I want a watchie-talkie, if for no other reason than it would be fun to say, "I'm chattin' on my watchie-talkie" whenever anyone asked me what I was doing. Turk's call sign was Brown Bear... of course. J.D.'s? Gizmo. Too cute! But there was so much going on in this new episode it was jam-packed with snappy dialogue and random bizarre moments. It is a tie for my favorite line of the night. I'm torn between Perry snapping at a patient, "As a doctor, I rarely root for the disease, but with you I find myself cheering, 'Go hypercalcemia with underlying MEN syndrome. Go, go, go, go!'"; and Elliot's unintentionally self-deprecating comment: "Keith is the best intern, he shouldn't be punished just because he has to sleep with me... gets to." Actually her exasperation about her boyfriend being prevented from hanging out with her because of cancer was pretty good, too, and her affection for the female doctor Jaime in pediatrics had me rolling. I wonder if we'll ever get to see this hospital goddess. Basically, if laughter is the best medicine, then these doctors are the cure for what ails me. In fact, I think my sniffles are disappearing as I type.
