Episode Summary

On the Rebound
NBA star Grant Hill comes to town for a Basketball/Piano Camp, and agrees to an interview for Flavor. While playing a game of one-on-one against Khadijah, he injures his knee in a mid-air collision. Khadijah feels guilty, but the injury is not serious. Grant comes over to the apartment, and he and Khadijah end up kissing (much to Regine's horror). Although Grant sweeps Khadijah off her feet and is interested in a relationship, Khadijah feels that the distance between them and their busy schedules would make this impossible. She breaks up with him, as she doesn't want to get hurt. Synclaire and Max suggest that she still hasn't gotten over Scooter. Kyle and Max are frustrated beyond belief when they cannot beat Overton and Synclaire at a single board game. Overton and Synclaire finally throw a game of Battleship to shut them up. A college-age messenger delivers a package to Flavor and is instantly smitten with Khadijah. Tag: Grant serenades an appreciative Regine.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Ivan: Mmm! What penmanship. If you don't mind me saying, you have a nice S.

    • Synclaire: Ivan, I don't know how long Khadijah's going to be. She's out having lunch with her new beau, Grant Hill.
      Ivan: Grant Hill? As in 'All-Star-Rookie-of-the-Year-All-American-Paid' Grant Hill?
      Synclaire: The one and only.
      Ivan: He ain't all that.

    • Max: You know, since Scooter left, you've been living like a nun...but a lot less fun.

    • Overton: Max, you could pull a cookie out between the doilies in a Pepperidge Farm bag. Surely you can do this.

    • Kyle: Why did you pick this game?
      Max: How was I supposed to know he'd be a Jenga genius?
      Kyle: The game is made out of wood. He's a handyman. What do you want to play next, 'Let's go build a redwood deck'?

    • Max (To Kyle): Don't screw it up for us again...sweetie.

    • Khadijah: What about the interview?
      Grant: Let's just say I feel blessed to have the opportunity to play a game I love.
      Khadijah: Good enough for me!

    • Max: Let's go pull Regine's head out of the oven.

    • Grant (singing): Regine, Regine, don't think I'm mean / But you're the most shameless girl I've ever seen / You're lovely, yes, indeed it's true / You need some other man, I don't know who.

    • Synclaire: So what are you going to do, Khadijah?
      Khadijah: I'm gonna hold my head up high...and walk into that kitchen and eat an entire gallon of cookie dough ice cream. And...and if you care about me, you'll come with me.
      Max: Oh, come on. A woman is upset about a man, and she stuffs her face with food. What a cliché. Listen, let's just go to a movie or something.
      Khadijah: Okay, you're right. Girl, you finished all the ice cream, huh?
      Max: Yes, completely.

    • Synclaire (to Khadijah): I hope you realize that your lips are compromising your journalistic integrity.
      Max: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. It's about time.

    • Max: That little imp can buff her body all she wants, but Grant's coming here to see you! So you might want to think about tightening up that hair a little bit.

    • Grant: It's just a sprain. I'm fine except for this dress they got me wearing.
      Regine: Lord. Five minutes with Khadijah and the man's in a dress.

    • Regine: Ooh. The air up there.
      Khadijah: Why don't you try the air out there?

    • Regine: They wouldn't even let him see his fiancée, the future Regine Hunter-Hill.
      Max: Regine, you are an embarrassment to desperate women everywhere.

  • NOTES (0)


    • In the elevator, Ivan looks up at Grant and says, "I wish I was a little bit taller." This was a line from the chorus of "I Wish," a 1995 hit song by rapper Skee-lo. It was about a young man who envied basketball players because they got all the girls.
