|Pilot:Â The Seattle Grace interns are at the bar across the street playing â€œWhose life sucks more?â€ Meredithâ€™s boyfriend McDreamy is McMarried. Cristina is pregnant and the baby daddy doesnâ€™t know. Joe the bartender collapsesâ€”he wins. Joe needs a standstill surgery where they stop the heart, freeze him and then bring him back to life but they only have 45 minutes to do it. The patient is clinically dead during the surgery. How crazy is that! Everyone at Seattle Grace has stories about Joe, including Bailey. Chief Webber is still recovering from his tumor surgery. He assigns George to â€œsponge dutyâ€ so he can report back about everything going on at SGH. Chief just canâ€™t take being out of the loop. He wants all the gossip and some info on the surgeries too. McDreamy runs into Addison (a.k.a. Mrs. McDreamy) who claims that sheâ€™s only there on business. Sheâ€™s there to work on a rare surgery with conjoined fetal twins. Sheâ€™s not there to convince him he canâ€™t live without her. Yeah, sure. McDreamy checks in on Chief Webber but he really wants to know why he brought Addison to Seattle Grace. The Chief tells him itâ€™s not personal, itâ€™s business. And then delivers another blowâ€”Burke will be the interim chief. Thatâ€™s just business too. Yeah. Burke asks Cristina out on a real actual date. He made rezzies at his fave dinner place but sheâ€™s got to think about it. Things get really testy between Burke and McDreamy over the Interim Chief position. It all escalates when they both have to work on Joeâ€™s standstill surgery. McDreamy constantly emphasizes that Burke is the â€œINTERIMâ€ chief. Alex hits on Izzie. She asks if he realizes that NOONE likes him. Alex says, â€œOh, I think some like me.â€ Izzie rolls her eyesâ€”as if. Burke and Cristina have a blowout in the stairwell. He demands Cristina figure out what she wants. Cristina kisses him cuz that made her hot. They donâ€™t see George a few floors up catching the whole thing.
