The backdrop for this episode is the hospital's inquest into the death of a patient. Who is responsible: J.D., Turk, Elliot or Carla? But, that has basically very little to do with what is going on. Jason Bateman makes a memorable appearance as J.D.'s patient who refuses to give him a thank you after J.D. cures him. Bateman, who plays an ostrich owning garbage man, offers some of the best lines of the episode. Hopefully, Bateman will make another appearance on Scrubs before the show ends.
The writing for this episode was phenomenal. Disparate and ridiculously hilarious storylines are woven together nicely by use of the hospital inquest. One of my favorite episodes.
