Episode Summary

Just Friends?
Khadijah's old friend Scooter comes to town, and the two begin spending a lot of time together. Although Khadijah insists that they are only friends, she ends up spending the night with him. When Scooter asks her to come out to his Los Angeles home for the weekend, Khadijah's friends offer conflicting advice. Max believes she should go for it, while Regine warns that she could destroy her friendship. Khadijah decides that she isn't ready to take such a big step, and asks for time to re-evaluate the relationship. Overton helps Synclaire study for her accounting exam in the hopes of making time with her, despite the fact that he knows nothing about the subject. He is discouraged when Synclaire (following Khadijah's plight) announces that she would never date a friend. Tag: Khadijah receives flowers from an unexpected source. Music: "Theme from The Little Rascals," hummed by T.C. Carson, John Henton and Cress Williamsmoreless

      • Kyle: A Playgirl from 1987. Talk about a bunch your horny packrats. So, wait, tell me, why ya'll holdin' on to this?
        Khadijah, Max and Regine: Page 54.
        Kyle: It's ripped out.
        Khadijah: All right, Max, what'd you do with page 54?
        Max: I don't have it.
        Khadijah: Regine?
        Regine: Like I need pictures.
        Khadijah: Somebody took page 54.
        Syclaire: I'm so ashamed.

      • Max: Bring me back a doggie bag.
        Kyle: Max, they named a whole bag after you, huh?

      • Regine: This is why you never have a man. You're obsessed with revenge.
        Max: It's not revenge; it's prevenge. Getting to them before they get to you.

      • Max: Personally, I think you should sleep with him again, and it will all become clear. And if not, you're set for the next six months.
        Kyle: So this is what happens? You hens sit around and cluck about some poor brother's fate? Don't you think this is the kind of think that should be kept in private?
        Khadijah: You're right. Get out.

      • Synclaire: Don't mind me. I'm just opening my mind to the accounting fundamentals.
        Khadijah: Well, they'll have plenty of room to play in there.

      • Regine: The people down at the sheleter are gonna love me when they see what I am donating.
        (Max picks up a flashy corset)
        Max: Regine, these people are poor, not tasteless.
        Regine: Well, then maybe you should take it. (Hands her Kleenex) And here's a box of tissue to fill it.
        Synclaire: Ooh. Look, my old bag of marbles. I lost these ages ago.
        Khadijah (To Max): Nah, too easy yo.
        (Max and Khadijah laugh)

      • Max: I have a very strict policy about dating friends of friends. I just don't do it. I never have and I never will.
        Regine: You little liar. You just dated my man last month.
        Max: Damn right. And I'd do it again!

      • Khadijah: I'm goin' out with Scooter.
        Max: Whoo! You two havin' a great time aren't you?
        Khadijah: I always do. Just chillin' with my buddy. No mind games, no manners and no makeup.
        Max: Oh, hell you can be ugly with us.
        Khadijah: It's different. It's like going out with a guy, but not going out with a guy. You know?
        Max: Are you saying he's got a little sugar in his tank?
        Khadijah: No. I'm sayin' he's just a friend.
        Max: Oh, well why go out with a guy if it's not a date? That's like takin' a horse for a walk.

      • Synclaire: What's the difference between a temporary account and a permanent account?
        Overton: Well, a temporary account is good for a minute, but a permanent account is something that you can depend on. Like a rock, see? It's there to help you through the bad times, and laugh with you through the good times. You know, always faithful. Always true. Like a good friend.

      • Overton: Let's see if I understand this situation. A young man that you've known all your life has fallen in love with you, wants to buy you things, and take you away? Hell, you ain't got to be a handyman to figure this one out.
        Synclaire: Sounds like all assets and no liabilities to me. Hey, you can use this stuff in real life!
        Khadijah: Why'd he have to gimme that ticket?
        Max: They always know how to ruin things. Everything is going along good and then: bam! Flowers.

      • Overton: Accounting isn't as romantic as I thought.

      • Khadijah: Did anybody call?
        Synclaire: Just Regine, Max and the printer.
        Khadijah: What did they want?
        Synclaire: Well, Regine wanted to know if Terrence called, and Max wanted to know if Terrence called. And the printer didn't know anything about Terrence, so I took the liberty of filling him in, and he said, 'Good luck dating a friend.'

      • (Khadijah comes home in the morning from her date and tries to sneak in)
        Syclaire: You got some explainin' to do, Miss Missy.
        Regine: Out all night with Scooter? What's goin' on?
        Max (Rushes in the door): Freeze! Ha ha! I saw you come home, girl. Where you been?
        Khadijah: Damn, do any of ya'll have lives? I was out with Terrance.
        Regine: Terrance? What's up with you calling Scooter Terrance?
        Khadijah: I did not.
        Syclaire: Yes, you did. And if you don't mind me saying so, you do have that certian glow.
        Regine: You got busy with Scooter?
        Khadijah: I did not! I got busy with Terrance. (All start yellin' at her but Max smiles and claps) I don't know what happened. He looked the same. He smelled the same. Next thing I know, he kissed me, and my clothes fell off!
        Max: You did the deed.
        Syclaire: Was it a good deed?
        Khadijah: That's the worst part.
        Syclaire: It was bad?
        Khadijah: It was great! I mean, I may have wrecked a 20 year friendship over a few hours of fun.
        Max: A few hours? Okay, I'd say that's a fair trade.
        Khadijah: I can't believe I lost control like that. I'll never be able to look him in the eye again.
        Syclaire: What do you mean?
        Regine: You can't sleep with your friend and expect things to be the same.
        Syclaire: And why not?
        Regine: It's like the birth canal, once you go through you can't go back.
        Syclaire: Oh, been there, done that. Yeah.
        Max: It's no big deal. I've had sex with friends before.
        Khadijah: Really? Who?
        Max: I can't remember their names. We don't talk anymore.

      • Scooter: So how you doin', girl? As fine as you look?
        Khadijah: Well, no one can do that well.

      • Scooter: I must say it looks a lot better than them clothespins you used to put in them pigtails.
        Khadijah: Pretending like she had long hair.
        Regine: Hey! I looked good.
        Khadijah: You looked like Buckwheat's sister.

      • Synclaire: I think we're all forgetting that love is a magical thing. Maybe Terrence is the one. The one you can fall in love with. The one you can exchange vows with. The one you can grow old and ugly and wrinkled together but it doesn't matter 'cause you both have cataracts.
        Max: You know, Khadijah, in her own sick twisted way Syclaire may be right. You're not one for casual sex.
        Khadijah: I know. And this wasn't.
