Main Characters in this Episode
Jake: Excuse me?
Dr. Elliot Reid: [scoffs] No, I'm just kidding, I love old people. Still, there's no denying they have a distinctive smell. I mean, it's nothing bad. It's like a... general mustiness... like... you know when... you get your cast... taken off and... skin mold...
Nurse Carla Espinosa: Oh...
Jake: Well, I have a flight to catch... you guys need me to sign anything?
Dr. Perry Cox: No.
Nurse Carla Espinosa: No, you're good.
Jake: OK, then. [walks away]
Dr. Perry Cox: Hats off there, Barbie... that was one potent combination of verbal diarrhea and stunned silence...
Nurse Carla Espinosa: You should have just asked him out. Men love that.
Dr. Perry Cox: No, Carla, men don't love that. It turns out we don't love picnics, foreplay, candles, baths, photo albums, or when you drive so we can relax; and, as always, we're not that big on Hugh Jackman. Look there... the only thing men care about as far as dating is concerned is the chase; if you want that guy to look your way, listen me carefully... ignore the living hell out of him.
Nurse Carla Espinosa: That's the worst advice I've ever heard!
Dr. Perry Cox: Good point, Carla. Say, you don't happen to have any other gems before you run off to couples therapy to sift through the wreckage that is the first year of your marriage, do ya?
Dr. Elliot Reid: Look, Dr Cox, I'm sure that you are fantastic at picking up men, really...
Nurse Carla Espinosa: Ah ah!
Dr. Elliot Reid: ...but I can handle this one on my own. Thank you.
Dr. Todd Quinlan: I don't know how you do it - make love with your lady in front of some old dude who's filming you?
Dr. Christopher Turk: That's not couples therapy, Todd.
Dr. Todd Quinlan: Then what did I do?
Dr. Christopher Turk: You did amateur porn!
Dr. Todd Quinlan: [smiling] Sweet!..
Dr. Elliot Reid: He doesn't have one.
Nurse Carla Espinosa: Exactly! But what does he have?
Dr. Elliot Reid: A shaved chest, a closetful of tiny tee shirts, and the eyes of a madman.
Dr. Perry Cox: Ohh! I'm sorry! The correct answer she was looking for is a giant ego! I have a giant ego!
- Goof (continuity error): When Turk realizes, that he was hitting J.D.'s arm, he stops with his fist raised. In a next cut, from behind his back, his hand is open, with fingers apart. In a next cut en face he still has fist raised.
