April runs after Owen and Callie with a bottle of congratulatory scotch for him from Larry Jennings. She's about to run and put it in his office but remembers to tell Callie that she has to push her surgery a day so that she can teach a skills lab. Callie is appalled and neither she nor Owen is impressed when they find out that she also has to assist Alex because she can't convince anyone else (even an intern, it seems) to do it. Owen brings up a variation of an old chestnut: Don't try to get them to listen to you, just order them to do it. Has he met the other residents, by the way? He's married to the Queen of Not Listening so you think he might understand. He adds that leadership isn't about making friends.
After April leaves, Callie congratulates him on acting, "chiefy." But then he has a much less "chiefy" moment when Bailey walks up and demands her call schedule, essentially putting him is play by reminding him how 1. He's not like Richard and 2. He's not yet done what he told her he would do. Her general attitude is that she has already judged him and he has been found severely wanting. He can only stammer nervously and once she saunters away, Callie points out that this was in fact, "way less chiefy." Owen asks her what he did but Callie assures him that since Bailey was Richard's right-hand man, she'd treat any replacement like this. But she does ask an important question: Leadership might not be about making friends, but does he really want Bailey as an enemy?
When Cristina discovers that her patient just has appendicitis she walks out to Teddy and gripes that she's going to send the woman down to general surgery. Teddy gets all wide-eyed and innocently asks why Cristina doesn't do the appendectomy herself. Cristina gives her a litany of reasons: not a cardio procedure, not a fifth year procedure, etc. We (and Teddy) have heard the likes of this before but Teddy opines that since the patient needs her heart monitored and will have to have an open surgery, this is definitely something Cristina wouldn't want a moron to do. She basically orders Cristina to take the procedure while happily tossing her own words back at her from just that morning -- she loves the basics and fundamentals! Cristina has to eat her words and judging by the look on her face, they taste like bile.
