About This Quiz

When "Scrubs" showed up in 2001, it was so different from any other show that had aired on television. Sure, we'd seen medical dramas before, even medical comedies like "M*A*S*H*," but the character dynamic on "Scrubs," the surreal fantasy sequences and the surprisingly real relationships, made it a true standout. How many shows will take you through eight seasons without revealing the name of a central character, other than referring to him as "Janitor"? Scrubs committed to their bits, and they had an extraordinary commitment to its characters.

From the near-eternal optimism of JD (and his strange fantasies) to the baffling habit Elliot had of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, it's hard not to love the cast of this show. Who hasn't felt the competitive spirit of Turk or lost their patience, like Carla, every once in a while? That's why the show worked so well! Everyone had a distinct "something" about them, but, just like real people, they were also never limited to that one characteristic. JD became a responsible adult, Elliot gained her confidence, Carla was able to mellow out, and Turk became more compassionate and understanding. And now it's time to see whose scrubs fit you best. Take the quiz and see which character you are!
