  • Dumb episode..

    5.0
    It's no rocket science to expect the second episode of the day to make your day after a rather boring first one. Though we get JD back in business here, there wasn't a good enough storyline to weave to old magic.



    The annoying new interns are sort of glorified in this new season as regular characters, as compared to the older ones who were simply there as Dr. Cox's punching bag. When your story starts to involve them more, the main characters who made the show start to look dumb. We've already seen an office episode using the roast theme, and this one was one halfhearted attempt at comedy. I usually find Scrubs creates an drama-like effect toward the end explaining some subtle themes mostly using medical cases. But this time around, the one involving the girl with the immune system disorder, was again an unconnected part in the whole scheme of things. Its not business as usual at Scrubs.moreless
  • Splendid! Bring on the Guy Love!

    10
    With this series returning back to the good old days of Scrubs. This episode was the pinnacle of why I have enjoyed watching the show for eight glorious years. It can be define in just two words, why I watch the show and that is because of the 'Guy Love'. The only sniffle of complaint that I could've make about the current series, is that there has not been much interaction between J.D and Turk. But with this episode, the 'Guy Love' was back and in full force. The chemistry between these characters is so unique and memorizing that it put the other stories of the episode (Carla and her long grey chest whisker and Dr. Reid telling the Interns to get a life)in the shade of the impressive duo. Don't get me wrong there were moments in these stories that made me giggle, like with Kelso having his secret phone call with the muffin. So kudos to the Bill Lawerence, Zach Braff and Donald Faison for bringing us the finest 'Bromance' of the 21st Century.



    In the story of the interns of Dr. Day and Dr. Mahoney working together to help a patient, but from this they gain repect from each other and the brewings of a new friendship. It might just be me, but the interns are taking their time to grow on me. Dr. Mahoney may have grown on me already with her certain type of coldness. But again it might just be me, but Dr Sonny Day will take some time to grow me with her current rate, with her showing too much sunshine for this grumpy man to handle. But this is a small gripe to what was a terrific episode and hopefully not the last one in the current series.



    Oh! One more thing, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see the Janitor's book of weird stuff.moreless

    "It's guy love!" It was nice to see the song come back to life after using in the season 6 musical, it worked out perfectly here. The new interns are becoming the main focus of the show, I'm not sure if I like this, it seems as though Turk, JD, Elliot, and Carla are just the side characters comparing to the new interns. I feel like I'm watching season one of a spin off of Scrubs, which coincidentally happens next season. Yet another character is absent: Dr. Cox. Why can't all the characters be in one episode just like the good old days when this show was on NBC? I don't know, this episode was still good, but they really got to bring the focus back on the main characters. All the plots were good except for Carla's. Plucking out a boob hair and pretending it never happened. Really?moreless

  • JD and Turk head up the senior staff roast performed by the interns. Elliott tries to dag Denise away from her work and go out to live her life. Sunny gets on denises nerves.moreless

    9.0
    Of the two eps on offer last night this one was the better of the two as the laugh were more consistent and still provided that great message to each character to continue to evolve.



    This week JD and Turk head up the roast of the senior staff that is to be performed by the interns. Each intern needed to partner up with another and Denise is soon stuck with the ever rosy Sunny. They have been given the task of roasting JD and Turk. All the other skits get moderate laughs but off the cuff Denise kisses Sunny Alluding to JD and Turks friendship bein more that just a "bromance". They try to lower there PDA at work but find the going harder than they ever thought.



    Meanwhile Denise is devoted to her work and refuses to go out with the other interns for drnks after work. Elliott tells her to live her life but Denise just continues to work. She is then stuck with Sunny to help a patient with an irratic immune system who is stiffled by her mother. Denise and Sunny intend to make a stand but Elliott insists they do nothing. This patient teaches Denise more about heer devotion to her work than anyone and she the decides to take a break every once and a while.



    This ep was really solid and this season seems to now be truely more than making up for a disappointing seasns 6 and 7. One can only hope this trend continues.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Elliot is talking to Denise about the immune-compromised girl, she is wearing a different stethoscope in the shot where she says "After all, it's her daughter" than in the very next shot where she says "So I decided not to talk to her."

    • The Janitor: Maybe I was never in The Fugitive.

      In the season 3 episode "My Friend The Doctor", we see that the Janitor had a small part in that movie. In real life, Neil Flynn (the actor that plays him) had it.

    • Featured Music:
      "Guy Love" by Zach Braff and Donald Faison (J.D. and Turk hug). This song is sung by J.D. and Turk in the season six episode "My Musical".
      "Torn Blue Foam Couch" by Grand Archives (Closing scenes)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Elliot: Brianna should totally get to live her life, I'm gonna to talk to her mom... but you guys gotta do me a favor - she's really trying to get in my head with this whole "we're the same age" thing, so I'm just gonna start throwing out numbers, and you guys stop me whenever I get to the age you think I look like, okay? Twenty-two. Twenty-three. Twenty-four. Twenty-five. Twenty-five. Twenty-fi - you know, this is a really stupid game, okay? Aren't you guys late for some sketch show?
      Denise: Crap. (Runs away)
      Elliot: (Sighs) Idiots.

    • Denise: Anyone sitting here?
      Sunny: Not just anyone. You.
      Denise: Okay. No more talking till I'm drunk, okay.

    • Todd: I'm so proud of you, man. You know, I've always emulated you. I shave my privates bald to look like your head.
      Turk: Todd! I'm actually kind of touched.

    • Carla: Listen, this place can make anyone crazy. Once, after a double shift, I swore I went home and crawled into bed with Turk. Next thing, I woke up in the on call room, spooning Dr. Beardface. Now the guy's always slipping me hotel keys.

    • Denise: (to Brianna's mother) As much as I hate to agree with Dr. ...
      Sunny: Day.
      Denise: Your name is Sunny Day? (to Brianna's mother) Okay, as ridiculous as it was for her parents to name her that, I think what you're doing with Brianna is a thousand times worse.

    • Dr. Kelso: What do you want?
      Janitor: I'm getting ready to torture Nurse Chest Whiskers.

    • Janitor: (to Carla) Head games aren't going to work on me. Unfortunately for you, I have a photographic memory. For instance, I arrived here yesterday at 7.45 a.m. At 7.50 a.m. I took a nap. At 2.45 p.m. I awoke to find you plucking a comically large hair off of your baby feeder. I then took my afternoon nap, then I went on break, and then I went home. Couldn't sleep a wink. Damnedest thing.

    • Janitor: (to Carla) Unfortunately for you, milady, I saw what I saw. You either plucked a giant hair, or you have mini chest snakes.

    • Turk: Cathy, you're playing Elliot. So I want to see some bug eyes, alright. And, perfect. Plus find some cardboard. Stick it down the back of your pants, right. Make that ass flat, girl, let me see what you got right now. Yeah, we can go flatter.
      J.D.: We can go flatter.
      Turk: We can go flatter.
      J.D.: You know, I've chewed on that thing and it's flatter than day old beer.

    • Janitor: (to Carla) I think we should just get this out in the open. I saw you pluck your special hair the other day. I was there, I saw. Question is, what are we going to do about it? I have an idea. Let me speak first. May I? Good. I believe that you should give me the hair. Because I have been scrapbooking the most disgusting things that I could think of and I want to put it on the page in between my decayed molars and a snug, which is, a snail-slug hybrid that I was able to splice together in my garage. Unsuccessfully.

    • J.D.: Okay, well then let's cut the leukemia sketch.
      Turk: Dude, no! That sketch is gold.
      J.D.: Well if they're not naked, they're just sad and dying. What's funny about that?
      Turk: You make them British.
      J.D.: Good save. It's back in.

    • Elliot: You know, I used to use an incubator to keep my lunch warm. Until some whiny new mom complained that her premy smelt like a ham sandwich. Weird thing was, I had a tuna melt in there, not ham.

    • Denise: Okay, Mr. Rigo, I know you've been complaining about the bedpans being too cold, so I used an incubator in pediatrics to warm this bad boy up for you. Enjoy!
