U.S. Route 22

U. S. Route 22 is a west–east route and is one of the original United States highways of 1926, running from Cincinnati, Ohio, at US 27, US 42, US 127, US 52 to Newark, New Jersey, at U. S. Route 1/9 in the Newark Airport Interchange. US 22 is named the "William Penn Highway" throughout most of Pennsylvania. In southwest Ohio, it overlaps with State Route 3 and is familiarly known as the 3C Highway, "22 and 3", Montgomery Road. A section of US 22 in Pennsylvania between New Alexandria at U. S. Route 119 and Harrisburg at Interstate 81 has been designated a part of Corridor M of the Appalachian Development Highway System. US 22 has its westernmost end-point in downtown Cincinnati—however, its eastbound and westbound end-points are not at the same intersection. US 22 Eastbound begins on Central Avenue at 5th Street proceeds north, turning east onto 7th Street. Meanwhile, US 22 Westbound follows 9th Street and ends at Central Avenue. From downtown Cincinnati to Washington Court House, US 22 follows the historic 3C Highway which connected Cincinnati and Cleveland.

This section is concurrent with State Route 3. At Washington Court House, SR 3 and US 22 diverge. US 22 continues to the east through Circleville to Lancaster. From Lancaster to Zanesville, US 22 follows the route of Zane's Trace, an early pioneer road blazed by Colonel Ebenezer Zane beginning in 1796. Starting just west of Cadiz, US 22 becomes a limited-access expressway for the remainder of its 30-some miles in Ohio as it approaches and enters the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, it junctions with State Route 7 for a mile along the Ohio River shoreline in Steubenville. Known as the Robert C. Byrd Expressway, the expressway route that began 30 miles to the west near Cadiz, Ohio continues for five miles within the state of West Virginia as it approaches more population density within the Pittsburgh metro area. US 22 travels through or borders the city of Weirton for its entire length in West Virginia, from the Ohio state line over the Ohio River, to the Pennsylvania state line. US 22 enters Pennsylvania as a limited-access highway connecting Weirton, West Virginia, Steubenville, with Pittsburgh.

Through much of the Pittsburgh area, it multiplexes with Interstate 376 and US 30. US 30 merges with US 22 near Imperial and Pittsburgh International Airport, both highways merge with Interstate 376 in Robinson Township. Together, these three highways form a limited-access multiplex through the city of Pittsburgh. US 30 splits from Interstate 376 and US 22 in Wilkinsburg, the I-376/US 22 concurrency continues to the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Monroeville, where I-376 ends. East of Interstate 376, US 22 continues east as a primary arterial highway between Pittsburgh and major population centers in central Pennsylvania, such as Johnstown, State College, Huntingdon and Lewistown; the entire length between Pittsburgh and US 220 and Interstate 99 just west of Altoona was widened to at least four lanes by summer 2011. US 22 in eastern Pennsylvania is a four lane limited-access expressway between Easton and Interstate 78 to the west; the original designation for this expressway was to be Interstate 78, but local opposition to a freeway in Phillipsburg, along with substandard conditions at Easton, forced federal highway officials to relocate Interstate 78 south of Allentown, Bethlehem and Phillipsburg.

U. S. 22 crosses the Delaware River on the Easton–Phillipsburg Toll Bridge. US 22 between eight miles east of Interstate 81 to Allentown is concurrent with Interstate 78. Former highway alignments of US 22 that parallel this section are collectively known as the "Hex Highway", so called because of the Berks County-based Pennsylvania Dutch families that hang hex signs on their barns. U. S. Route 22 in New Jersey predates, was replaced by, Interstate 78 as it was built between 1956 and 1989, shares designation with I-78 from exit 3 to exit 18. US 22 was an expressway in some segments, including the area around Clinton, it connects Phillipsburg with Newark in New Jersey. US 22 has one major interchange besides I-78, that being Interstate 287, although it is not a full interchange, with two missing movements: US 22 eastbound to I-287 northbound and I-287 southbound to US 22 westbound. One of two level crossing of the highway happens in Union County in the Union Township section of the highway, it once belonged to the Rahway Valley Railroad.

US 22 is one of the original U. S. Routes, though in the 1925 plan it was to terminate in Cleveland, entering Ohio on modern U. S. Route 422. In the finalized 1926 plan, it followed the current course to U. S. Route 40. In 1932, it had been extended to Cincinnati as it is replacing Ohio State Route 10 and following preexisting State Route 3. Before the Byrd Expressway, West Virginia's segment of U. S. 22 ran from Pennsylvania Avenue at the PA/WV state line to Main St. left on Main St. through downtown Weirton, right on Freedom Way to the Fort Steuben Bridge and Ohio River to Steubenville, Ohio. An "Alternate U. S. 22" route ran along Cove Road from Pennsylvania Avenue to the intersection of Ha

My Princess

"My Princess" is the season seven finale and the 150th episode of the American sitcom Scrubs. It was broadcast on May 8, 2008 on NBC. Although produced as episode 9, the episode was rearranged to be the season finale due to the season being cut short because of the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. Dr. Kelso, to try to prevent the staff from making mistakes due to tiredness that will make the hospital liable and open for lawsuits, says that anyone caught working past their shifts will be suspended. Dr. Cox recounts this tough day at the hospital to his son through an imaginative fairy tale; when Princess Elliot's handmaiden, i.e. one of Elliot Reid's patients, falls ill at the hands of an unknown monster, the Princess summons the Village Idiot, J. D. to help rescue her. But with the Dark Lord Oslek standing in their way, the duo can't do it alone; the Giant keeps an eye out for the heroes while the two-headed Turla, a combination of Turk and Carla, lends some magic, but it's the brave knight in shining armor that lends them the knowledge that may save the day.

However, with Dr. Kelso's new rules, the staff of Sacred Heart may not have time to figure out how to slay the monster. In the end, J. D. concludes the woman needs a new liver. Dr. Cox tells his son that the maiden lived, but when he exits the room Jordan asks him whether or not she survived, he suggests that she didn't, saying, "that's the way I'm telling it." After saying in an earlier episode that he has stress-induced dyslexia, Ted refers to Dr. Kelso as Dr. Oslek, the name Dr. Cox gives the Dark Lord; when Boon and Debbie are playing "Diagnosis Jeopardy", you can hear Boon call her "Slaggy", referencing the episode, "His Story IV", when Dr. Kelso decides to call her "Slagathor". In an earlier episode Dr. Kelso retires from his position of Chief of Medicine, but in "My Princess" he still holds the position. "My Princess" concluded the seventh season of Scrubs on NBC. Directed by series star Zach Braff, the episode is a homage to The Princess Bride, features costumes and location work, including horses and a castle.

According to set dresser Patrick Bolton, the village design itself was a homage to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The village features. Series creator Bill Lawrence describes the episode as a personal effort for the cast and crew, comparable to earlier themed episodes such as "My Musical" and "My Life in Four Cameras". According to Lawrence, "Even now, after seven years, we try to do one show that we spend way too much money and time on... We're just making ourselves happy." Braff describes the episode as both the most epic, the most expensive episode so far, saying it includes "monsters, evil wizards, hunchbacks, gnomes – like World of Warcraft, but Scrubs."A teaser for the episode posted on NBC's website featured Ted Buckland dressed as a hunchback eating a squirrel. This episode was broadcast in Ireland on May 1, 2008, one week ahead of the scheduled premiere in the United States; the error occurred due to the Irish network broadcasting Scrubs based on the production order, under which "My Princess" was episode nine of season seven, rather than the final air order under which "My Dumb Luck" was ninth and "My Princess" was bumped to the 11th slot.

This affects the continuity of the show, because Dr. Kelso is still Chief of Medicine in this episode. Village Idiot – J. D.
