10 Shower Shorts?

“Dr. Cox: Shower Shorts?J.D.: For the man who has nothing to hide, but still wants to.”This quote is from Season 3, 'My Screw Up' and it basically perfectly sums up J.D.'s quirkiness, as well as his relationship with Dr. Cox. And let's not forget all of the sass this series (and its characters) are so well known for!Also, for a public showing system, shower shorts sound like an elegant solution to a problem. Just saying.

9 Appendix

“J.D.: You're the only man who's ever been inside of me!Turk: Whoa, whoa, I just took out his appendix.”From Season 6, My Musical, this quote is another perfect example of J.D. And one of his relationships, though this time with the one and only Turk. These two guys have always had a special bond, as many of their quotes have shown us.Though this quote does leave us it safe to trust a best friend to safely operate on you? Presumably, they are emotionally compromised...

8 Your Ex-Wife

“Dr. Cox: So my girlfriend serviced most of the staff? I'm proud of her commitment to medicine.Carla: It's not like you haven't had sex with other people. Your ex-wife, that med student, your ex-wife, the cute nurse from radiology, your ex-wife...Dr. Cox: Would you get off my ex-wife?Carla: I will if you will.”Oh, Carla, your sass shines so brightly in this quote. And let's be fair, Dr. Cox deserves all of the flack she can give him. Not only because it's karma...but because she totally has a point here. And she's the only one with the guts to point it out to him. But that won't stop her from having some fun along the way.Oh, and if you want to watch this quote again, it is in Season 2, My Fruit Cups.

7 No Barbie

“Elliot: Dr. Cox, does this shade of red make me look like a clown?Dr. Cox: No...Barbie, no. It makes you look like a prostitute that caters exclusively to clowns.”Sometimes it's hard to laugh when Dr. Cox is tearing Elliot down, given her low self-esteem and everything. But then there are times where his zingers are so perfect, it's hard to do anything but laugh. It does help to know that she does eventually come into her own, and eventually starts giving it right back to Dr. Cox.

6 Cute Butt

“J.D.: So he has a cute butt. Everyone has a cute butt. I have a cute butt.Carla: You should bring it in someday.”From the first season (My Super Ego) comes this hilarious quote. J.D.'s so jealous he's turning green, but don't worry, Carla knows exactly how to stomp all over that. And his ego. Given that Carla is a no-nonsense woman, and more than a little bit sassy, we're not at all surprised by this.

5 Tiny Hands

“Elliot: Yeah, I'm not that great with kids. They've got such tiny hands. It's creepy.”Elliot has essentially turned full circle, from her perspective on children earlier in the series, to how she feels about them by the end. But that just makes this quote all the funnier. Because apparently there was a time where she found kids (and their hands) creepy. We wonder, does she find her own kid's hands creepy? Because that might make living with them a bit difficult.

4 Great Idea

“Dr. Kelso: So what do you think?Dr. Cox: I'll tell you there, Bobbo, either this kid has a light bulb up his butt, or his colon has a great idea.”One of the most comical series of events comes from Season 4, My Office Now, there are probably a dozen other quotes we could have pulled from this episode, but this one is probably the funniest out of context.We're still confused on the how and why of this...enlightening situation. But then again, we're probably better off not knowing all of the details here.

3 See Ya

“Dr. Cox: If the next two words out of your mouth aren't 'See Ya', then the third will be: 'Oh my god, my crotch. You punched me in the crotch.”Dr. Cox: a flinty and callous person on the outside, and a callous yet caring person on the inside. He provides some of the best zingers in the series – by far. And he's not terribly fond of being bothered all the time, which probably isn't a great trait for a doctor or a teacher, let alone somebody who is meant to be both.

2 A Concussion

“J.D.: Laverne, what would you give me if I get this jellybean in your cleavage?Laverne: A concussion.”Laverne is another character more than capable of speaking her mind – and we have no doubt that she could and would follow through with all of her threats. So J.D. better tread carefully here, because otherwise, he's going to find himself needing a doctor. At least there are plenty of them around...

1 Shouldn't Be Mopping Here

“Dr. Kelso: I need someone to zip out to my house and grab 400 bucks.Janitor: I'll do it. I shouldn't be mopping here anyways...This is a rug.[Squishing sounds]”This quote will always make us giggle and laugh, if for no other reason than it reminds us of all the shenanigans that the good Janitor got up to. Such as mopping a rug in order to appear busy, because for whatever reason he felt the need to blend in for the day.We do have some questions though. How did nobody else notice that before he said something? Aren't they supposed to be smart and observant? Or have they just gotten used to ignoring what he's doing?
