Top Ten Scrubs Moments #5


First airing in 2001, Scrubs continued for nine seasons with 2010 being its official end. While it’s always sad to see a great comedy series call it a day it’s important to appreciate the memories that remain. At the time of writing I have watched and enjoyed seven seasons worth of Scrubs and from those experiences I have compiled what are, for me, the ten best moments. My choices contain many of Scrubs’ magical ingredients:- an obligatory rant from Dr Cox, a taste of the brilliant range of backing music and, of course, those occasions when the laughs are put to one side and the reality of hospital life hits you hard.

Dominican Tango

This is the first of two entries from the Scrubs musical episode in Season 6 and is a particular favourite with Mrs B. Turk and Carla, married by this point, take centre stage when Sacred Heart admits a patient who claims that everyone around her keeps singing!

Fashioning a song around tango rhythm and dance, this scene begins with Carla (Judy Reyes) informing Turk (Donald Faison) she wants to come back to work rather than be on maternity leave for a year. Turk, once again, manages to annoy his wife by referring to her as Puerto Rican. Carla begins the song with a reminder that she is in fact Dominican and laments Turk’s lack of knowledge about her. After arguing that men’s minds are not built for remembering such things, Turk supports Carla’s decision to return to work before they end both the song and dance in style.

Top Ten so far:-

5) Dominican Tango

6) Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

7) Kelso temorarily loses his hearing

8) Dr Cox says “No!”

9) Air Band

10) Jordan reveals all
