Episode Summary

Hot Fun in the Wintertime
Synclaire wins a trip for two to the Bahamas from a radio trivia contest, but cannot decide who should accompany her. Khadijah and Overton irritate her so much with their petty bickering and attempts to manipulate her that it nearly drives her crazy. Regine advises her to stand up for herself and not let the duo's behavior affect her. Synclaire becomes so fed up that she tells Overton and Khadijah that she is taking Regine on the trip. At her beach-themed party (selected because the heat was out of control), Regine bows out and urges Khadijah and Overton to stop pressuring Synclaire. Regine claims her act is one of genuine kindness, but a man had actually asked her to go to Aspen the same week as Synclaire's trip. Synclaire selects Overton, and Khadijah is proud that her cousin is growing up (because she dumped her for a man). Kyle and Max continually play practical jokes on one another to screw up each other's love lives. Max believes Kyle has gone too far when he invites Goldie to the party. Kyle suggests that their hostility might be a sign that there is something else between them; but when Max seems to consider this, he shouts, "Gotcha!" Tag: Kyle gets the law involved in his dispute with Max.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • After Synclaire wins the contest, she hangs up immediately, rather than staying on the line and getting details on where to pick up her prize. She hasn't even given her name.

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Khadijah: We're sweating like pigs in here. Tell us something we don't know.
        Overton: Um, pigs don't sweat.

      • Max: She bought that? She is so easy.
        Kyle: I know! Damn.

      • Kyle: I got two words for you: don't sleep.
        Max: And I got two words for you.

      • Synclaire: Am I on the radio?
        Khadijah: That sounded like Synclaire.
        DJ: Where are you calling from?
        Synclaire: My bedroom.
        Khadijah, Kyle, Regine and Max: That's her.

      • Kyle: Synclaire, baby. This is your chance to give me the vacation I've always dreamed about. A week of blissful peace and quiet. Please take her. (Points at Max)

      • Regine: We're up against a first cousin and a boyfriend. We ain't going.
        Max: Now even the leprechaun is making sense. Must be the heat.

      • Regine: I am about to do something incredibly generous.
        Khadijah: Here we go. Another 1% discount at the boutique.

      • Khadijah (to Regine): You're giving up something for someone else?
        Overton: Yeah. I'm a little dubious myself.

      • Kyle: Max, why do we keep going at each other like this?
        Max: It's some sort of twisted compulsion. You know, you're like a carton of month-old milk. You know it's bad, but you just have to smell it.
        Kyle: I know what you mean. You're like a wart.
        Max: How so?
        Kyle: You're ugly.
        Max: You know, your wit is devastating.
        Kyle: You know what's really going on here. Is it possible that perhaps underneath all the layers of contempt and animosity and bitterness that we feel for each other that there lies some small bit of respect? Perhaps even--dare I say it--some affection? (Max seems to ponder this) Gotcha!

      • Overton: Let me leave you with this. There once was a young boy from Cleveland who never traveled beyond the corner store. But every night, he read books about faraway places and vowed that he, one day, would see the world.
        Synclaire: And that young boy was you.
        Overton: No. But I'd really like to go.

      • Kyle: I love the way Hitchcock builds suspense. You never see it coming. (Stares at Max) Never.

      • Synclaire (to Overton and Khadijah): Stop looking at me like I'm a pork chop.

      • Regine: How is anybody gonna enjoy himself if it's too hot for me to wear my new catsuit?

      • Regine: It's 105 degrees in here. One of my wigs melted.

      • Khadijah: Let me 'splain something to you, Lucy. I am family. And fam means you take care of them when they're sick, you help them when they're down, and you take them to the Bahamas!
