In a new sneak peek fromGrey's AnatomySeason 9, Episode 17: "Transplant Wasteland" (March 14), Jackson (Jesse Williams) prepares to to seal the deal on buying Seattle Grace-Mercy West.
However, before he signs the dotted line, he has a few concerns, which he shares with his mom, Catherine (Debbie Allen). First of all, he doesn't actually understand the legalese the contract is written in. Catherine tells him it's cool, no one does, just trust the lawyers, sweetie.
Which brings us to Jackson's bigger issue. At the beginning of this sneak peek, when he first walks into the meeting, his mom calls him "sweetheart." And he wants to her to know that won't fly anymore.
"When we are in there, I am not 'sweetheart,'" he tells her.
Fair enough. But we hope he knows that no matter how much respect his mom shows him, some people will always look down on him because she basically bought him the hospital, even if he didn't ask her to.
