Take the worst decision you've ever made. Got it in mind? Now multiply it by a thousand, and you've got the idea just how bad a decision Lexie and Sadie make this week. They decide to up the stakes of the secret intern society and take out Sadie's appendix. It's not a surprise that this goes horribly wrong, and they call Meredith and Cristina to help them out of it, who in turn call Bailey and the Chief. Mere and Cristina, with some coaching from Bailey, save Sadie's life and then all of the residents get together to put all of the interns on probation -- seriously, it seems like you can get away with absolutely anything at Seattle Grace without losing your job. When Lexie tries to take some of the blame with the Chief, she lets it slip that Cristina knew that the interns were up to no good, and Mere is so surprised she turns on Cristina in front of Richard. Cristina is mighty pissed that her best friend didn't stand up for her and have her back, and it kind of seems like the tension might last a while between those two. Fortunately, Cristina at least has a super hot surgeon who thinks she's beautiful -- it's all Hunt is able to finally say after spending the entire episode tongue-tied around her.
The attendings, meanwhile, are treating a man who jumped out a window while sleepwalking. Sloane shows his sensitive side and bonds with the man's 13-year-old daughter, which leads to him figuring out that this happens all the time and the girl barely sleeps. They figure out the problem and while Dad is in surgery, Sloane sits with the girl so that she can finally take a nap with her head resting on his shoulder. He's allowed to relax -- he did his own surgery earlier, on none other than Callie. When the sleepwalking dad was brought in, he woke up and started thrashing so much that he hit Callie in the face and broke her nose. Mark fixes her up, and later that night when Callie is in recovery, Bailey visits and the women both admit they're kind of tired of surgery and adrift at the moment.
