Top Ten Scrubs Moments #2


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.

Dance Montage

Rather than a self-contained scene this is more a Scrubs Greatest Hits collection, albeit in the form of dancing. The majority of the cast all have a go at showing off their moves, some faring better than others but generally there’s a very good range of talent on show here.

The scene begins with the Janitor (Neil Flynn) playing some music for JD (Zach Braff) and starting to dance. This prompts JD to drift away into one of his obligatory daydreams and thus the dance montage begins. Martin Sexton’s “Diner” plays in the background as we’re given a glorious sequence of dancing: the Janitor doing what looks like a river dance, JD dancing in a room full of balloons, Turk (Donald Faison) doing his best Michael Jackson impression, Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins) dancing while JD plays the banjo for him (my favourite bit), Turk and JD in their wedding outfits (Mrs B’s favourite bit), before Dr Cox (John C. McGinley) brings the song to an end by grabbing a musician’s guitar and smashing it to pieces. This is a montage at its best.
