  • Cox, JD, and Turk have lady troubles.

    Wow such a great ending to a good episode. This episode revolves around everyone's woman problems. Sarah Lancaster quest stars as the gift shop girl, Lisa. JD asks Lisa out on a date, but a problem arises when he can't get "it" up, because he feels as though the hospital is a monster, and it feeds on everyone's life. In this case, it fed on a lot people's love lives. Carla feels as though the magic is gone between her & Turk, when the sex isn't as great anymore. So they have relationship problems throughout the episode. Cox accidentally asks Jordan to move in with him, 'causing a whole lot of problems with him & Jordan. Jordan continues to be hormonal, and acting crazy. Meanwhile Elliot is homeless, and tries to find a place to live. She temporarily lives in the hospital, only to be kicked out by Kelso. Then she starts living in her moving van. JD offers her to live with him, she finally agrees. In the end, JD's problem isn't a problem anymore when he has sex with Elliot. The scene between Elliot & JD was amazing, it seems like they really connected, and it was nice to see them together again. Unfortunately, we know that they didn't work out last season, so I doubt they'll be working out this season. The Turk/Carla and Cox/Jordan relationship plots are both resolved by the end. A good episode, with a great concept, and a great ending that kept me guessing on what was going to happen in the next episode. Great episode overall.
  • Turk and Carla have relationship problems, as do Dr. Cox and Jordan. J.D. Elliot is forced to live in the back of a truck as she has no time to find another place, and J.D. loses his mojo while dating Lisa the gift-shop girl.

    In this episode, i really liked Elliot's plot. It's nice to see that she is now not depending on her father and his money anymore. I really dislike Lisa the Gift Shop girl. Not being she is JD's girlfriend, i just don't like her. There were other girlfriends on him i really did like! So, i'm glad that JD ended up in bed with Elliot in the end. I liked the storyline of Cox and Jordan. The Carla and Turk one, not so much. They've only been dating for a year and he already asks her to marry him? Only in TV land...
    Some jokes were really good though, but there were just a few plots i didn't enjoy that much
  • Fine example.

    Elliot still doesn't have a place to live. J.D. thinks he's lost his mojo when he can't even kiss the giftshop girl while they go out on a date. Turk and Carla are having romance problems, because she feels he's not being as generous to her as she is to him. And Dr. Cox freaks out when he lets Jordan move in to his place due to her pregnancy.


    Giftshop girl, another stunner! Dont know how JD pulls it off, I should stick on a JD wig and hit the town to try my luck! Good episode overall, 9/10.
  • Classic Episode: Laughed all the way through it "crazy lady say what - what - thatta girl hahaha very good

    This is one of my all time favourite episodes for a number of reasons but the biggest reason being when JD and ELLIOT started there "love scene" i loved the song choice: The Coral - Dreaming Of You, This song was a perfect choice for the scene and i immeditaly stuck it on my sony walkman phone (i have over 300 songs) but i love this song. The greddy B*****D line from the janitor after jd walks past him and doesn't look up, the todd bit hows your p***s bit and kelso constantly in elliots face, does anyone know which episode and series it is when Dr Cox punches Kelso in the face please.
  • Couples ahoy!

    Dr. Cox and Jordan seem to be swimming along in their little dysfunctional relationship, as Jordan's pregnancy swims along. However, when Dr. Cox sort of unintentionally asks Jordan to move in with him in an effort to help her with her pregnancy things kind of snowball. She's calls him constantly, asks him for things endlessly, and pretty much just sorts to annoy him to end. But even though things are kind of a hassle Dr. Cox finds himself in a place where he wants to help Jordan and be there for her, even it is sometimes inconvienient.

    Turk and Carla run into a little trouble when she feels that they don't exactly have good reciprocation in the bedroom. Feeling that now their relationsip in in this dull place Carla does all she can to try and spice it and bring some romance to the situation but nothing seems to work. But as it turns out none of her efforts were actually needed, it's not that they are in a dull place. It's that they are in solid place where they don't need to try and impress eachother anymore they can simply fall asleep on the couch and it can be just as romantic.

    Jd runs into a little physical problem, even after he lands a rather attractive girl he has somewhat of a crush on. As hard as he tries ironicly he can't seem to make their dates work. However, when Elliot moves into his apartment temporarily due to her current financial and living situation he finds that his little problem suddenly isn't a problem anymore.
  • Another Triumph

    Once again from Scrubs, this eppisode has it all! It has:

    -Gift shop girl: The insanely hot woman that ZB could only get with in the show. the actress playing her did, in my opinion, a great job. Although, admittedly, all there was to do stand around and look georgeous. She did.

    -Moral: The whole 'My Monster' focus on the hospital was great because there are parralels with so many other professions; most people can identify with the feeling that their workplace is like a monster, feeding on their life.

    all in all this was a fantasic eppisode, and yet another reason to watch Scrubs. And buy all the DVDs NOW!
  • Great!

    JD, Cox, and Turk seem to have trouble with women by these days, first of all JD begins to date with an atractive doctor, but when they kiss she discovers that JD is not as excited as he is, and when she confronts him about it, and stays silence, she walks away. Meanwhile, Cox is not there for Jordan everytime she needs him, and she confronts him about it too, and well is just a really cool episode!
  • Gift Shop Girl

    This episode was hilarious with Dr Cox accidentally asking Jordan to move in with him, causing many a problem including having to bring back "something larger than a supersize".

    The Janitor being loaned a buck from the "charitable Dr Moneybags" and then using this against JD somehow.

    The hospital being a monster and JD losing his mojo was a brilliant plot, leading to a resolution towards the end when he lets Elliot move in with him and Turk.

    The Turk and Carla plot had some good lines but wasn't as entertaining as the other plots. Overall, the episode is a very good and worthwhile watch.
