Elisha Cuthbert’s “Happy Endings” gives shout out to 24

Elisha Cuthbert has a new comedy series on ABC called Happy Endings and it seems like the writers of that show couldn’t resist the urge to throw in a cougar dig. The 24 episode where Kim Bauer gets stuck in an animal trap while a cougar looms over her aired on February 4, 2003 and jokes are still being made about it in 2011. Poor Elisha will never live that down. Watch the funny clip below:

“What if you were like stuck in a trap in the woods, and like a cougar was trying to eat you. Would you date then? Maybe your dad is the head of some elite counter terrorist unit and he only has 24 hours to — I don’t know… The point is, would you date?”

hahah..yee I saw it yesterday.It’s helirious

The couguar never tried to eat her ! The poor animal just stood on a rock, staring at Kim for 15 seconds and that’s it ! No one seems to have actually seen the scene, or else it’s more funny to reinvent it.

And Jack was not “the head of some elite counter terrorist unit” in season 2. He was in season 1 and 3, but not in season 2.

It was a joke, not a recap of the events of 24 Season 2.

Also, while it’s kind of sad that everyone is making jokes about the cougar scene, it’s also interesting how a short scene like this ended up becoming an internet meme. I guess it was the most random scene ever on 24, which is why a lot of people keep making jokes about it.

Wonder what the original writer of this scene was thinkin, or what the script said.

“This is the scene where Kim encounters a cougar and the two of them stare at each for 15 seconds.”

Probably the same guy who came up with “This is the scene where Kevin Wade and Nick hang out at a strip club” and “This is the scene where Nick shoots at Kevin with a water pistol”

Yeah I know it was a joke, it just bugs me everyone talking about 24 remember this particular scene and twists it to make it seem like the stupidest thing ever. Okay, having a cougar staring at Kim wasn’t the brightest idea, but it’s not like she was chased by it or anything. Yet everyone keeps remembering it that way.

It didn’t take long for them to do a 24 joke to Elisha Cuthbert on Happy Endings. The show isn’t really funny though. I wouldn’t be not happy if the show gets renewed, but I don’t think I’ll miss it if it gets cancelled. Too ordinary, not original enough.

I acctually really like the show. I mean it isn’t really original but I enjoy the cast and the personalities the charectors have. I really hope it stays on the air!

god shes so hot
