Is Sarah Chalke exiting Scrubs? Well, you'd certainly think so considering the May 10 season finale ended with her Elliott character accepting a job at another hospital. Well, as first reported in Ask Ausiello, executive producer Bill Lawrence assures us that not only will Chalke be back next fall, but Elliott's new workplace will become a regular part of the show. "I imagine we'll see [Sarah] the same amount as before," he says, adding that the change of scenery will allow Elliott to "reinvent" herself. "Even though she'll still be friends with [J.D., Turk and Carla], she can completely redefine who she is." OK, just please tell me Tara Reid doesn't work there, too.
