Out in the hall Derek tells Alex that in a clinical trial things are a little bit different, so he can "paint a rosier picture" (i.e. charm the pants off of them with luscious hair and a disarming grin while sticking only to the positives) when consulting with them. Alex doesn't want to give false hope but Derek paints a bit of a rosier picture himself and says that they didn't give Rose any false hope. Instead, if she thinks her husband has a better chance of getting better, she'll be a better caregiver and that in turn could possibly lead to the procedure being more successful.
Richard finds Bailey in the cafeteria and though she protests that this is her milkshake break (and apparently a Twitter break as she's clicking around on her Blackberry) he lays into her for broadcasting her surgeries. She thinks it's not a big deal and assures him that the patients have to sign a big release form before they go under saying that it's okay. I'm a little confused about how the hospital lawyers could have put together a Twitter-Surgery Release and not consulted the Chief of Surgery about it, but maybe Bailey is also a legal genius and was able to do it herself. The woman is totally awesome, we don't know. She assures Richard that if the patient codes she stops tweeting but argues that it's a great way for residents the world over to ask questions and learn about how surgical decisions are made. We've already well established that I am an old lady and a fuddy-duddy but I can't help but think Richard has a valid point about this potentially turning into a nasty lawsuit. However, the interwebs have informed me that live-tweeting surgery has already happened in the real world, so I'm going to have to just go with it and get with this modern tekmology hoo-ha. Bailey thinks Richard just doesn't understand it and he tries to argue that he does, but finally she gives him "Bailey eyes" long enough that he concedes he doesn't, but promises to look into it and in the meantime, she's not to do any OR tweeting.
