Things get personal when Richard and Owen vie for a complex surgery. Owen calls Richard's approach, "old school," and Richard retorts, "I've been dissecting tumors since you were in diapers." Derek asks them both to present their cases and he'll decide. Cristina volunteers to help Richard, so she can spy on him to help Owen. Richard is onto her, though. He offers her surgeries if she'll be spy on Owen. Derek calls Richard's presentation "impressive," but chooses Owen. Richard is angry, saying, "He doesn't have a plan, he has an attitude." But when Owen's seat-of-the-pants approach gets him in trouble, Richard graciously jumps in to help out.
