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.

This is the stupidist story ever. I am a huge Scrubs fan, and therefore do not watch Grey's Anatomy. The whole point of this line was to accuse Grey's Anatomy of copying the Scrubs show, because both of these have incredibly similar storylines with incredibly similar characters, while Scrubs started this first. If you watch the scene, both J.D. and Elliot look into the camera, as if to show they shouldn't be taken seriously.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Vulnerability isn't the opposite of strength. It's a necessary part. You have to force yourselves to open up, to expose ourselves, to offer everything we have and just pray that it's good enough. Otherwise, we'll never succeed.

Meredith

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.
