Elliot: I cannot believe you're still angry about this.
Sean: I'm not angry.
Sean rolls up a newspaper and violently whacks at a fly
Sean: ARGH! DIE! DIE, DIE, DIE! ROT IN HELL! I got it.
J.D.: Dr. Cox must have my pager on speed dial. He's completely on top of me today.
Elliot: Oh, do you know how much I wish Dr. Cox was on top of me?
J.D.: That's naughty!
