Callie is checking in on Rob and his mangled shoulder, and finds out he didn't sleep well. But it wasn't on account of his shoulder. Instead Jen explains that she kept him up all night, afraid that her aneurysm would burst and she would die. She sounds a little bit sheepish but really, it sounds perfectly reasonable to me. It's unfortunate, then, that Alex walks in to introduce himself and explains that Mere and Derek had an emergency and her surgery is going to be pushed back. Rob is pretty appalled at the idea, and Alex has to ask who he is since he wasn't in on their whole story last week. Jen explains again that she ran him over with the car before she knew she had an aneurysm, and Callie gives Alex a look while Alex tries not to smile at the absurdity of the situation. Jen pleads to have her surgery ASAP while staying totally polite and utterly charming and cute. Callie pulls Alex aside to ask about the emergency and is stunned to hear that Addison is in the hospital.
We finally meet the girl who can send Hunt into an emotional tailspin -- her name is Beth and her father is Bernard from Lost! I guess he figured out some way off the island too. She's worried because he passed out while they were eating dinner, and he assures her heartily that he's fine. He then assures her that she should go to work (she's a 2nd grade teacher) and she wishes "Daddy" goodbye while Cristina shoots her a disgusted look. Between that, her profession and her little pink cardigan, she really is extra cutesy in a very annoying way. She leaves, and as soon as she's out the door Bernard drops his smile and tells the doctors he has colorectal cancer for which he's had polyps removed and radiation, and that Beth doesn't know and he wants to keep it that way. That's a healthy family dynamic right there. Richard says that Cristina will do a CT and asks where he's been treated, which Hunt answers as he walks through the door. If looks could kill, Hunt would be nothing but dust right now. He sheepishly stutters that he works here now, and saw that Bernard was in ... Bernard cuts him off to finish that he waited until Beth was gone to show his face. "That's just like you to face up to things like a man." Hunt just tells Bernard that Beth deserves to know about his cancer, but Bernard growls that Hunt lost any right to tell him what to do when he broke off his and Beth's engagement with a two-line email. If Cristina's eyebrows were raised any higher, they'd recede into her hairline.
