Howard then wondered how JD's feud with Jared Fox was going, so JD told the crew that he was annoyed to even share space with Jared at Rick's Cabaret. Gary said JD doesn't even acknowledge Jared when he's in the office: When Jared says hello, JD just turns his chair away. Artie asked JD why he would sell the $500 Barney's gift certificate he gave him for Christmas to Jared for $250, so JD explained he was still friends with Jared at the time (and JD never shops at Barney's).
Jared Confronts JD
Later, Jared stopped by to vent about JD's "feud" with him, saying he didn't have a problem with JD, but he wants JD to stop trashing him. JD said, "I have no response. He got his story out, and now he's on the air. It's weird around the office now because people like Will are trying to start shit [between us]." Howard asked JD if he was jealous of Jared bedding a Penthouse Pet, and JD admitted he was; "Of course."
JD added that he had a problem with the way Jared acts and speaks to him, citing the time Jared semi-seriously wore a "pimp" costume to a Sirius Halloween party. Howard laughed that it might be easier on JD if Jared dressed as Cinderella next year. Jared wondered if he was being a jerk when he tried to help JD put a professional sheen on his performance review self-evaluation, but JD said, "That's when we were friends."
