|Pilot:Â Izzieâ€™s found herself a hobby to keep busy during her cancer treatment. Unfortunately for Mer-Der, itâ€™s planning a big, â€œchurchyâ€ wedding (which they so donâ€™t want). Even her first chemo treatment doesn’t slow Izzie down as she forces Meredith to try on dress after dress. The cancer specialist, Dr. Swender, is concerned that Izzie is going to wear herself out. She doesnâ€™t know Izzie like we know Izzie. Callieâ€™s dadâ€™s in town. If you remember Mr. Torres from his last visit, you know George should probably head for the hills. Unfortunately, Dr. Oâ€™Malleyâ€™s a little too slow and he finds himself in the patented Torres choke-hold. Callie mercifully calls off her father. But dear old dad then pounces on McSteamy. The guyâ€™s on a rampage! Callieâ€™s able to call him off again. Mr. T. (not the one with the Mohawk) insists on meeting the person Callieâ€™s dating now. So Callie introduces him to Arizona Robbins. Dadâ€™s response? Heâ€™s making her move back home with him and her mother! Izzie feels great, until she starts vomiting suddenly. She gets out of bed to get a dress that’s fallen to the floor. When she bends down, she collapses. Suddenly it hits her (and us)â€”sheâ€™s very, very sick. A man who was hit by a car comes into the ER. Owen and George suspect the man tried to kill himself. Alex, on the other hand, canâ€™t be bothered to babysit just one patient. Despite Georgeâ€™s warning, he leaves the man alone. The patient disappears and Owen flips out. Alex and George argue with each other as they check the parking lot. They watch their patient swan dive out a window onto a car several stories below. The guyâ€™s in bad shape, but Owen and George pull him through. Owen is impressed with Georgeâ€™s grace under pressure. Owen says he should consider trauma for his specialty. Thatâ€™s our George. Always cool in the clutch. Unless that clutch belongs to Mr. Torres!
