    • Turk: Hey! J.D.: Why are we whispering? Turk: I got a little mad at that Cole kid and I threw a blanket over his head and then sat on him. He doesn't know it's me. J.D.: What's your exit strategy? Turk: I haven't really thought that far ahead. J.D.: I got a plan... Todd, can you come here and sit on this? Todd: Ok! So dude or chick? Actually, don't ruin it, I'm good either way.

    • J.D.: I'm having a little trouble getting my teacher groove going. Dr. Cox: Maybe you suck at it. J.D.: Why do you have to lash out, Perry? Stay open for business in here, in your heart cage.

    • Cole: You know that bust you pass on your way to pick up your tiny paycheck? Notice any resemblance? Symmetric features, strong jaw? Yeah, that's my pop pop. He paid for this whole building. So here's the skinny, I'm Teflon. You can fire bullets at me if you want, but be careful 'cause when they ricochet off me they sometimes hit other, pa-ching.

    • J.D.: Everyone take a mix CD on their way out! For those of you who are a fan of a young miss Miley Cyrus, I recommend the green ones, she's heavily featured!

    • Ben: You look like you could use a grape! Lucy: Thanks Ben, I really could. Dr. Cox: No stealing food from patients.
