Richard is sitting by Adele's bed in the ICU, talking to Mere and Bailey -- she gives him credit for saving Adele's life with his idea. But Richard can't be consoled that easily and he tells them that he was the one who almost got her killed in the first place. When Mere reminds him that he did his best, he counters that he did what he was told, which he never thought was best. That's actually a point not to be overlooked here: in life, and especially in medical situations, you have to find a balance between listening to your doctor and/or those in charge as well as to your gut. Trust my own medical adventures on this one. He vows that it won't happen again, and then reminds Bailey that she has a wedding to get to. She must be wearing magic lipstick because it and the rest of her makeup is still flawless as she leaves. Adele then wakes up and happily has a lucid moment where she recognizes Richard and cries with happiness that he is there. She asks him to stay with her, and he promises he's not leaving. Mere smiles and then leaves to give them some time alone.
She goes in to Derek's room and climbs into bed next to him, making him promise that if she gets Alzheimer's, he won't put her in a home. Derek's a little worried about her since this is rather out of the blue, but he promises and then holds her with his good arm.
Cristina and Heather are at work on Gasoline, and Cristina walks Heather through the procedure to get that fluid out of her chest after all. Owen and Rage are standing together at the window, watching. Owen chastises him for taking Gasoline all over the hospital when she wasn't well but Rage just shrugs and points out that Owen can imagine what would happen if Rage tried to say no to her. Owen then asks him to explain the deal with Stuart. It turns out he is their accountant and has helped them out with modern-day biker club issues such as getting a group health plan and holding a Christmas toy drive. They thought it was amusing to let him hang out and ride with them but then he became so much like family that Gasoline got him his own giant club patch like they have on the back of their jackets. That patch means he's one of them for life, and Gasoline and her fluid-encased heart of gold wanted him to see it first in case he died in surgery. Owen points out that after this, Stuart might not ride again, so Rage asks him what he drives. He then gives him a speech about his pickup truck and how Owen is a "cager" stuck in a box on the road. Once Owen gets out of his cage and says goodbye to whatever is holding him back -- his job, his marriage (oooooh, coincidence) -- and boxing him in, he'll never give it up. Owen ponders this deep motorcycle advice as he gazes at Cristina.
