    • Judy: (referring to the musical episode of "Scrubs") It was such a crowning achievement with the musical. Bill [Lawrence] hired out a theater and everybody who was involved in it, from dancers to background, was there to watch it and celebrate it. It was like sitting in a theater on Broadway, with everybody laughing and watching and singing along.... It was really fantastic.

    • Judy: (Upon asking whether she was nervous that they were shooting a musical episode for "Scrubs") I was thrilled, I couldn't wait. In fact, that was one of the first things [I worried about] in the hospital, getting told I had to have surgery. Sarah Chalke called me on my cell phone and said, "Oh, my god, Judy, are you OK?" and I was blubbering in tears. Scrubs was wonderful about postponing, rearranging schedules around my surgery. Hearing "You will get to do your tango" was a very dramatic moment.

    • Judy: (referring to the musical episode of "Scrubs") It took like 10 hours to shoot that, from every angle possible, and the only thing that hurt after that was my feet. My hips didn't hurt at all, I was having such a blast, but my feet were throbbing to the lyrics by the end of the day.

    • Judy: (on her character in Scrubs) I really admire Carla, shes smart and sassy and a very good nurse, i like that she remains confident and unapologetic in the world.

  • Judy Reyes is a very talented actress, a wonderful singer and dancer and a very beautiful woman. She is one of my favorite TV show actresses.

    I haven't seen a lot of stuff Judy Reyes has done except for Scrubs - and I absoluteley love her on this show. She is a very talented actress and has a funny way that makes me laugh. She has a lot of comedy talent and can play the neurotic and crazy parts as good as the heart-warming and sad parts.

    As seen on the Scrubs episode "My Musical" she is a wonderful dancer and has got a very nice singing voice (She proved that before on Scrubs, I think). Her solo in the musical episode of Scrubs is still in my ears and impressed me very much.

    She is very beautiful and in my opionion very underated and not mentioned as often as for example Sarah Chalke is.

    I hope in future we'll see more of her and she will stay as nice as I think she is based on her interviews. And I think somehow that it is a good thing that there isn't that much hype about her because this way she can be regarded as the actress she is and not as another celebrity girl.moreless
