Quote from Janitor

Janitor: Look, I'm just a janitor. I don't know much. But I do know this: You need surgery.
J.D.: [v.o.] What?

Quote from J.D.

Dr. Kelso: Dr. Dorian, present your patient.
J.D.: Yes, sir. The patient presented in DKA, which is why I've started him on an insulin drip and...
Man: Don't bother. I'm gonna go in for surgery.
Woman: Me too.
[fantasy:]
Nurse: I'm having surgery right now, and loving it.
Turk: Let's get you out of your skin.

Quote from J.D.

J.D.: [v.o.] I too decided it was time to act like the most confident girl in the room and face things head-on.

Quote from Turk

J.D.: That was my patient, Turk. I brought you in as my friend. You're so damn competitive, you just go ahead and take him from me? That sucks.
Turk: Tough.
J.D.: Excuse me?
Turk: You're damn right I'm competitive. You see, that's what makes me a good doctor. I want to win at everything, every day, and you should too.
J.D.: Oh, you know, tat sounds like a great friendship.
Turk: If you don't want to play "Steak" again, fine. This has nothing to do with friendship and you know it. So stop blaming me, because the truth is you're angry at yourself because you couldn't get the guy to believe in you.

Quote from Elliot

Elliot: Sean, wait.
Sean: Is that-
Elliot: No! No. This is just muddy water. See?
Sean: You just tasted muddy water.
Elliot: I know. That was weird.

Quote from Elliot

[Elliot kisses Sean]
Sean: You're like, the best doctor ever.
Elliot: Why the hell didn't you ask me out?
Sean: Are you kidding? I was laying there, pants-less, with, like, crusties in my nose, and I just-
Elliot: Sean, ask me out this minute.
Sean: Yes, ma'am. Do you want to go out with me, Elliot?
Elliot: Yes.
