  • The episode explores the relationships J.D has with Dr.Cox and Dr. Kelso. Turk unwittingly proves himself worthy of Carla's love by his willingness to forfeit sex for honesty. Elliot stumbles upon the "magic" qualities of her "ladies" (J.D. terminology).

    • The Wonder Years: After Dr. Cox berates J.D. over informing Kelso so he will get nailed for using a dead patient's insurance on someone without it he asks "What in the hell do you want from me?" J.D.'s fantasy with them playing catch is done as a home movie in the style of "Wonder Years", a popular 80s show about a man reminiscing of his childhood in the 1960s that starred Fred Savage.

    • The Rock: When Elliot promises a patient that The Rock will be by to visit later, she is referring to former WWE Superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Since the WWE, The Rock has gone on to star in several acting roles.

    • Family Feud: The scene with the guys discussing what guys want to see more than anything in the whole wide world features the Family Feud set. Family Feud is a long running game show where 2 families compete against each other by trying to guess the most popular answers based on surveys of 100 people and getting points based on how many people out of those 100 picked that answer.

    • Star Wars IV: A New Hope: The "battle" between Dr. Cox and Kelso at the end of the episode is a parody of Star Wars.
