Scrubs (2001-2010)

Scrubs (2001-2010)

A person doesn’t have to be perfect to be exactly what you need. TV show too.

U moru bolničkih (melo)drama koje sebe shvataju previše ozbiljno, iako za to nemaju naročitu zaleđinu, Bil Lorens je stvorio nešto drugačije, “Scrubs”, urnebesni sitkom koji preuzima najbolje iz oba žanra, smeštajući “Friends” tip sitkoma u bolničko okruženje. “Scrubs” jeste sitkom, sa svim odlikama sitkoma, ali je i mnogo više od toga.

Pored odlika zajedničkih svim serijama ovog tipa, ekipa “Scrubs” se potrudila da izađe iz šablona i u žanr unese mnoge inovacije i elemente netipične za sitkom. Najzastupljeniji su unutrašnji monolozi, koji pomažu da mnogo bolje upoznamo i razumemo likove. Slede slepstik gegovi, koji često zalaze u ekstreme, te serija koristi i kaskadere. A kako je naš glavni junak sklon šta bi bilo kad bi bilo sanjarenju na javi, mnoge epizode imaju i nadrealne scene, koje neretko zahtevaju specijalne efekte.

“Scrubs” nije snimana u studiju, već su zakupili čitavu napuštenu bolnicu i cela ekipa je maltene živela u njoj, te su tokom niza godina postali neka vrsta velike porodice, i to se u seriji baš oseća i čini je uverljivijom i prirodnijom.

Glavni lik serije “Scrubs” je Džon Dorian (Zak Braf), mladi doktor, nezreo, smotan i pogubljen, sa izraženom emotivnom stranom i još izraženijim baksuzlukom, naročito u ljubavi.

Protivtežu mu drži najbolji prijatelj i cimer još od koledža, hirurg Kristofer Turk (Donald Faison), sportski tip, samopouzdan, ali emotivno zatvoren. Njihova bromansa je okosnica serije i jedna je od najboljih sa kojima sam se susreo na televiziji.

Chris Turk: Babe, you gotta understand. A guy will sleep with any woman he finds attractive, no matter how he feels about her. If Tyra Banks drove her car over my mom and then offered to have sex with me, I’d have to dial 911 in the nude because my pants would already be off!

Carla: Nice, while your mother lays there dying.

Chris Turk to J.D.: Tell her.

J.D.: His mother doesn’t die. Tyra uses he connections in the super model world to get Turk’s mom’s brain put into Heidi Klum’s body. She falls in love with me, and we all move in together.

Chris Turk: Because I love my mom.

J.D.: Mm, and I would love her too.

Eliot Rid je razmažena tatina princeza, koja se u bolnici po prvi put susreće sa stvarnim životom i, uz mnoge profesionalne i ljubavne turbulencije, napokon odrasta u doktora i ženu vrednu poštovanja. U nekoliko navrata upada u promašene afere sa Dorianom, koje se redovno ružno završavaju.

Of course I’m holding back, I’m insane you idiot. Remember the other day when you told me I had pit-stains? Well, I have cried every fifteen minutes on the half-hour since you told me that. I am racked with self-doubt, I have panic attacks, I’m claustrophobic, germ-phobic, phobia-phobic. I talk to myself, I talk to my cats, I talk to three separate shrinks about the fact that often my cats responds to me in my mother’s voice and, yesterday, when that stupid, pretty surgical nurse handed you a pair of latex gloves, I almost killed the guy who’s leg I was stitching up, because I couldn’t stop thinking about the two of youhaving sex on a box of steaks. Why a box of steaks? ‘Cos my Dad had an affair with a female butcher and, as I mentioned before, I am insane. There, I opened up, are you happy?

Dr. Elliot Reid

Medicinska sestra Karla Espinoza (Džudi Rajes) je Eliotina prijateljica, Turkova verenica i dežurna ‘radio Mileva’ i ‘draga Saveta’ bolnice “Sacred Heart”.

Carla: You can deny you like her all you want. But, I know for a fact, that every time you guys are done playing racquetball or having a conversation or whatever it is you crazy kids are calling it, you like nothing more than to just lie next to Jordan and watch her sleep.

Dr. Cox: It would be impossible for me to lie next to Jordan. She sleeps hanging from a ramp in the ceiling, wrapped in a cocoon of her own wings.

Doktor Peri Koks, kojeg igra fantastični Džon C. MekGinli (“Platoon”, “Stan Against Evil”) je vrhunski lekar, arogantni, narcisoidni i ekstremno zabavni neprešusni izvor sarkastičnih opaski, Dorianov nezvanični mentor, koji ukrade svaku scenu u kojoj se pojavi.

Loretta, relax. I’ve been involved in every ridiculous TV induced panic there is – poison pills, SARS, West Nile, North Face, South Fork, East River, Monkeypox, pop rocks, toilet snakes, Mad Cow, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, and quite frankly every other flu that you could really only catch if you actually fornicated with the animal it’s named for. And as a parting gift, I will tell you this – narrow it down to two symptoms: vomiting and diarrhea. Cause it’s just not E. Coli unless it’s firing out of both exits.

Dr. Cox

Džordan (Krista Miler) je njegova bivša žena (u stvarnosti žena Bila Lorensa, tvorca serije), snažna, odlučna, beskompromisna, jezika toliko oštrog da je jedini lik u seriji koji je u stanju da ukrade po neku sacenu od Koksa. Njihov love/hate odnos je dublji i snažniji od svih ostalih romansi u “Scrubs”.

Dr. Cox: You’re a wonderful and passionate person, and that’s why I can see myself with you when I’m 70 and you’re 65 and your face is 40 and your boobs are 29.

Jordan: My face will never look 40.

Scrubs

Nil Flin igra domara koji, uz neumorno glancanje bolničkih podova, uvek nađe vremena da proganja i stresira interniste. Uz Koksa, domar je verovatno najzabavniji lik u “Scrubs”.

Carla: Dr. Cox, why is your mouth red?

Dr. Cox: Duct tape, two hours in a morgue drawer, don’t piss off the janitor. End of story.

Sem Lojd igra iskompleksiranog tunjavog bolničkog advokata, uvek na ivici samoubistva, osim kada sa svojom akapela grupom vežba po bolničkim liftovima.

You know, Bob, I’ve been thinking of all the times you manipulated me and toyed with me and I can’t help but recall that children’s fable about that race between the tortoise and the pain-in-the-ass-chief-of-medicine-that-everybody-hates. You see, Bob, the pain-in-the-ass-chief-of-medicine-that-everybody-hates kept running out in front of the tortoise and taunting him, but right at the end…oh, gosh I’m sure you remember what happened, Bob, the tortoise bit clean through the Chief of Medicine’s calf muscle, dragged him to the ground, where he and all the other turtles devoured him alive right there on the racetrack. It’s a disturbing children’s book, Bob, I know, but it’s one that stuck with me nonetheless.

Dr. Cox

Načelnika bolnice, Boba Kelsoa, koga igra Ken Dženkins, zanima samo profit i da ga niko ne smara, ženu tretira kao psa, psa kao ženu, zaljubljen je u svog oldtajmera i sa svojim zlobnim i/ili hladnokrvnim replikama predstavlja neku vrstu glavnog negativca.

She likes to joke that I choked the last breath of life out of her long ago, and now she’s just a shell of a woman. I think that’s cute… I called her Shelley. You know, when I call her that, sometimes she laughs so hard she cries.

Dr. Kelso

Turkov kolega, hirurg Tod (Robert Maćio), je seksualno opterećeni latentni gej, opsednut “high-five” pozdravima, kojima stalno izmišlja nove podvarijante, dok pokušava da se uvuče pod svaku suknju koju ugleda i sipa bezobrazne šale.

I have to go. There’s a breast reduction on the fourth floor, I’m gonna go try and stop it.

Todd

Pored glavne četvorke, koju čine Dorian, Turk, Eliot i Karla, i stalnih “sporednih likova”, od kojih sam pomenuo najbitnije, kroz “Scrubs” defiluje i popriličan broj gostujućih likova, neki samo na epizodu ili dve, dok se drugi duže zadržavaju ili pak povremeno vraćaju u seriju. Ni ovi likovi ni malo ne zaostaju za glavnim svojom karakterizacijom i performansima, a neke igraju prilično jaka imena, kao što su Elizabet Benks, Tara Rid, Heder Graham, Heder Loklir, Majkl J. Foks, Dejvid Koperfild, Rajan Rejnolds, Dik Van Dajk, Metju Peri, Kolin Farel, Kristofer Meloni i drugi.

Karakterizacija svih, čak i najsporednijih likova, je fantastična i već nakon nekoliko epizoda stičete utisak da ih lično poznajete, a nakon nekoliko sezona postaće vam kao rod najrođeniji. Vrlo su raznovrsni i pokrivaju sve tipove karaktera, često dovedene do karikature. Što nas dovodi do humora.

If that continues, you will be dead. And I’m not talking about the “Oh, my God, if I don’t get invited to the prom, I’m going to die” type of dead, I’m talking DEAD dead. Is that clear enough for you? Because if it’s not, I could of course text you on my Blackberry or my Blueberry or my Chuck Berry… although technically Chuck Berry is a blackberry… the point is, you gotta stop wasting everyone’s time and grow up. Is that clear to you, sweetheart?

Dr. Cox to a teen who has stopped taking her epilepsy medication

Serija je izuzetno inteligentno i duhovito napisana, i koristi sve vrste humora, od naivnog dečijeg, romantičnog i drugarskog, preko slepstika i komedije situacije, do zlobne ironije i sarkazma, pa čak i prilično morbidnog crnog humora. Ne mogu da se setim kada je tačno politička korektnost postala osnovni i najmoćniji princip moderne televizije i zasrala sve što se zasrati može, potpuno ubivši duh zdravog humora, ali ovde toga nema ni u tragovima. Štaviše, primetio sam par momenata koji se sprdaju sa PC normama.

I don’t know. Is it sexist to hold the door for a woman? Is it sexist to keep the attractive nurses and let go of a few ugos? The rules are changing so fast I just can’t keep up.

Dr. Kelso

Iako je serija potrajala čitavu prvu deceniju novog milenijuma, inspiracije i tema im nije ponestalo. Ne može ni da zafali kad se ne ustručavaju ni od čega, i nemilosrdno i besramno se sprdaju na sve teme koje im padnu napamet, pa čak i na one od kojih se većina sličnih serija sklanjaju ko đavo of krsta. Mada ne mogu da se setim ni jedne stvarno slične, osim možda donekle “Ally McBeal“).

“Scrubs” vešto kombinuje sve žanrove u neku svoju podvrstu sitkoma, novu, originalnu i osvežavajuću, i radi to jako dobro, što potvrđuje i trajanje od devet sezona. Počeo sam verovatno dvestotinak serija, do kraja pogledao možda pedesetak, a retko koju sam makar i parcijalno reprizirao. “Scrubs” gledam već treći put, od početka do kraja.

10/10

Doug: Hey, Klaus, I got a question for you: why is it in your country that Hamburg and Frankfurt have nothing to do with hamburgers and hot dogs?

Janitor: Why is your lake Titicaca not filled with boobs and poop?

Elliot: Oh, Dr. Cox, does this lipstick make me look like a clown?

Dr. Cox: No, Barbie, no… it makes you look like a prostitute who catters exclusively TO clowns.

You’ll fart, poop, pee, and scream, all in front of ten complete strangers, all of whom are staring intently at your vagina, which, by the ay, has an 80 percent chance of tearing.

J.D. to pregnant woman

Well, gosh, I guess I became a doctor because ever since I was a little boy, I just wanted to help people. I don’t tell this story often, but I remember when I was seven years old, one time I found a bird that had fallen out of its nest, and so I picked him up and I brought him home, and I made him a house out of an empty shoebox. [starts laughing] I became a doctor for the same reasons that everybody does – chicks, money, power and chicks.

Dr. Cox

You’d better go ahead and enjoy this while you can, Bob, because if your evil genie goes ahead and grants your wish and I’m gone forever, then the only one you’re going to be able to contend with around here is yourself. And when you really get to know THAT person, oh, dear God, you’ll scream so loud that Satan will want to tear up that contract he made with you at birth just so he can get some sleep.

Dr. Cox

Is that a cat being gutted by a fishing knife? No! That’s my son. He’s hungry and he’s got a load in his pants so big I’m actually considering hiring a stable boy.

Dr. Cox

Dr. Kelso: Hey, Ace, your TTP patient coded, I pronounced it.

J.D.: He died?

Dr. Kelso: I certainly hope so, otherwise that autopsy is going to be a bitch.

So what you’re saying is you have a problem that is totally your problem, but you’d like to find a way to make that problem my problem, but here’s the problem, newbie, it ain’t my problem.
