45 Favorite Episodes: 4

Scrubs is a hilarious program, but there's no denying, in my eyes, that its best episodes are the ones that don't induce laughter at all. But rather, they make you feel a wide range of emotions. And, in particular, Scrubs handled sadness exceptionally well. That's what puts My Lunch, the saddest one of the series, in my opinion, in the top four. It starts off with J.D. and Dr. Cox simply trying to help out some patients, but when J.D. fails one, Dr. Cox takes him out to lunch and tells him that he cannot blame himself for what happened. Quickly, the tables are turned and J.D. is forced to console Perry when he gets greedy by giving away J.D.'s patient's organs to his patients only to learn she had rabies. He loses all of them. As he loses the last one, the reactions of Cox, J.D., and Carla are too much to handle. It's so emotional. But so good. With a fitting use of The Fray's How to Save a Life.
