** Carla in one episode repeatedly infantilizes JD, her workplace superior, both by mocking his competence and referring to him as "Bambi" in front of his patients. It gets to the point where JD (who admittedly is having a bad day) snaps and furiously reminds Carla of her place. Both of them in this situation are out of line: Carla was demeaning JD in front of a patient, which can seriously impact the patient's confidence in their care, while JD's pulling rank humiliates a medical professional who is far more skilled and experienced than he is and who only has to take orders from him due to the medical hierarchy. However, JD is promptly reamed out by everyone he knows for the dispute and is clearly portrayed as the only one in the wrong. To save their friendship he apologizes, and to add insult to injury, "Bambi" forever after becomes Carla's nickname for him.

* WomenAreWiser: Very, very often. A general rule of thumb for the show is that in any non-comedic situation involving the four main protagonists, whatever Carla says is right. If she is absent, Elliot is right. If neither of them is right, the show will still make clear to you that the guys are jerks for being right.

* LiteralMetaphor: Elliot in an argument with a patient suing her for malpractice uses "so sue me!" in a metaphorical sense, to which the patient points out, that is literally what he is doing.

** The case of an epilleptic girl from the episode "My Big Move". The girl refused to take her medications, for which Dr. Cox chews her out for endangering her own life and telling her to grow up. It turn out the girl refused to take her medications because "she was tired of people telling her what to do", even though it was her parents telling her to follow the dosage instructions. In the end Elliot tells the girl that she will be given the instructions directly. And it's seen to be a good thing, despite the fact that the girl had refused to take her medication for the aforementioned "reason". And to top it off Elliot tells Dr. Cox to mind the insecurities of all women, basically the aesop of the episode being: Treat all women, even grown-ups as hissy-fitting teenagers, play along their insecurities instead of calling them out for acting childish. (Which as previously mentioned Carla does to JD and Turk in almost every time they are being childish.)
