In the Season 9 premiere, J.D., Turk, Cox, Kelso and Denise take on a med-school teaching gig at Sacred Heart that finds them mentoring a new crop of students, whose first day of school is especially challenging. Kerry Bishe, Michael Mosley and Dave Franco (more…)
In the Season 2 finale, a visit from J.D. and Turk's frat buddy (Ryan Reynolds), now successful and still partying, unsettles his pals. Meanwhile, Cox learns he's the father of Jordan's baby; and Kelso comes down hard on Elliot.
Hospital duty conflicts with Elliot's new romance with an old beau (Scott Foley), who's really more attached to the sea creatures he trains; the bond between J.D. and Turk faces a stern test as the latter finally sets a wedding day.
Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) plays a pediatrician who defies Cox. Elsewhere, new interns test the patience of the residents, especially J.D. and Elliot, who has separate issues with her buttinsky boyfriend.
The residency directorship appeals to Cox, but Kelso's a hurdle; tensions surface between Elliot and Sean, who learns of her fling with J.D.; a surgical procedure partners Carla with Turk, who's not anxious to work side by side with his fiancee.
Carla's brother (Freddy Rodriguez of “Six Feet Under”) rankles Turk; a scattered yet beguiling hospital visitor (Tara Reid) intrigues J.D., whose loyalty to Cox is tested in an issue involving the critically ill that embattles Cox with Kelso.
The diagnosis of a jovial patient (Nicole Sullivan) stymies J.D., whose lover (Tara Reid) learns of his affair with Cox's ex; an elderly woman's care creates tension between Elliot and Carla; Kelso's temporary hearing loss amuses staffers.
OR success buoys Turk's ego; the attention of a sympathetic patient (Bernie Kopell) cheers Elliot, who doubts her ability as a doctor; a back injury gives Cox a lesson in mortality. Danni: Tara Reid. Jordan: Christa Miller Lawrence.
