The Todd Time High-Five!  
I want to talk about "Scrubs". More specifically, The Todd.

So, over the last several months, my household has been doing a rewatch of Scrubs. This is one of those shows that we have seen the majority of episodes through reruns...so like all out of order. So now we are watching them in order.

Now anyone who has spent anytime here at my journal is not the least bit surprised that The Todd is my man - (he is my type, after all). In fact, whenever he does anything especially Todd-like, I like to pump my fist in the air and declare, "That's my man," to which someone in the room usually responds, "Not something to be proud of." (Even though, of course, they all love him too).

The more we watch of Scrubs, the more like The Todd I seem to become (which is saying something, since I am already at least halfway there).


Case in point: The BFF has stopped watching Supernatural. But we convinced her to watch the 1944!episode, because come on, Nick Lea and Jensen Ackles in costume porn, peoples. This conversation occurred when she sat down to watch it.

BFF: Oh, I can't help thinking that watching this episode is going to give me All The Feelings.
Me: It will give you all the feelings...In Your Pants! High-Five! /raised my hand for a high five/
Sister: You know how it pains me to say this, but I agree with The Todd over here. It'll give you all the feelings in your pants.

Then the other day, my sister is talking to me about her car maintenance.

Sister: They will fill up your fluids for you for free if they were the last place to service you. So I can just have them top off my power steering fluid anytime I want.
Me: I know you are still talking about your car, but I'm just over here giggling cuz you said, "service you".
Sister: Yes. I said service you. What kind of a high five would you like, Todd? Service high-five? /she humored me and actually held up her hand for a high-five/

Now on the show, Todd wears his "TheToddTime.com" t-shirt and constantly talks about his website - including one time when he told a patient she could go to his website and see what The Todd would look like with girl parts. Uhhuh. I tried to go to the site today but it is no longer accessible. However, someone on youtube saved the video before the site was taken down. I won't embed it here because, well, I fear some of my Flist may have a phobia to banana hammocks, but if you are so inclined, you may go watch it yourself here.

Also, when I went looking for pics of The Todd, I found a series of images of him totally naked with a doctor's clipboard covering his "area". I'll say it again, that's my man.



That's My Man High-Five!


I am appalled at how few The Todd icons there are out there. I found like three and none of him giving a 'high-five'. However, a not-really-surprising number of places I looked at Scrubs icons, also had Jensen Ackles icons. Including some really pretty ones here,, if you want to take a look.

I keep having dreams about The Todd, but they are really in-depth dreams, with plots and everything - so I'll have to save those for a different day.

I miss Scrubs. This is partly because my TV time is low, and partly because it airs at times I'm not able to predict, and partly because I liked the first couple of seasons best.

I fear that I usually wanted to smack Todd. While giggling, but still. Smackage.

How can you miss Scrubs when it is on - it is on like ten times a day? lol I like the first couple of seasons the best too, when they were all young and fresh-faced. I noticed the other day that a lot of their extra side-characters are the same throughout all the years though - like Todd, Doug, Ted, UPS guy, Snoop-Dog Intern. It's awesome.

I fear that I usually wanted to smack Todd

It's cool, baby. The Todd likes it. High-Five!

1. No TiVO
2. I tend to use TV as background noise rather than search for episodes
3. I'm always happy if I happen to stumble upon it, but I don't go looking.

That's how! :D

The Todd thinks slaps are foreplay. High Five!

Thanks to the Todd I spent a few years of my education with a group of friends that would high five everything. It started as stealing his and then turned into a contest to see what were the weirdest things we could high five over. We watched the first few series in class, which might exsplain why no one did to well in that class, but so worth it lol

When I dabbled in technical theater we 'tested' the sound system by playing the songs from the musical ep over it......when the person in charge walked in to "everything comes down to poo" they weren't impressed....we high fived...

LMAO See, The Todd makes everything better.

contest to see what were the weirdest things we could high five over.

Awesome! I always had had a knack for making things dirty - now I just throw a high-five in at the end there. The other day The BFF was saying that her neck was stiff and I said, "You know what else is stiff? High-Five." She really walked right into that one.

when the person in charge walked in to "everything comes down to poo" they weren't impressed....

Dude, I would have been so impressed. I mean, that's dedication to your job right there. 8)

You know what else is impressive? The size of Todd's...yeah. High-Five!
lizibabeslizibabes on February 13th, 2012 02:57 am (UTC)
Lol I trained as a chef and anytime anything had to be "Beaten until it's stiff" made us all giggle, wish I'd thought to high five it.

Guy love is an awesome Bromance song, 2The only man who's ever been inside of me" Is a high five worthy moment right there lol

I love when the Todd will only make sex jokes to Carla when she takes her ring off..."Have you checked in my pants?"

I'm sure I never noticed the size of The Todd's.....High-five...hands.....big feet...

Oh Scrubs, I miss you. I've mostly seen them out of order, too, but I agree that The Todd is pretty awesome. :P
dodger_sister: scrubsdodger_sister on February 13th, 2012 02:48 am (UTC)
I don't know that I ever watched Scrubs when it was actually on originally - just reruns. It's one of those awesome shows that you can pretty much just come right into the middle of an episode and it is still funny.

I don't know why I am proud of the fact that The Todd is my perfect man, but there it is.

You know what else I'm proud of? The size of Todd's...yeah. High-Five! (that one was kind of lame. Mrs. The Todd is stretching it here).

Scrubs is awesome like that, yeah. And I love how they can have serious episodes which make you cry, and still laugh. Scrubs rules.

*giggle-snort* High Five!

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW.

No, really.

I wish there was an audio recording of the noise I made when I saw this in my inbox. Then I made my sister come in and see it and she was all, "I'm happy for you?"

Cuz...cuz...THAT'S MY MAN!! HIGH-FIVE!!

I have this new icon theme called 'that's my man' where I had my previous The Todd icon and I figured I could rotate it with other guys who inspire the phrase "That's my man" - Officer Billy from Death Valley, Johnny Drama from Entourage, etc.

But nope - now that I have this icon, I doubt I will ever rotate. I think this just got permanent status for life.

You know what I could rotate though? The Todd's...yeah. High-Five! (that either made absolutely no sense or was really, really dirty - lol).

LOL, happy you like it :-D

Oh Scrubs, an island of awesome in a sea of mediocrity. It's one of those shows that if I'm flipping through the channels and come across it I have to stop and watch. The Todd being a highlight of every episode.

Also, your sister and BFF are saints to put up with you channeling The Todd! lol
dodger_sister: that's my mandodger_sister on February 13th, 2012 02:58 am (UTC)
Scrubs just nails it every time. I mean, how does a show stay so funny for so long?

Sometimes, when we are like ten minutes into an episode and Todd hasn't shown up yet, I get really agitated. Like, tense, waiting for him to appear, wondering what awesome thing he'll say/do this time. I think I may have a problem.

My sister and The BFF have been putting up with my Todd-ness for years - now we just have a name for it. lol Sometimes, when Todd does something extra Todd-like, - before I can even say "That's my man," - The BFF will shake her head and say, "it's stupid how perfect he is for you, really."

Channeling? Todd says I can channel him all night long, baby. High-Five! (ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a winner!)
