** By the end of the series, the hospital staff in general seems to be more caring towards him. After a visit from Dr. Kelso causes Ted to freak out and faint, Cox tells him to go lie down, Kelso lays a blanket over him while inquiring about his presence at the hospital, and J.D. notes that everyone has been "spending time with him, taking him on walks" before scratching Ted's ear like a dog. PlayedForLaughs, of course, but the humor around him is far less morbid than it was during the earlier portions of the series.

* MyBelovedSmother: While supportive and mothering to the new interns, Carla admits she can go overboard, particularly when she senses that they're outgrowing her. Her slowness in recognizing JD's need to stand on his own two feet causes one of their few major spats.

** And a good enough friend to Turk to be one of his groomsmen. Later, he's good and ready to punch out Carla's brother when the latter won't stop making nasty comments about Turk, and in another conversation, Turk sincerely tells him, "You always know the right thing to say."

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The early seasons largely presented him as a {{Jerkass}} that was only interested in money, but gradually he was shown to have far more depth to him.

** Deconstructed even further in Season 5 when J.D. ends up showing favortism towards the worst intern and breaking his own rules and gets called out on it by Dr. Cox, after which J.D. does the right thing.

The Chief of Surgery and Turk's superior. He's the OnlySaneMan of the Surgery Wing and thinks surgeons can be more than just stereotypical JerkJocks that are obsessed with being the best.
