  • Mia steals Hanks book and there is nothing he can do, Becca wants to move in with Hank

    Oh man, I hate Mia. I realize I am starting to sound like a broken record but come on, 16 year old kids are not that awful in real life are they? She trapped him into statutory rape since she knew exactly who he was and he had no idea. Then she tortures him and then continues on to steal his work?! He was right, she is a sociopath. And now her stealing the work is making Becca miserable and that is clearly unacceptable. I love Becca she is wise beyond her years and adorable. Karen cannot marry Bill he is an idiot and I don't know why a cool chick like her would ever be with a loser like him. Ew. I cannot wait for the season finale to my favorite new show!moreless
  • Cant wait for the finale

    Hank is a little depressed by the way things are falling into place. His daughter moves in with him. He doesnt know Mya is about to sell his story. Hanks Ex is now on the crossroads. Hank has won over his daughter but lot is said which might make us think otherwise. This episode deals with alot of rhetoric which is a welcome change. Hopefully the next episode will end well cant wait to see the marriage. Its goin to be total mayhem. If all goes well what can i say that never does happen on this show. So enjoy the finale like i will.moreless
  • How this season is going to finish is anyone's guess!

    Well I think I can only start off by echoing most people's sentiments when I say that I really do dislike Mia. Her brazen attitude and reasoning for stealing Hank's book infuriated me immensely. I do however think that she'll come good. Clearly when Becca spoke to her, you could see her words had an effect on Mia, and she may just own up in the season finale but it may not just be owning up to the true author of the book.

    I was glad that Charlie spotted it was Hank's work, but I think that Danni may prove difficult in that respect holding what she does over him.

    And then there's the whole marriage to Bill! It won't happen ... will it?

    Next week's episode just has so many possibilities! It should be a great end to a great first season.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Dani: (referring to Mia) It's been a great ride, Charlie Runkle. We proved sex and the workplace can mix, we subverted some dominant paradigms, and from a feminist standpoint, we're about to launch a major female writer. She was great, wasn't she? I mean she was poised, she was funny. She had them eating out of her hand and looking up her skirt at the same time.

    • Temp: And you are?
      Hank: (heading for Charlie's office) Going in there.
      Temp: I'm sorry, sir, I can't--
      Hank: (pointing to the clock) Hey wait, wait, wait. Would you look at the time? The big hand says "fuck" and the little hand says "off." Good thing it doesn't have a second hand, huh?

    • Charlie: Dani's dripping wet over this manuscript of hers. In fact, she insists that I pump it, launch her agenting career, or she's going to hit me with the mother of all sexual harassment suits.
      Hank: Oh Charlie, I'm sorry. You think you can get me a front row seat to the trial? I'd like to be behind you in all the courtroom sketches.
      Charlie: You're such a good friend.

    • Hank: Oh yes, by all means, get that thing off. The groom should not see you in the dress just before the wedding, that's bad luck. You know what's worse luck is, uh, getting married itself...
      Karen: Shut up!
      Hank: I've read studies, like two out of three of those end in divorce. Sometimes more, three out of two, so...

    • Hank: The good news is, though, that as of today, you and your extensive porn collection are moving into the Four Seasons.
      Charlie: Fantastic!
      Hank: I called ahead. I booked you a room in the "husbands who've been kicked to the curb by their diminutive lesbian wives" wing.
      Charlie: It's right next to the "young actresses fresh into town" wing, am I correct?

    • Hank: I'm sorry.
      Karen: About what? You won.
      Hank: Not when you're this upset. I didn't win a goddamn thing. I hate seeing you this sad. Ever. Except, maybe after sex with Bill. There's a smile. A small smile, but a smile nonetheless. I'll take it.

    • Becca: I'm not going to live with my dad because it's fun. I'm going because I have to. I don't know if you've noticed, but your dad is about to marry my mom.
      Mia: Yeah, so?
      Becca: So it's really happening. He can't pretend anymore that it's not. And whatever miraculous thing he thought was going to happen with the writing. You know that thing he wrote back home in New York was going to be the redemption of his soul. Obviously, that's not happening either.
      Mia: No, I guess not.
      Becca: So it's official. Rock bottom. The death of hope. Can't leave him alone now. The man's got nothing.

    • Mia: I never intended to be famous, but I do like being the center of attention. It feels just like I thought it would. Totally f***ing great.
      Hank: But it's gonna go away.

    • Hank: You are a very young sociopath in training.
      Mia: Oh, come on. That's like Satan calling one of his junior minions a big meanie.

    • Hank: Sorry, I'm late. I just, uh...
      Charlie: You just what?
      Hank: Nah, that's all I got.

    • This episode is rated TV-MA for graphic language and adult content.


    • Becca: (to Mia, referring to moving in with Hank) Sure, it'll be a hoot. Like taking Kafka to the Third Street Promenade.

      This is a reference to Franz Kafka, a prominent writer of fiction in the early 1900s. Some of his most popular pieces of writing were published after his death in 1924.

    • Victoria: (referring to Mia) She'd be great with the press, right? Like Elizabeth Wurtzel.

      Elizabeth Wurtzel is a Harvard-education author, best known for her book, Prozac Nation, which describes her battle with depression. In 2001, a movie version of her memoir was released, starring Christina Ricci.

    • Bill: (referring to Becca moving out) She's doing the only thing she can to assert her self.
      Karen: What, like getting away from me like I'm the Wicked Witch of the West or something?

      This is a reference to the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, which was based on a children's book by L. Frank Baum. The Wicked Witch of the West, played by Margaret Hamilton, was the enemy of Dorothy, the main character in the story.
