|Pilot:Â Richard is awake, but not eating. Shane recommends he be fed with a tube. The stubborn patient disagrees. Bailey supports his wish. So Shane calls Meredith, who instructs him to order the tube anyway. This, of course, ticks off Bailey. Richard orders some soup, but he simply canâ€™t swallow. Elsewhere, Meredith and Derek are supremely sleep-deprived. Thatâ€™s what happens when you have a new baby. He falls asleep in the car while going out for milk while she nods off on the bathroom floor. Later, after Derek zonks out on the couch, Meredith takes baby Bailey to the hospital so she can deal with the Richard situation. The interns have been crashing on the floor of Alexâ€™s house all week. Thatâ€™s been making it difficult for Jo to get intimate with her new boyfriend. Sheâ€™s wearing sexy underwear all the time waiting and hoping Alex will make a move somewhere, someway. Thatâ€™s not going to happen. Cristina deduces that itâ€™s because he wants their first time to be special. She teases him as they treat a 17-year-old boy who had a heart transplant when he was an infant. The family would rather go through a risky repair procedure rather than go on the waiting list for a new heart. Sadly, the surgery is unsuccessful, so the boy will need a transplant. The recovery rooms are overflowing because of the severe storm damage to the outpatient surgery wing. Owen wants to have a board meeting about the financial issues hitting the hospital, but itâ€™s hard to get anyone together, especially the two feuding wives on his staff. In an effort to help move forward, Arizona comes to work sporting a new haircut and a slick, sexy dress. Sheâ€™s hoping Callie will show up for some scheduled couples therapy after their shift.
