Grey's Anatomy Referenced on Scrubs

These Scrubs Love Grey's Anatomy
Everyone 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.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
