45 Favorite Episodes: 34
This is a hugely underrated episode of Scrubs. While I adore the show and became attached to it for its wonderful sense of humor, the episodes with heart were the ones that kept me addicted. This one isn't an outright sad episode, but it's a remarkable one with precise attention to detail and masterful storytelling. The one hundredth episode, My Way Home, pays homage to The Wizard of Oz as J.D. is trying to get home (after a great Braffian rendition of Africa by Toto), Turk is searching for a heart, Eliot is seeking knowledge, and Carla wants to gather courage. The Janitor is painting a yellow line (though he spray-painted J.D.'s shoes ruby red) and Dr. Cox's nickname for J.D. in this episode? Why that would be Dorothy, of course. Ted crushes the end of this episode with a touching song that reminds us why we return to Sacred Heart time and time again.
