Episode Summary

The James Bond
Khadijah and Synclaire learn that a $500 savings bond they opened as teenagers has matured, and is now worth $2700. Khadijah is anxious to use all the money to purchase a new computer for Flavor, and doesn't realize that Synclaire wants to use her half to attend a Harvey Keitel acting seminar. Synclaire spends her money without consulting Khadijah, who is unaware of her actions until the new computer is repossessed. Khadijah spends her share on a raise for Russell, and is furious at her cousin. She later learns that, although she had always considered Flavor their dream, Synclaire does not feel this way. She agrees to support Synclaire's aspirations. Kyle is outraged when he learns that Max has one more name in her little black book than he does. Max accuses him of being childish, but he isn't pacified until he discovers that he hasn't included Max in his book, while he is in hers. Tag: Overton watches Synclaire's naked acting demonstration.moreless

    • QUOTES (26)

      • Synclaire: Khadijah, did you know that we could use Flavor's computer to go online and chat with people from across the country?
        Khadijah: Synclaire, did you know that there's an unemployment line where you could chat with out of work people from across the city?

      • Russell: Oh child! The blasted girl has sent us back into the dark ages!
        Ivan: Yes! Prayer works!

      • Ivan: Well, then I guess that's it. You mind if I wander around aimlessly, just thinking about what might have been?
        Khadijah: Knock yourself out.
        Ivan: I'm thinking about that, too.

      • Ivan: Might I add that this computer cannot provide you with love and support?
        Khadijah: It also won't stalk me.

      • Russell: As soon as this computer is installed, I'm gonna take the old one out back and beat it till I'm dizzy!

      • Russell: Crazy family. Spending each other's money and hugging before dawn. I tell you, it's Babylon!

      • Khadijah: Well, if I get a little intense, it's only because Flavor is our dream.
        Synclaire: No, our dream was to be on Soul Train. But that never happened, Miss Refuse to Wear a Midriff!

      • Kyle: You know, Khadijah, there's got to be a more modern computer out there. You know, one where the screen doesn't dim when you stop pedaling.

      • Regine: What do three firecrackers mean?
        Khadijah: It means if Regine doesn't mind her own business, it may blow up in her face.

      • Max: Hands off, Thumbelina. This is not for your prying eyes.

      • Overton: You washed as many cars as Khadijah.
        Synclaire: Well, actually, I just made bubbles with the soap and played elephant with the hose.

      • Regine (reading about Synclaire's seminar): 'Harvey Keitel's How to Kill, Die and Play the Piano Naked'.

      • Max: Listen Kyle, you open up that book, your face will melt like wax. It's that whole 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' thing.
        Kyle: Well, I'll take my chances. After all, I've seen you in the morning and survived.

      • Synclaire: You know I've always had a problem standing up for myself.
        Khadijah: You're getting better. Just last week, remember what you said to that guy? "Hey man, I said original, not extra crispy, and I meant it!"

      • (Khadijah taps Synclaire's shoulder to wake her. )
        Synclaire: Mommy, I don't wanna go to school!

      • Max: Why'd you draw jumper cables next to my name?
        Kyle: Wouldn't you like to know? Come Simba, let's eat.

      • Kyle: What would you say to the proposal that we burn our black books?
        Max: I have an even better idea. Why don't you just pluck out my eyeballs and use them for fruit salad?

      • Overton: Why don't you burn those black books, man?
        Kyle: And while we're destroying national monuments, why don't I just go tip over Stonhenge?

      • Khadijah: Well, I'll tell you this. If you ever do make it as an actress, you'll never be on the cover of Flavor!
        Synclaire: Right! Because you won't have the graphic capability!

      • Synclaire: I'm an actress. Synclaire James, in Technicolor and surround sound.
        Regine: Ooh, the audience is listening!

      • Khadijah: So I just stood there as they wheeled my big, beautiful computer away. (manic tone) I'm gonna kill Synclaire!
        Synclaire: Hey everybody! I'm home!
        Overton: Oh, she announces herself. Man, that's like the Christians yelling, 'Hey lions, we're here!'

      • Regine: I can't believe Max even coded the phone numbers... (Sees Max and Kyle). Two eggs beaten lightly. Bake at 350. Serves twelve. Say, thanks for the recipes, Max.

      • Overton: Regine, you got some money for Synclaire?
        Regine: Yeah, sure. Let me just go get my checkbook. You two stay here and hold your breath.

      • Regine: Synclaire, do you really think you can learn something just by watching actors? You've been watching me for years, yet you still dress like that.

      • Ivan: You mind if I wander around aimlessly, thinking about what might have been?
        Khadijah: Knock yourself out.
        Ivan: I'm thinking about that, too.

      • Kyle: Your little black book contains one more entry than mine.
        Max: Really?
        Kyle: Now you know the ugly truth.
        Max (highly mocking tone): Oh, and that's what's got you so down. Oh, pobrecito! The torture to your manly pride!
