Callie wakes up from a nap, finally with lotion on her pox, and finds Mark sitting next to her bed. He explains that he had them as a kid, and then climbs into bed with her since she's obviously unhappy. He asks her about LA and he says that Addison did nick an artery after all, but she fixed it and Sloan and the baby are fine. It feels sort of like he rushes through all of that though so that he can admit that he slept with Addison. Callie's not thrilled to know this and when Mark asks if he should tell Lexie she assures him that he absolutely should not. It's good he can't see her face as he goes on about how Lexie is such a good person. He's surprised at her advice but she holds firm on the keeping it to himself. She then moans in discomfort and so he crawls over her so that he's spooning her, and he begins to rub his forearm over her clothed arm and his cheek on her shoulder, pointing out that this won't leave any scarring. Callie appears to be happier than she's ever been in her life.
Alex goes down to the waiting room and tells an amazed Jeff that they saved Aaron's lung. Jeff is, like Alex, happy but there's an undercurrent of something else in his tone when he asks what is next. Alex warns him that it will be a long recovery but that Aaron will be fine, and Jeff finally asks him if it makes him horrible to be a bit disappointed since losing a lung would have made Aaron to live like everyone else and he'd have to do all the things he finds demeaning. Jeff goes on to say that what is really demeaning is loving a man and taking care of everything for him, including his humidifiers, which clearly Aaron cares about more than he actually cares about Jeff. Alex tells him, not unkindly, that they have a ton of nurses to care for Aaron and that Jeff could leave right now. But Jeff sadly replies that he loves him and adds that Alex should hear him sing. Alex says that no one sings that well, but Jeff says he does. I say go see him in concert, then, but find yourself a man who doesn't treat you like a doormat.
