Carrie Rissler was given six months to live over eight years ago. She's still around thanks to the efforts of Dr. Miranda Bailey. Now this woman is having a lymph node transfer done thanks to a suggestion from Jackson. Bailey had deemed such a procedure too risky months ago. She isn't happy this is happening now. That's why she demands Jackson and Mark read every single line of Carrie's medical history report before operating.
Bailey drives the surgeons crazy during Carrie's operation. It gets to the point where Mark tells his protégé that he needs to remove all distractions from the OR. So Jackson asks Bailey to leave the room. This has to be a first at Seattle Grace. Mark later tells Bailey that the reason she put the kibosh on the surgery initially is because of the potential consequences. The reason they keep residents like Jackson around is to remind them of all the possibilities. Nice.
Morgan quizzes Alex as he works on a patient. The symptoms she describes are actually the ones afflicting her at the moment. That's why she passes out. Morgan is 24 weeks pregnant. Everyone in the hospital knew that. Well, everyone but Alex. He does, however, know that his intern is having a heart attack. Teddy needs to operate right away which means the baby needs to come out now.
