Grey's Anatomy: Episode 5.13 "Stairway to Heaven" Recap (Page 2/4)
The semi-comic relief portion of this very intense episode involves Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh). They very formally call each other Dr. Sloan and Dr. Grey, respectively, and flounce through the hallway into an on-call room. They make no effort to do the deed with any discretion, as the other interns observe, because their sex sounds are loud and porny, until the unthinkable happens. Mark screams in real, agonized pain. Uh oh, Little Grey broke Little Sloan! Lexie 911-pages Callie (Sara Ramirez) and stutters out an explanation that Mark is badly injured in a very bad way. Makes me think of Will Farrell's character in Austin Powers. (“I'm very badly injured!”) Callie doesn't believe her at first, but when she sees the panic in Lexie's eyes, they both rush over to Mark's room.

Callie and Major McHottie examine Mark's broken penis. It is indeed broken, and they need to operate on it. Alright, clearly I'm no medical expert, and being female, I'm also not exactly a penile physiology expert. But I didn't think there is an actual bone in the penis, is there? What exactly is broken here? Major McHottie will operate, but Mark doesn't want a "meatballer" like him to do it. Lexie pops her head in to see how he's doing, and he begs her not to stay and see him all broken like this. My, but he's nice to look at when he's not wearing a shirt, even if he's not up to the job, if you know what I mean!

In front of Lexie, the other interns speculate about who would be enough of a sex-crazed vixen to break a man like Sloan. Sick of hearing it, Lexie tells them to shut up. They are just about to figure out that it was Lexie, but then Sadie (Melissa George), knowing the truth, jumps in and takes the heat away from her. Later on, after the surgery, Lexie apologizes for breaking him and humiliating him. But she says that she is not going anywhere and, in fact, is going to climb into bed with him and stroke his hair. And then she does just that. Sadie is playing lookout out in the hallway.

Meanwhile, Cristina and Major McHottie are both at work now. He finds her and apologizes for showing up drunk and late. She's very cool about it and says everything's OK. She says that he doesn't have to talk about it, which is exactly the opposite thing normal people would tell him, but exactly the thing that she would say.

PDR Guy is fading fast, and Meredith gives him an out. She says that he can stop this at anytime, but he doesn't want to stop. Instead, he probes Meredith about her personal life, deducing that she and Derek are a couple.

Richard (James Pickens Jr.) instructs George (T.R. Knight) to see if there are any patients on life support who are O-positive or brain dead, and then cross-check them with Jackson to see if any of them match.

Derek, giddy as a schoolboy, asks Cristina for her opinion on the engagement ring. He also asks her to make up with Meredith already because when he proposes, she's going to need someone to freak out to. So true! And so understanding on Derek's part. I'm actually impressed. However, Cristina gives him the brush off.
