Alex is pretty confused but once they are out of the room Callie explains that the other doctor is going to give them a 6-week recovery window and that they'll come right back to her, begging. Oh Callie, you ARE awesome but don't try to make these weirdos your cure for feeling abandoned by Arizona. (Oh, and by the way? Yes she left you, but you were a complete and utter jerk to her and it's not all her fault, mmkay?) She then tells Alex to keep her 2 pm slot open since she knows she'll be replacing Ron's hip.
Continuing the trend of all employees of Seattle Grace Mercy West being really ridiculously good-looking, we meet Eli (played by easy-on-the-eyes Daniel Sunjata) who is another of those characters that everybody knows but we have never met before. Lexie's in a tizzy because he didn't send a patient's fluid sample to the lab even though she asked him an hour earlier, but we learn that Eli's a not only hot, but nice, and he was letting the patient sleep since he hadn't slept the night before. Jackson then walks by with a little old lady on his arm and brags about how soon she's up after surgery, though April joins Lexie and says there's no proof that getting someone up and going helps at all. They compare protocols until April brags that when she was little, she also wanted a pony, so she worked really hard and then got one. It pushes Lexie's buttons just like she meant it to, and Lexie goes back to Eli and orders him to get the sample.
A nurse is pushing Henry down the hall, presumably back to his room post-proposal, but conveniently just drops him off at the nurses' station and walks away. It's never explained why he was left there, but it makes it really convenient for him and Teddy to have a conversation. She asks him about the proposal but it turns out not to have gone well, but Henry admits that while he liked her okay, he was more interested in marrying her awesome health insurance since he capped out his own three operations previously. Teddy asks to look at his chart and is surprised to see he has scarypotentiallyfatal disease, and has been in the hospital a huge amount of the past three years. Webber is his doctor but he's discharging Henry that day on account of his not having any money left to pay, but Teddy is appalled since he needs the care, and she promises to see what she can do. He's grateful but tells her sadly that he's sure that he can't afford her fee, whatever it is.
