Cougar Town Review: "Counting on You"

by at . Comments

Maybe it's because Scrubs moved to Wednesday nights alongside Cougar Town, but I finally had a strange revelation last night.  Bill Lawrence really did just move Scrubs to the suburbs.

The whole cast hoping in on a game like "gay traps?"  Very reminiscent of the various games that J.D. and Turk would start around the office that would catch on.

Andy's Motorcycle

Giving Grayson the nickname of small eyes and making little snide jokes about it throughout the episode?  Very Scrubs.  Oh and don't get us started about the blumpies.  Luckily, all three jokes worked very well throughout the episode.

Don't get us wrong, as huge Scrubs fans, this isn't really us complaining.  Just a casual observation.  As far as Cougar Town episodes go, "Counting on You" was actually really good.

The gang got around together at the start discussing the age-old question of whether men and women can be friends without the sexual tension.  While every sitcom and human being has had this conversation, Cougar Town actually used it to help advance the Jules-Grayson relationship nicely.  Definitely worked for us.

The second story finally gave Andy a chance to man up for the first time in 17 episodes and show his backbone.  Definitely worked.  While Bobby's message from his noodling adventure with Travis was a little incoherent, we always love seeing this father-son bonding.

Overall, we enjoyed the episode so be sure and check our Cougar Town quotes after the jump.

Ellie: When Andy and I met, we were in the same circle of friends, but basically, it was just a doink chain that I worked my way around.
Andy: And guess who was last? | permalink
Jules: I had sex in your house. Right over there.
Ellie: So? We conceived Stan on your kitchen island. | permalink
Barb: Hey Jules. Hmm, feels good to have a lot of power between your legs, doesn't it? Motorcycles are good too.
Jules: Do you just follow me around, waiting to say things? | permalink
Laurie: Well I have tons of guy friends.
Grayson: Have you slept with any of them?
Laurie: Yeah, I've slept with all of the them, but only as friends. | permalink
