GREY'S ANATOMY EPISODE RECAP


"THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST"

airdate: April 3, 2005
written by: Shonda Rhimes
directed by: Peter Horton


After considering several candidates, Meredith decides who will be her roommates during her first-year internship. Back on the job, she butts heads with a pediatric intern to save the life of a newborn child, and also claims temporary possession of a gruesome "souvenir" left behind by the man who raped her patient Allison. Meanwhile, Cristina and Alex get their act together, so to speak; George spends a few disheartening hours with the Seattle Grace code team; and Izzie copes with a patient who speaks no English. In other developments, Burke finds out why Derek may be chosen as chief of surgery over him; and Webber remains close-mouthed over how well he knew Meredith's mom.

GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:

It's all about lines. The finish line at the end of residency, waiting in line for a chance at the operating table, and then there's the most important line, the line separating you from the people you work with. It doesn't help to get too familiar, to make friends. You need boundaries, between you and the rest of the world. Other people are far too messy. It's all about lines. Drawing lines in the sand and praying like hell no one crosses them.




GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:
At some point you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know: if you're willing to take the chance, the view from the other side is spectacular.

  • Derek to a patient: "I have good news and bad news. The good news is Dr. Bailey stopped your bleeding. The bad news is we're giving your penis to the cops. Have a nice life."
