  • Elliot gets sued for malpractice.

    Well basically in this episode, Elliot is just dealing with being cut off financially from her dad. She starts to pack her things, and move out from her apartment. She has a very unlucky day, when she arrives at the hospital and it turns out a patient she told had 9 months to live, is still alive 9 months later. Since the patient already "prepared" for his death, he is suing Elliot for malpractice. Finally they make Ted useful when he actually does work in this episode. Elliot starts to blame everyone else for the things that are going wrong in her life, once her life starts crumbling down piece by piece. JD outsmarts Cox when dealing with a patient, JD & Cox start competing who will cure the patient faster. They get 2 identical patients to work with. Carla starts judging Jordan & Cox's relationship, when she doesn't think that Jordan is right for him. She soon realizes she is too insecure about herself, that she starts judging other people. Jordan has a baby issue, but it gets resolved in the end. Elliot realizes she has to stop blaming other people and just deal with it. JD's patient ends up dying when he did the exact thing Cox did. By the end, it turns out it was purely out of luck. A serious JD/Cox conversation which we haven't seen in a while. All plots were pretty good. A good episode.
  • Elliot is forced to move out and also has to deal with a malpractice suit; J.D. shows up Dr. Cox and an unofficial competition begins between them.

    I really liked JD and Dr Cox and their 'unofficial competition'. Elliot's plot was also good, since her character is now finally developing. I really liked the thing about Jordan's pregnancy and couldn't wait for her baby to be born. Carla is a know it all in his episode and it really annoys me. This is the only episode that doesnt feature the Janitor and i really really missed him. It really wasn't my fave, but it had a great JD and Cox moment. But compared to other Scrubs episodes, this really isn't the best one. I still enjoyed parts of it though.
  • Fine example.

    Ever since her father cut her off financially, Elliot's been feeling the weight of the world on her back. While having to find a new affordable place to live, she also has to face the threat of being sued by a patient whom she told he had only eight months to live. Carla and Jordan hit a sore spot when Carla gives her opinion on Jordan and Perry's relationship.
    Meanwhile, J.D. has a fight with Dr. Cox and the two dispute over who gets to give the better treatment to two patients with the same prognosis.


    Elliot poor, good way to progress the season.
  • Elliot get's sued, Carla's a big know-it-all.

    One of Elliot's patients, whom she diagnosed as having a very short time to live, threatens to sure her. Out of pure anger she get's in an argument with the patient, really only making things worse. Even after she consults the hospitals legel council the damage is already done. Though it does provide the ever spastic and paranoid Elliot with some much needed growth she's still getting sued.

    Meanwhile, Carla has trouble staying out everyone's business and trying to dictate their actions. After she advises Dr. Cox that he shouldn't have gotten back together with his ex-wife the ever terrifying Jordan confronts her right back, very nastily and bossily. Seems Carla has finally met her match. Carla manages to grow a little to after she see's how happy Dr. Cox and Jordan actually are, despite their very odd situation.
  • A very good episode

    This whole episode is hilarious, with Dr Cox's poor decision to choose his ex-wife over Julie in a previous episode coming back to haunt Carla, JD getting a stroke of luck by coming up with a one in a million diagnosis and Elliot getting sued because her patient lived.

    The Janitor doesn't appear in this episode (probably for time) which is what prevented this episode from being 10 but that that doesn't mean this episode wasn't entertaining with the terrific Under Pressure song at the end which was a good choice for a song. The JD-Cox patient war was a fantastic plot aswell and truly made this episode a great watch.
