Implied but not seen in season 6's "My Cold Shower"--while imagining what being married to Elliot would be like, Dr. Cox pictures her freaking out over the order of a cracker stack two days into the marriage. He's seen gripping a knife tightly, then it cuts to him being escorted away from a crime scene with a big grin on his face--the sequence is played for laughs and goes by within about 15 seconds.

It’s implied that the janitor captures and kills perfectly healthy squirrels and other animals and taxidermies them.

Turk and JD keep a taxidermied Golden Retriever in their apartment starting all the way from the beginning.

The Janitor has squirrel taxidermy as a hobby in later seasons--he turns them into things like pencil cases. This is played for laughs.

There is an ongoing joke early in the show where they put a taxidermied dog in front of doors and such to surprise other people. It is mild but they try to cut the scene a bit jump scarey sometimes, with a scream and sudden zoom

Several patients die starting in season one, most of them white.

Laverne, a supporting character and black woman, dies in season 6's "My Long Goodbye"--as it is season six, many deaths have preceded hers.

Sometimes women seen in their underwear, and it's not casual undressing ready for bed type, the way they strip is deliberate for viewers, plus some strong sexual references.

Due to the nature of the medical show genre, some episodes are bound to end in tragedy as doctors find they can't save everyone.
