Back at the trailer, Alex crawls onto the bed next to Izzie, who is staring at the ceiling. VO: "Because all the worrying, and all the making of plans for things that could or could not happen, it only makes things worse." She tells Alex that for a few hours she forgot she was sick and that George was dead. Alex reminds her, gently but firmly, that George is dead and she has cancer. He plays the part of husband really well as he tells her that he wants her to do what she loves, and that she has a great future ahead of her, but she has to take care of herself, take her meds, eat and pace herself because he can't be her nurse. He's both kind but totally spot-on and it's one of the more mature moments we've seen of him. She pulls his arm around her, and they spoon.
"So walk your dog. Or take a nap. Just, whatever you do, stop worrying." Hunt, Cristina, Mark, Lexie, Derek and Meredith are all on a baseball diamond, and while Cristina tries to leave and go back to the hospital she's in street clothes so clearly she was convinced at some point to take a breather. That, or they held her down and dressed her, but I don't really see that. Derek tells them that they are not going back; they are going to play baseball and drink beer. Lexie doesn't think she can right after her friends all got fired, and Cristina tries to go, but Hunt puts a batting helmet on her head and while she protests, has a pitching machine fire a ball over the plate. I love the idea that one of them just had this lying around so that they could go out and do some batting practice right after work. Seriously? Cristina is pissed at the ball that just flew past but he yells at her to stop thinking about what's going to happen, and focus on what is in front of her. He sends another pitch flying and Cristina smacks the hell out of it -- everyone starts screaming excitedly and Lexie bounds up to take a turn. "Because the only cure for paranoia is to be. Here. Just as you are."
