    The best episode of Accidentally on Purpose yet. There were a number of funny bits tonight. Like when her friend Olivia shows her breasts when she tells bad news and then when Billie walks in on Zack and Heather and she on the phone with Olivia and says, "Zack's having sex on the couch with a woman and she must be telling him bad news because her top is off!" Also early in the episode when Davis was being a pain and she hit him and it hurt and she said, "My chick punch." Right before that the "You look good as a small Asian woman" comment was pretty good as well.

    I think the writing is getting better on this show. This might have been the best episode in CBS Monday nights comedy lineup tonight which is really weird considering.

    The premise of Billie dating and then telling a man she's pregnant on the first date is daunting. I think a lot of men would react the way Ryan did. Zach was nice to come in but he should have invited his date in as well. She seems like a free spirit. It probably would have been funny and OK. I'm glad Zack was there. I wouldn't want James to get another shot at Billie.

    So I believe we as viewers are becoming more empathetic to the characters and are beginning to bond with them. It will be interesting to see the ratings tomorrow. Thanks for reading...moreless

    • (talking about Billie and Zack)
      Davis: Don't stress him out. She's not gonna try to marry him. She's just gonna mold him into a boring funless drone whose sole purpose in life is to accompany her to the fabric store! I mean, Shark Week? That's canceled. Peeing in the sink, finished! (to Zack) I mean, she's gonna have your balls in a bear trap. But other than that, you are all good!

    • Abby: What about Zack? Are you at least gonna tell him you're going to start dating?

    • Billie: (talking to her sister on the phone) So... about my internet date, uhm, he's married. And on top of that, his wife is pregnant too, and we have the same doctor. And, I asked him to leave.

    • Zack: Billie, don't worry about it. You are beautiful, and you're funny. And you've got a cool job. Awesome TV. Insurance. Any guy would be lucky to have you.
