MY FIRST DAY (PILOT) - Episode 1
Joining the rumpled J.D. on his first day are his college buddy, Chris Turk (Donald Faison, "Remember the Titans"), an intern with a more elite surgical group, and J.D.'s fellow medical intern, the beautiful and driven Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, "Roseanne"). Meanwhile, the sobering reality of patients' needs has J.D.'s head spinning and his confidence is challenged by the fatherly chief of medicine, Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins, "Courage Under Fire"). However, with the help of the abrasive, worldly Dr. Phil Cox (John C.

( Zach Braff) shows genuine concern for a flaky patient (guest star John Ducey) after a cancer scare, but when the man continues to puff away daily on multiple packs of cigarettes, J.D. seeks advice from his gruff mentor Dr. Cox (John McGinley) on how to intervene -- and instead gets smacked as a professional courtesy. Elsewhere, Elliot's (Sarah Chalke) unsociable bedside manner and attitude makes her public enemy number-one among the nurses -- especially Carla (Judy Reyes).

WILL LONELY J.D. CONSIDER TURK TO BE CRUDDY BUDDY? -- When Turk (Donald Faison) always seems occupied with new girlfriend Carla (Judy Reyes) and with work, a resentful J.D. (Zach Braff) feels like an odd-man-out and abandoned by his buddy -- especially when he believes that Turk botched a patient's surgery that could also implicate him for not reporting the mistake. In addition, J.D. is even more distracted by his tempting flirtations with Elliot (Sarah Chalke) but he feels that unless he makes a more serious romantic maneuver within 48 hours, their budding relationship will be forever doomed and downgraded to merely "friends" status.
