Episode Summary

He's the One
Regine interviews for a job coordinating a charity event for handsome entrepreneur Dexter Knight. She is stunned to find herself dropping all pretenses and being completely honest with Dexter. Regine believes that she may be hearing wedding bells soon, but comes down to earth when she realizes she can't make the budget for the party. She is forced to cut corners to pull off the event. Khadijah and Max go to the party, using passes from the public defender's office. Several old men hit on Khadijah because she reminds them of a young Pearl Bailey. She later leaves with New York Jets wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson. When Max knocks a glass of wine off a tray, Regine dives in front of Dexter and absorbs the damage. She confesses her budget problems, and admits she is trying to impress him. He kisses her. When everyone gets on Max's case about not giving Overton and Synclaire a wedding gift, she presents them with a blank check. However, she lays a guilt trip on them by saying she will donate any extra money to the charity. Music: "Hello Dolly" (Pearl Bailey), performed by Queen Latifahmoreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Regine: I bought enough food for a party, not a country.
        Khadijah: Relax. I'm here to control her.
        Regine: Liar! You're here to meet men.
        Khadijah: Well, that too. And it's time to shop.

      • Regine: "If I tell Dexter I can't make the budget for the party, he'll think I'm an amateur. Or worse...a scheming diva."
        Khadijah: "Regine, you are a scheming diva."

        Khadijah: "Okay, Regine, I would never give anybody this advice ever. Lie, girl! Lie! You dig deep into that diva bag of tricks, pull out the biggest, baddest trick and go get that man!"

      • Regine: Thank you very much, Mr. Right...Knight!

      • Regine: "Max? Girl, please. Now you know that cow is too cheap to buy a gift."

        Khadijah: "Don't you remember that Christmas when she wrapped up our toaster and gave it to you?"
        Synclaire: "That's right. And there was still a Pop Tart in it, girl."

        Overton: "As many times as she rolled up on the buffet, she should have gave us three or four gifts. I mean, Khadijah, the girl took home a ham!"

        Khadijah: "You can't go at Max head-on. You'll get nothing. You've got to handle this delicately." (Max enters.) "Max, I can't believe you're too damn cheap to buy them a wedding gift!"

        Regine (to Max): "Hey, Shawshank!"

        Regine (to Mabel): "Good looks and a sense of humor. Aren't you a find?"

        Dexter: "Thanks to Oprah's chef and a few million miles on the treadmill, I managed to shed a few pounds."
        Regine: "Looks like you held on to the right ones."

      • Dexter: "Before I lost the weight, the closest thing I ever got to a compliment was, 'Damn, man. You can really put away that fudge.'"

        Regine: "I'm telling you, it was like Romeo and Juliet, like Maria and Tony in West Side Story."
        Max: "Julia Roberts in 'Pretty Woman.'"
        Regine: "Yes." (Turns back angrily and shoves Max.) "She was a hooker!"
        Max: "Okay, so she had a real career and you don't."

        Regine: "You know, maybe Regine Hunter was meant to die an old maid."
        Max: "Why should she be any different than the rest of us?"
