  • "What would you do with 100 million dollars?"

    So much unforgettable things in this episode, and they are held by flashbacks and hilarious fantasies. This episode had all of the above in what makes Scrubs episodes great. Being emotional, hilarity, directing, writing, plot. The plot itself was genius. A patient dies, and Turk, Elliot, JD, and Carla are all held in to see who's fault it is. This is shown in flashbacks while they are all in the room trying to figure out who's fault it is. All plots were flawless.

    Lets start off with Carla's plot: "What would you do with 100 million dollars?" The janitor would train a shark to kill JD. Cox would buy an impenetrable glass to trap Jordan when she's being annoying. Elliot would buy "the right man" Carla would make Turk pregnant, and JD would do research so he separate his head from his body and still live. All the fantasies were absolutely hilarious! The whole nursing staff and interns chip in to buy lottery tickets. They are almost sure they are going to win.

    Meanwhile Elliot makes out with a random guy and didn't realize he had a wife. So his wife hunts for her to "kill" her throughout the episode. Elliot the whore. She ties her up with tape in the end, which i found absolutely hilarious. Turk & JD go to a patient's house when he didn't thank JD after leaving the hospital, they are stuck in a predicament when Jason Bateman's (the patient) character has a bunch of ostriches that taunt JD and Turk. The plot was a bit too ridiculous for my liking, but it fit, and I love Jason Bateman so it was good. In a way it was everyone's fault, since Elliot was tied up, Carla was losing the lottery, Turk was stuck in traffic, and JD was thanking garbage man. In the end they find out it was someone else's fault, but inside they know it was their fault, because of Dr. Cox. It continues to haunt them, which was an amazing ending to this episode, it tied everything up perfectly. Amazing unforgettable episode.
