  • Pride.

    A topic that was mentioned throughout the episode. Turk was too proud to admit that his patient listened to a free clinic doctor instead of him. JD was too proud to tell everyone he didn't know what jiggly ball was. Carla was too proud to take Turk's last name, and Elliot was too proud to accept help from her friends to get her job back. In this episode, JD has to introduce Kelso at a dinner. Meanwhile everyone finds out that Elliot is working at the free clinic. Her friends want to help her but she wont accept the help. Meanwhile Cox has a patient that needs to be put on the drug trials but Kelso gives it to a rich guy, while Cox's patient is left to die slowly. Everyone pretends to know the game, jiggly ball, so JD can be hit by a lot of tennis balls. I think this episode delved in to Kelso's personal life, in the end Kelso was too proud to show an ounce of care for the dead patient. I'm loving the friendship dynamic they have had this season, last season, it seemed as though everyone had gone there separate ways, in this episode, you see everyone together. Elliot's problem is solved when she finds out Kelso has an STD, and he doesn't want anyone to find out, so she gets her job back at Sacred Heart. It's good that things are coming back to normal. Great episode and great character analysis.
