This episode was supposed to be the original Season 1 finale but ABC ended with 1x09 "Who's Zoomin' Who?" They wanted the show to end alongside Desperate Housewives so added the planned last five episodes of Season 1 to the beginning of Season 2 instead. See more »


In 'Bring the Pain', when Alex and George are in the elevator waiting for Burke to come back, you briefly see the opening to the lift dressed with the blue paper and two nurses in the background. When the camera pans back up a few moments later, the nurses are still there but the papered up opening is not. Nor is it there when Burke finally does reappear with what they need for the open-heart surgery. See more »
