J.D., who has been watching their relationship develop, finally acknowledges that he still has feelings for Elliot and that he has to come to either accept her new relationship or do something about it. Meanwhile, Dr. Cox. (John C. McGinley) is forced to swallow his pride and actually ask for help when he decides to throw his hat in the ring for the Residency Director position at the hospital.
