Izzie goes to check on Dr. Singer. He is recovering nicely. He describes the difference as it being like someone turning on the lights. Izzie says he did so well in surgery that he can get home to Chehalis and back to teaching in no time. Dr. Singer has no intention of wasting his newfound mental faculties on those ingrate sex-crazed teenage alcoholics. He has no idea what he is going to do next, but thanks to her, much like the Scarecrow, he has a brain now and can give it a good think.
Cristina gloats to Meredith about her awesome cardio surgery. Cristina admits that Teddy might be a cardio god after all. Live sacrifices promptly at noon, please!
The Chief hands off his surgical charts to Bailey with the promise that they can go over them tomorrow. Just as the Chief walks away leaving Bailey with a stack of charts, Callie comes up to her for the latest installment of gossip about the Chief. Bailey tells her that the Chief is taking a break from surgery because he is exhausted and needs some time off. Bailey then has one of her rare personal moments and moans that now she doesn't have a work husband or a home husband. Callie offers herself as a replacement, but Bailey points out that she has Sloan already. Callie suggests Shepherd, but Bailey can't abide looking at that hair all day. You and me both, sister, you and me both. My roommate once dated a guy who had more hair products than me and my roommate combined. You can guess how that turned out, right? Yep, they soon realized their entire relationship was based on a mutual love of V05 Hot Oil treatments and when he wanted to switch to Prell, she dumped him because she was exclusively a Breck girl. Sad, really. We all saw it coming.
Outside the hospital Owen is waiting for Cristina, but is happy to see Teddy. She doesn't waste time chit chatting, but asks him about Cristina. He apologizes for not telling her earlier, but he wanted her to judge Cristina and her skills without any bias from him. She asks about his ex-girlfriend and he explains that he broke up with her a while back. Teddy keeps smiling when she says that she thought Owen would have called her when he broke up with the ex. She thought they had something. Owen looks surprised and Teddy looks really embarrassed. She didn't realize it was all in her head; she clearly made up a Bridges of Madison County story in her head, but now she can let it go. She bids him good night. He watches her leave until Cristina comes out and plants a big happy enthusiastic kiss on him and thanks her for her present. Pssst, Cristina! You might want to take that back, since she just made a play for your boyfriend. Cristina thinks Teddy is amazing, even if she does have birds on her scrub cap. Owen explains that Teddy's best friend loved birds and died in the second tower. That's when Teddy gave up her attending position at Columbia and joined the army. Even socially-inept Cristina realizes her foot is in her mouth. They walk silently while Cristina tries to tug it out.
