    Cougar Town hasn't been so great as of late but I'm glad I can finally say that this was a good episode of Cougar Town. Jules wasn't so exaggerated here, and I liked how she acknowledged some of her flaws. Also watching all her friends go against her was kind of entertaining as well. This episode actually displayed some heart which this show has been missing lately.

    We also got a few laughs, mostly coming from Ellie, my favorite line surprisingly was from Jules when she said she "wanted to feel smart" that night, and started to talk about grapes out of nowhere. Travis was also tolerable here as well. This episode reminded us why we're invested in these characters, good episode.moreless

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Bobby: So, ya'll bag on Sam after we left?
      Grayson: What could we possibly say about her? We met her for like two seconds.
      Bobby: Well, that's all you're gonna, because she dumped me. Go ahead.
      Ellie: Bad hair, weird nose, thick neck.
      Grayson: She shook my hand by the fingertips. What are you, the queen of France?
      Laurie: Her face made me want to learn how to box.
      Bobby: Man, there's a lot of love in this room.

    • Grayson: I probably shouldn't have tied you to a tree.
      Andy: Since I'm Cuban, it's possibly a hate crime.

    • Jules: Ellie sees me as the dictator who controls everyone. You have an outside view of the cul-da-sac crew. How do you see us?
      Travis: Well, I see you as a bunch of old people with surprisingly good skin given the amount of wine and sun you take in.
      Jules: Yeah, I think the alcohol preserves us.

    • Laurie: So Beef, why are you hiding your girlfriend from everyone?
      Bobby: Get outta my grill, Bubbles!

    • Laurie: (To Bobby) I love me some beef and bubbles! Ooh! Those should be our detective names. He's Beef, a gristled ex-marine with a secret; he's a vegetarian. She's Bubbles, his plucky, hot partner with a secret of her own; she's Beef's daughter. Together, they fight crime, and each week, maybe they grow a little bit closer together.

    • Grayson: I told you Ellie wouldn't be in the pool shed.
      Jules: That's where she hides from Andy when he wants to have sex. (Later)
      Andy: Ellie's not in the hedge where she hides from the nanny.
      Travis: Ellie hides a lot.

    • Jules: Okay, you can hide anywhere in my, Grayson's, or Ellie and Andy's house. Tom, I didn't include your house because I figured it was creepy.
      Tom: It is.
      Travis: I can see his guest bedroom from my window. He has a mannequin in a cage.

    • Grayson: You know why you're an idiot? One of the reasons? You're still competing with jerks from high school. You won. You got a hot wife, a beautiful son, a good job, those guys are like me. Divorced, struggling through life, peaked at 18.
      Andy: Wow. You're a total loser.
      Grayson: But I got Jules now.
      Andy: Yeah, but you're gonna blow that.

    • Grayson: Put my ice cream away! Go get some pillows and wine and hide from Jules in the truck. I gotta go get Andy because I tied him to a tree. (Leaves)
      Laurie: (To Bobby) Our group is so much fun!

    • Ellie: Can you imagine what it's like to be Andy?
      Grayson: Well he's married to you, so I imagine it must be terrifying.

    • Travis: (Lying between Tom and Ellie in the flatbed during a game of sardines) This sucks.
      Tom: Why aren't you at college?
      Travis: You know what, Tom? I don't know.

    • Grayson: Hey, it's Travis' ironic t-shirt collection. (Holds the "stud" t-shirt up to himself) "I'm moody and sarcastic and I'm home for the tenth straight week because I don't understand how college works."
      Andy: (Puts on Travis' hoodie) I don't have a Travis impression, I just like his hoodie.

    • Travis: Mom, I'm pretty sure Mrs. Torres isn't hiding in that drawer.
      Jules: No, but her sex chopsticks are. Whatever the hell these do.

    • Bobby: You better fix the TV, T-rex, I'm really pumped to see this movie.
      Travis: Waiting for Superman? Really?
      Jules: Bobby, I forgot to tell you, Superman's not in it. It's a documentary.
      Bobby: No!
      Travis: Yep. It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's a depressing expose about the failing public school system.
