Trivia

Includes several references to Friends (1994), including numerous references to Elliot and J.D. being like Rachel and Ross. Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry, who played Monica and Chandler on Friends (1994), also guest starred on this show. See more »

Goofs

The chest x-ray in the credits is backwards (the heart is to the right). There is a very slight possibility of "dextrocardia" or "situs inversus" (when the heart is turned in the wrong direction), but this is rare enough that it is simply an error. See more »

Quotes

J.D.: [J.D. looks over at Doug, all smiles, who's dialing the phone on the desk] What are you doing?
Doug: [excited] I'm calling my dad!

An Elaborate Comedic Symphony
28 May 2005 | by abutterwSee all my reviews

'Scrubs' is a look at the world through the eyes of an intern. Not some crusty cop or a desperate housewife, but an intern.

An intern with no special abilities or powers. An intern who goes to a hospital.

And somehow, this creates one of the best shows on TV.

J.D.(Zach Braff) is an intern at Sacred Hearts Hospital. He's surrounded by a cynical janitor, a belligerent head M.D., a sarcastic mentor, and a few other interns. Though this all may seem like a familiar and done-before formula, 'Scrubs' makes the whole thing seem fresh, new, and radiant.

The show subtlety examines many major issues (authority complex, race, etc.) without making it seem preachy. To do this well is itself a fantastic achievement.

This show also does something incredible: make actors you may recognize from small parts in movies shine. Zach Braff, John C. McGinley, and so many others.

Worth your time in spades.
