He runs into a room and there are a lot of quick cuts so that we know for sure he's on edge. (They hyperventilating might not have been enough.) Cristina runs in to find out what just happened, and he tries to send her out of the room, saying he doesn't want this and can't do this now. I suspect the first "this" is the blonde and the second "this" is Cristina. She learned something that day, though, and grabs him in a hug from behind. It's a little like she almost jumps on his back because he's so much taller than she is. He tries to shake her off but she holds tight and explains how he's going to try to resist but eventually his pulse rate will slow and he'll breathe more easily. He does, and then he starts to sob.
In another Stacy surgery, Bailey apologizes to Dixon for her outburst. Dixon agrees that it wasn't appropriate, but she's come to expect that from pediatric surgeons. Wha... What? What a fantastically unexpected twist! It does seem to be a genuine surprise to Bailey, who counters that she's not a pediatric surgeon. Dixon lists all of the evidence, as is her way: "You touch the child whenever you speak to her, you explain conditions to the child and not just the parents and you react to the patient as if it was your own child, and you break protocol which is inappropriate except in the case of pediatric surgery where protocols are constantly evolving." It's funny transcribing any of Dixon's lines because there's so much punctuation missing, which is how she delivers them. But yet I find that when Meredith is doing voice over, I have exactly the same problem and she's supposed to be delivering them in a casual speaking voice. Well, maybe just weird to me since I type it out every week but I tell you--Meredith/Ellen might want to work on where she places her emphasis during her delivery. Dixon says emphatically, "You are NOT a general surgeon. You are a pediatric surgeon." Arizona has been there watching and her eyes over her surgical mask seem to agree.
Meredith sees Derek leaving for the night and tries to get him to go to dinner, which he declines in about the most awkward, un-smooth manner ever. She calls him on it, and points out that he's been acting weird ever since her baby comment earlier. She claims to be glad it happened, though, because if he doesn't want her babies with her crappy DNA, he should just say so. Derek gazes at her and assures her, "Meredith, I want your crappy babies!" Lord, there he is actually being cute again! What is going on? Mere is very happily surprised and asks, "You do?" "All of them!" he answers and then kisses her. But he still makes a lame excuse and leaves, which leaves her kind of stunned.
