Thursday night TV was rather disappointing. Everything was re-runs. Scrubs was really odd. JD realizes that the janitor guy (Neil Flynn) used to be an actor before a janitor. He had a higher ambition -- something with which JD could relate. He recognizes him in the movie, The Fugitive.
The really odd thing is that Neil Flynn really is the transit cop in The Fugitive. I wasn't paying close attention to the segment of The Fugitive that they played, so I had to look it up on IMDB. Plot-wise, I doubt it is significant, but it's still an odd twist in "show reality", and I don't recall seeing anything like that done in other shows.
