Phillips plays himself in the episode scheduled for Wednesday, May 4. He’s a customer of Grayson’s (Josh Hopkins).
To say more would be venturing into spoiler territory, which we don’t want to do. But we can tell you that the Phillips-Grayson story is a subplot in the episode, which centers on Jules (Courteney Cox) trying to take a step back while Travis (Dan Byrd) makes a big decision. We’re sure that goes well. The crew also sets up a “council” to mete out punishment in an effort to stop taking each other for granted.
We can also offer up a couple more of Phillips’ appearance. Whatever it is that Grayson’s peddling, it appears Phillips is satisfied with it.
As for this one, we just like the goofy look on Hopkins’ face.
“Cougar Town” returns at 9:30 p.m. ET Monday (April 18) with a one-time airing after “Dancing With the Stars”; it moves back to its regular 9:30 Wednesday home on April 20.
