45 Favorite Episodes: 14
The series finale of Scrubs is, in my opinion, the greatest series finale in the history of television. It is so beautiful and such a great farewell to the show which had provided so many laughs and tears over the course of its eight (and only eight) seasons. The first half is more of the same Scrubs antics. J.D. and Turk perform one last flying eagle, for example. But the second half is when it starts getting emotional. J.D. has a heart-to-heart with Carla about leaving and he learns the Janitor's "real" name. But then it gets rough as Dr. Cox vents about his respect and love for J.D., not knowing "Newbie" is right behind him the whole time. The two hug as J.D. leaves the hospital and walks down a hallway of his shared experiences with people before watching what he hopes his future to be on the banner for his goodbye. Then, he walks off as the instrumental theme song plays slowly. It's so perfect. I love it.
