  • An enjoyable if unremarkable episode...

    7.0
    What first appears to be an episode with more filling than your average trip to the dentist turns into an outing that's pretty damn fun in parts, and the ending is also a bit of a doozey. It starts off rather sluggishly but soon manages to speed up with a sub-plot involving Sketch that soon becomes a plot that doesn't involve him (and becomes all the better for it). Max and O'Cindy's little sexy escapade is a joy to watch and genuinely funny at times (not to mention sexy as hell!). The denouement involving Logan's mentor ends with a twist I didn't see coming, and while it doesn't grab you emotionally, it's a nice shock – says the sadist – to see the good guys lose out so soon in the season ("Damn. We've been played."), it mixes things up for the time being which can only mean good things!moreless

    In this episode I like the two storylines that eventually lead to one. Logan's search for his former mentor takes to the same location as Max. The way that Max is lead to the same people is by way of coincidences and good or bad luck. Max and Original Cindy poker hustling is amusing is the lines and their actions. I really like the way Max pulls out a royal flush and the line of "More hearts than an organ bank, baby!" is one of the best poker lines I ever heard. Much better than "read em and weep". In all its not one of the best but still worth watching.moreless

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Max (showing her Royal Flush in a poker game): More hearts than an organ bank, baby!

    • Original Cindy: Okay, so I guess we're going to throw down out here. (Rafe goes for the money in Original Cindy's top and she shoves him back) Nobody touches the ta-tas.
      Max: Come on, Sasquatch. Bring it on, big boy.(Backing up) Oh, oh, there are two of you.
      Original Cindy: Don't make me get ghetto with you. (picking up a metal pipe)

    • Rafe: You girls like poker?
      Max: Is that the game where you take your clothes off when you lose?

    • Max: Voice-activated parabolic mike with a high-gain noise filter...lithium-powered RF transmitter... broadcasting at what, 400 meg? I excelled in telecommunications as a child.
      Logan: 450 meg, actually.
      Max: Really? I stand corrected.

    • Original Cindy (talking to Max after finding Sketchy hanging upside-down naked): Now that is my idea of the perfect man!

    • (Max is flipping through photos of Alina and her father)
      Max: Sounds like a story right up your alley. It's so depressing.

    • Sketchy (after being handed all the winning money in a poker game): Your parents must have been terrorists 'cause you guys are the bomb!

    • Max: Oh, sorry! Is it okay if we help each other? I'm just remembering now this is that really confusing game with all those different cards. Which is probably why I always end up with no clothes on.

    • Max: You know, somebody's been eating french fries, cause these cards are greasy kinda like my ex - but we won't get into that.

    • Max: Funny guy Logan - lotta rules. But maybe he's right about one thing. Maybe I should pick a birthday. Just to have something to celebrate in this short brutal life. How about April Fools Day? Maybe not. My life's enough of a joke. Yesterday, yeah. Born yesterday. And the best part is I have a whole year not to think about it.

    • Rafe: Don't rush off.
      Max: We live with our parents.
      Original Cindy: They worry.

    • Max: Can you believe him? We bail his ass out and now he's lookin' for another pay day!
      Original Cindy: Cream, baby, cream.
      Max: Huh?
      Original Cindy (as she signs the letters while saying them): Cash Rules Everything Around Me.

    • Logan: When is your birthday, by the way?
      Max: I have no clue.
      Logan: What do you mean?
      Max: Manticore wasn't big on that type of thing.

    • Logan: You should pick one. A birthday.
      Max: What for?
      Logan: In this short brutal life you gotta seize any opportunity you can to celebrate.

    • Logan: A genetically engineered killing machine, squeamish about guns.

    • Logan: It's a kicked or be kicked in the ass world out there.
      Max: Now kickin' ass, I got no issues with.
