like always....hilarious comedy, excellent drama
31 August 2009 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

this isn't scrubs best episode, but stills being very close for being that one, all the plot its pointing a problem of how J.D interacts with an Elliot friend just after Keith propose to Elliot, the whole episode its full of fantasies of some characters picturing their selves being married with Elliot, the end its the great part of this episode, because it explains how each one oh us has its own cold shower, and for J.D the cold shower its just getting harder and always scrubs is full of things that had happened to us, they face reality with comedy, although they've notice that, they know that even in hospitals crap matter how fun we are...
