* BerserkButton:
** Being called stupid.
** Almost anything J.D. say or does, apparently.



* EasilyForgiven: Despite all of the horrible things he's done to J.D., some of which could have permanently injured or killed him, he parts with J.D. on good terms.



* {{Flanderization}}:
** While he gets more screen time and CharacterDevelopment over the years (he was barely a SatelliteCharacter in season 1), he goes from a mysterious strange janitor guy to a literally insane and sociopathic character. PlayedForLaughs obviously.
** His early pranks on J.D. were mostly harmless. In later seasons many of his pranks are physically dangerous or even potentially fatal.

* JokerImmunity: He somehow lasts three years as an intern before anyone begins to seriously doubt his suitability to become a doctor, and even then it doesn't happen until Doug himself asks the other staff whether or not they think he should quit. Contrast this with the way that Cabbage was fired almost immediately once JD realized just how incompetent he was.

Contrast this with the way that Cabbage was fired almost immediately once JD realized just how incompetent he was. Somewhat "{{Justified}}" in that in many cases, he is ''so'' [[ComicallyIneptHealing comically inept]] that it isn't even clear ''how'' he keeps causing disasters- meaning, he can't be fired because it isn't clear what he did wrong.

%%* YuppieCouple


Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: She had rabies when she died, which may have been what killed her, but everyone assumed that she committed suicide due to depression and since she was a donor and they had several patients waiting, her organs were transplanted before her disease was discovered, which meant that Dr Cox accidentally killed three of his own patients.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: Compared to both his sisters (Jordan and Danni) and his brother-in-law (Dr. Cox), he seems to be the only likable person in the family. We don't know much about his parents but in one episode Cox claims that [[{{Jerkass}} Jordan]] is basically the same as her mother.
