Plot Overview

Both songs can be found on his album Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets.

  • The More You Know: J.D. has a brief fantasy about doing a public service announcement about Munchousen's Syndrome. This PSA is done in the style of NBC's The More You Know series of announcements, which features celebrities from NBC programs in stark backgrounds talking briefly about a disease or social issue. In real life, both Sarah Chalke and Donald Faison have done actual The More You Know PSAs.
