Reconcilable Differences
AIRED:
Synclaire begins spending most of her evenings at rehearsals, leaving Overton feeling neglected. After she blows off the romantic dinner he had prepared, he goes out to a gambling club with Russell and Tripp. When Overton loses the money the couple had set aside for a new bed, a furious Synclaire forces him to sleep on the couch. Khadijah forces her to realize that she had been too hard on Overton, so Synclaire apologizes and skips a rehearsal to spend time with her husband. Overton surprises Synclaire by having a new bed delivered. (He had sold his favorite leather jacket to pay for it.) Regine's new relationship is complicated by the man's devotion to his dog, which he won't even keep out of the bedroom. Regine finally breaks up with him when it becomes apparent that he prefers the dog's company to hers. Regine, unaware of the potential harm, feeds the dog a chocolate treat. The dog is hospitalized with chocolate poisoning, but ends up pulling through. Music: "Gamin'" by Deborah Williams (from the Living Single soundtrack)moreless

    • QUOTES (11)

      • (After she gave Kingston chocolate and it put him in the hospital and Norwood just took a phone call)
        Khadijah: You gonna go straight to hell, you gonna burn forever girl.
        Regine: Listen, listen. It was an accident.
        Max (whispers): Dog killer.

      • (About Kingston, Norwood's dog)
        Regine: I see Daddy, gave you the gucci collar I bought you, that matches my shoes.
        Max: A few more matching accessories and Daddy won't be able to tell them apart.

      • Max: Wait a minute, you got something on your arm. (Picks it off) Oh, it's just a flea. Well, I guess when you lay down with dogs. (Khadijah laughs)
        Regine: For your information I broke up with Norwood last night. I told him it was either me or the dog.
        Max: And I take it he went with the one that was house broken.
        Khadijiah (laughing): You knew she had the gun yet you gave her the bullets. (Max makes it like she's blowing off a gun)

      • Max: Funny, I didn't think you had a problem with an audience, considering that your mother caught you and your boyfriend getting busy on the roof.
        (Khadijah and Max laugh)
        Regine: When are you guys just going to let that go?
        Max: When it stops being so funny.

      • Synclaire: Don't you have the kind with the dancing bananas on the box?
        Khadijah: We did when you lived here, but you got married and moved out, remember?
        Max: Yeah, girl. The groceries are for the people who live here

      • (Synclaire flashes her ring)
        Synclaire: Overton, what is this?
        Overton: Fifty-eight more payments over the next five years.

      • Russell (to Regine): For years, I've dreamed of you in a dress like that. Only the top was lower and the bottom was higher. Actually, in my dream, it was just a belt.
        Regine: Russell, this dress isn't for you. It is for Norwood, the man who has wined and dined me for five fabulous weeks. He deserves it.
        Khadijah: And it looks like he's gonna get it.

      • Khadijah: Flatter me all you want, but you are not getting Friday off, Russell. Erykah Badu's birthday is not a religious holiday.

      • Tripp: So ladies, would you take me home? (spins around)
        Khadijah: You are home. Now get out.

      • Overton: Synclaire, we went to a gambling club, okay?
        Synclaire: Really. Well, how'd you do, Obie?
        Tripp: Did I hear my mama calling me?

      • Max: Look on the bright side, Regine. In ten years, the dog will be dead...and you'll still be single.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Jill, the dog that portrays Kingston, gained notoriety through an appearance in the Oscar-nominated film As Good as It Gets, and later was added to the cast of another Yvette Lee Bowser series, For Your Love.
