Callie watches Lexie work on Betty's arm during surgery and compliments her technique, asking where she learned it. Of course she learned that and a ton of other things from Mark, and Lexie can't help herself and quips that now he can teach all of those things to Reed. I think she's giving Mark a bit too much credit to think that hookup was anything more than a one-off, honestly, but the point is of course that she clearly still cares. Callie says her name gently and Lexie in fact protests just that, reminding herself and Callie that she's with Alex. Callie just tells her she has told herself the same things about Arizona, and that sometimes it works but then when she sees a man ask his long-lost love to move across the country she can only think how stupid it was of them not to stay together in the first place. She's more open with this kind of talk than Bailey and admits straight out that all she wants is for Arizona to change her mind.
Arizona, meanwhile, is in surgery with Alex and Derek, who is fixing up Hayley. She marvels that they can give this girl her life back just by covering a hole in her ear with a bone graft, and thinks life would be great if everything were that simple. Aw, see? They are missing each other at the very same time.
Amber is looking at her new hairline and comments that she had hoped there wouldn't be such a big scar, but Meredith tells her it will look better in a couple of weeks when it heals. Trish can't help herself and reminds her that her other surgery -- her hand -- is just bumps and bruises. Bolstered by Bailey's letting her cry earlier, Amber replies that she lost three fingers, which is not in fact just bumps and bruises. Trish is a little surprised and points out that she's alive, which is better than not, and Amber finally cracks. She doesn't yell, exactly, but she tells Trish about how she sometimes calls in sick to work because she can't drive, and instead sits in her car for hours, boiling over with anger. She wants to know if anything like this ever happens to Trish because she's afraid of coming off as weak and ungrateful, so now can they admit that each of them had horrible things happen to them and be real with one another? Meredith watches pointedly as these two best friends decide to be real with each other, and Trish admits that she can't watch romantic comedies because when a woman is flitting about with her only problem being that she can't meet Mr. Right, she wants to yell at them, "Well try having most of your face burned off, you stupid bitch!" Both girls are in tears but her outburst causes them to bust up laughing and they hug now that they are all real.
