When Scrubs left off last season, J.D. (Zach Braff) and Elliot (Sarah Chalke) were dangerously close to sabotaging their respective relationships with Kim (Elizabeth Banks) and Keith (Travis Schuldt) by sharing a kiss. They did not go further than a pucker, but they did manage to do damage to their relationships. J.D. has become a father, and he's finally starting to grow up a bit - but not too much. He's trying to strike a balance between being responsible and having fun. You'd think he would have done this earlier, but then, this is J.D.

Elliot breaks off her engagement to Keith, and he's pretty cruel to her for a while.

Janitor (Neil Flynn) is pretty much status quo, with one exception. He's met a lady (named Lady) and must learn to reveal his crazy to her a little at a time.

Doctor Kelso (Ken Jenkins) has reached retirement age, but he's keeping it mum. He doesn't want to be pushed out of his job.

Turk (Donald Faison) has learned to speak Spanish, but why hasn't he told Carla (Judy Reyes)?

The final episode of the season is sort of a tribute to The Princess Bride. The show pulls out all the stops on one episode each season, and this one is pretty fun. Janitor is a giant, Ted (Sam Lloyd) is a hunchback, Jordan (Christa Miller) is a witch, Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) is a heroic knight, Turk and Carla are a two-headed witch, Elliot is a princess, and (of course) J.D. is the village idiot.

Scrubs is a unique series. Its weak foundation of medical drama provides sort of a general structure to hang the quirky characters on. The narrative is from J.D.'s perspective mostly, with his voice-over telling what he's thinking. He often drifts into flights of fancy, usually preceded by tilting his head to the side and staring into space. Scrubs has been a favorite of mine for years, and this, the seventh season, is the second to the last. For the new season, the show will move from NBC to ABC. I can't wait to see how it all ends.
