My Déjà vu, My Déjà vu is the twenty-second episode of Scrubs' fifth season. As the episode title suggests, J.D. notices that things move in cycles, or Déjà vu, around the hospital. Dr. Cox returns to Sacred Heart after his breakdown, and toys with Elliot while Carla makes a rule that Turk can't do anything she's not allowed to do while pregnant.


J.D. experiences Déjà VuEdit


J.D. wears his hairmet - again

Dr. Cox returns to the hospital after his drunken breakdown over the death of three patients. J.D. notices that many things have begun to repeat themselves at Sacred Heart, hence the Déjà vu. They include Dr. Cox making fun of J.D. for his "hairmet" ("My Lucky Night"), J.D. telling the Janitor and Troy a nickle riddle ("My Lucky Night"), Dr. Cox not treating Elliot as a real doctor, and Turk not being excited about the baby stuff Carla makes him do.

Elliot & Dr. CoxEdit


The team celebrate Dr. Cox's return.

5x22-Dr. Cox confesses

Dr. Cox confesses to Elliot that he is scared.

Elliot asks Dr. Cox for instructions on a patient and he can't answer, making Elliot suspicious of Dr. Cox's confidence. She tries reaching out to him and he pretends to go along, saying he has trouble making gut calls now. He tells Elliot what to put the patient on. When Elliot informs Laverne of Dr. Cox's decision, she replies "I know, he told me 3 hours ago". In the background Dr. Cox is laughing and dancing. Dr. Cox talks to Elliot who is mad at him, saying that he has never had any respect for her as a Doctor. He admits that he couldn't answer her question earlier because he was scared. Telling her this makes her feel more respected.

Turk & CarlaEdit

5x22-Carla takes Turk's coffee

Carla takes Turk's coffee and gives it to J.D.

Meanwhile J.D., Carla, and Turk are at the bar and J.D. and Turk are obsessing over their drinks, annoying Carla who can't have alcohol because of her pregnancy. She snaps and makes a rule that Turk can' do anything she can't do pregnant. Carla yells at Turk for riding an exercise bike, something she can't do. Turk is fed up with this rule and they argue, until Carla feels some pain from her pregnancy. They go to a doctor and he says it's fine and normal. Turk apologizes and Carla says it's OK, that it was nice having Turk concerned for her. She says he can drink and do other things she can't do, but asks him not to do it around her.

Recurring ThemesEdit

Janitor storyEdit

5x22-Janitor and Troy

Janitor and Troy try to solve J.D.'s riddle - again.

Once again, J.D. tells the Janitor and Troy the nickel riddle, and they spend the whole episode trying to solve it. They finally conclude that it is a penny and a dime with a Roosevelt imperfection today worth 29 cents. J.D. tells them at the end that it is a nickel and a quarter. The Janitor and Troy destroy his bike claiming its a riddle, "two guys destroyed your bike and one of them wasn't me". This makes J.D. remember what happened to his old bike. Throughout the episode Troy is acting stupid and mispronouncing words like Strawberry, "Strawbrerry" and Library "Libary".

Nice helmetDr. Cox

Actually it's not a helmet, it's a hairmet. It has extra room built in so you don't mess up your hairdo.J.D.

Do you love it as much as I do?Dr. Cox

Oh, your face is as red as a strawbrerry.Troy
