Makes me cry every time
21 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before this episode, my favorite episode of Scrubs was the episode with Michael J. Fox's first guest appearance. I thought that there was no way a prime time television show could produce such a powerful dramatic scene during a comedy.

Man, was I ever wrong.

McGinley's performance in this episode is just stellar. Every word is toned perfectly, his chops are first class, and every ounce of his final performance is so loaded with pain and guilt that I can't help but cry every time I see it.

I must have seen this episode a dozen times. Before this, the only performance that ever made me cry was Matt Damon and Robin Williams' "Not your fault" scene from Good Will Hunting. That's the level of power that this episode brings to television.
