Did You Know?


The character of Eric McNair is actually named after a real-life fan of the show, who asked the writing staff to do so in a Q&A in celebration of their 100th episode. See more »


The janitor intuitively knew what time it was when Dr. Kelso asked. Later in the episode, he had to ask Dr. Cox what time it was. See more »


Dr. Cox: [Dr. Cox and JD examine a patient with locked-in syndrome, who communicates via computer] Go ahead and check Mr. McNair's blood pressure, please, Eva.
Mr. McNair: I don't get it - Why does he call you a girl's name?
J.D.: Thank you for asking, Mr. McNair. You see, the thing about Dr. Cox is that, the closer he feels to a person, the more he needs to push them away. So when he calls me Eva, he's actually saying, "JD, I care about you!" Vulnerable people like Dr. Cox...
Mr. McNair: Oh my god! I get it now, Carol. Carol, Carol,...

One Of Their Best Episodes
10 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the best episodes of Scrubs. It's one of the multiple "His/Her" story episodes told from the point of view of a character other then the usual JD. This one is told from the character of the Janitor. It starts off with JD trying to make a video of the hospital to send to his mother. He ends up sleeping on a bench during his break at which point the Janitor kidnaps him and hides him in a water tank for the day. The Janitor then sets out to prove that without JD around, he can make a difference at the hospital after assisting with holding down a seizure patient. When he realizes that none of the doctors take him seriously and only pity him he spend time with Mr. McNair, who suffers from locked in syndrome, so he can't talk back to anyone without him computer. What makes this episode great is that we finally get to see the workings of the Janitor's mind. We realize how much pride he does take in working at the hospital, and that he wants to make an impact, and not just be seen as the guy with the mop. The episode ends with JD being released from the tank and taking over narration. Mr. McNair gets his computer back and thanks the Janitor for being there, the first real show of the appreciation he's seen in a while. Great Episode.
