Hahn seems to have come around on doing Tapley's surgery: In his hospital room, she tells Richard that if Tapley dies she's going to tell everyone on earth that he forced her to do the surgery. She leaves and Tapley assures him he'll be fine, but Richard admits she's got "impeccable judgment. And this may be the dumbest thing I've ever done." Tapley then admits that another surgeon he knows would have done it, but just in case he didn't survive, he wanted to be in the OR with a good friend to say goodbye. Richard takes his hand and tells him that he's honored, but Tapley assures him he shouldn't be, and that he should have had a wife and kids so they could be there with him instead. Apparently, being single really is the worst thing that can happen to a person.
Sloane tracks Izzie down to talk about Ava and they fill each other in on what's going on. He tells her that she might have Acute Stress Disorder; that people who have had trauma and massive plastic surgery can look in the mirror and not recognize their body, which makes them unsure of who they are. He tells her to make sure she knows she isn't pregnant and to get a psych consult.
George runs in to give the Chief his Blackberry but Richard wants him to read out loud what he's got since he can't read the screen. George mumbles that it's a bad idea but does it anyway. The email to Adele goes: "Dear Adele, eat with me. The love train is leaving the station. You know you want to take a ride..." Mercifully, Richard cuts him off and says he'll write it himself.
Callie catches up to Mark to see if he really won't follow her into an on-call room. He asks her why she wants sex all the time, if it's replacing something... and she tells him she needs it to clear her head and opens the door for him. He tells her that they can talk but they can't have sex, and she stomps her foot and whines, "Whyyy? What are we gonna talk aboooouuuuut?" He wants to talk about threesomes. He tells her that Hahn certainly isn't a bad choice: "She brings that whole, 'We're naughty and we're getting sent to the principal's office' thing to it." He asks if she's really never thought about reaching across the operating table, ripping off her mask and grabbing her hair -- clearly, this is something to which he's devoted large portions of brain cells. She orders him to stop talking about Hahn and runs off.
