  • This was really well thought out

    Joan dates a married man, unbeknownst to her-and the comedy ensues! Frank Anderson is a client of Joan's whom she starts seeing more than the legal briefs of. Frank's wife followed him to Joan's, and then tries to confront Joan at work. Maya covers for her (great scene) and Joan finds out the truth. She breaks up with Frank later in 847.However, at the same time-Toni is taking her 'married' boyfriend to Joan's on her lunch breaks. Once this info is found out-Joan beleives it's Toni's man who has the stalker wife issues. Only there's one problem-Toni's boyfriend lied about being married. So, Joan is caught once again at her house with Frank after she takes him back. She comes clean with the wife-who chases Frank's cheatin' a** outta the house with a sculpture. The twist that was added with Toni's boyfriend was pretty cool-double cross I guess you'd call it. Still very funny.moreless
  • One of the best!

    This episode was great. It started off with a great plot (Joan finding a man) and subplot (Toni sleeping with a married man). Then, as things went on, a lot of confusion, anger, and revenge came to the surface. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns, and I also like how Toni and Lynn's subplots were tied into the main plot at the end. It was just clever how the writers combined every aspect of the episode to produce a grand finale with a surprise ending. This episode is one of my favorites of all-time for this series.moreless
