How to feed yourself AND pay tuition
20 April 2013 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

My Fruit Cups" is a realistic episode about financial pressures that medical students face as roommates Turk and J.D. periodically fill their trunk with hospital food - specifically fruit cups and pudding - to help make ends meet. The janitor is making J.D. sweat over this issue since he tells him he is investigating a number of thefts at the hospital. Only later do we find out he is investigating the theft of drugs, not food. Elliot, who up to now has had no financial problems since her father has been footing the entire bill, finds out that his generosity comes with a price - Her dad believes he has purchased the right to tell her what medical specialty to enter into. Meanwhile, Jordan, Cox' ex-wife has returned, obviously pregnant, but who is the father?
