Episode Summary

High Anxiety
The Phoenix Suns come to town, and Max convinces Khadijah to visit the team's locker room and ask out Cedric Ceballos, with whom she has often flirted during interviews. Khadijah becomes so nervous over the date that she gets a splitting headache. Max tries to get her some aspirin, but accidentally gives her four herbal tranquilizers. (Regine had a supply so that she could give half a tablet to nervous brides.) Khadijah goes completely loopy at the restaurant, and refuses Max and Regine's attempts to help her. When they try to explain to Cedric, they are called groupies and thrown out. Tripp does not endear himself to the girls with his candor about Khadijah's situation. An old man comes by Overton and Synclaire's new apartment in the hopes of finding the old tenant, Mrs. Porchnik. Overton and Synclaire are afraid to break his heart by telling him that she has died. Max later tells him the truth (quite callously), and the man explains that Mrs. Porchnik owed him 500 dollars from a poker game. Tag: John tries four different punchlines before getting desired reaction.moreless

      • Khadijah (talking to Max about her nerves and getting ready for her date): I don't wanna wear these damn nose-bleed stilletos!
        Regine: Nose bleeds are temporary, loneliness if forever.

      • Khadijah: I drank so much that I don't even remember doing it.
        Regine: Don't be so hard on yourself girl, it was those tranquilizers that did you in.
        Khadijah: What tranquilizers?
        (Regine looks towards Max and Max shakes her head)
        Max: That's right girl, you were pretty drunk.
        Khadijah: Nah, nah, it's all comin' back to me now. (Points at Regine) That was your face under the raccoon coat. Ya'll drugged me.
        Max: Is that really relevant?

      • (Looking out a bottom window, seeing people walking by, but only seeing their feet)
        Max: So this is how Regine sees the world.
        Regine: Those are feet Max, you know, those things Kyle used to walk out on you.

      • Overton: Wait a minute, now, how all that food gonna help Khadijah's hangover?
        Max: I'm much less cranky when I'm full.

      • Regine: Max, I keep my herbal tranquilizers in there.
        Max: Tranquilizers?
        Regine: I offer them to my brides, half if they're nervous and a whole one if their husbands are ugly.

      • Khadijah: It took Overton a year and a half just to ask you to the flea market.
        Syclaire: Good point. Stick your tongue down his throat the minute that you see him girl.

      • Synclaire: What if Mrs. Porchnik was his one true love and he's travelled here to find her? What if no mountain's high enough, no valley's low enough, no river's wide enough to keep him away from her? Yeah. What if he touched her in the morning?
        Overton: No more Miss Ross before bedtime, okay?

      • Overton: We're a team now. And if one of us fumbles the ball, the other one picks it up, runs it to the end zone and does the victory dance in front of the whole dawg pound.
        Synclaire: You still miss the Browns, don't you?

      • Regine: Listen Ira, you are a man living with women. There will be moments when you really don't belong. This is two of those moments put together.
        Tripp: Oh, I understand, I grew up with three sisters. So let me get up outta here before one of ya'll start chasin' me with a hotcomb.

      • Khadijah: I don't flirt with him. I just use my people skills to get him to open up. Okay, it doesn't hurt that I carry a little tape recorder in my cleave. (Max and Khadijah laugh)
        Regine: Khadijah, God did not bless you with boobage so that you could carry office supplies. Girl, you've got to use them things to get a date!
        Khadijah: I guess I could approach him about a follow-up interview.
        Regine: No, you will not! That's the old Khadijah. Now the new Khadijah needs to put down the notepad and ask the brother out.
        Max: The new Khadijah needs to get some and tell us all the dirty details.
        Khadijah: The new Khadijah sounds like a big-mouth hooker.

      • Khadijah: Okay. Look, I got to go talk to the coat.

      • Regine: Groupies? There's that word again!
