Regarding the clues that Ben is dead, we read Cox's distress at the death of the patient is far too strong for him not to have a personal tie to the patient. In past episodes, Cox exhibited a more professional reaction to death (for example, in My First Kill), so the way he reacts in sending J.D. home and staying at the hospital for three days shows something more is at stake.' However, in the episode involving the three transplant patients dying of rabies, especially the patient who could have lived for another month on dialysis, Cox was so distraught that he left the hospital for three weeks. Here, could it not have been that Cox was distraught that the elderly man died within twenty minutes whereas he had told J. D. that he would not have cardiac arrest within thirty, based on his EKG? Conceivably, J. D., based on this, could have let the elderly man unattended and untreated, causing his death, due to Cox's advice. Thus, Cox could quite conceivably have denial and anger at J. D. for this. In retrospect, we learn it was Ben who died, not the elderly man, but nevertheless, it would be perfectly logical for Cox to regret in exactly the same manner had the elderly man died, since the death would be largely Cox's fault, as with the transplant victims. The quoted analysis above does not seem correct. Mikewinddale 01:52, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Not really. When those three patients died, it was because of a decision he made. The "mystery patient" didn't die due to a decision he made (other than to bail a clown who probably shouldn't be allowed around kids). He got upset about the 3 patients because he made a decision regarding their treatment that killed them. So he wouldn't care. At the most, he would be pissed at J.D. because that was Cox's patient that died thus a mark against him. -Ganon


Does "Waiting for my Real Life to Begin" by Colin Hay really occur in this song? I've watched it many times and never heard it in there but according to the wiki it does...

  • Nope! It must've been a mistake that has yet to be fixed. --Ohmyn0 @fandom (talk) 16:59, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hommage to "The Adventures Of Tintin"

Shouldn't that be mentioned? I can't really verify that picture, or provide a source for the comic, but it does seem rather legit, and thus, definitely worth mentioning. Opinions? --Ghiacciato 01:22, December 5, 2011 (UTC)

EDIT: While not much of a source, this seems to clear some things up:
Still, opinions are welcome.--Ghiacciato 01:26, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
No opinions necessary the 2nd comment on reddit sums it up, I am more interested in the original source of the cartoon and what other things the person has drawn. --Remlap1986 02:56, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
