Elliot later went into private practice where she was able to make much more money, but still work at Sacred Heart but no longer have to respond to Dr. Cox or Dr. Kelso.
Elliot is extremely insecure and very socially awkward. She, though is attractive, and slowly becoming more confident throughout the seasons.
Elliot: So, Kylie looks like she's having fun.
J.D.: It's a front. She's miserable. So far the highlight of the night's been putting the possum to sleep and that's not a euphemism.
Elliot: J.D., seeing a young doctor do his job is an amazing turn-on for a girl. My dad's a doctor, and I remember how excited I was the first time I saw him work at the hospital. I mean, I didn't want to sleep with him, but there were definitely some complicated feelings. But that's totally normal for an 11-year-old, right?
Elliot: And any drug use?
Mr. Phillips: Been on and off heroin for the last eight years, but I've been clean for the last six months. See? Look, no track marks.
Kid: Way to go, daddy!
Mr. Phillips: 'S my biggest fan!
Elliot: Heh. Umm... Do you smoke cigarettes?
Mr. Phillips: No way.
Elliot: Of course not. Those things'll kill ya.
