Dr. Christopher "Chris" Duncan Turk
Dr. Percival "Perry" Cox
Nurse Carla Espinosa
Dr. Robert "Bob" Kelso
Dr. Elliot Reid
Private Brian Dancer
Her Best Friend
Nurse Laverne Roberts
Debbie aka "Slagathor"
Elliot reveals to everyone at Sacred Heart that she is a Republican. A fact first mentioned to J.D. in the episode "My Sex Buddy".
In the scene where Dr. Kelso is narrating over Dr. Cox and Nurse Roberts, as well as Turk and Elliot, who are all arguing about the war in Iraq, Slagathor (Debbie) is standing at the end of Private Dancer's bed. You can clearly see a pink X taped on the floor showing where she is supposed to stand in the scene.
"Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes ("An Officer and a Gentleman" parody scene)
"Thrift Store T-Shirt" by Brent Jordan (Dr. Kelso becomes himself again)
Elliot gets employee discount at the coffee shack but a major story arc in this series is that she no longer works for Sacred Heart. As Kelso is the one who organized the discount, he certainly would have made sure that she wasn't entitled.
Private Dancer: (Reading the quote on the side of the coffee cup) "My Bajingo's on fire", Elliot Reid, March 2003...(Suspiciously) What's a Bajingo?
Quote of the month on Coffebucks cup: "I like laughing at poor people" -Elliot Reed
Elliot: When I said that, I was watching Good Times!
(Carla returns to the hospital after being on maternity leave)
Carla: Hi everybody.
Crowd: Welcome back, Pickle.
Turk: Who the hell came up with Pickle?!
J.D.: I did...if you call Carla "Pickle", then I can call Isabella "Little Gherkin"...I need this.
Turk: (Shaking J.D.'s hand) Yeah you do.
Carla: Actually babe, I'm just heading back home...it turns out my maternity leave doesn't end until NEXT week.
Turk: Awwww Pickle, I'm sorry...
(J.D. pats Turk on the shoulder and gives a thumbs up)
Dr. Kelso: (To the new interns) Listen up, faces. In order to save us all some time I will call all the males Daves and all the females Debbies.
Intern: Debbie's actually my name!
Dr. Kelso: Then out of fairness to the others, you will be Slagathor. Daves, Debbies, Slagathor, I will be in my office, if you need anything, feel free to bother Dorian.
Janitor: Point to Iraq on this globe.
J.D.: Why do you carry a globe around?
Janitor: In case I get lost.
(J.D. tries to point to Iraq on the globe and cannot)
Janitor: That's China.
J.D.: You're China!
Janitor: I'm China? What an outrageous accusation.
(After Turk's first statement about the War in Iraq, Elliot, perturbed, turns to J.D.)
Elliot: What do you think, J.D.?
J.D.: Can you excuse me a second?
(J.D. sidles up to Turk and speaks in a hushed tone)
J.D.: Did you break our pact and start reading the newspaper?
Turk: Carla's making me. Normally I wouldn't go near the thing except for the funnies.
J.D.: Oh, of course, the funnies! The funnies don't count. By the way, did you read Marmaduke today?
(Elliot looks on incredulously)
J.D.: Can you believe he gave the pizza delivery guy a bone as a tip?
Turk: No! But that's what's great about Marmaduke, he's always thinking on his feet.
J.D.: I think you mean "paws".
(Turk laughs explosively)
J.D.: Keep it real.
Elliot: Well, J.D.? The war?
J.D.: I don't have time for this Elliot, I have to find an apartment.
(J.D. turns back to Turk)
J.D.: If you get a chance, read the Boondocks, man that little kid hates honkies!
(J.D. walks away through a door, behind Turk)
Turk: (Chuckles, and says quietly) Who doesn't?
(Elliot and Turk walking down the hallway)
Elliot: Don't you get it Turk? All the terrorists want to do is kill you. They want to kill you!
Turk: Elliot, if you...
Elliot: Kill you!
(J.D. walks by)
J.D.: You guys, in case I find an apartment I like, I need someone to write a reference for me.
Elliot: J.D., we're in the middle of something.
(Turk gives his reply in one long, quick breath)
Turk: Elliot, the only good that's come from our occupation of Iraq is exposing the neo-conservative conspiracy to perpetuate American cultural and economic imperialism.
J.D.'s narration: I always wondered what Dr. Kelso did in his office all day.
(Cut to J.D.'s daydream)
Dr. Kelso: Human Magic 8-Ball, tell me if I should play golf this weekend.
(Dr. Kelso shakes Ted's head vigorously)
Ted: I'm a LAWYER!!
Dr. Kelso: I said, should I play golf?
(Dr. Kelso shakes Ted's head again)
Ted: Ask again later! Why would I say that?
(Dr. Kelso shakes Ted's head even more and then cut back to J.D.)
J.D.: My daydreams are crazy.
Ted: Ohhhh...dizzy. (He falls onto a rack)
Private Dancer: Well, even though no one ever comes, every time I hit this nurse's button I feel a little better.
Dr. Kelso: That's morphine.
Private Dancer: That explains it.
J.D.: (Reading "Iraq War for Dummies" and talking to Turk on his cell) Turk, you know what's so messed up? I just got to the point where President Bush gave his gives his "Mission Accomplished" speech on a battleship, and I still got like 400 more pages to go!
J.D.: Come on, no-one wants to debate Iraq with me?
Janitor: I'll debate Iraq with you.
J.D.: Prepare to be dazzled.
Janitor: Ok. In my opinion we should be looking for Bin Laden in Pakistan.
J.D.: Do you have that globe near by?
(Janitor shakes his head and walks off)
The Janitor says "Ok. In my opinion we should be looking for Bin Laden in Pakistan". In fact Bin Laden was found and killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.

An Officer and a Gentleman
In the scene where Kelso imagines still being in the Navy and when he thinks about what he thought being a nurse would be like, the girl jumping into his arms and then him jumping into her arms alludes to the popular 1982 movie, "An Officer and a Gentleman", in which the protagonist "rescues" his lover from her workplace the exact same way.
Dr. Kelso: So, Pluto's not a planet anymore. What's up with that?
