  • While it is well written throughout, it is the last five minutes that make this a memorable episode, especially as character development for Bob Kelso.

    • (After being pelted with tennis balls) J.D.: (His entire right hand is moving) Guys, I think there might be something wrong with my spine, because I'm not doing that!

    • Orderly: (Handing Elliot a chart) This guy has an S.T.D., and he definitely doesn't want his wife to find out. Elliot: (Walks in, sees Kelso) Dr. Kelso: Crap.

    • J.D.'s Narration: Even though I had no clue what I was gonna say, Elliot's attitude inspired me to go introduce the hell out of Bob Kelso. J.D.: Ladies and gentlemen, Dr. Bob Kelso is a- Dr. Kelso: Thank you, Dr. Dorian! Thank you so much for this award. Delighted to see you all...

    Trivia (6)

    • If Dr. Kelso didn't want his wife to know about his STD, why didn't he write himself the prescription rather than going to a clinic where someone might recognize him?

    • Just after J.D. loses his balance on his whelchair, the camera pulls back to show that Dr. Cox and the rest of the gang are still balanced on two wheels. However, at the angle the chairs are, you can see the two metal bars, parallel to the wheels themselves, beneath the wheelchairs that prevented the actors from falling over backwards.

    • When Dr. Kelso is flashing back to when he got the earring, there is already blood on the collar of his shirt before he puts it through his ear.

    • Featured Music: "Sideways" by Citizen Cope

    • When Dr. Kelso is telling Cox and J.D. about the rich patient that is the "money pinata waiting to be whacked open", Kelso's monographed lab coat clearly reads "Perry Cox".

    • Heckle and Jeckle: Mr. Keck calls Turk and JD 'Heckle and Jeckle' in reference to the cartoon characters; two wisecracking crows who always outsmarted their enemies.

    • Deep Throat: Janitor: Yeah? Who was Deep Throat? J.D.: Mark Felt, the FBI guy. That's been all over the news for months. Mark Felt had indeed recently outed himself as 'Deep Throat', the whistblower in the Watergate Scandal. His disclosures to journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein led to the uncovering of the Watergate affair and the resignation of Richard Nixon.

    • Maury Povich: JD says "I'm not really gonna take my psychological evaluations from someone who dispenses them in between watching Maury and eating a corn muffin." He is referring to Maury Povich, a talk show host on NBC.

    • Deadwood: J.D.: I'm gonna need you to go back in there and use some form of the word "die": dead, dying, deadsies, Deadwood - your choice. Turk: Deadwood? J.D.: Did you know cowboys used to curse? Turk: I didn't know that. Deadwood is a western Drama on HBO.

    • Colonel Sanders: Dr. Kelso: Thank you, Colonel Doctor. Doctor: Excuse me? Dr. Kelso: I'm sorry, I don't know your name, and you look like that Kentucky Fried Chicken guy. Dr. Kelso is talking about Harland David 'Colonel' Sanders, the founder of the famous restaurant chain 'Kentucky Fried Chicken'.
