The show has some connections to the abbreviation "TCW". Donald Faison
starred in Remember the Titans
(2000), whose high school was "TCW". J.D. dated a girl, who was called "TCW" (Tasty Coma Wife), and then it is shown in season six, episode fourteen, "My No Good Reason", as being from a school with the initials "TCW". 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
