  • One of my all-time favourites.

    This was certainly one of the sadder, and naturally more affecting episodes of Scrubs, paving the way for a perhaps more celebratory finale. J.D. decides to take a job at another hospital, and fights with Turk while Elliot and Dr Cox try to deal with Denise after she makes a mistake. It was nice to see it sort-of acknowledged that after all these years Dr Cox is sad to see his protegee (yep, said it) leave, even if he didn't reply to JD's goodbye in the short-but-moving penultimate scene. Some awesome direction too from Zach Braff - loved the montage of JD buying and furnishing a house! More drama in the JD/Turk bromance and one of the funniest fantasies for a while - with the Janitor chained up like a dog! Haha, Neil Flynn brought home the comedy all right. Great set up for the finale - I'm hoping for hugs, then tears. Then more hugs.
