Cougar Town “The Trip to Pirate’s Cove” Recap

This week on Cougar Town, Ellie (Christa Miller) is enjoying the perks of being the mayor’s wife – drinking wine in public, handicapped parking, free stamps and getting the fire department to open jars for you. She’s living the life.

Laurie wears an orange hi-low dress with a cute jean jacket. I found this Culture Phit Lacie High-Low Dress ($67.99) and 1969 Gap Denim Jacket ($69.95) to recreate the look:

It’s Buccaneer Week and as mayor, Andy (Ian Gomez) has to help things run smoothly or the town might oust him as mayor. What he really needs is some help from Charming Ellie.

Ellie wears the Schoolboy Blazer from JCrew ($198) and a sold-out wheat print blouse from Phillip Lim. I used this Classiques Entier Flawless Jersey blouse to recreate the look ($110):

While Grayson’s (Josh Hopkins) bar is booming, Laurie’s Krazy Kakes business is flailing. She needs to find a way to get parents to purchase cakes for their kids. Tom (Bob Clendenin) asks Laurie to make a dirty cake for a bachelor party and she agrees. She wears a black polka dot Jessie Steele Apron from Layla Grace ($32) and a pink dress with cut-out sleeves. I found some similar style dresses from Gibson ($58) and Eliza J ($54.97) and this Aqua Multicolor Bib Necklace ($34) to complete the look:

Buccaneer Week is going smoothly, until Bobby (Brian Van Holt) stumbles upon killer jellyfish and decides to warn the town to stay out of the water. Unfortunately, it is a big week for Gulfhaven and they can’t have the beaches close because they would lose tourist money. To keep his job, Andy has to let everyone know that he doesn’t believe Bobby’s jellyfish story and Bobby is crushed. Andy convinces Bobby to publicly address the town and smooth things over, but he just makes it worse for Andy.

In the meantime, Ellie has to become Charming Ellie to charm Gulfhaven’s ladies who lunch. Jules can’t believe Ellie’s transformation and dubs her “Chellie.” It’s all going well until Ellie finds out that Jules likes Chellie better. Jules wears a red sleeveless blouson dress and Ellie wears a sold-out Vince colorblock cardigan. I found a similar Adrianna Papell Blouson Dress ($138) and Gabriella Rocha Sheila Color Block Cardigan ($40.99) to recreate their looks:

Laurie’s naughty Krazy Kakes are taking off, but Grayson warns her that she is on a slippery slope. Eventually, she has to kick all creepy weirdos out of her shop after they take it too far.


In the end, Andy and Bobby agree to go and test the water together, but are stung by jellyfish – at least they were together!

Jules convinces Ellie to be herself again, but with a side of Chellie for her so everyone wins!
