      (Jordan walks in)

      Janitor: No ma'am.
      (Jordan walks out)
      Janitor: Angry woman out.

    • J.D.: Hey I'm glad I found you. I need your approval to cut down some lollipop trees outside the sea monkey hut.
      Denise: What are you talking about?
      J.D.: The decisions have to go through you because you're the mayor of crazy town.

    • J.D.: Wow. You look amazing.
      Elliot: Even in cookie pants?
      J.D.: Especially in cookie pants.

    • Dr. Cox: Oh God, no. You don't really think we're becoming friends, do you?
      Dr. Kelso: Good Lord, I hope not.

    • Elliot: Carla always says that making love with you is perfect.
      Turk: Yes she did.
      Elliot: Tell me what makes it so special. I mean, she says that you even cry sometimes.
      Turk: Thank you for sharing.
      Todd: It's okay, T-dog. If it doesn't hurt you're not doing it right.

    • Jordan: I'm introducing myself because anyone who had convinced Perry not to take the Chief of Medicine job has never met me.
      Dr. Kelso: That pansy-assed little tell-tale.
      Jordan: Bob, so help me God, you fix this or I will grab you by your muffin top and stomp on your withered man-parts until your eyes pop out.
      Dr. Kelso: Twenty years ago, I would have thrown you you on this table and made love to you, right here.
      Jordan: And I would have loved it.

    • Janitor: (to J.D.) Reminds me of what my grandpa taught me when I was a boy. He said, "Janitor. Every time an angry woman storms out another angry woman storms in".

    • J.D.: Hey. With Carla and Izzie out of town, it must be nice to have the place to yourself for once, huh?
      Turk: Dude. I can't answer that. How many people here are spies and are ordered to report everything I say back to Carla?
      (Everyone puts their hand up)
      J.D.: I should go.

    • J.D.: Endoscopy's a really painful invasive procedure.
      Denise: Who gives a crap?
      J.D.: Oh, I don't know, Joe, I think I do. Probably sounds crazy to you.
      Denise: Oh not crazy, just a little weird.

    • Dr. Cox: That was just the Board. They're offering me the Chief of Medicine job.
      Jordan: Shut up! Do you know what this means? That when I ask our nanny how she manages to raise her own kid without a nanny, I can hire a second nanny to listen to her boring answer.

    • Elliot: (to J.D.) Cookies are done. I baked a dozen for you and a dozen for me. Now I like to eat one and a half cookies every day, so a dozen cookies lasts 8 days. Well, 10 days, because I don't eat sugar on Wednesdays, and on Sundays I call my mom and she asks what's wrong with my phone because I sound fat.

    • J.D.'s narration: I was still trying to get my intern Joe to be more sensitive with her patients.
      Denise: Don't worry Mr. Hepburn. A lot of people are afraid of needles. I was only surprised because you're the first one I've come across that doesn't have a vagina.
      Denise: (to J.D.) Did you know that guy was a priest?

  • Allusions

    • Dr. Kelso's comment that he enjoys Dr. Cox's misery more than "comfy shoes and a warm place to crap" is a paraphrase of a controversial and racist remark made by former Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz in front of Pat Boone and John Dean on a flight to the Republican National Convention. The comment became so widely publicized that it forced Butz to resign his position.
