Frankie is supremely pissed that there's a hoard of doctors outside his door who want to stare at him, but Lexie decides to take a different approach, one that shows some understanding that having one's arm sewn to one's leg would be a pretty crappy situation. She agrees that they want to see him and ask questions because he's rare and special, and then adds that there might also be press, and that there's a lawyer there as well who thinks that the restaurant might owe him a lot of money. This gives Frankie a new perspective, and after a moment asks how much. She just smiles and asks, "Sometimes change is good, right?" He smiles at her, his arm-leg forgiven.
Mark walks into his place and when he sees Callie with the crib, thinks that she's rebuilding it for him. She looks scared, and comments that she wanted to do this before he got home, but he is too happy to read her expression and tells her sincerely that she didn't have to do this and he also isn't going to hold her to the offer to help raise the baby. She stands up and says his name, but he just smiles and asks if she thinks this is kind of great. There's a slight hitch behind his smile though, like maybe a little part of him recognizes that this is all about to go horribly wrong. Callie pulls two pieces of the crib apart, and his face drops like a lost child and he asks what she's doing. Tears pool in his eyes as she tells him to sit down, as Mere explains, "Sometimes the changes are forced on us.
"Sometimes they happen by accident." Lexie walks up to Alex and takes one of the Valentine's chocolates, and he watches her as she bites into it. She notices his staring and grouses at him to get used to the hair because she's keeping it. Newly Emotional Alex is also now supportive, and says that he thinks she should because she's moving on, and he didn't think it was a bad change in the first place. They both gripe about hating Valentine's Day, and as Mere adds, "And we make the most of them," they make the most of the situation and start making out and ripping off each others' clothes in the supply closet.
Owen and Cristina are walking out -- she might hate Valentine's Day, but she's clearly enjoying a schmoopy cuddle with her hot boyfriend. Teddy stops them and asks if Owen has a minute, but when Cristina offers to wait outside Teddy tells her to stay and then announces bluntly that she told Owen she loves him and knows she can't unring the bell, but that she's taking it back. Cristina starts to insist she'll wait elsewhere but Teddy manically insists she stay, knowing that this is the only way Owen will possibly hear what she has to say. She tells him the same thing she did earlier, that she misses her friend, and says that she can deal with everything else because she's got a cottage and a great job and an amazing student in Cristina. She clearly means it, too -- she's not just blowing smoke to try and smooth things over. She announces that they are going to be friends and tells Cristina she's about to do a valve replacement. Cristina's jaw drops and then she happily runs off to prep. Mere VOs: "We have to constantly come up with new ways to fix ourselves." Owen, still uncomfortable talking to her, tells her she can't unring the bell but she assures him happily that she knows, "But I'm gonna try like hell."
