I really liked this episode but that's because Mer & Alex Rocked surgery! They were awesome. Confident & in command. Just loved it. Nice that Jackson was the one that messed up and with April she kind of screwed up too.

Arizona leaves. Mark says you're trying to psych her out and Callie says Ortho is getting that money because the tiny humans get plenty. Mark says he's getting the money and Callie is laughing.

Owen talking to Richard for the money. Says they need more trauma training for the staff. Owen says some of the people that died in the shooting might have been saved. Owen says Bailey did the best she could but with more trauma training maybe she would have assessed the situation differently and maybe Charles would have lived. Owen says Bailey will never forget that and neither will he. They failed their own doctors.
Mark with Richard. Mark wants to expand the burn unit & make the hospital nationally renowned for cosmetic surgery. Revenue from cosmetic helps support the burn unit.

Mer jumps up and is mad and says he conned her that he hustled her into thinking he couldn't do it so she wouldn't practice hard. Der says if you didn't practice hard then you were over confident. Tells Avery he gets the surgery.
Arizona with chief. Finishes & Rich looks surprised and says good job. Arizona says you thought I'd cry? Says so did Callie, in fact, she gave me tissues.

Scene where Mer comes into Megans room, diagnoses her and tells Lexie to page Shepherd 911.
Pager in OR. Telling Der and that's when Jackson screws up.
Callie with chief. Finishes. Chief says he was expecting something more impressive. Says take Dr. Robbins and Callie interupts him and goes on rant about how Arizona is better at everything than her. Nicer, more patient, even a better lesbian. Goes on and on about Callie being a late bloomer in that area and always just beeing a little on the outside of the circle. Not that she should have to apologive for having some history of liking sex with men. Richard just rolling his eyes.
Roy asking Cris if she is one of those geniuses that can't communicate socially. Cris says you mean autistic and he says yes, and laughs.

Der talking to chief. Going to find a cure for Alzheimers. Richard says it will take more than a million for that. Der says he will find it because he's scared about Mer. Says he just watched her do an emergency craniotomy and she was perfect. Says she has her mom's skill & what if she has her disease? Says he's terrified everytime she forgets her keys or what day of the week it is. Says Ellis's started young. When the million runs out investors will throw money at him because they will have a dad, mom or wife that has Alzheimers. Same reason he will throw everything into this research. Break throughs don't happen because of medicine, they happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying. (GREAT speech)
Alex talking to Seth. Seth tells him he's the man, Alex says no you're the man and they bump fists.
April talking to panel about Roy needing transplant. Chief walks in. April nervous & says his labs are really bad & he's not a candidate. Chief asks then why convene a panel. April stuttering around. Teddy rolling eyes. April bombing, starts saying that they thought the patient was a candidate but they thought his daughter was coming and he has no one else and so has no one to help after the surgery. Cris says that's not a reason. Teddy asks Cris if she has something to say but Cris says no. Then she says that in all the transplant surgery's she's been involved with you have to factor in the patients will to live and that Roy has a great will to live. Cris says give him the lungs and he'll make it. She knows he will.
Avery watching women with partner. Der comes up and Avery says what are we going to tell them. That he messed up? Der says they are not going to say that. That he made an error and it happens and Der fixed it. Says now they go in and tell the ladies that the surgery was a success because it was. They go in. Women says to Der, did the kid do good. Der says the kid did good. Womans partner hugs Jackson and says she was wrong and thanks him.
April accusing Cris of not having her back, turning on her. Cris says she didn't plan it. April says she's not used to failing and Cris says she's not either. Ted comes up. Cris says she knows Teddy wasn't for Roy getting a transplant but she didn't agree. Sorry. Teddy says their job as doctors is to form an opinion and then argue for it. Cris did that and today she was a doctor.
Bailey/Chief talking & she wants the money for basic stuff. Fixing broken equipment and more nurses. Richard says he wanted something more inspiring. Bailey says look we both know you don't have a million dollars. Chief says things might just be a little different around here for the next few weeks.
Cris goes into Roy's room, little smile on her face. Roy laughs and says he can't call her sour puss anymore.
Locker room. Everyone tossing their dark blue scrubs in the dirty hamper. Lexie is asleep on the bench.
Mer's Voice Over is talking about how everyone wants to grow up real fast but they don't realize when they get out of the nest that they are all alone.
