Smash is examining a patient when he comes across a presumably horrific growth on her ass, if his reaction is anything to go by. But he's learning, and he manages to sort of control his expression as he leans over and gives the woman the 'it's scary/we'll take good care' line. Since she has not yet seen whatever is on her backside she's a little bit confused, but it's better than offended. Smash is coming along. He then runs out into the hall to ask April a question about how to fast track results from the lab, but he can barely get the words out around the vomit that's threatening to escape his throat. April thinks he's being overly dramatic so goes into the room to see for herself; when she comes out she's also trying to swallow down bile. She gives him the info he needs while they both breathe deeply and try not to retch all over each other.
These interns have found a new hangout for themselves and while I appreciate the need to get outside for some air, it appears that they are sitting right by the dumpsters for the cafeteria and I get a little nauseated just imagining what it must smell like out there. Princess is soaking up the sun like she is Cristina while Stephanie bitches about Leah having become such a shark. Smash and Heather join them too and Princess starts to complain about her nickname in a very princessy tone of voice. She realizes she's not getting the support she expected and is indignant when she realizes they think she's prissy. She tries to spit to prove how down and dirty she is, but it's a prissy little spit. Heather has Mere's phone and it rings; she's determined to ignore it since she can't handle talking to another Shepherd sister but Smash looks at the screen and sees instead, "Bigfoot 911." Heather grabs the phone and her coat and sprints back inside. I do not understand why shows will do things like have the characters use iPhones -- things that many of us in the real world have -- but yet pretend they act differently. The phone just rang, but then when Smash looks at the screen, apparently there is a text? WE KNOW HOW PHONES WORK. I don't think it would have been any more difficult to write this short scene where Heather was using a phone like all the rest of us do in the real world. And this is a rant aimed at Hollywood in general, not just this show. If you're talking about something the majority of your viewers are familiar with, just let it work like it is supposed to.
Heather is so excited that someone actually needs her and is crushed when it turns out that Callie sent that call/text for Mere and forgot Mere had handed off her phone. The phone then rings and with Mere staring at her, Heather can't ignore it like she tried to when hanging out at the smelly oasis. She winds up talking to Lizzie about Zola and then hangs up to relay messages to Mere including questions about Christmas plans. Lizzie then calls back on Mere's phone while Kathleen seems to have found Heather's own cell number so that she can make these conversations even more confusing and comical. Heather is going back and forth between the phones when another call comes through on Mere's -- it's the doctor calling to confirm Mere's 8-week ultrasound. When Heather says this Callie raises an eyebrow so high it almost flies off of her face of its own accord while Mere orders Heather to hang up, so she cuts off every call on every phone for good measure.
