Episode Summary

My Cups Runneth Over
Regine's doctor recommends that she undergo breast reduction surgery to alleviate her chronic back problems. After the surgery, Regine loses her self-esteem and begins throwing herself at men. Kyle assures her that she doesn't look any different, and states that her confidence and personality are what make her attractive to men. Kevon and the other neighborhood children blame Overton when a greedy ice cream man (who had been operating in the middle of winter) suffers a heart attack while reaching in the back of the truck for the Nutty Buddy that Overton had ordered. Tag: Regine poses for photos at doctor's office. Music: "Accentuate the Positive," sung by Kim Coles; "The Way We Were" (Barbra Streisand), sung by Kim Fieldsmoreless

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Regine: What if this was you? In fact, this should be you. Why isn't it you…?
        Khadijah: Ehh! Now I was built to hold this shelf.

      • Dr. Sheridan: We really should get your breasts down to a workable size.
        Regine: Well, I've been working with these for years. Come on, they're one of my greatest assets. They're part of what makes me a woman. And, if I might say, a diva.

      • Max: Hey, more than a handful is wasted.
        Khadijah: Says you.

      • Dr. Sheridan: Hi. I'm Dr. Sheridan.
        Regine: You're a woman.
        Dr. Sheridan: Well, according to this are too.

      • Regine: It was kinda weird not being the best-dressed person in the cafe tonight. I mean, even Synclaire and her dorky hat looked more pulled together.
        Kyle: There you go.
        Regine: Oh, I'm just getting started. Khadijah--what was girlfriend thinking? In all that purple, she looked like Barney's girlfriend!

      • Regine: "Breast-shaped structures?" What am I, a muffin pan? I want cleav!
        Dr. Sheridan: Trust me. As someone who has performed this procedure many, many times, you still have an impressive set of hooters.

      • Synclaire: And when you come back, I'm just gonna sing, sing, sing...
        Regine: If you mention singing one more... (slowly, as medication takes effect) Who put the blue hat on Larry's ta-ble?

      • Dr. Sheridan: So, your orthopedist recommended reduction mammoplasty.
        Regine: Yes he did. But you know, just sitting here, my breasts suddenly feel quite light.
        Dr. Sheridan: Well, before you float away, let me take a look at your back.

      • Regine: Did you hear that? Did you hear that? People are paying good money to get what I might have to lose.
        Khadijah: She will be back in three years when them things get recalled.

      • Khadijah: So what are you going to do?
        Regine: I'm gonna ignore him. Come on. I don't wanna look like a man. Or...Max.

      • Regine: You know how doctors are. They always gotta find something wrong with you. He told me I needed a breast reduction; I told him he needed to go to hell.

      • Max: Kevon, did the Big Brother program assign Kyle to you as punishment?
        Kevon: You're right. She is a mean old lady. Where's the nice one with the fake hair?

      • Regine: What if they mess up? Or what if they take too much? What if they give me a third one?
        Synclaire: Well, they say the third one's the charm.
        Overton: You know, sweet thing, you can find the silver lining in any cloud. But sometimes you need to just let it rain.

    • NOTES (1)

      • When Regine tries to argue that Khadijah should be the one to undergo the surgery, Khadijah replies, "I was built to hold this shelf." However, Queen Latifah had to undergo breast reduction surgery in 2003.
