Teddy finds Hunt and demands to know why he just took off while they were consulting with the patient; he shoots back that he thinks as her doctor she shouldn't be pushing for the option that Kim chose. Teddy argues back that she went through all of her options, and that Kim doesn't want to die a slow death hooked up to machines or so sedated she has no idea what is going on anyway. She thinks it's an act of mercy but he takes a totally different view, borrows Derek's soapbox, and tells her that she's killing her patient by writing the prescription. She just tells him she'll find someone else, and takes off down the hall. Hunt watches her go, and this triggers a flashback.
We see him and Teddy in Iraq, playing a game of soccer against two others. When Teddy scores she jumps onto Hunt's back and he swings her around while they taunt their opponents -- one of whom happens to be their superior officer, Dan. They're clearly all close, and it's pretty apparent that Teddy and Hunt are clooooooose. The game is interrupted when a helicopter arrives with wounded soldiers, and they all grab their gear to go get to work. Hunt hangs back and watches Teddy run to the tent hospital they have set up and we fade back to current day and see Teddy STILL walking down what must be the longest 20-foot corridor ever, given how long we've been looking at this shot.
Callie is working on Nick's broken leg, and she's got easy access as his broken bone is sticking right out. Mark is working on his frostbitten fingers, and Avery and Richard are puttering around checking him out as well. Nick's certainly gung-ho about the whole heli-skiing thing and doesn't seem the least bothered by his injuries -- he just wants to be healed by next year because he and the other guys are running with the bulls in Pamplona. The doctors all raise eyebrows, given his current physical state, but when Nick's friend Phil is rolled in Nick just calls to him to make sure they fix him up so he can run with the bulls. The third friend walks in behind the gurney -- he was about to jump when the avalanche started and so he stayed on the helicopter and avoided injury. Lexie appears for half a second to comment that they're active guys, and Phil bombasts that once a year they live like men. Alex points out that they nearly died like men, too. When they move Phil from the gurney to the bed, Hunt flashes back to Iraq again.
With the same movement, they transfer a guy with a gaping chest wound onto a bed and someone yells that this was a result of a car bomb that then turned into a firefight when they tried to evacuate. None of the bandages that Hunt needs are available so he improvises with a garbage bag and some duct tape over the wound while Teddy and Dan work on others. After Dan deems one guy too far gone, a soldier runs up to him to say that a sandstorm is coming and they need to move immediately. Dan orders Teddy to take her patient and a couple of others on the helicopter while he and Hunt take his guy in a vehicle. Hunt asks Teddy if she wants to switch, knowing she hates helicopters, but she assures him that she's okay and tells him she'll see him back there, wherever "there" might be.
