Ellis closes the door as Richard tries out his spine and yells, "What is wrong with you?" Instead of talking about what just happened, Ellis starts by ordering him to fire Bailey immediately. He's shocked, but she starts to cry as she says that Bailey made a fool of her. So Meredith was totally spot-on that the first thing Ellis is worried about is being embarrassed herself. As she cries about looking like a failure, Richard starts to comfort her, with just a hint of resignation in his voice. Ellis continues to wail about how stupid she was made to look in front of an audience while he dutifully assures her that like always, she made it work and the patient is fine. With a smile he adds that she can't control everything, even if she wants to. It's certainly not for lack of trying, though. Then, as a secondary though, Ellis asks if Mere is okay and then moans that she just wants her to be happy but doesn't know how to talk to her, blah blah blah bad mother woe is me blah. Richard assures her that he knows Ellis cares and that everything will be okay.
Owen catches up to Cristina in the hallway and thanks her for her help, but she realizes this is just another plea for silence and tells him point-blank that he needs to tell Callie that he needs help. He replies that she'll leave and he'll lose his kids since Callie is afraid he'll hurt one of them. Cristina simply asks, "Aren't you?" Callie then walks up with all the kids and when she notices his hand, he claims a junkie patient pushed him into a tray of instruments. And Callie believes him because she wants to. This is all ignoring, by the way, the fact that there were at least 20 people who saw what happened. There is no way that in this gossip mill of a hospital, that wouldn't get around to Callie, especially given that he's got a history of outbursts. He shouldn't be just trying to keep Cristina quiet, he should be paying off the whole ER. The little family starts to leave, and Owen smiles at Cristina but she just walks off.
There's not a ton of time to think about it because a man walks in carrying an unconscious Lexille, and he explains that she was just lying in the street. As the camera pulls back, we see that McSteamy is her knight in lavender dress shirt.
Mark keeps trying to help as they do compressions but Jackson hollers at him to go away, not impressed by Mark's assuring them that he is a doctor. They keep shocking her and once they finally get her heartbeat back, Mark finally sighs and relaxes. He then asks a nurse where he can find Dr. Shepherd, but she blandly asks him which one. That is the question, isn't it?
