This is technically the second to last song in "My Musical", which consists of both Carla telling Turk that's she's Dominican and them deciding if she's staying home or coming back to work. This scene for this song was shot 2 months after the filming of the episode because Judy Reyes, who plays Carla broke her pelvis before the initial shooting.

LyricsEdit

Carla:
I've had it up to here
So let me make it very clear
Because I swear I'll never clue you in again

Every time that you profess
I come from Puerto Rico --

Turk:
Yes?

Carla:
-- For the last time, Turk, I'm Dominican!

Turk:
Don't make a big to-do
I was simply testing you

Carla:
Then why'd you tell J.D. our baby's "blaxican"?

Turk:
Babe, you know I know the truth

Carla:
Well, I need a little proof
So list all you know about me, or no sex again

Turk:
Uh... Let's see...
Your name is Carla

Carla:
Oh, yes

Turk:
You are Latina

Carla:
Impressive

Turk:
You're a nurse, your mother's dead
And, wait -- I got it!
Three sisters

Carla:
Turk!

Turk:
Two sisters?
Well, I'm sure you have a brother who's a huge jerk-off!

Carla:
Tell me, what's my middle name?

Turk:
Okay, I'm tired of this game
Let's forget it, I give up, I guess you win again
But it's not just me who gets mixed up
By all this crazy ethnic stuff!

Todd:
Sorry, even I know, she's Dominican!
Boo-ya!

Carla:
Did I grow up in Illinois or was it Michigan?
How long before we met was I in medicine?
Was our wedding song the Beatles or Led Zeppelin?
Am I freakin' Puerto Rican or Dominican?

Turk:
The thing is guys remember facts
Like what Derek Jeter hit last year, which was three-oh-three!
And that is why our brains are maxed
And there's no room for things like birthdays or ethnicities!

Carla:
Well, thank you for that glimpse into the workings of the inner man

Turk:
Let's talk about your job and not the fact that you're --

Carla:
-- Dominican!

Turk:
You're not staying home from work

Carla:
Will that make you happy, Turk?

Turk:
I'll support you if you choose to earn the Benjamins

Carla:
Then I'll return to work today!
Now, you're sure that that's okay?

Turk:
I say "¡Sí!" -- which is "yes" in Dominican!
And Puerto Rican!

Carla:
Turk!

Turk:
But you're Dominican!

Answers to the questions posed by CarlaEdit

Did I grow up in Illinois or was it Michigan?

How long before we met was I in medicine?

  • Carla stated in November 2002 that she has been in medicine for eight years, hence she was in medicine for seven years before she met Turk ("My First Step").

Was our wedding song the Beatles or Led Zeppelin?

Am I freakin' Puerto Rican or Dominican?

  • As stated in the song, Carla is Dominican.

Production DetailsEdit

  • Fordham knew she wanted to write a Latin-themed number for Carla, but could not decide on a style; so she "literally was on iTunes listening to every Latin style of music [she] could think of," before settling on a tango.
  • The sequence was filmed two months after principal photography, to give Judy Reyes' pelvis enough time to heal for her to be able to tango.
