Trivia

In this episode that parodies The Wizard of Oz (1939), Turk is trying to convince a father to turn off his son's life support so his heart can used in a transplant. The patient's name is Ray Bolger, also the name of the actor who played "The Scarecrow". See more »

Goofs

Part of the plot surrounds a family agonizing over a decision to "pull the plug" on their brain-dead son. If a patient is brain-dead, there is never a question as to whether to withdraw life support. A brain-dead patient is medically and legally dead. See more »

Quotes

J.D.: [to Keith] Why would you page me?
Dr. Cox: Because I told him to, and I know what you're thinking Dorothy, why would I have your intern call you in on one of your very precious days off for something so gosh darn trivial. But the real question ought to be: why when YOU were an intern did you call me in time, after time, after time, after time.

Best Episode
16 December 2006 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is by far my favorite one. It's probably not the funniest episode of all, probably not the most meaningful one either. But it just has absolutely no flaws. There's plenty of humor throughout, the change from the Dr. Cox "I'll do whatever I can to torment the group" attitude to the Dr. Cox "Ok, someone's in trouble and I need to help them" attitude (the sign of all great episodes), and a brilliant parallel to the Wizard of Oz. Also, any episode that includes Ted's band has to get a slight bump in ranking, and the a Capella version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" is a nice touch. Bottom line is that this episode could be shown to someone who has never seen the show before as the one that best captures what the show really is.
