"My Princess" is the eleventh and final episode of Scrubs' seventh season, and the last to air on NBC. After having a bad day at the hospital, Dr. Cox goes home to find out he has to tell his son Jack a fairy tale. J.D. and Elliot work together to diagnose Marian.

After having a bad day at the hospital, Dr. Cox goes home to find out he has to tell his son Jack a story. So he retells his day as a Medieval fairy tale. One of the Princess's (Elliot) handmaidens (Marian) has fallen under the control of a monster. She calls the help of the village idiot (J.D.) to help her along with the help of the giant (Janitor), the two-headed witch Turla (Turk and Carla), and the knight (himself) they have to defeat the monster before it is too late. The knight tells them to go to the forbidden forest, which the dark lord Oslek (Dr. Kelso) has forbidden to enter, and find the golden ring.

7x11 Elliot and JD IV

In reality, Elliot can't find the diagnosis of one of her patients. So she and J.D. have to find it while Dr. Kelso has imposed a new 12-hour shift rule. While Elliot's patient declines, Dr. Cox tells them that they cannot do anything unless the diagnosis is found. They find the diagnosis thanks to the fact that some interns were discussing Wilson's disease while playing "Diagnosis Jeopardy" earlier, and confirm it by looking into the patient's eyes, where they see copper deposits in the form of a golden ring.


The Princess and The Village idiot

On a side note, J.D. and Elliot explore the possibility of having feelings for each other. Even though it appears to be evident that they do they both decide that their "almost kiss" meant nothing to either of them, Dr. Cox sheds some light on this saying "they are both idiots..." to his son whilst telling him the story.

At the end of the story, Jack asks "What happened to the maid?" Dr. Cox replies that she lived happily ever after. However, when Jordan later asks him if that's actually what happened, he states "That's the way I'm telling it," implying that the patient was unable to get the liver transplant necessary to save her from Wilson's disease.

Damn it Giant! Why is this village so filthy?!Irritable Townswoman of Color

Well, Irritable Townswoman of Color, it could be because this town is paved with mud or maybe it's because I've been swamping everyone's porch with Ox Urine [Laughs]. I jest, only yours. D'you wanna know why?! You've been telling everyone I eat babies! I don't eat babies! With babies it's a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips...I eat Toddlers.Giant

7x11 Kelso abducts Doug
  • This is Scrubs' 150th episode.
  • Due to the 2007-2008 writer's strike creator Bill Lawrence never got to complete the season, so the episodes were rearranged with this episode being the "finale" for NBC.
  • This episode was #709 in production order, which was made before "My Dumb Luck", so Dr. Kelso is still Chief of Medicine. Part of this is because of NBC airing episodes out of order.
  • Bill Lawrence's wife Christa Miller wanted an episode for her kids to be able to watch, so Bill ordered a fairy tale episode to be made.
  • The witch "Turla" is based on Dr. Cox often referring to Turk and Carla as "two-headed" in his various rants.
  • "Turla" was one of the suggestions for Izzy's name.
  • Elliot's patient's name is a play on the name Maid Marian from Robin Hood.
  • The Village Idiot follows up a joke with "Good Morrow!!!" much like J.D.'s tendency to follow up a joke with "Hello!!!"
  • The Monster holding the handmaiden/patient bears a resemblance to the Smoke Monster in Lost.
  • The Irritable Townswoman of Color seems to be based on Aloma Wright's previous character, Laverne, rather than Nurse Shirley, as Shirley rarely shows signs of irritability.
  • The Giant's footsteps make the ground shake, although he does not appear to be big enough to do so. When walking away with the Hunchback (Ted) he appears to be only about twice the height of a normal person.
  • The Dark Lords name "Oslek" is "Kelso" backwards.
  • Todd is a fairy in this episode, most likely bcause the term "fairy" refers to an effeminate or homosexual male.
  • Knight Percival Cox's "My name is Percival Cox. You're killing my friend. Prepare to die!" is a take on Inigo Montoya's "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!" in The Princess Bride.
  • This episode aired one week before NBC on Irelands public broadcaster RTÉ 2 who aired Season Seven in production order.
  • This was the final episode of the show to use the end credits version of the theme song. The credits in Season 8 would run over out-takes from the episode, while Season 9 had specially-written "epilogue" scenes for the credits to run over.
