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.
Did You Know?
Through the first season, the cast and crew, especially Writer and Creator Bill Lawrence
, were so sure that the series would be cancelled by the end of the season, that a plot twist was created for use when they'd have a forced series finale. This plot twist noted the fact that The Janitor (Neil Flynn
) never directly spoke, nor was spoken to by any other character than J.D. (Zach Braff
). Therefore, The Janitor would be a complete figment of J.D.'s imagination. This idea was kept up into the second season, still in fear of cancellation, until Flynn asked Lawrence to be able to finally interact with another cast member on the series. Although Elliot (Sarah Chalke) throws a cup at him in the sixth episode, and sarcastically says "SORRY!", in episode eleven, he gets punched on the balls by a little girl, and in episode fifteen, The Janitor teases the nurse with the vacuum cleaner. In episode twenty the janitor talks a patient of J.D.'s into getting surgery. See more
Dr. Kelso's position as chief of medicine would preclude him from taking such a hands-on day to day role in the hospital, particularly in training the interns. This would be handled by a lower level staff member such as Dr. Cox. See more
