  • Very funny as always but same old love story...

    Is it just me or is this love story between JD an Eliot getting out of hand?

    In this epsiode the JD decides to get with his pregnant ex-girlfriend and make a go at it. While Eliot is making wedding plans (without Keith... very funny moments from this).

    But do they both want it? Do they? Well I don't know but I'm getting pretty board of this constantly been brought up. Either they get together or they don't to be honest I don't care either way.

    Anyway overall this episode is very funny as always but drawn out by the stupid re-occuring love story... and with a terrible cliffhanger. Change the story guys please!

  • Another "will they or won't they"? I cannot believe my favorite show ended another season like that.

    So, before I get a lot of hate for the harsh rating, hear me out. The "will they or won't they" is one of the only things overdone on "Scrubs," (secretly, I am beginning to believe Dr. Cox's syllable length is losing its charm). It seems as if the episode's writers did not delve into J.D. and Elliot's history, round about Turk and Carla's rehearsal dinner? (For those of you playing the "at home" version of this game, J.D. told Elliot he did not love her). So, despite the fact that J.D. broke Elliot's heart and ruined their friendship for damn near a season, they end season six with a near kiss?

    I feel like this could have ended a little more tastefully. Yes, J.D. is freaking out about his ordeal with Kim, and Elliot is worried about marrying Keith too soon, but that does not give enough elbow room for this ending.

    I can only hope that season seven can bring me back from this low rating.

    (Seriously, I love the show to pieces, and that is why I had to tear into this one so much)moreless
  • This is getting a bit out of character for JD's "sensi" personality. And JD and Elloit again?

    So as much as I love this show, I can't help but to just be mad about how they are changing JD's character. I understand that he would be pissed off about Kim lying to him and such, but to me it just seems WAY out of JD's character to be treating her like he is. I was happy to see that he was at least trying things out with her, but I just feel like the way he's going about it doesn't fit his "sensitive" character. On a side note, with Elliot getting married I can see why she may be getting cold feet, but are they seriously doing this whole JD and Elliot thing again? I feel like it may be getting slightly overdone.moreless

    JD & Elliot almost kissing? Is this what we really want? We've gone down this road plenty of times, and it has always resulted in disaster? Elliot & Kieth have been dating for 2 years and now they're getting married. Would Elliot be that afraid of commitment that she would sleep with JD after 2 years of being with Kieth Would JD do the same thing with Kim after asking her to come to work at Sacred Heart, and to move in with him?

    We've already got two huge commitments on this show, and I'm sure a lot of fans have come to like them, why bring back JD & Elliot together now of all times? For shock value, maybe? All I know is that, all were going to get here is another mess, even if they kiss or not, or whatever they do, which could really mess up things with their relationships with Kim & Kieth.

    The christening of Jennifer Dylan was nice, JD being removed from being a godfather was hysterical, at least the baby is still named JD. A pretty great finale, usually this show isn't HUGE on cliffhangers in finales, but in this case, they did a pretty good job.moreless
  • nothing new ...

    let me preface this review by saying: i love 'scrubs.' i own every season on dvd and i think the series gets better and better every single season. i never go an episode without laughing out loud and i think the character portrayals are spot on!

    that being said, this "cliffhanger" was so unoriginal, it's not even funny. i'm surprised at some of the reviews. not the, "exactly why i watch this show" reviews, because i can understand those. this type of thing is what excites them. but others, welp ...

    in this season finale, dr. cox and jordan are about to baptize little "jennifer dylan;" members of the brain trust attempt to teach keith how to be the best husband; kim moves in with JD, once he finds out she never had a miscarriage and is still carrying their baby (no real surprise); and JD and Elliot (as always) fear their commitments and end up in the on call room together, wondering what to do. the episode ends with them leaning in towards a kiss.

    AND??? THIS is cliff-hanging??? this is nothing new! the JD and Elliot "when are they going to get together?" question is always hanging there. it reminds me of "who's the boss?" (another of my favorite shows) but done very badly. i say that because JD and Elliot have constantly hooked up. there is no excitement, really, in waiting for a climax because they've already had one. and two. and three. at this point, you're just waiting ... again. and not for them to get together ... but for the eventual break-up as soon as they do. i gave this episode an 8.5 because most times it is coupled with "my rabbit," which is a good episode. the two together are very good and i do like all the other story lines. "are JD and Elliot going to go there again?" just doesn't happen to be my favorite. perhaps i am not the norm in feeling that way. in reality, after six years, you would think that two adults could figure out whether or not they wanted to be together ... and if they did, they would. of course, "scrubs" isn't reality ... i'm aware of that. i suppose i just feel that the JD/Elliot "maybe" is wearing a bit thin and the only thing i felt at the end of this episode was irritated. i would have given it a lower score but, thankfully, the entire episode didn't revolve entirely around JD and Elliot and was really quite good.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • In the scene where the Janitor's Brain Trust tries to teach Keith how to be a good husband, Lloyd says he doesn't know who Elliot is. In the episode Their Story, Lloyd had a package addressed to Elliot's house yet he saw her at the hospital and tried to deliver the package there. He knew who Elliot was.

    • Of all the ending of episodes with Elliot and J.D. kissing, this is the first that ends when they're about to kiss.

    • It appears that the Janitor has a new Brain Trust, comprising Todd, Ted and Lloyd, who is being tried out to replace Doug. This Trust replaces the old one of Crazy Eyes Margo, Troy and Randall, who were seen in previous episodes.

    • After finding J.D. in his thinking spot, when Dr. Cox closes the door, the notice saying "Authorized Personnel Only" from J.D.'s point of view is visible. This means that the noticeboard was placed inside the door, not outside, which seems to be illogical.

    • This is the first time Elliot wears scrubs since "My Changing Ways". We can see her wearing scrubs in "My Jiggly Ball", but that happens in a fantasy scene.

    • Featured Music:
      "Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet" composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Elliot apologizes to Keith)
      "Alive With the Glory of Love" by Say Anything (Final scene)

    • This episode marks the first time we see Jordan and Dr. Cox's daughter Jennifer Dylan.

    • J.D. is seen writing in his unicorn diary, which he received from a patient in "My Unicorn".

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Janitor: Would you know what to do if she suddenly woke up and couldn't use vowels?
      Keith: (Laughs) That's ridiculous.
      Janitor: Is that what you're gonna say when she looks at you with those big blue eyes, and cries out, "lmtkpkglz"?

    • Todd: Okay, I've got something we can't give her permanently, but I can guarantee she'll enjoy it while she has her hands on it-
      Janitor: No! Preemptive strike on the sex joke. Take a timeout.

    • Elliot: (to Keith) Focus! There's no "you" in wedding!

    • J.D.'s narration: So what rhymes with baptism? Raptism? Schmaptism? Naptism? I'm so tired I could use a naptism...and there's my opening joke! I should write "pause for laughter" so I don't forget!

    • Keith: Babe, I like this tuxedo more than the one you picked out.
      Elliot: Yeah, it looks really great, Keith. You know, if you plan on sawing me in half on the altar and yelling "abracadabra"!
      Keith: But it's comfortable.
      Elliot: You think that I'm gonna be comfortable in my five inch heels and my rib-crushing corset and my nipple tape?
      (Keith looks baffled)
      Elliot: There will be no "poppers" in my wedding photos, Keith.

    • (Turk and Carla are sitting on the couch)
      J.D.'s narration: It's amazing how some couples are so close that they can finish each other's sentences.
      Turk: (To Kim) So there we were, hottest day of the year.
      (J.D. comes in next to Turk)
      J.D.: At the beach and we're both wearing jeans. Isn't that crazy? Guess who we run into.
      Turk: Also in jeans.
      Carla: It was Dr. Jay, Kim, and unless you want to hear about this for the next hour please change the subject.

    • Janitor: Lloyd, anything?
      Lloyd: Yeah, I'm still not sure who Elliot is.

    • Urologist: Hey I love being the new urologist here but I'm having some trouble with my peers. Get it? Pee-ers?
      Dr. Kelso: God, I hate you.

    • Kim: Okay, I'll give it up.
      J.D.: (To Turk) Incidentally that's not the first time she said that today, if you know what I'm talking about.
      Turk: I know what you're talking about.
      J.D.: I hit it, I hit it good. Rowdy style. We have to look out for that belly. It's dangerous.
      Turk: Listen, I have a video you might be a little interested in watching.
      Carla: (To Kim) Welcome to my world.

    • J.D.'s narration: Oh my God. Is that side boob?
      Kim: Careful with the side boob, big guy. My hormones are going crazy, I might just pounce your skinny ass.
      J.D.: Kim, I really don't think we should.
      Kim: I won't. I got a giant boogie in my nose.
      J.D.'s narration: Look at her saying "I won't" with a giant boogie in her nose. I must have her.
      J.D.: You know, on second thought...
      Kim: Yes?
      J.D.'s narration: Still, I wonder what it'll be like having sex with a pregnant woman.
      (After they had sex they come out of the room)
      J.D.: That was so cool. And weird.
      Kim: (With her hand on her stomach) Yeah, somebody else liked it too. He's going crazy in there.
      J.D.: And now it's disgusting.

    • Turk: Look, Gin, if you need any legal help concerning your accident, you can talk to Jim, who is a very successful esteemed bulldog of a lawyer. Or you can talk to Ted, who, well...
      Ted: My mom calls me Thunder.
      Gin: I'll go with the less shiny one.
      Jim: Tough break, Thunder.
      Ted: You're not my mom, Jim! You're not my mom!

    • Todd: Ok, I've got something we can't give her permanently, but I can guarantee she'll enjoy it while she has her hands on it.
      Janitor: No, pre-emptive strike on the sex joke, take a time out.
      (Todd rests his head on the table)

    • Dr. Kelso: Dorian...tell your baby momma she can have her job back. By the way, I think it's hilarious that you trust her again.
      J.D.: I know sir, I got your e-mail. (Walks over to Dr. Cox and Jordan) Well, I'm off to my thinking spot to put the finishing touches on my God-dad speech. A word of advice: Bring...your...hankies.

    • Dr. Cox: Jordan, here's some things I'd rather see happen than dingus over there becoming the godfather: a nuclear war, a sequel to Hope Floats, Hugh Jackman winning an Oscar...
      Dr. Kelso: Yep yep, a funny long list, we get it. You need a new thing, big guy.

    • Janitor: And Ted, you'll be playing Blonde Doctor, get in character.
      Ted: Ok, falling in love with you, long blond hair... (blows imaginary hair out of face) ...talking very fast! Talking very fast! Frick! Frick! Ok, I'm ready...

    • Dr. Cox: Jordan, I hate this!
      Dr. Kelso: Why, I would think an arrogant ass like you would love having his very own clone.
      Dr. Cox: Up yours, Bobbo.
      Jack: Yeah, up yours, Bobbo!
      Dr. Cox: Outstanding, come.

    • (Lying in bed together)
      J.D.: I like you in scrubs. Reminds me of when we used to date.
      Elliot: (Scoffs) It was a disaster.
      J.D.: All of it?
      Elliot: No.
      J.D.: You ever think we may be perfect for each other, we just have the same fatal flaw?
      Elliot: You mean that whenever we get too close to a commitment we totally freak out and try to escape?
      J.D.: That's what we've been doing here all night, right?
      Elliot: Besides, I've thought about it and there's no escaping this one. The gifts are all here, people have bought plane tickets, I'm getting married. I've reached the point of no return.
      J.D.: You and me both.
      Elliot: I mean, to get out of this, I'd have to do something huge.
      J.D.: I'd have to go nuclear.

    • Dr. Cox: (About J.D.) I think this time I'm actually gonna kill him. Yup... This's the one.

    • Janitor: Here you go, Lloyd, here's your pager. Your idea?
      Lloyd: There's this amazing house on my delivery route, with all kinds of valuable stuff, and no alarm. We could rob it.
      Janitor: I'm gonna need that [pager] back...gonna hold on to this for a little while.

  • NOTES (3)


    • J.D.: Raj, Rerun.

      There was a show in the 70's called "What's Happening!!" featuring two characters in the show called "Raj" and "Rerun".

    • Dr. Cox: Jordan, here's some things I'd rather see happen than dingus over there becoming the godfather: A nuclear war, a sequel to Hope Floats, Hugh Jackman winning an Oscar...

      Hope Floats is a 1998 American romantic drama directed by Forest Whitaker and starring Sandra Bullock, Harry Connick, Jr. and Gena Rowlands. Though the movie was awarded few awards, is generally perceived as too long and boring.
      Hugh Jackman is an Australian actor, who has been part of Dr. Cox's rants before.

    • The Janitor changed the hospital records of his address to be "1 North Cemetary Drive", which is the address of the Addams Family. He was also thinking about changing it to "1313 Mockingbird Lane", which is the address of the Munsters.
