DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
CRISTINA is going fishing and Meredith is deeply concerned because there are no proper bathroom facilities in the woods. I don’t know where she thinks that saying does a bear ----in the woods originated. She carries on and on about it (there are no bathrooms, Cristina) to the point where I’m starting to question her ability to practise medicine. Again. And so’s Cri- stina (Sandra Oh), who clearly put in her own catheter hours ago. I don’t know what happened to Cristina — is this still trauma from the shooting that took place last season, and if so, surely that should’ve worn off by now.
But this is network television, for crying out loud. The incident has plainly done untold damage if she thinks fishing is the cure. Fishing with Derek Shepherd. Who, as a brain surgeon, keeps telling her to switch off her brain. The other doctors are also doing very little.
The last time I watched this show Torres was a lesbian; tonight she’s in the shower with Mark Sloan, discussing the sex they had last night.
She’s cleaning her teeth in the shower, too, so we can see she’s thoughtless about a range of issues, not just her girlfriend, Arizona, who’s saving orphaned children in Africa.
Mark Sloan would prefer to be nailing Meredith’s sister Lexie though, he tells Torres, who goes on to do a hip replacement unruffled.
Lexie, she tells an operating theatre of senior doctors, really, really wanted a pony when she was a child, which means she’ll more than likely now get to pull a gall bladder out of an unconscious person’s mouth. I wonder if the unconscious person is aware of this technique? The gall bladder’s in a little bag; it looks like one of those ones you put your hosiery in when you wash it.
To recap: Someone shuts a door in someone’s face, someone asks someone else to go out with them, someone asks someone to marry them and fistula is said too many times. Grey’s Anatomy Channel 7, 8.30pm
