Grey's Anatomy - Superstition

We open with outside shots of Seattle Grace. Mere voice-overs that her college campus has a magic statue the nose of which students rub for good luck. Inside shots of the hospital flash by as Mere tells us that her freshman roommate really believed in the statue's power, and insisted on rubbing its nose before every exam. That sounds kind of weird, and besides, what if the statue has a cold? MereVO: "Studying might have been a better idea; she flunked out sophomore year. But we all have little superstitious things that we do." Now we see how the doctors are superstitious before surgery: Addison pins her wedding ring to her scrubs and pats it; Burke frets about his personalized scrub caps, which didn't come in the laundry delivery, and then cracks his neck; McDreamy says, "All right, everybody. It's a beautiful morning to save lives. Let's have some fun!" Hee. Bailey's superstitious tell is closing her eyes, leaning her head back, and taking a huge breath. She recovers and snaps, "10 blade!" Suddenly, all the surgeries go wrong. Bailey's patient spurts blood everywhere, Burke's patient crashes dramatically, Addison's has a bad reaction, and McDreamy's doesn't like him rooting around in the middle of his brain. They all die.
