  • Episode Description
  • J.D. has finally earned the spot as brightest student, but he's got competition: Nick Murdoch, who seems to be nicer, friendlier and has a better butt than him. But even J.D. can't hate the guy, for he is so nice. But he is surprised when he finds Nick sitting in a corner crying because he can't take the pressure of medical internship. Meanwhile, Turk is having problems at the operation table and doesn't tell Carla, who keeps bothering Dr. Cox about it. And Dr. Cox gives Turk a very unique suggestion on how to calm down before surgery.moreless

  • Quotes (25)

    • Dr. Cox: Carla? Wow. You look great. Carla: You're not messing with me, right? Dr. Cox: No. But I'd like to.

    • Dr. Kelso: Well, lookie, here. I thought this was my special place. I'd ask you not to tell any of the others about this spot, but none of them seem to be talking to you. J.D.: Uh... it's been a rough day, sir. Dr. Kelso: You see, Dr. Dorian, your problem is... you're a pansy. If you were in my way, I'd throw you off this ledge right now. We're out here alone... No one would ever know. J.D.: I'm'unna... I'm'unna... I have to... things. J.D. quickly leaves Dr. Kelso: Interns are fun.

    • Dr. Kelso: Good afternoon, doctors. I've gathered you all here because, well, attendance at my new conferences has been very disappointing. In fact, I've begun to wonder if maybe you have something more important to do. Maybe you feel the need to sneak off and have a little nappy-nap. I love nappy-naps. Or... maybe you've forgotten that my conferences are mandatory!

    • J.D.'s Narration: I think everyone's finally coming around to my way of thinking about Nick. Carla: You're right, he definitely has a cute little butt. Elliot: Oh, it's almost like it's been sculpted. J.D.: Who cares? Everybody's got a cute butt; I have a cute butt. Carla: You should bring it in someday.

    • Turk: You know, even though nothing happened today, it's still kinda freakin' me out. Todd: Mm-hmm. Turk: I mean, one flinch, one hiccup, and that's the difference between life and death? Todd: Mm. Turk: It's a lot to have on your shoulders, you know? Todd: Mm. Carla: Hey. What're you guys talking about? Todd: Cheese. Carla: Turk is so lucky I met him first.
