  • Billie is dating Brian. Zack is being driven crazy by this. James takes advantage of this and makes Zack do something pretty stupid. Brian ends up to still be involved with his ex-wife. So Billie is not dating Brian.moreless

    "Get back to second base it looks like..."

    A little disappointing after last weeks season high. This episode just did not have any chemistry. I like the characters, the dialogue is pithy, but for some reason nothing really seems to happen.

    "Look, that ones driving!"

    I did enjoy the crabs in the car scene and James ducking back out of sight when Brian and Billie looked out the window. What an instigator! Of course they did charge them on Billie's credit card.

    "My love life is more depressing that a war torn Soviet state!"

    What was with the ex-wife. Brian and Pam seemed awfully together for being just divorced. Also Brian's thing about having an instant family was creepy. The line, "Oh, you're keeping him", was very funny as well.

    It seems that this show should be better. For some reason as I stated the chemistry is just not there. Thanks for reading...moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Davis: (to Zack) When I saw that guy kissing your pregnant lady, I got this really sick feeling in my stomach. Kinda like the time I saw my mom skinny-dipping with my Uncle Bob.

    • Billie: What are you doing?
      Zack: I'm looking out for you.
      Billie: Well, stop it. I have been dating since... oh my God! Since you were in kindergarten.

    • Davis: (to Zack) Oh, man! You were right about that guy. He's trying to steal your baby. Like a reverse stork.

    • Zack: Look, I know it doesn't look like it, but I'm doing all this because I care about you.
      Billie: I know you do, but there has to be a universe where I get to be happy too. Please be happy with me.

    • Pam: He used to call me his muse. Didn't ya?
      Brian: Well, I called you a lot of things. Muse was one of them.

    • Brian: [Pam] didn't want to have kids. Which is what I love about you. Because if things work out between us, it's like an instant family. I'm an automatic dad.
      Billie: Whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Tha-- that's very sweet. But my situation is a little more complicated than that. I mean, there's Zack.
      Brian: Oh, so you're keeping Zack?

    • Billie: My love life is more depressing than a war-torn Soviet state.
