(J.D.'s ending inner monologue)
Unfortunately around here things don't always end as neat and tidy as they do in sitcoms. Relationships aren't always magically fixed in 30 minutes, you have to work on them, problems don't always have easy solutions and around here nice people don't always get better. At times like that its comforting to know that it's always one thing that can pick your spirits up.
(Ends with J.D. watching a sitcom)
