Leah is on Cristina's service and she walks out of a patient's room to report that the Big Brother Doctor is arguing with her about what medicine to give a patient and it's gotten so bad it's freaking the patient out. Cristina thinks about this a minute and then walks in to an empty room, looks at the camera, and commands, "Open the pod bay doors, HAL." I would have only liked that more if she'd called the camera "Mother." It turns out that Big Brother Doctor is actually named Bob, and when Cristina tells him to be a silent observer and not argue with her choices, he cites some trial results at her. She mocks him for having time to read off in his cozy pod or wherever he actually lives and then starts to argue about the very same trial, which she's actually familiar with. But she's cut off when Leah reports they have a trauma on the way in. Cristina turns back to Bob and orders, "Just make sure my idiot interns don't screw up."
April's first victim is Dr. Jeff in cardio, but since he already got her email with it's scary, all-caps subject line he has no interest in hearing it. She falls back on what she's comfortable with and tries to cite figures to him but he cuts her off to talk about how amazing the TED conference is. He figures that hearing speakers talk about innovation is much more useful in trying to keep the hospital open than scrimping and saving from the overall budget; he then leaves the room while she's still struggling for coherent words.
