Episode Summary

EDIT
Edina's old friends, Bettina and Max, are coming to stay with her. Eddie remembers them as being notoriously minimalistic and tries to make the house presentable, eventually telling Patsy to leave. Patsy is hurt by this and leaves to find herself a new best friend. Meanwhile, Bettina and Max arrive with a new baby and soon Eddie's house resembles the the inside of a laundry basket.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Edina: What's the matter?
      Patsy: I'm not happy.
      Eddie: Well, take the car. Just go, go.
      Patsy: I don't want the car.
      Eddie: Just go and be unhappy somewhere else, go on!

    • Saffron: You were checking the fly, weren't you?
      Edina: I have to, darling!
      Saffron: I didn't think you still did that. It's been ten years since you saw that film, and Jeff Goldblum is now full-sized, wingless and living happily ever after in L.A.
      Edina: I know that, darling, but you'll be laughing the other side of your face the day you squash something with a little tiny human head against that window, darling. And it screams out "No, no! I'm a professor of physics! Take me back to my laboratory!" You'll wish you were a Buddhist then, darling.

    • Patsy: I'm not happy.
      Eddie: Take the car. Just go, go.
      Patsy: I don't want the car.
      Eddie: Just go and be unhappy somewhere else, go on!

    • (on minimalism)
      Bettina: (monotone) We like it. We think it's the new millennium.

    • Edina: Lacroix, baby spew. Lacroix, baby spew.

    • Gran: (Listening to Edina cheat with Max on the baby monitor) ...Is that Radio 4 dear?

    • Patsy: (About Bettina) Neat? She was so anally-retentive, she couldn't sit down for fear of sucking up the furniture!

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Saffron: You were checking the fly, weren't you?
      The exchange between Saffron and Edina in the kitchen regarding a fly on the wall is a reference to the 1986 film, The Fly.
