Synopsis

2x8 OBGYN club

The OB-GYN club at Sacred Heart

While J.D. and Turk steal food and toilet paper from the hospital and work extra shifts to cover expenses, Elliot is comfortable living off her father's money. When Turk finds an extra shift in pediatrics for him and J.D. he neglects to tell J.D. about a hundred dollar difference in price and keeps the money for himself. Upon finding this out, J.D. forces Turk out of the job, forcing him to ride around in an ambulance and a rift to form in their friendship.

When Elliot's father, Simon Reid comes to town, he tries to get Elliot to change her career into OB-GYN until Elliot stands up to him. He takes her off his support, causing Elliot to fend for herself and move out of her deluxe apartment.

Quotes

2x8 JD crying

J.D. cries when Dr. Cox winks at him.

Luckily for Turk, revenge is a dish best served cold.... Not unlike this tapioca pudding.J.D.


The average resident owes over one hundred thousand dollars in med school loans, and makes about as much as a waiter. So you have to do things to make ends meet. Like, you can cover someone's shift... Or you can steal stuff from the hospital. Or you can moonlight at an urgent care center... Or, you can steal stuff. Or your dad can pay for everything... Or, well... you know... J.D.


This is the reason why your headache didn't go away: That's actually pronounced analgesic, not anal-gesic. Sir, the pills go in your mouth.Turk


Maybe the best thing to do is just stop trying to figure out where you're going, and enjoy where you're at.J.D.'s narration
