Once surgery is over, Cristina goes to find her husband in his not-office they flirt a bit and then get right down to business; Owen promises to be quick so that Cristina can go check on her patient. They disappear behind the table so all that can be seen is his work and a half-eaten ginger maple scone. We hear zippers unzipping but then Richard walks in, and Owen's head and then Cristina's head appear from down below. She pops up while yanking up her pants and runs out of the room, just letting Owen know he should keep his phone on. Once she's gone, Richard can only exclaim, "In the conference room??" He warns Owen to act like a Chief, exclaims over the locale once more, and then leaves, shaking his head. Seriously, I have no idea how the conference room became such a popular venue this season.
Derek is not happy to learn that Lexie still hasn't found a particular article he asked her for two days before. Isn't she the Lexipedia? I'm surprised she didn't read it once and now have it memorized. Regardless, she wants to show him the butterfly tumor scan. Derek isn't interested because of its being known as inoperable, but Lexie tells him that the woman just had a baby and this is a very sad story, so she thought maybe he could do a consult. Even a bleeding heart like me thinks she did a crappy job selling this, so a hardass like Derek certainly isn't going to be swayed. He tells her to remind the patient that this is inoperable, and then orders her to find the article ASAP.
