  • Episode Description
  • The Mayor's free-thinking daughter, Meg, with whom he has a somewhat strained relationship, puts the "bare" in bareback when she disrupts a rally with hansom-carriage drivers in Central Park to draw attention to her animal rights stance--and not coincidentally, herself. Meantime, the gang tries to reunite a needy Paul with ex-girlfriend Claudia, but he's smitten with his new pen-pal.

    • Mike: Kids change a lot when they go away to college. I know I did. Before I went to Fordham, I was a large, Scandinavian woman.

    • Stacey: I can tell when people are lying. It's a gift. James: You know, I have a friend who can do the same thing. Stacey: No you don't.

    • Stuart: Why wouldn't you ask me to look after The Mayor's daughter? Mike: Same reason they don't give guns to monkeys.

    • Mike: What is the correlation between riding nude and a horses' happiness? Okay, I understand for that one horse.

    • (NYPD Blue Spoof) Stuart: I just want five minutes alone with this punk. Take my keys, take my belt, take my glasses...(bangs into table)...Give me my glasses.
