Episode Summary

EDIT
The Engagement (2)
AIRED:
The police bring a shivering Overton to the apartment. The horse subdued the mugger, but bucked Overton into the bushes. He still does not tell Synclaire about the ring. Overton later picks the mugger out of the lineup. Synclaire breaks down the door and tries to attack the man. Overton's belongings are returned to him and (after an interruption from Khadijah) he proposes to Synclaire at the police station. She immediately accepts. As she has no chance of winning in court, Khadijah agrees to a settlement with the band, which will force Flavor to go bankrupt. Russell saves the day when he bursts in and announces that he has deconstructed the song in question. He gradually strips away parts of the song, and reveals that it actually was a rip-off of "Mandy." Max's campaign appears to be back on track when Kyle uncovers evidence that proves the incumbent is corrupt, but the documents are shredded. Max instead admits the allegations against her are true, but claims that they prove she has the passion to fulfill her duties. Tag: Synclaire has another run-in with the mugger. Music: "Mandy" by Barry Manilowmoreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (16)

      • Regine: A LITTLE HEAT!? It's not "Little" when Playboy offers you 5,000 dollars to star in their, "Ladies of the Immoral Majority" Edition!!
        (Starts to walk out door, followed by a whining Maxine.)
        Maxine: (shouts after Regine) WELL, IF THEY DONATE THE FIVE-GRAND AND ADOPT A HIGHWAY, I'D BE STUPID NOT TO DO IT!!!

      • Regine: Well, you have to admit, it was some kiss.
        Russell: Like a thousand others.
        Regine: Oh, get off it, Russell! Now you know damn well that there was a spark in that kiss! A...a...a volatile chemistry, pure passion! I've forgotten all about it, and you better do the same! (walks off)
        Russell: Just the way I like her: chesty and testy.

      • Russell: Don't worry, depressed and D-cupped. I'm here to see Khadijah.

      • Russell: Hello Khadijah. Synclaire.
        Synclaire: What lawsuit?
        (Pretends to zip her mouth shut.)

      • Khadijah: You are going into the office and act as if nothing is wrong.
        Synclaire: Ah! So everyone will think everything's normal.
        Khadijah: Well, not normal. But, you know, the way things are when you're around.

      • Overton: There's nothing like riding a horse at full gallop. Hooves pounding. Leather slapping. Me wishing I'd have worn my athletic supporter.

      • Regine: Well, did you find the man's valuables?
        Overton: I nearly lost my valuables riding the damn horse!

      • Max: The fact is that every word Paul Malaba has said about me is true. But what does that really say about me?
        Regine: That you're a freak?
        Max: That I'm a woman with a passion for life? Guilty. That I'm a woman who's willing to go all the way to get what she wants, over and over again, even when those around her are exhausted and spent? I'm guilty. My record proves I have nothing to hide. I say to the people of Brooklyn, a vote for Maxine Shaw is a vote for openness, passion and endurance. When I say 'Ride the Maverick,' I mean it!

      • Overton: Now Synclaire, ever since I could remember, I had a vision of the perfect woman. The way she looked; the way she talked; the way she walked; and even her favorite kind of hot cereal. Then I met you, and you were nothing like the vision. But fate just proved how wrong a man could be. It brought me the perfect woman, and I wanna spend the rest of my life saying, 'Thanks, fate.' Synclaire, will you, uh, will you marry me?

      • Synclaire: Let's just go home and tell everybody the good news, my fine fiancé.
        Overton: After you, my beautiful betrothed.
        Synclaire: Future father-to-be.
        Overton: Soon-to-be squaw.
        Synclaire: Good one!
        Khadijah: I hope they adopt.

      • Khadijah: I hereby withdraw my ten thousand dollars and instead offer each of you a complimentary foot in the ass!

      • Max: He made up some wild story that I was seen nude at some costume party in 1991. (Kyle looks at Max skeptically.) I was dressed as Nero. You try cinching up a toga with a beer in one hand and a stogie in the other.

      • Del: Settle out of court, and as a gesture of good faith, fire Russell.
        Khadijah (to Russell): You're fired. (to Del) Uh-huh?
        Russell: I know how hard that was for you.

      • Officer Solis: Speak as you were instructed.
        Suspect #1 (squeaky voice): Give me all your valuable stuff, or you're dead!
        Suspect #2 (squeaky voice): Give me all your valuable stuff, or you're dead!
        Mugger (English accent): I say, give me all your valuable stuff, or I'll give you the old what for. Ha, ha!

      • Overton: It's kind of ironic. I can't get with Synclaire, and you can't get away from Max. I guess into each life a little rain must fall.
        Kyle: Sure. He gets sprinkles; I get Hurricane Maxine.

      • Synclaire: The night's not over yet, my electric horseman.
        Overton: That's where you're wrong, my beloved, 'cause if I don't get some rest soon, I may never be able to saddle up again.
        Kyle: And if I don't get my eight hours, I'll look like the average man.
