Episode Summary

There's No Ship Like Kinship
Khadijah's long-time friend Sheri accepts a job as a columnist at Flavor. She quickly makes friends with Synclaire, and the two go out to lunch every day and constantly joke around at the office. An annoyed Khadijah claims that their antics are disrupting the office, but she is actually very jealous. After she loses her temper and stomps off to her room during a game of Clue at the apartment, Synclaire confronts her. Khadijah apologizes and admits that she has been feeling left out. Sheri quits her job at Flavor, as she earned more money free-lancing. Overton suffers from insomnia after buying a new box spring. He does not sleep for days, and behaves erratically. When he goes upstairs to check on Khadijah and Synclaire, he falls asleep on Khadijah's bed. Tag: Everyone tries to get slumbering Overton out of Khadijah's room. Music: "Confunction Junction," sung by Kim Coles and Rosie O'Donnellmoreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • During this episode 7 people are playing Clue: Sheri, Synclaire, Khadijah, Kyle, Max, Overton, and Regine. This is impossible since only 6 people can play Clue at one time.

    • QUOTES (23)

      • (Kyle has been singing opera in his sleep, keeping Overton up)
        Overton: Since I was up, I figured I'd make you all new mailbox labels. Each one is a brass plate with your name engraved in beautiful old-fashioned script.
        Regine: (takes one from his hand) Overton, this is Hebrew!
        Overton: The mailman's Jewish.

      • Regine: Khadijah is living proof that some people just aren't meant to balance on two little blades.
        Khadijah: And you're living proof that two little blades do not, a mustache clear.

      • Sherri: (holding pamphlets) I am such a pushover. I always get the Watchtower and Awake!

      • Max: Overton, have you tried some sort of sleep aid?
        Overton: Girl I've tried them all: Sleep-Ex, Snooz-A-Phan Plus, Maximum Strength Snoreson. Even tried the generic brand: Go-to-Sleep.

      • Khadijah: How can an article called "What Makes Dogs so Great," ever go stale?

      • Regine: Khadijah is living proof that some people just aren't meant to balance on two little blades.
        Khadijah: And you're living proof that two little blades do not, clear a mustache.

      • Max: Aw, is Khadijah missing Synclaire?
        Khadijah: No!
        Regine: Stop lying.
        Max: Well, don't be sad. We'll fill in for her. (Pretends to type) What's buzzin', cousin? Ching! Oh-oh-oh-oh! Ching!
        Regine: Woo-woo-woo! Woo-woo-woo!

      • Sheri: Clue's good. We love Clue. We're playing Clue. Tonight. I can hardly wait. What the hell did I just get myself into?
        Synclaire: It's a murder mystery game where you try to guess who the murderer is, with what weapon and where.
        Sheri: Reminds me of Jersey.

      • Synclaire: There's a new restaurant that just opened down the street. It is traditional Japanese.
        Sheri: I don't know. I don't think I wanna see your feet while I'm eating.

      • Sheri: We used a picture of your feet for our eighth grade science project.
        Khadijah: It was in the name of science.
        Synclaire: Well, for the greater good.
        Sheri (to Khadijah): What a sport. I would've kicked your ass.

      • Synclaire (on phone with Sheri): I'll meet you there in ten minutes. We'll get some raspberry filled, some Boston cream...
        Khadijah: Ooh, and some plain!
        Synclaire: Okay. And Khadijah wants some plain. (Laughs) Yeah, I know.

      • Kyle (with English accent): Now, you may have pulled the wool over the eyes of the Scotland Yard boys, Miss Scarlett, but not me.
        Max: Oh, come on. Give us all a break. It's called Clue, not Moron.
        Kyle: What was that? Oh, it was just the hounds baying at the moon.

      • Synclaire: I can't believe that you'd accuse us of cheating.
        Sherri: Forget about it, Synclaire. She's onto us. I mean, it's been fun roaming the country, pulling one Clue scam after another, but look, we've finally met our match.

      • Max: Khadijah, stop trippin'.
        Khadijah: I heard them. Plum, knife, kitchen. Doesn't it bother you that some people are tryin' to get over?

      • Khadijah: Now, look. I've been playing this game since I was a kid, and never have I seen someone who just had to have fruit in the middle of the game. Well, I will not be a part of this mockery of Clue!

      • Khadijah: Look Sheri, I'm sorry I went off.
        Sheri: Hey, you were trying to solve a murder. Anyone could crack under the pressure.

      • (Playing clue)
        Kyle: Let's just play the game. Come on. Who's next?
        Overton (lays cards down): Gin.

      • Kyle (with English accent): I propose it was you who killed him, in the conservatory with the knife.
        Regine (with southern accent): I declare. Colonel Mustard, are you accusing me of murder? I swoon!
        Sheri: I puke!

      • Khadijah: What's twenty minutes between cousins?
        Sheri: Sounds like a pick-up line at a hillbilly bar.

      • Max: Overton was right. It is exactly 128 steps from my apartment here.
        Kyle: But how many is it back?

      • Synclaire: Obie, you didn't sleep again? Didn't you try counting cows?
        Max: Cows?
        Synclaire: Sure. They're slower than sheep. Easier to count.

      • Regine: There's only two things that can cause a man not to sleep for three days: heartache or career crisis.
        Overton: Are you kidding? Synclaire and I are closer that jelly on toast. And, hell, I got the dream job. Oh sure, I don't have my own show on TV like some handymen, but it don't keep me up at night.

      • Kyle (with Russian accent): Now, comrades. Let us get back to game, ah? I'm about to solve crime.
        Sheri: Yeah? I'm about to commit one.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The high pitched laugh that Sheri and Synclaire do is the trademark of Betty Rubble, whom Rosie O'Donnell played in the movie version of "The Flintstones."
