With Scrubs (possibly) coming to a conclusion, we decided it would be fitting to share our list of our Favorite episodes of the series.
See if you agree and share your own in comments!
My Occurrence (1.22) - The first episode where Jordan's brother, Ben Sullivan (Brendan Fraser) appears. In this episode, though Ben is admitted for a minor accident, JD learns that he actually has leukemia...and because he likes him so much, refuses to accept it. Trivia just learned: All of the pictures Ben was taking in this episode where actually taken by Brendan Fraser!
His Story (2.15) - Notice how this episode title is one of the few (7 total; 1 in each season excluding the first) episodes of the series that doesn't begin with "My"? This is the first one of these such episodes...and its narrated by Dr. Cox, who as of late is feeling all of the pressures of his job. Definitely a well thought out episode and a nice change of pace to hear a non-JD POV.
My Screw Up (3.14) - I might be wrong, but I think episode is widely accepted as the finest of the series. It's the one where Jordan's brother from 1.22 returns, and spoiler alert, we ultimately learn he's dead (so 6th Sense!). Few TV series can actually make you laugh and cry in a single 30 minutes...and this episode of Scrubs did just that.
My Way Home (5.7) - A fun homage to The Wizard of Oz where Carla is searching for courage, Turk for a heart (an actual one for a patient), Elliot for brains (to lead a session that she is nervous about) and JD...well...he just wants to go home!
My Lunch (5.20) - This episode, and the next I listed, go hand in hand. It's this episode that 3 patients die after organs they were supposed to receive become contaminated by rabies. This is also the episode that "The Fray's" 'How to Save a Life' plays at the end, if it helps you to remember it better. JD also doesn't want to deal with an annoying patient that he encounters outside the hospital (which turns out to be a tragic error)...and the show finally addresses the possibility of The Todd being gay.
My Fallen Idol (5.21) - The follow up to "My Lunch", where after losing 3 patients, Cox decides to quit medicine and turn to booze. What's more, he finally accepts help from JD. Again, one of the few legitimate laugh/cry episodes.
J.D.'s Narration: Maybe he just needed time to heal, or maybe he just needed to see how much everybody cared. But I'd like to believe that it was because of me that he was finally able to say this:
Dr. Cox: You don't drink scotch.
My Musical (6.6) - Few shows have ever actually pulled off the musical episode with class. Buffy the Vampire Slayer did it...and Scrubs did it. My Musical was clever and funny...definitely one of the finest of the series!
What are your favorite episodes of Scrubs? Would you prefer that tonight's episode actually is the series finale (the show's future still remains in limbo)?
