"Sesame Street Theme" by Joshua Radin (Closing scenes)
In this episode, we learn from Turk's list that Ed's last name is Dhandapani and that Katie's last name is Collins.
J.D.'s narration: And then I realized why I'd thought about Sesame Street all day. In a way, you can learn everything you need to know from watching it as a kid. Like, always play nice. Always try your hardest. And even, it's okay to cry.
J.D.: I think I see what the problem is. (Hangs up the radiography) You have a hand inside of you.
Muppet: That explains SO many things.
Elliot: Hey, did you guys hear the story of the interviews for the new Chief of Medicine?
Janitor: Actually, they already found someone.
(Oscar the Grouch comes out from the Janitor's cleaning supplies)
Oscar: That's right, knuckleheads. There's a new Chief in town.
Janitor: That was a mistake.
Oscar: Uggh. I'll be watching you, John Dorian. And guess what? My eyes never close!
Elmo: Yay, she gets it! She gets it! Yeah baby! Yeah baby! Yeah baby! Thank you. (Leans on Denise's breasts)
J.D.: Okay, easy buddy.
Elmo: What, is she your woman?!
J.D.: Don't you always fantasize around with the muppets?
Turk: No, I'm straight.
J.D.: I grew up on the streets. Not the hood! The Seasme Street!
J.D.: Chicks dig the extra fuzz.
Grover: Tell me about it.
Dr. Cox: Back to this intern that I-
Carla: -no I don't want to play your "why do I hate this intern game." It's no fun and nobody ever wins.
Dr. Cox: Fine. I need to find somebody who's more qualified to talk about hate anyway.
Turk: (to Elliot) Carla dragged me to the on-call room. Stripped buck naked. Did a little belly dance and then said, "this is for Elliot." Then took a nap. What the hell did I do to you?
Dr. Cox: Look. You and I are alike in a lot of ways.
Janitor: We both harbor an internal struggle between the desire to do good and the urge to become a master criminal.
Dr. Cox: (talking about Ed) That's it. I know why I hate him.
Janitor: Way to go! Want to borrow my plunger? Form a perfect seal around his mouth then...three times, and his Adam's apple pops right out. (Dr. Cox grabs the plunger and walks away) Theoretically.
J.D.'s narration: For me, I was just hoping to figure out a way to tell Denise that the first patient we were treating together was going to die.
J.D.: Listen, Joe, Mr. Fremont's scan came back and his lungs are covered with lesions. He doesn't have a lot of time.
J.D.'s narration: I was glad I was there, because I knew it would be hard for her to deal with.
Denise: Huh. Sucks to be him.
J.D.'s narration: Or not.
(J.D. and Turk are looking at a photo on a cell phone)
Elliot: Hey, what are you guys looking at? Oh my god, is that a picture of a poo?
Turk: That's not just any poo, Elliot. That's Izzie's first poo in a potty.
J.D.: I can't take my eyes off of it. It's gorgeous. Oh, I accidentally pressed Send.
(Carla, the Janitor, Dr. Cox and Ed are all checking their cell phones)
Janitor: They're back!
Dr. Cox: Jack's are bigger.
Ed: Just found my new screensaver.
Carla: (talking about Ed) So maybe you don't like him because he's a freaky stoner weirdo.
Dr. Cox: No. Surprisingly, that tickles me.
Denise: You called me "Jo"!
J.D.: Do you not like that as a new nickname?
Denise: Just a little butch. I like banging dudes.
J.D.: I've heard that's nice.
J.D.: Don't let those idiots in radiology hold you up.
Denise: Dr. Dorian. If they pull any crap, I'll bust some heads.
J.D.'s narration: Ah. She really is like having my very own "Jo" from "Facts of Life."
Katie: Dr. Cox. I just wanted to tell you I really enjoyed rounds this morning and I'm going to work harder so you don't just think of me as a...what was it?
Dr. Cox: A helpless, vapid, incompetent ass-kisser.
Katie: Actually, I don't remember the ass-kisser part.
Dr. Cox: That's because I just added it now.
Katie: It's great. Makes it hurt more.
Dr. Cox: Good.
Dr. Cox: So, Ed, after you've placed a central line on that patient, come and find me and let me know whether or not you've killed him.
Denise: (to J.D.) By the way, how can you stand these scrubs. Mine are so far up my butt right now, I can taste them in my throat.
J.D.: I really want you to be yourself around me.
Denise: You really mean that, sir?
J.D.'s narration: Sir. Loving this girl's energy.
J.D.: I mean every word, young miss.
Denise: Well buddy, you have no idea how psyched I am to hear that. I mean, I spent four years in med school, talking like this, so I wouldn't threaten all the male teachers who pee in their pants every time they're even near a strong woman.
J.D.: Then I thought, why not pick a woman. Have a little feminine energy in my life.
Elliot: Oh, you mean like the kind of energy that seeps out of every pore of your body?
J.D.: Elliot. Why?
Elliot: (pointing to Dr. Cox) You knew that he was going to say it. I thought it would hurt less coming from me.
J.D.: Why, thank you.
Dr. Cox: (to the interns) Before we do rounds today, who watches "Deal or No Deal"?
(An intern raises his hand)
Dr. Cox: Get out.
This isn't the first time Scrubs and the Muppets have collided. In A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, Miss Piggy appears as an "extra" until Kermit takes her away.
