Previously, the really good-looking interns all started working at Seattle Grace. Meredith found out her one-night stand is her boss. Meredith's mom is a legend at the hospital, and she has Alzheimer's, which no one knows.
Meredith pins up a flyer in the locker room soliciting roommates. Meanwhile, a ferry is heading towards the city. She VOs the Theme of the Week. "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." As part of the arrival montage Cristina zooms up on a motorcycle, while George forgets something and pops back into his car. "It doesn't help to get too familiar. To make friends. You need boundaries between you and the rest of the world." Gee, I wonder if maybe her thinking might be changed by the end of today. That would be SHOCKING. While they all get scrubbed up in the locker room, Alex checks out Izzie, and Meredith puts some cute, preppy leopard flats away in her locker.
