Turk's brother, Kevin (D.L. Hughley) comes to visit with important news. Dr. Townshend (Dick van Dyke) runs into trouble with Kelso when J.D. screws up an out-dated procedure under Townshend's supervision.
Mr. Simms: I just wish I really knew why it hurt so much right here. Turk: Well, Mr. Simms, it could be because it's damp out. It could also be because, four days ago, I sliced your chest open with a giant knife. You had surgery, buddy, you'll be fine.
Dr. Cox: How's, uh, how's MeatHead? Carla: I know I'm not a doctor, but if you could order a strong antiemetic, that would be great. Dr. Cox: For the record, you know you would ace that nurse practitioners program. Carla: Really? You think so? Well, what if the classes are too hard? What if the teachers are mean? What if the other kids don't like me?
