Trivia

In one episode, J.D. daydreams about winning an award at a ceremony hosted by Dr. Cox. When he breaks out of his trance, he smirks and utters to himself "Take that, Tony Shalhoub!" This is a comic reference to the fact that Zach Braff lost his only Primetime Emmy nomination for this show to Shalhoub for his role in Monk (2002), as well as the fact that Shalhoub won a grand total of three Emmys for this role by the end of the show's run.

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

Carla: Well?
Dr. Cox: I'm sorry, would you please repeat the question?
Carla: Are you just gonna roll over like that?
Jordan: That's weird, I asked him the same thing last night.
Carla: Where's the outrage? The anger? The hate?
Jordan: Again, last night!
Carla: You've gone soft.
Jordan: [Gasps] Okay, now it's getting spooky.

Not actually a sitcom...
12 December 2004 | by jakebdSee all my reviews

Let me start off by saying that I adore this show. Really, I'm absolutely enthralled by it. Here's the thing, it's not really a sitcom. If you're a fan of straight zannyness and a brand new plot with each episode, this isn't really the show for you.

Sitcom, or situation comedy, is comedy of the moment. It is to say that nothing that has happened previously in the series is the reason for what's happening now. Scrubs, on the other hand, involves a rather strong continuing plot line and character arcs that encompass a season. The characters change and grow over time.

For me, since, as I said, I am devoted to the show, this is fantastic. I watch it every week and I get a bit more of the story to file away in my head thing. However, if you're just tuning in for the first time, you might not like the show quite so much. All I can say is, give it time. Let it grow on you a bit before you cast judgment. Because really, the show is good. But tuning in for one episode won't really tell you that.
