NBC.com is launching a special contest asking Scrubs
viewers to choose the name and sex of Turk (Donald Faison
) and Carla’s (Judy Reyes
) baby. Starting March 28 until the series' May finale, viewers will be able to submit their suggested baby name online.
One winner will be randomly chosen to have a “Scrubs” character named after him or her. Plus, 10 randomly selected runners-up will receive surprise “Scrubs” items from the show. The winner and 10 runners-up, along with the baby’s name and sex, will be announced at a later date.
In the March 28 episode, “My Bright Idea,” Turk accidentally learns that Carla is pregnant before she does, so J.D. convinces Turk to tell the entire hospital staff so they can all surprise Carla with the joyous news. But when Carla confides to Turk that she can’t wait for the day when she can personally share her baby news with the world, Turk and J.D. have to quickly figure out how to contain hospital gossip until Carla can make the discovery on her own. Meanwhile, J.D. tricks the Janitor into swallowing a tiny GPS tacking device. Later, when Elliott puts Dr. Cox into an embarrassing situation, he decides to get even with Elliott through Keith and Carla.
