Teddy and April are the other two doctors missing out on the once-in-a-lifetime conjoined twin surgery. When Cristina comes in April figures that Teddy paged her as a replacement and is really confused when Teddy tells April to keep working. She then calls out to Cristina to start from the beginning. As if standing for a military inspection, Cristina holds her head high and begins to recount, step by step, everything she did in Henry's surgery. April is kind of alarmed at the strange little scene playing out in front of her and Teddy has to call to her to get her mind back on her work. Cristina has clearly done this quite a number of times now and has it down, but she is by no means unfeeling about it. She just very professionally walks through each step and each decision that she made as the surgery progressed. She finishes up by saying that she and Richard finally agreed that Henry had lost too much blood for his heart to restart and declared time of death at 8:52 PM. Teddy thinks this all over, visualizing it, and then tells Cristina to start again from the beginning, much to April's horror.
Meredith is not having nearly as awful a time, but it's still pretty awkward when Bailey starts using Mere's mishandling of the clinical trial as an example of someone feeling far too comfortable working with her husband and consequently screwing up both of their careers. (And I might argue that what she did didn't have anything to do with her relationship with Derek but rather her relationship with the Webbers, but that feels like an argument for another time with Bailey building up a head of steam here.) Mere tries asking some more stupid questions to get the conversation back to surgery, but Bailey is on a roll and won't be stopped. Finally, after Bailey keeps talking about setting boundaries so her life doesn't fall apart like Meredith's did, Mere has to step in to defend that in fact, her life is rather awesome right now. Bailey just hushes her. Ben then asks her who is the last person she sees before she goes to sleep. She starts talking about the spleen and pancreas like a lunatic, but finally he makes her answer the question and when she tells them it's Derek, Ben pointedly says that it must be nice.
Lexie goes out to talk to Gretchen and her poor young husband who never gets a name. "Mr. Evans" sounds far, far too old for a kid in a beanie who looks like the lost member of Fall Out Boy. Let's call him Pete. Pete asks her if they've done the flip yet and when he hears that it's coming right up, asks where there is a bar he can escape to for a little while. (I'm just surprised to lean that he's supposed to be at least 21 years old since I figured these two were 18 or 19.) Lexie does seem a little surprised at the request as she directs him to Joe's, and Gretchen's hackles are raised. She snots that he's not a total drunk like she's sure Lexie thinks, and that he has a good job with benefits. Lexie immediately tries to assure her that's not what she thought but Gretchen is on a roll, accusing Lexie of thinking, "what everyone thinks," which she goes on to say is that these two accidentally got pregnant and now have kids they can't take care of who will probably wind up being raised by one of their mothers. She's so wound up about it that I can't help but think that somewhere deep down, this is what she might fear about herself. But she continues on that they love each other and wanted these babies, and will do everything they can to make sure they are okay which includes taking the hospital's charity and sitting with judgy doctors. She's not making a huge case for her maturity level here but she's also obviously terrified, and Lexie immediately tries to talk her off the ledge. She assures the girl that all she was thinking about was how lucky Gretchen is to be with someone she loves.
