Grey's Anatomy Referenced on Scrubs

by at . Comments
These Scrubs Love Grey's AnatomyEveryone loves Grey's Anatomy these days. Even other fictional, TV doctors.

On last night's episode of Scrubs, the offbeat NBC comedy now in its fifth season, doctors John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) and Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke) admit to being big fans. When J.D. asks Elliot, his ex-girlfriend and current roommate, if she would like to join him in his pursuit of hooking up with interns -- an idea that would make certain neurosurgeons at Seattle Grace proud -- she replies that she would rather just go home and watch Grey's Anatomy.

J.D.'s whimsical reply: "Ah, yes, I do love that show. It's like they just watch our lives and then put it on television..."

While the pure emotion of Grey's Anatomy is about as far removed from the hilarity and zaniness of Scrubs as two medical shows can be, it's nice to see the latter's appreciation.

    Why??? because you GA fans can't understand humor , want proof well take this article for example , you idiots they made fun of you , i'm italian and caught the hint , my five year old child got it

    YES!!! Grey's is much better than Scrubs! And you can't even compare the two because Scrub's is a comedy and Grey's is a DRAMA/COMEDY/MEDICAL show!!!!!

    ok, first off, if you think Grey's Anatomy (and yes it is with an e, not an a, duh) then why are you on their website! Not to mention that GA has way more viewers and higher ratings that Scrubs has had or ever will. If you hate Grey's soooo bad, then back off our show! I mean, don't come to the site, don't read about it, and don't watch things about it or even watch it! If you hate it so much, then leave it alone and you don't have to deal with it! Oh, and go back to grammar school cause most of you don't have proper English.

    The people behind Scrubs did not praise Grey's Anatomy. They mocked it. Rightfully. Most because GA just sucks so bad it is a wonder it has any viewer at all.
