Elliot meets a new patient, Sean Kelly, who she is immediately attracted to. They're both anal retentive, neurotic and single. Elliot gives off plenty of hints that she's interested in him, but Sean doesn't seem to notice. As a last ditch effort, she chases after him when he gets discharged from the hospital and orders him to ask her out. He does. Meanwhile, Turk and J.D. battle over one of J.D.'s patients. Mr. Hoffner has ulcerative colitis. J.D. wants him to continue a medical course of treatment with drugs while Turk wants to treat him with surgery. The rivalry escalates when J.D. and Turk and the other medical and surgical interns square off in a dance number, a la the Jets and the Knights in "West Side Story".
