  • Awesome!

    Finally. A Top notch Scrubs episode.

    First and foremost – the bromance continues, much to our delight:

    (in the blue ocean of the Bahamas)

    JD: "What's up Blackuaman? Oh cute! Look – an eel!"

    T: "No. I'm naked."

    JD: "Oooh right. That is you."

    (JD complains about how crazy specific Elliot's demands for him to say "I love you" to her really are) T: "Now look into my eyes and say it"

    (Cox pops up)

    JD: "I love you."

    Cox: "No – that's about right. And you're naked. Either two of you idiots see my computer?"

    T: "Maybe the mermaid took it"

    JD: "He's not too great in the heat."

    JD (to Elliot, showing her their video of a desert island they found in the middle of the sea): "That's us doing muscle poses ... look how firm Turk looks..."

    Next up: Teddy was god-awful in everything apart from his music. Why don't they have him focus on that more often?!

    And finally – Cox and Jordan get honest, and admit that they love each other.

    Also, this was hilarious:

    JD: "Look Elliot. I don't know if it's possible for me to put how I feel about you into words, but I guess I'll give it a shot. I never really believed I'd find somebody that I love as much as you. I love you more than anything in the whole world. Elliot ... I love you more than Turk!"

    Elliot: "Oh. My. God."

    JD: "I know. That's even hard for me to say, but it's true."

    (JD pulls out the Tiki necklace)

    JD: "I had to wrestle him to the ground to get this, but it's more important for you to have this".

    And that is when I realised how much she did deserve to have it. Him and Turk looked like a couple with that thing around their necks, and Elliot rightfully felt out of place. I really hope that this sticks.

    P.S. Bill Lawrence's cameo on his own show was *terrible*. Not only were his jokes rotten, his delivery really did leave us not only wanting, but also needing and weeping. His only (considerable) redemption were his turquoise blue eyes. Yes, I may have drowned in them a bit, but only like a thirsty badger in a shallow fountain. The rest of his appearance was a cruel tsunami in comparison.

    P.P.S: The Janitor (willweeverlearnhisrealname?) gets married. Weird and sweet. Typical.moreless
  • The best character gets married.

    First off, I should say that I approve of Mrs. Jan Itor even though I've been a huge Jantior + Blonde Doctor fan since season three. The wedding is very sweet and humanizing, and Bill Lawrence's appearance was both hilarious and appropriate since he is a huge part of the show under the surface. Plus it bothers me that it's hard to understand Bill in his role as the janitor who takes down JD's goodbye banner in the series finale (the first one), but his performance in this episode is so stellar that it makes it worth it. Also, Ted's "Hey Ya" is absolutely fabulous and so beautiful for an island wedding. And it was great to see the other couple's happy as well, even though the Janitor's happiness has always been what's most important to me. In conclusion, a stellar way to have the Jantior get married!moreless

    Although this episode still didn't fell like I was watching Scrubs. More like a romantic comedy, where the guy always gets the girl in the end, the emotion really made up for. We got to see the Janitor finally in a happy place. Cox & Jordan not hating each other and finally accepting that they love each other and they don't want to be "that" couple anymore. When Cox pulled Jordan in to the pool, it was so heartwarming, to see how they relationship progressed since 1x06.

    Elliot was incredibly annoying in this episode, with her constant eye rolls and her strange hatred against red heads, but she got redemption in the end. JD loves Elliot more than Turk, talk about a romantic gesture. How long has Carla been pregnant? She definitely does not look like she's carrying any kind of baby. All plots are resolved and everyone ends up together just like in a romantic comedy, but it was good with tying up loose ends. This could have been the finale as a matter of fact when you think about it, good episode.moreless
  • part 2

    Part 2 kicks off were we left it... the couples still trying to work through there issues while the janitor and lady prepare for there wedding which they have to actually have now because j.d talked everyone into actually going! the janitor soon punishes him for that! Kelso is yet to move from the bar and his "bahama mamas". Turk trying to talk mermaid to a lady he thought was one was hilarious. Bill lawrence also guest stars in this as the justice of peace who todd finds and it turns out they have an intersting history including rectal exams in bars!!! Bill was hilarious when marrying the janitor and lady whos actual name is ladannia..his speech on how marriage doesnt work with advice like dont share money or a car because you cant get the other persons stink out of it and to never strike each the face! only the body was hilarious! meanwhile kelsos still at the bar! Loved how the guests had to stand while the janitor and lady sat! We almost find out the janitors name which seems to start with an "S" and sounds foreign. There was a moment in the coffee shop in season 7 were we over heard a kid saying to him that didnt look asian so im guessing that it is.

    By the end of the episode the couples have worked out there problems. J.d even tells elliot he loves her more then turk! It was another great episode i really enjoyed it especially when j.d and turk were in the water and he refers to him as blackwa man! classic scrubs style jokes and the whole cast make it really enjoyable lets hope they can keep it up.moreless
  • The Janitor's wedding part deux!

    This is why we all fell in love with Scrubs to begin with. We see the original cast in all of their quirkiness with no annoying interns messing everything up.

    You have to love Turk and JD's relationship but I will say that this episode pushes the boundaries and my comfort zone just a little, in a funny way of course. We got to see a different side of the Janitor while he was saying his vows. JD finally admitted how much he loves Elliot; and in a very touching way, "na na na". Even Perry showed us his sensitive and loving side which was nice for a change, but you have to love his sarcasm. As a whole the episode had some touching moments, some funny moments, and some shocking moments. What else can you really ask for.

    I've got to hand it to the writers because after 8 seasons they can still catch me by surprise.moreless
