J.D. & ElliotEdit

Since Elliot and J.D. have recently broken up, Elliot claims that it will be harder for J.D. to transition back to being friends than Elliot, which she then proves by tricking JD into taking his clothes off for her. Turk encourages J.D. to ask out the gift shop girl. It seems to soon, but Elliot encourages J.D. to do so. And he does.

Outside the hospital, Elliot discovers that her van has been stolen, with all her belongings inside. She starts talking to J.D. about it, but he then instantly heads off for a second date with Lisa the gift shop girl, leaving Elliot completely alone, feeling even worse. Later on, she gives him attitude about it. He says this is what she wanted. Elliot tells him, "she needed him as a friend." She claims to be okay, but he realizes she's putting up a front. He considers if he should go out for a date with Lisa or be a friend to someone he already loves.

Harvey CormanEdit

Meanwhile, Mr. Corman the hypochondriac is back, and this time he thinks he has 'Yaba', but Dr. Cox and Carla are doubtful. Turk performs brain surgery on a patient (Mrs. Kaye), who reminds him of his grandmother. After the surgery Dr. Kelso tells Turk to revoke her driving license because of the surgery, a task which Turk can't do because he feels too close to his patient. Besides, she says that her reactions have not suffered. Mr. Corman's results all come back negative (suggesting he is completely healthy) but he still isn't convinced. So, to scare him, Dr Cox suggests a bone marrow test involving a giant painful needle. Mr. Corman accepts. Then the results of Mr. Corman's big needle test come back, and it turns out he is actually sick, with a rare form of cancer (To which he replies "Yeah.... I think I had that in college once.)

Turk & KelsoEdit

Meanwhile, outside the hospital, Turk is talking to Dr. Kelso, and lies to him about revoking Mrs. Kay's License. Just as he does so, Mrs. Kay comes hurtling through the car park and ploughs into Kelso's car. Needless to say, Kelso is not happy.
