Scrubs Season 4 Episodes

25 Episodes 2004 - 2005

In the fourth season, J.D. (Zach Braff) completes his residency, though it does little to change his relationship with Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley), and is still on the outs with Elliot (Sarah Chalke) after their disastrous coupling. But it's not all bad news—he dates the upbeat and quirky psychiatrist Molly Clock (guest star Heather Graham). Turk (Donald Faison) and Carla (Judy Reyes), meanwhile, adjust to life as newlyweds, and Dr. Cox and Jordan (Christa Miller) learn something surprising about their divorce. Notable guest stars checking in to Sacred Heart this season include Molly Shannon, Matthew Perry, Colin Farrell and Clay Aiken.
