  • Elizabeth Banks.

    9.0
    Nice way to change it up at Sacred Heart. Definitely caught me surprise while I was watching the theme song. I have always been a big fan of Elizabeth Banks, so I'm really glad that she guest starred or started a recurring role on this wonderful show. Carla starts feeling hormonal which ensues hilarity. JD comes to like a surgeon, Kim Briggs who is portrayed by Elizabeth Banks. All married women being invisible to JD was absolutely hilarious, and it was nice to see Gift Shop Girl again. Also amazing mention of Dr. Acula. So some good jokes on tonight's episode, I loved how this episode tied in in the end. With Elliot doubting her relationship with Kieth. Then Carla being mad and hormonal at her, and Keith standing up for Elliot. From Kelso having to make the announcement because he wrecked the janitor's car, and the janitor can prove it. Then JD getting the girl at the end, a great final scene between Zach Braff and Elizabeth Banks. Great installment this week, looking forward to the season five finale.moreless

  • Another good week.

    8.9
    Definatley not the best episode of the series, but sure's hell not the worst. My only complaint, which lead to an 8.9 rating and not a 9 or above, was the beginning sequence. JD and the whole, not seeing women with wedding rings was just sooooo lame. I cringed when i saw it. It was seriously ridiculous. Scrubs is one of the well written, classies shows in decades, but this could be used as a good con. And i hated the montage and how she was "at Ben's funeral" from My Screw Up. They took an emotional scene and tried to turn it into a humerous scene. Yes, i know it's a comedy first, but still. Anywho, the rest of the episode is fine, and infact i didn't find Kim (Elizabeth Banks; Slither, 40 Year Old Virgin) as annoying as people stated on the scrubs web site. Infact she turned out to be a pretty strong character and important to the episode. I liked the whole Janitor and Kelso storyline. I just feel they are underusing Kelso nowadays, ever since the second half of season 3 he's only been getting a main storyline every couple of episodes. Maybe he's requesting it because of his age,fair enough if that's the case, but if he isn't then please let him be used more. I just love it how he does his 'hit and out' jokes. Where he's not actually invovled in the scene but he has one line and nails it. Any way, i'm going a bit of topic now, A good episode to watch.moreless
  • Wow what an episode. Definitely one of the best episodes i've seen

    JD's inability to see married women cracks me up nevertheless leads to plot holes is previous and future episodes. Dr Briggs is a character that i want to see more of funny and popular! Good on JD for winning her heart. Great Episode Can't wait for how it continues.
  • Married women are invisible to JD!

    9.4
    This episode is hilarious from start to finish, with great moments like Carla's pregnancy mood swings (which Jordan not only ignores but pushes Carla away from the conversation) and the Dr Acula scenes from the video camera stolen from Rotinaj, no, not the doctor, the Janitor's username.



    The irony in the fact that if Carla and Elliot wern't fighting about breaking up with Keith, the breakup would not occur is very well plotted and all the plots are quite entertaining, especially the main one of JD befriending Kim, an important moment in the series which will pay off in the final episode of the season.moreless

  • TRIVIA (7)

  • QUOTES (17)

    • (About getting money for Dr. Kelso)
      Janitor: I'll do it. I shouldn't be mopping in here anyway...this is a rug.

    • Dr. Kelso: You know the difference between you and me, Dorian?
      J.D.: Your melon-sized prostate, sir?

    • Dr. Kelso: Listen up, name-tags!! I need to wire some cash to my son so we can make bail. Apparently, that musical he was producing was just a front for a crystal meth lab. And here´s the kicker: he fled to Toronto so now the freakin' Mounties are involved!!

    • J.D.: I saw you did that surgery on Mr. Peters. Did you decide it was the right thing to do?
      Kim: No...actually it was a stupid career risk.
      J.D.: Then why did you do it?
      Kim: Because for some reason I find myself really caring about what you think of me.

    • J.D.: I finally figured out what bothered me so much about you.
      Kim: Well, lay it on me, studly.
      J.D.: It's the way you're so concerned about protecting yourself. I mean, no one in this entire hospital has a bad thing to say about you, and I'm guessing that's because you're so careful not to rub anyone the wrong way. You still wear your wedding ring, that prevents any guy from getting anywhere near ya. You wouldn't operate on Mr. Peters, and we both know how you're protecting yourself there. I dunno, I guess in the grand scheme of things it's not that big a deal. I just, I was a little disappointed to find out who you turned out to be.
      J.D.'s thoughts: I guess people can always surprise you.

    • Dr. Kelso: I don't want to do this.
      Janitor: I will just give the video tape to the police.
      Dr. Kelso: Ladies and gentle, this is your chief of medical staff Bob Kelso, I feel compelled to tell you that I do in fact fear the Janitor. Honestly, is there anyone else of such brilliant mind? So please join me basking in the glow of the Janitors awesome... This isn't a word.
      Janitor: Read it!
      Dr. Kelso: ...'Fearatude'. Good night.
      Janitor: ...and good luck! I love that movie.

    • Elliot: Did you enjoyed that pancakes that I left on your computer?
      Carla: No, but I enjoyed that 3000 ants crawling on my keyboard.
      Todd: There are two of them doing it on the 'F' button. I could be wrong but it looks like two girls.

    • J.D.: Here comes Kim. She has had all night to think about what she did so she will probably be in a shame spiral. Let's enjoy it!
      Kim: Hey fellas! How are you living?
      Turk: Large. (To J.D.) WHAT!? What? Was I not supposed to answer?

    • Dr. Cox: When was the last time you ever met a cutter who didn't want to cut? Laverne! You have been here 40 years now, have you ever heard such a thing?
      Laverne: I'm going to kill somebody!

    • Carla: Remember when I first started dating Turk and I wanted to bail on him because he cried at the end of sex?
      Turk: Baby!
      J.D.: Relax Brown Bear. There's no shame in 'crymaxing'.

    • J.D.: You stole my video camera with all the scenes from 'Dr. Acula' the vampire movie I'm making.
      Janitor: Why do you think I stole it?
      J.D.: I don't know, maybe because I was surfing the hospitals website and I saw that someone posted the 'Dr. Acula delivers a baby and then eats it' scene. Someone with the screen name 'Rotinaj'. 'Rotinaj' is Janitor spelled backwards Rotinaj.
      Janitor: Good morning Dr. Rotinaj!
      Dr. Rotinaj: Good morning Mr. Clean Up Man.

    • Kim: This is the length of the average penis.
      J.D.'s thoughts: What?!
      Patient: That seems about right.
      Kim: Good for you! I was just messing with J.D.
      J.D.: You know what, I'm not talking to any of you guys. You're lying...! (J.D. checks patient's penis) Oh my God!

    • Carla: Baby look at this, I'm starting to look like a big fat pregnant lady.
      Turk: No you're not, baby. You look like you just let yourself go a little.
      (Carla begins to cry uncontrollably)
      Turk: This past few days your moods have changed like that!
      Carla: That is not true!
      (Carla slaps the hell out of him)
      Turk: That's cool...
      Carla: I'm sorry. Let me kiss that owee. Kiss the owee... Baby...oh baby... I wanna do it right now.
      Turk: You don't wanna do it right now? This'll pass.
      Carla: This is happening.
      Turk: Damn right this is happening.
      (Turk begins to remove his clothes and Carla sits down)
      Carla: My mom. I can't believe she'll never meet her grandchild.
      Turk: Do you wanna start out with kissing or should we go right into the good stuff?
      Carla: What is wrong with you?
      (Carla pushes him over a table)
      Turk: When will you learn?

    • Carla: Baby look at this, I'm starting to look like a big fat pregnant lady.
      Turk: No you're not baby. You look like you just let yourself go a little.

    • Elliot: I am wearing red. Should I not be wearing red around her?
      Turk: She's pregnant, she's not a bull.

    • J.D.: Gift Shop Girl?
      Lisa: Hey J.D.
      J.D.: I thought you died.
      Lisa: No, I just got married.
      J.D.: But I sent your family flowers.
      Lisa: I know. You bought them from me. It was kind of weird.

    • J.D.: And then the ultimate Cox-block.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The intro sequence was changed slightly to make fun of the fact that the x-ray is backwards, as so many fans have pointed out.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The theory that J.D. cannot see women who wear wedding rings, thereby rendering them invisible, is a reference to Lord of the Rings. The One Ring in the book/movie gives the wearer invisibility.

    • Good Night, and Good Luck.:
      The Janitor loves the 2005 movie Good Night, and Good Luck..
