Quotes

Turk: Now how do I tell these people they should let their son go?
J.D.: Just try and imagine what they're going through. I mean, sometimes I think about what it's gonna be like when you die.
Turk: Because you think I'm going first due to my Diabetes.
J.D.: Right. And where do we meet up in heaven?
Turk: At the milkshake pool on the lesbian cloud!
J.D.: I'll see you there playa! I love religion. The point is Turk, if someone tried to pull the plug on you without being totally honest with me, you know where they'd end up?

A Perfect Episode
5 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In every sense of the word, this episode of Scrubs is perfect. "My Way Home" is a cross-section of why I love this show, and why it will go down in the anneals of television history as one of the greatest shows off all time. Perfectly balancing an ingeniously comedic plot with maudlin undertones, the likes of which haven't been seen since the best episodes of M*A*S*H. The "Wizard of Oz" theme although heavily followed is not overdone, and uses it like a template as in other works nodding to great stories of years past to tell a original tale of morality like most other episodes of "Scrubs". In addition to the story, the directing lends much to "my way home" in the way of subtle changes to camera filters and little touches in the like. If your goal is to introduce a friend to "Scrubs", throw this one at them first, smart money says this episode will get them hooked.
