  • Once again the preview was very misleading, but the episode was still as good as you would expect it to be.

  • Quotes (9)

    • Kyle: Amanda, you said we need to talk.
      Amanda: Right. You didn't think I meant...
      Kyle: Maybe a little. After a few people weighed in.
      Amanda: The one time you didn't take my words literally. Did you really think my feelings had changed? Is that why you brought me here?
      Kyle: I brought you here 'cause everyone else was making assumptions about what you wanted and how you were feeling and what was right for you. But no one was actually asking you.
      Amanda: That's why my feelings for you could never change.

    • Lori: It took all my willpower not to trip her.

    • Jessi: I can do anything Kyle can do. Josh: Can you make out with Amanda? 'Cause that would be hot.

    • Kyle: Spring cleaning isn't just about sorting through things, and getting rid of clutter. It's about taking stock of who you are, and how others see you. It's a chance to redefine yourself, to change expectations, and to remember that it's never too late to recapture who you were, or to aim for who you want to be.

    • Stephen: (about his job offer) It's a great salary, I'd be the Senior V.P. in Charge of Software Development. Nicole: Yeah, at a company that makes elevator control panels. Stephen: Well, it's not as exciting as a career change, I admit, but at least this time around I won't have an evil boss.
