WHERE

About

"Where Do You Think We Are?" is a memorable quote uttered in a scene from the American comedy-drama show Scrubs, in which the character Perry Cox discovers that he is at a funeral for his friend Ben Sullivan. Online, the scene has spawned numerous tributes, exploitables and reaction images.

Origin

The original scene comes from Season 3 Episode 14 of Scrubs titled "My Screw Up," originally aired on February 24th, 2004.[1] In the episode, Doctor Perry Cox (played by John C. McGinley) angrily blames John Dorian (played by Zach Braff) for a patient's death before leaving to attend his son's birthday party with his brother-in-law and best friend Ben Sullivan (played by Brendan Fraser). After Cox jokes about attending his son's party, Dorian enters the frame to ask "where do you think we are?", causing Cox to realize he is actually attending Sullivan's funeral. On May 23rd, 2007, YouTuber HaxTbh uploaded a clip of the scene which gathered upwards of two million views and 4,100 comments in the next eight years.



Spread

On December 12th, 2010, a fanart inspired by the scene featuring characters from the comic series The Adventures of Tin Tin was submitted to /r/pics,[4] gaining over 1,200 votes (90% upvoted) prior to being archived (shown below, left). On December 24th, the humor blog Internet And Other Assorted Flavors[2] highlighted several movie poster parody images from the /tv/ (television & film) board on 4chan, including a poster for the 2010 romantic comedy How Do You Know digitally altered with characters from Scrubs episode and the title "Where do you think we are?"

"Oooooooh, okay newbie, you wanna play this game, huh?Remember that time a sitcom was used to point out the real ups and downs of various aspects of the health service, such as Doctor Cox jumping the gun to get those body parts to keep his patients from being on transplant lists for months on end while they slowly lay dying, while not one of the idiots in the morgue has caught the fact that the dead donor did not in fact commit suicde, but died of rabies, because I mean really Janice, who the hell is checking for rabies anyway, since most people with violent or unstable animals refuse to believe that their pwecious babies could ever hurt a fly, and don't bring up that stupid dead dog of yours, because newbie I swear to God, I ruh-huh-heally don't wanna go down that road with you!"
