Doctor Elliot Reid is a former attending physician alongside J.D. and Turk at Sacred Heart in Scrubs and is played by Sarah Chalke. Elliot is very close with J.D. and has an off-and-on again relationship with J.D. throughout the series. She has also dated several other characters including Sacred Heart doctor Keith Dudemesiter, to who she was engaged to and later broke off the engagement.
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.
Turk: Bonnie is killing me; I'm telling you, I cannot beat this woman no matter what I try! She's like a ninja but worse!
J.D.: Nothing's worse than a ninja - they're masters of every style of combat.
Carla: Can we please talk about something other than Bonnie?
Elliot: I think you should give Bonnie a break. You know, it's really hard being a woman around here... you can walk through walls and nobody notices you.
J.D.: Not entirely unlike... a ninja!
J.D.: We're practically kids!
Elliot: Really? Well, what are you doing for Halloween tomorrow night?
Turk: Well, we used to dress up as pigs and hit every bar in town!
J.D.: Yeah! You have not lived until you've seen a drunken pig do The Robot.
Carla: She didn't ask what you used to do, she asked what you're doing this Halloween.
Turk: We got plans!
J.D.: Big plans!
Elliot: Watch T.V. and sleep?
Turk: Yeah, pretty much.
J.D.: Oh, I may take a bath first.
J.D.: Give me some!
