'Cougar Town': Mo money mo problems

Cougar-Town

The road to marriage hasn’t been an easy one for Jules and Grayson. Their most recent speed bump came in the form of money issues. Grayson assumed they’d combine their finances, but Jules wasn’t too thrilled about possibly supporting Grayson’s little “whoopsies.” So where does Jules go to deal with all her relationship issues? Her therapist, Lynn, of course!

But Grayson and Jules couldn’t seem to compromise, even with Lynn’s help. Andy looked at their finances and gave them a few possible suggestions: Jules could find a new, cheaper location for her realty office or she could fire Laurie. Perhaps the most helpful solution was to get rid of one of their houses, but that only created more problems. They couldn’t decide whose home to keep. But I have to say Jules gave a very convincing argument: “And while Grayson’s house doesn’t seem to get any natural light, he did go through a nasty divorce here which led to a yearlong skank parade. Now, I’m not trying to sway you either way, but when you get up from that ottoman, I’d go get a pregnancy test.” In the end, Grayson and Jules decided on a quick fix instead of long-term solution. Why sell the house now when they can let those hard decisions fester? Problem not solved!

Laurie’s Krazy Kakes business was booming. Things were going so well, in fact, that she didn’t have the manpower to fill all the orders: “I wish there was more than one of me. And not just for the sex stuff,” she lamented. So, naturally, she commandeered the patrons of the local coffee shop to help her. That worked for a while, but unsurprisingly wasn’t a solid business plan. But lucky Laurie! Thanks to Jules’ aforementioned money woes, she needed to lose an assistant. So Laurie quit/Jules fired her, and Krazy Kakes now shares office space with Jules Cobb Realty. Also, bonus points for the show reminding me that they have jobs other than drinking wine all day. (Which is a position I’m fully qualified for if anyone’s looking to hire.)

Meanwhile, Bobby got an important lesson about a self-generating water bottle. Spoiler alert! Self-generating water bottles do not exist. It was just a prank Andy and Ellie concocted to mess with Bobby. But they took it a little too far when an unsuspecting “he’s a beautiful person” Bobby got a little dehydrated while hiking. Don’t worry. He survived.
