Episode Summary

I'm Ready for My Close-Up
After Regine brags about her influence on Palo Alto, Synclaire drops by the set unexpectedly in the hopes that Regine can help her land a part. Regine is humiliated when none of the actors are aware of her existence, and the director refers to her as "the odor-eater girl." Regine apologizes for lying; but explains that, although her work is not glamorous, she thoroughly enjoys it. Synclaire agrees to keep her true status a secret. When one of the extras gets fired, Regine slips Synclaire into a scene as the Grim Reaper. Meanwhile, Khadijah asks Max to pen a column about the legal profession for Flavor. Max objects when Khadijah edits the article, prompting Khadijah to note that Max cannot deal with criticism. It is only Overton's editing skills that stave off a feud.

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Synclaire: You just need to stop worrying about what people say about you. I mean, look at me. I don't give a damn what people say.
        Regine: Clearly.
        Synclaire: What? Are people saying bad things about me?!
        Regine: No, no, no! No. Not everybody.

      • Regine: Great. If there's anything I don't need, it's pity from someone who buys her clothes and groceries from the same place.

      • Kyle: You have to use simple, down-to-earth words. That way, your article will be less odious and pernicious and far more mellifluous.
        Overton: Kyle, nobody cares that you got 1420 on your S.A.T.'s.

      • Khadijah: You are stubborn, hard-headed, and you reject other people's opinions even when you asked for them.
        Max: Khadijah...
        Khadijah: What?
        Max: Who asked you?

      • Max: Overton, your thoughts.
        Overton: Well, um, you're cheap. You're greedy. Shallow. And you have a really foul mouth for a lady. But these are all things I've grown to love.

      • Kyle: Maxine, how many times do I have to tell you? Slower can be better.

      • Synclaire: Regine, hook me up on your soap, girl.
        Max: Synclaire, Regine's nothing but a sewing machine with a pulse.

      • Synclaire: Ooh, I'm mad as beans!

      • Khadijah: You're a prima donna with a chip on your shoulder and a ketchup stain on your shirt. Made you look.

      • Khadijah: 'Wealthy and well-known' sounds a little corny.
        Max: Starting two words with the same letter is catchy and contagious. It's resonant and it's rhythmic.
        Khadijah: It's funky, and I'm fixing it.

      • Khadijah: I need you to write an editorial for me about the legal system.
        Max: All right, listen. I'll do it for a free lunch. And my picture at the top of the page.
        Kyle: I don't know, Khadijah. That lunch could cost you thousands.

      • Kyle: I said the same thing five minutes ago. Excuse me for being sesquipedalian.
        Khadijah: Kyle, tell me you know what that means!
        Kyle: Heh, heh. Look it up.
