Dr. Todd "The Todd" Quinlan is a surgeon who works at New Sacred Heart. Despite his jock-like disposition, he is known to be a talented and knowledgeable surgeon. He started at the original Sacred Heart the same time as Turk, with whom he became good friends. He is also a member of the Brain Trust.

Todd is known for his non-creative sexual innuendos and high-fives.

The Todd is portrayed by Robert Maschio and appears in 126 episodes of Scrubs over all nine seasons, more than any other supporting character. He is first seen in the pilot "My First Day" and is last seen in the series finale "Our Thanks". It is assumed he is still a surgeon at New Sacred Heart.

As a SurgeonEdit

Todd started as a surgeon in the same intern class as Turk, J.D. and Elliot. He instantly fit in with and embodied the "jock-like" disposition of the other surgeons, and became a good friend of Turk's. He completed his residency at Sacred Heart where he also became an attending surgeon. Although he seems simple minded, he is actually a skilled surgeon due to his ability to zone out any distractions. ("My Hero") The Todd is currently still working as a surgeon, but at New Sacred Heart Hospital since the old one got demolished. He still hangs out with Turk a lot and behaves the same as before, not maturing in any way. Todd and Turk are as close as they've ever been. But now that J.D.'s gone, the two are no closer. And Todd hasn't changed one iota since. ("Our First Day of School")

SexualityEdit

The Todd's greatest joy in life is sex. Although he hasn't slept with nearly the amount of women he brags about, he makes sex jokes and innuendos about sex or the ladies practically every time he speaks. He hits on all the ladies, over which Laverne and Carla get quite worked up. The Todd thinks that his womanizing problems come from his poor relationship with his parents. However, sometimes The Todd checks out the men around Sacred Heart. Once he admitted to being gay so that he can take advantage of Elliot and Carla, but later in that same episode it is implied that he is bisexual. The Todd appreciates "hot", regardless of gender. It's possible that he is just so sex-obsessed that he has no preference whatsoever.

TendenciesEdit

The Todd enjoys giving and receiving high-fives putting them in second place behind sex. He will give any type of high-five to anyone for any reason. He is very adamant about being the only person who gives out high-fives. ("My Full Moon") He got his love for high-fives while attending med school at the Bahamas from his old professor. ("My Soul on Fire, Part 1") Some of his high-fives can hurt the weaker, or those not expecting them, for he visits the gym very often to train his arms. They can also bring a dead patient back to life. His right arm has a tattoo of "DOC" on it, which he shows off with his sleeveless scrubs. The Todd also has a large "banana hammock" collection, and is never without one. He has a rule that anyone who stays at his place must "hammock up". ("My Roommates")

RelationshipsEdit

Surgical TeamEdit

The person Todd gets along with best is Turk. They started as interns on the same day, and experienced many highs and lows during their time at Sacred Heart. When Turk's daughter was born, The Todd was among those waiting to congratulate him. They are both surgeons, and enjoy being athletic. Also on the surgery team is Dr. Wen, who recognizes Todd's skills as a surgeon because he has the ability to set his mind on one task.

WomenEdit

The Todd has the same relationship with all the women of Sacred Heart: he wants them, and they find his jokes and innuendos annoying and appalling.

Other Hospital StaffEdit

J.D. and The Todd never do too much together, except giving high-fives, although J.D. used to dislike Todd because he always hung out with Turk, which made him jealous. Todd is under the impression J.D. is Turk's second-best friend aside from him.

Todd and Dr. Kelso don't seem to understand each other, and Dr. Cox dislikes Todd as much as he dislikes all surgeons. Janitor thinks Todd is an airhead, but allows him to be part of his Brain Trust. Along with Ted and Doug, the Brain Trust sometimes would team up to do various things around the hospital, such as duct taping J.D. to the ceiling.

  • Todd at one time had his own website, at thetoddtime.com.
  • In one episode Todd revealed that he once did amateur porn, although he thought it was couples therapy.
  • Molly Clock once helps Todd realize that one of the reasons for his problems with women comes from his odd relationship with his mother (they made out once). This apparently fixed his perverse behavior, but unfortunately it was only temporary (she claims that it would only last a week without regular therapy), and he quickly resorted back to normal.
  • Todd can get confused and leave when everyone in a room stops moving and talking.
  • Todd can be distracted by mimed objects thrown in a specific direction.
  • Todd is so devoted to his sex jokes, that he will wait in hiding for an extended period of time until given the proper set up.
  • Todd is capable of hearing any phrases that can be taken out of context to sound lesbian homo-erotic from a distance.
  • Todd is capable of hearing a catfight from a distance.
  • Todd is a sleep humper; sometimes when he's banging the top mattress, he's thinking about banging the bottom one. ("My Advice to You")
  • Todd owns leather pants in three different colors. ("My Lunch")
  • Jordan Sullivan once gave Todd a set up for a sex joke as a present.
  • Todd can be easily tricked by yelling through a glass window to be heard as clear as day, then when the same person seconds later mimes the exact same thing to him he will think that the glass is too thick to hear them through.
  • Much like J.D.'s inability to see women with a wedding ring on, Todd is seemingly a normal person in the vicinity of women with an engagement or wedding ring on and will not (or possibly cannot) direct sex jokes towards them.
  • Todd studied medicine in the Bahamas and his favorite professor gives the best high-fives.
  • Todd is able to sense two people having sex in the vicinity (and can also sense what they are wearing).
  • Todd often cannot recognize his own last name (Quinlan). In several episodes, including the webisode "Our Meeting with Turk and the Todd", people mention "Dr. Quinlan," and Turk has to remind him that they're talking to him.
  • Todd is unable to spell his name, being corrected by Turk saying "And Todd has two D's" when writing a thank-you card for Dr. Casey.
  • Todd is a self published author with his book "Just The Tips".
  • Todd received a Four story atomic wedgey from the Janitor in "My Missed Perception" after trying to get in a bath with him. This registered a 10 on Sacred Heart's pain chart.
