  • Quotes

    • J.D.: Even though I'm a man, I don't like beer. I prefer Appletinis, they make me feel fancy.

    • J.D.'s narration: When Carla dies heaven is going to suck!

    • Ed: When you disrespect someone, and they in turn burn your ass, you must RECOGNIZE!

    • J.D.: (to George) We fight death for a living every single day. We can't let it know we're afraid of it, or it'll kick our ass.

    • Denise: Meet me in the on-call room, pants down, lights off.
      Chubby Guy: I just wanna say I am so psyched that you called me back.
      Denise: No! No talking. And if you touch me too much, God help me, I will head-butt you again.
      Chubby Guy: (whispers) I love you.

    • Ted: Hey, Mr. Valentine. I re-did your will on a computer. And to make it less depressing, I used a fun font.

    • Jordan: (to Dr. Maddox) Can we go? Cougars only drink free 'til nine.

    • J.D.: I didn't play sports, per se, George, I was the mascot for the girls' volleyball team.
      George: Really? Wear a costume?
      J.D.: Oh, great costume. I wore a bandanna and a half-shirt. At away games I wore spurs, which, in retrospect, is sort of weird 'cause we weren't The Cowboys.

    • George: So what happened to dinner?
      J.D.'s narration: We didn't want George to feel he was a burden, so we had to come up with a great excuse.
      Turk: Giant oak tree fell on the restaurant.

    • Dr. Maddox: I'm the Chief of Medicine.
      Jordan: I'm the chief of slag-smacking, so I'd keep moving if I were you.

    • J.D.: I need you to connect with your patients, okay? If they need some sympathy, dig down in your soul and find some.
      Denise: Yo, Mr. Harris! Sucks you'll never walk again.
      Mr. Harris: Hell yeah, it does!
      Denise: Better, right?
      J.D.: No, no, Jo. He...he lost his feet.

    • Turk: Who behaves that way at a mini mart?
      J.D.: I'm sorry Turk, but when I put that single beer down on the counter and that 18-year-old checkout kid is like, "Oh, big night?" it just pissed me off, you know. I mean, who is he to judge us? He needs to know we're not two lame-o's with nothing going on.
      Turk: So that's why you bought the box of condoms and the flare gun.
      J.D.: Exactly. Now whenever he thinks of us he'll picture us splitting a beer, sexing up the ladies, and shooting off flares. You know, like men do!
      Turk: That does sound pretty awesome.
      J.D.: I knew you'd come around.
