For the love of Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and his technicolor dream coat remember this: you have to give love to get love.Dr. Cox as Linus

For the 2003 Scrubs cast and crew Christmas party, editor Daniel S. Russ and production assistant Ryan Levin wrote, edited, and dubbed the A Charlie Brown Christmas movie with the cast of Scrubs, titled "My Charlie Brown Christmas".


J.D. can't figure out the meaning of Christmas.

J.D. (Charlie Brown) is depressed during the holidays, and can't figure out why. He asks Dr. Cox (Linus) why he feels sad, but he is just met with a bunch of insults. After trying to joke with Laverne (Violet), he meets with Carla (Lucy) for some counseling. After realizing he is never invited to any Christmas get-togethers, she invites him to a staff party and asks him to buy a tree.

He goes tree shopping with Dr. Cox and buys the smallest tree, thinking it is perfect. At the party, Turk (Schroeder) plays Carla a song on the piano as his Christmas gift to her. J.D. arrives with the tree, and Carla yells at him. Dr. Kelso (Violet), Janitor (Shermy), Jordan ("Peppermint Patty"), and Todd (Frieda) insult him, while Ted ("Pig Pen") plans to use the pitiful tree as a comparison to make him look better. They all laugh at him and leave, but Dr. Cox stays and tells him the true meaning of Christmas: that he has to love other people to be loved by other people. J.D. receives the message and invites everyone to his house to decorate the pathetic tree, including God.

I just don't understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting my holiday rectal exam, and sending letter-bomb Christmas cards, and decorating my penis with tinsel, but I'm still not happy.J.D. as Charlie Brown

How about some pity sex, Laverne?J.D. as Charlie Brown

It's Christmas and if you don't get your sorry ass in gear, another holiday will pass and all you'll have to show for it is your name urinated in snow.Carla as Lucy

But I like urinating my name in snow, almost as much as I like touching myself.J.D. as Charlie Brown

I love the holidays. Except, of course, the year when I was nine and my parents got me a Nancy Reagan "Just Say No" poster and I asked what I was saying no to and they said leg warmers, five-figure jobs, and sex with minorities.Elliot as Sally

Tell me something, newbie. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, are you still a dumb-ass?Dr. Cox as Linus

...and God, you're invited too.J.D. as Charlie Brown
