EXCLUSIVE: 'Happy Endings' Spoofs a Popular Reality Show -- Figure It Out!

'Happy Endings' - 'Full Court Dress'Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) is taking her love of fashion to the next level on this week's 'Happy Endings,' designing a dress for sister Jane (Eliza Coupe) to wear to a charity event.

In 'Full Court Dress' (Wed., Nov. 23, 9:30PM ET on ABC), the quirky Chicago shop owner reveals that she's been figuring out how to sew with an online sewing class, and the Web site may or may not be a total rip-off of 'Project Runway,'* complete with the second step-cousin of guru Tim Gunn,** Nick Gun, as the instructor.

(*For legal purposes, we should probably say that it isn't a rip-off. Even though it is.)
(**There's really no relation whatsoever.)


We've got the exclusive sneak peek at the blinking, flashing, fluorescent mess of a Web site for Situation Walkspace. Let's take a look, shall we? And fair warning: Get ready to be suffocated by the cutting edge of fashion.

Not surprisingly, the show's evil geniuses left no detail unexploited as they welcome fans to this online fashion revolution. Of course, Dave's Steak Me Home Tonight food truck is a prominent advertiser on the site, as is some kind of mail-order erectile dysfunction kit. There's even an audio file of Nick Gun's "famous" slogan: "Figure it out!"

And then we get to the robust class list:
*Intro to Sewing: The Foundation of "Figure It Out!"
*Quilt Your Future
*Buttons 101 (the pre-requisite for Buttons 201)
*Tassles & Notions
*Zippers Are Optional B****es
*Advanced Glue Gun: Your New Best Friend
*Cuffs, Cuffs, Cuffs, Cuffs, Cuffs
*Fur Tunics and You!

And my personal favorite:
*I Got 99 Problems But A Stitch Ain't One

It sounds like maybe Jane has taken a class or two from Nick Gun's knitting counterpart -- how else did she become such a "knitter with attitude"?

So can you figure it out why we love this show so much (and why I named it my show I'm most thankful for)? Leave your favorite 'Happy Endings' quotables in the comments -- there'll be plenty more to come out of this episode.
