Joining the rumpled J.D. at Sacred Heart Hospital are fellow residents Chris Turk - J.D.'s college buddy who is part of the elite surgical group - and the beautiful, but socially awkward, Elliot Reid.

J.D. and Turk enter their third-year residencies relatively confident, but Elliot is still as insecure and down in the dumps as ever - and running into Sean (guest star Scott Foley) with his new girlfriend, doesn't help.

So she makes some drastic changes in her life.
