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: You're black? 'Cause last I checked you had a nerdy white best friend, you enjoy Neil Diamond, and you damn sure act like a black guy and these are all characteristics of white guys. Please understand, I'm a huge supporter of the NAACP. If you're don't know what that stands for, it's the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. And quite frankly, I always thought they should change the 'colored people' to 'African Americans' but then of course it wouldn't be the NAACP it'd be...

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.
