Mere and her jolly band of interns get Melissa right into the OR and she walks the gang through what they have to do, which amounts to basically sucking out as much blood as they possibly can as fast as they can. Callie scrubs in but once inside she asks if Mere remembered that it was multicultural day at school. She's upset to have forgotten but what's really getting to her is that Mark was always so good about remembering all of those kinds of things. Mere can't reminisce much with her because she's yelling at Kate to go ahead and just start scooping out blood with her hands.
Back at Mayo, Parker walks back into the OR and he and Feeny trade barbs as Feeny announces that he knows Parker is just waiting to see him fail. Parker gives Cristina a quick look, assuming that she must have told him what was going on. But Feeny and Cristina are quickly brought back to the task at hand when alarms start to ring and blood starts spewing everywhere. Feeny's not too busy to admonish Cristina for swearing as they try to patch things up, though. Parker screams at him that they need to put Kate on bypass but Feeny insists he'll have it taken care of in just a moment. Exasperated, Parker yells that he's going to scrub in too.
From one overly bloody patient to another -- everyone is still frantically scooping and suctioning blood when Richard walks in to say that they found Melissa's parents and they are on their way. He hears Callie warn Meredith that they've already replaced Melissa's blood four times over (!) and suggests that they pack the wounds and let her body rest since she probably can't take much more. In case we hadn't yet gotten the similarities, he adds that she was crushed by, "two tons of twisted metal. That's a lot of trauma for the body." Mere retorts that she's fully aware of just how much trauma that is. The interns are all getting a little uncomfortable as Mere claims that she's going to fix the patient rather than just do damage control, and there might as well be a neon sign hanging from the ceiling with a flashing arrow pointing at Meredith that says OVERCOMPENSATING FOR DEAD SISTER. Richard finally tells her to stop and when she doesn't, orders everyone to take their hands off the patient. Everyone but Mere complies but when he calls her name again, she finally stops and tells the interns calmly to pack the patient up.
Once Katy's surgery is over Parker and Feeny retire to the scrub room to yell at each other; Feeny reminds Parker that the aneurysm could have blown at any moment no matter who was operating while Parker condescendingly says that he's only butting in at all because he's trying to help. When Feeny turns down this generous offer of assistance, Parker gets his panties in a bunch and orders Feeny to surrender his medical license, claiming he's a danger to patients. And when Feeny shockingly doesn't agree to that, Parker puts him on probation so that he'll have to sign off on every move Feeny makes. Feeny, finally out of retorts, walks out and smacks the door as he leaves, surely picturing Parker's smug face as he does so. Parker then turns to a silent Cristina and implores her to talk to Feeny.
