Episode Summary

Am I My Sister's Keeper?
Overton's younger sister, Olivia, comes for a visit, and Overton is extremely protective of her. When Overton can't make their planned trip to the botanical gardens, Olivia suggests that she could go to a movie with Kyle (with whom she had been flirting). Overton catches them kissing in the hallway and throws a bucket of water on Kyle, ruining his suit. Meanwhile, Regine decides to become a vegetarian, and forces her beliefs on her roommates by throwing out all the meat. Khadijah plots to convert her back to meat-eating by holding a barbecue and giving her nothing to eat but celery. Regine does not give in, but she and her friends agree to respect each other's values. After a pep talk from Synclaire, Olivia finally musters the courage to ask her brother to stop treating her like a kid. Tag: Kyle douses Overton with water, then puts out fire with one drop. John (Henton) waves and says good night to audience.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (21)

      • Overton: I can't wait for you ladies to meet my sister Olivia. You're gonna love her. She's beautiful, intelligent, yet sensitive and innocent. Basically, a female version of me.
        Max: Is she bald?

      • Regine: Now, Obie, you rushed us up here. Where's your sister?
        Overton: Aww, she'll be here in about two hours. I just didn't want y'all to be late. I mean, you know how you ladies are.
        Max: Two hours? You only have 45 minutes worth of snacks here.

      • Khadijah: Regine, we can't all store fat in our heads like you.

      • Kyle (to Olivia): Perhaps you can tell us how we can save our ficus.
        Max: It's plastic. Dust it.

      • Regine: Tofu. That's my new trademark greeting. Like it?
        Khadijah, Kyle, & Synclaire: No.

      • Overton: She's beautiful and intelligent, yet sensitive and innocent. Basically, a female version of me.
        Max: Is she bald?

      • Khadijah: If you don't want to eat meat, I can respect that. But don't tell us how to live.
        Regine: Yeah, you're right. Besides, if I can't change the way you people dress, I'll never change the way y'all eat.

      • Olivia: Oh, and you must be Regine. That's a very classy ensemble, girl.
        Regine: Girl, this is just a little Donna Karan I threw together.
        Max: Yes. Looks real nice with Payless shoes.

      • Synclaire: Sometimes I get so mad at Overton I just want to shake him and kick him and lock him in the basement. But it's at those moments that I know how deep my love for him runs.

      • Overton: She idolized me. Called me "Obie Wan Kenobi."

      • Max: So Olivia, tell me. Was Kyle as much of a dork then as he is now?

      • Kyle: You know, my mother always told me you Joneses was crazy.

      • Khadijah: I thought this was another one of your little whims, like the time you waved that crystal over your food to dissolve the fat.
        Regine: Hey! It worked for Liz Taylor.

      • Olivia: I figured I'd hang out a while, spend time with my big brother. See if I could make out with a few more of your friends.
        Overton: Well, I know a couple of firemen. They're used to being hit by water.

      • Kyle: So I guess Max ate all the hot links already. I shouldn't be surprised. There were no bones to slow her down.

      • Synclaire: If you think he's such a pain, then why did you bother to come visit him in the first place?
        Olivia: Oh, I was getting on my parents' nerves, too.

      • Overton: Sorry it took me so long, but a water valve broke and damn near flooded the basement. I gotta go and get a couple of them three-quarter inch reducing Ls.
        Olivia: For a job that size, maybe you should use a two and a half inch reducing T instead.
        Overton: Dad would be so proud.

      • Olivia: At the end of the show, Overton would wrap a red velvet cape around Kyle's shoulders and help him off stage.
        Max: Oh my gosh, a red velvet cape! My God, you were Superdork!

      • Synclaire: I bet you didn't know a buckeye, is a nut-like seed from the horse chestnut variety.
        Kyle: Synclaire, there's a reason why that's a little known fact, baby. Nobody cares.

      • Regine: Did you know that when you die, you'll have ten pounds of undigested meat in your body?
        Khadijah: Well, I guess I won't die hungry then.

      • Regine: I refuse to kill myself slowly with those artery-killing poisons…Bring me some curly fries!
