The Grey's Anatomy writers are so good, they can write a scene incorporating haircut humor, Calzona drama, Grey Sloan Memorial money woes, and Crowen sexual tension — all in under two minutes! Check out the sneak peek below to see what we mean.
"Haircut," Cristina (Sandra Oh) says matter-of-factly, sidling up alongside Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) in a hallway.
"Yes!" Arizona responds, fluffing her newly-trimmed mane, ready to hear the follow-up compliment… which never comes.
"You can't just say 'haircut,'" she protests. "You have to say 'Nice haircut.' Otherwise I'll think that you think that it's a bad haircut. And I'm wearing a dress and I got a haircut 'cause I wanna look nice today. Do I look nice?!"
Owen (Kevin McKidd) meets them and opens a pair sliding doors, revealing a wrecked outpatient surgery wing with a gaping hole in the ceiling. He pleads for Cristina, Arizona, and the rest of the board to meet and make a plan so that the hospital can stop "leaking money."
Arizona offers up all the reasons why they can't meet right now — all except one. "You and Torres can't be in the same room," asserts Owen.
Arizona argues that the doctor need patients more than it needs board members, but Owen contends that it needs both.
She skulks away, and Cristina tells Owen that the two of them can't be alone together — as that playful Grey's Anatomy music plays. You know, the plucky instrumentals that says, "The characters are talking about sex!"
