AIRED:
A discouraged Synclaire is unsure about auditioning for an infomercial for a dashboard grill, but Max encourages her to follow her acting aspirations. Regine volunteers Max to drive Synclaire to the audition in order to keep her from hanging around the apartment on her day off. Max confronts the director when he dismisses Synclaire without allowing her to say her lines. He is so impressed by Max's spunk that he gives her the part. Synclaire accuses Max of robbing her of her dream, and begins to lose faith in their friendship. When Synclaire tries to walk off the set during the taping, Max calls her up to the stage as a skeptical customer. They pull off the performance beautifully, but are fired because the director feels there is no place for spontaneity in an infomercial. Synclaire thanks Max for restoring her belief in her acting ability. Overton is wracked with guilt when he continually dreams about the R&B group TLC after falling asleep during its videos. Tag: Synclaire threatens TLC when it appears in Overton's dream. Music: "Waterfalls" by TLCmoreless

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Synclaire: Those three women could represent the three blissful years we've spent together. Or the 'three times a lady' in that old Lionel Richie song.
        Overton: Yeah, baby. I knew you'd make sense of this.

      • Synclaire: I left a little piece of myself up there in those bleachers.
        Max: I'm guessing a fragment of brain.

      • (Synclaire takes short, quick breaths.)
        Max: Unless you're in labor, shut the hell up.

      • Regine: Max will drive you. She has the day off.
        Synclaire: Max, that would be wonderful. Is there anything I can do for you?
        Max: No. But Regine can bite me.

      • Synclaire: Max, you really think I could be a great actress?
        Max: Don't change the subject, okay? I said, 'Don't quit.'

      • Regine: Synclaire, look, there are a thousand things better suited to you than acting. Bottle recycling--and that's just off the top of my head.

      • Synclaire: It was a commercial for Afro Sheen. They said I wasn't ethnic enough, and then they gave the part to a white girl with a curly perm.
        Khadijah: That's better than the time you lost that Playtex commercial to that man.

      • Max: Good news, everyone. The office is flooded, and I've got the day off tomorrow. So I'm here all-lll-lll night!
        Khadijah: Go ahead and have a seat. Your couch dent from last night hasn't popped yet.

      • Overton: Maybe she got the part and her and Max went to celebrate.
        Regine: And maybe Newt Gingrich will attend the next gay pride parade.

      • Overton: Is this the real you or the dream you?
        Kyle: It's the real me. In a dream, I wouldn't say your mind is bad and leave. Ooh, your mind is bad!

      • Overton: I'm beginning to feel like I'm cheating on Synclaire now.
        Kyle: Was Synclaire in the dream?
        Overton: No.
        Kyle: Hey, then you're getting away with it.

      • Cris: Nothing makes you forget double vision--or a separated shoulder--like a mouthful of hot sandwich.

      • Overton: God help me!
        Kyle: God's busy. What you want?

      • Kyle: Overton, you're my cat, right? So I'm going to give your problem the appropriate amount of thought. Finished.

      • Khadijah: Max, you could've been a little more sensitive. I mean, acting is Synclaire's thing. All you ever wanted to do is be a Supreme Court justice and own a Sizzler.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Kim Fields appeared as Regine in the teaser of that night's episode of The Crew. Regine argued with Jess, a sassy stewardess, who then complimented her on her attitude and bumped her up to first class.
