Dr. Robert "Bob Kelso" is the former Chief of Medicine of Sacred Heart on Scrubs and is played by Ken Jenkins. Although Dr. Kelso is generally portrayed as mean-spirited and heartless, he really is just doing his job as the Chief and is looking out for the hospital's best interests. Now retired, Dr. Kelso still hangs around the hospital and is much more human showing his softer side and ofering advice.
Kelso often refers to his obese wife Enid and his gay son Harrison, though neither have appeared on the show.
Dr. Kelso: Ahhh! Dr. Turkleton!
Turk: Actually, sir, it's Turk.
Dr. Kelso: That's your first name.
Turk: You think my name is Turk Turkleton?
Dr. Kelso: When the hell did patients stop respecting us? I really tried to help that young woman in there today, but she rolled over me like Enid's wheelchair over Baxter's tail.
Dr. Cox: Hmm?
Dr. Kelso: Enid was recently paralyzed, I haven't told anyone.
