|Pilot:Â One relationship ends, one begins and one might even reconcile. Thereâ€™s hope for Meredith and McDreamy now that Addison gives him divorce papers to sign. Alex and Izzie go on their first date. One of the interns faces expulsion after failing a medical board exam. Derek tells Addison, â€œThere was a time when I thought you were the love of my life. Things change.â€ And with that, she slaps him with divorce papers. Sheâ€™ll fly out of Seattle as soon as he signs them. We thought he would have signed them on the spot, but he doesnâ€™t. Now weâ€™re all wondering… Cristina is a terrible patient. She steals patientsâ€™ charts and sneaks into rounds until Bailey restricts her to bed rest. She canâ€™t help it, sheâ€™s a surgeon and sheâ€™s trying to avoid her bubbly mother who likes Burke. She tells him more about Cristina in two minutes than he ever knew. When Burke gets Cristina alone, he says he had a right to know about the pregnancy. One of Baileyâ€™s very first and favorite patients returns to Seattle Grace. Bailey lights up every time she talks to him. Complications with his Cystic Fibrosis make the surgery very risky. Addison offers to stay in town and help with the operationâ€”Mer just canâ€™t get rid of Addison. During surgery, the patient crashes and Bailey fights to save him. Sheâ€™s not going to give up. Tears are welling up in her eyesâ€”in ours too. Weâ€™ve never seen her so shaken. Meredithâ€™s mother is still at Seattle Grace but keeps escaping from her room thinking sheâ€™s still a doctor. George canâ€™t handle her and asks the Chief to have someone else watch her. The Chief says heâ€™ll do it himself. George is pissed he disappointed his boss. Ellis kisses Chief Webberâ€”a real kiss, not just a friendly peck.
