    A pretty amazing ending to an amazing season. I don't know if three pregnancies are going to improve the show, or bring it to it's end but it's definitely an interesting plot. Having three pregnancies on this show. Elizabeth Banks is doing a great job, and I'm glad she will be sticking around for a while. JD & Kim's first date, and Elliot continues to be the "moment killer" I sort of expected something going on with JD & Elliot but I never suspected Kim being pregnant after 2 1/2 half weeks of dating JD. Jordan also being pregnant, was kind of too much. But I'm interested to see where they'll take it. I hope Carla gives labor soon, I'm excited to see how they'll take Carla & Turk as parents. The only couple that felt out of place was Elliot & Keith. I still can't get used to these two for some reason. I still see it as some random guy Elliot has hooked up with. A great cliffhanger and a good conclusion to the season which brings us new beginnings for next season. Great finale.moreless
  • A constant laugh out loud episode! And a great season finale. A big favorite of mine.

    Being the most priceless and hilarious scene "Love hurts" playing while JD rides a horse bareback on the beach, with that grimace of pain: "Oh yeah, it was awesome!" Fortunately for JD, Kim is an urologist who took care of him after the incident, well put. This time the Floating Head Doctor scene is funnier than before involving head being in karaoke and body making dinner. "Head loooves karaoke" There are another funny stuff like Kelso showing his legs to the interns, and the Janitor giving an animal cage for the baby as a present, slowing down conversations to understand girls, "I pooped on my bed, so I put it on the TV" . A very funny Todd moment, Carla showing her stomach

    "Carla: Huuh! You like that?

    Todd: Wow! I felt it moved!

    Carla: Todd, you're touching your crotch.

    Todd: I know and I'm loving it. *bell rings as Todd winks* " I totally love the 'baby back ribs' scenes, specially the second when they were used to torture, HAHAHA. Elliot Reid Moment Killer. The Zoom Zoom Zoom parts are very funny "It's mine". Another good joke was old gays in JD's deck, then the Janitor is putting flyers about it. I also liked Dr. Cox part with the pencil was funny. There's also an awesome Turk's joke near the end. About everything is funny in this ep. "Elliot: Interesting conversation I had with the sweet old lady who owns the place. She says not many pregnant woman shop there, is mostly fat whores.

    Laverne: I got to get me one of those." Hilarious!

    I liked the good Elliot's gesture at the end to not ruin JD's moment with Kim. It has a good featured music in the ending.

    It turns out at the end this was "My Overkill" because both Jordan and Kim end up pregnant and Carla is already pregnant. Kim pregnant was a complete revolution for the show, I think. I really liked this episode, the ending is a cliffhanger, as it is the first part, continued in "My Mirror's Image".moreless
  • Great way to end a great series.

    At the beginning of series 5, i was curious of how good the series would be after the opening episode - "My Intern's Eyes". But i'm glad to say that this season has been worth while. Sure, some of the new stoner humour has been a pain. But it still has that Scrubs humour that we all know and love. This is probably the greatest Scrubs season finale ever. excluding season 6 which hasn't aired yet. The episode had every storyline to great standards. And also had the greatest floating head doctor fantasy. Elizabeth Banks still plays a strong and interesting role. And at the end of this episode, plays an even bigger one. In conclusion, this episode truly is one of the strongest episodes of the season, which makes you want to watch season 6 straight away. Amazing.moreless
  • End of series five and what a shocker!

    I loved this episode, i've probably watched it 3 times and it still makes me laugh, "zoom zoom zoom" was hilarious and the character of Kim is so much like JD. He always seems to fall in love with himself. It was a good ending of the series delivering the usual "end of series scrubs" blow that they have, a brilliant cliff hanger. And they mentioned the X-ray being the wrong way round after 5 years of complaints!

    It was a really good watch and definately worth the wait to get it in the UK. Although JD? With a kid? This will be interesting...moreless

  • QUOTES (29)

    • Dr. Cox: Say, Bobbo, you wanna weigh-in on pregnancy sex?
      Dr. Kelso: It's a freak show.

    • Dr. Kelso: Listen up, Interns! Notice the definition in the upper calf. (Lifts pant leg to reveal his oddly youthful legs) Look at it, damnit! See that. Back in 'Nam the choppers used to hover about eight feet over my head and I'd jump in. You should have seen the look on Charlie's face. (To Rex) Not the enemy, son. The pilot, Charlie-horse. Great guy. He didn't make it back. Where's the cake?

    • J.D.: Head loves karaoke.

    • Kim: Well I'm up for anything. I married my high school boyfriend, so the only first date I ever went on was in tenth grade. It began with me sitting in the back seat of his Miata because his friend Benny called shotgun and ended with us going to the arcade to, and I quote, "eat pizza and beat up nerds." And I married that guy.
      J.D.: Well trust me, Kim, I've beaten up many nerds in my day. But tonight's about you having the very best first date ever.
      Kim: Alright, sluggah!
      Elliot/J.D.: Byyyeee.
      Elliot: You don't have anything planned do you?
      J.D.: You had to soil the whole food court thing. It's Veal Picatta Night at Sbarros.

    • Carla: Huh. Do you like that?
      Todd: Wow. I felt it move.
      Carla: Todd, you're touching your crotch.
      Todd: I know. And I'm loving it.

    • J.D.'s narration: It's springtime at Sacred Heart and the whole hospital has that end of the year smell. (J.D. sniffs nurse's hair and cringes)

    • Turk: All right. Kim's right there. We spent all morning crafting a line so raw with confidence that if you pull it're back in the game.
      J.D.: I'm afraid, Mocha Bear.
      Turk: I know...buck up. (Turk pushes J.D. over to Kim)
      J.D.: Hey, Kim.
      Kim: Oh, hey. J.D., how are you feeling?
      J.D.: Well, uh... The swelling's gone down...for now.
      (Long, dramatic pause)
      Kim: (Laughing) You're an idiot!

    • Kim: See ya round six, wear something slutty. Zoom, zoom, zoom!
      J.D.:It's mine.

    • J.D.: Two and a half weeks is too long to wait for a third date.
      Kim: I'm pregnant.
      J.D.: What now?

    • Turk: Why does your TV smell like doo-doo?

    • Carla: Look, I feel like I can give you a list of things that are sucky about being pregnant. For starters, I am now horny as I have ever been and my husband is repulsed by me.
      Turk: Listen, if you really need it that badly, I will suck it up and shut my eyes so tight and then do you.
      Carla: Thank you for the sacrifice.
      Turk: It's because I love you.

    • Carla: It is ok, don't get up. I got it!
      Turk: Okay.
      Carla: It's only your child.

    • J.D.'s Narration: I hate cleaning up after those messy old queens. Oooh, appletini, when did they start drinking straight guy drinks?

    • J.D.'s Narration: Elliot Reid - Moment Killer

    • Elliot: Tell me every detail about the first date.
      Kim: We went horseback riding on the beach.
      Elliot: Ah yes, I have been on that date.
      Kim: Oh really?
      J.D.: What? I had a coupon.

    • J.D.: And there it was, the moment where pity was turning into genuine affection — classic Dorian.

    • Janitor: (On the phone) No mom! Playpen and baby cage is not like "toe-may-toe toe-mah-toe."

    • J.D.: I have to get ready man. I want my date with Kim to be perfect. What do you think about a romantic horseback ride on the beach?
      Turk: Ooh, like you and I did for your birthday.
      J.D.: Yeah but except this time with two horses.

    • J.D.: I was going to make you dinner and then go to karaoke but I don't know how to do both the same night...Unless of course...
      Elliot: J.D., not floating head doctor.
      J.D.: Too late, I'm already there.

    • J.D.: Hey Tubby!
      Carla: Oh J.D., I want you to feel the baby, come here quick!
      (J.D. leans in to feel, at which point Carla smacks J.D.'s ears)
      Don't call me tubby!
      J.D.'s Narration: Pregnant witch!

    • Jack: I made poopy in the potty.
      Dr. Cox: You know, son, as a doctor I spend a lot of my day dealing with other people's poop, and I'm not going to lie to you, Jackie, it gets old. That's not to say that I haven't enjoyed the last three years of waking up to a fresh brown trout in your Huggies besides you'll be doing the same thing for me some day real soon. Yet, aside from actually seeing you being born and the time Wayne Gretzky said 'what's up' to me in the line at the bank, you being out of diapers is the best damn thing that has ever happened to me. It truly is. Now why don't you go into your room and play for a little while because your mom and I are going to celebrate up here, grown-up style.

    • J.D.: Gloria, I need you to change the dressing on Mr. Curnses wound.
      Gloria: And I need you to suck it!
      J.D.: Wow Gloria! Do you kiss your great great great great great grand kids with that mouth? Zoom Zoom Zoom!

    • Dr. Cox: Please forgive me, but since I had a vasectomy last year, nay two vasectomies, I feel... I feel I just have to ask. Did you cheat on me?
      Jordan: No. And you know me; I always tell.
      Dr. Cox: Ah that's true.

    • Elliot: It's a preggie teddie! I got it over at that new maternity lingerie store at the mall. Had a very interesting conversation with the sweet old lady who owns the place. She said not that many pregnant women shop there. It's mostly just fat whores.
      Everyone: Ohh...
      Laverne: I gotta get me one of those.

    • Carla: Thank you! Is this for when we buy the baby a dog?
      Janitor: No! It's a baby cage! It's a good one too! See? When I was a kid, mine didn't have these windows! It's perfect! When you want to go out to dinner, it's already got a water bottle in it, so you just throw in some cedar chips in there so the baby can poop... you're made in the shade!
      Janitor: I'm kidding! It's for when they buy the baby a.. uh.. uh.. a puppy!
      Everyone: Ohhh..

    • Kim: So, Josh, you are suffering from a condition called phimosis. It's basically a hardening of your foreskin. As part of your treatment, I'm going to ask that you masturbate five times a week.
      J.D.'s narration: Help the poor kid out...
      J.D.: Wow five times a week, huh? For me that would be cutting back!
      J.D.'s narration: He said in front of his future girlfriend.
      J.D.: You know what? I should probably mosey.

    • Carla: Huh? Ya like that?
      Todd: I felt it move.
      Carla: Todd, you're touching your crotch.
      Todd: I know, and I'm loving it.

    • Jack: I pooped in my bed so I put it on the TV.

    • J.D.: You do the Zoom Zoom?
      Kim: Of course. I invented the Zoom Zoom.
      J.D.'s Narration: Liar!

  • NOTES (0)


    • After Dr. Cox and Jordan inform everyone of their pregnancy, Turk and Carla say "HA HA" in the style of Nelson from the Simpsons.

    • J.D. mentions Sbarro's in the food court at the mall. Sbarro's is an actual family owned restaurant chain that specializes in Italian food.

    • Zoom Zoom Zoom:
      J.D.'s (or Kim's) "Zoom Zoom Zoom" was popularized by an old Mazda Commercials, but originated from a Capoeira song chorus "Zum ,Zum, Zum! Capoeira mata um".
