Alex is with Arizona, and he's checking out the abdomen of a teenager, Brad, while Brad's mom tells the doctors that he has had pain for months. Brad tells them it's bad in the morning, and his dad pipes up to point out that is because that is when he goes to school. Brad immediately says that he feels it at other times too, clearly used to this, but his dad retorts that yes, he feels it when he has a test or presentation. Ah, another candidate for Father of the Year, folks. What do you want to bet Brad really does have a problem and his dad will Learn A Lesson later? Brad's mom looks weary from dealing with this before, and as Alex defends Brad his dad just says not to encourage him since he's only faking symptoms to miss school. Alex tells Arizona in medspeak that everything seems normal, but she wants to make sure they cover everything and orders a CT. Dad then decides to outdo his behavior thus far and informs Brad that this is going to cost thousands of dollars and won't all be covered by insurance. Jeez, if this is in fact just nervous stomach, it's probably from having an asshole for a dad that manages to pin every little thing on his son. Mom just shakes her head at the scene, while the docs look on uncomfortably.
Cristina has heard about Avery's working with Teddy and runs after her to ask about it. She's rewarded with an unconvincing speech from Teddy about how this is a teaching hospital, so other people need to get a chance and so far Cristina has been on every one of her cases. Cristina tells her that she understands but tentatively asks about the following day -- both are tiptoeing around the massive elephant in the hospital -- and Teddy tells her that she doesn't know. She then gives the elephant the tiniest nod of recognition by saying that she just can't do this today. Unfortunately, she has no idea just how good she has it with Cristina being polite and deferential towards her, and only can see the unfortunate offering up of her boyfriend as a bribe.
Bailey and Meredith are back in Leslie's room, but when Bailey goes to inspect Leslie's incision site Leslie jumps a mile and practically slaps her hand away, refusing to let the doc touch her. Meredith tries to referee a bit but Leslie absolutely refuses to let Bailey touch her as she can remember Bailey's panicky screaming during surgery. I myself would have called it "yelling" as "screaming" has a sort of screechy, horror-movie connotation to it, but Leslie is sticking to it. Leslie's lip is quivering almost comically, which again takes me out of the actual horror of the situation. As Leslie shakes, alarms start to beep and Bailey notices that her incision site is bleeding through her gown, but when she tries to put an oxygen mask on Leslie she hits it away, screaming. Bailey stays calm this time and talks Meredith through re-dressing the wound while Leslie stares at her with dead, creepy eyes.
