** In a similar vein to the one about ''GreysAnatomy'', there's the time Kelso says Dr. Cox is "Like Series/{{House}}, without the limp." Though that may have been entirely well meaning, seeing as they later did an episode long House homage.

* InformedWrongness:
** While the first few seasons were about J.D. learning how to improve himself as a doctor and a person, later seasons progressively were examples of this instead. A controversial example was after he found out that Kim lied to him about having miscarried. While he did do some things wrong in dealing with it (like running out when she wanted to talk), after he upsets her (ironically she was one of the only people to say he had legitimate reasons for it) everyone turns on him when they find out.
** Apparently JD has no right to be upset about the fact that Turk and Carla are kicking him out of their apartment, because they need room to grow as a couple, and potentially, a family. The issue here is that the apartment is JD's, he found it first, and then invited Turk to come live with him, who later moved Carla in. ''They have no right'' demanding that JD moves out, yet JD is shown as being in the wrong for not wanting to honour his friends wishes.
** Poor JD gets this yet again when Elliot kisses him ''seconds'' before Sean returns, having implied that she wanted to get back together with him. Elliot then rekindles her relationship with Sean, and when JD rightly points out that it isn't fair, Elliot responds with a rather cutting 'you're supposed to be my friend'. Once again JD is considered to be in the wrong for being upset.

* InformedAbility: Played for laughs with Todd, a moron who routinely proves he's TooDumbToLive. He's also evidently a skilled surgeon, a fact we rarely see (and that the writer's lampshade, as other characters frequently forget as well).
** But in "My Hero", we're shown one of the only scenes displaying the Todd's skill that is not played for laughs. As the Todd walks down the hallway with a couple of nurses he says, "The periampullary carcinoma patient had a failed palliatitive stenting of the common bile duct so this is what I want to do. I want to go ahead and prep him for a pyloris sparing pancreaticoduodenectomy. Thanks." Every word, even that pan-whatever, is pronounced correctly and without hesitation or any suggestion of humor.

* IntimateArtistry: The hospital has an annual photograph of the staff taken each year. However, the majority of the staff are apathetic about the picture, or even outright opposed to the concept, resulting in most of their pictures having only a scant few participants. When Carla finally does manage to get the entire staff to pose, the Janitor (Who was not in the staff pose) sabotages the picture; after Carla confronts him, the Janitor admits that he was angry that Carla had not tried to get him to pose in the first place, as he wanted to be included as part of the Sacred Heart family. A second picture was then arranged, this one including the Janitor. [[note]]In a StockFootageFailure, the Janitor actually can be seen standing in the first picture[[/note]]

* AwfulWeddedLife: Played for laughs in some of the {{Imagine Spot}}s when all the other characters imagine being married to Elliot. Kelso and Elliot are sitting across from each other at a huge dining table; Kelso knows that his wife hates him but he doesn't care. Dr. Cox is so annoyed at Elliot being his wife that he murders her within two days and considers going to the chair as a result WorthIt.

* YourSonAllAlong: When Jordan becomes pregnant the first time she claims that the father was someone she had a one-night stand with, but is unclear which one. It is actually Dr. Cox's baby, but she doesn't tell him in order to hold their [[ItMakesSenseInContext relationship together]]. Eventually it leaks to Dr. Cox that Jack is his son, at which point Dr. Cox is angry at Jordan for keeping it a secret from him.

** Although he initially appears unimpressed by J.D.'s "Welcome Back, Coxer" display, Dr. Cox later reveals to Elliot that it grew on him, to the point that he starts wearing one of the celebratory T-shirts.
--->'''Cox''': ''(sporting the shirt)'' Do you love it as much as I do?
** In the last episode of Season Eight, J.D. presents Dr. Cox with a book full of all of the insults/rants Perry has given to him over the years, and Cox is genuinely amused.

** Kelso's terrible treatment of his wife is always played for laughs, or else ignored in favour of claiming that he really does love her.
