J.D.: Even though I had created a super medical crimefighting team, I felt lousy.
  • Wilford Brimley: Most recognizable in movies like Cocoon, A. Wilford Brimley is a character actor who specializes in playing older, more curmudgeonly characters. He has appeared in several television series, but had a starring role in Our House.
J.D.: You know what else is a lovely memory? That Sunday I spent eight hours helping you join the Wilford Brimley fan club.
  • The Hulk: Bruce Banner (also known as The Hulk) is a superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962. After being doused with gamma radiation, Banner gained the ability to transform into the Incredible Hulk, a green monster fueled by rage. The character has spawned several solo comic book series, as well as a television series, a movie, multiple video games and even a shortlived UPN cartoon.
J.D.: Yeah, you're like the brown Hulk.
  • Greg Barton: As mentioned by Jake, Greg Barton is a world class kayaker. He has four Olympic medals in sprint kayaking and pioneered several techniques used in kayak racing.
Jake: I don't know what the odds are, J.D., but what I do know is I'm about to go down to my truck, get my kayak paddle, and go Greg Barton on your ass.
  • NHL Strike: During the 2004-2005 season, the NHL players union was locked out due to disagreements over salary caps and negotiation of payment for the players. As a result the entire season was forfeit and the NHL closed up shop until an agreement was met.
Dr. Cox: Maybe because the NHL is on strike and I'm not getting my fill of toothless men knocking the hell out of each other.

    Jake: ...Are you an idiot?
  • Janitor: Elliot. My neighbor fainted too! Hey, you wanna go clubbing tonight? And I don't mean dancing-- I mean going up to the roof and killing rats.
    Elliot: Janitor. I thought we were done with this?
    Janitor: I know. Thought I'd give it a shot.
