Storyline

When Dr. Cox scoffs at reading lines with a patient preparing for a play, J.D. urges his fellow doctors to do special, unconventional things for their patients. But when J.D. scores a date with a hot babe who loves his hair, he's not sure he can shave his head for a woman undergoing chemo. Turk and Carla attempt to eliminate all stress to better their chances of conceiving, but Turk has to compete for a surgical resident spot and Carla loses Dr. Kelso's VIP patient. Meanwhile, Elliot showers Keith with stupid gifts. Written by Alex
