Today – on this lovely Boxing Day – you may already be deep in thought, absentmindedly watching the Test while devouring leftovers and daring to reflect on yet another year of your life gone. Well, not to make you feel even older or anything but Scrubs faves Zach Braff and on-screen best pal/IRL best pal Donald Faison celebrated Christmas together.
J.D. and Turk, alongside their brilliant co-stars, made us laugh for nine whole years before the show wrapped up back in 2010. But, as the pair like to share on social media, they’re still as close as ever, eight years on.
Most recently, Braff posted a piccie from his Christmas festivities with Faison.
Also, also, also.

“If we ever do it, we’ll do it as a short little movie or something else,” he continued. “I think the problem from me is I would just want to see where everyone is. I would want to see where their marriages are [as opposed to a huge event].”
This is the only proper way to end the yarn:
