  • J.D. comes into his own as an intern at Sacred Heart and has to face continuing challenges.

    J.D. talks about how he feels as an intern and about competition. The stress hospital life has on interns is shown through Nick who quits at the end of the episode. However, before he cracks, Nick is shown to be quite the capable doctor. He is the classic side hero, the one who looks as though he is going to surpass J.D. in skill. He and J.D. have several clashes, in J.D's eyes at least, throughout the episode. Nick seems to come out on top each time but the stress of a little boy slowly dying under his care get's to him in the end. The lesson learned is that everyone goes through trials in life that they have to conquer.
