February 22, 2007: The Little Things Season 6, Episode 10

I know this week's opening segment wasn't really breaking any new ground, but sweet heavens, J.D. and Turk's man-love is just so perfect. I think most women I know would dance for joy if they had a boyfriend as thoughtful and supportive as Turk. His efforts to get J.D. his favorite almond biscotti were heroic and adorable. I'm swooning. And let's not forget J.D.'s contribution to this holy union. I really sensed the emotion in his voice when he told Carla, "He was a beautiful black blur," after Turk's unfortunate ceiling-fan accident. Sigh. Perhaps we need to assign these boys a proper Hollywood-couple name. How about J.urk? Eh, that doesn't quite capture the right sentiment. I'll keep thinking. Moving on... this week was all about the small but important accomplishments, as we followed the characters through a whole month of trials. (Side note: could this rapid advancement of time be a convenient way to quickly bring back a very pregnant Kim?) First we had Turk out of the OR and back into medical residency. It was fun to see him slipping into J.D.'s habits, mainly his desperate need for Dr. Cox's approval. Though I must say, I was a little disappointed in Cox's abandoned "longest shhh in the world" attempt. I just know he had it in him! Oh well. He at least brought out the good stuff when he told his intern to offer up a prayer to "Moko the Samoan Bird King." Outstanding. Next, there was the conflict between Elliot and Keith. I have to admit, I am totally with Elliot on the coaster issue. I mean, it's right there... waiting to accept one's glass sweat. Let the coaster do its job! On the other hand, it was refreshing to see Keith take a stand for once and throw a party in his room. He gets extra points for referring to Elliot as his landlord. Ouch. Even though they seemed to work things out after bonding over how wrong Carla was about their love, I still cringed a little when Keith continued to put his drink down sans coaster. Did he learn nothing? Sheesh. And finally, we saw J.D. struggling to get himself back onto the dating scene. I'm going to come right out and say it: Anne was a first-class jerk! The way J.D. asked her out may have been the cutest date request I've ever heard. Even from a "tent-dwelling-poop-fainter who can't drive." How are the ladies not eating this up? J.D. especially had me giggling while awwwing, especially after Anne said, "Brian can't hold small objects," and he joked that his ex-girlfriend had a similar problem. Come on, Anne, that's gold! But at least Brian had some faith in J.D. He actually seems to serve as a conduit for the main characters to work through their problems. I can't see any other reason for his presence on the show. Don't get me wrong, I think Brian is great (especially when he and J.D. team up to be silly), but I'm just worried that the writers are setting his character up to get close to all the main players so he can have a dramatic on-screen death that will break all of our hearts. Those writers are so sneaky! Oh, and I just have one last thing: Has anyone else noticed that in every single episode there is a very clear advertisement in the background for NuvaRing? I notice it every week. Just wondering if I'm the only one. show less
