My Lunch, from start to finish. Three patients are all sick and need new organs. Jill Tracy also reappears and ends up in the hospital and J.D. thinks she died from a cocaine overdose because she was desperately lonely and J.D. ignored her when they ran into each other in public and blames himself. Dr Cox talks him out of feeling that blame and uses Jill's organs once she dies. It turns out she died of rabies and all three patients die.
- Making it even more upsetting is that J.D. telling Cox that the patients would have died anyway almost works... right until the last one dies.
Dr. Cox: He wasn't about to die, was he, Newbie? Could have waited another month for a kidney.
J.D.: Remember what you told me? The second you start blaming yourself for people's deaths... there's no coming back.
- Even worse is Dr. Cox's reaction to his last patient dying. To see someone as typically level-headed as Dr. Cox completely flip his shit in impotent rage is... unsettling. Not to mention his reaction just before:
- Add to this the whole scene being framed perfectly with How To Save a Life playing just in case you didn't feel like you were being hit by a 2x4 yet. Scrubs always did frame scenes perfectly with music, but none better than this one.
