For one brief moment Owen tries to pretend Teddy isn't horrible but when her own husband says it, Owen readily agrees. He tells Derek to get ready to pitch but Derek calls on Lexie, now that he knows she actually once was a pitcher. When they go to pull Teddy she's actually surprised and insists she is just warming up, so apparently once she gets out of scrubs she turns brain dead. Henry is super cute as he teases her and so she eventually gives up the mound. Owen then calls time out and has the whole team gather around him so that he can tell them how proud he is and how they are incredible, teaching each other and learning from each other, and stepping up when they need to. Cristina thinks he might actually be drunk too and questions if he really thinks they have a shot. Incredulously he tells her there's no way because they are all horrible at softball but as a surgical team they are awesome and he's their proud leader. He then declares that now they'll at least go down fighting.
Lexie is getting ready on the mound when the sexy ophthalmologist starts trash talking about her horrible pitching arm. Without hesitation, Lexie turns around and beans her right in the boob. She then acts all wide-eyed and calls that she thought she was trying to steal second base, while the other doc doubles over in pain. I was hit once in the chesticles with a football and I will tell you right now that while I don't like this girl and am a giant Mark-Lexie shipper and found that on some level satisfying, I also doubled over, clutching my own chest at the mere sight of it. The benches clear and Chief McDougall yells at Owen about how that could have been her hand. Her hand? Oh yeah, she's a surgeon. As a woman, the thought of any other body part flew out of my head. McDougall claims he's calling the game but Owen realizes this can only happen if he forfeits, and McDougall has a fit complete with throwing his hat on the ground and stomping. Psst -- if you were really worried about your surgeons' hands, you probably shouldn't have put together a softball team in the first place. I'm just saying. The drunk ones in the outfield just cackle as they watch the madness unfold.
Meredith starts up her weekly VO wrap-up, telling us that surgeons might not always be winners, but they aren't lazy and they like to take chances. When the game ended it appeared to be a very sunny afternoon, so I guess everyone decided to sit on the bleachers together for hours until dark to give the scene more of a feeling of wrapping up the day. Cristina passes around the flask but April has decided to just start drinking tequila from the jug. Slowly people start peeling off; Henry thanks Owen for letting him be a (rather inconsequential) ringer and he and Teddy leave. Derek is kissing Mere, so I guess they are still happily married again. Lexie seems to be feeling some remorse over what she did and asks if Mark's girlfriend is going to be okay; Callie laughs that it's her boob and with Mark, she's in good hands. That doesn't really help so much, and Jackson just keeps drinking away the new realization that Lexie has remained hung up on her ex, who happens to be his mentor. He finally asks Lexie what she meant by it, and Lexie lamely clings to the excuse that she thought the girl was stealing a base. Jackson bluntly tells her that she didn't think that at all, and then walks away. Unfortunately for him, Lexie doesn't seem super troubled when he leaves.
