Did You Know?


In the second photo shoot, director Bill Lawrence is visible in the close up when Carla and the Janitor are speaking (he's on the top row above Carla's left shoulder), but then he appears laying down on the ground in front when the camera pans out as the photo is about to be taken. See more »


Dr. Kelso rolls down the hall and crashes after the Janitor attaches wheels to his shoes. But the first time, when he's out of control, the roller-skates he's actually wearing are visible. See more »


J.D.: [about Mr. Jenkins] I know, he's homeless and smells like an obese man's twosie...

User Reviews

Good, mostly set in the Hospital. Best one line quote.
7 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

J.D. rides to work on a mini motorcycle, because his scooter is in the workshop.- Janitor is having a bath on the roof and Todd tries to join him. Todd ends up with a 4 story high wedgie by the Janitor.- Elliot's patient is suffering from abdominal pains. Not knowing how to treat him, hands him over to Turk. He suggests exploratory surgery. Turk finds nothing wrong with the patient.- J.D.'s patient is dying and there is nothing they can do for her. He makes a rookie mistake in telling her this and Dr Cox tells him so, almost to his delight.- J.D. is doing a lot of day dreaming, including his Dr. Acula story.- Carla is organising the staff annual photograph, but why does the Janitor ruin it for her by shining sun light from a mirror into the camera. Could it be that he wasn't included.- J.D. gets advice from Dr. Kelso,about his terminally ill patient and her age.-- Giving Carla and Turk's baby making a rest. No appearance of Ted an Jordan in this episode. Set all in the hospital.

Best lines/quote: Turk,to his surgery patient; "mind if I cut you open", followed by them both screaming "aaahhh". Cox to J.D. about their dying female patient; "Never make assumptions based on your own perceptions". I think this is the best one line quote, from the season.
