Trivia

The butterfly theme refers to "the butterfly effect" used in chaos theory, where a very small change in the initial settings may create a significantly different outcome. While the change in this episode is where the butterfly lands, "the very small change" is figurative and does not really have to be butterfly-related. See more »

Goofs

In the first variation of events, Dr. Kelso questions Carla as to why she has yet to clock out 9 minutes after her shift ended. In the second variation of events, which is supposed to have begun 10 minutes later than the first variation owing to the handshake with the Janitor, Dr. Kelso again questions Carla about why she has yet to clock out 9 minutes after her shift ends, when it should have in fact been 19 minutes.

Great episode *watch for spoilers*

*watch for spoilers*

Ah, the famous Butterfly Effect. The episode demonstrates that the simple decision of a butterfly can change a whole series of events. In this episode the outcome is inevitable, sadly enough.

I especially like the way the contrast between the timelines are made in the jokes, such as JD claiming he is "a lefty" in the first and "a righty" in the second, or Carla demanding two opposites from Turk. What less to expect from the brilliant writers of Scrubs?
