Chicken surgeries will qualify the two surgeons to get in on the penis surgery. The surgeons compete. Ryan wants a normal life and his brother eggs him on to get a real penis organ instead of  fix-up. Sloan urges to the patient that reconstruction is less risky.

At home, Cristina makes a musical breakfast with Owen that involves cooking with both hands for ambidextrous utility. They get ambidextrous on the floor. At work, Avery’s mother hones in on Meredith as Lexie’s sister.

Avery and Meredith are chosen for the transplant. Cristina practices the surgery using her left hand and is disqualified. The patient’s brother Chad is very gung-ho about him having a working penis.

Teddy and Henry are throwing a dinner party. Teddy invites Bailey and others. Bailey and her nurse Eli are invited but Ben catches Bailey watching Ben’s behind. Ben tells Bailey he sees she is no longer held together with tape and wire so he will not be bribing Pierre to stay out of her surgeries. Ben is upset with Bailey for starting with the nurse instead of him.

Ben is angry that Bailey told him she was through but he heard that she wnated him to wait for her. In the operating room they start arguing about it. She says the relationship she has with the nurse is more of a fling than a serious romance.

Sloan is not invited to the dinner party because he is  the babysitter for Callie;s baby.

In the surgery Avery’s mother asks April why she won’t have sex with a man. April is a ninny about handling the male member. She says he keeps looking at the patent's penis like it’s going to bite her. Avery’s mother greets Weber with love. She tried to hit on him and asks is he is still married. Weber sighs and says he is.

She says how could he let Avery go into plastics. She says plastics is for ordinary people. Weber says she has to let Avery go his own way. In the surgery Meredith stops making history on the penile transplant because Cristins interrupts and breaks confidence to get her to come to Zola’s surgery.

Bailey and Eli draw blood from Henry. Henry says he has to get out of the procedure to finish marinading the meat. Eli is stunned to learn he is not invited. Bailey is flummoxed.

Avery and Mrs. Avery and Sloane argue about Avery’s career and the penile surgery.  Mrs. Avery says plastic and boob jobs is the easy medical concentration choice and Mark gets insulted. Avery says he is talented enough to make his won choices.  The argument gets heated.

But during the surgery April is distracted and wrecks the artery involved. Mrs. Avery wants a bad vein but Mark suggest a superior genital reconstruction, and Avery gets to show Mrs. Avery the better technique. Mark has Avery do it. The three work together successfully.

Arizona tries to get Derek to calm down. Karev says Pre-Op 1608 is where his baby is. The shunt Derek put in is the problem.  The couple can't make contact with thebaby without screwing up the adoption. The social worker is prowling.

Arizona plans to unkink the shunt or convert to another type. Derek probes Robbins’ intended  techniques and decisions. Derek says it is all Meredith’s fault. Hunt says he and Cristina just went through something. Derek can’t stop blaming Meredith. But Hunt sees Cristina handle Zola with love for Meredith's sake.

Meredith is in bad shape with the surgery worry but Weber is still  trying to get Bailey on the trial. Bailey sas no way. Meredith and Cristina wait for news. There is a message from Karev they had to resection a small part of the bowel.

Weber says Bailey is the moral compass of this hospital. He says he promised Ellis Grey on her deathbed to take care of her but Bailey says that Meredith can’t get on the trial Weber set up. Bailey realizes she is using Eli for sex but wants to safeguard a deeper relationship with Ben later.

Karev and Arizona operate tensely. Karev points out that Robbins doesn’t have the rights over Sophia that Meredith and Derek lack over Zola. Karev touches a nerve. Robbins says that everything would have been fine if Karev hadn’t felt so guilty about Meredith that he had to tell them. Meredith and Derek sweat it out.

About the author tvqueen


I like to watch TV shows from classic eras as well as contemporary drama and comedy. Science Fiction is fun, and shows like the Cape and Fringe keep hope alive that the medium that produced Space 1999 is alive. Comedy such as 30 Rock is usually, good, but not always. I like Survivor but it has so little to do with survivor skills I am disappointed. Appointment viewing is Grey's Anatomy, NCIS LA, The CSI series for New York and Las Vegas and Miami, with a special shout out for the new Hawaii Five O. Gordon Ramsay's Hells Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares are top of the line viewing for the drama comedy Gordon's character and the business lessons they teach.
