I don't usually watch the show, "Scrubs," but today I made an exception and tuned in for a little bit. During one episode, a woman was remarking on a rooftop beach how death had been a motivator in her life. She said, "It forced me in the 8th grade to ask Peter Petrelli to the sock hop."
"Heroes" has become one of my favorite shows, if not #1. And whenever I hear the name of a character I like, which is pretty much all of them, I think, "Awesome!" It's like randomly hearing the sound of an electric guitar and being blindsided by the sudden and brilliant Force of Cool!
Almost as soon as I heard the woman say "Peter Petrelli," I thought, "Did I hear her correctly?" I had to check the net. Surely there must have been other reports from people who made the same connection.
After a little while, I came upon a search query that gave me what I was looking for. Yes, other people caught the quote, and they were just as surprised as I.
In all honesty, one of the first places my mind went upon hearing his name on "Scrubs" was to a theory about his time travel ability coinciding with the power to phase from one dimension to the next. That way, he could move from the "Heroes" universe, to the "Scrubs" universe… to our universe!
