So the other day, I was driving along and listening to the oldies station on the radio, and Boston's More Than a Feeling came on. For most of my adult life, the first thing I would have thought of was Matt Thurston blasting this song on his radio repeatedly in the dorms (first floor Waneta Hall fall of 1989). However, what immediately did spring to mind, was the "Air Band" from Scrubs, formed by Ted and the Janitor.
I miss scrubs. Sure, there were better comedies out there, Seinfeld for sure, M*A*S*H definitely. But for whatever reason, I don't miss them as much. Scrubs left an indelible impression on me. I find myself thinking of it often (like in the car), using lines from it often (to which most people just look at me like I'm a nutcase), and often I just break out in laughter because I remembered something from scrubs that reminds of something going on at the time (at which people look at me like I'm a nutcase).
|I miss these guys.|
Jim Valvano made his epic speech at the ESPY awards in which he said "You laugh, you cry, you think... that's a full day. That's a great day." That was scrubs, it made laugh, it made you cry, it made you think.
I'd like to post or link to some great "scrubs moments" here, but there are honestly too many... however, there are some great "compilations" on youtube, including:
- All the Girls Names that Dr. Cox called JD.
- The Best of The Janitor
- The Top 5 Dr. Cox Rants
- Turk and JD's Bromance
- Highlights from Ted's Band
- The Dance Montage from the "clip show"
- And, some of the best moments
You can still follow Zach Braff and Donald Faison on Twitter. They banter back and forth just like Turk and JD did. But I still miss the show. I still watch it when I can, and I always laugh. I miss you guys!
