Mere walks into Martha's room holding a large, colorful "Get Well Soon" poster but admits she's not sure if Martha wants it. Martha realizes that this means her students are actually there and Mere can't help but smile as she admits there are a whole lot of them in the lobby. She offers that she can tell them Martha can't have visitors, but Martha has her bring the super cute poster over so that she can take a look and mull it over.
In the ER, the crushed motorcycle dude is placed on the LODOX and all of the staff gathers to watch. Heather and Leah count the 13 seconds it takes to run the scan and then the x-ray is up, which shows a body that seems to be bendy in ways nature did not intend it to be. Leah exclaims that to see all of these breaks they normally would have to run at least 15 different scans. Everyone is beaming over the magical machine, and Owen conveniently just happens to turn to April and say that this was definitely worth waiting for. Of course, this hits home for her though she still looks tortured.
Derek and Smash are finally done with their surgery and they gear up to go talk to Mr. K. Derek gives Smash a pep talk and a reminder to stay calm and start with the good news first. They walk into the room and Smash starts out by telling Mr. K that his daughter is alive. But when he continues that they won't know more until she wakes up, Mr. K starts yelling again and tries to throttle Smash. Derek hollers at him and gets in the middle of the fight, practically tackling the guy. He screams that the girl is alive, and repeats it a number of times while Mr. K looks at him with a psychotic comic-book face, teeth bared and eyes bugging out. It would be funny if he weren't so genuinely scary. Derek gives him the rundown and adds that it's no good for anyone for him to fear what they don't even know yet. Hmm, that could apply to a situation Derek is in, too, couldn't it? Mr. K finally breaks down crying and wails over and over, despairing, that she always wore a helmet. He grabs Derek, who half-holds him while he sobs. Everyone is sad.
Martha of course couldn't resist the poster, and all of the kids gather in her room around her bed. They complain more about Mr. Arnold some more so she offers some suggestions of what they might make the situation a little bit better. Finally, after a pause and a long look at Meredith, she sucks it up and asks brightly what else they might do to help him if Mr. Arnold was their teacher for the rest of the year. The kids come up with ideas, but one of them realizes what's going on and tries to get her to say she'll come back. She's silent, and one girl starts to cry just a little. Martha takes her hand and asks what would happen if she didn't come back. The boy says that it would suck, and then quickly apologizes for use of the forbidden term. Martha doesn't get on him this time and instead agrees, and Mere leaves them as Martha keeps the mood bright and asks for more suggestions for Mr. Arnold.
