  • When Bobby starts to brood about being the spare wheel amid all the couples, the Crew go out to party - stag-style.

    Wasn't at all sure about Cougar Town when it started, but Bill Lawrence has done the impossible - and stepped up a gear as a comedy writer. No mean feat for the man who gave us Scrubs and Spin City.

    This episode (which I think is the season finale), centres on how the gang will tell Jules's ex, Bobby, that she's now hooked up with Grayson. Meantime, 18-year-old Travis gets a few practical lessons in handling that crazy streak all women keep hidden until it's too late for us. The situations are both handled with a very deft, funny touch; no over-the-top gags, no toilet humor - just classy, timeless gentle comedy.

    To contrast briefly, I caught what will be my last episode of Two and a Half Men earlier in the week, where the "highpoint" of the show was a father accidentally defecating in his trousers as he farted for his son (a joke much better told by Lawrence on Scrubs eight years ago). So it was refreshing to watch Cougar Town last night and see that there is still at least one truly great US comedy writer working today.moreless
  • absolutely phenomenal season finale!

    I really enjoyed the ending to the first season of Cougar Town! This was ean episode which was graeat, particularly with Travis learning how to deal with an angry Kylie!

    The plan to tell Boobby that thhey (Jules and Grayson) aere dating was a great one, bu t I have to admit, that head was a little freaky!

    Definitely an episdode that I willl remember. Would've liked for some sort of cliffhanger to leave us on the edge of our seats for the end, but apart from that, i thought that the wepisode was quite flawless.

    Keep it up, Cougar Town, and I can't wait until Season Two! Lovely!moreless
  • Welcome back Courteney Cox.

    Okay, I didn't click with the show instantly. I even stopped watching after two episodes. I wanted to like it so much though because as a die hard Friends fan, anything that can remind me of it is welcome.

    After all the fuss on the web about the show, I decided to give it another try over the summer. And I was so right. After a few episodes you can not but get attached to this amazing cast.

    Their craziness is contagious, the lines are very well written and the humour is so good. There is no weak character (even though I'm not a big fan of the actor who plays Travis) and we can feel the chemistry between all of them.

    Ellie is probably one of the best. And what a pleasure to see Courteney Cox again. She would have deserved an Emmy nomination... and a win.

    I won't miss season 2, for sure. And I hear Jennifer Aniston will be there. Yay!moreless

      Grayson: (Popping a balloon) Happy one millionth customer!!

    • Grayson: Why does it always have to be a plan?
      Jules: These things work better when you have a plan. Vacations, big talks, murders... I don't know why I said murders. It's not like I daydream about getting away with one. THAT would be weird.

    • Jules: Whenever Bobby gets bad news, he bolts. You should've seen me try to deliver the divorce papers. (Flashback shows Jules chasing Bobby down a beach on an ATV)
      Grayson: Where did you get an ATV?
      Jules: From a lifeguard, duhr.
      Grayson: He let you borrow his ATV?
      Jules: What are you, a detective?

    • Grayson: How'd your talk with Bobby go?
      Jules: It didn't. I was kind of thinking that tomorrow we could do it together.
      Grayson: No way in hell. (Jules hits a button on the remote)
      Grayson: (On tape) Jules, in a relationship, you have to do things you don't wanna do. It's part of being a couple. (In person) That's taken out of context!
      Jules: You are so in! (Ellie comes in wearing a wool hat)
      Ellie: Look at me, I'm Grayson!
      Grayson: What is she doing here?
      Jules: Ellie used to be a DJ. And she happened to give you a little remix. (Pushes a button on the remote)
      Grayson: (On tape) Jules, in a relationship, sometimes you have to do things-
      Ellie: Jules, in-your-face dance!
      Jules: I don't know that one.
      Ellie: It's just the running man. (Jules and Ellie start dancing)
      Jules: Grayson, we're not staying here. Get your pjs, we're going to my house.
      Grayson: Stupid relationship! (Leaves the room, Jules and Ellie keep dancing).

    • Grayson: Hey. You're in my house. How much snooping have you done?

      Grayson: Sometimes they look cool.
      Jules: On planet Douchalon.

    • Grayson: Jules, in a relationship-
      Jules: Wait. If you're going to start pontificating about relationships, I'm gonna have to record this on my phone. Cause I guarantee it will come back to bite you in the ass.
      Grayson: Thanks girl. (Into Jules' phone) Jules, in a relationship, sometimes you have to do things you don't wanna do. It's part of being a couple.
      Jules: That is so good!

    • Grayson: Your house is great, but do you think we could ever sleep over at my house?
      Jules: No. Whenever I'm in your bed, I feel like balloons are going to start falling from the ceiling like I'm the millionth customer.
      Grayson: That's cool! I should rig that up.

    • Jules: Travis, about Grayson? Thoughts? Feelings?
      Travis: Whatever. Makes you happy. Hey new Dad, give me twenty bucks, I'll never call you "new Dad" again.
      Grayson: Winner. (Gives Travis $20)
      Travis: Later Mom! I love you, new Dad.
      Grayson: Feels right.

    • Jules: (About her and Grayson's relationship) Alright, obviously this is very big. So let's hear it.
