*** Except the plot of My TCW from season 2 literally contradicts this. As JD struggled internally about whether to date a married woman. And that woman WASN'T invisible to her. If TCW was an exception, why? The show never answers this as TPTB clearly didn't think this plot device through.

** It is also entirely possible for people to intellectually understand a situation in general terms without entirely understanding the full implications of that situation if they haven't seen or experienced it first hand. ''Intellectually'', they understand that Casey has OCD and it's probably a bit of a problem for him. But ''emotionally'', all they've experienced is this guy they think's a bit of a smug know-it-all sweeping into their lives and showing them all up as being inferior to him on their home turf; they're jealous, embarrassed and resentful, and none of those emotional responses are particularly conducive to coldly logical and rational thought. When they see Casey obsessively washing his hands, however, they get a first-hand glimpse of his OCD, for the first time it clicks, and they consequently realise that any satisfaction he might have gotten any superiority he might have towards them to them is more than outweighed by his misery at the situation that his own mind has trapped him in, and that their resentment is, yes, just them being a bit petty.

*** The patient's wife is definitely being an asshole in that situation, but in her defence ''she's'' not the one employed at the hospital as a doctor. It's Elliot's job -- duty, even -- ''not'' to confront the wife and exacerbate the situation, and to get out of any confrontation sharpish if it does happen. Okay, there's been a misunderstanding and it's making things complicated and awkward, but Elliot's job is to take care of sick people, not resolve misunderstandings in her personal life; she can sort that out in her own time. And if the wife is absolutely determined to start some shit? Tough, Elliot's the doctor there, not her, and Elliot is perfectly entitled to summon security and get her the fuck out of there, sick husband or no, if she's incapable of behaving herself or intending to cause trouble. The last thing Elliot should have done in that situation was to engage with her at all and make things worse.

** JD flat out explains it in a voice over. New doctors work tons of hours and make very little money. The Janitor teases JD about looking at his personnel file and seeing that he makes more money than JD does. Given that the Janitor has likely been working there for a good while and that JD was at that point very early in his first year of residency, he was very likely telling the truth. Combine this with the fact that nobody but Elliot grew up with much money, college and medical school is obviously very expensive and this is their first job after medical school- so yes, it is reasonable to believe that JD, Elliot, and Turk were that poor. Heck, Carla probably made more than Turk early on.

** A doctor can strongly advise a patient that something is a bad idea, but they can't force the patient not to do it if the patient is absolutely determined to do so and is otherwise in sound mental health. As the troper above says, all they can do is pick up the pieces afterwards and hope the patient learns a lesson from it.

** If we do need an explanation, it's probably also less that they couldn't think of a boy's name and more that they called him "Joanna" because it made them feel better about not having a girl and helped ease their disappointment a bit, and at that age he probably wouldn't care too much about being called a girl's name anyway. When he started to reach the age where it might get a bit more awkward or potentially even psychologically damaging, they chose a simple boy's name to make the transition easier for all concerned.

** 1. If J.D. and Turk left the building without having anyone officially covering for them they should be sued ''and'' fired. '''And''' have their medical licenses revoked. Since this was not brought up, I have to assume either the writers are really against doing the research (and they have a medical consultant on staff!) or they really '''really''' [[TheyJustDidntCare didn't care.]]

** Three possibilities come to mind. First, as long as the tenant reverses the change before moving out, there's usually no issue. In the case of installing hardwood floors and then reverting, this can involve a lot of expense for a temporary change, but it's not out of the question. Second, by a similar notion, the tenant can make the change without permission and decide to just deal with whatever financial ramifications the landlord decides to impose. Third, and most reasonably, landlords are sometimes willing to give permission for improvements if the improvement increases the apartment's value and tenant is footing the bill.
