Show generally

Corrected entry: In the 23rd episode of season 5, Turk tells JD he hasn't noticed Kim because she wears a wedding ring. He then goes on to cite that she was there during his first day and at Ben's funeral. It then shows clips of these two scenes. In his "first day" scene taken from the pilot episode, Kim is shown between JD and Carla as JD is celebrating, but was absent from this scene in the first episode. During Ben's funeral, Kim is shown sitting behind and between JD and Dr. Cox, which is a seat taken by Carla during the actual scene.

Correction: This is a joke, meant to emphasize his obliviousness. Like many flashbacks and fantasies in the show, it isn't meant to be taken seriously.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Keith, Lisa, Rex and a few others were JDs interns at the start of season five. Then once Keith starts to date Elliot, they suddenly become Elliot's interns. The interns Elliot had earlier in the season just disappear.

Correction: The interns just switched attendings. Whilst Turk's been at Sacred Heart he's had numerous attendings.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The janitor's lines are often unplanned, with the script simply saying, "Janitor says something".

Correction: Incorrect. The Janitor has lines, but often does variations of them. As evident by the fact that his co-stars always manage to have suitable responses.

Show generally

Corrected entry: At one point, it is revealed that the Janitor's name in the show is Neil Flynn (the actor's name), and J.D. sees him in a bit part he played in the Harrison Ford movie "The Fugitive." So, in essence, while everyone else are fictional characters, Neil Flynn is playing himself - as a sadistic janitor.

Rooster of Doom

Correction: The Janitor's name is never actually revealed; Neil Flynn's real-life past was used to give his character some depth, but the latter remains known to all and sundry only as 'Janitor'.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The shot of J.D. walking toward Sacred Heart hospital is re-used so many times. Note the lady pushing the man in the wheelchair and the two doctors standing by the wall talking.

Correction: How is this a mistake? It's just a recurring shot used over various episodes.

Continuity mistake: Dr. Cox's hair colour and length change back and forth significantly during the episode.

Trivia: Ben Sullivan, Dr. Cox's best friend and brother-in-law, loves his camera and takes pictures everywhere he goes. Brendan Fraser, who plays Ben, has a great interest for photography in real life.
