Jack's new career wasn't as fun as the writers had hoped, so it was decided that he would leave nursing.



Episode Quotes
Jack: This is wrong. I didn't write this speech. And you know why? Because I couldn't think of any reasons why I wanted to be a nurse, because it wasn't my dream. I wanted to be an actor. But I let it slip away from me like... a soapy balloon. But standing here in front of all of you right now, reading words I don't believe and don't really understand makes me realize... I still want to be an actor.
Will: I had no idea he felt like that.
Jack: I love acting! I love the attention and the applause. When you're a nurse, the patient gets all the attention. No. This is not what I want. I'm sorry. I cannot live a lie.
