    20 Episodes Of "Scrubs" That Remind Us It's The Frickin' Best Show Of All Time

    I'm no Superman.

    Wanna feel old? Scrubs, one of the best frickin' shows of our time, is officially turning 20 this year.

    In 2001, the goofy medical dramedy would drop its pilot episode and bless us with J.D.'s bonkers fantasy sequences, his love for his Sacred Heart family, and his whirlwind romances. (We always knew he would end up with Elliot, though!)

    J.D. as deer in headlights

    In every half-hour episode, the series managed to blend drama, heart, and humor in one go, and we'll truly never be over it, even two decades later! To celebrate Scrubs' turning the big 2-0, let's revisit 20 of its best episodes:
