Storyline

On his first day at the Sacred Heart Hospital new Intern J.D realizes that being a doctor is a whole lot different and harder than he actually thought. At the end he finds out that people are not always what they seem to be at first, for example Dr Kelso who did act nice is actually a complete Jerk and mean Dr Cox is actually a good guy.

Quotes

J.D.: How's it going?
Janitor: I'm 37 years old and I'm a janitor. How do you think it's going?
J.D.: Now there is nothing wrong with being a janitor.
Janitor: Really? Thank you. You've turned my life around. I have to go tell my janitor wife and all my janitor kids that life is worth living. And that comes straight from our hero, Dr. Whozits, Dr. Nothing. No, seriously, come on. You can come over to my humble house and point out things that are cheap.

first day
23 May 2006 | by scooterfan470See all my reviews

It's the first day for new interns John Dorian, Chris Turk and Elliot Reid. Both John "J.D." Dorian and Elliot are medical interns, whereas Chris Turk is one of the new surgical intake. J.D. and Turk are long established best friends, but they meet Elliot for the first time, thought it is certainly not the last time they spend time together! Throughout their first day, the interns are forced to face the realities of working in a hospital, and the pressures that go with it. They're aided by a few kooky characters, like the iconic Dr Perry Cox and the sweet but feisty Nurse Carla Espinosa. It's an eye-opening experience for all 3 interns, but ultimately their first day is a success and the series Pilot is a hit.
