Episode Summary

EDIT
Baby I'm Back... Again
AIRED:
Scooter returns to New York, but receives a chilly reception from Khadijah, who is furious at him for failing to call her for months. They are arguing on the roof when Scooter suddenly flashes a ring and proposes. Khadijah accepts immediately. Both quickly begin to experience doubts about the upcoming nuptials. While at the jewelry store to size the ring, they realize that they only got engaged because they were afraid of losing one another. They were not ready for marriage before Scooter's departure, and spending a year apart certainly did not strengthen their relationship. They call off the engagement and decide to go back to being friends. Regine, in the midst of a dating dry spell, follows her friends' advice and nixes a date with carpet cleaner Cleophus Wade when he asks her out over the phone. She is disgusted to learn that Cleophus is handsome and wealthy (he owns the company). He thanks her for rejecting him, as this pushed him into reconciling with his ex-girlfriend, whom he takes to expensive restaurants and lavishes with gifts. Tag: Regine is a little overeager for blind date with doctor.moreless

      • Regine: For your information, we are having a beauty night.
        Khadijah: It ain't working.

      • Synclaire: Oh my God! You're pregnant. Okay. It's okay. And no one needs to know but just us, okay? Woo-woo-woo. Woo-woo-woo.
        Khadijah: Bless you, Synclaire. Now the townspeople won't stone me.

      • Scooter: We're gonna go upstairs and call our parents.
        Synclaire: Oh, there's a phone right here.

      • (Max looks at boomerang.)
        Max: You know, thrown just right, you could take somebody's head off with this thing.

      • Scooter: One-hundred percent human hair from the Philippines.
        Regine: Oh, y'all. She used conditioner!

      • Max: Let's just say the last time Regine had a date, Hugh Grant didn't have to buy his.

      • Max (to Scooter): You are one smooth talker, huh? I didn't think you'd come back engaged. In fact, I didn't think one of you'd come back at all.

      • Scooter: Khadijah, will you marry me?
        Khadijah (squeaking): Yes!

      • Scooter: Khadijah, I was wondering, could we go someplace and talk?
        Khadijah: We could go up on the roof.
        Scooter: It's kind of cold up there, isn't it?
        Khadijah: Well, I've got a feeling anyplace we talk is gonna be a little chilly.

      • (Khadijah opens door to see Scooter.)
        Max: Oh, let me guess. 'Baby I'm back...again!'

      • Regine: The ring turned you, didn't it? Two carats can be very persuasive. Shoot, three carats and I'd marry dang near anybody!

      • Max: How can you just trust him like this? What happened to all of that lovely hatred that you were developing for him?

      • Synclaire: Oh, I'm so excited. A February wedding. The snow will be falling all around us. You'll be able to see your breath as you recite your vows.
        Khadijah: Synclaire, the wedding is going to be inside.
        Synclaire: Oh. That's nice, if you want everything room temperature.

      • Kyle: I've only got two questions. Is it formal? And why the hell are you and Khadijah getting married?

      • (Doorbell rings.)
        Max: Take heart, Regine. Maybe that's the Roto-Rooter man, and you can throw herself at him.

      • Overton: Max, what's the legal angle on this dispute between Roadrunner and the coyote?
        Max: Well, he could charge the Roadrunner with battery. Trouble is, he's got no witnesses. He's a known buyer of explosives. The bird could always plead self-defense.

      • Regine: Now look at us. Manless.
        Synclaire: Excuse you. We have men.
        Max: That's right. I got somebody that can look at these corns and still smile.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title of this episode is a reference to Scooter's first return in season 1 episode "What's Next." When Scooter first enters the scene in that episode, he appears with flowers and utters the words "Baby I'm Back!"
