|Pilot:Â Intimacy baffles Meredith Grey. She is trying to figure out the rules. How do you know when youâ€™ve crossed the line? All she knows so far are that they come attached to the three Râ€™s: Relatives, Romance and Roommates. Cristina Yang is determined to perform a surgery today and sneaks into SGH at 4:00 AM (yes, 4:00 AM) to call dibs on the perfect candidateâ€”a pancreatic cancer patient who needs the rare â€œWhippleâ€ surgery. The patient was a former scrub nurse at Seattle Grace and knows exactly the game Cristina is playing. Nurse Fallon puts Cristina in her place saying, â€œIâ€™ll call you Cristina. You call me Nurse Fallon.â€ Yes, Maâ€™am! This is going to be funâ€”for us, not for Cristina. Meredith asks Cristina if she has any other leads on surgeries but Cristina wonâ€™t reveal a thing. She needs every advantage because â€œsheâ€™s not the intern screwing an attending.â€ Apparently, Cristinaâ€™s not a morning person. Derek â€œMcDreamyâ€ Shepherd invites Meredith to breakfast but she wants to keep it professional and says no. Weâ€™ll see if she changes her mind. Izzie Stevensâ€™ prostate patient refuses to let her touch him because sheâ€™s only a model. He wants a real doctor like Bailey or Burke. Izzie thinks itâ€™d be easier of someone else handles the case but Bailey refuses saying, â€œEasy isnâ€™t in the job description.â€ McDreamy operates on a guy who accidentally shoots himself in the head with a nail gun â€“ 9 times! Cristina is so jealous that Meredith is in on this case and sheâ€™s stuck with nagging Nurse Fallon. Nurse Fallon calls Cristina â€œan aggressive little witchâ€ right in front of Burke and the Chief. Snap! And then, totally rats her out for â€œhoggingâ€ her chart so the other interns wonâ€™t get it. Chief Webber says that he was going to assign Meredith to Nurse Fallon but sheâ€™s working on the Nail Gun Guy. We love when Nurse Fallon just rubs it in Cristinaâ€™s face. Then Burke gets in on it too! It just keeps getting better.
