“Grey’s Anatomy” recap: Episode 7.17 – “This is How We Do It”

Bailey finds the Chief in his office and tells him that the FDA gave them the clearance that they needed on their surgery. Bailey congratulates the Chief and tells him that enough is enough. He needs to pick a new Chief  Resident or delegate that responsibility to someone else to chose for him. The Chief tells Bailey to that she should do it and she says, “No, I raised those babies. Pick someone else who is not me.”

Teddy is doing a follow up on Henry and explaining what happened during his surgery. Henry tells Teddy that he has real feeling for her and it wasn’t just the morphine talking. Teddy tells Henry to stop flirting with her in front of other doctors and reiterates that his feelings and their relationship are not real and she doesn’t have feelings for him. Diss! Maybe Henry and Stark should date.

Elijah meets Bailey in the parking lot and asks Bailey to say that he was right so they can just kiss and make up. Bailey, being Bailey, just walks off.  Elijah calls after her.

Elijah: Inside the hospital you’re the man that’s the protocol. But outside the hospital I’m the man. I’m the man. Now you can call me Cro-Magnon or old fashioned, but that’s not going to stop me from taking you home to my bed tonight and showing you what kind of man I am.

Then Elijah kisses her. Elijah’s little speech reminded me of Nicolas’s Cage’s speech to Cher in Moonstruck:

Come upstairs. I don’t care why you come. No, that’s not what I mean. Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is and I didn’t know this either. But love don’t make things nice, it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We’re not here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. We are here to ruin ourselves and break our hearts and love the wrong people and die! The storybooks are bulls–t. Come upstairs with me, baby! Don’t try to live your life out to somebody else’s idea of sweet happiness. Don’t try to live on milk and cookies when what you want is meat! Red meat, just like me! It’s wolves run with wolves and nothing else! You’re a wolf just like me! Come upstairs with me and get in my bed! Come on! Come on! Come on!

Hottie walks up to Alex’s trailer and he offers her some of his stolen baby shower food. Alex hands Hottie a beer and Hottie sits next to Alex and kisses him. (Who saw that coming a mile away?)

Hottie and Alex hang out in the parking lot like high school kids, making out while Lexie and Avery are getting their groove on at home. April walks into the living room and pushes Lexie and Avery over.

Lexie and Avery climb off each other head upstairs to make out in private. April turns on the movie that she and Stark were going to watch and shoves popcorn in her face. I love popcorn. Kettle corn is my favorite. What’s your favorite?

At Casa de la Cristina, she’s preparing dinner (ordered pizza) and Owen walks in and delivers some news. The Chief just asked him to take over and select the new Chief Resident. Cristina is so excited but then she freaks out because she realizes that Owen can’t pick her since they are married. Just another reason why Cristina shouldn’t have married Owen.

Callie and Arizona are on their way to the bed and breakfast and Callie is texting with Mark. Arizona takes Callie’s phone away and throws it in the back seat. Callie reaches back, grabs the phone and tells Arizona that she’s just jealous of Mark and she needs to get over it.

Arizona: Do you blame me? He gets most of you! The straight you, the Catholic you, the girl who loves baby showers. I just get the gay you, which is only about 20 minutes a night and not even since you just feel too fat to let me touch you.
Callie: I’m doing my best here to make sure you are happy and Mark is happy and the tiny person growing inside me is happy. I don’t know what else I can do to be honest. Please tell me because I will do it. Whatever will make you happy I will do it!  
Arizona (turning to Callie): Marry me!
Callie: What?

Arizona: I mean it I love you more than anything. I want more, I want commitment, I want rings. So, marry me?

Callie looks deep into Arizona’s eyes, which aren’t focused on the road, and then suddenly they both look back and their car crashes. The screen goes white and I’m stunned. 

What did you think about this week’s episode?  Are you excited about next week’s big musical event?
