Finally, Owen decides to check his messages. The first is from Dr. Sheehan in Boise, double-checking what time his surgeons were supposed to arrive. Callie, meanwhile, puts on her new sexy knickers and crawls into bed, posing herself to look seductive and perfect when Arizona comes through the door. I'm sorry, but if you are going to do that, you have an inkling of when the person is getting home. Especially if air travel is involved. ESPECIALLY if surgery is involved. There is no way she'd just assume Arizona was going to walk in the door at an absolutely specific time without double-checking somehow. And another message from Dr. Sheehan starts to play, telling them there is still no word, so she's going to check with the airport and see if the weather held them up.
At a fancy restaurant, a waiter pours champagne for April and the others. (Richard's glass holds water.) He asks if there was any word from Mere or Cristina and Alex tells him that their plane was supposed to land an hour ago. And again, do you not then check to make sure that plane has landed before you start to order? It was conjoined twin surgery -- I mean, all surgeries can unexpectedly take longer than planned, but ESPECIALLY something so delicate and complicated as that. People, you did your own conjoined twin surgery just a few months ago and there were plenty of complications to go around! And then are we seriously supposed to believe that Dr. Sheehan of Boise was just like, "Oh well, those girls have lived together this long, I guess we'll just wait another day because Dr. Hunt isn't answering his phone." NO. This is RIDICULOUS. She or someone on her staff would have tried, oh, the general hospital number and asked to speak to someone else. Richard holds up his glass and the others quickly follow suit, and he tells them that each year he likes to tell the residents a secret that will help them get through all of their future challenges. After a moment, though, he decides that they should wait for Meredith and Cristina before he goes on, and they all put their glasses back down. At the hospital, Owen finally starts to pay attention and look worried when he hears Dr. Sheehan's third message admitting that she's starting to get concerned. I just cannot suspend my disbelief enough to think that they could go all day and into the night with no indication that something was incredibly wrong.
