|Pilot:Â When Meredith Grey posts a Roommates Wanted ad, George Oâ€™Malley and Izzie Stevens beg her to move in but Meredith believes there should be a definite line between work and personal relationships. Arenâ€™t lines meant to be crossed? As soon as Meredith is alone in the elevator with Derek, she blurts out, â€œIâ€™m not going out with you. Iâ€™m drawing a line.â€ Derek asks, â€œIs this an imaginary line?â€ (Heâ€™s such a flirt!) She throws him against the wall and they have a hot and heavy make-out session. A rape victim is rushed into the O.R. and you wonâ€™t believe what they pull out of the victimâ€™s mouth. A penis! Now Meredith has to carry it around in a cooler until the police arrive. Ew, can you imagine? Alex, the snarky intern who called Meredith a â€œnurseâ€ is transferred to Baileyâ€™s team. Cristina hates him and lets him know. Youâ€™ve got to love her honesty. Going on rounds is torture for them. Their patients have nothing wrong so they donâ€™t get to do procedures, and worst of all they have to endure hugs from the doing-just-fine patients. Theyâ€™re not exactly touchy-feely types. Izzie risks her job when she treats a woman hiding outside who is afraid to go in for treatment because she has no green card. (Iz has so much heart.) Meredith is really affected by the rape victim. George takes Meredith to the Pediatric Ward because babies make you happy. One of the babies turns blue and Meredith discovers he has a heart murmur. The Pediatric Intern kicks Meredith out when Meredith questions the babyâ€™s treatment plan. (Really? Itâ€™s just some tests.) Meredith grabs her penis cooler and leaves in a huff. Dr. Burke confronts Chief Webber about why Dr. Shepherd is also a candidate for the future Chief position. Webber tells him that Burkeâ€™s too arrogant and if he wants the chief position, he has to earn it. Tensions are going to rise!
