Zach Braff reads a Scrubs monologue written by a robot

Posted on

In honor of “Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanza, any other holiday,” Zach Braff wanted to do something nice for Scrubs fans. So he did what any sitcom star would do: He posted a video on Twitter of himself reading the final monologue of a Scrubs episode that was written by a computer.

The monologue starts off sounding rather close to any other Scrubs closing statements: “The truth is every patient suffers from dementia. I’m not going to change all that. After all, the right thing’s not always the best thing to do. You’d know that if you ever worked in a hospital.”

Then things start going a bit off the rails: “What is a hospital?” Braff asks in character as J.D. “A hospital is a lot like a high school: the most amazing man is dying, and you’re the only one who wants to steal stuff from his dad…. And even though it sucks about doctor tapioca, not even that’s sad.”

Doctor tapioca?

A fan was quick to work some editing magic with the faux monologue and played it over actual Scrubs video.

Scrubs aired from 2001-2010. Watch both clips above.
