Episode Summary

Abstinence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
Max and Regine are surprised to learn that Synclaire has yet to sleep with Overton, even though they took the vacation to the Bahamas together. They encourage her to take the next step, but Synclaire is uncertain. She and Overton finally agree to have a romantic evening at his apartment the following night, as Kyle is out of town. After they experience a series of mishaps (including Overton's allergy to Synclaire's perfume), Synclaire admits that she is paralyzed with fear. She tells him that she is just not ready, and that she is feeling too much pressure from her friends. They decide to wait. Khadijah refuses to consider that her string of bad luck may have been caused by a broken chain letter. Tag: Khadijah ecstatic over accidents, unaware that chain letter was returned. Music: "Touch Me" by Samantha Fox; "Me So Horny" by 2 Live Crew; "Strangers in the Night" (Frank Sinatra), hummed by John Hentonmoreless

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Max: Your date's gonna need a flea dip after a night with you.
        Kyle: You didn't.
        (Regine starts laughing hard)

      • Max: Somebody oughta create a greeting card for the first time you get with your man. You know what I'm saying? They have cards for every other occasion.
        Regine: How about this? "Don't worry; it gets better."
        Max: Okay. Or, or, or...alright. "We knew you could do it / We had no doubt / Now go to your man and wear him out!"

      • Synclaire: Obie and I have been looking forward to this for a long time. After we do it, what will we have to look forward to?
        Max: Doing it again.

      • Synclaire: It's been a long time. What if I've forgotten how?
        Max: Oh, no. Listen. It's like riding a bicycle over cobblestones: you never forget how, and it's kind of fun.

      • Synclaire: Obie, I think that everything is going just fine. And then I got this idea somehow that having sex would make our relationship even better. But this just doesn't seem to be working.
        Overton: Maybe we should've did it in the basement.

      • (About the chain letter)
        Regine: You'll be happy you did this.
        Khadijah: I'll be happy when your mother receives this.
        Regine: Who do you think sent it to me?

      • Synclaire: Her skirt got caught in the train door.
        Regine: And you were wearing that ugly slip? It's the power of the chain letter.

      • Khadijah: You're not gonna mail that thing, are you?
        Max: Okay, check this out, all right? Bad things come in threes. I've already slept with Kyle and lost my job. I am not taking my chances that I might sleep with Kyle again.

      • Synclaire: Here's my favorite memento.
        Khadijah: What is it?
        Synclaire: A splinter. I got it the time that Overton first said those three special words: "Hold this plywood."
