Episode Summary

In Your Dreams
Khadijah dreams of kissing Scooter in a hot tub. Max forces her to join her at a New Age retreat, where she hopes to find the purpose of her existence. Synclaire tags along. Khadijah is bewildered when the hot tub at the facility resembles the one in her dream, and is shocked to find Scooter at the retreat. When she tells him about her dream, he becomes distant. He later joins her in the hot tub and explains that his girlfriend dumped him because his heart wasn't in the relationship. He is still hung up on Khadijah, but cannot stand to just be friends. Khadijah admits she loves Scooter, but isn't sure this is enough. They agree that work is no longer their top priority, and decide to build a new relationship. Max discovers that she was a man in all of her past lives. She resolves that she must have a child, leading to much mockery from Khadijah and Synclaire. Overton and Synclaire lease Kyle's apartment to Roni De Santos, a local DJ. Tripp confesses that he once slept with Roni after winning a date with her in a contest, only to be rejected. Overton forces the two to spend time together. Roni tells Tripp that she pushed him away because she was afraid of being fired. However, she is now dating someone else.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Khadijah: Roni D from WKNW is moving in, and nobody ran it past me?
      Overton: Well, we also had pancakes for breakfast. Should we have cleared that with you too, Mother?

    • Max (while hypnotized): "Toro! Toro! Toro!"
      Synclaire: "Olé! Olé!"
      Max: "Señorita. Oh, oh! Que bonita."
      Synclaire: "Well, muchas gracias."
      Max: "¡Que bonita!"
      Synclaire: "All right. All right, ring the bell! Vishnu, ring the bell! Ring the bell!"

      Synclaire: "Max, now we know why you're so good at arm wrestling. Your cosmic cup runneth over with men."

      Max: "So what? You ran into an old boyfriend. Big freaking deal. I found out that I used to be a 300-pound Japanese man in diapers."

      Synclaire: "We're talking fate, Khadijah. The universe wants you crazy kids to be together. So jump in that tub of love and get your cosmic groove on, okay?"

      Khadijah: "I'm going to check Scooter. I mean, whatever happens with him can't be as scary as the mumbo jumbo you and Pinhead here are freakin' pushing."

      Overton: "Oh boy, do I feel foolish? I forgot about the brownstone's new 'take-out-the-trash' dress code."

      Overton: "I particularly enjoyed that little Tommy Hilfiger number you wore down to the laundry room. Not to mention the silk dashiki you were sporting to pick up your mail. Either you've been possessed by the spirit of Kyle, or this little fashion parade is all for the benefit of--rowrrgh--Roni."

      Overton: "First Kyle and Max, now these two. Will this brownstone ever know peace?"

    • Khadijah: I ain't going to no kookfest, yo. I'm spending the weekend right here on this couch, having freaky dreams that scare the hell out of me.

    • Vishnu: "Perhaps there's something you have yet to experience."
      Max: "PMS?"

      Khadijah: "What are you doing here? First you throw me out of your cabin, then you show up in my dreams. And why are you still so damn cute?"

      Scooter: "My lady just dumped me. Said my heart wasn't in it. She was right. I can't get you out of my head, girl."
      Khadijah: "Well, is that such a bad thing?"
      Scooter: "Hell, yeah. I asked you to go to California, you passed. I ask you to marry me, you said, 'Nah, we're better off being friends.' I don't want to lose you, so I pretend it's cool. Khadijah...I just can't be your friend."

      Max: "Okay. Listen up. Kyle walked out on me and left me alone with all this love to give. I threw myself into my work, only to find out that I had lost my passion for the law. My search for fulfillment led me here, where I found out that in all my past lives, I was a man. And all this got me to thinking. What's the one thing I couldn't do as a man that I could do as a woman?"
      Synclaire: "I'll take 'wear a push-up bra,' for a hundred, Jim."
      Max: "Have a baby."

    • Khadijah: "Damn. Scooter was just about to kiss me."
      Max: "Yeah? Well, pillows don't have lips, baby!"

      Roni: "You live here too? I mean, uh, hi! How are you?"
      Tripp: "What was the question?"
      Roni: "I don't know."
      Overton: "Just a guess, bro, but, two seen each other naked?"

      Synclaire: "Max trying to be a mommy! Hey, maybe you can lay an egg!"

    • (After Max says she wants to have a baby, Khadijah and Synclaire laugh hysterically.)
      Synclaire: "Don't you need a man for that? That's how it works!"
