Of course, at the hospital the next morning, neither of their respective groups of friends believe that they are still nothing more than friends. Mere even tries to get Avery to pay up in a bet they had about whether or not Alex and Princess were doing the horizontal mambo.
Cristina gracefully advises Alex that they are one drink away from doing it; "Just stuff her turkey, you'll feel better." Alex argues with the room that he's not screwing his ex, Cristina, or taking advantage of interns, Jackson, and of course April walks in just in time for this last bit but manages to stay calm and just raise one eyebrow. She's inexplicably got three breakfast burritos in one hand with which she gestures as she passionately asks everyone what happened to actual romance. Everyone gapes at her like she's speaking another language with this "romance" malarkey while pregnant Mere can't take her eyes off the burritos and finally asks if she's going to eat all of them. April just turns and leaves.
It turns out those burritos were for her, Hot Paramedic Matthew, and his partner Nicole (who, to be fair, is gorgeous herself) though Nicole is standing outside their ambulance and eating while April and Matthew sit in the rig, talk, and smile shyly at each other. They don't actually have any work there on account of the ER being closed but its obvious Matthew is doing this to be with April and Nicole is being a VERY good sport about it. April feels bad and sticks her head out the window to ask if Nicole wants her seat back and Nicole gives her a kind of pointed, "Duh?" face and replies that she'll be fine. I wouldn't think that April is so naïve as to not realize this is a sort-of date, but it feels a little bit like that. Matthew asks if she's okay and she admits that it's tough trying to train as a trauma surgeon at a hospital that no longer has any traumas -- during her night shift she was reduced to hoping desperately that someone's appendix would burst. He then gets a call about an accident but since neither of them want to go, he invites April to ride along with them.
Alex has a woman named Rita from their potential new owners, Pegasus Horizons, following him around as promised, asking pictures and taking questions. He seems embarrassed about it and of course this is making him come off as king of rude, but Rita seems unfazed. When Stephanie comes up and hands Alex a chart she starts snapping pictures so Steph asks what is up; she's a little bit surprised to hear that they are considering putting Alex's face up on posters around the hospital.
