Did You Know?

JD's father's (John Ritter) final line when he asks JD to pull his finger and then says, "I pooed a little," was totally improvised and Zach Braff had to bite the insides of his cheeks to stop himself laughing.See more »
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: The x-ray with the show's title shown in the beginning is turned the wrong way: the heart should be seen on the right hand side. This was an intentional mistake put in by creator Bill Lawrence to represent the core idea of the show: young doctors in over their heads. Bill Lawrence reminds viewers that this goof was completely intentional in interviews, DVD commentaries, and virtually any other available opportunity.See more »

So good, just so good..., 14 June 2004
Author: Springie from Israel

I always thought that Scrubs is a great TV show, not only for the great acting and the funny scripts, but also for showing what working in a hospital is really like. Every doctor will say that "life is not like ER", and scrubs didn't take the whole heroic position and the action-drama scenes, that frankly, is much less common in hospitals than an old man with diarrhea, reflux, colitis or other not so very "photographic" diseases.

the first season was great, and the second season opening was AMAZING, but i felt that during the second season the show became a little "routinic". Season 3, not only bringing new excitement to the show, included some unforgettable moments. Chapter 14, "My Screw Up", is one of the finest moments in TV in the last couple of years. Chapter 16, dealing with "what ifs" was also terrificly done.

Taking you from a wild laughter, through a smile, a breath taking moment, empathy, sadness, and even tears (in that specific episode mentioned), Scrubs is one of the best shows running nowadays...
