Once they are in the hallway, though, they put their heads together and cackle about how sly they are since no one suspects that they are sleeping together. And honestly, who would possibly guess that they are involved when they are whispering delightedly with their foreheads practically pressed together? Well, any remotely intuitive person, really, but in this case it's Leah who catches it and isn't fooled when they leap apart and start talking loudly about the history of the shunt. Truth be told, I'm shocked they've managed to keep their shunting secret for an entire month.
Derek walks in to a conference room to find Callie setting up a small net across the table. She thinks that after his last surgery they tried to get him back in the game too fast, so this time she wants to take baby steps. Derek tries to argue even before he knows what she has planned but she refuses to let him speak and reminds him that he is the patient and she the doctor. It turns out that the motion he would use in some particular surgery is similar to that of hitting a ping-pong ball, so she's going to have him play to see how he does. Oh, and the surgery usually takes about eight hours, so that's what he's going to be doing all day, with an unsuspecting Smash as his opponent.
Bailey meets a couple of ambulances in the bay and is introduced to her patients: a couple who have had an unfortunate stripper pole accident. The husband, Leonard, has a crush injury, but he's more worried about his wife Sheila. (Played by Beth Grant, who I think of as one of the townspeople in To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar as well as the lady who freaks out and gets blown up on the bus in Speed.) (Spoiler alert?) (Yes, my awesome taste in movies continues to be awesome.) (What?) From her cries we learn that she had a stripper pole installed in their bedroom as a surprise for their anniversary and poor Leonard was definitely surprised, especially as he merely wanted an iPad. I have no idea if Sheila's name is a wink to Sheila Kelley, who is widely credited with having started the stripper pole workout craze with her program, S Factor, but I like to think that it is.
