Dr. Bailey is very proud for setting up a 12-person Domino Surgery. Six people need kidneys, and they each brought aa donor with two good kidneys. Simultaneously, all six kidney transplants will occur so that no one backs out at the last minute. Like everyone other than Lexie with her photographic memory, it's absolutely impossible for me to keep track of who is giving a kidney to who. It's a lot like one of those logic games I used to play as a child:
-Mr. Patterson, who isn't the one with a purple hat, is donating his kidney to a woman with red hair.
-The woman whose husband is donating a kidney is receiving her kidney from a man.
-The recipient with the red hat is related to the donor giving his kidney to Mr. Johnson.
Upon learning of this Domino Surgery, the first thought Cristina has is that when it's over, she wants to keep one of the bad kidneys in a jar, which prompts all the other residents to want kidneys of their own.
One patient is played by Alias
star Carl Lumbly, and his son is donating a kidney, but only because his father is paying him $10,000. This is obviously wrong, and Alex and Izzie bring it to Dr. Bailey. She invokes the last time Izzie tried to steal an organ (when Izzie cut the LVAD wire, Burke got shot and Denny died).
However, this time she's willing to overlook it because the Domino Surgery will fall apart if anyone drops out. This particular case affects Alex more than anyone, because it brings back all his daddy issues. Alex is a poster child for dime store psychology: his daddy was never around, so now he acts out by treating women like crap. And according to Shonda Rhimes, women really love that, because they keep coming back for more. Maybe it's the black wifebeater.
