  • Cox, JD, and Turk have lady troubles.

    9.0
    Wow such a great ending to a good episode. This episode revolves around everyone's woman problems. Sarah Lancaster quest stars as the gift shop girl, Lisa. JD asks Lisa out on a date, but a problem arises when he can't get "it" up, because he feels as though the hospital is a monster, and it feeds on everyone's life. In this case, it fed on a lot people's love lives. Carla feels as though the magic is gone between her & Turk, when the sex isn't as great anymore. So they have relationship problems throughout the episode. Cox accidentally asks Jordan to move in with him, 'causing a whole lot of problems with him & Jordan. Jordan continues to be hormonal, and acting crazy. Meanwhile Elliot is homeless, and tries to find a place to live. She temporarily lives in the hospital, only to be kicked out by Kelso. Then she starts living in her moving van. JD offers her to live with him, she finally agrees. In the end, JD's problem isn't a problem anymore when he has sex with Elliot. The scene between Elliot & JD was amazing, it seems like they really connected, and it was nice to see them together again. Unfortunately, we know that they didn't work out last season, so I doubt they'll be working out this season. The Turk/Carla and Cox/Jordan relationship plots are both resolved by the end. A good episode, with a great concept, and a great ending that kept me guessing on what was going to happen in the next episode. Great episode overall.moreless
  • Turk and Carla have relationship problems, as do Dr. Cox and Jordan. J.D. Elliot is forced to live in the back of a truck as she has no time to find another place, and J.D. loses his mojo while dating Lisa the gift-shop girl.moreless

    In this episode, i really liked Elliot's plot. It's nice to see that she is now not depending on her father and his money anymore. I really dislike Lisa the Gift Shop girl. Not being she is JD's girlfriend, i just don't like her. There were other girlfriends on him i really did like! So, i'm glad that JD ended up in bed with Elliot in the end. I liked the storyline of Cox and Jordan. The Carla and Turk one, not so much. They've only been dating for a year and he already asks her to marry him? Only in TV land...

    Some jokes were really good though, but there were just a few plots i didn't enjoy that muchmoreless

    Giftshop girl, another stunner! Dont know how JD pulls it off, I should stick on a JD wig and hit the town to try my luck! Good episode overall, 9/10.moreless
  • Classic Episode: Laughed all the way through it "crazy lady say what - what - thatta girl hahaha very good

    9.5
    This is one of my all time favourite episodes for a number of reasons but the biggest reason being when JD and ELLIOT started there "love scene" i loved the song choice: The Coral - Dreaming Of You, This song was a perfect choice for the scene and i immeditaly stuck it on my sony walkman phone (i have over 300 songs) but i love this song. The greddy B*****D line from the janitor after jd walks past him and doesn't look up, the todd bit hows your p***s bit and kelso constantly in elliots face, does anyone know which episode and series it is when Dr Cox punches Kelso in the face please.moreless
  • Couples ahoy!

    7.8
    Dr. Cox and Jordan seem to be swimming along in their little dysfunctional relationship, as Jordan's pregnancy swims along. However, when Dr. Cox sort of unintentionally asks Jordan to move in with him in an effort to help her with her pregnancy things kind of snowball. She's calls him constantly, asks him for things endlessly, and pretty much just sorts to annoy him to end. But even though things are kind of a hassle Dr. Cox finds himself in a place where he wants to help Jordan and be there for her, even it is sometimes inconvienient.



    Turk and Carla run into a little trouble when she feels that they don't exactly have good reciprocation in the bedroom. Feeling that now their relationsip in in this dull place Carla does all she can to try and spice it and bring some romance to the situation but nothing seems to work. But as it turns out none of her efforts were actually needed, it's not that they are in a dull place. It's that they are in solid place where they don't need to try and impress eachother anymore they can simply fall asleep on the couch and it can be just as romantic.



    Jd runs into a little physical problem, even after he lands a rather attractive girl he has somewhat of a crush on. As hard as he tries ironicly he can't seem to make their dates work. However, when Elliot moves into his apartment temporarily due to her current financial and living situation he finds that his little problem suddenly isn't a problem anymore.moreless

    • Turk: What'd you page me to the roof for?
      Carla: Well, I was thinking that you work so hard... And that if I want surprise and romance that maybe it's my turn to be the one who brings it. So, I brought us a couple of salads...
      Turk(unenthusiastically): That's great.
      Carla: ...a box of thirty-six hot-wings...
      Turk: Now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout!
      Carla: ...and some blue cheese dressing!
      Turk: I LOVE THIS WOMAN!

    • Elliot: Hey.
      J.D.: Is this where you're sleeping tonight?
      Elliot: Yeah, so? It's, uh, it's cozy... Hospital-adjacent.
      J.D.: Elliot! Come on! This is crazy - you're living out of a van like a hobo... or Jewel.
      Elliot: Her poetry changed my life.

    • Turk: I mean, I consider myself a really romantic guy who's just a little stressed out. And I thought the one person who'd understand that would be Carla.
      Dr. Cox: You know what the weird thing is, is that I'm actually trying this time.
      Turk: I just wonder if I'm what she really wants.
      Dr. Cox: I just wonder if I'll ever be able to make it work out with anyone.
      J.D.: My peep's on the fritz.
      Turk: Dude!
      Dr. Cox: Oh, poor Newbie.
      J.D.: No, no! No, no, no, no! No, I'm talking about you guys! 'Cause y-y-y-you guys are like-you guys are like my peeps, you're my dawgs, and you on the fritz. So, there-that's where I get "peeps"/"fritz" came from.
      Dr. Cox: God love you, Newbie. Thank you for... giving me some perspective.

    • Dr. Cox: Okay. I'm going to engage you two in a conversation. And you speak of it to no one, agreed?
      J.D.: Okay...?
      Dr. Cox: It has gotten to the point where I'm starting to go back in my head over all my old relationships. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm going to sit here and count up all the women I've ever slept with...
      Turk: Twelve.
      J.D.: Nine.
      Dr. Cox: Eighteen. But not one of them ever really understood me.

    • J.D.'s Narration: You never expect a cliché to be an actual conversation starter.
      Turk: Women! Huh?
      Dr. Cox: Tell me about it.
      J.D.: It's like they're from another planet!

    • Carla: Don't let him get to you! Just keep saying positive things to yourself.
      Elliot: It's too much! I'm just one person!
      Carla: Atta girl!

    • Dr. Kelso: Dr. Reid! I have no reading material for my daily post-lunch...well, let's just call it "reading session." I need your research proposal. Or a Vanity Fair if you have one.
      Elliot: Dr. Kelso, if I could just get... a little more time on that-
      Dr. Kelso: Oh, I'm sorry, sweetheart. I'm fresh out of special treatment today. I used it all trying not to stare at that albino doctor down in Radiology.

    • Jordan: Listen, Perry, shockingly, I'm not really looking to make the permanent move to your little bachelor cave over there at Swingers Towers. What happened is, is you made a kind gesture, and I made the mistake of thinking you could follow actually through with it.

    • J.D.'s Narration: Luckily for me, I had a friend I could talk to about anything.
      J.D.: Hey, Turk. Do you ever have any trouble getting your manhood going?
      Turk: Hell, no!
      J.D.: Heh, heh. Me neither, dawg!

    • Lisa: So you think you're in, huh?
      J.D.: Oh, come on, I am so in.
      Lisa: Come on, you can't be sure.
      J.D.: No, I feel pretty good about it. You want me.
      Lisa: I don't!
      J.D.: Uh, yeah, I'm a doctor; all the symptoms are there - you do.

    • J.D.: I had a really good time tonight.
      Lisa: I gotta tell you, I was a little nervous when you spent the first five minutes talking through a napkin.
      J.D.: Oh, that wasn't me - that was Nappy, The Ice-Breaking Puppet.
      Lisa: Oh!
      J.D.: That little guy earned his money tonight.

    • Turk: Oh, hell yeah!... Did I fall asleep?
      Carla: Yes.
      Turk: Was that before or after I rocked your world?
      Carla: He's a good man, he's a good man, he's a good man...
      Turk: Baby, you know I get nervous when you start chanting.
      Carla: Turk, what happened to all my stuff? The massage? The back, the feet? I let you watch 'The Jeffersons'!
      Turk: Baby, I was... just exhausted from work.
      Carla: Well, when you were an intern you were always exhausted from work, but you always made time for romance.
      Turk: Oh, that's 'cause I was still trying to get into your delicates.

    • Dr. Cox: Look, please don't think I'm impressed because you managed to score a sympathy date with whatever homely-looking chick is managing the gift shop nowadays.
      Lisa: J.D.! You ready to go?
      J.D.: Oh, yeah, the word you're looking for is "Wow." And the words I'm looking for are "In your face."

    • J.D.: I find, with the ladies, if you're clear with your intentions right off the bat, they just fall in to place. A.Q.?
      Dr. Cox: What!?
      J.D.: "A.Q." is sort of a new, hip expression - means "Any questions?"

    • J.D.: You know, Perry-
      Dr. Cox: "Perry"?
      J.D.: Yeah, I'm trying it out.

    • J.D.: All right, Mrs. Carlson, the surgeon that's gonna come by and do your lymph node dissection is a very handsome young man, so I don't want you to forget about me, okay? I'm serious, you naughty girl!

    • Dr Kelso takes Elliot's flier down
      Elliot: But, sir! Only one person took a phone number... so far!
      Todd: Someone's getting a late-night drunk call from The Todd.
      J.D.: Lucky girl.
      Todd: Yeah!

    • Turk: Baby. Do you realize how long it's been since we've had an afternoon off, just the two of us?
      Carla: Yeah....
      Turk: I mean, I'm thinking I should give you a sensual massage... rub your feet a little... and maybe, if you're interested, sex you up and what-not!
      Carla: Come here.
      Turk: I'll get the TV.
      Carla: No, you know what? Leave it on. I know how much you like 'The Jeffersons'.
      Turk: Baby, you're a gift from God!

    • Dr. Cox: Just start Ancef 1 gram Q 8 hours, and oh, my God, did I just ask my ex-wife to move in with me?
      J.D.: Mmm-hmm.
      Laverne glares at him
      J.D.: What? You don't own that!

    • Jordan: You know what I hate?
      Dr. Cox: So many things...
      Jordan: That's true. I stay at your house almost every night, and even though I feel like crap in the morning, I've gotta drive all the way back to my apartment to get ready and then drive all the way back here to go to board meetings.
      Dr. Cox: Well, then, why don't you just leave your boobs and some other stuff at my place?

    • Dr. Cox: You know, Jordan, I have to tell you - despite how crazy-hormonal you are, there is something about a pregnant woman that's almost spiritual.
      Jordan: Really?
      Dr. Cox: Honestly you-you have never looked so beautiful.
      Jordan: It's the giant boobs, isn't it?
      Dr. Cox: Well, have you seen them lately?
      Jordan: Yes. Relax.
      J.D.: I've seen bigger.
      Laverne shoots him a look.
      J.D.: No, not you. Although, kudos!

    • J.D.'s Narration: Dry spell, prepare to be moistened!
      J.D.: Hey, Lisa! How you doin'?
      Lisa: J.D., I can't give you free gum.
      J.D.: Free gum- No! You know, I was just thinking, you're probably one of those girls that's so pretty that no one ever has the courage to ask you out.
      Lisa: No, I get asked out all the time.
      J.D.'s Narration: Okay, momentary set-back. Regroup. Regroup!
      J.D.: Hey, go out with me... It's the right thing to do.
      Lisa: Sure, why not.
      Choir: Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
      J.D.: Very funny, you dumb choir punks! Santa's a drunk!

    • Choir Director: Okay, boys, remember, now: When we get upstairs, it's the trauma ward, not the "drama ward," so smiles, everyone. Smiles.

    • J.D.: Okay! So I'm in a bit of a dry spell... I have no idea what to do with myself.
      Turk: Why don't you give Rowdy a bath - he smells a little ripe.

    • Turk: I know we put on a hell of a show, but, dude, put some shades on or something!
      J.D.: Let's not make a big deal out of this.
      Carla: J.D., when was the last time you got laid?
      J.D.'s Narration: Okay, just subtly take the spotlight off yourself.
      J.D.: Once, on a red-eye flight, Turk groped a trans-sexual.
      Turk: Baby, it was dark, and he/she had a body that was rockin'!

    • Turk: I want you to turn gift shop girl into gift shop woman.
      J.D.: I swear on all the gifts in her shop, I will make you proud.

    • Carla: Aren't you gonna get that?
      Elliot: Nah, it's just Todd. He's already called, like, four times to ask if I want to move into his pants.

    • J.D.'s narration: I know we seem insensitive, but in a crunch-time, most guys are smart enough to say the right thing.
      Turk: Baby... you have got to chill!
      Dr. Cox: I'm sorry, um... crazy person says what?
      Jordan: What!?
      Dr. Cox: Thatta girl.

    • J.D.'s narration: So, Little J.D. isn't rising to the occasion. It's not a big deal! Nobody knows about this but me!
      Dr. Cox: Hey, Newbie, what's up?
      J.D.: Everything! Everything's up!
      Dr. Kelso: Rise and shine, sport!
      J.D.'s narration: What, did someone send out a flier?!
      Todd: Hey, J.D.! How's your penis?
      J.D.'s narration: All right, calm down, he says that to everyone.
      Todd: Hey, Goldman! How's your penis?

    • Elliot: Huh! I put all those fliers up, and nobody wants me to live with them!
      J.D.: Oh, come on, Elliot. I'm sure you'll eventually find a roommate who's a... clean, non-smoking vegetarian that rinses the shower thoroughly after each usage.
      Elliot: Oh, well, if you don't, it gets mildewy.
      J.D.: You know, you should move in with my friend: Anal McLooney.

    • Elliot: Yeah, well, pretty don't pay the rent!
      Carla: It does for my sister.
      Elliot: Oh, my God, your sister's a prostitute!?
      Carla: She's a model. Come on, Elliot, we talked about thinking before we speak.

    • Janitor: (Walks up, dumps change on table) There's your stupid dollar. And by the way, your new nickname is "PeePee LeFritz." Enjoy.

    • J.D.'s Narration: Okay, you're freaking out! Just keep your head down, and move.
      Janitor: Oh I get it. I haven't paid you back so you won't even look at me?
      J.D.: No.
      Janitor: Its been one day, you greedy little bastard!

    • (J.D. kissing his date Lisa)
      Lisa: Is that a roll of quarters in your pocket or are you just having a really good time?
      J.D.: Actually it's a roll of quarters... laundry day!
      Lisa: Oh.
      J.D.: See ya.

    • Dr. Kelso: Dr. Reid, what are you doing in here?
      Elliot: Sorry, hi Dr. Kelso, I was just, um ah, I was on call.
      Dr. Kelso: Well I have the call sheet right here and your name doesn't seem to be on it. But what do I know. I'm just a kindly old man that doesn't know the difference between a doctor on call and one who maybe just needs a warm bed for the night.
      Elliot: Oh I've just been so swamped with work, I couldn't even make time to find a new place.
      Dr. Kelso: I understand. Life is hard and all of that. But, if you want a bed in my hospital, you better have a damn rent check or a massive coronary in the next five seconds, and believe me missy, either one's fine with me.
      Elliot: Thank you, sir?
      Dr. Kelso: No problem.

    • Dr. Cox: (On the phone with Jordan again) Jordan if you're feeling like crap then I'll come straight home... of course with the food. No, I don't necessarily know if there is anything bigger than a super-size but I'll ask the guy - Oh my God!

    • J.D.: I can't stop obssessing about this date I have tonight. What do you think I should do?
      Dr. Cox: Well for starters you should probably go ahead and thank your lucky stars that you finally found a gal that's into same-sex relationships.

    • Dr. Cox(On the phone with Jordan): Sure Jordan, I guess you can take over the master bathroom, but would you do me a favor and leave my sleeping pills out in case when I get home I wanna take three hundred of them?

    • Dr. Kelso: (To J.D. and Elliot talking) Can anybody tell me the bacterial etiology of toxic shock syndrome? Oh, I beg your pardon, so many doctors standing around I assumed it was rounds, but you were looking at the wall so that means it's an art exhibit. When does the gay gentlemen come around with the tray of champange?
      Elliot: Sir, my father cut me off...
      Dr. Kelso: Dr. Reid, this is not bring your problems to work day, this is just work day.

    • Dr. Cox: Newbie, when a patient has an infection, I make it a policy not to push on it.

    • Janitor: (Hand in vending machine) Come to papa.
      J.D.: (Coughs)
      Janitor: Yeah, the ah, coil didn't complete its revolution. My candy's just hangin' there instead of droppin'.
      J.D.: Aha, okay whatever. If you're hungry man I can loan you a buck.
      Janitor: A buck! What a kind offer from the charitable doctor money-bags.
      J.D.: Look you can either be a jerk as usual, or you can accept this gracious offer and get some caramel draped in nougat. Your choice, jumpsuit.

    • J.D.: Good morning Dr. Cox!
      Dr. Cox: Hahaha Denise, I know it's morning. If it was last night I'd still be with my extremely pregnant ex-wife trying to get her to calm down with a chair and a whip because, believe it or not, I somehow managed to forgot to bring home the curly fries. Do you see where I'm going here? Yes, no, maybe so? (whistles) Doctor?
