MY WAY HOME
SCRUBS CELEBRATES ITS 100th EPISODE WITH AN HOMAGE TO THE WIZARD OF OZ; ZACH BRAFF DIRECTS - J.D. (Zach Braff) is called in to work on his day off and every time he tries to go home, he is pulled into another drama. Turk (Donald Faison) searches for a heart donor to save a dying patient; Carla (Judy Reyes) is worried that she doesn't have the courage to become a parent. Meanwhile, Elliott (Sarah Chalke) doesn't think she has the brains to lead a question and answer session on a subject she knows little about. Meanwhile, the Janitor (Neil Flynn) is trying to make the hospital easier to navigate by painting color-coded lines, including a yellow line, which leads to the exit. John McGinley and Ken Jenkins also star.

MY BRIGHT IDEA
TURK FINDS OUT CARLA IS PREGNANT BEFORE SHE DOES -- Turk (Donald Faison) accidentally learns that Carla (Judy Reyes) is pregnant before she does, so J.D. (Zach Braff) convinces Turk to tell the entire hospital staff so they can all surprise Carla with the joyous news. But when Carla confides to Turk that she can't wait for the day when she can personally share her baby news with the world, Turk and J.D. have to quickly figure out how to contain hospital gossip until Carla can make the discovery on her own. Meanwhile, J.D. tricks the Janitor (Neil Flynn) into swallowing a tiny GPS tacking device. Later, when Elliott (Sarah Chalke) puts Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) into an embarrassing situation, he decides to get even with Eliot through Keith (Travis Schuldt) and Carla.

HIS STORY III
THE JANITOR SABOTAGES J.D.'S VIDEO DIARY FOR HIS MOM -- MARKIE POST ('NIGHT COURT') GUEST-STARS -- After J.D. (Zach Braff) helps Turk (Donald Faison) and Carla (Judy Reyes) turn his old bedroom into a nursery for the baby, he gets the idea to strap a digital camera to his head so his mom can see life through his eyes. But the project is cut short when the Janitor (Neil Flynn) seizes an opportunity to shove J.D. out of the picture for a day. Meanwhile, when mistakes by the interns begin to reflect badly on her, Elliott (Sarah Chalke) cracks the whip on her charges and even resorts to using her mother Lilly (Markie Post, "Night Court") to lean on Keith (Travis Schuldt) for information about his peers. Later, Turk accuses Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) of not being hip. Ken Jenkins also stars.

MY LUNCH
J.D. IS DETERMINED TO HAVE LUNCH WITH DR. COX -- NICOLE SULLIVAN ("MAD TV") GUEST-STARS -- While working to stabilize three patients awaiting organ transplants, J.D. (Zach Braff) resolves to ask Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) to lunch until he agrees. When he finally chases Dr. Cox to lunch, J.D. runs into annoying former patient Jill Tracy (Nicole Sullivan), who unexpectedly teaches him something about responsibility. Later, Elliott (Sarah Chalke) and Carla (Judy Reyes) discover that Todd's been lying about all his hospital "conquests" and suspect that he's been less than truthful about other issues, but Turk warns them not to meddle. Neil Flynn and Ken Jenkins also guest star.

MY FALLEN IDOL
THE STAFF RALLIES AROUND A DESPONDENT DR. COX -- After a decision results in the death of three of his patients, a despondent Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) shirks his duties and turns to drinking. Shocked, the staff does their best to cover for him at the hospital while each takes a turn trying to convince him how inspiring he is. Meanwhile, Turk (Donald Faison) is excited to start his new rotation with orthopedic surgery, but is put off by his attending doctor's touchy-feely methods. So, J.D. (Zach Braff) and the Janitor (Neil Flynn) attempt to help Tuck find ways to bond with his new supervisor. Sarah Chalke, Judy Reyes and Ken Jenkins also guest-star.

MY DEJA VU MY DEJA VU
AS DR. COX RETURNS TO WORK, J.D. REFLECTS ON THE LAST FIVE YEARS -- After five years working at Sacred Heart, J.D. (Zach Braff) can't help but feel that the same things seem to happen over and over again at the hospital. Meanwhile, following his drunken breakdown in the wake of three accidental deaths, Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) returns to work, but Elliott (Sarah Chalke) believes that Cox has lost his usual steely confidence when he hesitates to order immediate treatment for a patient. When her attempt to help him backfires, Elliott calls Dr. Cox on his behavior. Later, Carla (Judy Reyes) gets fed up with Turk (Donald Faison) flaunting everything he can do that she can't, now that she's pregnant. Neil Flynn and Ken Jenkins also star.

"Scrubs" returns in January to NBC for its sixth season. The show is celebrating its second Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. "The 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" will be broadcast on Sunday, August 27 on NBC.
