Outside, Meredith looks over the paperwork and asks George questions. We all know how badly he covers any sort of secret, and she asks what he's not telling her. He admits, "It's Cristina."
Addison asks Cristina if she notified the father as Bailey tries to keep her focused, and asks if there's anyone to call. Just then they realize the problem is that the pregnancy is in her Fallopian tube, and she's bleeding out.
Burke's surgery is over, and Richard tells him that he needs to perform a needle biopsy. Burke tries to brush him off so that he can check on Cristina (without admitting that's what he needs to do), and when the Chief doesn't let up, he admits that his intern collapsed during surgery. Richard just tells him to do it now, and when Burke says now is not the time, he puts his foot down. "I'm not in the mood for debate. You understand. You'll do it because I asked you to. Because I need you to." Burke sighs, and Richard finally says that it's for Ellis. Burke is confused, but follows him out as a nurse writes "Yang" onto the surgery schedule.
Izzie asks Addison if Cristina will be okay, and Addison replies by asking how attached she was to the pregnancy. Izzie just says that Cristina was a private person. Addison: "She's lost a lot of blood, but we'll take it from here." Bailey is sitting and holding Cristina's head in her hands, and when Addison suggests she find a surgery to jump in on, she replies, "I'm fine right here," with a tenderness that gives away just how important her interns are to her.
Derek scrubs out of his own surgery, and Meredith comes in to ask him if Alex can do the follow-up so that she can check on Cristina. Alex asks what's wrong, and before she can answer, Derek takes Meredith's shoulders as if to hold her until she shoots him a look that could cut glass. He drops his arms and apologizes, which she orders him to stop. "I'm so tired of you being sorry." He gets snippy and calls her "Dr. Grey," which she laughs at. It's got a lot less punch than when the girls whose hearts have each been stepped on use it. She asks him if he's afraid of others finding out about them. "Alex, do you care that I was the intern stupid enough to screw the married attending?" Alex doesn't, and Derek says okay. Meredith tells him it's not okay, as he has a wife, "who is not easy to hate. Who's annoyingly kind and painfully smart, and currently saving my friend's life." Like a lovesick puppy he calls her name, but she orders, "Stop talking to me like you're my boyfriend. Stop talking to me at all." She leaves, and Alex chuckles, "Dude, that was rough." It was also AWESOME. Derek's not put in his place nearly enough for the whole "Oops, you mean I never mentioned I was married?" thing.
