For Grey's Anatomy (by Jimbo) ...
Alex Karev is sick of his work situation. He's sick of the OB who won't give him the time of day. He's sick of Stark who won't let Karev do anything. He's sick of Arizona who won't let him do anything, because Stark's her boss.
He finally decides to do some more general surgeries instead of pediatrics for a while just to find some more exciting work. When back to his way of snooping around and stealing patients, he gets assigned Teddy.
They have a distant, cordial relationship so far but know how to push each others' buttons. When Teddy's 'husband' comes in for a simple surgical procedure, Karev takes the case. When Teddy learns her hubby is in the hosiptal, she swoops in and snatches him from Alex.
Alex grudgingly just observes Teddy. He learns Teddy is actually the patients' husband and says she cannot be his doctor. Karev offers to take him. Teddy says it's fine and that she is the attending. She will decide who takes what patients. Karev storms out.
Later Teddy catches up with him and says he is never to run away angry in front of a patient. She lectures and lectures and finally says "That leaves the patient feeling ignored and scared that you are not worried about them. Do you know how unprofessional that is. If that wasn't my husband for a patient, then...." "BUT HE IS YOUR HUSBAND!!!!!" butts in Karev sick of being yelled at.
"He's your husband! I wanted to take the case, because it is your husband! It is unprofessional to be your husband's doctor. If you do a surgical procedure on him, then your emotions will get in the way of your scalpel." Teddy looks taken aback by Karev's strong reaction.
Alex continues... "I was married too. I had a wife that I loved. I know how you feel about your spouse." Teddy suddenly looks uneasy because she truthfully doesn't feel much for her husband.
"I know that protection you want to give them because you love them so much, that noone can take care of them as well as you. I ALSO know what it's like to be a doctor in love with a patient. It didn't happen to me. It happened to that ex-wife of mine. She fell in love with a patient and did everything in her power to protect him. You know what happened to that patient, the love of her life? He ended up dead. If you want the same to happen to you, be my guest. But don't you dare come to me with 'unprofessional'" Karev storms off again and Teddy is at a loss of words.
She catches up with him as they are leaving the building and apologizes and says she doesn't love her husband. She says she was only doing it to help the patient's insurance. She opens up to him about how she's single and lonely. They look at each other for a while and Karev just starts laughing.
"That's extreme patient care... marrying a patient for insurance" he jokes. They laugh and laugh until they suddenly get quiet and awkward. They're looking at each other very differently now... both in a different light.
They realize they are sharing an unexpected intimate moment, and they both walk away swiftly. They both realize a new romance has just started.
