Meredith: When I told my mother I wanted to go to medical school, she tried to talk me out of it. Said I didn't have what it takes to be a surgeon. That I'd never make it.

When a patient is flown in via helicopter, you can see the KOMO 4 logo on the side of the building and their satellite dishes on the roof. However, the hospital used for most other exterior and many interior shots is not in Seattle. These scenes are shot at the VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center in North Hills, California.

    Trivia (306)

    • Goof:During the scene where O'Malley is performing surgery, Karevappears inmedium shots at the door of the gallery, but when a wide shot of the gallery is shown, Karev is not standing at the door.

    • Taking the first letter of each of the original interns' first name, the word magic can be spelt.

    • Goof: When Meredith first sees Derek for the first time in the hospital, while she is speaking to Bailey, you can see the legs of the cameraman in the glass next to the door.

    • Goof: The scene of the sun rising in fast motion is actually a shot of the sun setting in Norfolk, Virginia, that is played in reverse to make it look like a sunrise. Look closely and you can see the cars are going backwards.

    • Goof: When Izzie and George are talking, Izzie proceeds to stretch. She puts her hands in front of her then lifts them above her head. In the next shot, her hands are back in front of her, and she is shown lifting them over her head again.

    • Goof: When Burke moves George away from the appendectomy patient, George's gloves are almost spotless, despite being covered with blood just moments earlier.

    • Goof: When Meredith and Derek are reintroducing themselves to each other at the beginning of the episode, Derek climbs over the couch while shaking Meredith's hand. In the immediate following shot, Meredith is at the stairs, not even within arms length, waving with the same hand that was just shaking Derek's hand.

    • Goof (editing continuity): While the interns are moving towards the landing helicopter, Izzie isn't wearing her glasses. In the next shot, she is suddenly wearing them, but as the view changes again, her glasses are gone. There would be no time to put on your glasses while picking up a patient, and it would make absolutely no sense to put on your glasses to just take them off again after a few seconds.

Jack Kevorkian died in 2011, four years after being paroled from prison.
