Cougar Town

Breakdown - S1-E23

Trivia: While Jules and Travis discuss his graduation and Jules' popularity in school, Travis looks through his mom's yearbook and comments that there's a picture of Jules "dancing onstage with Bruce Springsteen." Courteney Cox, who plays Jules, appears in Bruce Springsteen's 'Dancing in the Dark' music video from 1984, as the girl in the audience who's pulled onstage by Springsteen to dance with him, towards the end of the video. This was Courtney's first acting job.

Lover's Touch - S3-E3

Trivia: Travis has an accident and has to wear a helmet for a few episodes. There's actually a real-world reason for that - the producers hated Dan Byrd's hair, but he didn't want to cut it, so they covered it up with a helmet.

Bobby Cobb: I'm bad at sex. There's a lot of thrashing and thumping, but nothing really gets done. I'm like a broken dishwasher.
