Plus de détails

Izzie est dans la cuisine, elle sort tous ses livres de recettes. Meredith tente de sortir en catimini de la maison. Izzie l’arrête et lui demande où elle va. Meredith dit qu’elle va ouvrir la porte. Justement, on sonne. Izzie comprend que son amie veut aller travailler. Elle la sermonne : c’est Thanksgiving, ils sont une famille, ils doivent préparer le dîner ensemble. Meredith ouvre la porte à trois hommes qui recherchent George. Ils entrent en poussant des cris. Meredith en profite pour partir. Izzie la somme de rentrer pour 18h.

Addison et Derek sont sur un ferry. Elle lui propose de faire l’amour pour fêter Thanksgiving. Il ricane. Elle sait que ça va leur sembler étrange parce que ce sera la première fois depuis Mark et Meredith. Ils sont en congé tous les deux, elle a réservé une table dans un restaurant, elle aimerait qu’ils en profitent pour crever l’abcès. Il ne dit rien.

Bailey apprend à Meredith qu’en raison du jour férié, elles seront sous la responsabilité d’un médecin de Mercy West, le Dr Kent. Elle remercie l’interne de s’être proposée pour travailler en ce jour de fête. Meredith rétorque qu’il n’y a pas grand-chose qui lui donne envie de dire merci. La résidente lui dit qu’elle va être très occupée, il y a toujours beaucoup de patients les jours fériés.

Derek, Richard et Burke se retrouvent devant le tableau du planning. Ils sont tous les 3 en congé et affirment qu’ils ne font que passer.

Le Dr Kent se présente à Meredith et Bailey. Il se montre assez méprisant avec cette dernière. Il lui dit ne vouloir travailler qu’avec un seul résident, celui que tout le monde surnomme le "Nazi". Meredith sourit. Bailey assure ne pas connaître cette personne, elle va la rechercher.

Les trois hommes qui ont débarqué chez Meredith sont en fait le père et les deux frères de George. Dans la famille O’Malley, la tradition veut que, le jour de Thanksgiving, les hommes chassent la dinde. Ils veulent que George les accompagne et tue sa première volaille. Izzie est désespérée, elle se retrouve seule pour préparer le repas.

Meredith doit examiner Holden McKee, qui est plongé dans un coma végétatif depuis 16 ans. Il est placé en maison de repos et est tombé de son lit. L’assurance veut qu’il soit examiné. Pendant les soins, Meredith lui parle, elle envie sa sérénité. Elle sursaute quand le patient ouvre les yeux, il semble la regarder. Elle en avise aussitôt Bailey qui lui dit qu’elle se fait des illusions. Néanmoins, elle lui conseille de demander l’avis d’un neurologue.

Le Dr Kent arrive et demande à Bailey quel travail il peut faire. Elle lui suggère d’effectuer des sutures pour 13 patients. Il estime que c’est un travail en dessous de ses compétences et demande à ce que Meredith s’en occupe. Bailey réplique que la jeune femme doit accompagner son patient au scanner, c’est un ordre du Nazi. Le Dr Kent s’incline.

Cristina arrive chez Meredith avec Burke. Elle lui fait ses dernières recommandations : interdiction de mentionner le nom de Derek et d’Addison ou de faire la moindre allusion à la syphilis. Izzie est étonnée de voir que le cardiochirurgien est présent. Cristina lui explique qu’elle a essayé de s’en débarrasser mais il s’est accroché. Elle panique dès qu’elle réalise qu’ils ne seront que trois. Izzie laisse un message sur la boite vocale d’Alex pour lui rappeler qu’elle l’attend pour dîner.

Derek prévient Richard qu’il a terminé ses visites, il va retrouver Addison. Meredith arrive. Il lui dit qu’il ne pensait pas la voir là, ce jour-là. Elle lui parle de son patient. Il pense qu’il ne s’agit que de réflexes. Elle insiste et ils se chamaillent. Il faut le geste de s’en aller mais se ravise.

George est dans la forêt avec ses frères et son père, il traîne derrière, il n’est pas passionné par la chasse à la dinde.

Izzie a raté sa marinade. Burke se rend compte qu’elle n’a jamais cuisiné pour Thanksgiving et prend les choses en mains, au grand dam de Cristina qui ressent soudain un grand besoin de boire de l’alcool. Izzie ne cesse d’appeler Alex qui ne lui répond jamais.

Derek ausculte Holden, qui ne réagit à aucun stimulus. Tout à coup Meredith parle et Holden la suit du regard. Le scanner révèle que le patient n’était pas en coma végétatif mais au minimum de sa conscience.

Alex écoute les messages sur son répondeur mais ne rappelle pas Izzie.

Cristina ne trouve aucune bouteille d’alcool chez Meredith. George a de plus en plus de mal à supporter sa famille. Ils se téléphonent et le jeune homme supplie son amie de venir le chercher. Elle lui raccroche au nez.

Addison est assise sur un banc. Elle appelle la messagerie de son mari.

Meredith et Derek arrivent dans la salle d’attente qui est bondée. Meredith repère immédiatement la femme de Holden. Le neurochirurgien lui apprend, ainsi qu’à son fils, que son mari ne va pas tarder à reprendre conscience, ce qui ne l’enchante pas car elle vient de se remarier et elle attend un enfant. Lorsqu’elle réalise que son ex-mari n’aura pas conscience du temps qui s’est écoulé, elle préfère s’en aller, elle ne veut pas qu’il sache qu’elle ne l’a pas attendu.

Le Dr Kent s’emporte sur Bailey, il travaille aux urgences et il est débordé. Il exige qu’elle vienne l’aider. Elle ne peut pas, elle est obligée d’aller au bloc, sur l’ordre du Nazi.

Richard ne se résout pas à rentrer chez lui.

Joe arrive chez Meredith. Il présente son petit ami, Walter, à Cristina qui n’en a cure : elle veut boire !

George tente de faire partager sa passion de la chirurgie à ses frères qui ne comprennent rien. Au contraire ils se moquent de lui parce qu’il n’a pas encore opéré quelqu’un tout seul, il se contente de regarder les vrais chirurgiens. George se sent incompris, il n’a qu’une envie, rentrer.

Alex retrouve Meredith, elle lui avoue qu’elle l’impression d’infecter les gens normaux avec son malheur. Alex lui confie à son tour qu’il a raté ses examens, il ne veut pas le dire Izzie. La jeune femme lui conseille d’assister au dîner.

Holden sort de son coma. Lorsque Derek lui explique ce qui est arrivé, il demande combien de temps il a été dans cet état. Il semble effaré à la pensée que cela ait pu durer un an. Il veut que Meredith lui dise la vérité. Elle hésite, en tant qu’interne, elle n’a jamais fait ce genre de choses. Il insiste et elle lui avoue tout. Il pleure.

Burke et Izzie sont toujours en cuisine pour préparer la dinde. Joe, Walter et Cristina les observent. Cristina n’en peut plus et décide d’aller acheter de l’alcool. Preston ne comprend pas sa réaction. Elle a du mal à le voir opérer une dinde et sympathiser avec ses amis. Elle promet qu’elle va revenir.

George réussit enfin à tuer sa dinde. Il va pouvoir rentrer.

L’IRM montre qu’Holden à un hématome extradural au cerveau. Il faut opérer de toute urgence mais l’opération est très risquée. Le patient demande à Meredith ce qu’elle ferait. Elle ne veut pas répondre.

Izzie et Burke apprennent à se connaître. Il se plaint que Cristina ne cherche pas à mieux le connaître. Elle est fâchée parce qu’Alex n’est pas là. Tout à coup, ils remarquent que Cristina est partie depuis 1h déjà. En fait elle est à l’hôpital, elle cherche un malade à opérer.

Pour fêter la victoire de George, ses frères tirent une salve et envoient des plombs dans les fesses de leur père. Tout le monde se retrouve à l’hôpital. George s’énerve contre ses frères parce qu’ils jouent avec les instruments médicaux et parce qu’ils n’ont jamais d’autre conversation que les voitures. Il s’en va en claquant la porte.

Derek et Meredith regardent Holden qui discute avec son fils de 16 ans. Celui-ci s’en va après avoir promis de revenir. Holden apprend à Meredith qu’il est décidé à subir l’intervention : sa femme et son fils ont été de l’avant, il va faire la même chose. Il lui demande si elle pense que son fils reviendra, elle répond qu’elle l’espère.

Bailey et Cristina sont au bloc. L’interne est étonnée que la résidente travaille un jour de fête. Miranda veut travailler le plus possible avant la naissance de son bébé. Cristina est sidérée par la nouvelle. Bailey lui dit que Burke aurait fait un bon père pour son bébé.

Derek va entrer en salle d’opération avec Holden. Meredith lui demande ce qu’il aurait décidé à sa place. Elle, elle aurait choisi l’opération, c’est-à-dire avoir un avenir, ou retomber dans le coma, mais pas être entre les deux. Lui ne sait pas. Elle n’est pas étonnée de le voir hésitant. Il lui propose de le rejoindre au bloc dès qu’elle en aura la possibilité.

George revient s’occuper de son père qui lui reproche d’afficher un peu trop sa supériorité. Il doit prendre conscience que s’il est différent des siens, il fait tout de même partie de la famille. Ses frères font l’impossible pour l’intégrer mais lui les méprise. George lui relate ses exploits de l’ascenseur. Mr O’Malley ne cache pas sa fierté.

Meredith se préparer à rejoindre Derek lorsqu’elle le voit qui fait un massage cardiaque à Holden. A travers la vitre, il lui fait signe que tout est terminé. Ils vont avertir le fils.

Joe et Walter prennent congé. Il est plus de 20h, ils doivent aller tenir le bar. Izzie et Burke se préparent à manger en tête-à-tête lorsque George et Cristina les rejoignent.

Meredith et Derek sont assis sur un banc, devant le Seattle Grace. Il aimerait savoir comment elle a pu reconnaître la femme d’Holden parmi tous les occupants de la salle d’attente. Elle lui répond que les salles d’attente sont toujours pleines de gens remplis d’espoir. Cette femme était la seule qui semblait avoir renoncé. Il se lève et s’apprête à partir lorsqu’elle lui demande s’il aime toujours Addison. Il répond qu’il n’en sait rien. Elle trouve que c’est bien qu’il essaie de sauver son mariage. Il ne serait pas lui si ce n’était pas le cas. Ça prouve qu’elle ne s’est pas trompée sur lui. Elle a les larmes aux yeux. Il est ému aussi et la remercie. Elle se lève et lui dit "au revoir, Derek". Il lui répond "au revoir, Meredith" et la regarde partir.

Meredith et Alex se retrouvent devant la maison. Il entre, elle pas. Izzie est heureuse de voir son ami.

Bailey gronde Richard parce qu’il est toujours là. Le Dr Kent comprend enfin qui est le Nazi.

Dans la voiture, Burke reproche à Cristina son manque de curiosité à son égard. Il lui révèle que sa mère tient un restaurant en Alabama. Elle lui avoue qu’elle été au bloc pendant l’après-midi.

Derek arrive à la caravane et aperçoit Addison qui l’attend sous la pluie. Elle lui dit qu’elle l’a attendu et veut savoir s’il compte lui faire payer longtemps son erreur. Il s’assied à ses côtés et l’embrasse.

Meredith est assise au comptoir, chez Joe. Un jeune homme lui demande s’il peut s’asseoir à ses côtés. Après s’être assurée qu’il n’est ni neurochirurgien, ni docteur, elle l’invite à lui payer un verre.

 

[INT. MEREDITH’S TOWN HOUSE]

(Opens with Izzie dumping a frozen turkey into the kitchen sink. She’s getting recipe’s and books out in preparation for cooking Thanksgiving dinner)


Meredith Voice Over (MVO): Gratitude, appreciation, giving thanks. No matter what words you use it all means the same thing. Happy.

(Cut to Meredith dressed to go out sneaking down the stairs. She sneaks past the kitchen peeking quickly to see if Izzie is there)

MVO: We’re supposed to be happy. Grateful for friends, family. Happy just to be alive.

IZZIE: Hey.

(Meredith stops sneaking instantly and spins around. Izzie is standing right behind her with a recipe book)

MVO: Whether we like it or not.

IZZIE: What do you think you’re doing?

(The doorbell rings)

MEREDITH: Uh … answering the door.

(Izzie looks at what Meredith’s carrying)

IZZIE: You’re going to the hospital?

MEREDITH: Yes but after …

IZZIE (interrupts): Meredith everyone is supposed to be in the kitchen by 9am to help me make dinner. It’s Thanksgiving.

MEREDITH: I’m really not in the mood.

IZZIE: But it’s like a family …

(Izzie is interrupted by the doorbell again)

MEREDITH: Doorbell.

(Meredith makes her way over to the door. She opens the door with a strange look on her face. An older man, who turns out to be George’s Dad and his two brothers Ronny & Jerry are standing at the door)

MR. O’MALLEY: Is this where Georgie lives?

MEREDITH: Georgie?

MR. O’MALLEY: O’Malley. Where is he, upstairs?

MEREDITH: Oh George. Yeah.

(They enter the house)

MR. O’MALLEY, RONNY & JERRY (yell): O’Malley!

(They run up the stairs chanting O-MALL-EY, O-MALL-EY)

Izzie (to Meredith): Should I call the police?

(She turns her gaze back up to the stairs. Meredith takes the opportunity to sneak out and closes the door. Izzie hears the sound and calls out)

IZZIE: Meredith I’m serious! You need to back here for dinner at 6! I mean it!

(Cut to George lying in his bed. He has his eyes closed and arms stretched out in the air. He’s counting down softly. You can hear the O’Malley chants getting louder. His family opens up the door and yell)

MR. O’MALLEY, JERRY & RONNY: Happy Thanksgiving!

(Cut to a Ferry boat sailing across Seattle harbor. The camera zooms up close to the boat. Derek is on board with a cup of coffee. Addison is on there with him)

ADDISON: So um … I was thinking that we could … have sex tonight.

(Derek half chuckles I think slightly disconcerted by the idea)

ADDISON: Look I know we’re both gonna feel weird about it. It’s the first time …

DR. SHEPARD: Since Mark.

ADDISON: And Meredith. … I have the day off. Do you have the day off?

DR. SHEPARD: I need to stop by the hospital. I have patients I need to check on. You have the day off what are you doing here?

ADDISON (shrugs): Was thinking we could have sex tonight. (Derek turns slightly at this) Come on I made a reservation at noon. I figured we could do the Thanksgiving thing you know and then … I dunno, just rip the stitches. Get it over with.

DR. SHEPARD: No anesthesia.

ADDISON: Right. … What do you think?

(Cut to Meredith by herself getting ready in the staff locker room tying up her shoe laces. Bailey comes in)

DR. BAILEY: Grey. We’re working with a temp attending today. Dr. Kent. He’s subbing in for Mercy West. We need to get him orientated. (She turns to walk out but turns back quickly) And thanking you for volunteering to come in. Saving me from having to choose an intern to torture.

(She starts walking out and Meredith gets up and starts walking with her)

MEREDITH: Happy to be tortured.

DR. BAILEY: Not a fan of Thanksgiving.

MEREDITH: Not a whole hell of a lot to be thankful for.

(Bailey nods slightly. They start walking down a hallway together)

DR. BAILEY: I like Thanksgiving. Day people spend with their families. Too much family time triggers depression, repressed childhood rage, bitter disputes over the remotes and way too much alcohol. (They come to a stop in front of an elevator) People get stupid. People get violent. People get hurt.

MEREDITH: And that’s a good thing because?

(The doors open and people walk off. They get on the elevator)

DR. BAILEY: Surgeries Grey! Lots and lots of surgeries.

MEREDITH: I never thought of that.

DR. BAILEY: The stupidity of the human race Grey. Be thankful for that.

(Cut to Dr. Shepard walking down a hallway in the hospital still in his casual gear. He comes to the O.R board where Richard is standing looking over it also dressed in casual wear)

DR. SHEPARD: You’re supposed to be at home.

RICHARD: So are you.

(Dr. Burke comes into the hall dressed in his blue scrubs)

DR. BURKE: Ah best mazed procedure I’ve ever done. Under an hour.

DR. SHEPARD: I thought you had the day off.

DR. BURKE: I did. I do. I’m leaving. I simply like to start my day cutting. Gives me a rush.

(He starts walking off)

DR. SHEPARD: Yeah admit it you can’t function 10 feet away from the hospital.

(Burke stops walking)

DR. BURKE: Uh I notice you’re both here.

DR. SHEPARD: Well I’m here for an hour.

RICHARD: I’m on my way home.

DR. BURKE: Ah, say it like you mean it.

(He chuckles and starts walking off again)

RICHARD (to Derek, adamant): I know how to have a life outside this hospital.

(Richard walks off and Derek heads the other way)

DR. SHEPARD (chuckles): Yeah damn right you do.

(Cut to a man named Dr. Kent standing in the middle of the hallway looking over some patient files. Bailey & Meredith walk up to him)

DR. BAILEY: Dr. Kent?

(He starts walking off. Bailey & Meredith follow him)

DR. KENT: Yes?

DR. BAIELY: Uh I’m the surgical resident assisting you today. I know you’re subbing in for Mercy West so if there’s anything I can do to help …

DR. KENT (stops walking & interrupts): Look, I’m here for one day. I don’t need my ass kissed. All I need is to tell you what to do and you do it. And I don’t like mistakes.

(Meredith glances at Bailey for her reaction to this)

DR. BAILEY (off put): I don’t make mistakes.

DR. KENT: Whatever. There’s only one resident I want in my O.R. Guy they call the Nazi. Do you know him?

(Bailey & Meredith glance at each other)

DR. BAILEY: The, the Nazi?

DR. KENT: He’s very word of mouth. Stellar rep. Balls the size of Texas?

DR. BAILEY (raises her eyebrows): That big? (Meredith looks at Bailey trying not to smile) Sounds like an impressively talented man this Nazi.

DR. KENT: Do you know him or not?

DR. BAILEY: Never heard of him. (Meredith smiles at this) But I’ll be sure to keep an eye out.

DR. KENT: For now you can work on smaller cases. A guy just came into curtain 3. Page me if you get confused.

(He walks off)

DR. BAILEY (calls out): I’ll be sure to do that. (to Meredith): Like I said the stupidity of the human race.

[INT. MEREDITH’S TOWNHOUSE]

(Cut to George rushing down the stairs with his family)


MR. O’MALLEY: Hurry up Georgie! There’s a turkey out there with your name on it.

(He walks past the kitchen where Izzie is getting out utensils to start cooking. She sees George being whisked away)

IZZIE: Whoa, hey! (She runs into the main foyer entrance) Hey! Where are you going? (She grabs George by his jacket to stop him from leaving) Hey, where are you going?

(His family wait at the door)

GEORGE: Every year, my father, my brothers and I hunt, shoot and kill a helpless slow moving turkey. (sarcastic) Isn’t that great?

MR. O’MALLEY, RONNY & JERRY: O’Malley!

(Ronny & Mr. O’Malley head out the door. Jerry comes forward, grabbing George to go with them)

IZZIE: Okay but what about dinner?

JERRY: Oh we’ll have him back as soon as he kills his first bird. Right this year Georgie becomes a man, right Georgie?

GEORGE: It’s George! Come on.

(He moves to close the front door behind him)

IZZIE: Okay, wait, wait! I can’t make dinner by myself. Who’s going to help me?

GEORGE (hisses): Who’s going to help me?

(Jerry has run back and grabs George to go with them. The door slams shut)

[INT. SGH]

(Cut to Bailey & Meredith pulling back Curtain 3 where a guy lies comatose on a bed. Nurse Olivia is already there with his chart)


OLIVIA: Holden McKee brought in from Mayfield Nursing Home.

DR. BAILEY: Mayfield? He’s in the garden?

(Olivia hands Bailey his chart)

MEREDITH: Garden?

DR. BAILEY: Vegetable.

OLIVIA: Yeah his chart says he fell into a persistent vegetative state 16 years ago.

(Dr. Bailey gets a confused look on his face as if to say why is he here then?)

MEREDITH (now reading the chart): He was a firefighter. Injured by falling debris in the line of duty.

DR. BAILEY: What brings him here today?

OLIVIA: Fell from his bed while being turned by the orderlies. Insurance says he has to be checked out.

(Bailey points to Meredith to check him out)

MEREDITH: Temporal parietal scalp lace with associated haematoma.

DR. BAILEY: What’s your plan?

MEREDITH: Irrigate and explore the wound. Repair the lace. He’ll need a CT to rule out intracerebral hemorrhage, contusion or cerebral oedema.

(Bailey nods)

DR. BAILEY: Go to it. Anybody asks I’m off looking for the Nazi.

(She & Olivia leave)

MEREDITH (to Holden): Okay it’s just me and you. (She starts to explore his head wound) I’d give anything for your kind of serenity. (to herself) Great. Now I’m jealous of vegetables. You just look so peaceful.

(All of a sudden Holden opens his eyes and looks directly at Meredith. Meredith jumps back in alarm, letting out a small yell)

(Cut to Meredith entering a trauma room where Dr. Bailey and several other E.R doctors and nurses are tending to a patient)


MEREDITH: Dr. Bailey?

DR. BAILEY: This guy’s got 3rd degree burns over here over half his body. Tried to deep fry a turkey. Of course he got drunk first. It’s gonna be good, you want in?

MEREDITH: My PVS case. He opened his eyes. And I think he was looking at me.

(All the people in their chuckle except for Bailey)

DR. BAILEY: He wasn’t looking at you.

MEREDITH: No he was.

(Dr. Kent comes to the door)

DR. KENT: Anything good?

(Bailey gestures quietly to the E.R docs to hide the patient from Dr. Kent’s view)

DR. BAILEY: Uh nothing you want to waste time on. There are ah 13 patients that need sutures.

DR. KENT (points to Meredith): She’s the intern. She can do the sutures.

(Meredith gives him a look but he doesn’t see)

DR. BAILEY: Uh actually she’s on her way to CT with a VIP patient on orders from the Nazi.

DR. KENT: Tell him I’m looking for him.

(She nods slightly and he leaves)

DR. BAILEY (to the ER docs): Okay the burn unit is waiting for him. I’ll meet in the O.R. (to Meredith) Grey, get a CT. Have neuro consult. But trust me he wasn’t looking at you.

(Cut to the outside of Meredith’s Townhouse where Burke & Cristina who are both dressed very nicely talking. Cristina rings the doorbell)

CRISTINA: Don’t mention Shepard. Or Montgomery-Shepard.

DR. BURKE: Okay.

CRISTINA: Or the fact that Shepard is with Montgomery-Shepard.

DR. BURKE: Okay.

CRISTINA: Or anything ever to do with syphilis.

DR. BURKE (chuckles and rings the doorbell again): I’ve been in social situations before.

CRISTINA: Yeah well not with me.

DR. BURKE: Well why are we here?

CRISTINA: Just be nice or something.

(Izzie opens the door wearing an apron. She doesn’t see Dr. Burke who is not standing in front of the door directly)

IZZIE (agitated): It’s half past 10! You’re late! I’ve had to try to do all …

(She stops instantly when she sees Burke peering past the corner of the door and puts on an awkward fake smile)

IZZIE: Oh hi Dr. Burke. Hello. (He gives her a half-wave) Oh.

(She moves to the side so Cristina & Burke can enter through the door. As Cristina is walking by Izzie, Izzie grabs her arm and pulls to talk closely with her. Burke walks in past them and looks around the foyer of the house)

CRISTINA (whispers to Izzie): What was I supposed to do? Blow off my boyfriend for Thanksgiving? (Izzie gives her a look) I tried to. He wouldn’t blow. He’s like something sticky that won’t blow off.

IZZIE (whispers back): Okay, he’s gonna ruin Thanksgiving. Now what am I supposed to talk to Dr. Burke about?

DR. BURKE (speaks up loudly and walks up to them): People who are shocked when I show up uninvited to their homes call me Preston.

(Izzie lets out a forced half chuckle)

CRISTINA: Nobody calls you Preston.

DR. BURKE: You don’t call me Preston. (to Izzie) Nice house.

IZZIE: Yeah.

(Burke goes back to exploring. Izzie gets a cordless phone from her apron pocket and dials a number. You can hear the ringing)

CRISTINA: Izzie why is it so quiet in here?

IZZIE: Uh Meredith went to the hospital and George is off shooting things with his family.

CRISTINA (mortified): So it’s just me, you and (she whispers) Preston?

IZZIE: And Alex when he shows up.

CRISTINA: Oh great.

IZZIE (speaks into the phone): Hey Alex it’s me, where are you? Okay. Call me back.

(She hangs up the phone)

DR. BURKE: Is something burning?

IZZIE: Oh god yes!

(She runs off to the kitchen)

(Cut to back to the hospital where Dr. Shepard is dressed in casual gear ready to go home. He walks up to Richard who is standing at a nurse’s station)


DR. SHEPARD: Hey Chief.

RICHARD: I’m on my way home.

DR. SHEPARD: Yeah me too. Was supposed to meet Addison twenty minutes ago.

(Meredith walks up behind Derek just as he says this with Holden’s file. Derek putting on his jacket turns and sees Meredith. He’s a little put off)

MEREDITH: Dr. Shepard. You’re leaving?

RICHARD: Uh I’m also going home.

DR. SHEPARD: Then go home.

RICHARD: Adele’s sister is in town. I hate that woman.

DR. SHEPARD: The O.R board needs to be checked one more time.

RICHARD: It does, doesn’t it? Excuse me.

(He walks off)

DR. SHEPARD: I didn’t think you’d be here today.

MEREDITH: Yeah well. … I need a neuro consult. (She hands him the file) Holden McKee. PVS, 16 years.

DR. SHEPARD (looks through the file): Well there’s no bleed, there’s no mass, no fracture. He can be discharged.

MEREDITH: Well he opened his eyes when I was examining him. He opened his eyes.

(Meredith hands Derek a pen to sign the file)

DR. SHEPARD: Yeah that’s normal. Certain reflexes are preserved. There’s arousal but no awareness.

MEREDITH (nods): But he was looking at me.

DR. SHEPARD: He wasn’t looking at you.

MEREDITH: He was.

DR. SHEPARD: The CT report says he wasn’t.

(He hands her back the file)

MEREDITH: Do you wanna argue with what I know I saw?

DR. SHEPARD (grabbing his case): No Meredith. I don’t wanna argue with you anymore. I gotta go, I’m late.

(He starts walking off. Meredith is a little stunned by his behaviour. He stops himself and walks back)

DR. SHEPARD: He was looking at you?

[EXT. SOME WILDERNESS FOREST AREA]

(Cut to George, Mr. O’Malley, Ronny & Jerry trekking through some wilderness. They’re decked out in camouflage army wear, carrying guns and coolers)


RONNY: ’65 GTO.

JERRY: ’67 Bel-air convertible. Two-door.

MR. O’MALLEY: The GT 500. Now that was a car. Georgie pick a car. Come on.

GEORGE: Do you realize that you can buy a turkey? At the market? They’ve got hundreds of them. You know all wrapped. They’re ready to go. No ammo required.

MR. O’MALLEY: You’ll be the one to shoot the turkey today. I can feel it.

GEORGE: See that’s the thing. I dun wanna shoot the turkey.

JERRY: You say that every year!

GEORGE: Well and every year I don’t shoot the turkey.

[INT. MEREDITH’S TOWNHOUSE, THE KITCHEN]

(Izzie is on the phone again. Cristina is sitting on a high chair at the island. Burke is holding a pan that is smoking. He points to the pan)


DR. BURKE: What is that?

IZZIE: It was supposed to be my marinade. (speaks into the phone) Alex it’s me again. Just wondering where you’re at.

(She hangs up)

DR. BURKE (says as a statement): You’ve never made a Thanksgiving dinner before.

(Izzie is quiet slightly nodding)

CRISTINA (affronted): You can’t cook! Izzie!

IZZIE (defensive): Well I’m a baker! I bake. But I’ve seen my grandmother cook a million times.

(Dr. Burke shrugs off his coat and puts it in a nearby chair)

CRISTINA: Okay that’s it. If there’s no food I’m going home.

DR. BURKE: Cristina, Cristina, I have this. (to Izzie) What are you using as a reference text?

IZZIE (she gestures to a book on the island): ‘The joy of cooking’. I also printed up some recipes from the internet but they all seem to contradict one another. (She wanders over to the sink) And I can’t seem to figure which side of the turkey is up and which is the bottom.

(Cristina moves to speak but Burke gestures her to be quiet. He walks over to the sink and washes his hands)

DR. BURKE: Okay. Okay. Um. I’m gonna need the basing brush, a bowl, uh a clove of garlic (Izzie starts looking madly for the stuff) and ah do you have any fennel?

IZZIE: Uh yeah right here.

(She brings the fennel to the sink. Burke rolls and cracks his neck. Izzie smiles excitedly. It’s very reminiscent of a surgery)

DR. BURKE: Ah okay, well let’s get this turkey up and running Stevens. Garlic.

(He holds at his hand)

IZZIE (she slaps the garlic into his hand): Garlic.

(She grins broadly. She looks back at Cristina who looks anything but amused)

CRISTINA (to herself): I’m gonna need liquor. Lots and lots of liquor.

(Cut to Holden lying unconscious in a patient room. Dr. Shepard is standing on one side of the bed checking his eyes with a small flashlight. Meredith is standing on the other side of the bed watching)

DR. SHEPARD: There’s no sustained visual pursuit. You might have just seen his respond to some sort of external stimuli. He wasn’t looking at you. I’m sorry.

MEREDITH (leans in close over Holden): And I was sure he was. (Suddenly Holden’s eyes dart towards Meredith) Look he just did it again.

DR. SHEPARD: Mr. McKee can you follow the light?

(He holds the flashlight above Holden’s eyes moving it back and forth. Holden’s eyes don’t move)

DR. SHEPARD: Can you hold up two fingers?

(No movement again. Dr. Shepard gives a look as to say see?)

MEREDITH (looking at Derek): Well okay I know you’re late for something …

(Derek notices Holden’s eyes move towards Meredith)

DR. SHEPARD (looking at Holden): Keep talking.

MEREDTITH: What?

DR. SHEPARD (he gestures to his side): Walk over here.

MEREDITH: What?

DR. SHEPARD: Just keep walking. Talk.

MEREDITH (walks over to the otherside): Holden. Holden. Holden, can you hear me? Holden.

(Holden’s eyes move to where Meredith is standing)

DR. SHEPARD (amazed): It’s you. He’s tracking you. He’s following your voice.

(Meredith nods slightly)

(Cut to Meredith & Derek looking at some x-ray scans of Holden in the x-ray room)



DR. SHEPARD: Well that’s why there’s no mention of brain atrophy in the CT report. Cause there isn’t any.

MEREDITH: None? He’s been PVS for 16 years.

DR. SHEPARD: He’s not PVS. He’s minimally conscious.

MEREDITH: He’s minimally conscious and no-one noticed?

DR. SHEPARD: He was in a regular nursing home so they just …

MEREDITH: … missed it.

DR. SHEPARD: Mmm.

MEREDITH: He’s been frozen. Sleeping for 16 years and they missed it. That sucks.

DR. SHEPARD: There’s one thing to be thankful for.

MEREDITH: What?

DR. SHEPARD: We might be able to wake him up.

(Cut to Alex studying in the empty hallway hangout area. He’s listening some of the voicemails Izzie has left him)

IZZIE: Alex, its Izzie. If you’re not coming you could have at least have the decency to call and tell me.

(Alex shuts his phone frustrated and hits his back against the wall but continues to study)

(Cut to George on his mobile phone behind a tree while his brothers and father are a few feet away. He’s on the phone to Cristina who’s stuck townhouse searching for liquor but coming up empty handed. The scene alternates between the Townhouse and the Wilderness)

GEORGE: I’m in hell.

CRISTINA: I’m the one in hell. Burke’s going all Iron Chef in your kitchen. Get your ass back here and save me.

GEORGE: I’m in the woods with shotguns, liquor and car talk. It’s like deliverance out here.

(George sees his brother’s having a drinking contest)

CRISTINA: Well obviously you’ve got liquor. Where does Meredith keep the booze?

GEORGE: Uh I don’t think she has any.

CRISTINA (mortified expression on her face): How’s that possible? She’s a wasp. Liquor is like oxygen to a wasp.

GEORGE: Which is why we’re out of liquor. Listen, can you come and get me?

CRISTINA (yells): Okay how am I supposed to get through the holidays without liquor George?!?

(She moves to hang up the phone)

GEORGE: Just come and get me! Cris … hello? (He shuts his phone close and hisses to it) Selfish!

(Cut to Addison sitting by herself at a bench in a courtyard of sorts with a view of the harbor with a picnic basket. She’s on her phone)

ADDISON: Derek, it’s me. Where are you?

(She hangs up)

(Cut to Meredith and Derek standing at the top of a stairway looking at the ground floor waiting room packed with people sitting)


DR. SHEPARD (his phone beeps): Which one do you think she is?

MEREDITH (looking at the people intently): Holden’s wife?

DR. SHEPARD: Yeah.

(The camera focuses in on three people. A woman holding a large handing bag looking down at the ground. A man on one side reading the paper and a teenage boy just sitting with his palms in his hands)

MEREDITH: It’s her.


(She starts walking down the stairs)

DR. SHEPARD: How do you know?

(Cut to Meredith walking a few steps up to the woman with the bag and who is actually pregnant)

MEREDITH: Mrs. McKee?

(The woman named Mrs. Cheryl Leonard stands up)

MRS. LEONARD: It’s Mrs. Leonard now.

(Cut to Holden’s patient room. The 3 people are all there now. The man is Mr. Hal Leonard and the teenage boy is Colby McKee. Holden & Cheryl’s son. Meredith and Dr. Shepard are telling them the news)

MRS. LEONARD (slightly upset): What do you mean wake him up?

DR. SHEPARD: Well over the years your husband’s brain has been slowly trying to heal itself. Now we’ve given him a course of amphetamine that should give his brain the push it needs to find consciousness.

COLBY (agitated): When? How long does it take?

DR. SHEPARD: If we’re right, your father should be awake in a few hours.

COLBY: Is he gonna realize what happened?

DR. SHEPARD: Most patients in this situation have no idea how much time has past.

MRS. LEONARD: Oh god.

COLBY: I’m gonna be sick.

(He rushes into the bathroom adjoined to the room and slams the door)

DR. SHEPARD: I know this is a difficult situation …

MRS. LEONARD (interrupts): I just got married. We’re having a baby in December. And Colby turns 17 on Thursday. (upset) Difficult? Dif, this is unimaginable! I can’t be here when he wakes up. He can’t see me like this or Colby. (she knocks on the bathroom door) Colby baby we’re leaving. (to Mr. Leonard) We’ll be in the car.

(Meredith moves to talk to Mrs. Leonard who has dragged her son out of the bathroom and towards the entrance of the room)

MEREDITH: Mrs. Leonard.

MRS. LEONARD (upset): Holden is gonna wake up and find out that we didn’t wait for him.

(She walks off. Camera switches to Mr. Leonard who also looks upset)

MR. LEONARD: It took her a long time to move on.

(He walks out of the room)

(Cut to Bailey scrubbing her hands at a sink in a hallway all scrubbed up. Dr. Kent comes up striding towards her looking peeved)


DR. KENT: What are you doing up here? Get down to the pit. We’re backed up.

DR. BAILEY: No can do sir. The Nazi has me on this surgery.

DR. KENT: We’ve got a line out the door for sutures. Everybody’s an amateur chef until they get a knife in their hands.

DR. BAILEY (shrugs, making her way towards an O.R): Knives can be tricky.

(Cut to the inside of the O.R. Bailey is getting gloves put on by the scrubs nurses. Richard is standing in there already scrubbed next to the patient lying on the operating table who has a very large knife sticking out of his back)

DR. BAILEY: Your wife know you’re working today?

RICHARD: I’m going home. I just wanted to watch a little bit.

DR. BAILEY: Yeah well don’t stay here to long. Could end up like him. (she looks pointedly the patient) Wife stabbed him. Said she didn’t like the way he was carving the turkey.

RICHARD: Ouch.

(Cut to Cristina opening the front door of the townhouse. Joe is at the front with a good looking Asian guy)

JOE: Happy Thanksgiving!

CRISTINA: Joe thank god!

JOE: Hey this is my boyfriend Walter.

(Walter raises his hand to say hi)

CRISTINA: Whatever. Tell me you brought liquor.

JOE (holds out pie): I brought pie. Pumpkin.

CRISTINA (disbelievingly): You’re a bartender!

JOE: Did you bring scalpels?

(Cristina motions her frustration and grabs the pie off Joe)

[EXT. WILDERNESS]

(Cut back to George with his family crouching down near a tree. George is using a tool to make a turkey bird noise)


MR. O’MALLEY (pokes George): Come on, pick a car.

GEORGE: I don’t wanna pick a car.

RONNY: He doesn’t know jack about cars.

GEORGE (mutters): I know plenty I just don’t wanna pick one.

(Jerry hears this and rolls his eyes)

MR. O’MALLEY: Georgie’s just tired. They working you too hard at the hospital? (to Ronny) You know he works 48 hour shifts?

RONNY: 48 hours and you enjoy it?

GEORGE: Yeah I enjoy it.

JERRY: Like what do you do?

GEORGE: You know medical stuff.

(Jerry rolls eyes again)

MR. O’MALLEY: Come on.

GEORGE (smiling): They’re not gonna get it.

MR. O’MALLEY: Make your brothers jealous. Tell them what it’s like to be a big time surgeon. Come on.

GEORGE (little more perked up): Okay. Last night this was pretty cool. This was a truncal vagotomy and we ah inflated this …

JERRY (interrupts): Wait this … what do you mean?

GEORGE: I helped a surgeon. Anyway we inflated this guy’s abdomen …

RONNY (interrupts): Woah wait you helped the surgeon?

GEORGE: I’m a surgical intern. The resident or the attending, they perform the surgery.

JERRY: So you don’t actually cut anybody open? I mean by yourself?

GEORGE (slightly defensive): No. Like the point of being of an intern is that you’re learning. We watch the surgeries and the attending asks us questions and we have to answer them. It’s not easy. I have to be on top of my game 100% of the time. It’s incredibly difficult.

JERRY: So you don’t actually do anything.

(George gives him a look to which Jerry raises his eyebrows)

GEORGE: Yes I do.

RONNY: You just stand there.

GEORGE (frustrated): No! I stand …

RONNY (interrupts): Watching while the real doctors work.

GEORGE: No! I uh! I’m a real doctor! What? Dad!

RONNY (interrupts): What? You just stand there, so you don’t do anything.

GEORGE: No! I didn’t … no you said I didn’t do anything!

JERRY (interrupts): Real doctors save lives Georgie. I mean if you’re just standing there …

GEORGE: Oh for god’s … !!!

(Jerry & Ronny break out into laughter. Mr. O’Malley whacks Ronny)

RONNY: What?

(George sits stiffly looking upset and starts making the turkey calls again)

GEORGE: I wanna go home.

MR. O’MALLEY: Just as soon as you shoot your turkey.

[INT. SEATTLE GRACE HOSPITAL, PATIENT ROOM]

(Cut to Meredith sitting on the floor of Holden McKee’s patient room. He is still unconscious. Alex comes to the open door and knocks on the inside wall)


ALEX: What are you doing here?

MEREDITH: Waiting for my patient to wake up.

ALEX: Why aren’t you at the Thanksgiving?

MEREDITH: Why aren’t you at Thanksgiving?

(Alex gives her a wry smile and enters the room. He sits down next to her groaning slightly and looks at Meredith)

MEREDITH: What?

ALEX: I tell you something, you tell me something.

(Meredith looks at him and closes her patient file that she was looking at)

MEREDITH: Okay. I feel like one of those people whose so freaking miserable they can’t be around normal people. Like I’ll infect the happy people. Like I’m some miserable diseased dirty ex-mistress. Your turn.

ALEX: I failed the medical boards. If I tell Izzie she’ll be nice about it and all supportive and optimistic. She might as well rip my nads off and turn them into earrings.

MEREDITH: Alex, you should go to Thanksgiving. I mean don’t tell her if you don’t want to, but you should go. Otherwise you’re just … me.

ALEX (nods slightly): A miserable diseased dirty ex-mistress.

(Meredith smiles and Alex whistles continuing to nod)

ALEX: It’s hot. (Meredith laughs) It’s really hot. I feel better already.

MEREDITH (still smiling): See?

(Alex gives her a reassuring pat, ruffles her hair and stands up)

ALEX: Happy Thanksgiving.

(He leaves the room. Meredith looks down and picks up her patient charts and starts heading out of the room)

HOLDEN: Hello?

(She stops walking immediately and turns to Holden’s bedside)

HOLDEN: Is somebody there? (Meredith walks up quickly to his bed) Somebody?

MEREDITH: Yes. (He looks at her) Somebody’s here.

(She takes one of his hands in hers)

(Cut back to a later time in the room. Meredith is still there. Dr. Shepard is there with 3 nurses looking over Holden)


DR. SHEPARD: Mr. McKee your muscles have suffered deterioration and your joints will be painful for a while which is to be expected. Now the fact that your communication skills are still intact is remarkable.

HOLDEN: Did you reach my wife yet? Is she coming? I mean have you told her? Or do you wait until she gets here because this is gonna be quite a shock.

(Dr. Shepard nods slightly)

HOLDEN (to Meredith): How long have I been out? (Meredith gives Derek a look) A year?

DR. SHEPARD (to the nurses & Meredith): Could you excuse us please?

(The nurse’s and Meredith start making their way out)

HOLDEN (calls out to Meredith): You tell me. (Meredith stops looking at Derek) Please. You found me. You tell me.

MEREDITH: I’m only an intern. I’ve never really done this before.

HOLDEN: Me either. You’ll do it quickly. Rip off the bandage.

DR. SHEPARD: Hmm. No anaesthesia.

HOLDEN: Exactly.

DR. SHEPARD (nods slightly): Hmm. I’ll be right outside if you need me.

(Derek glances at Meredith briefly before he walks out of the room)

HOLDEN (lets out a shaky breath): Truth time.

MEREDITH: Truth time.

(Camera pans out so you can’t hear what Meredith is saying but Holden all of sudden lets out a cry of shock)

(Cut to Meredith’s Townhouse kitchen. Izzie is chopping celery with a large knife on the kitchen island. Dr. Burke is standing beside her. The following scene is very reminiscent of the very first episode with George’s first surgery)

DR. BURKE: Hmm. You have to cut the celery into finer pieces Stevens.

IZZIE: Uh huh. (She cuts a few more) Like that?

DR. BURKE: That’ll do. Put them in with the onions.

(Izzie grabs the chopped pieces and places them with a bowl of chopped onions)

DR. BURKE: Now what should you be concerned about?

IZZIE: Um …

DR. BURKE: The turkey Stevens. I expect you to know that.

IZZIE: Right. I need to check the turkey to see if it’s cooking at the correct temperature.

(They head over to the oven)

DR. BURKE: And how do we do that?

IZZIE: Meat thermometer.

(Camera pans out a bit to show Joe, Walter and Cristina sitting at a table watching the whole cooking show)

JOE: 10 bucks says she dries out the turkey.

WALTER: 20 says she pulls it off.

CRISTINA: 75 says I don’t care.

(Camera pans back to Izzie & Burke. Izzie has opened the oven and pulled out the turkey in its tray out a bit)

DR. BURKE: Hmm. Okay Stevens, let’s see what you can do.

(Izzie puts in the meat thermometer)

DR. BURKE: Alright. More pressure. Turkey has a tough shell. Dig in.

(Izzie pushes the thermometer in further)

IZZIE: I’m in.

(Camera switches back to Joe, Walter & Cristina)

JOE: Damn she got in.

WALTER: Told you she was going to pull it off.

(Cristina looks extremely discomfited by the whole situation. Camera focuses back on Burke & Izzie)

DR. BURKE: Good, not bad. Now all you have to do is get the thermometer deep enough to get a temp. But be careful not too …

DR. BURKE & IZZIE (at the same time): Oh!

DR. BURKE: You hit the bone! The pan is filling with juice and you’re losing moisture. What do you do?

IZZIE (panicking): Uh … um

DR. BURKE: Think!

(Camera goes back to the others and Cristina grabs her stuff)

CRISTINA: That’s it. I’m outta here.

(She gets up and starts walking down the hallway to the front door. Burke runs after her. He stops her in the foyer)

DR. BURKE: Hey what’s the problem?

CRISTINA: You’re operating on a turkey and … and, and you’re making friends with my friends.

DR. BURKE: Sssh. You told me to be nice.

CRISTINA: Yeah, yeah be nice. You know I’m just gonna go to the store and ah get some liquor. Can I have the keys please? (Burke hands her the keys confused) I’ll be back.

(Cristina leaves the house. Camera goes back to Joe & Walter who look amazed)

IZZIE (calls out): Dr. Burke!

(Burke makes his way back to the kitchen)

DR. BURKE: Suction! Use the baster for suction!

[EXT. WILDERNESS]

(Cut to George who is still sitting with his family at the same tree waiting for a turkey to come by)


MR. O’MALLEY: GT 500 was a Shelby. He also made the viper, you know that?

GEORGE: Yes, we do know.

RONNY: The Shelby 500 is a good car.

JERRY: Yeah.

MR. O’MALLEY: And the other car he made is …

(He stops talking when he sees a turkey all of a sudden appear a few meters away. Jerry instantly lifts up his gun to shoot it but George grabs it stopping him)

GEORGE: Jerry, we came out here so I could shoot a turkey. Dad said we’re not leaving until I shoot a turkey. I am shooting this turkey!

(Jerry puts his gun down annoyed and George lifts up his rifle taking aim at the bird)

MR. O’MALLEY (whispers): You sure you got it? Squeeze …

RONNY (whispers to Jerry): Don’t worry about it. He’s not gonna do it. He’s gonna chicken out and you …

(All of sudden George fires his gun. Jerry & Ronny get shocked looks on their faces)

MR. O’MALLEY: Yahoo!

(They all stand up to look at the bird)

RONNY (stunned): He got it.

GEORGE: I got it?

MR. O’MALLEY (gleeful): You got it Georgie!

GEORGE (happy): Let’s go home!

[INT. SEATTLE GRACE HOSPITAL, MRI ROOM]

(Cut to Holden lying on the table for the MRI machine. Meredith is standing at his feet)


HOLDEN (teary-eyed): What’s he like? … My son?

MEREDITH: You know I didn’t really get a chance to speak with him. But he seemed nice. He’s ah tall like you and he’s got your eyes.

HOLDEN: That … that’s good.

(Meredith nods and looks back to the viewing room we’re Derek is standing with a MRI tech. He gives her a slight nod. She turns back to Holden)

MEREDITH: Holden, we’re ready to begin.

HOLDEN (scared): What does the MRI do?

MEREDITH: Just gives us a better picture of your brain really. You’re one for the books you know?

HOLDEN: That’s nice.

(Cut to the viewing room with Dr. Shepard and the MRI tech. Meredith comes to the door)

DR. SHEPARD: How’s he doing?

MEREDITH: As well as we could expect.

(Meredith walks into the room and they both look at the images of Holden’s brain being produced by the MRI)

MEREDITH: Damn it.

(Cut to the mezzanine floor of the hospital. Holden is lying on a hospital bed that’s been propped up. Dr. Shepard & Meredith are talking to him)

DR. SHEPARD: An epidural haematoma. When you fell out of your bed this morning you hit your temple, hard. CT didn’t catch it but, the MRI did.

HOLDEN: And you can fix it?

(Holden & Meredith make eye contact while Dr. Shepard speaks)

DR. SHEPARD: Won’t be easy. Sometimes it’s impossible to find the vessel and complications can rise but yes I can operate.

HOLDEN: But so there is risk?

DR. SHEPARD: Very large risk, yes.

HOLDEN: And what happens if you don’t operate?

DR. SHEPARD: Best case scenario is that the bleeding resolves itself. Or it can continue to bleed and cause the brain to swell.

HOLDEN: Which means what?

MEREDITH: Most likely, without the operation you’ll die.

HOLDEN: But the operation could kill me too, right?

DR. SHEPARD: There are equal risks both ways.

HOLDEN (to Meredith): What do I do? What would you do?

MEREDITH: I can’t answer this for you.

(Holden sighs sadly and closes his eyes)

[INT. MEREDITH’S TOWNHOUSE, THE KITCHEN]


(Dr. Burke & Izzie are preparing more food for the dinner at the island in the kitchen)

IZZIE: Could you hand me the spatula please?

(Izzie starts tossing some onions around that are chopped up in a pan. Burke places something on an oven tray and looks over Izzie’s shoulder)

DR. BURKE: You want the butter to melt, not to boil.

(Izzie stops with her onions and picks up a wooden spoon and starts mixing the butter in another pan)

IZZIE: Dr. Burke, how did you learn to cook like this?

(Burke starts mixing the onions next to Izzie)

DR. BURKE: My mother owns a restaurant in Alabama.

IZZIE: Seriously?

DR. BURKE: Seriously.

IZZIE: Does Cristina know that?

DR. BURKE: No. Actually she doesn’t.

IZZIE: She doesn’t ask a lot of personal questions. She’s kinda hard to get to know.

DR. BURKE (smiles): Yes, she is. … Karev didn’t show?

IZZIE: No he didn’t.

DR. BURKE: Is that okay?

IZZIE: No, it’s not.

(Joe comes up to the kitchen doorway holding an empty wine glass)

JOE: Do you know there’s absolutely no liquor in this house?

DR. BURKE: Ah yeah Cristina went to get some.

IZZIE: Over an hour ago. Where is she?

[INT. SEATTLE GRACE HOSPITAL, WAITING ROOM]

(A large black man who looks like he is about to choke stands up when he here’s his name called by Cristina who has a yellow gown over her clothes holding his chart)


CRISTINA: D.I Johnson?

MR. JOHNSON (difficulty speaking): Here.

CRISTINA: You swallowed a wishbone?

MR. JOHNSON (chokes): Yes.

(She starts walking down a hallway with Mr. Johnson following behind)

CRISTINA (smiling broadly): Excellent. We’ll have to take some films. Maybe you ruptured your esophagus, huh? That means surgery.

[EXT. WILDERNESS]

(George is packing up the Ute they obviously all drove down. He slams the back shut)


GEORGE: Car’s loaded!

(He turns to Jerry & Ronny who are sitting on the drinking coolers nearby)

GEORGE: Guys! Coolers! Come on. Get up, get up, get up!

(They get up and he grabs the coolers and places them in the back as well)

GEORGE: Dad, come on!

(Mr. O’Malley comes up to George holding the dead turkey wrapped up and places it in the back as well)

MR. O’MALLEY: Hold on Georgie. We’ve gotta blood you.

(He reaches his hand into the wrapped up turkey)

GEORGE: Oh no. No.

(Mr. O’Malley smears two blood finger streaks on both of George’s cheeks)

MR. O’MALLEY: Now there you go. Now you’re officially an O’Malley man.

JERRY & RONNY (yell together): O’Malley!

MR. O’MALLEY: I uh left my hat.

(Mr. O’Malley walks up a bit the road while Jerry & Ronny smother George in a hug)

JERRY & RONNY (yell): O’Malley!

GEORGE (laughs): Guys! Just get in the car.

RONNY: O’Malley!

JERRY: O’Malley!

RONNY: Come on, let’s celebrate for Georgie!

(They both draw up their guns to shoot)

GEORGE: That’s not the best idea guys. I’m serious, don’t!

(Ronny’s gun accidentally goes off. A large moan of pain is heard from Mr. O’Malley. Ronny looks stunned. Jerry looks up and is also shocked. George upset turns to Ronny)

GEORGE (yells): You shot Dad in the ass! Are you happy now?

(He storms off up to his father)

[INT. SEATTLE GRACE HOSPTIAL, TRAUMA ROOM]

(Mr. O’Malley is lying on a hospital gurney face down dressed in a hospital gown. Ronny & Jerry are also in there playing with the equipment. George walks in and is dismayed by the sight)


GEORGE: Guys! This is the trauma room, what are you doing?

(George puts on his gloves and gestures to Ronny who is holding a piece of hospital equipment)

GEORGE: Put it down. Dad I’m gonna inject you with something to numb the area.

MR. O’MALLEY: Ahhh ah I’m fine. I don’t need an
