A great in-joke last night on 'Cougar Town'....

Jules Cobb's son Travis was going to graduate from high school and he was bemoaning the fact that there was only the official school picture of him in his yearbook. This was totally unlike the yearbook from his mother's high school years, which had twenty pictures of her (twenty-two, if you count the twin boys she dressed up to look like her).

Among those pictures there was one of Jules up onstage dancing with Bruce Springsteen, and we got to see it there in the yearbook. But actually, the picture came from Springsteen's music video for "Dancing in the Dark", which featured a young Courtney Cox as the girl brought up onstage to dance with the Boss.

And of course, Courtney Cox plays Jules in 'Cougar Town'. So I guess we can make the claim now that the girl who danced with Bruuuuce was Jules, and therefore both the sitcom and the video are linked in Toobworld.

Maybe next time they'll incorporate footage from 'Misfits of Science' into a flashback. We could see Jules using telekinetic powers..... (This is what it looked like when her character of Gloria exercised her mutant "gift".)
