Scrubs

The janitor's nametag actually says "Janitor" emphasising the mystery surrounding his name.

Ben Sullivan, Dr. Cox's best friend and brother-in-law, loves his camera and takes pictures everywhere he goes. Brendan Fraser, who plays Ben, has a great interest for photography in real life.

The picture of the lady in Ted's office is his real-life mother.

Pilot - S1-E1

JD's sitcom fantasy takes place on the set of My Wife and Kids.

My Screw Up - S3-E14

This episode pays homage to The Sixth Sense in the way that Dr. Cox sees Ben, but no-one else does. The audience doesn't know this but they do drop a clue. Dr. Cox asks Ben, "Are you still doing that camera thing?" to which Ben replies, "Till the day I die." And after J.D. tells Dr. Cox that the patient died, Ben no longer has his camera.

My Cake - S4-E6

In this episode JD learns his father's passed away. JD's dad was played by John Ritter, who died in September 2003. The episode is dedicated "To our friend, John Ritter".

The shot of the car driving off the bridge was actually taken from the Tom Cruise film Vanilla Sky, as mentioned in the director's commentary.

My First Step - S2-E7

In "My First Step", when J.D. is talking to his dad - played by John Ritter - when he was younger, the set they used was the one for 8 Simple Rules... For Dating My Teenage Daughter, in which Ritter plays the dad.

Season 1 generally

The initial concept for the janitor was that he was only in J.D.'s imagination. If you watch the early episodes, the janitor doesn't interact with any of the other characters. The idea was eventually abandoned because the character became too popular.

My Faith in Humanity - S4-E23

JD and Turk arrange the schedules so Dr. Turner and Dr. Hooch are working together. Dr. Turner is played by Jim Hanks, brother of Tom Hanks, who starred in Turner & Hooch.

Jon Sandys

The only three who never appeared on Scrubs are Charlie Sheen (Charlie), Connie Britton (Nikki), and Victoria Dillard (Janelle).

My Big Brother - S2-E6

I think it's this episode when Dr Cox refers to one patient as a "G.O.M.E.R." This is an actual medical term which stands for "get outa' my emergency room."

My Unicorn - S4-E11

The father needing a kidney and the son trying to sell him his in this episode are played by real life father and son John Bennet Perry and Matthew Perry.

My Brother, Where Art Thou? - S3-E5

When we see the inside of Ted's office there is a keyboard but no monitor or computer. Probably to show Ted has no importance in the hospital.

My Unicorn - S4-E11

The scene in which Matthew Perry chases JD with a remote control plane is a play on the famous Alfred Hitchcock movie North by Northwest, in which Cary Grant is chased through a field by a biplane.

Ted's band that recurs throughout the show is a real band called "The Blanks"
