It’s unclear if Chalke will be portraying a medical professional or a patient, although conventional wisdom suggests it’s the latter since her stint is only for one episode.

Chalke’s installment is slated to air in the spring, which, coincidentally, is when her new ABC sitcom is set to debut; the Chalke-fronted How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) premieres Wednesday, April 3.

  • I thought Scrubs had a beef with Greys.
    Since Greys kind of sold the concept from Scrubs.
    There were a few references to that in a couple of episodes of Scrubs.
    Clearly a promotional tool for here new show.

      • Comedy wise Scrubs was better.
        Drama wise Greys is better.
        Hey I love them both.

      • If anything Grey’s copied Chicago Hope. Both are dramas, both are about the surgical wing of a hospital. Both did a fairly similar musical episode, in that both had hallucinating doctors in life threatening situations. Both have doctors who lives in the wilderness. It’s actually quite interesting how much CH and GA are alike.

      • I loved that comment when JD said that!! I am both a Scrubs and Grey’s fan. I love that Sarah will be in one episode!

    • I don’t think Grey’s copied Scrubs, every medical show I say would be more of a copy of ER, the pioneer of a medical show.

  • Actually thought it was a joke on Scrubs part when they did that. If I recall JD said it was like the stole their lives but he said it in an appreciative way.

  • Scrubs was produced by ABC Studios (hence ABC network’s perpetual threat to pick the show up every time NBC threatened to cancel it), so I think that Chalke should guest star as Dr. Elliot Reed. She and Meredith could compare notes about their overbearing mothers.

  • I hope Sarah is an ex-doctor turned patient, would be a neat way to fit in some Scrubs references :)
