'Happy Endings' Slips in a '24' Easter Egg for Star Elisha Cuthbert (VIDEO)

Elisha Cuthbert, 'Happy Endings' - 'Your Couples Friends & Neighbors'As 'Happy Endings' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC) settled into its regular time-slot, the show threw a little nod out to the television series that brought star Elisha Cuthbert into the spotlight.

Still reeling after running out on her own wedding, Alex (Cuthbert) isn't ready to date. That's bad news for Penny (Casey Wilson from 'SNL'), because the blind double-date she set up just walked in the door. Doing some quick thinking, Penny tries to convince Alex that she is indeed ready to date.

When her first metaphor about a cougar trying to eat Alex doesn't work, she tries another approach.

"Maybe your dad is the head of some elite counter terrorist unit and he only has 24 hours to -- I don't know," she falters. "The point is, would you date?"

Perhaps the fond memories of her time working with Kiefer Sutherland on '24' cheer her up a bit, because this scenario -- though it makes no sense -- is the trick to convince Alex to try dating.

Maybe Cuthbert can return the favor by throwing a nod to 'Saturday Night Live' in Wilson's direction in a future episode. Maybe a reference to the "Cougar Den"?

the cougar one makes sense too. In the second season she was trapped in the woods for about an hour and a half until rescued by a lunatic hunter. So UMP!
