Episode Summary

EDIT
Great Expectations
AIRED:
Khadijah is disgusted by the girls' pathetic social life, so she suggests that they go out to a club and meet some men. Regine announces that she can get them onto the guest list at Club Zina. She dons her finest wig and "one of a kind" red dress, and is disgusted to spot two other women wearing the same dress. She douses them with drinks, but later gets a taste of her own medicine. Kyle and Overton have to sneak in the back door because the doorman dislikes Kyle, and Kyle has no luck with the female bar patrons. Overton convinces Synclaire to dance, and they show off a series of moves not seen since 1984. Max is hounded by a smarmy man with a gold tooth, while Khadijah is bored out of her skull. Her attitude improves when she meets Regine's friend Ty, the DJ. He gives her the chance to take the mic, and she brings down the house with "I Will Survive." Tag: Waiting for the call from Ty. Music: "You Are Everything" (Stylistics), sung by T.C. Carson; "Brick House" (Commodores), sung by the girls; "I Will Survive" (Gloria Gaynor), performed by Queen Latifahmoreless

  • It reminds everyone about that one night in the club that we would all like to forget.

    My favorite quote is said when; Kyle and Overton try to sneak in the club. Kyle tells Overton that he doesn’t want to mess up his shoes. After finding out that they are not real, Overton teases Kyle by chanting: "Kyle got on fake shoes, Kyle got on fake shoes."

    • Max: Remember how we use to give fake names to the guys who would try to talk to us?
      Khadijah: I was Alexus.
      Max: (with a thick Brooklyn accent) I was Dominique, right?
      Synclaire: Ooh, tonight I'll be Shaquan. Yes. That suits me. Yes.

    • Khadijah: This is pathetic. I mean, no dates, no plans, no men. We gotta get out.
      Max: I don't live here. I am out.

    • Max: Wow, looks like we gotta make a choice this week. That Barnaby Jones from last Saturday wraps up tonight. And there's a fire sale on the Home Shopping channel. Ooh on What's Happenin', ReRun auditions from the Gong Show. Hand me the remote Khadijah.
      Khadijah: No, no, no. I am not going out like that. I am not gonna sit here and watch you get all worked up over a chubby brother in a beret.

    • Woman on TV: Brad, maybe this isn't a good time to tell you, but, you're brother's had a sex change. And I'm a lesbian.
      Synclaire: Hey, hey, hey.
      Khadijah: You know that's game. That ain't nothing but TV for you.
      Male TV announcer: Later today on Oprah, "Lonely Women Who Wates Their Lives Watching Television".
      (everyone gets up and walks away)

    • Max: Wait a minute. You mean, if we go, Kyle gets dissed? Suddenly I feel like dancing. (Laughs and starts dancing) Go. Go. Yes.
      Kyle: You know, you are colder than your bed at night. But that's okay, I don't need you to get into a club. Kyle Barker's got more juice than Minute Maid.
      Overton: Yeah. And Overton Jones has more pull than the elastic on a fat lady's drawers.

    • Max: I don't know. The club scene is tired. There's nothin' but a bunch of brothers there with beepers and gold teeth talkin' about "Baby, I'd like to put you on a plate and sop you up with a biscuit."
      (Kyle and Rgine laugh)
      Overton: Boy, if I had a nickel for everytime I heard Kyle say that...

    • (Talking about going out)
      Syclaire: Ooh, what about a jazz club?
      Max: Nah, I hate the saxophone. Sounds like a man begging.
      Kyle: Like you'd know.
      Syclaire: Hey, what about Coney Island?
      Khadijah: Sure, I haven't been mugged in a while.
      Kyle: You women are so indecisive. Men on the other hand move with a swift deliberate purpose. It goes back to prehistoric times when we men were the hunters and you women did what we told ya to do. And ya liked it. (Khadijah takes his chinese food) What?
      Overton: Well, brother got guts, you gotta give him that.

    • Khadijah: And you sit here studyin' that TV Guide like it's Playgirl.
      Max: Well, you have your fun and I have mine, okay?

    • (They all gather around the TV to watch a soap opera)
      Commercial on TV: Later today on Opera lonely woman who spend their lives watching television.
      (All of them scatter away from the TV)

    • Khadijah: We gotta get out!
      Max: I don't live here. I am out.

    • Kyle: You take the ugly one.
      Overton: Which one is the ugly one?
      Kyle: The one that says no.

    • Synclaire: What was wrong with him?
      Khadijah: His breath got here five minutes before he did.

    • Kyle: You know, your eyes were speaking to me from across the room.
      Woman: And you didn't understand 'Go away'?
      Overton: That's the best no I heard all night.

    • Synclaire: I'm not really good at dancing in public. I mean, ever since the bump went out.

    • Regine: Khadijah, you cannot expect fun to just come running up to you. Unless you're me, and you're not.

    • Khadijah: This is the saddest thing I've ever seen! Two rhythmless people talking about how they can't dance.

    • Max: Remember how we used to give fake names to the guys that tried to talk to us?
      Khadijah: I was Alexis.
      Max: I was Dominique, right?
      Synclaire: Ooh. Tonight I'll be...Shaquan.

    • Synclaire: Do you think when they order American take-out in China they have trouble using forks?
