Cristina heads into surgery and Richard starts talking again about the ranking, sure it's a clerical error that he'll fix with a few phone calls. He and Mere should just talk to each other -- they can each ignore the other one while they each also get to prattle on and on and on ad nauseum about a single subject. Hahn announces her observations about different teaching styles, telling them Derek thinks out loud, Bailey is blunt and doesn't overteach and Sloane berates and humiliates people. Richard tells her to learn about teaching from her students, and then asks, "Yang?" To the horror of both of them, Hahn prompts her and Cristina stutters that she learns best by the Socratic Method -- being asked a lot of questions. Hahn, of course, laughs this off as ridiculously basic, but Cristina replies that some people don't do that and instead just tell you what to do. Hahn freaks out and demands to know if that's what Cristina thinks she does, but they're saved by their patient crashing. After a commercial break, Richard notices a tear and asks Cristina if she knows a particular stitch. She does, so he has her get to it.
In an almost (even more) girlish voice, Sarabeth tells her mute husband that she called the insurance and the credit card companies and found out that everything had been cancelled. Anna rounds the corner and sadly watches as Sarabeth begs to have Michael let her know what to do. Lexie apologizes that they need to take him to surgery and they wheel him away. Outside, Sarabeth runs into Alex and asks if there is someone she can call and admits in a tiny voice that she doesn't handle the money and doesn't know who to call. Alex sincerely tells her he'll talk to billing on her behalf.
