April 26, 2007: Keri'ed Away! Season 6, Episode 18

Oh, Keri Russell, you've done it again. You've made magic. Gone was the sweet, shy Felicity we all remember so fondly. Nope, this character was pretty much a female version of the Todd and Janitor combined. It's pretty hard to believe that's even possible. But after stealing a poor bar patron's beer, asking if J.D.'s appletini comes in hetero, and explaining her very strict rules for "macking" without pleasure, I'd say she even has a little Jordan in her, too. What a gal. I can see how she would have been a blast for Elliot to hang out with back in college. It was even better to finally get a flashback scene for one of Elliot's crazy memories. Poor Grillface, formerly known as Steve. I loved the girl-scream when Melody and Elliot first saw each other. In fact, all of J.D.'s dream sequences were beyond excellent this week. "Turk's Booty Breakdown," well I'm not sure I really need to elaborate on that. I'm glad we all got to learn the delicate art of the bus driver dance. I'm going to tuck that sweet move into my back pocket for later. All the dance clubs in the greater Philadelphia area can consider themselves warned. I also loved that Turk even incorporated the bus driver into his initial victory dance in his battle with Dr. Cox. And speaking of, am I the only one who didn't see Turk's scheme-reveal coming? Just when I think I know all the tricks on this show. Seriously, as I was watching I was wondering how I'd be able to say that I thought Turk's actions were totally irresponsible. And when Carla jumped on Cox in defense of her hubby, I was equally shocked that she seemed to be OK with unnecessary surgery. It was definitely nice to see Cox come around near the end and stick up for "Ghandi," but I was so glad when I found out the whole thing was a hoax. I guess that teaches me a valuable lesson about doubting the morals of the writers on this show. Lesson learned. Now, the morals of Janitor? That's a whole different story. A wrong, borderline-abusive, cringe-worthy and hilarious story. The ghost who hates spills. It's genius! And at least he wasn't tormenting the really sick kids. Just the children who recently parted with their tonsils. That's not so bad. And it even led into a nice childhood story from Janitor that could be a window into why he became the man he is today. (Of course, knowing him, it was probably entirely false.) Apparently, after his tonsils were removed, Janitor's caretakers fed him only hot coffee and granola bars. Hot and scratchy. It's only funny because it hasn't happened to any of us. At least, I hope not. And finally, let's get to the big surprise of the night. After suffering some friend sabotage from J.D., Elliot came home to Keith's proposal. I'm honestly not sure what to think. My first instinct is that she'll accept, but that the marriage won't actually happen. Anyone with me on that theory? I'm interested to hear everyone's theories, so comment away! show less
