Back in the dungeon, Webber and Callie are enjoying a nice cup of coffee together on her basement bed. Webber is telling Callie he understands why she likes living in the hospital: she gets all the best trauma cases in the middle of the night, and he respects that, but also, he can't have it. Callie's all, "So I have to go, but you're allowed to live in your office?" Webber says he guesses he has to follow his own rules if he's throwing her out. They share a laugh, and then George busts in the door. "Okay, I'm jealous! I have a right to be jealous because I don't want other guys touching your panties!" Hee. George takes in the scene of his girlfriend and the chief of surgery all on the bed together, and storms out. "Great! Just great." Webber hands Callie her coffee mug and says she might want to clear that up. I'll say.
Mrs. Seabury gleefully returns from the bathroom and starts gathering up her things. Joe asks if she's heading out, and she replies with a huge grin, "Gotta get back to the hospital, Joe! Gotta go kick this cancer's ass." Aw. Alex made her want to live. That's quite the testament to his skills, all you naysayers.
When Alex walks back from the bathroom and goes to pay his tab, Bailey stops him and tries to apologize for what happened earlier in the day. Alex: "You were right. I shouldn't be getting physical with patients." He walks off with an evil grin.
Mere voice-overs, "The body is a slave to its impulses." Cristina goes back to the hospital to check on Burke and finds his Mama still there, still hovering over her little boy. She tells Cristina sourly that it's late, and Preston needs his sleep. Cristina takes a deep breath and says, "I'm sorry, Mrs. Burke. I was just coming by to see if either of you needed anything before I went home for the evening." Mama says they're fine, but there's a teeny tiny softening in her face. You can't fool us, Mama! MereVO: "But the thing that makes us human is what we can control." Cristina tells Burke good night, and walks out. She runs into Daddy Burke in the hallway, who gives her a little look and says, "Hang in there." Sniff.
