According to Michael Ausiello of TV/Line, the Cul de Sac Crew from 'Cougar Town' will be invoking a major TV trope by visiting Hawaii... where they will run into Ted Buckland, the sad sack lawyer from Sacred Heart Hospital in 'Scrubs'.

Both 'Scrubs' and 'Cougar Town' have Bill Lawrence as the creative mastermind, and several actors from 'Scrubs' have already appeared in 'Cougar Town' - but not as their original characters. Of course the most prominent is Lawrence's wife Christa Miller, who's a regular on 'Cougar Town'. (Off topic - she's a fictional member of the family with her Kate O'Brien on 'The Drew Carey Show'.)

'Cougar Town' also frequents the same coffee addicts' hangout as did the staff at Sacred Heart. But they also referred to the TV show 'Scrubs' at one point. So meeting Ted Buckland should be..... veddy interestingk.

It's a smart move for this to happen in Hawaii, away from their familiar turf. That way the audience still won't know exactly where 'Scrubs' took place. (But it had to be near a SeaWorld, that's all I know.....)

According to Ausiello, this crossover will happen during May Sweeps. The Cul de Sac Crew will fly out to the fiftieth state to help Travis during some sort of crisis. I'm betting either his girl friend dumps him, or even better to justify bringing everybody out there - she dies!

Sorry, Kirsten - nothing personal, strictly business.

Here's one thing I will expect to happen during the episode: Bobby Cobb will hit me with a Zonk by mentioning 'Hawaii Five-O' as a TV show. How could he resist? (Or at least 'Magnum P.I.' or 'Lost'......)
