    Even if this wasn't such a ground breaking episode that Scrubs is famous for, it was still a really amazing episode, and probably one of my favorites of Season 6. Season 6 has been going strong sure it's had it's pitfalls, but this episode and the previous episodes proved Scrubs can just get back up from a pitfall and bounce back fast. Some people call this episode a filler, and you know what it probably was but fillers are sometimes good for shows so they're not so over the top, and just watching any ol' episode of Scrubs sets us in our comfort zones, which is probably what this episode did for us. I read a review, and I think this person said it perfectly. This Scrubs episode mixed the old comedy with the new comedy, and we even have a returning character, from the past.



    Sam, who scammed Elliot in to getting drugs in the third season is back and claims he's clean as her is a drug counselor now. Elliot believes he's clean, but Cox does not. The past comes back to haunt Carla when the janitor blackmails Carla, since the janitor got her a fake Rowdy when she lost the real one. Kelso is treating a patient with no insurance, unknowingly. Someone from the hospital keeps stealing the scrubs. Which connects with the patient with no insurance since Kelso overreacts to the scrubs being stolen. JD & Turk get two Rowdy's, well one Rowdy, and one Steven. This episode had all the entities of the first couple seasons but with a new spin on things. Satisfying season 6, one of the best of season 6.moreless
  • it was ok i guess

    7.4
    this episode wasnt the best they have ever done and it was a bit boring.it wasnt even that funny and i dont no how they got this 1 on the air. it was very disapointing and i thought it could have been so much better, i don't no what the writers were thinking! it thought the sam story was ok but the rest wasn't scrubs high standards. i have to say though, the J.D fantisy when they all get their scrubs back and they all jump was quite good pplanned but they rest was poop! absolute poop! very, very boring!moreless
  • Scrubs is back!

    9.1
    Its starts off by showing that Dr. Kelso isnt without heart, and how the "gang" does take after Dr. Cox. It is an episode full of humor, with a nice sideplot about scrubstealing. The drug addict is back and of course he has Elliot wrapped around his little finger. A comical sideline with Dr. Cox and elliot gives the episode just the extra flavor it needs and makes it an episode to remember. Watch the workers of sacred heart finally winning one of Bob Kelso. A recommended episode to watch and finally gives the fans some hope that they will turn it back around.moreless
  • i want a pair of scrubs!!

    9.2
    hehe this one was nice. i liked it. Totally made me want to get my hands on those varied colored scrubs. lol I also like how Janitor found the original dog, Routy or Routie. I was not even expecting that at all. Wait a second.. that one guy. The one who always tricks the doctors. The drug addict. I can't stand him. He has got to go and stop showing up im random episodes. I don't care if in this one he was "better" and "clean" I just do not care too much for his character. Hey where is mr Keith?? He needs to be in more episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • In the season 1 episode "My Sacrificial Clam" there is a scene with the hospital's "Scrubs Machine" that involves putting dirty scrubs in to get clean scrubs out. If this was still in use, it would have been impossible for everyone to be stealing all of those scrubs. It must have been removed since then.

    • When Dr. Cox walks into the door while being distracted by Elliot, he clearly takes his hands out of his lab coat pockets and pushes against the door with them to give the impression of him hitting the door.

    • The ad for the baby tracker reads "for white babies" and "protects your precious one from freaks and weirdos!" Also, the website for the product is "www.babytracker.poo".

    • Dr. Cox's comment about the voiceovers in "Grey's Anatomy" is the second reference made to the show, the first being in "My Buddy's Booty"by Scrubs which airs at the same time as "Grey's Anatomy".

    • When Elliot falls over the patient in a wheelchair because she was looking at Dr. Cox for too long, she drops her clipboard behind her. When the camera cuts to Elliot on the floor, her clipboard is in her right hand.

    • Carla first lost Rowdy in season four episode "My First Kill".

    • Featured Music:
      "Courage" by Glen Phillips (Final scene)
      "Boston" by Augustana
      "Charles In Charge" by Stay Tuned

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Sam: Come on man, you don't know how hard it's been staying straight.
      Todd: Been there brother!

    • (Carla standing in front of Turk's car with Laverne)
      Carla: Here's the deal. When nobody's looking, we'll grab Steven and make him go bye-bye so there will only be one dog left. So when "Lurch" suddenly shows up with the real Rowdy, Turk will have to assume he is the one who stole him from the car. Got it?
      Laverne: Whatever, let's do this. (Takes a deep breath) LAVERNE ROBERRRTTS! (Smashes the passenger window.)
      Carla: I have the keys.
      Laverne: My Bad.

    • Elliot: (After Dr. Kelso changed the scrubs colors to brown) I actually don't mind the new scrubs. It really makes my outfit pop.

    • (J.D. comes out of a fantasy where he and Turk were cavemen)
      J.D.: I may have killed you, but I think I was upset about it.

    • Janitor: No, it's not bald black doctor. It's haired, half white half Inuit janitor.

    • (The power goes out and everyone runs around freaking out)
      Dr. Kelso: Calm down, people, we have a back-up generator.
      (The power comes back on)
      Dr. Kelso: Thank God. I was just bluffing.

    • Dr. Cox: (To Elliot) Good luck with that, Barb-idiot!

    • Dr. Kelso: You brought this on yourselves, you thieving bastards.

    • Carla: White people do the craziest things.
      Laverne: Like bumper stickers. I don't give a damn what you brake for!
      Janitor: I know, white people! (Carla and Laverne give him an odd look) No, my...my stepmom is one quarter Inuit, so I'm...part Eskimo. Anyway, small favour. I need your baby. I'm getting into the baby broker business. Nothing illicit, I'm just hooking up folks that can't have babies with folks that don't want babies.
      Carla: You. Leave.

    • Elliot: (To Dr. Cox) Oh, you think you're funny?
      Dr. Cox: I do, I always have, ever since I was little. It's one of the reasons that I'm a winner.

    • Dr. Kelso: Why so awkward? You never saw a colleague get a happy ending before?
      Turk: No not...not that happy.
      J.D.: But thank you for including us.

    • Random Guy: Hey Grandpa, a little help.
      Dr. Kelso: Here ya go, sport. But call me grandpa again and you and I are going to play a little game called "hide the wingtip". There may be a generational gap here, I'll explain. The wingtip is my shoe, the hiding place is your ass.

    • Elliot: Oh and FYI, I happen to like the voice-overs on Grey's Anatomy. Except for when they're really vague and generic.
      J.D's narration: And so in the end I knew what Elliot said about the way things were had forever changed the way we all thought about them.

    • Elliot: Why can't you just give Sam a break?
      Dr. Cox: Look, the only thing Sam did was to go from being a lying drug addict to being a lying drug addict who works here.
      Elliot: People change, I knew this one migrant worker from our orchard, Ramon. He used to say I hate apple sauce, it destroys the integrity of la manzana, manzana is Spanish for apple, anyway...last time I was home I asked how Ramon was doing, vice president of Motts Applesauce. It's true, Ramon Delgado, look him up on the internet.
      Dr. Cox: I will.
      Elliot: Don't, I made it up. The point is, people can change and you know it.
      Dr. Cox: Nothing ever changes. The artist formerly known as Prince is still just Prince, my ex-wife is still pretty much my wife, Grey's Anatomy always wraps up every episode with some cheesy voice-over that ties together all of the storylines, which incidentally is my least favorite device on television, Newbie continually will try to violate my no-touching policy... (Looks around) ...and Republicans will forever try to raise...
      J.D.: Sneak hug! (Hugs Dr. Cox)
      Dr. Cox: Of course I would go kill him right now, but he actually just helped to prove my point.
      Nurse Roberts: This is gonna help too. There are ten orders of Percocet missing from the pharmacy.
      Dr. Cox: I think I have a pretty good idea who I'm gonna give my complimentary urine test to... (Points and whistles at Sam)

    • Todd: Dude, I've had a pro bono like all morning. Something might be wrong five!
      (Todd and Turk slap hands and snap)

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Pet Sematary:
      Ted claims that he saw a "lifeless ghost dog" which scared him that morning while in his car and Dr. Kelso scoffs at him for thinking he would feel guilty about building a "paving over that Indian burial ground". This is similar to Stephen King's Pet Sematary in which the main character buries the family's dead cat in a cursed Indian burial ground and it comes back to life.

    • Fame:
      When the hospital crew gets their normal scrubs back, J.D. fantasizes about all of them coming to the hospital dancing and jumping, just like in the movie Fame.

    • Leeroy Jenkins:
      Laverne saying "let's do this" and shouting out her name before smashing the car window is an allusion to the virtual World of Warcraft character Leeroy Jenkins, who shouted out his name before ruining the game for everyone else in his party.
