... but then she gets into the car with hot psychiatrist Dr. Perkins, who is back in Seattle. She thanks him for stopping and then he asks her what is next, is he taking her home? They have a long, sexy kiss, and she answers that she might be taking him home. But honestly, does this woman still have a JOB? But then again, who cares when you're caught between two hot men who think you're the cat's meow?
There's an adorable shot of Sofia, looking tiny and slumped in her carrier while the adults all watch her and count down the last few seconds of her hour. She passes the test, and there's much rejoicing and picture taking and general gaiety from everyone except for Callie, who looks more nervous by the second. No one really seems to notice, though. Cristina is complaining to Owen about the Teddy situation and asks if Teddy even mentions her; Owen tries to avoid answering by commenting on Sofia's incredible cuteness. Cristina just blandly answers, "Its small features and oversize eyes trigger a hormonal response from humans. It's autonomic." As the adults all coo and clap, she finishes, "It's what keeps us from eating them." Owen just gives a shaky smile in response.
The celebrations continue as Callie continues to turn to stone and when the others are ready to go, she finally yells at them to stop and to put the baby down and get her out of the carrier. She proceeds to have a full-blown panic attack about taking Sofia away from the protection of the hospital and what might happen to her out in the real world. She's especially nervous about getting into a car, given what happened the last time they rode in one. Bailey stops her as she panics and claws at the straps of Sofia's character, and calmly tells her that the world isn't safe, but that she doesn't feel that way because of the accident but rather just because she's a parent. She promises that it will pass, at least mostly. Her tone and the truth of her words finally calm Callie down. Mere says that some wounds never heal, and you have to just adjust to a new way of living.
Later that night, Meredith and Derek are in bed and Meredith is doing the guilty, wide-awake, stare-at-the-wall-while-your-partner-thinks-you're-happy-and-relaxed thing. Derek wishes that he could tell Richard the good news about Adele getting the medicine, and adds that he hates keeping it from him. And then an anvil CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING AND KILLED THEM BOTH OMG. Okay, fine, not really, but it might have for Derek's ridiculously too-on-the-nose comment that makes Mere feel that much guiltier. Her VO continues that things might have changed too much and some people never go back to who they were before.
