Day breaks at the mountaintop McMansion, and Derek and Meredith are cuddling in bed; both are excited for the day though it turns out they are for totally different reasons. Derek is excited that it's the last day of Mere's first trimester and he thinks she'll go ahead and tell Cristina now. Mere was excited because the judge might have a decision in the plane crash case, until Derek came along and rained on her parade. He dismisses that idea easily and assures her that the case is going to go to trial and it will be months, and gets awfully frustrated when Mere insists on keeping an open mind about the outcome. He orders her to focus on the baby, relax, enjoy herself, and to tell Cristina she's pregnant. Yes, Derek, a frustrated order is what is sure to get Mere to finally relax. She VOs that the big day is here, test results are back, and that's good because then you can move on. "Whatever that means." All of the doctors here have particular strengths, but "moving on" isn't really one of them... for anybody.
Owen sneaks into Alex's house with two coffees and sees a slender brunette with curly hair crouched in front of one of the cupboards wearing only a t-shirt. He tiptoes up and then slides his hands around her waist, moving them north until he realizes that the chest in his hands does not belong to his ex-wife but in fact to one of his interns. Princess freaks out as he apologizes profusely and then runs out of the room.
Cristina, sitting in bed with her coffee, finds this to be the funniest thing she's ever heard. Owen's still mortified but he giggles as he crawls into bed next to her. So, the divorce is going well, it seems.
Once she's fully dressed, Princess recounts her humiliation to Alex because apparently they are friends now and she spends the night at the house after their platonic drinking sessions. She's (rightly) appalled that he has no glasses in the house -- nor, I'm guessing, does he have spoons and bowls since he's eating cereal from the box. She also has to sleep on the living room floor because he has no furniture, and she says she's not drinking with him again until he gets a couch. She leaves as he claims that she can just drink out of the faucet, and illustrates how it works. So Alex is now a homeowner who is too mature to sleep with interns, but other than that he's regressed to living like a frat boy.
At the hospital, Jackson walks up to Richard with a tin of cookies and a note from his mom that he's been ordered to read out loud to make sure Richard hears it. Richard is just embarrassed and tries to put Jackson off but Jackson forges ahead and reads that Catherine's in town for a surgery but not sure if Richard got any of her messages. She's worried about him, and wants to make sure he's okay. Richard is embarrassed, but tells Jackson to pass on that he's fine and then manages to politely decline the cookies.
