While the Chief stews some more, Callie comes up to him and asks about the therapeutic hypothermia. She's done research and shows it to Richard, but has to admit that Derek already weighed in that it's too risky because Phil isn't as fit and he's older. That's the magic word, as Phil isn't much older than Richard, so he jumps on board with the idea. Nothing like doing barely-tested surgery out of pride! Seriously, #12 is looking extremely generous at this point. Callie assures him she can do the procedure and just needs his okay.
George demands to know what Lexie was doing and doesn't believe that telling Mark to shut up is helping him out, like Lexie claims. He then has a horrified moment when he thinks Lexie is sleeping with Mark, and Lexie pauses in her protestations to ask if George is jealous. He's jealous of her telling Mark to shut up, but George admits that Mark was right, and George is the hospital joke. He recounts failing his exam, getting married in Vegas, and cheating on his wife. Lexie starts to try and tell him the real reason Sloane was giving him shit, but George just tells her he can take care of himself, and leads her to heave a lovelorn sigh.
