Sure enough, Jake Doe winds up needing a needle to the heart to drain fluids and Stephanie is in a complete panic that Smash wants to take care of it himself. She wants to call one of the docs but before she can do anything, Smash begins the procedure.
April arrives with the two bottles and plastic cups and while Arizona tells her she doesn't have to do this, April insists she doesn't mind and pours them drinks. Arizona finally admits that she can't stand the way people are staring at her, and when April tries to deny that it's happening Arizona basically laughs her off and points out that April is staring as much as anyone, and Arizona can tell just what she is thinking. April is curious what Arizona thinks that is, so Arizona finally says, "You know… Jesus!" April is completely exasperated that everyone thinks she can't empathize because she goes to church and insists that she can, all too well, with a "cheater." So she does still have conflicted feelings for Jackson, then. She realizes what she just said and apologizes, horrified that she called Arizona a cheater but Arizona sadly points out that it's true. Arizona then quietly adds that Lauren stared at her too, but in a way that felt good. When she asks April if she understands, April looks to be in almost physical pain because she knows this all too well. PSA: If you are painfully in love with one person, you probably shouldn't accept a proposal from another. Just a suggestion. A nugget for contemplation, if you will.
Owen wanders upstairs at the party where he finds Emma charming a group of donors with Owen's very own story, right down to his promise that he's got even more interesting ones that aren't appropriate for telling at this venue. Owen calls her on it and she admits that she's a doctor from Seattle Pres, and since her hospital won't take her advice to hold their own fundraising gala (is that the only way to get money in Seattle these days?) she decided to pop in and just borrow this one for a little while. Owen seems more charmed than annoyed, but then points out that he doesn't understand why she spent so much time talking to him if she was trying to get money. Oh, Owen. Have you really been out of the game that long? Emma reacts basically the same way I do and finally goes, "Look at you." Owen is shocked to his ginger roots that this cute discount-shoe-wearing lady might actually like him. Hmm, date other people, you say?
Alex makes his way back to the party, but just to sit at the bar and drink glumly while his girlfriend attempts to raise funds on his behalf. Cristina comes up and orders another whiskey soda, and when the bartender points out snidely that it's her fifth, she explains to Alex that she's not drinking but these are to ply the money out of Richie Rich. She's in her element and exclaims happily that this reminds her of when they would steal surgeries and play dirty as interns. Mere then walks up with a blue hospital hoodie zipped up over her gown to hide the spit-up that is now all over it. Cristina just shakes her head in pity that Mere is making the competition so easy. I feel like the old thrill of competition combined with Ms. Nine West is going to make a bored Cristina start to create some more competition of her own to spice things up -- we'll see if this instinct is correct or not as we move forward. (Dear Nine West: I totally wear and love your shoes. But I also don't have millions of dollars to fund a hospital. Love, Lauren.)
