A storm rages in Seattle. Izzie is very disappointed by her date with Alex, and Meredith is upset with Derek. They both complain to George, which drives him crazy. At the hospital, Cristina has a patient that uses porn as a pain killer and Meredith takes care of an Asian girl who needs to see a Shaman before surgery. There is a power shortage and George and Alex are stuck in an elevator with a critical patient. They need to perform heart surgery, but Alex is too freaked out and so George does it. Written by

The helicopter that flies the shaman to the helipad (actually located at Fischer Plaza) is an Agusta A109/Mark II, tail N2MF which can be seen for a few frames during the overhead shot. The aircraft is part of the Airlift Northwest fleet. See more
When George and Alex are in the elevator prepping for surgery on the gunshot victim we see Alex and George both put on surgical gowns and gloves. Yet, when George removes the bandage from the wound, we see Alex look up at George and Alex is suddenly not wearing either the gown or the gloves. The next time we see Alex, he is once again in a surgical gown and wearing gloves. See more

Pain comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain. The normal pains we live with everyday. Then there's the kind of pain you can't ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else... Makes the rest of your world fade away, until all we can think about is how much we hurt. How we manage our pain is up to us. Pain. We anesthetize , ride it out, embrace it, ignore it, and for some of us the best way to manage pain is to just push through it.
