"No scrubs" fez-me lembrar uma canção de uma "girls band" cuja letra começa:
"A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fine
He's also known as a buster
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ***, so"
Scrubs são gajos reles, sem dinheiro e sem sentimentos que se querem aproveitar das mulheres. Em Portugal costumam-se chamar chulos.
