    JD's brother returns... again. He still has no life and has absolutely nothing going for him. He wants to hook up with Elliot again, but Elliot doesn't want to because she's with Kieth and she knows that he has nothing going on with his life. This whole episode is about sparing someone's feelings. Sometimes you just have to tell the truth to save someone, or be brutally honest, whichever. Meanwhile JD has a heavy patient, and tries to spare his feelings when the patient is to big for the MRI machine. Elliot wanting to make fake babies was hilarious! JD telling Dan the truth was nice, since Dan finally looked like he was going to make a change in his life. Carla & Turk are thinking of baby names, but when it becomes too real for them, they decide to leave their baby unnamed. Some emotional and funny scenes in this episode, definitely had some character development on Dan's part. A great episode overall.moreless

    I saw this episode on syndication not too long ago. I have got to agree that this episode made me laugh non stop



    Dan, J.D's brother returns unexpected, he goes under a love triangle with Elliot but she's got her lover Keith. Elliot decides not to have Keith's baby and Dan wants more to his life so he gets a job interview. Meanwhile, with Carla pregnant, she and Turk are deciding on baby names. They agree that Angie would be a good name for a girl but still undecided on the boy's name until they agree on George. They also promised not to mention the baby's name but Turk let it slip and J.D had it mentioned to other people. Then they realize that it's weird if it becomes real and they decided not to have those names. Elsewhere in the hospital, a patient can't fit in the MRI machine so he's taken to the zoo, which is humiliating. Dr. Kelso is nice for a change and J.D is happy to get some rest



    My two favorite parts are when J.D daydreamed what it would be like if they found out if Turk and Carla's baby was gay The other being when Turk slapped J.D's stomach multiple times causing a rash and signs his name on his stomach. These two events made me laugh!moreless
  • Dan's back in town and automatically assume's that Elliot wants to start things up again from "My Common Enemy", but to save him from being hurt (because she's with Keith) he tells her she wants Babues, one thing Dan doesn't want.moreless

    8.6
    First of all, this was a good episode, not as good as others, but still good. I suppose the 8.6 rating came because i didn't really find the Carla/Turk storyline interesting. But the other two i did. I liked the conclusion between Cox and Kelso, which i thought was nice; especially when Kelso admits that his son is a good kid, despite him turning out in a way he hadn't of hoped.



    One thing i must say about Dan's character is that... man what was he wearing, some sort of clown make up. Seriously, no offence to homosexuals but he did look gay in this episode.



    Anyway, i pretty tired so i'm going to wrap it up. Sorry it's not a better review. Good episode.moreless
  • Dan's back, and Turk and Carla pick out baby names, only to have a revelation.

    9.0
    Argh, JD\'s brother Dan is back. I hate that guy! He annoys me to death.



    The storyline between Carla and Turk naming their babies was interesting. Especially how once they came up with names, the reality of having a baby really struck them, and they realised that being parents was going to be hard job.



    I like how all the characters are growing. Elliot wouldn\'t usually be this assertive, though she\'s still insecure, and JD wouldn\'t usually tell people close to him the truth, like he did to his brother.



    Highlights of the episode:

    * Elliot\'s insecurities leading to the amusing roleplay between her and Keith

    * Elliot\'s hair!!

    * \"You\'re like House without the limp\"

    * The baby gay test - funny!moreless
  • Turk and Carla pick baby names

    8.9
    My favourite plot in this episode is the one where Turk and Carl name the unborn child Angie and George (though at the end they change their mind since Carla used to know a mean teacher named George and Turk used to know a prostitute named Angie) and Turk has some very funny moments throughout.



    Dr Cox and Ted are teriffic in the episode aswell, with Cox's 5-time insult speech about Ted and Ted trying to have a staring contest.



    The main plot which was also quite entertaining about Dan coming back had some very interesting moments in which Dan and JD actually seem to respect each other and the ending shows that people can change.moreless

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Featured Music:
      "Still Fighting It" by Ben Folds
      "Macho Man" by Village People

    • When Elliot walks into Herbert's room to tell him that they need to take him to the zoo for an MRI, the clock on the wall reads around 8:05. Two scenes ago, when Carla and Turk are trying to come up with a new potential name for their daughter, the time is shown to be 8:50.

    • When Turk suggests "Honor" as another name for a daughter to Carla and they realize it's too easy to make fun of, the clock on the wall reads around "8:50." However, a few scenes ago when J.D. tries to convince Elliot to lie to Dan about her interest in him, the time is shown to be around 8:05. We know it's still the same day, because Dr. Cox and Ted are taking a break from their work.

    • When J.D. lies again to Dan, saying Elliot didn't want to get involved with Dan because she knew he didn't want to have kids, the clock outside reads a little past 5:10. Herbert tells J.D. not to worry about it, and the show goes into a commercial break.
      When the show starts again, we see J.D. running around, trying to find Elliot before Dan. When J.D. finds Elliot in Herbert's room, the clock outside reads around 8:05. If J.D. was in such a rush, there's no reason it should have taken him three hours to find her.

    • When J.D. asks the interns what to do about the Herbie situation, you can see a woman in the background getting close to him as if she was going to talk to him but when the camera angle changes she is gone.

    • The janitor says he is going to make a hamster-vest for one of his squirrels with the dead hamster Angie. However in episode 4 (My First Kill) of season 4, the janitor trades his squirrel army for a stuffed dog that looks like Rowdy from a taxedermist on the internet. So is this a mistake or has the janitor started a new army of tiny squirrels? However, the Janitor has never told the truth except at very rare points, this does not feel like one of them.
      Likely the hamster and any squirrel that he has will be used in some plan to undermine J.D.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Dr. Cox: You know, Bobbo, I find you less repungent of late. Dare I say I'm developing a begrudging indifference to you.
      Dr. Kelso: You're so edgy and cantankerous. You're like House without the limp.

    • Dr. Cox: Since Sweaty Teddy here backs up his infinitesimal knowledge of the law with absolutely zero knowledge of medicine, one of you is going to have to help him go through the claims deciphered for the medical stuff and somehow relay all of that into his tiny peanut brain. Ted, how many times did I insult you during that speech, I was shooting for five?
      Ted: Only three unless you count "Sweaty Teddy" as an insult but my mom calls me that and she loves me, right?
      Dr. Cox: No Ted, she hates you. Four. Since Ted has no life and that is five.

    • Dan: So you got the baby fever, huh?
      Elliot: Yeah, hopefully I'm already pregnant with Keith's child.
      Keith: Oh come on! I'm 25. I haven't even been to Europe.

    • Turk: You know what name I have always liked for a girl? Honor.
      Carla: Turk, you know how mean boys are. They would be all like: I got Honor. Did you get Honor?
      Turk: Yeah everybody got Honor. She is easy!
      Carla:It is your daughter!
      Turk: Yes it is.

    • Ted: What's a "Buckland"?
      Dr. Cox: It is a predominately hairless growth that is never found on women.
      Ted: Weird.
      Dr. Cox: It's your last name Ted.
      Ted: Good one!

    • Elliot: Mmm we don't want any distractions while we're trying to make a baby.
      Keith: Ok, you gotta stop saying that.
      Elliot: Look Keith we're role-playing alright? This is not real. Now let's just do this.
      Keith: Alright.
      Elliot: Promise you'll hold me like this when I'm pushing your baby out my bajingo?
      Keith: Alright, I'm putting on a third condom.

    • Jordan: What's going on?
      Ted: I love you too dumpling, but I have to work late. I'll make it up to you this weekend.
      Dr. Cox: Ted's on the phone with his mom, so we're taking five.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • When Turk and Carla are discussing baby names. They initially decided if they had a boy, it would be named George but if it was a girl, it would be Angie. Ironically, there's an inside joke running amongst those names because those are the names of the main husband-wife couple on the "George Lopez Show". This is true especially when Turk mention George's smile and Carla mentions Angie's curvy hair.

    • House M.D.:
      Kelso calls Dr. Cox 'so edgy and cantankerous you're like House without the limp' referring to House, the doctor who is advertised to 'play by his own rules', much like Cox who limps around with a cane.

    • Herbie:
      One of J.D.'s patient's is named Herbie. JD calls Herbie, "Love Bug," alluding to the famous Disney #53 VW Beetle vehicle. The patient is quite obese and when J.D. asks Herbie how he is feeling, Herbie responds saying: "Fully Loaded", "Herbie: Fully Loaded" was the name of the most recent installment of the Herbie movie series, starring Lindsay Lohan.
