The Episode That Started It All

The Interns Meet
Who can forget the night we met Meredith Grey, the first-year surgical intern who hooked up with a handsome man the night before her first day at Seattle Grace Hospital, only to find out it was her boss, Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd.

Plenty of awkwardness followed, but soon, a budding romance would blossom. On her first day of work, Meredith bonded with an eclectic group of fellow interns, faced emotional family issues, and felt the growing pains of a brutal occupation.

Tonight, ABC is airing the Grey's Anatomy pilot episode, "A Hard Day's Night" at 9 p.m., as the network officially moves the series to its new time slot. New episodes will air during this time when the show returns in the fall, but for the duration of the summer, it will continue to run on Sundays as well -- including this week, when another early episode airs.

This is a great chance to relive the early days of Grey's Anatomy, when Cristina was sarcastic, George was insecure, and Bailey was bossy. Okay, so none of that has changed. Regardless, it will be fun to watch again, or perhaps for the first time, if you are a new Grey's Anatomy convert. Tell all your friends to watch... then check out the Insider for a complete recap!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
