Another user, rohirrim_of_rohan, quoted, “He wasn't about to die, was he newbie? Could've waited another month for a kidney.” By this line, I have tears falling uncontrollably down my face.”

Redditor ksm59 stated, “It's Ted's band singing ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow' for me.” 

“My Way Home” pays tribute to the iconic film The Wizard of Oz. J.D. (Zach Braff) comes in on his day off and can't escape before Turk (Donald Faison) and Elliot(Sarah Chalke) needs his help with separate issues. 

Ted's (Sam Lloyd) band sings “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” while the screen shows both Elliot and Turk resolving their issues after taking J.D.'s advice.

In “My Life in Four Cameras,” J.D. is dating Kylie (Chrystee Pharris), and Carla (Judy Reyes) is jealous of how cute their new relationship is, so she becomes romantically competitive. 

Turk is freaked out but also not picking up on the hints. So when J.D. allows Kylie to beat him at arm wrestling, Turk slams Carla's arm down and screams, 

“DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU GET, CARLA?! DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU MESS WITH THE WARRIOR?!”

Another Redditor, RoisinDubh999, quoted, “So?! Did the girl make it? Did she get her liver in time? Is that how it really ended? Let's just say that's the way I'm telling it.”

That's a direct quote from “The Princess.”  The episode follows Dr. Cox after a brutal day at work. He tells his son a bedtime fairy tale based on events at the hospital that day, and Jordan listens. Jordan (Christa Miller) is the one who poses the question.

And the number one answer for best moments in Scrubs comes from Guyver1-. He quoted J.D. talking to Dr. Cox after losing three patients in “My Fallen Idol.” 

“I guess after all this time, I still think of you as like this superhero that'll help me out of any situation I'm in; I needed that. But that's my problem, you know, and I'll deal with that.

I guess I came over here to tell you how proud of you I am, not because you did the best you could for those patients, but because after 20 years of being a doctor, when things go badly, you still take it this hard. And I gotta tell you, man, I mean, that's the kind of doctor I want to be.”
