As an experiment, the season five finale, "My Transition", was finished and aired in High Definition. This was the first network show to complete an on-line edit in Final Cut Pro SD, and with this episode, became the first network show to online in High Definition in Final Cut Pro. However, the show continued to be produced in Standard Definition. According to Producer Randall Winston
: "After a lot of teasing, yes, the HD was an experiment, for everyone really. We will not be doing any more HD, there is a cost that no one is interested in covering, and there is debate, not amongst us here at the show, about how the quality stands up. I don't think that we can get the look that the show is designed around by using tape." See more
The x-ray with the show's title shown in the beginning is turned the wrong way: the heart should be seen on the right hand side. This was an intentional mistake put in by creator Bill Lawrence
to represent the core idea of the show: young doctors in over their heads. Bill Lawrence reminds viewers that this goof was completely intentional in interviews, DVD commentaries, and virtually any other available opportunity. See more

Oh, and Ginger, by the way - just a real smooth move runnin' to your mommy.
Yeah, your mommy cah-rushed me today. I'm serious.
[to the various doctors and patients in the busy hospital
Uh, I'd like to issue a warning to everybody, and I'm dead serious. FYI, JD's mommy has made it perfectly clear she doesn't want her daughter picked on. Nothing mean, she's a precious flower, and we should all be super-nice to her.
