Scrubs

My Lunch - S5-E20

Corrected entry: The donor recipients all crash dramatically after the doctors discover the donor which all the organs came from had rabies. However rabies has a long incubation period, patients take days to die involving seizures and frothing at the mouth before complete organ failure takes place. The deaths of these 3 patients was not the kind of death caused by rabies.

Correction: Organ recipients have to be on immunosuppresants, which would make the rabies take a much, much shorter course.

My Best Friend's Wedding - S3-E22

Corrected entry: Turk and Carla are married by the patient who is also a priest. It is just the three of them in the patient's room. For a wedding ceremony to be legal, at least two witnesses are needed to see the marriage. This is a marriage requirement in most states.

Kinetic14

Correction: California state law for public marriage licenses requires only 1 witness. California state law for confidential marriage licenses does not require any witnesses.

My Finale - S8-E18

Corrected entry: When the Janitor shows J.D. the penny that he allegedly put in the door eight years prior, the penny is stamped with "2006", whereas the penny-in-the-door incident took place in 2001. (00:11:10)

Correction: The Janitor lied to and manipulated J.D. for years, there is no reason to think that the Janitor would have kept and shown J.D. the real penny. It was probably just a coin he had in his pocket.

My Lucky Day - S2-E9

Corrected entry: Early in the episode, Dr. Cox assigns J.D. a patient described as a "whiny, neurotic, sexually repressed mom", but for the rest of the episode, J.D.'s patient is referred to as a male.

Correction: The "whiny, neurotic mom" is Dr Cox's description of JD.

My Old Friend's New Friend - S4-E1

Corrected entry: There is a scene where Carla and Turk have just arrived by cab to the hospital. Turk and J.D. see each other and Carla tells Turk "go ahead" and he runs off leaving Carla standing in front of their luggage. A few seconds later J.D. and Turk run past each other in the hospital in front of Carla, who is now magically wearing scrubs and holding a chart.

Correction: This is to imply that they have been chasing each other around the hospital for a while, missing each other, not quite able to find each other in the same place at the same time. In this span of time they are running around like fools, Carla has already changed for work and is now on shift.

My Old Friend's New Friend - S4-E1

Corrected entry: When JD jumps onto Turk and they yell at each other, you can hear JD say 'Giggle' or something, in a high voice. But his mouth does not move when this is said, plus he is already screaming in delight, so he couldn't have said it.

Correction: He says "eagle", he is not screaming at the time he says it and you can see him say it.

My Day Off - S1-E9

Corrected entry: When J.D. has his appendectomy, Turk is cutting on his left side. The appendix is on the right side of the body. Ironically, J.D. is commenting in the voice-over about what a great surgeon Turk is.

Mark Bernhard

Correction: About one in 10,000 people have 'situs inversus', a total reversal of their organs. In such a case, the appendix would be on the left. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Situs_inversus

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the 23rd episode of season 5, Turk tells JD he hasn't noticed Kim because she wears a wedding ring. He then goes on to cite that she was there during his first day and at Ben's funeral. It then shows clips of these two scenes. In his "first day" scene taken from the pilot episode, Kim is shown between JD and Carla as JD is celebrating, but was absent from this scene in the first episode. During Ben's funeral, Kim is shown sitting behind and between JD and Dr. Cox, which is a seat taken by Carla during the actual scene.

Correction: This is a joke, meant to emphasize his obliviousness. Like many flashbacks and fantasies in the show, it isn't meant to be taken seriously.

My Heavy Meddle - S1-E16

Corrected entry: When Turk, JD, Elliot, and Carla are on the roof throwing things off, they each grab a watermelon. When the camera shows them landing, it's only 3 that hit, and none of them held back.

Correction: That's because one of the watermelons (Carla's) landed out of the framing of the shot.

Guy

My Way Home - S5-E7

Corrected entry: In the scene where Turk fantasizes about being a bad father, he knocks over babies and they fall like dominoes. You can see that the cribs are taped down onto the floor; it helps them fall neatly.

Correction: It's a fantasy, and anything can happen in his imagination.

My House - S6-E4

Corrected entry: During the scenes where the Janitor is shown shooting paint balls at JD, the hopper remains filled with red paint balls after he shoots.

Correction: The paintballs in the hopper would only go down when the gun is cocked. The janitor only shoots one shot at a time.

Guy

My Old Lady - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where JD plays Death in connect four, Death wins with a diagonal connect four. There were 6 black pieces and 8 red pieces. Based on normal connect four rules, no matter who starts the game, the game will always end with the same number used for each color.

Correction: This was JD's fantasy/dream. He could have any amount of one color and it wouldn't matter, since it was his dream to make it any way he saw fit.

My Last Chance - S4-E8

Corrected entry: As JD gets on his scooter to go see Molly, he makes an action as if the bike has a kick start, but when the bike falls over after he runs into the wall, there is no kick start. That model bike has an electric start, although JD might like to make it look like his has one.

Correction: You correct your own mistake, he just mimics kick starting the scooter.

My Clean Break - S3-E11

Corrected entry: JD asks Elliot how she manages her good looks. She then has a flashback that starts with her alarm clock buzzing at 5:00. When she presses the button for the alarm to stop, we can see another time (9:35) - the alarm setting time. The time was 5:00, but the alarm was set for 9:35, so there was no way it was going to buzz at 5:00.

Correction: My alarm has settings for two different times so if one person gets up before the other they flip a switch & the alarm wont go off again until the second time it was set for.

My Malpractice Decision (aka My MalPractical Decision) - S4-E9

Corrected entry: When JD and Elliot put Doug in the quarantine bag, they throw him towards a wall which has no windows, yet he smashes through one and lands in the parking lot.

Correction: This scene takes place in J.D.'s imagination. Anything is posible.

My Two Dads - S1-E5

Corrected entry: In the scene at the golf-course Dr.Cox is talking to J.D and in the background there is a person visible for a short while behind the large tree in the background. There aren't any other people there and the person does not appear to play golf. (00:13:55)

Correction: Many golf courses contain public rights of way, making it entirely possible for a non-golfer to be there. Without evidence that this is a member of the crew, the presence of somebody else in the background cannot be considered unreasonable.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Keith, Lisa, Rex and a few others were JDs interns at the start of season five. Then once Keith starts to date Elliot, they suddenly become Elliot's interns. The interns Elliot had earlier in the season just disappear.

Correction: The interns just switched attendings. Whilst Turk's been at Sacred Heart he's had numerous attendings.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The janitor's lines are often unplanned, with the script simply saying, "Janitor says something".

Correction: Incorrect. The Janitor has lines, but often does variations of them. As evident by the fact that his co-stars always manage to have suitable responses.

Show generally

Corrected entry: At one point, it is revealed that the Janitor's name in the show is Neil Flynn (the actor's name), and J.D. sees him in a bit part he played in the Harrison Ford movie "The Fugitive." So, in essence, while everyone else are fictional characters, Neil Flynn is playing himself - as a sadistic janitor.

Rooster of Doom

Correction: The Janitor's name is never actually revealed; Neil Flynn's real-life past was used to give his character some depth, but the latter remains known to all and sundry only as 'Janitor'.

My Lucky Night - S3-E4

Corrected entry: You can see the double set of skid marks where they had to shoot the skid stop twice. (00:19:00)

bytemyshineymetalass

Correction: This kind of 'mistake' has been corrected for dozens of films and tv shows. The road is heavily used by all sorts of vehicles. The skid marks are perfectly natural.
