Callie, Arizona and Alex are all staring through the window at their patient -- a sullen-looking 13-year-old named Simmi who is listening to her headphones. Arizona and Alex think she's the devil incarnate, but Callie tells them to cut her a break, because she's just angry and scared after a double hip replacement. She then reminds them, merely for the sake of the viewing audience, that Simmi had surgery three days before and she needs to get up and moving immediately or she's at risk for blood clots and an overall crappy recovery. Of course she and Arizona begin squabbling again over the best way to make her do this, and Arizona petulantly asks Callie to show them the Bad Cop Way. Callie thinks a moment and then takes advantage of their seniority by ordering Alex to go in and do it for them.
Alana seeks out Owen when she hears that he turned away the contractors who had arrived to measure the ER. What, are they turning it into a game room? Is there really no hope that the hospital could recover financially and it would be open again one day? This, I suppose, is why I write recaps about a fictional hospital and don't run a real one -- the finances are beyond me. Owen just tells her he doesn't want workmen in the way while they are still treating patients and he doesn't give a rat's ass about her tight schedule. As he talks he gowns up and heads for the elevator and she follows him on to continue their conversation, though she seems a little nervous in there. Owen reminds her that in the Army, the guys on the front line save the most lives because they are closest to the patients at the moment of injury and therefore have the best chance to fix it; in this case the ER is on their front line. Alana finally asks where they are going and when she hears that they are meeting a medevac, she begins to stutter and tries to get herself excused. But it's too late, and the doors open and immediately the paramedics push in a gurney with a logger who got into an unfortunate tousle with a chainsaw -- he's got deep cuts all over and pretty much no nose left. While Alana tries to stay calm she notices that blood is starting to seep through a bandage on his neck and then after a moment, his carotid artery blows open all over her. She reaches out and plugs it, assuring Owen she's got it. "I was closest." How poetic.
