Zach Braff Remembers Original Scrubs Cast 17 Years After Show Premiered
We all loved Scrubs, the medical comedy series following a group of hapless doctors and nurses at the fictional Sacred Heart Teaching Hospital.
We had BFFs JD and Turk, played by Zach Braff and Donald Faison, JD's neurotic love interest Elliot (Sarah Chalke), Turk's feisty missus Carla (Judy Reyes), the continually pissed-off Dr Cox (John C. McGinley) and the grumpy chief of medicine Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins).
Together they were quite the group of loveable misfits - as actor Zach Braff has reminded us today, marking 17 years since the show first premiered.

D'awwwww. YOU GUYS!
Many of Braff's followers commented to join in the nostalgia, with one saying the show had changed their life forever, adding: "Thank you and the entire team behind the show for all those years full of laughter, tears of joy, tears of sadness but most of all the perhaps best friendship ever on television."
One person even admitted: "And 17 years later I became a MD because of this show. At 25, yesterday was my first day and I felt like JD all the time. Enthusiastic but trying not to look stupid... Thank you ZB and Scrubs for inspiring me. I'll think of this show overtime I treat a patient."
Mind you, some others spotted there was one guy missing from the happy photo:
Yeah, we can't imagine Janitor would be too chuffed about that, either.

Braff clearly loved his days working on the Scrubs set - so much so, in fact, that he even recently said he'd be up for reliving them with a movie.
Earlier this year, he sat down with The IMDb Show and was asked whether he'd prefer to see Scrubs return in TV format or as a movie.
"I had a whole TV movie pitch for [Scrubs creator] Bill Lawrence," he told Tim Kash and Kerri Doherty.
"I can't tell you because it's part of my pitch, but I told him this whole pitch over dinner and he laughed a lot and said, 'We'll see, we'll see'. I think it would be fun to do a two-hour Scrubs movie - I would totally do that."
That all sounds well and good, but sadly Donald Faison pointed out that it would take a lot of commitment from everyone for him to be involved in a TV movie reboot.
Speaking to Page Six, the actor said: "It would have to take everybody to come back to do the reboot.
"Not just the cast, but also the producers and the writers to make it work, in my opinion. So, I'm not saying it's not going to happen, but I'm not saying it is either."
Come on guys, make it happen.
