Alex is looking up something on the computer when Izzie busts in and asks him if he wants to come watch the docs freeze Phil. He totally ignores her and when she asks why, he mumbles for all of us, "I'm hoping if I wait long enough you'll be as annoyed by the sound of your voice as I am and just shut up." She gets super huffy but then asks what she did. He insists she knows and finally tells her, "I had a bad night and I cried like a girl. I'm over it. You need to get over it too." So, while he's totally not listening to her side of the story and all she did was compliment him and didn't give up anything about the crying... I can't say I don't love this.
Callie excitedly hangs a bag of chilled saline and tells Phil he'll feel something cold rushing through his veins. Bailey is helping layer ice packs on him, while Callie confirms that if this works, Phil will walk again. He starts to chatter and Callie asks the Chief if they should put another cooling blanket on him, but Richard just points out that this is her case and her decision. Richard then pats himself on the back for hiring great surgeons and letting them run point on crazy experimental procedures. His pulse starts falling and Bailey seems a bit worried, but Callie assures her that it's normal. As they wait and Phil shivers, Bailey comments, "Number twelve my ass!"
Poor Derek, he's trying to tell his girlfriend about how his crazy ex stabbed him in the hand but his girlfriend only wants to take back the offer of moving in. Although Derek actually takes it like a pro, saying it's fine. She is instantly suspicious but he comments that he knows her. While that's generally considered a good thing with someone you're potentially going to move in with, she takes it as a jab and asks Derek if he didn't believe she really wanted to move in together. He points out that he believes she thought she wanted to do it. He tells her he's going to move slowly and make no sudden moves, so she counters by reminding him she built a house of candles. He answers, "Fine, let's move in together." Mere: "Fine." Derek: "Unless of course you just want to go ahead and get married." Wow, did he ever call her bluff on that one. Also? You still need more therapy, honey. Izzie storms up just then to demand to know what Mere said to Alex, and instead of just telling her that she told him he's a good man, she stutters and acts horribly guilty. Izzie just asks why Mere can't mind her own business or keep anything secret that is for anyone but Cristina. I'm sorry, but I don't remember a comment about someone having good character coming with a big "secret" warning. But they're both horribly annoying, so I'm going to stop defending Mere now.
