    This episode has got to be my favorite of season 2. It is cleverly written, very revealing, and features one of the best musical moments in "Scrubs" history.

    I would first like to commend this episode for once again refusing to stick to the norm where relationships are involved. While I was pumping my fists in the air when J.D. and Elliot hooked up in "My Monster," we all know that they aren't meant to work out long term.

    This episode reveals exactly why "friends with benefits" or "sex buddies" or whatever you want to call it just won't work. While at first it seems like the perfect solution, sex invariably complicates rather than simplifies. Sex and emotions are a packaged deal, and no matter how much we try and fight this fact, there is no way around it.

    The song, "Tell Her This" by Del Amitri, works perfectly at the end. Like all the best musical moments, the scene was written to fit the song.

    Check this episode out; you won't regret it.
