Bailey and Alex are about to start on Michael's surgery but Bailey pauses and tells him that she thinks the clock is wrong. Though it says 2:30, she's certain the time is 11:58 pm and has him change the clock so that it reflects the "official hospital time." Ha! You never doubt Bailey, Alex! You should know that! Once the clock has been changed, she takes the scalpel to begin the surgery.
Hunt is finishing up Cristina, who now is just gazing at him with a little smile. He smiles back and tells her she'd be good in the field. He tells her she should ditch the hospital and go for adventure, asking unbelievingly if Seattle Grace really gives her a high. With sincerity, she admits that it does. Richard walks in and after asking about how he's doing, admits that he called around about him. Just in case we weren't positive about his extraordinary level of badassery, Richard says he heard about Hunt making an operating table out of an exploded Humvee out in Iraq. Hunt responds that you have to be innovative on the battlefield, and Richard counters that you have to be innovative anywhere, and offers him a job. Say yes! I want to look at you each week! Cristina looks like she does, too. Hunt turns him down since he's due to go back and finish up in Iraq. Once Richard leaves, Hunt takes a moment and closes the blinds. He looks over at Cristina, who asks, "What?" "What" is him kissing the hell out of her. She pulls back a second to point out that she doesn't know him. "So?" He then opens the blinds and walks out, leaving her dumbstruck.
Bailey, Callie and Derek are gathered at a nurse's station, where Callie says it might have been the hypothermia treatment and Derek counters that it might have been his surgical skills. Mere comes up so that she can ask what's going on and they can happily report that Phil is wiggling his toes. Okay, so... Derek? Is taking credit for this?? Bailey then begs Derek to say something, though he doesn't want to. They giggle away and finally he announces, "We made a man walk." Derek?? Is taking credit for this??? Yes, I know he did the decompression surgery but then he fought tooth and nail to do nothing else and leave him paralyzed, and spent the evening condemning all of them for being idiots, and now he's casually hanging out, basking in the glow of their success? Shut up, Derek. Bailey and Callie head off happily, but Mere and Derek stay behind to watch Anna go in and visit her husband. She wakes him up with a kiss and his happiness at seeing her clearly shows that no one filled him in on the drama taking place in the next room while he was on ice.
