Dr. Cox and JulieEdit

J.D. talks to a teenage patient about being safer while skateboarding. During the middle of a rant from Dr. Cox, J.D. uncharacteristically walks away because he knows the drug representative is coming to Sacred Heart that day. Julie Keaton enters the hospital and everyone is taken by how hot she is, even Carla. Later, Julie begins to flirt with J.D.. She is interrupted by Dr. Cox who vents that he hates how her company marks the medication up and how poor patients can't afford it. He storms off and takes J.D. with him. Dr. Cox is later approached by Dr. Kelso and Julie, and Kelso forces Perry to organize a staff dinner where Julie can sell them Plomox. Julie confronts Perry when he admits he hasn't invited anyone to the dinner yet, and comments that he is using her career as an excuse for not asking her out. She starts to smack her bottom when she walks around and Dr. Cox stares in awe. At the dinner, Dr. Cox is annoyed by Turk, Todd and Carla who are seated at his table, but is caught staring at Julie across the room. Outside the restaurant, Julie asks him out on a date to which he shoots her down. He later realizes that she was right and they were attracted to each other, and he finds her in a bar and sits down for a drink.

J.D. and ElliotEdit

Meanwhile, Elliot asks J.D. for advice on a patient. J.D. tells her to "wait and see", but she signs her up for surgery after she gets the feeling that J.D. thinks he is a better doctor than she is. The patient dies, and J.D. fails to show any compassion, instead re-stating that he was correct. Before the Morbidity and Mortality conference, J.D. tries to apologize but Elliot storms off. During the conference, Dr. Kelso congratulates her for her decision which was the only one to be made that would allow the patient any hope of surviving. He also told all "wait and see" doctors that they would never be great doctors. After the conference, J.D. thanked Elliot for not rubbing the events in his face, and Elliot makes a joke right to his face. In the cafeteria, J.D. admits that he really is not daring in his career or life, and Elliot drags him along to go bungee jumping.

Carla & TurkEdit

As Carla rushes through a busy day, Turk offers her a present. It is a bus pass and a brochure for Nurse Practitioners school so she will have more responsibilities, privileges, and higher pay. Carla becomes upset when he tells her that she doesn't have to be "just a nurse" anymore. After getting yelled at by Dr. Kelso for doing something only doctors can do, Carla seriously contemplates Turk's offer. At the Plomox dinner, Carla lectures the Todd on how she is actually happy with her life. Because Turk managed to eat several people's steaks at the dinner, he is taken to Sacred Heart, where Carla asks Dr. Cox to write him a prescription. He tells her that she would do well at the school, but she tells him that if she took that opportunity she would not have any time to spend with Turk and that she was placing her odds on her relationship with him.

TriviaEdit

  • The video tape footage of the skater kid falling onto the railing also appeared in game of Newsflash on ABC's Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
  • Mrs. Kahn, Dr. Wilde, Mr. Brooks are possibly a reference to Blazing Saddles, as the three of the main cast members were Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Mel Brooks.
  • The stunt people who bungee jumped for Sarah Chalke and Zach Braff met the day of the stunt. They are currently married.
  • During the Morbidity/Mortality conference, J.D. fantasizes that he is the only person present. During the first part of the fantasy, there is a backpack on the row behind and to the right of J.D .
