|Pilot:Â Owen is putting the million bucks the Chief gave him to good use with his trauma certification lab. The exercise takes place outside as our favorite docs are split up into teams to work on dozens of injured mannequins. Most of the teams fail and Jackson ends up quitting. Only Alex and April remain in the rain. We did mention itâ€™s been pouring for most of the exercise, didnâ€™t we? No? Well, it is Seattle. We just assumed you guess the weather would be a bit on the damp side. Or in this caseâ€¦torrential! Blame it on the rain if youâ€™d like, but the fictional helicopter Owen promised never comes. Bear in mind, it couldnâ€™t because this whole exercise is based on imaginary scenarios. But fiction meets reality when April loads her two surviving mannequins into a nearby ambulance. Alex helps even as Owen is screaming that the ambulance isnâ€™t in play. Well, it is now! April jumps behind the wheel and drives her patients up to the ER. Looks like April and Alex just got certified! Lungs have become available for Roy, Cristinaâ€™s transplant candidate. But Roy starts crashing shortly after his estranged daughter shows up. Cristinaâ€™s a deer in headlights as she completely freezes. Roy stabilizes but his heart is failing. In addition to new lungs, Roy may now also need a new ticker. Lexieâ€™s patient, Christy, is getting a gluteal implant. In short, she wants a bigger butt. Actually, she wants a really big butt. Lexie thinks Christy may be having the procedure to impress someone. But in truth, Christy just wants a backside that will allow her jeans to stay up. She doesnâ€™t expect Lexie to understand. Christy can see that, even through the lab coat, itâ€™s obvious Lexie has a nice derriere. Just ask Mark.
