J.D. and TurkEdit

After a day at the park with Sammy, J.D. reaffirms his decision to move closer to Kim. He quickly finds a new apartment nearby. One day when dropping Sammy off at Kim's hospital, J.D. runs into St. Vincent's Hospital's Chief of Medicine Dr. Mantoots who offers him the position of Residency Director. Back at Sacred Heart, J.D. informs his friends that he has decided to leave Sacred Heart and take the new job which pays slightly better and is much closer to Sammy. Dr. Cox is so happy that he attempts to do a back flip, but falls on his face. Later during the day, J.D. and Turk argue whether a patient, Mrs. Gallin should be treated surgically or medically. J.D. at first mocks Turk's more professional approach, but J.D. gets really upset when Turk starts claiming that his decisions are more important because he is the Chief of Surgery. The next morning, Turk sends Mrs. Gallin to surgery without discussing it with J.D.. The two angrily huff around the hospital until Carla and Elliot get them to talk to each other. They decide that they are both going through critical times in their lives, and that they will still be friends. That night, as J.D. waits for Turk to visit his new apartment, which is 37 minutes away, he receives a call from Turk who informs him that he won't make it. A sullen J.D. realizes he and his best friend won't get to see each other as often as they used to.

Dr. Cox and ElliotEdit

Meanwhile, Denise and Derek leave the on-call room after having sex. Carla and Elliot ask her how he is in the sack, but Denise just say that she is sleeping with him because she has low self esteem for making some recent medical mistakes. Shortly after deciding he likes Denise, Dr. Cox notices that she has made a severe mistake. As he is going to reprimand her, Elliot stops him and takes the responsibility. However, Elliot feels bad for Denise and tells Mrs. Gallin that it was her own fault for her internal bleeding. Dr. Cox oversees this and yells at Elliot. He then yells at Denise. Elliot tells him that he was being rude, and realizes that he was just taking his anger out on the two ladies. She uncovered that he is upset that after eight years J.D. is leaving.
