Janitor meets a patient suffering from locked-in syndrome; when his computer, his sole method of communication, breaks, Janitor decides to spend time with him to keep him company. Janitor then helps Carla hold a patient's legs down after an intern makes a mistake and the patient has a seizure. Janitor boasts the story throughout the hospital, until he overhears one doctor explaining how Janitor is telling everyone the story because he never usually makes a difference around the hospital.

Janitor tries to fix the patient's computer and breaks it further. Then, at the end of the day, the patient receives a new computer from Dr. Cox. He uses the new computer to say, "Thank you."

QuotesEdit

5x19-Cox Rants
Dr. Cox launches into a rant.
Andyman14Added by Andyman14
You're black? Because last time I checked you have a nerdy white best friend, you enjoy Neil Diamond, and you damn sure act like a black guy. These, my friend, are all characteristics of white guys. And, please understand, I'm a huge supporter of the NAACP and if you don't know what that stands for, it's the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People...and quite frankly, I always thought they should change the "Colored People" to "African-Americans", but then of course it wouldn't be the NAACP, it would be the N Quad A or 'NAAAA', and I know, this probably sounds like a digression, but actually leads me back to my point: do I think you're black? Naaaaaaahhhhhh!Dr. Cox

Dr. Turk is unaware that Lonnie used to play All-Conference at Villanova.Laverne
Laverne, would you go ahead and thank what's his name for me.Dr. Cox
Jesus?
That's him.

TriviaEdit

  • Dr. Cox calls J.D. "Carol" for the fifth time.
  • The flashback Elliot experiences should have her hair being darker and Carla's hair longer.
