What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.” - Yiddish Proverb


Did you notice that Hollywood recycles their 30-minutes comedy actors all the time?

Rita of Rita Rocks is the dog/Arthur-walker from King of Queens. She also appeared on Scrubs a couple of times. Rita’s husband, Jay is the guy from Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place. Yeah, he was the main character in the show but Ryan Reynolds made it bigger. Poor thing.

Even Doug of King of Queens used to have recurring side roles in Everybody Loves Raymond as one of Ray’s buddies. And Doug’s wife, she was almost cast as Monica of FRIENDS. And had appeared in one of the episodes, remember? As the pregnant lady Joey had a crush on?

And Joey of FRIENDS is Joey of Joey. Not a fan.

But I’m a fan of Everybody Loves Raymond! Marriage issues, witty sarcasm – what’s not to love? And yes, you should already know by now, that I’m like the biggest fan of FRIENDS.

And of course, Monica of FRIENDS is Jules of Cougar Town.

Jules’ employee, Laurie once appeared in How I Met Your Mother as one of Ted’s conquests. Barney is the legendary Doogie Howser and Lily was in Veronica Mars and That 70’s Show. Stella, Ted’s love interest in Season 4 is Elliot Reid, the neurotic doctor from Scrubs.

And yes, Jules’ best friend, Ellie is also Jordan, Perry’s sarcastic wife in Scrubs.

Oh anyways, I love love love How I Met Your Mother! New York, friendship, intelligent jokes – what’s not to love? And Scrubs is one of my favourites as well.


David Spade who plays Russel in Rules of Engagement was also in Just Shoot Me and 8 Simple Rules. The guy who plays Jeff is the anchorman in Less Than Perfect. His wife, Audrey also played Claudia, the cool mom in Grounded for Life.

By the way, I like Jeff. He reminds me of my husband. A lot. Hahaha.

Ronda, who played Claude’s best friend in Less Than Perfect has appeared in so many TV shows but the one I remember the most is her role as Robert’s partner in Everybody Loves Raymond. And don’t get me started on Andy Dick; he’s everywhere, he even has his own reality TV show.

Billie of Accidentally On Purpose was Dharma of Dharma & Greg. While I’m not a fan of the former because I think everything about the show screams ‘trying too hard’, I used to adore everything about Dharma & Greg. Oh and Billie’s best friend, Olivia, was Betty’s best friend in Ugly Betty. I like her thick Scottish accent.

The conclusion to the above finding: I watch too much TV.
