  • Max and Logan [almost] gettn bizzy.

    It's a busy, busy episode, this one. There are quite a few pivotal storylines at play here, but there are a few moments of misplaced comedy as well. It's not that these segments weren't funny - in fact when Max hits on her boss it's hilarious, and I always enjoy more Original Cindy screen time - they just stick out like sore thumbs, given the content of the previous episode involving Tinga. That storyline is addressed, however, and it all ends with a doozey of a cliff-hanger, so I suppose I should forgive and forget. As penultimate episodes go, this one was a little too messy at times, but it tackles some major arc-heavy plot points and sets up the finale nicely.moreless
  • In this episode, Max is in Heat again and does some crazy things!

    This is one of my favorite episodes! The best part was when max goes into Normal's office and the music starts playing and she is starring at him like he is HOT! I have watched that scene like every week and I still laugh everytime! Also, I liked this episode because it was the first time that Max and Logan admit that they like each other! I had been waiting for that the entire season! This episode was so hilarious with all of the other scenes when max has to fight her "urdge". This episode is exactly what this show needed!moreless
  • max gets crazy

    i loved this episode it was funny in the begining with max looking at every guy, and i couldnt stop laughing when she like attacked her boss, that was halarious. also her with logan was funny too. i didnt like the fact that she slept with that other guy but i was happy that logan understood and finally! they get together! but then zack came in. the ending was sad poor tinga and max, i wonder what will happen. and lydecker i feel bad for, he is so out of the loop, i wonder how hes going to handle it all, i hate that lady though.moreless

  • Max goes into heat

    The manin focus of this episode dealt with Max going into heat. We are also leading up to the season finale as Max's "brothers and sisters" return. Lydecker comes to realize that Manticore doesn't see him as an asset any longer.

    Though the storyline dealing with Max's urges was funny, it was heartbreaking at the end, but she and Logan find a good place in their relationship.

  • QUOTES (23)

    • Max: So about last night.
      Logan: It's no big deal.
      Max: I owe you an explanation. See, I go through these phases.
      Logan: Phases?
      Max: 'Cause of my feline DNA. Oh, God. This is something I don't want to talk about. You know...cats. Mating cycles.
      Logan: Oh. Cycles. Really. So, you go into...wow.

    • Original Cindy (to Max): The only reason you ended up with hot boy is because you were running from the reality of the situation. Now you gonna have to step to the real about you and Logan, sooner or later, or your little head's gonna explode. But what do I know? I'm just a big ol' lesbo.

    • Max (to Logan): Yeah, yeah, we foiled Pierpont Lempkin's evil plan and saved the world. Now can we get out of here?

    • Original Cindy (about Logan): Think you can make it through without jumping his bones?
      Max: I don't even want to think about that. I just got to focus on the task at hand, and the task at hand is delivering packages. (Takes package from Original Cindy) Where does this go?

    • Max: I just gotta get through the next 24 hours, and of course today had to be the one year anniversery of the night Logan and I met, and of course he had to remember, and of course he wants to have dinner.

    • Original Cindy: Okay, that's it.
      Max: What?
      Original Cindy (referring to Scrabble): We're done with this game.
      Max: Why?
      Original Cindy: Look at your words.
      Max: So
      Original Cindy: "Hung."
      Max: Like a noose around your neck.
      Original Cindy: "Prick"
      Max: Like with a needle. You have a dirty mind.
      Original Cindy: Yeah? Well, then, what about this one which I'm not even going to say 'cause I kiss my momma with this mouth.
      Max: Oh, God. You're right.

    • Original Cindy: You got an itch, go scratch. It ain't got to be all complicated either. The male mind understands the difference between love and sex. (Original Cindy and Max get up and walk out of the locker room.) Sketchy, come here.
      Sketchy: Hello, ladies.
      Original Cindy: I want to get busy with you.
      Sketchy: Outstanding.
      Original Cindy: But I want you to forget about it as soon as it's over.
      Sketchy: Yeah, no problem.
      Original Cindy: And don't be following me around all moo-eyed and "baby, I love you."
      Sketchy: Yeah, whatever you say.
      Original Cindy: See? No complications. (Sketchy puts his arms on Original Cindy's shoulders)
      Sketchy: So when we gonna do this?
      Original Cindy: Get away from me, fool 'fore I put you in a world of hurt.
      Sketchy: I knew it.

    • Max: Look at hot boy down there. (Max looking out the window at a blond haired muscular guy) He's got some biceps on him. Mmm.
      Original Cindy (while raising her hand to smack Max): Don't make me put the smack down on your ass.

    • Max: I can just sit on my hands, try not to look at him. Try not to think, ( Max starts to look dreamy) about his scruffy beard and those cute little glasses that make him look all sexy and intellectual...Oh God, I need to take another shower.

    • Logan: You have nothing to be sorry for... or ashamed of. 'Cause I know who you are.
      Max: Logan... you've got nothing to be sorry for or ashamed of. It's never been about you being able to walk, not for me.

    • Lydecker: You forgot who you work for! (the hoverdrone kills Sandoval) Consider yourself fired.

    • Original Cindy: Max needs a personal day.
      Normal: Take a week.
      Original Cindy: Damn. I didn't know this condition of yours was that bad.

    • Max: (yelling and running away) Normal... I need to take a personal day!

    • Rafer: Oh, uh, did, uh, someone order a large sausage?

    • Logan: Did you get it?
      Max: No, I just won a wet t-shirt contest. Course I got it.

    • Logan: (in Max's head) Can you make out with me while we wait?
      Max: What?
      Logan: Can you make out anything past the gate?

    • Madame X: I went to bat for you and I think that I managed to fend off a full procedural review, so say "thank you."(walks away.)
      Lydecker: Pissy little bitch.

    • Max: Are you sure about all this? Pierpont Lempkin and the Taliban after some star wars widget and a robotic arm somewhere? Next thing you're going to tell me aliens are involved.
      Logan: I wouldn't rule it out.

    • Sebastian: Could always ask your in-house cat burglar.
      Logan: She's not in the loop on this little project and I want to keep it that way.
      Sebastian: No reason she needs to know what the chip's for.
      Logan: Well, that's sneaky. I like it.

    • Original Cindy: You - drop and give me twenty.
      Max (while nodding): Okay.

    • Max: Oh, God! I'm in heat again!

    • Max: Take off your clothes.
      Soldier: Excuse me?
      Max: You heard me. Make it snappy.
      (The soldier takes off his helmet, his body armor and then his shirt)
      Max: Nice pecs. Over on the bed.

    • Max: Logan?! What are you doing here?!
      Logan: I don't know. It's your dream.

  • NOTES (0)


    • Logan: We have all the time in the world.
