Jo is fiddling with her watch when Alex walks up and he can't help but needle her about how expensive it is. I assume it's supposed to be a Rolex? Sadly I am not at a point in my life where I can yet recognize them from a semi-distance so I'm not totally sure. And of course, after I got so sick of her being a sad sack last week and stripped her of her title, Alex this week has christened her "Princess" himself! Obviously this must be a shout-out to me and how much the writers appreciate my thoughtful moaning each week. Right? He sneers at her as he gives her supplies so that she can de-pact a kid's bowel while he's in surgery.
Smash is sadly disappointed when he lopes up to April like an excited puppy and she snaps at him as if he piddled on her shoes. She thinks he's faking his excitement and is in no mood for it. I assume she's grouchy both from her breakup as well as from the fact that today is "lumps and bumps" day: the hospital likes to schedule all of the mass and growth removal outpatient surgeries on one day to get them out of the way. She claims this is glorified pimple removal and, "A hillbilly with a pocketknife could do it." The waiting room is already wall-to-wall with just the morning's patients, and when Smash sees the crowd it finally dampens his great mood a little bit.
The next cardio patient is Mrs. Crossley, who is getting a pacemaker and then heading home. Her husband is deaf in one ear and seems generally cross about life, assuming everyone is arguing with him when he can't really hear that nothing of the sort is happening. When the docs leave the room Stephanie and Leah try to out-kiss Cristina's ass and Cristina can't help but revel in it. She turns and regards them both for a moment before awarding Stephanie the opportunity to scrub in while Leah monitors the other patients. Stephanie does a dance in Leah's face just in case she wasn't already bitter and dejected enough at the turn of events.
Heather walks into the ER and as she does, everything turns all romantic slo-mo. Meredusa finally yells at her and it snaps her back into real time; as the two of them stare at each other I realize that in a weird way they quite resemble each other and I'm curious if that will be played up as the season goes on. Mere shoos her away but she's given a purpose when two hunters run into the ER screaming for a doctor because one of them thinks he just killed Bigfoot.
This is intriguing enough that Richard, Callie, Bailey and Mere all run out after them to see if the mythical man-beast really was discovered and killed that day. The guy explains that he was hunting dear when he heard a scream but then when Bigfoot came running at him, he fired a warning shot and jumped in his truck. Bigfoot then ran into the road and the hunter accidently hit him. Speaking of, once they all gather around and wonder where Bigfoot is now, what appears to be a big pile of leaves and grossness starts yelling from the bed of said truck.
