Richard gets paged to the OR, where Alex is prepping Carter in order to stop his internal bleeding. Poor Carter should have been careful what he wished for. Alex then tries to leave, figuring this way the Richard gets a surgery and he doesn't have to bother putting in hours he doesn't need. Richard, though, orders him to stop, and then has the nurse put on his old playlist. An awesome soulful, kind of funky song starts up and Richard starts grooving and then twirls a concerned Alex in a circle.
Ben is working with Derek again, and admits he was not happy when he had a meeting in the ninth floor conference room and could only think about Bailey and her current lovah in there. They mock each other a while like men do and then to further stereotypes, Derek invite Ben to come over and take his frustrations out on the deck. Mark and Jackson, meanwhile, are preparing a nice little bed for Keith's ear in his abdomen. Mark tells Jackson to move so he can show him something and when Jackson pointedly replies that he showed him the move twice the week before, he just says that he'll do it again now. Jackson is visibly defeated and Derek takes notice and offers him the chance to do something fancy in his spine surgery. Jackson goes over to work and Mark complains, but Derek pointedly says that he figured Mark wouldn't mind since Jackson's hands were free. He then comes right out and asks Jackson if he's ever considered neuro.
Once they are done and scrubbing out, Jackson asks Mark if he might be able to actually do the procedure next time, but Mark just teases him that now that Derek let him do a procedure he thinks he can do things by himself. Well, that actually would make a whole lot of sense, but Jackson just replies that he wants to practice on something other than fruit. Mark insists that he still isn't ready and then leaves. Derek then comes in and when he asks if everything is okay, Jackson apologizes for possibly overstepping but asks if he can come over and hammer later. Because Derek already likes him, he considers this just a good example of initiative.
Out at the deck, Owen and Ben are doing some manly measuring of wood (no, I mean that literally) and complaining. Owen is offended that the legal team told him he has to apologize to McDrunkerson while Ben gripes that Bailey didn't want to be in a relationship but now she's in a relationship with someone else. Oh, Ben. Ask any woman -- that's a story as old as the hills. Owen just tries to saw his trouble away.
