Khadijah's college friend Jackie comes to town for an audition. She stays at the girls' apartment, and convinces Khadijah to give her a job at Flavor. Max is extremely jealous, and warns that Jackie is an opportunist who will hit Khadijah up for a loan. In college, Jackie convinced Max and Khadijah to start a sandwich business, only to drop it after two weeks. Khadijah is furious at Max for interfering in her affairs. A few days later, Jackie asks Khadijah to loan her money for a tattoo business. Khadijah turns her down, and orders her to return the 200 dollars she had borrowed from Synclaire. She tells Jackie that she needs to get her priorities straight and stop changing directions every few weeks. Jackie decides to go mooch off her parents. Just as Max boasts that Jackie never comes through, talk show host Arsenio Hall shows up at the apartment for the interview Jackie had promised to arrange. Overton buys several fish for the apartment. Kyle grows attached to them, and decides to get his own fish, Kyle Barker. When the new fish eats all the others, a guilt-ridden Kyle buys Overton a puppy, even though Kyle is allergic to dogs. Tag: Outtakes and photos with Arsenio.moreless

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Max: Khadijah, why don't you let me borrow this scarf? It would go great with my new blue suit.
        Khadijah: My grandmother gave me that scarf. Well, she would have if I hadn't just taken it.

      • Max: As far as she's concerned, Jackie can do no wrong.
        Synclaire: Oh, I know exactly what you're talking about. I feel the same way about LeVar Burton.

      • Jackie: I don't want to come between you two.
        Khadijah: Somebody better before I kill her.

      • Kyle: Besides, I didn't want any mangy, flea-bitten animal running around the apartment.
        Max: Too much competition?

      • Max: And talk about a mooch. Whoo!
        Regine: Now if that ain't the pot calling the kettle a sponge.

      • Synclaire: Excuse me, Khadijah. Can I borrow fifty dollars?
        Khadijah: Are the words "cash machine" written across my forehead?

      • Khadijah: What are you doing here? I thought you were mad.
        Max: Oh, so now I'm supposed to starve because you mistreated me.

      • Max (playing dumb): Jackie's gone?
        Khadijah: Like Tammy Talk-A-Lot didn't call you the minute I left to take her to the station.
        Synclaire: Actually, I called her half an hour earlier. I kind of saw it coming.

      • Khadijah: Jackie, first of all, no. Secondly, what the hell? Thirdly, what you drinking?

      • Synclaire: Now when you begin to staple, be careful. Khadijah hates it when you interrupt the workday to go to the hospital.

      • Regine: Do you really think Jackie can get you an interview with Arsenio Hall and me an interview with Blair Underwood?
        Khadijah: That's not what she said.
        Regine: That's what I want.

      • Overton: I gotta go check on the little tykes.
        Jackie: Oh, you have kids?
        Overton: No, fish. They're just like kids, only smaller and wetter.

      • Synclaire: I loved this movie.
        Overton: Yeah, me too. I mean, the kid was good, but the whale's performance was a virtual tour-de-force.

      • Overton: Kyle's allergic to anything with fur.
        Kyle: Yeah. Like Max's upper lip.

      • Max: When I see my best friend making a fool of herself, I have to speak on it.
        Regine: Tell me about it. I have this friend at work, April. Talk about someone who should not wear horizontal stripes. I mean, she isn't a stupid woman, just a pear-shaped one. So finally, I had to sit her down one day and I said, 'April, you're a pear!'
