The doctors of Grey's Anatomy are not immune to getting sick themselves.
During Thursday's episode, when a young patient sneezes on Arizona, she suspects she's going to get sick. But she's actually spreading the bug throughout the hospital, which comes at the most inopportune time for many doctors. Jackson is the first doctor to drop, but others fall one by one, including Derek on the day of an important presentation, and Leah, the first of the interns to succumb, making her the loser of the group's bet.
When Shane believes he's beginning to fall ill, he enlists Stephanie to help with the trial patients because he can't get them sick or Cristina might not win the Harper Avery Award. While Shane doesn't get sick, Arizona definitely does, as she predicted.
Meanwhile, Alex is forced to work with a visiting peds surgeon from a private practice nicknamed Dr. Butthole, who ends up offering him a job. With the deadline for his student loans approaching, Alex realizes that working for a private practice could really pay off. Speaking of new positions, Jo realizes that her anger best serves her in ortho, where she can get out her frustrations through breaking bones.
