Reference in Scrubs

  • When there is nothing J.D. can do about a patient, he fantasizes he were The Fonz, who can fix the patient just by hitting him with his fist, like the Fonz fixes the broken record player. ("My Own Personal Jesus")
  • Melody O'Harra walks into the bar and the record plays screeches to a halt. She then fixes it by hitting it with her fist. ("My Turf War")
  • After Laverne has died, her twin sister starts working in the hospital, and her name is Shirley, which is a reference to the Happy Days spinoff Laverne & Shirley.



J.D. as The Fonz.
