Elliot: Now that you made out with my best friend, that makes us not even again. So go get me some cotton balls and a toe separator - mama needs a pedicure! Heh.
J.D.: Elliot, once you're even, you can't just go back to being not even. That ain't new, girl!
Elliot: Admit we're not even or I'll make you pay.
J.D.: Heh, yeah, now that we're friends and there's no chance of us ever having sex again, there's really not a whole lot I "need" from you, okay?
Elliot: You doing okay?
Dan: I am now. You know, without Elliot, I never woulda gotten through my dad's death.
