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 »

Quotes

Dr. Kelso: She likes to joke that I choked the last breath of life out of her long ago, and now she's just a shell of a woman. I think that's so cute... I called her Shelley. You know, when I call her that, sometimes she laughs so hard she cries.

Scrubs: The Best Television Show Ever. Period.
16 September 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thank Bill Lawrence with all my heart and soul for creating "Scrubs." Never before have I become so invested in characters that I actually cry when something happens to them. Well, not since Buffy, at least...

Anyway, Scrubs is a unique blend of in-your-face, slapstick, outrageous humour and tear-jerking, brilliantly acted drama. In the space of 5 seconds, the show can go from laughing your a** off to getting goosebumps from how moving it is.

Take for instance episode 12 of the 3rd season, "My Screwup." Don't worry, no spoilers, but in my opinion, this is the best episode of Scrubs (next to "My Lunch") just because of how absolutely hilarious it is for the majority, but at the end, all of a sudden, with one of the best cuts of all time, you, or at least I, suddenly find tears welling up in my eyes as realisation kicks in.

I recommend this show to everyone, and am constantly outraged how this show never wins an Emmy, they should have picked one up for every brilliant season this show brings out. It is without a doubt, the very best television show there has ever been. Here endeth the rant.
