  • Episode Description
  • After learning that Synclaire hasn't had a date for six months, Regine and Max devote their energies to remedying this situation. Synclaire accepts a date from a handsome veterinarian named Michael, much to Overton's chagrin. Max and Regine give her a make-over and offer tips. Regine explains the "date laugh," in which the woman puts one hand on her date and the other on her cleavage when the man says anything amusing. They decide to follow Synclaire to the restaurant to make sure things go smoothly. Although Khadijah feels they should mind their own business, she also tags along. Synclaire is furious at their interference, and asks them to leave. She and Michael have a nice time, but he is called away on an emergency, thanks to a phone call set up by Overton. Overton steps in and takes his place at the table, and later takes Synclaire bowling. Synclaire sends Overton into the stratosphere with a kiss on the cheek, and he excitedly tells Kyle that he is six months ahead of schedule in his pursuit of her. Tag: Synclaire reads instructions for hopelessly complicated board game, Blasto.moreless
