  • Episode Description
  • Dr. Cox is still facing the threat of suspension, and coincidentally, J.D. is assigned to a special patient: Jordan Sullivan, an important board member. She is very demanding and J.D. ends up sleeping with her after he confronts her. Only he didn't know that she is Dr. Cox's ex-wife, and now the only one who can save J.D.'s mentor from being fired by the evil Dr. Kelso. Meanwhile, Elliot is assigned to take care of a shrink whose jaw has been wired shut, and for whom she ends up becoming a patient. Carla's mom makes a scandal after Carla spends the night at Turk's, and when she breaks her leg, Carla blames Turk for it.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (34)

    • Dr. Cox: She was never boring. J.D.: What happened? Dr. Cox: Eh, you marry somebody just like your mother, and then you remember you hate your mother.

    • Turk: You know, I went to therapy once. Elliot: You did? Turk: Yeah. Once, though, like, back in '93 to '94; and then three months in '95; and then I went to Group which was a disaster.

    • J.D.: Oh, thanks, that's-that's special. Look, I have to ask you a favor, but you have to know this is not why we slept together. Jordan: Yeah, you had nothing to do with why we slept together. J.D.: I think we both know that's not completely true. Jordan: Oh, please. Even though you're terrified the Good Dr. Cox'll find out, if I wanted you to go to his apartment right now and have sex with me in front of him, you would. J.D.: Please don't do that.

    • J.D.: Dr. Cox! Dr. Cox: Okay, Linus, you're way too excited; I want you to get your blankie, go in a corner, and take a time-out.

    • Dr. Cox: Hello, Jordan. J.D.'s Narration: Oh, no, no. Jordan: Perry. J.D.: "Perry"? Dr. Cox: You never heard that. J.D.'s Narration: I never heard that, I'm not here, and I don't have your ex-wife's bite mark on my neck.

    • Title Explanation: "My Bad" signifies J.D.'s bad mistake by sleeping with Jordan.

    Trivia (7)

    • The woman portrayed as Carla's mother in this episode is different from the one shown in pictures throughout the series.

    • The garden used in Dr. Cox's memory scene is the same used for J.D.'s fantasy in the last episode.

    • J.D.'s Girl Names: Agnes.

    • As previously said, during the first season the Janitor was going to be a part of J.D.'s imagination and as such never interacted with the other characters. Nevertheless, in this episode Elliot talks to him when she misses the trash can and spills coffee on the floor he's cleaning.

    • Featured Music: "Me and Mrs. Jones" by Billy Paul (performed by Donald Faison) "Good Life" by Francis Dunnery

    Allusions (3)

    • Jordan: But, gosh, Huckleberry, I sure hope we can go down to the river sometime and race frogs! Jordan is referring to the character of Huckleberry Finn, who appeared in a few of Mark Twain's books about the South, including Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

    • Dr. Kelso: Think about it, everyone will call you "Doc", you'll visit exotic ports, heck, maybe you'll even get to meet Charo! Charo is a singer, dancer, and stage performer (among other things) famous for her flamboyant stage presence and provocative outfits. She has recently begun performing on the world's largest cruise ship, the "Freedom of the Seas". Charo also guest starred more than anyone else on The Love Boat, a TV show about a cruise ship who's doctor was called "Doc" and who visited exotic ports.

    • Dr. Cox: Okay, Linus, you're way too excited; I want you to get your blankie, go in a corner, and take a time-out. Dr. Cox is comparing J.D. to Linus van Pelt, a character from the classic comic strip Peanuts. Linus is Charlie Brown's best friend, a philosophical soul who always carries a security blanket (which Charlie Brown's dog Snoopy frequently tries to steal).
