Recent medical school graduate Emily Owens is now a first-year surgical intern at Denver Memorial Hospital and she is ready to leave high school persona of geeky-girl-with-flop-sweats behind her. But Emily quickly realizes that a hospital is a lot like high school -- cliques and all -- when she is faced with her medical school crush Will Collins and high school nemesis Cassandra Kopelson. On top of that, Emily manages to get herself in some hot water with her attending Dr. Gina Bandari, as well as the nurses, on her first day. Another fellow intern, Tyra Dupre latches onto Emily as a new friend, and immediately begins confiding all her personal information, including the fact that Tyra is a lesbian, and that she hasn't come out to her father, who happens to be the Chief of Surgery, Dr. Dupre. Emily is also getting to know the slightly nerdy, but smart and handsome resident Dr. Micah Barnes, who is facing some serious medical issues within his own family.

The episode begins with a girl sitting alone on a bench and having her snack and a female voiceover telling us as to how difficult being in high school is as she was geeky and had no friends; especially since she sweats profusely during debates which earned her a pet name ‘Pits’. Now the voice we hear is Emily Owen’s who is looking at the girl lone girl sitting on the bench which reminded her of her tough high school days. The lone girl asks Emily why she is staring at her and calls her a loser and runs off. Even today, Emily isn’t the ‘kick-ass girl’ she always wanted to be. She then walks into the Denver memorial hospital. ..
