Goofs

When Turk opens the door for his brother you can see his coat hanging on the hook on the wall next to the door. The camera then cuts to J.D. and when it goes back to Turks brother you can see that the coat is no longer hanging on the hook. Then the camera goes wide to show all three characters and the coat is back on the hook. The camera changes angles a couple more times and the next time you see the hook the coat is gone again.

Quotes

A reminder
10 April 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

The wrap up to this episode is a reminder of how very well written and how very serious this show can be. Dick Van Dyke plays an aged doctor so out of touch with modern medical methods that he almost costs a patient his life. JD has the sad duty of letting Dr. Kelso (Ken Jenkins) know what is going on, and Kelso has a heart-to-heart with Van Dyke in the show's closing moments that is at once heart-breaking and ennobling. We get to see Kelso at his absolute professional best, just this one time. And Van Dyke's reaction to what Kelso tells him may surprise you. It wasn't what I expected, for sure. Van Dyke and Jenkins are at the top of their form.
