Taking a page from the "Buffy" playbook, "Scrubs" is staging a full-blown musical episode this season, according to reports.

The show, which stars Zach Braff, has hired the songwriters behind the fractured Broadway musical "Avenue Q," to write the music, according to TV Guide.

"We can obviously help with the lyrics," series creator Bill Lawrence told the magazine. "But we needed somebody to not only write incredibly well-produced musical quality numbers, but also [make it] funny."

The episode won't be a complete fantasy, he said.

"We're using an actual medical case," Lawrence says. "We found one of a woman who had an aneurysm and [started] seeing everything as a musical."

No air date set yet.
