Teddy and Jackson have joined Mere at Lila's bedside as she has a ruptured diaphragm and needs surgery. Teddy asks Jackson what they should do and he gives an answer while Lila bats her eyelashes at him, but when Teddy calls on Meredith she has a better way of proceeding and earns the right to scrub in. Jackson is pissed, but his ego can at least be a bit soothed by Lila asking if he could wait by her bedside while she's there. Teddy cracks that she and every other woman in the hospital would like that, and then takes off. Lila asks Mere if she's ever gotten to make out with "that" and Mere tells her she's married, so of course given the theme of the episode Lila asks her if she has kids. Mere's smile becomes a wee bit forced as she says that they are thinking about it.
Outside, the object of Lila's lust asks Teddy if she needs him to scrub in too, but she turns around and schools him that the question should have been, "May I," like he actually wants to scrub in. He stutters that he does want to, but it doesn't ring true and Teddy pointedly tells him she has all the help she needs. Fed up, he calls after her as she walks away and decides to try another, more sexy approach. He starts talking in a low voice, saying he knows he's been off his game but that he needs her to give him another chance... all the while he's stepping closer to her with a sweet little smile, and he assures her that he wants to scrub in. She finally smiles back and tells him okay, rather flustered, but as she walks away the spell breaks and a WTF? look crosses her face instead as she seems to realize she just got worked by the hot resident with bad handwriting.
April and Lexie are going over Eleanor's results -- everything is negative so Lexie suggests another test, but when April asks if she's sure Lexie gets totally defensive and says she is, but April outranks her, so... seriously, this Lexie with a martyr complex from her stay in the psych ward is a giant pain in the ass. April's confused and agrees to do the test, then changes the topic to more domestic issues, and asks what Lexie thinks about a chore wheel? Lexie is steamed at the idea that April might be moving in permanently and April suddenly worries that it's not okay and asks if she should talk to Meredith. Well, yes, she should, and she also should know that already, but Lexie is totally just being a jerk at this point. She says it's up to April if she talks to Mere or not, but warns her that she will hate the idea of a chore wheel.
