What did you just do in there? I sure don't see any WEDDING RINGS.Jesus

"My Best Friend's Baby's Baby and My Baby's Baby" is the second episode of Scrubs' sixth season. In this episode, Turk gets upset when Elliot takes up all the roles that he should be doing when helping Carla in labor. J.D. and Kim consider what they should do with their child while Jordan criticizes Dr. Cox for being too adult with Jack.


Turk's frostbitten hand helps keep Carla cool

Carla goes into labor, and when Turk's continual screw-ups such as forgetting her bag and broadcasting a live webcast feed of the birth throughout the hospital, Elliot becomes the temporary caretaker. A scheme to make Turk look like the hero backfires and he becomes stuck in an ice machine. He is freed just as the baby's umbilical cord becomes prolapsed and doctors must perform an emergency C-Section. In the end, Carla gives birth to a healthy Isabella Turk.

Jesus persuades J.D. and Kim not to have an abortion

J.D. and Kim contemplate their future and the future of their unborn child. Their attempts to decide whether to have an abortion or keep the child prove futile. However, after a conversation with Jordan about the time she had an abortion and seeing Turk with his baby, Isabella, they made the decision to go through with the pregnancy and have the child.

"My mummy had an abortion. My mummy had an abortion." - Jack

Meanwhile, Dr. Cox and Jordan argue because of Perry's treating Jack like he is an adult, including telling him the hard-faced truth about alcohol and abortion, rather than shrugging off his innocent questions. Jack is shown dancing and singing "Fatty, fatty, fatty, fatty" while pointing at a fat woman. After the birth of Isabella, Jack asks the oft-posed childhood question "Where do babies come from?" and Perry opts for the more innocent explanation: "When a mommy and daddy are in love, they close their eyes and make a wish."

Recurring Themes


An older J.D. hits on his biological daughter

  • When discussing cons of putting the baby up for adoption, J.D. fantasizes about an older version of himself hitting on a young woman in a bar, not noticing the photo of himself in her locket, the only photo of her birth father.
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of adoption.J.D.

You think if it's a girl, you'd doink her?Kim
I know I will.

  • Laverne objects to J.D. and Kim's option of abortion by placing a small figurine of Jesus on the counter, which comes to life in J.D.'s eyes, and Jesus insists that there should be no abortions. Jesus later chastises them for having pre-marital sex.
  • When J.D. and Kim split up to do some soul-searching, J.D. flashes to his stuffed unicorn Justin, who he goes to when needing to make big decisions.


J.D. and Turk order food for themselves, Carla and the marching band

  • J.D. and Turk stop at a drive thru to buy food for their marching band

Janitor story

Janitor arrives with a handsaw to get Turk out of the ice machine, but it is suggested that he is planning to use the saw to amputate Turk's hand. After being vehemently told this isn't an option, he sits with Turk and talks on the phone to Carla for him - but does Turk no help by slapping him twice and telling him that the baby has a tail. He does help Turk drag the ice machine to the OR.
