Hiya! My name is Bob Kelso and I like whores.Dr. Kelso

"My Perspective" is the ninth episode of Scrubs' sixth season. Elliot and Turk have to look after J.D. when he is diagnosed with a rare disease. Turk's patient loses faith in him after he admits the truth. Carla tries out her new "I have a baby" excuse and the Janitor goes on vacation, but that doesn't stop him tormenting J.D..

SynopsisEdit

6x9-Meathead

Todd acts like a meathead in front of Brian Dancer.


Turk ignores Dr. Kelso when he tells the staff to lie to their patients in order to avoid lawsuits. Turk then accidentally tells his patient, Private Dancer, that he was just an average student at school, meaning that his patient asks for a different surgeon to operate on him. His replacement turns out to be a veteran surgeon from Croatia, Miloš' Radovicnouizicioiuizcinicizich'l, who, despite being an accomplished attending in his home country, has to redo his residency at Sacred Heart.

6x9-Dr. Cox invites J.D. for a beer

Dr. Cox invites J.D. to grab a beer with him.

Meanwhile, J.D. is coping with a problem which means that he faints every time he goes for a poo - causing Turk and Elliot taking turns to look after him. Turk realizes that Dr. Kelso was right about lying, but still doesn't want to do it - but Dr. Cox tells him to tell the truth, but without giving false hope - which he does, resulting in his patient restoring his faith in Turk. J.D., meanwhile, is tied to the ceiling on demand of Janitor by Ted and Todd, where he looks down on people whining to their friends about the problems they have, which are the exact same problems J.D. has had over the years (getting Dr. Cox's attention and approval, falling in love with a female best friend, and finding the perfect hairstyle) - and J.D. realizes how fed up Elliot and Turk must get when they listen to him whining, and that they only put up with it because they are friends.

Ya hear that, everybody? I do have it rough. And that comes from a man who knows a teensy bit about adversity. And why is that, Turk?J.D.
Because I'm black.

6x9-Happy J.D.

J.D. tries to sleep, satisfied that the Janitor's plan to attack J.D. with a wolf backfired on him

  • According to Makeup Department Head Phyllis Williams in the DVD commentary for the episode, the DOC tattoo on The Todd is a stamp which is then filled in.
  • According to Writer/Producer Angela Nissel in the DVD commentary for the episode, a number of scenes had to be rewritten around Judy Reyes. For example, Carla was meant to be in the bedpan race. She also appears in the episode using a cane. In the DVD commentary for "My Road to Nowhere" it is stated Judy Reyes broke her hip.
  • In the episode, Todd wears a t-shirt with the words: TheToddTime.com. This website, which used to contain a video of Todd in a banana hammock showing his muscles outside the hospital, is no longer working, but is reachable thanks to the Wayback Machine.
  • According to Writer/Producer Angela Nissel in the DVD commentary for the episode, the character of Carl, one of the leaders of the angry mob who attack Frankenstein, is played by "Our Prop Man" Patrick.
  • Carla can be seen using a cane in several scenes because Judy Reyes was still recovering from a broken hip when this episode was filmed. In the previous episode, Carla hurt her leg in the RV crash, allowing her to work with a cane.
  • When Dr. Kelso is clearing Turk's name of the OP schedule board, the schedule lists Cox and Dorian as surgeons for the two procedures prior to Private Dancer's, although both are not in sugery but in internal medicine.
  • Private Dancer assumes that surgeons are geniuses, although in the Scrubs universe they are stereotyped by everyone as being "dumb jocks."
  • J.D. says that Buzz and Donna's front bathroom has a hook on the door which he uses to hang his pants on, but when he is found unconscious, the hook is actually on the wall next to the door.
  • In this episode it is revealed that Colonel Doctor is Lloyd's father.
  • In the Janitor's email to Ted, the "to" and "from" lines are both the same (someone named Ellen).
  • When Turk draws the incision line on Private Dancer he draws it on the right side of his abdomen. A couple of camera views later the line is on the left side.
