At Seattle Grace, Callie emerges from a curtained enclosure around a patient's bed and finds Cristina and the two Mamas standing there. Callie gives a friendly greeting, and Cristina gives her a very pained "hello" in return. Callie brushes off the oddness and asks Cristina if there's some orthopedic medical work she needs help with. Cristina mutters something under her breath, and when Callie asks her to repeat it, she screws up her courage and, with some difficulty, says "bridesmaid." She continues, "My mother and Burke's mother have been talking on the phone. And now they are here, with me." Mama Burke: "Cristina led us to believe you were friends." Callie bursts out laughing, but once she catches the look in Cristina's eyes she tells them, "Okay, I guess." Mama Burke says that it's settled then. Mama Yang moves in on Callie -- it looks like she's going for a hug, but we quickly see that she's wrapping a tape measure around Callie to get her measurements. As Callie realizes what just happened, Cristina slowly backs away. Callie: "Are you actually asking me to be... ?" Cristina, very quickly: "One of my bridesmaids? Yes." They exchange silent threats and apologies over the shoulders of Mama Yang.
And it wouldn't be an episode of Grey's Anatomy if it didn't have a scene in which a woman inappropriately begs a man for something that should be her due. This time, it's Meredith. She walks up to Derek and makes a little small talk before telling him, "When I drowned, it was different for you than it was for me." Well, yes, but that's because you were the one that drowned. That's a very different experience from standing on dry land. Mere continues: "Something happened to me, and I really don't know how to explain it without sounding like... I just, I feel different. I want to be better, at everything, and I want to let you in. I swear." Derek: "Did you practice that?" She tells him that she had a whole routine worked out with hand gestures, but she decided to keep it simple and leave out the choreography. Meredith: "Just now is not the time to give up on me, okay, is what I'm saying." Derek: "Okay." But he doesn't look totally okay as she walks away.
We get some California lifestyle porn to bring us back to Addison. You know, yoga and tai chi and surfing. A receptionist answers the phone at the Oceanside Wellness Group. Hey, it's Piz! I've always thought this show needed a little bit of emo hair, and here it is. As he talks on the phone, Piz stares at the shapely ass of a doctor who's walking away from him. As Piz continues to talk to the patient about the itchiness in her nether regions, Addison wanders into the room. She laughs when she sees a flat-panel monitor displaying advertising for a book featuring Taye Diggs on the cover. It's called How To Seem Taller Without Really Trying. Addison walks up to Piz and tells him why she's there, but she interrupts herself when she sees a pretty young woman sitting in the waiting area. Addison calls her "Maya," and although Maya's dubbed-in voice sounds happy to see Addison, she acts totally awkward and standoffish when Addison approaches her. Addison: "Oh my God, you got so big. What are you, like 45 now?" We hear a voice telling Maya that she's going to be late for school. That voice belongs to the owner of the shapely ass Piz was admiring earlier. It's Francie! Or maybe it's the Francinator. Quick, offer her some coffee ice cream and see what happens. Francie seems surprised to see Addison, but not in a good way. Addison calls her "Naomi" (but "Francie" she will remain) and moves in to give her a big hug.
