Bailey gives Rick the good news about his non-injuries; he's clearly in shock, and asks how that's even possible. Really springy shrubbery is my first guess. Bailey just says that the body is amazing, and sometimes things like these just happen, and she seems rather delighted at his good luck. Sally is in the room, still terrified at how close he came to dying, but Rick's near escape is sinking in and he feels like he can face anything now that he's faced death. Mere smiles at him and adds that it changes a person. Well, it changes a person until, for story reasons, it doesn't anymore, and the person spends the next bazillion episodes lamenting how they wished they'd changed more. Rick turns to Sally, clearly with Something Important to tell her, but in true television style she interrupts him to tell him not to worry, that she'll make sure and destroy the video of his fall so he never has to relive it. She runs out of the room to take care of that while he calls after her, crestfallen. But Cristina has started salivating, and tries to keep her cool while she asks after the video.
Surgery. There's a screen showing some veins, which looks suspiciously like the same shot that Derek was looking at when he was working on Norman last week. Hahn is teaching Izzie that a vein should be thought of like pasta -- pliable, but not too fragile. That's actually rather interesting; I didn't actually expect to learn a medical fact from this show. Richard comes in and Hahn immediately bristles, pointedly asking if he needs anything, and she clearly doesn't believe him when he says he's just checking to see how she's settling in. At that moment, she and Izzie see a blockage that they can't work around without opening him up. Extremely conveniently to the story, alarms go off, and from the way his vitals are going crazy, they deduce that he's allergic to the anesthesia. Izzie asks what options he then has for surgery, and the ensuing silence tells her that there's nothing.
