It's been so long since I was an intern. I wonder what they're thinking...J.D.

"Their Story II" is the twelfth episode of Scrubs' eighth season. Three interns narrate their day. Denise makes a decision that puts Elliot in a tight spot. Derek finds it hard to deal with the big personalities of Sacred Heart. Sunny tries too hard to make friends.

SynopsisEdit

After a lecture by Dr Cox, J.D. reminisces on how long it has been since he was an intern, and passes the narration along to the new interns at Sacred Heart: Sunny, Denise, and Derek.

Turk and Derek.

DerekEdit

Turk introduces Derek, a new surgical intern, to the other surgical interns at Sacred Heart. He cuts the intro short because he sees J.D., who has recently been gaining attention for becoming the person who can complain to Dr. Cox enough to get things accomplished. Later, Derek watches Turk and Todd in surgery, and Turk thinks deeper about J.D.'s new responsibility around Sacred Heart, and starts to get a little jealous. At the front desk, Carla rushes in to thank J.D. for getting Cox to hire new nurses, Turk gets even more jealous of him and tells J.D. off. The next day in the cafeteria, Derek confronts J.D. for being too arrogant, Carla for not supporting her husband, Dr. Cox for enjoying other people arguing, and Turk for letting him down as a black role model.

Denise complains to Katie and Sunny.

DeniseEdit

Denise and Elliot have a new patient, Paige. Denise compliments Elliot who has been supportive of her, and Elliot is extremely appreciative of it. Denise suggests an invasive test for Paige, which Elliot quickly tosses aside. J.D. notices that Denise is grumpy and gets her to confide in him. He tells her that she needs to fight to have her voice heard. Denise then attempts to compliment Elliot again and gets her to perform the test on Paige. The results of the test turn out negative, but the test left a scar on Paige's face, which makes her cry. Elliot tells Denise that she ignores intern's ideas because they are not accountable for the results. In the end, Denise tells Paige that it was her idea to perform the test, and Paige is thankful for her honesty.

8x12 Sunny talks to Janitor

Sunny confronts Janitor

SunnyEdit

Sunny counts her new friends at Sacred Heart, 31, and shares her joy about this with Howie and Katie. Howie grabs what he thinks is a mint (which turned out to be a highly concentrated urinal cake) off of Janitor's cart, which rolls down toward a woman in a wheelchair. At the last second, the cart stops because Janitor has it hooked up to a motor he stole from a rude patient. Janitor doesn't get mad at Sunny, and she counts him as her 32nd new friend. Later, as she is about to get on the elevator, Janitor stalls her, but only because he rigged the elevator to scare Howie and Katie for touching his cart. He tells her she is too weak to receive any of his pranks. When she confronts him about his accusation that she is too weak, he tells her that he pranked her by making her think of nothing else besides him being nice to her.

In the end, Janitor splatters paint on Sunny showing her that he will prank everybody, Denise is still eager to diagnose patients and even pre-apologizes, and Derek's rant to his superiors isn't reprimanded, but seemingly has done good things to their relationships.

Janitor storyEdit

8x12 cart chases JD

Janitor's cart chases J.D.

Janitor convinces J.D. that he was hypnotized fifteen years ago, and leads him to believe that if he says the word "popsicle" he will fall asleep. He reveals this to be untrue at a very inconvenient time for J.D., when he threw a tomato at Janitor. Later, Janitor hooks up his cart to a motor he stole from a rude patient. He "trains" it to do tricks such as fetch him a lemonade. He treats it as a pet.

Janitor also makes Sunny's life miserable, as well as rigging the elevator to scare Katie and Howie.

Look, Tammy, we don’t have the money. If you want to go out and raise the cash yourself, then feel free; maybe you could sell your eggs to a fertility clinic or sell that beard of yours to the ridiculous museum. Better yet, you could make a list of all the people that you drive insane and tell them that for a nominal fee that you’ll never speak to them again. You will of course offer a monthly subscription at a reduced rate just to reel them in and after a while of you not talking to them people will forget just how annoying you are, and they’ll let their subscription run out, and BANG! That’s when you show up at their house, and you drive them insane all over again by speaking to them, and here’s the kicker - when everyone’s trying to resubscribe you’ll lay it on them that the price is now quadruple, and I’m predicting and this is a loooow end guesstimate, you’re looking at about $100,000,000 a quarter, easy. You give the hospital a hundred thou, we hire a few nurses, but until then, you go tell Carla it ain’t happening.Dr. Cox


It's been so long since I was an intern. I wonder what they're thinking...J.D.

Notice me! Notice me! Notice me! Notice me! Notice me! Notice me!Katie's thoughts
...'cause I'm going to hit that! Oh yea!Howie's thoughts

I'm in such a good mood. I think I'll do a little dance!Sunny's thoughts

TriviaEdit

  • This is the first episode narrated by non-series regular or supporting cast members. Eliza Coupe had only appeared in 6 previous episodes (and 5 webisodes), Sonal Shah had only appeared in 2 previous episodes (and 8 webisodes), and this was the first episode in which Lee Thompson Young appeared.
  • There is a minor medical error in this episode. When diagnosing temporal arteritis, there are many easier ways to diagnose than a temporal artery biopsy (in fact it is hardly ever performed in clinical practice). There are less invasive tests which would tell us even if it is warranted. Moreover, the scar left by this procedure is much smaller than the one shown.
  • The "I told you so" dance that Elliot does is the same that she does in the earlier episode "My Tuscaloosa Heart". The script had originally called her to do the splits in both the reality and fantasy versions, but while shooting they realized that they had established already that Elliot was wearing a dress, so instead they changed the scene to have her address out loud why she isn't doing the splits.
  • The tag at the end of the episode was outtakes of the Janitor talking to and "feeding" his cart.
  • Ken Jenkins does not appear in this episode.
  • The Janitor uses the word "popsicle" to trick J.D. into thinking he was hypnotized. However, in the episode "My Own Personal Hell", Dr. Cox tells the staff that the Janitor said he will popsicle anyone not responding correctly to question who was the greatest doctor (that being Dr. Cox of course).
