Derek is gazing down from the bridge when Bailey comes to report that Leslie is out of surgery, and that all went well and Meredith did a good job. He's glad, but is more concerned about the lawyer and Bailey reports that he's still hanging around, "drooling." She then asks if this was a tough first day, and when he says yes she advises him gently that most of the time one can make a lawsuit go away by simply apologizing. She reminds him that people want to feel heard and respected (and his brand of patronizing and demanding doesn't really accomplish that) and that if Richard were there the first thing he would do would be apologize as soon as Leslie was out of recovery. Derek smiles at her, seeming to take it to heart.
Cristina runs after Teddy, who has just gotten out of surgery, and before she can say anything Teddy rips into her about not answering her page. Cristina apologizes but Teddy, still clearly with some pent-up nervousness from the surgery, tells her what procedure they had and says that she thought that she could rely on Cristina to act professionally. Cristina was both excited and dismayed to hear what she missed but before she can reply, Hunt comes up and asks what is going on. Cristina cuts in and apologizes sincerely but Hunt immediately jumps to her defense and says that he detained her for a "trauma thing." Teddy clearly knows that nothing was being traumatized, maybe other than Cristina's burn, and asks incredulously if now Hunt finally has something to say to her. She then tells him to forget it and leaves, and then Cristina turns and glares at him as well, demanding to know what he's trying to do to her. She cuts off whatever answer he might have, and leaves him totally baffled by women in general.
After surgery, Brad's mom is aghast to learn that her heart's son ruptured. Her husband is clearly on the way to a heart attack of his own because he is one of those people who is always mad about something and blaming everyone around him for whatever that might be. Though he was the biggest skeptic of all, he demands to know how the doctors didn't find this earlier, and Arizona calmly explains that it showed up as abdominal pain, which is extremely rare and almost impossible to diagnose. She then points out happily that the important thing is that Brad is fine, but his dad blows up at the very idea that they would call him hooked up to tubes in the ICU "fine." Alex's every button has been pushed, and he can't keep quiet any more -- he explodes and asked if the dad didn't hear about Brad's heart rupturing. I'm sorry to say that my buttons were being pushed just as hard and I would have reacted just the same way. Arizona tries to stop the torrent but Alex hollers that if Dad had gotten his way, they would have been at home when this happened and Brad would be dead, and how much school would he be missing then? Arizona finally cuts in and demands angrily that Alex follow her, now. On the plus side, Brad's dad is finally quiet and while his wife looks stern, she doesn't look particularly upset about what just happened.
