Much to love about tonight's episode - Karev caring for the baby, Bailey telling Derek to do his baby's hair (hilarious!), and Mark trying to get Jackson some sex. The stuff with Richard and Adele is so sad, and Christina's suspicions about Owen make me so uncomfortable - I hope she's wrong. Teddy needs to straighten up - bring Andrew back to counsel her!
