    Why does everyone hate this show? Seriously, when I went on this website, I was welcomed with a rating of 2.3 on this episode page. This show is really great with heartwarming moments, as was Scrubs. You can really tell this is from the creators of Scrubs when Zach Braff is mentioned all throughout the episode. My only complaint about this episode was some obvious product placement, and why in the world this show is still called "Cougar Town." Maybe that's why this show is getting bad ratings. People are tuning in for a cougar on the prowl, and instead they get a funny heartwarming family. A shame that is! All these bad ratings are honestly undeserved though.

    This show has the same humor as Scrubs and it can always pull off a great family moment, and like I said before, it's one of the better sitcoms on primetime. And who can't love Courtney Cox? Really.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Bobby: You guys can understand what I say, right?
      Jules: It should be me. I probably should've brought this up to you in our first through sixth year of marriage, but sometimes when you talk too quickly or too quietly, or when you talk at all-
      Ellie: Get to it! Bobby, we can't understand one word you say! Or as you would put it, we can't urbadurn your frazzle dazzle! (Everyone but Bobby laughs)
      Bobby: Ya'll think you're funnier than a barrel full of Foxworthys. But you're not. (Leaves)
      Jules: Does anyone know what he just said?
      Grayson: Nope.
      Laurie: Not a clue.
      Ellie: Frazzle dazzle.

    • Grayson: Can I give you some constructive criticism?
      Jules: As long as you start with something nice!
      Grayson: You are a great gal. Smart, funny...
      Jules: I can swim real fast!
      Grayson: So fast! But your hugs are too intense. Now I love 'em, not really, but for people you're not sleeping with, you can't give them that stab-me-with-your-pelvic-bone hug.
      Jules: But people love them!
      Grayson: But people don't. Just dial it back a little. Say I'm a grocery boy who just carried your bags to your car. How do you thank me? (Jules hugs him) Whoa! See, that's a little much.
      Jules: Okay. (They start to kiss, Travis and Kevin come in)
      Travis: Aww!
      Jules: Happy Thanksgiving break, sweetie! (Hugs him) Great that you could join us, Kevin! (Gives Kevin a big hug)
      Grayson: Jules...
      Jules: I can't help it. It's like hugging a sofa!
