John C. McGinnley's Performance
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

McGinnley's character Dr. Cox goes through a 180 degree transformation in "My Lunch." Throughout the history of Scrubs, Dr. Cox has consistently been a static character, especially when compared to JD, Turk, Carla, and Elliot, who develop in each episode, making their characters static. He is abrasive, brash and hard to deal with. He has a God complex and knows that he is the best at Sacred Heart. And this never changes. For those who have seen All in the Family, you know that Edith Bunker is static; she is always subservient to Archie. In one particular episode, when Archie forges he signature, she steps outside of her box and becomes irate at Archie. The viewer is taken aback when Edith stands up for her self and becomes "someone else." The writers of Scrubs do the same thing with Cox, who becomes less God-like and is allowed to suffer.

McGinnley's performance allows this episode to rank among the greatest on Television's history.
