Scrubs - "My Finale, Part 1" (5/6) 8/7c - ½ hour
Scrubs - "My Finale, Part 2" (5/6) 8:30/7:30c - ½ hour

Spoiler:
J.D. is planning on leaving Sacred Heart but before he goes there are a few things that he wants to do including; getting a hug from Dr. Cox, and learning the Janitor's real name.

I know this is a day early, but because of the two-night event (and last week's ep was preempted... thanks Pres) I figured we gcould give folks a heads up.

Let's all say goodbye(?) to the staff of Sacred Heart.

Don't forget that this might actually get renewed without Braff, based on latest rumors.

Agreed. It's one of my favorite shows and probably the most underrated show on TV, right now.

I'm a week behind, but I have to chime in saying I loved seeing Kim & Sean show back up for one more episode. It's been so long, it's hard to think of Scott Foley as anyone but "Cool Breeze."

While I'm excited to see how they wrap this up and I'm upset to see it go, I don't think it'll really hit me that the show is done until JD says bye to Turk.

I'll take that bet... but let you keep the money.

Bill Lawrence said that the janitor's name is...

Spoiler:
... the same as the janitor in "Clone High", and that is...

I'm going to miss you, Sacred Heart. Please don't come back without the entire gang. Just let it go.

Amen brother. This isn't ER. It's Srubs and it won't be the same without the cast. I read an interview ith Lawrence where he said the only reason he would support the show continuing is so that people don't lose their jobs (the behind the scenes people). That made me really think, but I know I won't be around to watch anymore if the show comes back as a shell of its former self.

`Scrubs' finale is for season, or maybe forever

By LYNN ELBER, AP Television
Tue May 5, 9:51 am ET

LOS ANGELES "Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence is glad to reminisce about the plucky sitcom that survived years of time slot upheaval and a transplant from one network to another.

At this point, however, the discussion is akin to talking in the past tense about a hospital patient who is still working through the Jell-O course. In other words, "Scrubs" isn't a goner yet.

ABC may yet decide to give the show, or some incarnation of it, a spot on the network's 2009-10 schedule to be announced later this month. After all, ABC did rescue "Scrubs" after NBC dropped it last year, and the sitcom is produced by ABC Studios.

So Lawrence devised a season-closer Wednesday that also could serve as the show's final curtain.

It's an approach built around the departures of series star Zach Braff and Lawrence himself from the world of Sacred Heart Hospital.

"It's my last year and Zach's last year, so the finale is exactly what we would have written as a series finale. And if it goes forward, it's still what we would have written as Zach's finale," Lawrence said.

A key question: What happens with erratic lovebirds J.D. (Braff) and Elliot (Sarah Chalke)?

Lawrence can imagine a ninth season for "Scrubs," even if it loses cast members to other projects. After all, the show was first pitched as a comic version of "ER," able to accommodate new faces as the years passed.

There's been talk that some of the actors, including Braff, may return on occasion if the show is renewed. As for Lawrence, his "Cougar Town" pilot starring Courteney Cox is under consideration by ABC.

But, he said, "I don't think there can ever be a show called `Scrubs' that I wouldn't at least check in on."

It's been a memorable and instructive ride, especially the bumpy bit across the NBC schedule. Those scheduling shifts made it unlikely the comedy could achieve big ratings gain, a reality that Lawrence says he came to embrace.

"What was liberating about it was you stop trying to write things for everyone and make the people laugh who already liked the show and, believe it or not, it's a lot easier to do," he said.

Lawrence and his staff made the most of the show's cult status, reaching out to die-hard fans with Webisodes, regular "Ask `Scrubs'" videos in which cast members responded to audience questions and online Q&A sessions.

Those viewers understood and supported "Scrubs" even when its original network didn't, selling it in early promotional spots as zany and goofy when Lawrence was trying for something with comedic depth.

He recalled a first-season script, an exploration of death, in which each of three young doctors loses a patient. NBC executives tried to talk him out of it.

"I got phone calls: `Couldn't just one die? Or if two have to die, could one be a really mean person, like a racist?'" he recalled.

The episode remained intact, received Emmy nominations and helped cement the show's following.

"It made me have a respect for the audience," Lawrence said.

Wow, ballsy! Putting the words "Cougar" and "Courtney Cox" together. Somewhere a pig is flying.

One of my favorite episodes of the whole series.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Janitor's name is Neil...

This was a really solid episode. I noticed during the commercials for tomorrow night's finale, they never outright said it was a season or series finale and just kept referring to it as "the finale." I wish they would just put this baby to bed. They had a rough couple of seasons, but they really bounced back this season and I'd like for them to go out on a high note.

There were some great moments in this one:

Ted being confused as to why people are repulsed when he says he has sex to which Kelso tells him to visualize it himself.

The origin of the Blueberry sweetness.

Janitor realizing he is not the only weird one in the place.

Really good episode. Sad, but good. I like this show the most when it strikes that perfect balance of comedy and drama. I'm really going to miss it.
