Elsewhere, Cristina corners Owen as asks him the $50,000 question: does he really believe what he's saying? That Pegasus is the path for a brighter tomorrow? He starts to equivocate, but she tells him it's just them right now. Just the two of them. He finally admits that he doesn't believe it. It's a bitter pill, he says, and they just have to swallow it, but honestly, he's not even sure if the sale will make them better or worse. But it's their only shot. "What if it's not?" Cristina asks. "What if it's not all on you?" He cuts her off and says it IS all on him. "I put you all on that plane!" That's the crux of it, isn't it? He gets a call from Cahill: the sale is going down TODAY. He's so relieved that it's almost over. Meanwhile, Cristina knows there's a ticking clock now.
Elsewhere, Meredith and Derek are planning a very silly operation in order to get their hands on the financial statements. He brings Meredith in to meet the board members, and she knocks a thermos of water onto their papers, and there's a scramble to clean up.
Arizona and Bailey are breaking the news to AJ's father that the genome mapping wasn't approved. Which leaves them with the risky surgical option that no one's happy about. The dad asks if that's their only choice now, and Arizona says it is, but Bailey's like, "No, it's not." She says his other option is to check AJ out of Seattle Grace and go looking for another hospital that will give him the care he needs. "He won't get that here," she says, her voice wavering. This is kind of a moment. All the doctors are having this moment this week, at least the ones contemplating the sale, but Bailey IS Seattle Grace in many ways, and to watch her lose faith all at once like this is heartbreaking. And the significance is not lost on Arizona either. "Leave Seattle Grace and go someplace else, fast," she tells him. Miranda Bailey just broke up with Seattle Grace.
After the break, Arizona asks Bailey WTF that was all about, but Bailey holds firm. She starts spinning out ideas about other places she could go -- maybe find a hospital in Los Angeles where she could be with Ben, although her ex-husband surely wouldn't let her take Tuck out of the state, but maybe they can work something out, and ... Arizona finally stops her. "You're not going anywhere," she says, but oh, Bailey is. "It makes me feel small. I have to make myself smaller to work here." She doesn't recognize this place anymore, "or the people." She doesn't want to hang around long enough that she doesn't recognize herself. Arizona looks glum, than glances to her left at yet another defaced Derek Shepherd head. Not the face you want to see when you're going through an existential crisis.
