  • Episode Description
  • All of the male doctors are euphoric due to the visit of Julie Keaton, the pharmaceutical sales rep, except for Dr. Cox, who believes the pharmaceutical industry is destroying modern medicine and tries his best not to pant over Miss Keaton. Meanwhile, J.D. and Elliot argue over a risky decision regarding one of Elliot's patients. Turk tries to talk Carla into entering a nurse practitioner program, so that she won't always have to beg doctors to write orders for things she knows she could do on her own.moreless
