Elsewhere in the hospital, Bailey is confronting Webber about undermining her in front of her patient. Webber says she's sleep-deprived, just came back from maternity leave, and still isn't convinced she's on top of her game. Bailey can't believe it. "Every doctor in this hospital is sleep-deprived!" She thinks she's being punished. Webber tries to convince her this isn't a punishment, or any reflection on how highly he values her. Judging from the look on her face, Bailey is both unconvinced and also about to launch into one of her excellent tirades. Too bad she's interrupted by a nurse telling Webber that the man over there -- the nurse points to Chris -- is waiting to talk to him. Uh oh!
Cutie McVet is closing up when Mere bounces in the door. He says he thought she was knitting a sweater. Mere says she is. "But I'm also dating. You. If you still want to." McVet makes a face, and Mere says she should have called. McVet jumps up, all, "No, no, wait. Don't call. Never call. Always...show up." Aw. And yay. Mere says okay. McVet says he can't tonight, though -- he's got an errand to run. Mere smiles sweetly and says she runs errands. Cut to a stable. Ha! File that one under "Sentences I Never Expected To Type When I Took This Job." McVet says they can get dinner as soon as "she's" done giving birth. Mere, bemused, says, "You're birthing a horse? That was your errand. You're birthing a horse." McVet says he guesses he could have said that before she decided to come, but he was afraid that would scare her back to her knitting. He sees that the horse is getting anxious, and tells Mere she can stay outside the stall -- it can get a little messy in there. Mere: "Are you kidding? I wanna birth a horse!" McVet falls in love immediately, as he should.
Back at the hospital, Addie finds Webber to talk to him about Alex Karev and his bad, bad attitude. Webber has to break it to Addison that she's got way bigger problems than Alex Karev. "Mr. Ward has been speaking with our attorney regarding his wife's surgery. I read your chart, and I read the nurse's notes. Can you explain to me what kind of complication from a C-section leads to the severing of both Fallopian tubes?" Addie goes white as a sheet, and says nothing. Man. I'm glad she got to rattle off all her credentials earlier in this episode, because she's going to need that to hold onto after her career is ruined.
