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.
Lexie storms in to where Callie is sorting supplies, and when Callie says she doesn't need any help Lexie takes to attacking a roll of gauze and ripping it apart. [Hospital supplies are expensive! I know from my last bill and here she is just wasting them! Ack! -- Angel] She wants to talk about Mark, while Callie just wants her to knock it off with the ripping, but Lexie doesn't even hear her and rants about how Mark won't talk to or look at her, and how even if they broke up they still have to work together. She tries to say she's going to become a plastic surgeon but Callie assures her awesomely that she's clearly not, and Lexie gives in pretty easily. She rants some more before telling Callie she doesn't know what to do, and Callie admits that Mark isn't being fair. When Lexie argues that a one night stand isn't a big deal, Callie agrees that it's true and then lets an unfortunate detail slip -- that Mark didn't just sleep with Addie once. Lexie is appalled and storms out while Callie curses herself.
