Cmdr. Wendy B. Lawrence could be mistaken for another plebe on the Naval Academy crew team.

ON MARCH 4, 1973, his North Vietnamese captors told him it was over.For 2,075 days -- scores spent in isolation, roasting inside a windowless, 6-foot box -- he had fought rats off his food and torturers off his back, doing mental and physical push-ups to keep a toe-hold on his sanity. Now he was going home.Within hours, he was aboard an Air Force C-141 full of stunned POWs. When the plane went "feet wet" -- aviation jargon for reaching open seas -- the POWs cheered, cried and hugged. But for William Porter Lawrence, the euphoria was short-lived.

Spending long periods of time in an enclosed space, with no contact with the outside world, can do things to a person. Just ask Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence and star Zach Braff, who have been toiling away at their show - shot at a deserted hospital in the San Fernando Valley - for half a season now, with no one having seen their work. "I think as actors, we were a little bit extra-wacky and silly, and I think the scripts were a little more surreal and crazy," Braff says. Viewers will finally get to see the extra-wacky fruits of their labor when Scrubs begins its fifth season on NBC tonight at 9. The late start stems from the fact that the network opted for only four comedies on its fall schedule, with My Name Is Earl and The Office filling the 9 p.m. Tuesday hour that was Scrubs' primary home the past couple of seasons.
