Bailey pops in to ask Arizona if she needs anything else and with bright eyes Arizona says no. She hopefully asks if Bailey wants to sit for a while but Bailey is done sitting and counters that if she had wanted to hold a child all day she would have stayed at home and held her own. She thinks she didn't do a single medical thing all day. Arizona gently asks if she's going to tell Tucker and Bailey is left at an uncharacteristic loss for words, and asks sadly what she would tell him? Arizona tells her that pediatrics is more than just cutting, and what Bailey did was heroic. "And you know it." Bailey still seems mildly terrified but with a hint of her strong self in her voice announces, "Maybe I'll tell him that." I am going to be so upset if this story goes where I fear it is going -- down the Shonda Rhimes Road of Broken Relationships: Because No One Can Really Be Happy!
It's time for Mere to wrap us up for the week: "To do our jobs, we have to believe defeat is not an option." Cristina is mopping Izzie's brow when Meredith comes out in what is actually a great dress for her -- a strapless mermaid-cut dress with silver accents. Mere smiles but when we cut back to her she's frowning as if waiting for feedback, which feels like a weird editing mistake. Cristina smiles, and Izzie takes off her oxygen mask to say that Mere is going to be a beautiful bride. Mere finally smiles for real, and when Cristina motions for her to turn around so they can see the back, she turns and does a swishy little dance like a happy little girl. The Chief walks by at that moment and watches her with his own smile -- clearly he does have a daughter of sorts, and that's Meredith. Mere: "That no matter how sick our patients get, there's hope for them."
