  • Big hips Marcus just can't seem to get the hint that Joan don't want him-fabulous episode.

    8.5
    Joan has had quite a few disastrous relationships-but this one might be one of the worst. Her new Boyfriend Marcus, a clingy, overbearing, hippy man who won't take a hint. Joan tells him that she's moving to Peru , to break up with him gently, but he takes that to mean they need to spend even more time together. After Joan 'backslides' once with him, she finally breaks it off in the end.moreless

    This episode was very witty. However, I kept wondering why there were no references to Marcus' hips, like in the previous episode.



    Favorite quote:

    "When black people wanna get their hustle on, it's a felony. When white people do it, it's called Wall Street."



    I also liked how each of Joan's friends kept trying to turn Marcus off of Joan, especially how William told him that Joan was a man.
