'Cougar Town' Flashback Shows How The Cul-De-Sac Crew Came To Be (VIDEO)

"Cougar Town" opened its scrapbook with a series of flashbacks that showed how many of the members of the cul-de-sac crew first met. Apparently, everyone had a "meet-cute" except for Grayson and Jules. Only they did have one -- it's just that neither of them remembers. It was one of those random street encounters that people generally don't think twice about.

Viewers learned that there was a time when Jules was a lot more like Bobby than she might have ever wanted to admit. Travis was very young and impressionable when he saw Laurie wrestling in water -- the boy never stood a chance. Actually surprising, though, was learning that there was a time when Ellie worried she wasn't good enough for Andy. She wasn't always in complete and total control of that relationship.

Grayson was disappointed that he and Jules didn't have a "meet-cute," but then the viewers got to see that they did. They bumped into each other on the street, dropping groceries. It was Grayson who gave Jules the bottle she used to befriend Ellie -- and fall madly in love with wine.

"You know what? Why don’t you take this?" he said to her about the bottle of wine. "It’s great for making friends" And it was. The cul-de-sac crew wouldn't exist without the bottle. It's just sad that neither he nor Jules can remember their "meet-cute." Perhaps that's one of the reasons the scene had TV Fanatic in tears.
