History[edit | edit source]

Samuel Linden[edit | edit source]

While trolling for cases in the ER, Alex found a chart for a patient who had been shot in the head. He looked around, wondering why the trauma team hadn't been called. Melanie pointed out the patient to him and Alex saw that he was sitting up and reading a magazine. ("Deny, Deny, Deny")

Megan Clover[edit | edit source]

When Megan came into the ER, Melanie gave Alex the chart and mentioned that it was her fourth visit in three months, suspecting abuse. ("Sometimes a Fantasy")

Rebecca's Return[edit | edit source]

When Rebecca Pope came back to Seattle looking for Alex, Melanie informed him he had a request for him. ("Haunt You Every Day")

ER Patients[edit | edit source]

Lucas and Reilly Nash[edit | edit source]

When Lucas and Reilly Nash were in a train crash together, Melanie informed Jackson and Lexie that because the OR was so swamped, they split a trauma room and put both kids in there. ("Slow Night, So Long")

Sexting in the OR[edit | edit source]

Melanie was in surgery with Callie and Cristina, who had been sexting with Owen all day. When Cristina's phone kept on making sounds, Callie told Melanie to read the message out loud. Cristina, who knew it would be a sexual message, told her not to. While Callie kept on trying to get Melanie to read the message, she eventually obeyed to Cristina and didn't read it. ("Poker Face")

Helping April[edit | edit source]
