Episode Summary

EDIT
The Best Laid Plans
AIRED:
Max plans on making a play for her old law school professor and mentor, Clayton Simmons, who is in town to give a lecture. She organizes a law discussion party at the girls' apartment. Khadijah confesses to Synclaire that she once spent the night with Clayton, but can't bring herself to tell Max. At the party, Clayton acts as though he doesn't remember Khadijah. An offended Khadijah takes him into the kitchen. He explains that he does remember her, but didn't say anything in case she hadn't told Max. Max overhears their conversation through an open window, and is very upset. Clayton explains that he cannot date his students, but says that he is proud of her. Max is exasperated by Khadijah's tendency to keep secrets, but forgives her. Regine is outraged when Tripp lets the woman he is entertaining wear Regine's bathrobe and use her bubble bath. She also cuts his soap-on-a-rope because it is not appropriate for a "diva's bathroom." Tripp embarrasses catererer Regine by showing up for the party sweaty and reeking of garbage. They finally agree to a compromise. Music: "Sexual Healing" (Marvin Gaye), sung by Mel Jacksonmoreless

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Synclaire: "Maxine is a generous contributor to a variety of charities."
        Regine: What? Max, dropping off a bag of your sweaty bras at Goodwill doesn't count.

      • Tripp: What do I do about Regine?
        Overton: Well, you can't trap a badger by slapping a bunch of neck bones out in the middle of the yard. See, you got to hide them behind a rock--preferably one with some peat moss, but that's just me. Next thing you know, badger stew for everybody. Yeah!

      • Regine: Those bras moved in here way before you did.
        Tripp: With as much space as they take up, they need to be paying rent.
        Regine: I will take that as the compliment I know it was meant to be.

      • Regine (to Tripp): You are not about to kick me out of my own bathroom so you can play Frogman with Little Miss Thursday Night.

      • Synclaire: Hello Professor. Maxine regularly donates her sweaty bras to charity.

      • Max: I need a man in my head, someone who can challenge my mind as well as feed my soul.
        Synclaire: Why do you think I'm with Obie?

      • Max: I can't believe you didn't tell me. But then again, you knew my college roommate was a lesbian, and you didn't tell me that either. Or that the guy I chased my entire sophomore year was a Republican.
