Set in the fictional Sacred Heart hospital in California, John "J.D" Dorian makes his way through the overwhelming world of medicine, with the help of his best friend, his fellow rookie doctors, and the arrogant, but brilliant attending physician he views as his mentor.

The third floor of the hospital, where this show was filmed, had been renovated to be offices for the crew and producers, and dressing rooms for the cast. The show's staff and cast were allowed to bring their dogs to work, and they all stay on the third floor. Donald Faison
(Turk) was not a fan of the dogs, and was seemingly left quite a few presents by the dogs right in front of his door. Actually, fellow cast member, Robert Maschio
(The Todd), collected the dog feces and placed them in front of Donald Faison's dressing room door. Maschio revealed this for the first time in a video for the DVD release of the show. It was put on the third season DVD special features. During Faison's interview, he was still unaware it was Maschio, and not the dogs leaving him the presents. 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
I need you to come upstairs and talk to a young black girl who will not let me call her mom.
Why would she listen to me?
I may have told her you were Kayne West.
I'm actually alright with that.
