    A bit of a forgettable episode, I felt like this episode was just the aftermath of Kelso leaving, and now Cox is chief. And he loves hearing it, I was surprised to see Cox as chief, and it felt a bit strange without Kelso, but it was still a good episode, with abundant amount of jokes that kept me laughing all the way through.



    The writers are again trying to shove Elliot/JD in our face, it became extremely obvious when they wouldn't stop talking about how much JD's baby looks like Elliot. By the way, where's Kim in all of this? JD & Elliot's friendship is great, lets just hope they don't get these two together just to break them up again.



    Carla wanting to have another baby was a bit too ridiculous considering Turk only has one testicle now, and there has definitely been too much pregnancies on this show as it is. Legal Custodians was the best part about this episode! I almost cried in laughter. A good episode, with some amazing jokes, although quite forgettable, good episode.moreless

    Elliot and J.D. seek out a former patient in order to give him compensation for prescribing Plomox, which later proves to have several negative side effects for diabetics who take it. After spending the day pulling pranks, J.D. realizes that Elliot sought out her old patient not for the financial compensation, but for her own knowledge that she did not kill him. J.D. and Elliot realize there has been a major change in their relationship. Meanwhile, now that Dr. Kelso is no longer working at the hospital, Dr. Cox loves his new position as interim Chief of Medicine. In fact he now insists that everyone in the hospital refer to him as Chief Dr. Cox. It also seems as if he is unsure whether he wants all of the problems that come with it, citing the masses of paperwork as a pain. Elsewhere, Carla approaches Turk about the possibility of having another childmoreless

    Once again, they do the Jelliot realizing a 'major change' in their relationship. I am a Jelliot SHIPPER or at least i WAS. But right now, i don't really give a crap of they get together or whatever. They should just either get them together or break them up. The ball mart fantasty was kinda cool, but the end of it was over the top. When Jd said "'I should stop with the long fantasties, they're never worth it' i totally agreed.I was really looking forward to Cox being chief. But he spend all day sitting in the doctor lounge with Jordan. What a dissapointmet!! It still had a few great jokes (Brain trust). Turla wanting another baby wasn't a great storyline! There are four kids in Scrubs now and none of them can actually do anything (expect for little Jack, who is hilarious).moreless

    Frankly i feel quite a few shows have been a little off balance ever since the strike and scrubs ahs been one of them.

    This episode however was a reminder of some of the things which made me staqrt watching the show in the first place.

    Ted's new devlopment was a great touch, thr brain trust in gerenal were great this show.

    To be honest i cant really put my finger on why this episode worked for me but i think the lack of angsty charecters (excusing elliots brief, "you love turk more" moment"), them not going overboard on JD's dream sequences and a general sense of the sotry moving forewards again all helped.

    Now if the next season takes this forewards then i won't mind them stretching this out that bit further.

    I'm going to treat this as the finale of the season for fairly obvious reasons for anyone who watched the next episode.moreless

    Since the writers strike was over Scrubs is just getting better and better and the episodes are coming back to being as great and as brilliant as they were before the notorious season 6.



    I've enjoyed the last few episodes very much and while this episode wasn't the best one in this season, it was still great and hilarious and I've found myself laughing my ass off a few times. Granted, it was more at jokes that I guessed were coming then jokes I didn't, thought there were a few brilliant and fresh parts in it too. For an example is the scene where everyone is talking in the lounge and Turk is telling JD that he's the one that wanted the surgery and not Carla and from that JD understands that Elliot's been obsessing about her patient for herself and not for him. I thought a joke was needed there otherwise that scene would look kind of stupid, and I was glad they laughed about themselves and that joke was just brilliant, especially the end of it, "And yet I'm doing it almost every week." That was freaking hilarious! Also, in the last two seasons there had been less fantasies then there used to be, sometime there was only one lousy fantasy in an episode just to say they did one, but in the last episodes they started making more fantasies again which makes me very happy. The tactical story is about annoying and odd, but the fantasy when JD, Dr. Cox, The Todd and Turk get stuck in a cabin had it funny moments, but mostly I enjoyed seeing the gang half naked. They always like to find reasons to get naked.



    Another notable joke was the Janitor/Ted sitcom which totally cracked me up. How the hell did they come up with that idea? It was brilliant. Also when they did that little annoying NBC commercial thing through the episode but with Legal Custodians I just laughed so hard.



    There was a lot of very funny scene in this episode and I enjoyed it very much, but it would take me a lot of time to write all of them so those are a few of the best ones.



    I don't want Elliot and JD to get together. I wanted them to be together most of the show, but when they broke up for the 100 time and nothing happened between them for a while it just became very annoying and not a story line I want to watch too much. The thing is that I guess they're going to get together because they made them like Ross and Rachel and you can see in the last few episodes how the writers are pushing for it with Turk and Carla saying all of the time that they need to be together and with them spending more and more time together. So I guess I'll have to try and get used to it if I want to enjoy the show as much as I can.



    All in all, a great episode that I really enjoyed and made me laugh a lot.moreless
