J.D. and Turk

August.9.2008 at 12:19 am 2 comments

I know I mention the show Scrubs in some of my posts and it’s becoming one of my favorite shows to watch these days. Almost thinking about buying the DVD’s for them ….

Anywho, besides the witty humor, great writing (well the first couple of seasons), and the characters; one aspect of the show I enjoy most is the close (yet odd and funny) friendship that J.D. and Turk have.

They’re “best friends for life” (according to J.D.) and have a long history behind them.

Their personalities are similar, but there’s enough differences between them to balance each other out.

Turk is competitive, has a frat boy nature to him, and basically a man’s man per-se. He’s the typical guy you would know: sports, women, and beer.

Then there’s J.D. … the other half to the “Multi-Ethnic Siamese Doctor”.

He’s not the man’s man you would see: he orders Apple-tini’s — easy on the -tini, a “dork” (as described by Turk), isn’t good at sports (but he does try), and loves to give hugs (or be given hugs).

I think this clip best describes J.D. …..

“J.D. is often shown to have a codependent fixation on Turk, regularly going through steep depression whenever he can’t be with him, and feeling completely lost whenever Turk seems to be spending more time with anyone else.” – Wikipedia

As much as he’s attached to Turk … they’re still able to get along and be best friends. But I think the codependency exists both ways … just more so with J.D. though.

They have their goofy moments where they joke with each other …..

They have the usual bumps in their friendship …..

And then they can still have their serious life conversations (the first couple seconds of the clip) …..

When Nat and Reina were at my apartment last month, Nat was joking that her boyfriend and his close friend were like J.D. and Turk. I laughed a little and was going to say that Nat and Reina were like them too, just the female version.

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. And their friendship signifies it to the tee.

    That bit where they were both wearing their decoder rings shows that Turk can be a dork too. Hehe. I loved the episode called “My Musical” where they sang that song “Guy Love”. Pretty awesome duo.

Quotes Of The Day

- "In the end, every relationship needs maintenance …Whether it’s the smallest gesture …or just picking up back where you left off. The bottom line is that if you care about someone, it’s pretty easy to make the sacrifice."

- J.D. (From Scrubs)
