|Pilot:Â Meredith Grey isnâ€™t putting out until McDreamy tells her all about his mysterious past. She wants to believe this relationship is real. Cristina doesnâ€™t want to believe her patient when he warns her that she canâ€™t run away from her pregnancy. She isnâ€™t sure if heâ€™s psychic or psycho. This guy has everyone at Seattle Grace questioning their beliefs. Meredithâ€™s fight with McDreamy gets in the way of treating a paralyzed rock climber. Maybe itâ€™s a little premature for Meredith to play the suspicious girlfriend, but maybe thereâ€™s good reason. Cristina sees a counselor about ending her pregnancy but when the counselor suggests other options Cristina interrupts, â€œYou know the talking part, Iâ€™m not interested.â€ Alex and Burke work on the case of a teenage girl who needs a new heart valve. Standard procedure is to install a porcine valve. Alex jokes, â€œPorcine as in pig, the new white meat.â€ Ok, some of laughed, but just a little. The girl adamantly refuses because it goes against her religious beliefs. She challenges Alex and Burke, â€œYouâ€™re hot shot doctors. Find another way.â€ Alex surprisingly bonds with this feisty girl. Cristinaâ€™s patient suffers from seizures he believes are really psychic visions. But when the psychic makes a comment about her being « on the mommy track » she begs Izzie to switch patients. This works out well because Izzie really wants to prove the psychic is a fraud. Cristina winds up with a pregnant woman with breast cancer. She just can’t escape the issue of pregnancy. Meredith and McDreamy lock horns about the rock climber with paralysis that’s quickly spreading up his body. All tests show no problems so Meredith believes it must be psychosomatic but McDreamy believes thereâ€™s a blood clot and heâ€™s going ahead with the surgery, no matter how risky it may be.
