  • Episode Description
  • Laverne is very impressed with Keith at their first meeting, but things take a turn for the worse when Ms. Hunter catches Keith and Regine in a romantic interlude on the roof a few days later. (Max, who observed the entire encounter from her apartment, documents it for the neighborhood newsletter.) Regine cannot get her mother to speak to her, so she comes down to her favorite bingo parlor with Khadijah to confront her. Laverne explains that Regine's behavior reminds her of the time that Regine was conceived in the bleachers during a Mets game. Regine assures her that she has control of her life, and there is no reason to worry. When one of Laverne's bingo cards is a winner, she and her daughter celebrate with a shopping spree. Overton decides to pop the question to Synclaire. He spots the perfect ring, but must negotiate with the eccentric old man who presently owns it. Tag: Overton and Ray take a "chopper" ride.moreless

    • Khadijah: You've always said how you wanted your mother out of your life, now you've got it. Regine: Uh uh, if I'm not talking to my mother, that's one thing, but if she's not talking to me...that's unnatural! I miss my mommy.

    • Kyle: Regine, I can understand why you'd be a bit humiliated right now, but maybe you should get a bucket of water. Regine: What for, Kyle? Kyle, Khadijah and Synclaire: The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire!

    • Regine: Mommy, it's not what it looks like. Keith: Good cover, baby.

    • (While having sex) Regine: Say my name! Say my name! Keith: Regine! Regine! Regine: Spell it!

    • Synclaire: Beans in the oven. Regine, it just makes me want to call out perfect baby names. Syncloverton.

    • While trying to avoid eye contact with Regine and Keith, Laverne stares at the cupcakes she dropped and mutters, "It took so long to bake it." This is a lyric from Jimmy Webb's "MacArthur Park," a #1 hit for Donna Summer in 1978 (and sung by Max throughout Never Can Say Goodbye).
