Why are you singing? Wait, why am I singing?Patti Miller

My Musical is the sixth episode of Scrubs' sixth season. A new patient, Patti Miller, sees and hears everyone around her singing, even though they are actually just talking. Carla wants to leave work to look after Izzy, to Turk's happiness, but she then has some second thoughts while Elliot is moving into her new house, but realizes that J.D. wants to move in with her too.

SynopsisEdit

Downtopoo

J.D. and Turk sing.

J.D. and Elliot are in the park when a woman, Patti Miller, behind them faints. When she wakes up she realizes that everyone, including herself, is singing. They take her to the hospital where everyone is still singing, when in reality people are just having normal conversations. J.D. does some tests on her to find out why she is singing, but Dr. Cox believes it is just because she is crazy and refuses to perform extensive tests, but when she expresses her annoyances at J.D., Dr. Cox changes his mind about the tests. After another song in her head, Dr. Cox finds out Patti hears everyone singing because she has an aneurysm, a fatal condition. Meanwhile, Carla works out that staying home and looking after Izzy would work out better than if Carla went back to work and hired a nanny, which makes Turk very excited. But after everyone expresses how they will miss her, Carla has some second-thoughts about leaving her job. Elliot finds a new apartment to move into, but finds out J.D. wants to move in with her, but Elliot doesn't want that to happen.

Goingtobeokay

The staff sings to Patti.

Elliot and Carla are thinking of how to break their news to J.D. and Turk, who are in another room 'singing' about their "guy love" for each other. Once the two finish their song, they meet Elliot and Carla who both break the news to them. J.D. deals with his news by ignoring Elliot and walking off, while Turk storms off and accidentally calls Carla Puerto Rican, despite her being Dominican. Carla tells Turk that he knows nothing about her, and that she still is going to return to work, but Turk supports this. Elliot then asks J.D. if he would like to move in with her, but he decides he won't, but says that they're still good friends. Patti is then scared about her aneurysm but after surgery, she is luckily cured and everyone stops singing. Despite this good news, Elliot still misses J.D. when she's at home, Carla misses Izzy when she returns to work and Patti misses the singing in her head.

FantasiesEdit

The majority of the episode is a semi-fantasy, as Patti sees everyone singing. However, J.D. does not have any fantasies.

QuotesEdit

Is there someone here with you?

Okay, so, if we check my salary and subtract the cost of a full-time nanny plus her health assurance, we'll be still ending up with...LOSING five dollars a month?Carla
This is completely your decision, I don't care one way or the other...Turk
Maybe I'll try staying home with Izzy for a year...
Yes! YEEEEEES!! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!


If you want to know what's wrong, don't sit and act so cool. Be a man and eat some bran and drop the kids off at the pool.Turk


Welcometosacredheart

Welcome to Sacred Heart!

Why are you singing? Wait, why am I singing?Patti Miller


All across the nation, we trust in defecation!J.D.


Do you have a hemorrhoid, or is it rectal cancer? When you flush your dookie down, you flush away the answer!Turk


The mind's a freaky thing, Elliot, maybe she does hear singing.J.D.
Yeah, well I haven't sung since the sixth grade talent show when I did Pat Benatar's "Hell is for Children". Then afterwards, Mr. Shemin, the M.C. said "No, Hell is for everyone who just had to hear you sing that song". My mom was so mad at him she slept with him and ruined his marriage.Elliot

TriviaEdit

6x6buyhimhisownplace

I could buy him his own place...

Guylove

That's why our matching bracelets say "Turk" and "J.D."!

  • When J.D. claims Elliot is closer to 40 than 30, she states she is actually 29. This would make her approximately two years younger than J.D.
  • In the song "Welcome to Sacred Heart", the young man with the STD bears a striking resemblance to Joey from Friends, possibly as a reference to the character.
  • This episode marks the first time when Janitor confirms what had been suspected for years: that his hatred for J.D. stems from the penny in the door in the first episode.

ProductionEdit

Mistakes & goofsEdit

  • During "For the Last Time, I'm Dominican", Ms. Miller's hair is slightly longer than in the rest of the episode due to the scene being shot later.
  • During "Guy Love" the clock behind Turk says 10:05, then immediately after when Turk and Carla sing "For the Last Time, I'm Dominican" the clock is set to 4:10. Although this is probably down to the fact, that particular scene was shot later due to Judy Reyes broken pelvis.
  • Even though Dr. Kelso is supposedly angry with Elliot for moving into private practice, they both sing and dance together in the song "Friends Forever". But this could be part of the hallucination.
  • In the song "For the Last Time, I'm Dominican", Turk makes reference to Derek Jeter's batting average "last year", which he says was .303. Jeter has not hit exactly .303 in any season.
Dominican

For the last time, Turk, I'm DOMINICAN!

  • Possible continuity error: Elliot states she is 29 years old, but in "My Occurrence" (Season One) it is revealed she is 26. Since "My Occurrence" takes place nearly five years before "My Musical", it doesn't work out (it would also make her the same age as J.D. who was revealed to be 26 in "My Day Off" and turned 30 in "My Day at the Races").
    • However, since most of that episode is the patient's hallucination, it could just be her imagination.
    • Also, not every season matches up to the calendar year, though it usually does. For example, J.D.'s son is conceived on "My Transition" (May 16, 2006) and is born in "My Hard Labor" (November 1, 2007; a total of 19 months.)
  • During "Gonna Miss You Carla", the clock behind Turk says 3:05 yet he says it's lunch.
    • Doctors' shifts are staggered so there is always someone on duty. Not all doctors eat lunch at noon.
Friends Forever

We'll be friends forever! We're gonna be friends forever! We will always be true-ooh-ooh!
