Added DiffLines:

* UltimateJobSecurity: He's a major DrJerk to the extent that House may have been InspiredBy him. Except that Dr. Cox ''has'' been disciplined. He even got suspended from the hospital in the second episode. The only reason he hasn't been fired is his ex-wife is on the hospital's board of directors. Plus he's a damned good doctor. And Kelso admitted that he needs him in order to balance out his own focus on the bottom line on occasions when an uninsured patient really does need care.


Added DiffLines:

* UltimateJobSecurity: He never does his work, and is constantly pulling pranks or messing with people in other ways, to the extent that he trapped JD in a water tower for an entire day and got off totally scot-free. Of course, it turns out that the main reason for his security is because Dr. Kelso openly doesn't care what the hospital employees did as long as the money rolled in and he got to enjoy the perks of his job. Upon Kelso's retirement, he's replaced by Dr. Maddox, who actually acts like an administrator, having the Janitor fired on the spot when she sees him trip JD in the hallway.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Cox:''' I would never compare you to the gays. I like the gays; I like their music, I like their sense of style, I especially like what they've done with Halloween

* NecessarilyEvil: Crosses over with ZeroApprovalGambit and MeanBoss. As the Chief of Medicine, Kelso has to do what's best for the hospital, even if that means some patients end up dying as a result of his decisions.

Added DiffLines:

* PlausibleDeniability: In later seasons it's shown that he is fully aware that his staff often treat patients behind his back even if they are ordered not to (such as if they are terminal, don't have insurance etc.) and he pretty much lets them off with it, or publicly punishes them while privately being happy they did it. As Chief of Medicine it's his job to run the hospital like a business and Sacred Heart is often shown having financial problems on top of that, but as long as he makes a show of being ruthlessly tight-fisted he doesn't have to answer awkward questions if patients are treated "under his nose" to the Board of Directors.

Added DiffLines:

* ManChild: So immature and irresponsible that [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} J.D.]] is actually the more serious brother. Despite J.D's goofy personality, he's very good at his job and and can look after himself, unlike his brother.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawLoser: J.D. is glad that his loser brother Dan makes him look successful in comparison to him. Averted in season 7 where Dan becomes a successful real estate agent, making J.D. very jealous.
