Dr. Kelso: Well, that's okay, Laverne, I didn't recognize you without your mini-TV and your feet up.

"Scrubs: My T.C.W. (#2.18)" (2003)
J.D.: Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! And shut up! Okay? Who are you people to give me advice about anything? All you do is just bitch about your relationships all day long!
[to Dr. Cox]
J.D.: And you know what? Glare all you want, Big Dog, okay, cause I'm not afraid of you. Oh, no! Jordan's only paying attention to the baby! That must be so hard for Dr. Look-At-Me! Isn't it? Look at me!
[to Turk and Carla]
J.D.: And you two? Come on, you're arguing since you got engaged? Wow, you're probably the first couple that's ever done that, ever! It can't be that you're just scared, is it?
[to Elliot]
J.D.: And you! Y-you know what, let's just - let's just forget for one second that a month ago you told me you couldn't be in a relationship with anyone. Because, for me, it's actually fun to watch you sabotage a relationship from the outside, it really is. Honestly, the only thing that gives me comfort, you guys, is while I'm sitting at home, staring at the ceiling, just wishing that I had someone to talk to, is knowing that none of you idiots realize how lucky you are!

Dr. Cox: [JD recently identified a disease in a patient from watching a TV show and Dr. Cox wants to prove it was a fluke] Here's your chance. Two identical patients. I say we divide 'em up, just like in "The Parent Trap". One goes with the sexy, freewheeling bachelor dad, hello. The other goes with the whiny, neurotic, sexually repressed mom, oh, just you all over. Oh, and I checked tonight's TV listings. There is no special on that disease, so you're gonna wanna stop at the Blockbuster.
J.D.: Please, I know all there is to know about thrombotic thrombo cyto... cytop top top top... toppy... toppy.
Nurse Roberts: Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.

J.D.: And Laverne, I'm sorry I'm bein' such a pain about this guy, it's just that Dr. Cox and I have this little competition goin', and... I know that probably seems insensitive to you...

Nurse Carla Espinosa: But he's not my friend. My friends can make fun of me whenever they want.
Dr. Elliot Reid: Really? Well in that case you're a know-it-all smartypants and if you're not telling someone what to do, you're probably not talking.
Nurse Carla Espinosa: Okay, I guess I can be a little bossy.
Nurse Laverne Roberts: A little? Girl, please. If you met Jesus hisself, you'd be trying to tell him where to park his donkey.
J.D.: Oh, are we allowed to do this now? What about that whole like, hands on the hips Carla from the block thing she does when she's mad when she's like
[imitating]
J.D.: "oh Bambi, you do not want to mess with me right now."
Dr. Doug Murphy: [laughs] You do sound like that.
Nurse Carla Espinosa: [with her hand on her hip] Careful, Doug, we are not that close yet.
Dr. Elliot Reid, J.D.: [laughing and mocking] Careful, Doug. Doug, wussup. Doug, you better be careful. Mm-hmm. 'Cause I'm Carla.


"Scrubs: My Missed Perception (#5.6)" (2006)
Dr. Christopher Turk: Where's the donut truck? I was paged there was a donut track out here!
Dr. Elliot Reid: I got paged there was a handbag sample sale!
Dr. Todd Quinlan: Where's the booby-touching booth?

Nurse Laverne Roberts: Paris and Nikki were not amused.
Nurse Carla Espinosa: You named your breasts after the Hilton sisters?
Nurse Laverne Roberts: Other way around, sugar.
Ted Buckland: Ladies, this hospital's policy on sexual harassment is well-established, plus -
Dr. Bob Kelso: [cuts Ted off] I'll handle this. I think what Garfunkel here is trying to say is that you should all take a second, think seriously about what is really bothering you and then have a big, group unbunching of your panties.

Dr. John 'J.D.' Dorian: Look, Elliot, I...

Dr. Elliot Reid: Dr Cox, I lost my apartment and so I was just needing a place to stay...
Dr. Perry Cox: so you went over to your "friend"'s house and cried on his shoulder, boo-hoo... wham! You
[to JD]
Dr. Perry Cox: , of course, comforted her because she was weak and vulnerable and blah, blah, blah, nerdy sex... the end. Dear Lord, Laverne, how in God's name do you listen to this crap all day long?

Dr. Perry Cox: [going away] Oh, you're so right...

J.D.: I know.
[as Kim speaks too]
J.D.: Appletinis.
Dr. Kim Briggs: [as J.D. Speaks too] Abortion... what?
J.D.: I though that we could discuss abortion over Appletinis.
Nurse Laverne Roberts: Did somebody just say "abortion"?
Dr. Kim Briggs: Laverne, with all due respect, this is none of your business... or Jesus'.
Nurse Laverne Roberts: [puts a Jesus statue on the counter] I believe he would beg to differ...
[J.D.' fantasy starts]
Jesus: She's right, J.D., every life is precious.
J.D.: But what if having this baby is a huge mistake for us?
Jesus: [sighs tiredly, massages his own eyes and stretches from stress] OK... I'm gonna make this real simple: no abortion, OK?
J.D.: But what if...
Jesus: [in a high-pitched voice] No abortions...
J.D.: Let me finish... what if the parents were, like, abusive drug-addicts who would neglect their kid?
Jesus: Oh, well, in that case it'd be OK.
J.D.: Really?
Jesus: No abortions! How are you not getting this?
[J.D.'s fantasy ends]

Dr. John "J.D." Dorian: [to himself] And here come the fireworks...

Dr. John "J.D." Dorian: [to himself] Cool.
Nurse Laverne Roberts: Damn.
