J.D.: Look Elliot, I dunno if its possible for me to put how I feel about you into words but I guess I'll give it a shot. I never really believed I'd find someone I loved as much as you. I love you more than anything in the whole world. Elliot, I love you more than Turk
Elliot: Oh my god
J.D.: It's kind of hard for me to say, but it's true
Carla: He went home, but he said Carol can cover for him.
Turk: Is Carol the one with the firm butt?
J.D: Well, I'm Carol, so yes.
Elliot: It's disturbing how obsessed you are with your own butt
