While watching SportsCenter, Turk sees Kevin Everett cure himself of paralysis through a new procedure called cold therapy. J.D. proceeds to walk in and stare blankly at the show, never having seen it before in his life. J.D. falls into his usual fantasy zone and imagines himself on SportsCenter as the official worst athlete ever.
Applying what he sees on television to his medical practice, Turk decides to apply "cold therapy" to a child suffering from paralysis when realizing he does not have the heart to tell the patient's father the diagnosis. He runs the risk of lawsuit, but Carla advises him to imagine the patient as his own child and to do whatever is necessary no matter the consequence.
Meanwhile, Cox and Janitor struggle with their relationships. Cox' girlfriend is uncomfortable with Cox wearing his wedding band, while Janitor's girlfriend refuses to hold hands with him, ironically happening the day after Janitor taunted Cox about his growing relationship with his lady friend. Both seek Elliot's advice but inevitably end up teasing her, because she can't even maintain a steady relationship with Ted. Janitor contemplates immediate break-up to avoid being dumped first.
In the end, all's well that ends well at Sacred Heart Hospital. The boy with paralysis regains finger movement in his hands. Janitor becomes more attracted to his girlfriend who avoided hand holding because she's germophobic: "You're weird. I like that." Problems are ameliorated between Cox and Jordan, when Jordan agrees to wear her ring too.
