I'm never happy when a guy comes back into Elliot's life. But at least with Sean... it's entertainingJ.D.'s Narration

3x2 Sean waves

Sean waves to Elliot

J.D. is jealous that Sean Kelly is back in Elliot's life, and also worried that his relationship with Turk will change now that he and Carla have set a date for their wedding. He can't understand why Turk is so reluctant to acknowledge how close their bond as best friends is, and in particular to go out and celebrate their friendship. A patient of Turk's makes the reason clear: He is gay, and the resemblance of him and his life partner to J.D. and Turk is uncanny.

Meanwhile, Carla discovers an unmarked urine specimen, but no one else seems to care about identifying it, and so it becomes her obsession. At last the Janitor, who is frightened of Carla, finds the label identifying it.

3x2 matching duos

J.D. and Turk look like a gay couple,

Although Elliot is happy to be with Sean again, he doesn't want to be a couple, because he was devastated the last time she dumped him. Elliot assures him that she won't put her job ahead of him now that she's not an intern anymore, but she is forced to cancel their first date and realizes that the hospital always has to come first. She admits this to Sean, but promises that she will give as much of herself to the relationship as she can if he is willing to give her a chance; he accepts this promise.

After Turk discusses his problem with J.D. with his gay patient, who makes him feel better, Turk and J.D. do go out for a celebration, and their friendship is restored.

Wedding talk! Oh, how lovely! Listen, Hilton sisters: Mr. Quinn in 206 still has a severely shattered clavicle and he needs a surgical consult now. And, seeing as he's your patient, and you're a surgeon, gosh, I was hoping that if you two hens have an extra moment between choosing centerpieces and deciding just exactly how you're gonna attach that veil onto Baldy's head, well, it would just be super-de-duper if you could peek in in there and give him the old lookie-loo; wouldn't it?Dr. Cox
