J.D. likes his patient's private practice doctor, Dr. Peter Fisher (Jay Mohr), but is shocked to find out he's the reason Jordan and Cox got divorced. Janitor tries to flirt with Elliot. Carla begins to doubt her sexiness.
The episode is told from Cox's viewpoint as he discusses the hospital and Jordan in his therapy sessions with Dr. Gross (Eric Bogosian). Elliot meets Paul Flowers (Rick Schroder), who she likes until she finds out he's a nurse.
Turk's brother, Kevin (D.L. Hughley) comes to visit with important news. Dr. Townshend (Dick van Dyke) runs into trouble with Kelso when J.D. screws up an out-dated procedure under Townshend's supervision.
Elliot: You know what, Mr. Bragen? I figured something out. Mr. Bragen: That damn nurse broke my bed. Elliot: That's just it - you blame everyone else for anything that goes wrong in your life. Like this. The nurse didn't break your bed, you just press this button... All right, it is broken. The point is, if you hate your job, maybe you need to switch careers; if you can't get into a relationship, maybe you have problems with commitment, huh? And I know that I'm right, 'cause I'm the exact same way: I blame my parents for not preparing me for the real world, I blame this hospital for taking up all of my time; I'm even blaming you for jeopardizing my future! But, you know what? It's time for me to grow up and start holding myself accountable. And I'm doing it. Mr. Bragen: Good for you! Elliot: You're, um, still suing me, aren't you. Mr. Bragen: Yeah. But I feel like now you'll be able to handle it!
J.D.: Look, I know that he's in private practice and everything, but Pete's actually a really cool guy. Dr. Cox: He is a bad guy; and Newbie, if you're smart, you'll stay away from him. J.D.: Oh, my God! You're actually jealous that I'm hanging out with another doctor! Dr. Cox: No, I'm not. J.D.: Laverne? Laverne: Jealous! J.D.: Ta-DOW!
