Kyle and Max's attempts to sneak around are complicated when Overton takes a second job as a handyman in her building. She is evicted after he inadvertently exposes her illegal satellite dish to the landlord. She lays the blame on Overton, and storms out. Overton orders Kyle to come out of the bedroom to discuss the situation, but Kyle doesn't feel much like defending Max. Khadijah shows Max the error of her ways and convinces her to apologize.

    • QUOTES (23)

      • Max: Damn! I can't believe you got me evicted after I pulled all those strings to get you this job.
        Overton: Now hold up there, Geppetto.

      • Overton: When you do get caught with your hand in the cookie jar, you blame the chef for making them 'oh so tasty'.
        Max: What relative did you get that colorful phrase from? Uncle Smoke Eye? Cousin Ham Bone? Grandpa Cotton Gin?

      • Overton (after him and Max have a fight, Max leaves her apartment): Kyle Barker, get out here right now, 'cause your woman's really starting to piss me off!

      • Overton: Wait a minute. Now one of us is supposed to be on the other side, right?
        Kyle: Brother, we are talking about Maxine here.
        Overton: True that.

      • Regine (about the housekeeper that's coming): It's not a 'her'; it's a 'him.'
        Khadijah: What? Oh great. If he shrinks my bras in the dryer, I'll have to give them to Max.

      • Kyle: You know, I used to not like sweets in the morning, but you're changing my mind.
        Max: Just call me boy candy.

      • Overton: Oh, Jamaican Number Nine incense. I thought Kyle was the only one into this stuff. Who turned you on to it?
        Max: Now did I ask any questions when I caught you and Synclaire filling your caulking gun with hot caramel?

      • Regine (to Reese): I'm Regine. I'm the lady of the house. Oh, uh, Khadijah and Synclaire live here too.

      • Overton: There isn't a problem with the wiring, is there, Inspector?
        Khadijah: Not as long as you don't mind waking up on fire!

      • Overton: There is one hitch. Max has got to stay.
        Mr. Leon: Tell her to stop writing 'Go to hell' on her rent checks, and we got a deal.
        Overton: Hey, I can fix the wiring, but I am not God.

      • Overton: I'm on it like trouble on a Dallas Cowboy.

      • Regine: Why does the bathroom look like it belongs in a bus station?
        Khadijah: Maybe because you were supposed to go buy cleaning supplies and all you came back with was some nail polish and a copy of Black Hair Today.

      • Synclaire: I can't believe this. We all too busy or too bougie to clean our own house!

      • Khadijah: I don't want some feisty old woman messing with my stuff. We're not The Jeffersons.
        Synclaire: Well, hold on there, Weezie!

      • Synclaire: It tickles my nose every time I inhale.
        Regine: Well, honey, a good bride never breathes.

      • Max: Hey, that's a nice veil, Regine. Wrap that in lace around a muzzle...be perfect for your wedding.

      • Reese: Ms. Hunter, your dry cleaning and your feminine products.
        Khadijah: No, you didn't.
        Regine: Girl, please. My coupon expires today.

      • Overton: Are you familiar with the phrase, 'A building is only as strong as its weakest apartment'?
        Max: Are you familiar with the phrase, 'Who gives a rat's butt?'

      • Khadijah: You're lucky I didn't break character. Ooh, I wanted to beat him down when he called me a hip-hop chick.

      • Khadijah: Hey, I'm trying to watch TV here. Shaggy and Scooby are about to unmask the fake ghost. (to the TV) I knew it was you!

      • Khadijah: Now I'm generally a pretty compassionate person. But this is just stupid!

      • Khadijah: Synclaire, why are you cleaning when the housekeeper will be here any minute?
        Synclaire: I am not about to let a complete stranger see how we keep house. When maids aren't scrubbing toilets, they talk.

      • Synclaire: Oh Overton, you don't have to work two jobs. If we plan ahead for hard times, we'll be just fine.
        Overton: Yeah, and if 'if' was a fifth, we'd all be drunk.
