Did You Know?


JD flashes back to when he and Turk were in college. In several shots there are posters indicating the College of William and Mary (W&M with trademark feathers and Tribe, which is the William and Mary mascot). Creator Bill Lawrence went to William & Mary, so he made Turk & JD alumni as well. See more »


In several scenes, the door to Private Brian Dancer's room opens inward to his room; however, for a few scenes - like when J.D. opens the door and sends the fishbowl sliding across the floor, the door opens outward to the hall. See more »


Private Brian Dancer: Can you sign this picture? I promise I'll put it up in my barracks.
Dr. Elliot Reid: Do you want me to start with how I still can't walk straight and then segue into an anecdote about how you played my tush like a bongo until I cried out in pleasure-pain?
Private Brian Dancer: What?
Dr. Elliot Reid: All your army buddies are going to see it. I assume you want it filthy.
Private Brian Dancer: Oh no, filthy's fine.

Scrubs falling apart?
15 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a follow up to the flash back we were treated to another awful episode. I am a die hard scrubs fan, and that is what is making this season so painful. The season had some high points, but this episode underscored that they are just grasping at straws. The episode seemed slapped together. There was absolutely no cohesion to the story, the janitor story-line was about 8 minutes too long out of probably about 9. The jokes were weak, the Stacy storyline was very overdone. It was very much just 5 minutes of material stretched out to cover the 21 or 22 minutes of time they had to fill. Scrubs has gone from one of the best comedies on TV to just a brand they are trying to squeeze the last few dollars out of, viewers be d***ed.

Just terrible, Scrubs needs to pull back together or just call it what it is and wrap the show up.
