GREY'S ANATOMY EPISODE RECAP


"THE SELF-DESTRUCT BUTTON"

airdate: May 8, 2005
written by: Kip Koenig
directed by: Darnell Martin


It's a toss-up as to who is more disgusted by the news that Meredith has slept with Derek: Meredith's roomies Izzie and George, or the interns' granite-faced supervisor Bailey. Back at Seattle Grace, Derek picks George to assist him during an extremely delicate brain operation, but George may lose the opportunity if he speaks up about the drinking problem of veteran anesthesiologist Dr. Taylor. Elsewhere, Izzie performs emergency surgery on a disgruntled gent who has swallowed his girlfriend's car keys; Alex meets a fellow former wrestler named Owens, who has developed a morbid fascination with self-mutilation; and several of the interns become involved in the plight of a teenager who is suffering the after-effects of a botched gastric bypass operation.

GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:

OK. Anyone who says you can sleep when you die, tell them to come talk to me after a few months as an intern. Of course, it's not just the job that keeps us up all night. I mean, if life's so hard already, why do we bring more trouble down on ourselves? What's up with the need to hit the self-destruct button?


GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:
Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know, maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.

GREY'S ANATOMY MOMENTS
Grey's Anatomy shockers, rule-breaking, grab-the-edge-of-your-seat moments....

  • Derek and Meredith don't get any sleep because they go at it all night! They are so tired the next morning that Derek has to use eye drops!






GREY'S ANATOMY EPISODE TRIVIA
Goofs, behind the scenes facts, and little-known tidbits...

  • George goes to the OR to talk to Dr. Shepherd and the anesthesiologist walks by. George smells booze on his breath. But then the doctor is closing up. Why would the anesthesiologist show up as the surgery is ending?

  • Goof: In this episode, Izzie is overwhelmed when she finds out about Meredith sleeping with Derek; nonetheless, in the pilot episode, when Cristina is mad at Meredith she yells at her how she slept with her boss, and Izzie is present in the conversation, so, she would already have to know about Meredith's fling with Derek
