  • Episode Description
  • After Regine breaks up with her latest beau, a handsome attorney named Charles, she grants Max permission to give him a call. However, she is furious when Max goes to church and Sunday brunch with Charles. She suspects that Max doesn't even care about Charles, and is only using him to hurt Regine. Regine persuades a reluctant Khadijah to ask Max to break up with Charles. Max refuses, as she enjoys Charles's company and doesn't feel that Regine should always get her own way. Max later drops by the apartment and announces that she has dumped Charles. When Regine praises her for her selflessness, Max admits that Charles was the one who broke things off. The girls agree not to date each other's ex-boyfriends--unless he's really fine. Overton is forced to endure a slew of phone calls from lonely women when his ad offering handyman services accidentally ends up in the personals. Tag: Overton puts out toaster fire when Synclaire is distracted by phone calls.moreless

    • Max: All right, from this point on ward no occupant of this house. (Regine gives her a look) Or friend of an occupant of this house will date the ex or current boyfriend of said others. Syclaire: Well, that about covers it. Khadijah: But what if he really fine? Max: Then all bets are off.

    • Synclaire: Come on, Khadijah. How would you feel if Max was dating your old boyfriend? Khadijah: She knows better.

    • Max: Regine, you chewed him up and spit him out and told me to call him. Regine: No, I didn't say that. I said you could call him. Khadijah you were there. Khadijah: No, no, I ain't got nothin' to do with it. Max: Your exact words were: "Go ahead, call him." Regine: And you took that as a "yes?" Max: Now what are you gettin' so worked up about? You didn't even like him. Regine: That's not the point, the point is, you broke the rules. You're supposed to let it cool off for one-third of the total dating time or one month for each year, whichever's shorter. Khadijah: If only you used your powers for good. Max: Regine, this is New York in the 90's the only rules of dating are: five locks on the door and keep the stun gun on your side of the bed. Regine: Please, now that is just the dumbest logic I ever heard. No wonder you can't win a case. Max: I win plenty. And at least I got a job. What kind of job do you have? Shopping. Regine: I'm a buyer for a boutique. Max: Shopping. Regine: Well someone needs to shop for your non-dressin' behind. Max: This is ridculous. I can't believe you're gonna let a man effect our friendship. Regine: No, I'm not. Because we don't have a friendship! (Kyle knocks on the door, comes in, shuts the window) Kyle: And the woman in 3-B thinks Max is right. (Leaves)

    • Max: So, what is Mr. Lover-Man doing perusing the personals? Kyle: Baby, I was lookin' for a much needed date, (Max laughs) for you.
