May 10, 2007: Decisions, Decisions Season 6, Episode 20

You know, I smiled when I realized that in this episode Elliot would already be furiously planning her wedding. It's so very like her. And, of course, she was launching into the kind of details we could only expect from her. I'm not 100 percent positive on this, but I'm pretty sure we've heard in past seasons that she has reserved a church for several years. (Right?) I'd love to see the priest "crap a communion cracker" when he finds out this time it's for real! And I'll let everyone in on a little secret: The one plan of Elliot's that might not seem so crazy to some women is the parasite-so-I-fit-in-my-dress one. I know plenty of ladies who have daydreamed about getting a little worm to take care of business. Of course, no one would actually do it (uh, because it's icky), but it's sometimes nice to imagine it. But I've said too much already. Moving on... leave it to Cox to completely squash her happiness as she made plans. Again, I think he was bordering on the downright mean tonight. Of course, he obviously brought up some real doubts of hers, so maybe it was a good thing. The other benefit of his behavior was that we got to see Jordan going into threat mode and ordering him to "lay off the stick." I love that woman. And while all this wedding talk was going on at the home base, Turk, J.D. and Kelso got to take a trip. Who knew a doctor convention could be so fun? Kelso rolled in with his posse and managed to end up with a beer bottle glued to his face. We got to meet Dr. Toilet, who, we can only assume, will not put up with any of J.D.'s shenanigans now that he's on the Sacred Heart staff. And, of course, let's not forget the adventures of Turk and J.D. From their start as Dr. Vanilla and Dr. Chocolate, to their bonding time with Old MC, to their killer "Is there a doctor in the house?" joke, these guys were living the dream. Even staying in the same room. Awww. But all the fun could not last, naturally. It was the moment we've all been waiting for: Kim's (pregnant) return. I loved the way the big bombshell was revealed when J.D.'s hand went up after Kim asked if there were questions. It was such an honest moment. You could see the wheels turning in the poor guy's head. And you gotta love Turk's support of J.D. as he moved across the room to raise his hand as well. The man moves like a superhero. Anyway, as much as I might like to write Kim off as manipulative and sneaky, she seemed genuinely sorry about her lie. So I'm not entirely sure what to think. The end scene with J.D., Elliot and Kim only reinforced that feeling. One thing I did note, however, is that Kim used "crap salad" in a sentence, so maybe she has a little Elliot in her after all. Maybe that's what J.D. needs? Ah, I don't know. I'm just going to wait to see how this one plays out. I suppose I can't end this entry without mentioning the Janitor's latest high jinks. I'm sure we've all figured it out by now, but there's just no denying that he could be the smartest man in that hospital. He was clearly doing a better job as chief than Kelso does. He even had the ambition to set his goals on curing polio. What a guy! Then he goes and eliminates any possible retribution from Kelso by trading Ted's vacation time to bring Dr. Toilet on board at Sacred Heart. I'll say it again: genius. Other highlights: - J.D.'s worst mistake in life was seeing Basic Instinct 2. - Elliot went to calligraphy camp. - It's apparently possible to "air grope" someone.
