In the OR, Izzie is sweating rather profusely and a nurse mops her brow as she works next to Shepherd. They look up when someone pounds on the window to see Alex, who yells that it's 2:00 and holds up pills, water and a banana. Izzie heaves a sigh but Derek warns her not to fight in the OR, so she walks out. He watches through the window as Alex takes off her mask. She tells Alex she hates him but he tells her to shut up and then gives her the pills and some water, followed by some banana. She acts totally put out but does thank him after all, so he tells her again to shut up, puts her mask back on, and sends her back to work. Any sympathy I might have had for the character is gone with all this sighing and moaning about having to, I don't know, try to stay healthy.
Lexie finds Bailey and asks if Jodie has agreed to the surgery. Bailey tells her no, that the woman is going to go home and die, and echoes my earlier sentiment by wondering what Tom will be left with then. Lexie declares he needs surgery and then after some shocked questioning from Bailey explains her idea: While they don't normally operate if a bleed isn't active, his is really close and if they operate on him Jodie might let them operate on her at the same time. Mom and son could be together through surgery and recovery. She begins to babble about how it might be a terrible idea but Bailey cuts her off to tell her that actually, it's a really good idea. Lexie looks super proud to have done the right thing this time.
While Mark and Arizona work on the baby, Mark wonders how this could have happened. Ever generous, Arizona says the surgeon made a mistake but Cristina snarks that it's the wrong time to make a mistake with the merger happening. Mark is so sick of it, and says they all have to calm down. He cites hospital revenues actually going up, but Cristina kind of nastily points out that's excluding elective procedures, which went down. Mark calls her on referring to plastics and she just counters that no one is safe. Mark says he's safe, and Arizona finally puts an end to the bickering to remind them to think about the little baby growing up and being able to throw a ball, and wave goodbye.
