Episode Summary

EDIT
Singing the Blues
AIRED:
After observing the depressing lack of talent at the cafe's open mike night, the group persuades Kyle to sing the following week. Overton agrees to perform his stand-up comedy act in exchange for Kyle's participation. Kyle starts out well as he performs "When I Fall in Love," but begins stuttering when Max enters in a low-cut gown and sits directly in front of him. He runs out of the cafe, thus ensuring Overton's victory. Max teases him mercilessly about his failure, while Overton believes that Kyle's unresolved feelings for Max are responsible for the incident. He urges him to get back on stage to prove himself. Kyle delivers a brilliant performance of "My Funny Valentine." He sings most of the song directly to a swooning Max. While the girls needle Max, Kyle thanks Overton for his advice, which he believes has freed him from Max's influence. At that moment, Max looks over her shoulder and smiles at Kyle seductively. He returns her gaze. "Oh Lord! There they go again!" Overton sighs. Regine tries an unusual method to help Khadijah overcome her fear of public speaking for an interview with Black Visionaries. Tag: Max performs stand-up act for ventriloquist's dummy. Music: "Theme from The Love Boat" (Jack Jones), performed by Robert Horn / T.C. Carson; "When I Fall in Love" (Nat King Cole) and "My Funny Valentine" (Rodgers and Hart), performed by T.C. Carsonmoreless
