Trivia

Turk uses the electrical defibrillation paddles to "shock" an apparently unconscious patient, who immediately wakes up screaming in pain, apparently not having been unconscious at all. That patient was played by Vinko Bogataj, the Slovenian ski jumper whose disastrously unsuccessful ski jump attempt was made famous in the opening title sequence of ABC's television sport news show ABC's Wide World of Sports (1961).

Goofs

Dr. Kelso tells JD to keep a female patient on dialysis, and not put her on the transplant list, because she doesn't have insurance. In the U.S., all patients who have kidney failure and are on dialysis are eligible for Medicare, which also pays for a kidney transplant. See more »

Quotes

J.D.: How's it going?
Janitor: I'm 37 years old and I'm a janitor. How do you think it's going?
J.D.: Now there is nothing wrong with being a janitor.
Janitor: Really? Thank you. You've turned my life around. I have to go tell my janitor wife and all my janitor kids that life is worth living. And that comes straight from our hero, Dr. Whozits, Dr. Nothing. No, seriously, come on. You can come over to my humble house and point out things that are cheap.

first day
23 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's the first day for new interns John Dorian, Chris Turk and Elliot Reid. Both John "J.D." Dorian and Elliot are medical interns, whereas Chris Turk is one of the new surgical intake. J.D. and Turk are long established best friends, but they meet Elliot for the first time, thought it is certainly not the last time they spend time together! Throughout their first day, the interns are forced to face the realities of working in a hospital, and the pressures that go with it. They're aided by a few kooky characters, like the iconic Dr Perry Cox and the sweet but feisty Nurse Carla Espinosa. It's an eye-opening experience for all 3 interns, but ultimately their first day is a success and the series Pilot is a hit.
