“Let the Truth Sting” – Bad breath and Grey’s Anatomy – What’s the connection?

Monday, October 15th, 2007

A character in Grey’s Anatomy in danger of losing her speech tells her friend that she has bad breath, among other things. Food for thought: What would you say to your friends and family if you knew you could probably never speak again? Would you talk of halitosis? Pop a breath mint before you do.

The following is an excerpt from Episode 4.3 (Let the Truth Sting) recap from buddytv.com.

The Chief (James Pickens) has a patient named Connie who has come in to get a tumor removed from her tongue. Unfortunately, the cancer has spread to over 60 percent of her tongue, so Richard and McSteamy () are going to have to do something drastic. Her best bet is for McSteamy to do a micro-vascular free flap, but that would leave her without the ability to talk after the surgery. This is a problem because Connie is very chatty. She has two friends with her who are equally chatty. So, Richard thinks it might be better to do a nerve graft, connecting the nerves from her leg with the nerves on her tongue. It’s an extremely rare and risky procedure and neither the Chief nor McSteamy has ever done it. But they both want to prove that they are not too old to learn new tricks, so they go ahead with it. There’s a chance that Connie still might not be able to speak after the procedure, so George encourages her to tell her friends everything she’s been wanting to tell them but hasn’t had the guts to before she goes under. So, Connie tells one friend that her pants are too tight, and the other that she has bad breath and needs to update her ‘do, and a whole lot of other mean stuff that she’s been holding in.
