A/N: So hi. The following songfic entails Izzie's feelings and reaction to Alex's cheating with Olivia, therefore the setting is episode 2.10. Enjoy, and please review!

Before He Cheats

Izzie opened the door the on-call room to find Alex on top of Olivia. Kissing Olivia. Izzie was so speechless, all she could manage was, "Come on. The quints are coming."

"I can't believe this," she said to herself later. "I literally cannot believe this."

Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleach blonde tramp,
and she's probably getting frisky...
right now, he's probably buying her some fruity little drink cause she can't shoot whiskey...

"You're better off without him," Meredith had said.

Am I really better off, Izzie asked, or are you just saying that?

She walked out of Seattle Grace Hospital that night with the intention of walking over to Joe's and downing some major tequila.

Right now, he's probably up behind her with a pool-stick, showing her how to shoot a combo...
And he don't know...

She stopped herself short when she passed Alex's Dodge Ram. Silver, and brand freakin' new.

"You know what?" she asked herself. "He does not get off that easily."


That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats...
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.


She found her house key in the bottom of her purse and, feeling her fury filling her, made a long scratch in the driver's side of Alex's truck. A tear actually fell from her eye when she reached his door.


Right now, she's probably up singing some
white-trash version of Shania karaoke.
Right now, she's probably saying "I'm drunk"
and he's a thinking that he's gonna get lucky,
Right now, he's probably dabbing on 3 dollars worth of that bathroom polo...
And he don't know...


When Izzie put away her key, intended damage done, she realized she still had a key to the truck. And she realized she wasn't done screwing Alex yet.


That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats,
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.

She found a small pocket knife in her purse and tore a hole in all his tires. As she did, she muttered to herself, "You wanna screw Olivia? Fine. Screw her. But I'll be here, freakin' screwing YOU!"


I might saved a little trouble for the next girl,
Cause the next time that he cheats...
Oh, you know it won't be on me!
Ohh... not on me...

She then sat down and let all her tears fall. Drowning in her tears, she cried out, "I hate you Alex Karev. I really HATE YOU!"


Cause I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats...
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...

She unlocked his door and sighed as she saw the unharmed leather seats, where she had made love to him so many times. She continued to cry as she took his key and carved her name into his seat.

"Remember me, Alex. Freakin' remember me."


Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.
Ohh... Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats...
Ohh... before he cheats...

As she sat in Joe's later that night with Meredith, George, and Cristina pelting questions at her, Izzie smiled when she drowned a shot.

"You okay, Izz?" Meredith asked.

She sighed and smiled sadly, "Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats."
