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.
