Meredith and Derek's patient, Sylvia, was giving "special attention under the table" to her husband, Kyle, when she had a shock through her body. Her husband panicked and jammed a fork in her neck. It turns out that she has been diagnosed with a brain aneurism which every surgeon has said was inoperable.
An ambulance arrives and Miranda gives an unwilling Cristina her baby to look after. George tells Dr. Torrez that he called her but hung up every time. They deal with a young hockey player who has dislocated his finger badly. Despite this, he wants to play his game that afternoon. Meredith removes the fork from Sylvia as she and Kyle talk about going to Paris. Meredith and Kyle convince her to have an MRI with Derek.
Alex tells Denny that he and Izzie are dating. Cristina struggles to look after the baby. Sylvia tells Meredith that she is okay with her prognosis because it woke her marriage up.
As Derek looks at the large aneurism, Addison tells him about Mr. Gibson thinking she looks like Catherine Deneuve. All Derek says is - isn't she blonde? Izzie and Denny play scrabble. He asks if she is going out with Alex, she says they are not together. Suddenly, Denny starts having trouble breathing.
Later, Burke tells Denny that he's running out of time. Burke wants to put a machine in his heart until he gets a transplant, but it means he will be stuck in hospital until he gets a new heart. Izzie pages Alex and yells at him for telling Denny about them. Alex says that she is Denny's doctor and he will probably die soon. She storms out.
After being bandaged, the hockey player says he needs to play because college scouts are going to be at the game. Addison has lunch with Mr. Gibson who can't stop staring at her beauty. At another table Cristina, the baby, Izzie and George have lunch. Meredith arrives so George goes and sits with Torrez. Alex arrives so Izzie leaves.

Derek suggests a risky surgery to Sylvia that has only being performed a dozen times. She says no, she wants to go to Europe. Later, Kyle tells Derek that he stopped noticing his wife and now she is sick she's all he can see.
As Cristina tries to get the baby to eat, George picks him up and he stops crying. Torrez comes over and tells him that the ball is in his court. Sylvia tells Derek that her marriage is the best it's been in years so she doesn't want to go back to normal. He convinces her to have surgery.
Denny tells Izzie that he is so tired as she tries to convince him to do the surgery. He says he hates hospitals but she says they need more time. Finally, he agrees to do it and she says she will be there every day.
