    • Sean: J.D., it's no big deal. We both know that it wasn't about that. Well, you... you like Elliot. J.D.: Sorry. Sean: Don't sweat it. J.D.: You're not pissed off? I'd be pissed off. Why aren't you pissed off? Sean: I dunno. I guess I just... I don't see you as that much of a threat. J.D.: Ohh... Cool.

You're- Turk picks her up and carries her off. Carla: Oh! Turk! Please? Just one more second? I need the rush! Please? I'm coming back for you!

    • Bruce performs a beatboxing routine Elliot: Oh, my God, Bruce! That was amazing! Where did you learn how to do that? Bruce: In temple.

    • Elliot: And... the reason that I came back here is because you said that Bruce and I are alike. And you know what? You're right. Because you're treating him the exact same way you treated me when I first got here! Dr. Kelso, you only judge us by these, like, twenty-minute, pressure-filled windows that you see us through twice a week, and you-you never get to know us or how hard we really work. Because, if you did, you'd realize that a lot of the times we fail, it's not our fault - it's yours. Dr. Kelso: Is that how you feel, future dentist? Bruce: W-well... sometimes you make me feel like... I can't do anything well, and I can do lots of things well! Dr. Kelso: Like what? Bruce: I'm a pretty solid human beat-box. Elliot: Bru-Bruce, I think he was talking about medical... things.

    • Dr. Kelso: That's horrible work. Horrible! Elliot: Dr. Kelso, I do have something to say. He gives her a blank look. Elliot: Remember earlier, you asked me if I had something to say? Dr. Kelso: No! Elliot: Well, you did.
