As of season 5, they are officially a couple. In the season 5 finale, Laurie gives Jules some of her urine to use for a physical, as Jules had happy pills in her system at the time, and it was revealed that she is pregnant with Travis's child. He spent most of their marriage touring as a semi-pro golfer and cheated on her several times, leading to their divorce. After the divorce, he spent his time as a golf instructor and grass-cutter at Travis' high school, while hanging out with his best friend, Andy.
During this time, he lived on a grounded houseboat and drove a well-worn golf cart for transportation. He also invented the game 'Penny Can' which becomes very popular, first among the group but later among a wide variety of people after Roger Frank the father of Laurie's ex-boyfriend purchases it for his company.
Throughout the series, he has been shown to not have as many relationships as he'd like. Some of his flings included Jules' dermatologist, Travis's photography teacher, and a woman named Sam, all of which ended in disaster. He is dating a tom-boyish redhead named Lisa Riggs. During the last season, Bobby is rarely seen, as he was encouraged by Andy to take a well-paying golf pro job in Georgia.
He loves both of his parents although is constantly embarrassed by both of them. At school, he constantly deals with humiliation from his friends and classmates. He is generally supportive of his mother, but feels that her dating exploits cause him embarrassment. After dealing with his mom's real estate ads around town and his dad's new job as his school's lawn mower, his father helps him realize not to worry about what other people think.

He seems to have a crush on her whenever he's not with someone. However after being embarrassingly rejected time after time he begins sleeping with random girls, and has a 'skank parade'. Laurie at this point is with Wade, her online soldier boyfriend who has just returned from Afghanistan, and she is outraged at Travis' behavior. Seeing this, Wade breaks up with her, and she soon begins to reveal that she does have feelings for Travis.
She tells him, and after he once again confesses his feelings, they go on their first date. Andy is a devoted husband to Ellie and also a loving father to their son, Stan. Although he is of Latino descent, he never bothered to learn Spanish, unlike Jules, Ellie and Laurie, who speak it fluently.
He loves coffee and displays deep loyalty and hero worship for Jules' ex-husband, Bobby, his best friend before and after the divorce. Andy is a business mogul and corporate hotshot at his job, but a childlike sweetheart with family and friends. His common catchphrase is "Come onnnnnnnn! During season 3, Andy expresses an interest in running for mayor and campaigns against Roger Frank, the father of Laurie's ex-boyfriend, Smith.
Because the position has little or no authority, no one bothered to tell him about it. He owns and operates Gray's Pub, a frequent hangout for the gang.

Grayson, like Jules, is also newly divorced, but unlike Jules, he embraces his bachelorhood and single lifestyle. Grayson enjoys dating and sleeping with younger women, often rubbing it in Jules' face. Yet he is still tethered by the fact that his ex-wife, Vivian, left him because he wanted kids and she claimed that she did not; however, it is later revealed that she got engaged to another man and is pregnant—a crushing blow for Grayson.
He is shown to be very vain, often looking at himself in the mirror and reminiscing about his time as a male model.

He unintentionally revealed his interest in Jules to Bobby and Andy at Thanksgiving. After dating and falling in love with Jules, Grayson proposes to her in the season 3 premiere.

Barry Bostwick plays Roger Frank, a wealthy businessman and Smith's father.
Stuff like that, kind of like playful, fun stuff. There are no like huge, monumental things to overcome. Really, the people overcoming things are the rest of the cast overcoming the idea of the two of us together and that's something that we touch on in the first episode. Jules' whole dilemma is trying to be OK with the Trav-Laurie situation. Of course, she sort of pretends she is, but she's kind of in a state of denial and in coming clean, she has to figure out how she can actually get to a point where she's OK seeing her best friend and her son together.
Must-see new winter shows It seems like there's a lot of opportunity for physical comedy coming up this season when you're playing with this new situation, such as the scene with you and Laurie in the shower in the season premiere. Most of the stuff that looks fun is usually the least fun because it's all very technical to make sure it looks funny and looks right.
I'll come right out and tell you that both Busy and I had body doubles for the shower scene. Aside from the shots of our faces, all the body parts you see — that wasn't us.
That must be an interesting conversation after having played the son role for many years. Then you come in for Season 5 and suddenly you have to have a conversation about whether you're going to use a body double.
It's one I try to avoid at all costs, but sometimes you got to have that conversation.
Cougar Town (season 4) - Wikipedia
They had several body double options to choose from and asked me to pick and I just preferred that somebody else pick that. That's just not something that I really want to spend time thinking about at the end of the day and I feel bad picking one guy over another because of my own vanity and hang-ups. I would obviously prefer the guy with washboard abs, but I know that's not realistic at the end of the day so I just let somebody else make those decisions for me.
Coming up for the rest of the season, what will we see from Travis in regards to his school life and his life after he graduates? The whole college life is not touched on at all this season. It's really just him and Laurie and then him with the rest of the gang.
I do graduate from college so this is the second graduation that we've gone through. Most of this stuff is just exploring the Trav-Laurie dynamic, but then towards the end of the season, they talk a little more seriously about what the future actually holds for both of them. Then if we come back next season, I'm sure that will be touched on more. Now that Travis is dating Laurie and about to graduate, is he also closer to becoming a full-fledged member of the Cul-de-Sac crew?
He is of drinking age now. You can only hope. I think they always want him to be an outsider to a certain extent, because you need somebody to sort of comment on the ridiculous stuff they're doing so consistently. You kind of need that voice in the mix. Yeah, the older he gets, the more molded into the fabric of the whole group I think he becomes.
The show has become known for its great title cards and the season starts off with a comment about how the show is now in its fifth season. After a few years on the bubble at ABC, what does it feel like to get to Season 5? It was really cool. It's been something that surprises you every step of the way. I definitely didn't expect a pilot called Cougar Town to last a whole season, let alone five seasons.
