Arizona finds Bailey and asks if she is busy, but Bailey tells her that depends. "You have any more dying children you want me to become over-attached to before they expire?" But no, this time Arizona actually has something uplifting -- an 8-year-old with neuroblastoma, and she's certain he's going to live. "So scrub in with me and see the joy!" But before Bailey can answer, Richard asks to borrow her for a moment.
Once he has her, he asks her who Santa Claus is. No, not, "An old white man who lives at the North Pole and enters people's homes inappropriately," as she guesses. Richard himself is Santa Claus, and he opens the door to show a giant robot, which moves its many arms and says, "All systems ready." What I want to know is how did he time it so that they could walk in and have it know to ask the question just at that moment? Regardless, Bailey is stunned and can't believe that Richard got them a Da Vinci surgical robot when she had just about left general surgery. He asks her if she wants to take it for a spin, knowing full well what her reaction will be. Bailey declares, "Santa!" and giggles like a schoolgirl as an answer.
Mark finds Lexie at one of the nurses' stations and tells Lexie that with the upcoming McNuptials, Derek and Mere probably won't want them staying in the attic, so he wants to look for a condo. Derek walks up as Lexie gushes about how perfect it is for him to finally have a place of his own. Mark tells her he wants her to come with, but humiliatingly she excitedly tells him she'd love to go see it with him. She leaves, and Derek clears his throat; when Mark asks what he heard, Derek asks, "You mean the part where you asked her to move in with you or the part where she shot you down? I was here for both." He then tells Mark that it's way too early for the two to move in, and adds that Mark doesn't have to do everything Derek does. Wow, that was an arrogant statement even for the King of the Egomaniacs himself, Derek. Mark tells him that it's not about Derek, he's thinking about his own future and about how life is short -- look at Izzie. Derek tells him not to worry about Izzie, since he's got a plan. Well, if Derek has a plan everything will be fine and will be done without a hair budging out of its glorious place.
