Added DiffLines:

* AesopAmnesia: You'd think he'd learn to respect Turk's skills after he performed pre-natal surgery on Cox's daughter, but Turk still has to earn his respect multiple times

-->'''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

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.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Subverted. Initially J.D. takes Cabbage to be much like his own younger self, and resolves to have a better relationship with him than he himself does with Dr. Cox. As Cox himself later points out, however, Cabbage is actually his ''opposite''; whereas J.D. is a goofball whose relationship with his mentor is complicated at best, but ultimately a good doctor, Cabbage is much more earnest and affable and has a good relationship with J.D., but is dangerously incompetent and has absolutely no business trying to become a medical professional. If anything, he's actually an even more incompetent version of Doug.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther:
** With Jordan. Zigzagged as it is stated early on that they both like being mean (to both each other and others). They really care for each other but still hate to admit it and given the personality of both of them, it's not that surprising.
** He sometimes shows this towards JD, kinda. Especially the final episode, in which Cox defends JD from (set-up) false bad claims shows this.

* ButtMonkey: Everyone is hers, [[MoralityPet except her children.]] [[RefugeinAudacity Usually.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DotingParent: Despite [[{{Jerkass}} her flaws]], she's shown to be a loving parent to her children. Even ''Dr. Cox.'' says she's this.


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: She does this around everyone [[MoralityPet except her children.]] [[RefugeinAudacity Usually.]]


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: While she and Dr. Cox live together and clearly love each other, Jordan also flirts with other men. Even in front of her husband (well, ex-husband in theory).
