April 12, 2007: Good Advice Season 6, Episode 16

Boy, funerals are a real downer, but Laverne's laid the groundwork for a ton of good jokes tonight, besides providing some moments of introspection for the Sacred Heart staff. I think we can all admit to picturing our own funeral, but J.D.'s was more of a treat than I could have ever imagined. Nothing could be better than a choir singing Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time." And then there was J.D.'s huggable corpse. Naturally, no fantasy of his would be complete without Dr. Cox's long-awaited declaration of love. It was perfect. Back in real life, though, Laverne's wasn't too shabby either. Even I felt a wave of emotion when the preacher ended with, "I love you and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it." And he wasn't even talking to me! It was just so sweet. Another sweet moment tonight? Janitor teaming up with J.D. and Turk to help a deaf father and child. That's two weeks in a row of disarming kindness from him. What is going on here? Don't get me wrong, though: I like it. Of course, he didn't completely let go of the personality we all know and love. His story about learning sign language from a gorilla at the zoo was so typically wacky. I love that after all this time people are finally calling him out on his lies, but it still never fazes him. The man is unflappable. Oh, and J.D. had a good one-liner after Janitor asked if he's emotionally needy: "Have we not met?" Perfect. But the Elliot and Keith story line not so perfect. It's not that I think the story wasn't well-written. I'm just not sure I buy them becoming a normally functioning couple. But maybe that's the point. Maybe that's why Keith finally spoke up and decided to demand some affection from Elliot. Either way, the one part that really stuck out tonight was Kelso's meddling during their fight. First there was that whole ugly "nagger" misunderstanding. Then, after Keith stormed off, Kelso sympathized with Elliot by saying, "Bitches, huh. Whaddaya gonna do?" I swear, that man constantly surprises me, which is really saying something after all these years. Oh, how I love this show. Other highlights: - Jordan's simple "Pass!" on Dr. Cox's request for her to resume some domestic duties. - Caboodle. As in "caboodle-hole" or, "That sucks caboodle." Try using it in a sentence tomorrow! - Glow-in-the-dark sign-language gloves. J.D will go to any length to have a great night with Turk. - J.D.'s accidental Nazi salute when he was trying to sign, "Booya!" That's all for now. See ya next week. show less
