- Izzie’s, back-home
- hockey-playin’ boyfriend Hank
- guest of honor & reason for the party Izzie organized at Meredith’s
- Shake Your Groove Thing, S1E5, April 24, 2005
[later at Meredith’s, Izzie is absent from the party since she’s been in surgery whilst the party raged on]
Meredith (Meredith, George and Cristina are drinking and playing cards): Why do we want to be surgeons anyway?
George: Surgery is a very serious business. (Cristina burps loudly. She has two cards stuck to her face) Full House.
Cristina (laughs): Royal flush. Get naked. Baby boy! (Cristina throws down her cards. George reluctantly begins to take off his shirt and drunkenly falls over) Sexy! You’re so sexy!
Meredith (holding a bottle of tequila): Surgery is stupid. It’s stupid. It’s stupid!
Cristina (taking the bottle from Meredith; Cristina is also drunk): Give me that, you’re drunk.
Meredith: I’m not driving. I’m not on call. I’m in my own house. My life is crap. And it’s my party and I’ll get drunk if I want to.
Hank (appearing in the doorway): Is, um, Izzie Stevens…?
Cristina: Oh, you must be Hank. (She laughs and stands up) He’s very large and hockey-like. No, Izzie’s not here right now. (Cristina leaves the room)
George: You and Izzie will give birth to very tall, blond people. Kinda like Barbies.
Hank: Izzie said she was going to be at home, she didn’t say there was gonna be a party.
Meredith: Which pisses both of us off! Would you like some tequila? It helps.
Hank: When do you think she’s gonna get here?
Meredith: Don’t know. But we’re low on ice, Hank.
Hank: I’m serious.
Meredith: So am I. We’re interns, Hank. Hospital owns us. It’s what we do (Hank shakes his head, smiles and leaves).
Meredith: Nice to meet ya.
[the episode closes with Hank waiting for Izzie as she’s coming out of Seattle Grace Hospital. In their discussion, they have a disagreement in which he then turns and walks away, never to be seen or spoken of again. Which is too bad, cuz Jonathan Scarfe is great in everything and would have been good on Grey’s, even if only to pop in every now & then]
