Probably the best episode I've ever seen on ANY series
15 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Who would have thought it would end like it did when the episode first starts?

This episode has everything a MOVIE should have: comedy, intrigue, an excellent story and 'twist', romance and something else you should find on your own (not wanting to spoil).

If you like scrubs or have some idea of how the characters are with each other, damn even if you don't like it, you should give this episode a try.

Scrubs has that little something many comedic series can't achieve: when it's meant to be serious, it is and with excellency. This episode, more than others will make you see a side of Cox you never thought you'd see and probably won't see again.

It's THAT good.
