I just noticed that in episode 1 of season 3 ("My American Girl"), the Janitor mentions a little piece of his backstory which is practically the same as famous serial killer Ted Bundy: growing up believing his grandparents were his parents and that his mother was his sister. Just thought that was kind of interesting.

Wham Episode needs cleanup. A Wham Episode shakes the status quo. It's not just a powerful episode.

Several episodes are excellent episodes, tearjerkers or have internal Wham moments, but don't significantly affect other episodes.

Killed Off for Real doesn't fit the series. It's for works with supernatural elements where Death Is Cheap and resurrection is possible.

Removed from the page:

  • Killed Off for Real: Numerous patients, which doesn't need spoilering. However, a few longer-running recurring characters do: Patients Jill Tracy and Mrs Wilk. Ben Sullivan, whose death made Dr. Cox suffer from a Heroic B.S.O.D. in the episode My Screwup. And beloved nurse Laverne.
    • However Laverne's actress came back to play a character who was identical in personality to Laverne. Her name? Shirley.

Would it make sense to change the folders so that Season 9 is all in one folder? It really is, for all intents and purposes, a spin-off/sequel series in all but name. It's also less trope-y enough that it wouldn't require more than one folder.

Scrubs is the trope namer of:

Is it? Is it really? I'm pretty sure those are both preexisting terms. Moment Killer certainly is.

Moment Killer is DEFINITELY a preexisting term... I'm inclined to agree.

I agree, and I've removed Moment Killer. I also moved Trope Namer to the trivia page.

In the Iraq War episode the Janitor said that we should look for Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. Now that Osama was found and killed in Pakistan should that be hilarious in hindsight or funny aneurism moment or what?

Janitor's Name:

We know that Janitor, in character, appeared in the Harrison Ford movie "The Fugitive". Checking the credits for that film should reveal his name.

Everybody and their brother already thought of this. They also considered the highly likely possibility that it's his stage name in-character.

what trope(s) would the subplot about Dr. Mickhead killing his wife fall under?

Is JD and doctor cox's actions really Moral Dissonance? while it never truly acknowledge the extent of the morally reprehensibly, It's makes clear that they were in the wrong and are never portrayed anything noble or heroic for it.

No Fourth Wall? Are you serious? JD's Inner Monologues are not even CLOSE to No Fourth Wall.
