Scrubs: My Transition (finale)
Perry and Jordan are thrilled that their son Jack is growing up. In fact, he just hit a milestone that's imporant in the life of any parent - he pooped in the potty. They're both happy that he's getting older and they don't have to deal with all those baby issues. Of course this is all just a setup for the revelation that Jordan is once again pregnant. Neither of them are thrilled with that. They only begin to come around when Turk and Carla show up later to bring back the baby stuff they had given them. Carla and Turk talking about expecting a baby makes Perry and Jordan start to remember some of Jack's babyhood and they start to think they can do it again.
J.D. meanwhile is planning his first date with Dr. Briggs. After Elliot kills his initial plan of taking her to the mall food court, J.D. decides on a horseback ride on the beach. Unfortunately for him he doesn't use a saddle on his horse, a decision he regrets as the rubber meets the road, so to speak. His injuries mean Briggs has to examine crotchular-area for possible damage. Despite that the relationship continues to build, but is complicated by the fact that Elliot and Kim are becoming good friends. One night, when he thinks the two girls are at a Neil Diamond concert, J.D. goes to hang out on his porch. (Side note: The porch has apparently become a popular meeting place for the gay crowd. This was hilarious.) Kim and Elliot surprise him there, though. Elliot says she decided to take Keith and J.D. and Kim just hang out on the porch, surrounded by other (gay) couples on the lawn.
I'm not going to reveal the shock ending but let's just say my wife didn't stop saying "WHAT!" for about a half hour. Again, this was one of the series' best episodes and very much true to the Scrubs form. Highlights:
- Keith eating baby food at the shower and guessing the flavor is "cabdriver feet."
- J.D. assuring Kim his one enlarged testicle is a pre-existing condition.
- "Elliot Reid - Moment Killer."
- Jordan squeezing her enlarged boobs. That alone might earn this "Save until I delete" status on my TiVo.
- J.D. describing an appletini as a straight-guy drink.
