Back on the boat, Cristina wants Derek to quiz her on all the fishing equipment. She’s memorized it all as if it were medical equipment.

A competitive Lexie tries to force a male nurse to reinsert a tube into her patient’s adrenal gland in the hopes that she’ll win the competition and get to pull a gallbladder out of someone’s mouth. The male nurse tells her no. The nurse tells Lexie that he’s been at Seattle Grace for 12 years and she’s just a resident. Oh snap! The once again brunette Lexie isn’t going to take no for an answer so she enlists McSteamy to help her. McSteamy says he’ll talk to the nurse if Lexie agrees to have a drink with him. At first Lexie says no but guess what? They set a drink date for Joe’s bar later that night.
McSteamy talks to the nurse, the nurse still won’t re-insert the tube into the adrenal gland. But since McSteamy fulfilled his end of the bargain, the date is still on. Make sure you shave your legs Lexie; I have a feeling McSteamy wants more than a drink. Good thing the male nurse didn’t listen to you because by taking his advice her patient is healed and she wins the competition!
