Henry's family heads in to the ICU to visit them, and Cristina turns from her paperwork to watch them. I know this is supposed to be Cristina's moment of personal crisis, but I'm just relieved that Henry is alive.
When George walks in to the locker room, all of the interns stare after him. He turns to demand what's up, and someone says with awe, "We heard you delivered a baby today!" Lexie adds, "On your very first day as an intern," with enough emphasis to get through to George, but not so much that it sounds strange to the others. They all begin to ask him what it was like, including my favorite question, "Did your head just explode with the amazingness?" He smiles, and with one more reminder from Lexie that this is his first day, he turns his frown upside down and begins to answer questions, explaining a procedure and basking in his accomplishment. I would just love it if it turns out that Lexie is there to give each of these guys a good smack upside the head for some perspective.
There's a shot of someone carrying a plastic bag of something in a dark hall, and for a moment, it's a little too much like a horror movie set-up. We see Cristina sitting on a bed against the window, and Alex joins her, carrying a gigantic bag of change which he got from his patient's stomach. When she can't muster up any emotion ever a disgusting medical find, he knows something is wrong, and sits next to her. After a quiet moment, he tells her, "I miss Rebecca." It's what she's needed, and after a moment she quietly adds, "I miss Burke." In the only way he knows how to comfort someone, Alex hands over the bag. "Want some money?" It's an awesomely quiet and touching moment for the two unlikely bedfellows. (As it were.)
Mere begins her VO. "Change." Get it? Get it? It was a bag of change? Hardy har har. "We don't like it, we fear it." Bailey leaves the hospital looking amazing in a white coat, and passes Callie sitting dejectedly on a bench. After a moment she demands to know if Bailey wants to humiliate her some more. "Because I get it. I suck at my job, I suck as a wife, I suck all the way around." Bailey doesn't bite, just replies, "Hope tomorrow's better." Lexie needs to turn up as the Honesty Sprite and tell Callie to get back to being an awesome, confident doctor, and to not beat herself up for marrying into a hellaciously conceived love triangle. Then maybe we get Awesome Callie back, too.
