Cougar Town Review: "Rhino Skin"
This week's episode of Cougar Town was the much-hyped Friends reunion of Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow, and the latter fit into the Cougar Town cast just fine. Kudrow guest starred as the town's master of botox, Dr. Amy Evans, that everyone can stand going to, but loved the results of.
Kudrow was great as Evans and the writers loaded her up with plenty of *itchy lines to use against Jules and Ellie. Our only complaint is that with how well Cox has aged compared to Kudrow it was weird hearing the doctor making fun of Jules' age lines.
The highlight of "Rhino Skin" was the always amazing Andy taking Travis under his wing and teaching him the ways of the woman. We finally learned how this short little balding man could land a hottie like Ellie.
Meanwhile, not to be left out of the episode, Grayson decided to mentor Laurie and convince her to go for Smith, a rich, smart guy she felt was too good for her. While this would have seen to be completely out of character for Grayson at the beginning of the season, it only felt slightly forced this week.
Jules continues to date Jeff (Scott Foley) and as we've stated before, we love anything that takes the cougar out of Cougar Town. Foley makes a much better cast addition than her previous boyfriend and we love having an extra funny, charming guy around. Cougar Town just keeps getting better and better.
Now for our favorite Cougar Town quotes after the jump.
Laurie: If Matt Damon weren't married and if he weren't a movie star and if he lived this town, we would totally date.
Jules: That's a lot of if's.
Ellie: Yeah, not enough. | permalink
Bobby: It's been awhile since I wore a tie, I keep thinking someone's trying to strangle me. | permalink
Dr. Evans: I like queen bitch, it makes me sound like leader of the gays. | permalink
Jeff: I like that your ex-husband lives on a boat, there is no possible way I can let you down. | permalink
