Scrubs Wiki

Franklyn is a lab tech at Sacred Heart Hospital.


While having a terrible day, Dr. Cox destroys Franklyn's lab in a fit of rage. He pays for the damages later when he is in a better mood. ("My Heavy Meddle"). Later that year, when J.D. is trying to find an error in Ben Sullivan's paperwork, he asks Franklyn, who claims to be too busy to help. J.D. asks Elliot to cry in front of Franklyn, who then decides to help. ("My Occurrence")

The next year, Janitor uses a crossword puzzle to trick J.D. into saying an offensive racial slur about Asians with Franklyn around. ("My T.C.W.")

When Elliot feels discriminated around Sacred Heart for being a woman, she tries flirting with Franklyn to get him to process her patient's urine samples first. ("My Unicorn")
