Callie is watching Andrew's surgery from the scrub room when Mark comes in and tries to get her to sit and rest. But she won't sit, nor will she take her eyes off of Erica -- something that doesn't escape Mark, and he teases her that it's inappropriate to be thinking about sex right now. Callie, eyes still on her friend, says that they just spent nine hours with a kid encased in concrete whose legs were crushed, and that through all that she was still turned on by Mark's dirty talk. He points out that it wasn't him, and reminds her that he was talking about her and Erica the whole time. Callie gets all flustered and tries to deny it, but he sincerely tells her that it's okay. "I wish I was all someone thought about."
Lexie finds George watching the same surgery from the gallery. She sits next to him so he moves, and she just follows to his new seat. I love that the extra they have in there playing another doctor kind of glances as them but then makes a point of staring straight ahead, like this wouldn't be totally annoying and he wouldn't kick them out in real life. But this way, George is a semi-captive audience so that Lexie can spout a lot of info that he doesn't want. He had 14 letters of recommendation in his file, which is more than any of the others. She tells him the words that were used to describe him were totally different. The others were lauded for their grades, and for being smart and hardworking. But his letters talked about his kindness, attention to detail, and how hard he tried and never gave up. "They painted a picture of the kind of doctor that I hope to become. It was an honor to read those letters." She tells him that what separates him from the others isn't one point, but greatness. "So don't you dare let one point hold you back." She then gets up and leaves before he can say anything.
