April 19, 2007: Their Story Season 6, Episode 17

Hi all. Kara Howland here subbing for the vacationing Brie Hearn. I want to assure you that I am a huge fan of this show. In fact, I've been a loyal Scrubs fan from the beginning. I'm lying actually. For some reason I didn't start watching this delightful comedy until about halfway through the inaugural season when all my friends badgered me into it. But I've been a loyal fan since then. Let's get to the recapping. A while back I heard someone in the hospital would be taking over narration duty from J.D. but I had no idea we'd hit the jackpot. I must admit the minds of Jordan, the Todd, and Ted were extremely scary but they were really fun as well. I do a have a few quick questions though. When did the Todd decide to specialize in plastic surgery? I watch this show pretty closely and I never picked up on that before. Hmm. And when did Turk start growing his hair back? I'm so used to seeing him being a baldie that it threw me at first. Who had the most disturbing thoughts? I was surprised it wasn't Jordan but being in her head was a little scary. I loved that she gets her coffee from the "coffeebucks" guy and tries to decide who will be least annoying to sit with. When she can't find any likely candidates, including Perry, she decides to spoil Elliot and Keith's fun. I love that Elliot takes Jordan's horrible relationship advice and proceeds to play games with Keith. But Jordan ends up feeling so bad about the trouble she causes she feels the need to fix the problem. What did we learn about Jordan from all this? She had very encouraging parents growing up and doesn't really have anyone but herself to blame for her mean streak. And she kind of enjoyed helping the blonde stick. The Todd's mind was a frightening but still funny place to be. It all started with this exchange: Coffebucks guy: "Jumbo coffee for Todd." Todd: "Everything's jumbo on the Todd." Then he proceeded to justify - in his head, of course - explaining that to a man. Priceless. We also learn that Todd tends to go somewhere else in his mind when people are talking about their problems but he can cleverly pretend he's been listening. That works particularly well with Turk. The Todd really came through for Turk when Turk was all gung-ho to challenge an attending. Everyone knows that's the way you get in trouble at work. Do not subvert your superior. Don't do it! From Todd we learn two things: he finds it extremely annoying when J.D. goes to that special place in his head and Todd thinks he's Turk's best friend. As if. That brings us to Ted's brain. It is the most disturbing place to be. Those constant thoughts of murder and suicide just can't be healthy. And who has a sexy daydream that includes their mother? Before tonight's episode I would have said only Todd's twisted mind could go there. I would have been wrong because Ted's poor mother gets killed in his daydream. But the funniest part of Ted's inner monologue is that Kelso can hear it. Ted proves that he can stand up to Kelso when it really matters, although probably only for other people and not himself. Dr. Kelso got some good screen time this week as well. I loved his joy about the needle shipments. That man knows how to pinch a penny and that sure got him in trouble with the nurses. The slowdown was awesome and I loved that Janitor showed his solidarity by participating. Because he couldn't work any slower, Janitor told Kelso he would have to resort to standing around doing nothing. Another genius move of his? Replacing a normal light bulb with a tanning bulb because he was tired of being the only white guy at his mosque. Highlights: "I know I'd be a lot happier with some extra cash, or a friend, or hair." "Excuse me Dr. Quinlan?" "Who?" "That's you Todd." "Oh yeah." "Internal uh-oh five." And I can't forget the stripper pole Elliot ordered for her apartment or her flag pole dance in the parking lot.
