him with "the ladies." Addison comes to his rescue, feeling some

Cristina and Burke are arguing about who should tell the news about their engagement. Cristina is adamant she should tell her friends--especially Meredith--first, but even though she has many opportunities in the locker room, she can't quite get it out. Is she having second thoughts about the engagement, or is this another Cristina quirk?

The surgeons are gathered in the clinic for triage training, and are only half-heartedly paying attention when the Chief comes in and announces it's all hands on deck for a major catastrophe with multiple traumas.

Opening Statement/Quote:

Disappearances happen in science. Disease can suddenly fade away. Tumors go missing. We open someone up to discover the cancer is gone. It's unexplained, it's rare, but it happens. We call it misdiagnosis, say we never saw it in the first place, any explanation but the truth. That life is full of vanishing acts. If something that we didn't know we had disappears, do we miss it?

Ending Statement/Quote:

Title Reference:

This episode's title refers to a song by Aerosmith. Alternately, the title is also that of songs by Milk Inc., Ozzy Osbourne, and Eddie Money.
