Over at the bar, Princess finally realizes that she acted like an idiot and moans about how she got Alex in trouble when he was just trying to be nice to her. Stephanie can only think about Jackson's limpid green (or are they blue? or both?) eyes. I'd mock her but, well, if Jackson Avery was stealing glances at me across a crowded room, I'd probably be unable to string words together too. Princess admonishes her and tells her not to get involved because then she'll be pathetic like Leah. Steph thinks that he's probably not even interested; Smash has been reviewing flashcards, but looks up long enough to tell them, "Interns are like sexual catnip at this hospital." Truer words, my friend, truer words. But then he starts skipping down the road to Fantasyland and moans that he had a great teacher/student relationship with April but now she's all over him. I think that maybe, with all of the pressure of med school, Smash didn't have much time for girls. That's all I can come up with, at least, if he thinks April's slightly stilted polite attention means she's "all over him." He's in a panic because he keeps trying to talk about medicine (hence the flashcards, which have a number of potential topics written on them) while she keeps asking him personal questions.
His romantic delusions are interrupted by the bonking of pagers and their dates walk over, having gotten paged too. As Princess gets up to leave, though, Alex informs her with a sneer that she can't practice medicine since she's already had a drink and calls her "Hobo Jo." In real life I think anyone hearing that would chalk it up to Alex just being a jerk again and not wonder why he came up with that particular name but this is TV so Stephanie and Smash both look shocked while she gets all shifty and claims she has no idea why Alex would call her that. Also, how convenient is it that everyone else just happened to have water? Amazing! After everyone else leaves, he sits down next to her and orders another round for them both. Except... he was also drinking water earlier, or at least it looked like it. You know what? I think I'm asking more questions than anyone intended about this scene. Woo! More booze! This is certain to end well!
