15. Throughout most of the series’ run, the opening credit sequence only featured one credit, “Created by Bill Lawrence.” However, earlier in the run (season 2), they tinkered with the idea of an opening theme that crammed in all the actor’s names. It was quickly scuttled for time, however. You can see it (as well as all of Scrubs credit sequences) below.
16. In the scene below from Scrubs, the stunt people who do the bungee jump for J.D. and Elliot actually met on set that day. They are now married.
17. The series has three medical advisors: Dr. Jonathan Doris, Dr. Jon Turk and Dr. Dolly Klock. They were the inspirations behind J.D, Turk, and Heather Graham’s character, Dr. Molly Clock.
Jonathan Doris is the doctor you can see briefly in this clip, who J.D. says goodbye to in The Finale.
18. Colonel Doctor, Doctor Beardface, and Snoop Dogg Intern all started out as Extras on Scrubs, and got their character names based on how they were referred to by the cast and crew in the extras pool.
19. John C. McGinley often refers to J.D. by a girl’s name (Lily, Ginger, Shirley, Gidget, Marcia, Gloria, Janice, Betsy, Carol, Toto, Nancy, Brittany), which is how he also jokingly refers to his close friend, John Cusack. The two worked together on the set of Fat Man and Little Boy.
20. I always feel a little guilty about bringing this up, but the actor who plays Hooch, Phill Lewis, really is crazy. I mean, kind of. Better known for his role in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Lewis was convicted of manslaughter in 1991 for killing another woman in a drunk-driving accident. He did serve some prison time.
