Alex decides that the best way he can help his friends is to stalk the judge on their case, and that includes seeking him out when he's a truly captive audience during his chemo treatment. The judge is pleasant until he hears that Alex wants to talk about a case, and tries to get Alex to understand that he's not allowed to discuss it. Alex just persists and tells him that the parents are two doctors and the baby has a serious condition and shouldn't be with some joe schmoe foster family who can't properly deal with it. The judge starts yelling for a nurse, so Alex finally decides to leave but not before leaving the file with him and begging him to take a look. As he goes, the judge calls after him that attempting to influence a judge is a federal offense. Alex just ignores him and goes. He's got very good intentions but this execution was about as bad as it could be.
Derek must just be That Good because he successfully finished a never-done-before brain surgery and unexpectedly still had time to make it to the game to be a pinch hitter. He gets a hit, but overall the Seattle Grace Mercy West team isn't as good as Seattle Presbyterian. We know this because our team is in jeans and other assorted non-matching pants while the S.P. team has matching baseball pants for everyone. That, and Meredith gripes that the S.G.M.W. team is already down 8-0. They run to take their places on the field and Mere pulls out a flask so that she and Cristina can get their drink on while Cristina gleefully thinks of her bucket surgery list. Mere's upset there is no news about Zola but says that she might have cured diabetes, so there's that. Soft music starts up and Cristina tells her quietly that her mom would have been proud. Fortunately, after a beat the two start laughing uncontrollably at this maternal notion. It is somehow not a surprise that Teddy is actually a horrible pitcher. But that doesn't really matter when two outfielders are already drunk and Callie shows up and just joins in to make out with Arizona in the outfield. One of the opposing players then gets a hit that is headed right towards the drinkers, and Cristina and Meredith panic a little as they try to get into position. Before they can do anything, though, Bailey runs up behind and catches the ball. When Mere yells that she had it, Bailey sarcastically asks if she really did, "or were you going to let it fall to the ground again?" Meredith has had enough pussyfooting around and demands to know what her problem is. She theorizes that Bailey doesn't want her on the trial basically out of spite, and Bailey asks if she is drunk. I don't think she thought the answer was actually going to be yes; I think it was supposed to be a metaphorical, "Are you insane?" But Cristina cheerfully tells her that they both are. Mere and Bailey then begin yelling at each other in earnest, and when Richard sees he calls a time out and then trots out to the outfield to handle the mess.
