Trivia

The officiant at the wedding of Lady and The Janitor was Bill Lawrence. At the beginning of the ceremony, he says it's "time to join you two in marriage as only the creator can." See more »

Goofs

Dr. Kelso's position as chief of medicine would preclude him from taking such a hands-on day to day role in the hospital, particularly in training the interns. This would be handled by a lower level staff member such as Dr. Cox. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Cox: You'd better go ahead and enjoy this while you can, Bob, because if your evil genie goes ahead and grants your wish and I'm gone forever, then the only one you're going to be able to contend with around here is yourself. And when you really get to know *that* person, oh, dear God, you'll scream so loud that Satan will want to tear up that contract he made with you at birth just so he can get some sleep.

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.
