Richard is in his office, fighting with someone on the phone to try and get them to consider Meredith for a job. But his efforts obviously fail, and his mood isn't helped when Alex walks in as soon as he hangs up the phone. Alex tells Richard that Meredith can't just have any job, she needs this job. He then offers to talk to the Board and suggests maybe he was wrong about what he saw or that he lied. Richard sees what he's doing and softens, telling Alex he can't let him say that. Alex spits back that he can, but Richard just replies sadly that what happened isn't on Alex. Alex, though, believes it's entirely on him, and he then leaves to answer a page.
Jackson finally located Jerry, and Mark looks at his sutures and tells Jerry they look great. Jackson is beaming but once the guys are (totally not, but supposedly) out of Jerry's earshot Mark tells him the job is better but not good. Jackson is surprised that Mark told Jerry it looked great, then, but Mark points out that Jerry's son is in surgery so he needs a little bit of good news -- especially now that he's going to have a scar for the rest of his life. Eh, take it from me, scars add character. Mark sends Jackson to go check on Nicky's surgery, but Jackson gets a page and goes to answer it instead.
It turns out that Bailey paged all of the fifth years, and April is not totally unrealistic with her worry that they are all about to get fired. The four of them fight as they make their way down the hall and fall into line behind Bailey, who starts going from bed to bed reading everyone's charts. None of the residents have any idea what is going on, especially when Bailey gets to Susannah's room and seems to find what she was looking for. She tells Callie this could be a Gunther. Callie's surprised but kind of excited about whatever a Gunther might be; though she also seems skeptical that this group of misfits can handle it. Bailey just tells her that they need it.
