Trivia: Cougartown
  • Actor Allusion: Tons.
    • Jules (Cox) asking her son if he's just faking being sad to make happy news a surprise - frequently done by Joey. Also, like Monica, Jules is a good cook and somewhat of a neat freak.
      • When Jules fails to get a reference to Seinfeld, Elles tells her it was a show... "You know, Must See TV?"
      • Could be 2 references in one, as Scrubs was also an infrequent part of the "Must See TV" line-up (at one point even having Friends as its direct lead-in).
    • Ellie (Miller) losing interest every time the conversation stops being about her, and using the exact phrase"I'm back in!" whenever somebody says something interesting again.
    • Travis noting to Kirsten explaining how she's his escape from 'friends' prison immediately after mentioning Jules.
    • Travis flipping through Jules's yearbook and finding the picture of her dancing with Bruce Springsteen. She proceeds to demonstrate.
    • Travis's college roommate, Kevin, is mentioned as being an "all-state linebacker in high school."
    • Ellie's husband has had 2 vasectomies.
    • Both Grayson and Andy have been in Alanis Morissette videos.
    • Too many references to Scrubs to include here, see Crossover Punchline example on the main page for the most concentrated single instance.
    • Both Josh Hopkins (Grayson) and Ian Gomez (Andy) were in Alanis Morisette videos, which made it on the show (Grayson's modeling past and Andy's... random-ass past).
  • Channel Hop: From ABC to TBS.
  • Word Of God: In 2014, Bill Lawerence finally confirmed what the show wouldve been called had the title been changed, on Twitter. "Sunshine State"
