  • Quotes (24)

    • J.D.: All right, I should've done this a long time ago; so, here goes: I'm sorry. I shouldn't accuse you of being jealous, you were just looking out for me, and...you were right about Alex. Elliot: You never did sleep with her, did you? J.D.: No... But, why does that matter? Elliot: Because I was jealous.

    • J.D.: You remember, like, when the new 'Star Wars' movie came out, and it was all built up, and then people went to see it and it really wasn't that great in bed? Alex: Relax! The first one's a freebie, so you can get your form back.

    • Carla: I wanted to thank you...for what you did. You know, when you yelled at me in front of the other nurses. I appreciate it. Dr. Kelso: Young lady, I yelled at you because that paperwork looked like it had been done by a drunk four-year-old. Listen, Carla, I have a family who loves me, a handful of close friends, and a wonderful hobby shop in my basement; I don't spend much time worrying about people's feelings around here - I just do whatever makes me happy.

    • Turk: So, you went behind my back and got an intern to agree with you so the guy doesn't get surgery. Dr. Cox: Oh, no, you caught me. Turk: Cox, a bypass is the right call. Dr. Cox: Considering the inherent risks in surgery, I didn't- Turk: The guy's a diabetic, with two-vessel disease! Dr. Cox: And antianginals can be equally effective. Turk: So we agree that either treatment could work? Dr. Cox: Yeah, sure. Turk: Then what the hell are we arguing about?

    • Turk: Someone call for a surgical consult? Dr. Cox: You're Dr. Turk? Turk: Mm-hmm. Dr. Cox: Of course you are. Note to self: You've got to start writing down the names of people that truly annoy you!

    Trivia (4)

    • In this episode Dr. Cox doesn't call J.D. any Dog Name.

    • J.D.'s Girl Names: Grace

    • In the scene Carla loses the bus to the hospital and asks Dr. Kelso for a ride, we can perfectly see there's no traffic in the street and that Dr. Kelso's car is parked, not delayed by the bus in front of it, leaving no reason whatsoever to Dr. Kelso to be there since he doesn't live in the neighbourhood and just passes in that street when heading to the hospital (as we can see when he splashes water on Carla in a later scene).

    • Featured Music: "Fighting For My Love" by Nil Lara "1812 Overture (Opus 49)" by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
