I'm going to be honest I knew Jordan's brother was dead ten min in because I just started watching this in 2018 and I write twists for a living, so it was a little obvious to me that him tagging along would add to the final scenes ending BUT THATS NOT THE POINT of this episode. It wasnt to suprise us. What made me suspicious right away was how Cox was so accepting of his advice and forgiveness. His wisdom. It was inconsistent with his character so that threw up red flags.

This episode had a beautiful message and once again, one of the best episodes puts Cox rigut in the center of things. I'm not sure I've ever loved a character more than I do Doctor Cox. Even more than i loved Michael Scott. Sure, they're way two different people but they both have one common thing in common.

I've kept quiet since season 1 reviews as I've been entertained non stop. Everyone of the polls I've seen, more than most put season3 as best season but I have to say I'm a little discouraged because of the first 10 episodes being vanilla. It only picks up when Michael J. Fox comes and the editing they do for him is fantastic. The scene with him washing his hands is so heart felt because I can feel him emotions behind those true words he says to JD.

But this seasons best episode so far isnt this one. Sorry. I know everyone will disagree with me. I guess it's because I expected this one to play out like it did, but the Roof top toilet was imo the best episode! Between Ted wanting to jump off the roof and the birds to the epiphanys on the bowl, it was just superb.

This episode reminded me of one thing most importantly aside from the message, Brendan Frasier is such a great actor! I'm glad hes making a come back back here in year 2018, with Trust and Condor, two series hes featured in. He has the acting chops and always has since Encino man and Blast from the Past! I feel like someone misguided his career because he should have been nominated in movies and accepting great quality scripts, so its nice to see that hes made the modern day transition to TV. I wish him the best.

Also, I can see how underrated scrubs is when people talk about comedies. This show inspired community, Brooklyn 99 and many others. Between the JD and Turk bromance and super friendship that was featured in community of diversity too and the mind clouds of scenes flashbacks in Brooklyn 99.

When you watch all the best comedy you notice how each one has touched another in some way.

But Dr. Cox, man is he the man people will root for because of who he is when hes by himself and can barely stand it. The character development has fleshed out since season 1.

Second favorite character: yes, the janitor! He is incredi le and the best acted man. Perfectly casted.

This show is such a major player, no wonder people all talked about how this show got them throug so many things in life. After working a long days I talk solace in coming home to putting on Scrubs and hanging out with this flawless xast.
