Episode Summary

EDIT
Too Good to Screw
AIRED:
Kyle learns that his visiting brother Damon is about to undertake a long voyage to Africa. He is incensed when Damon remarks that he also might be interested in becoming a handyman. He simultaneously offends both Damon and Overton, who strips him of best man duties. Damon points out that Kyle spends too much time working to enjoy life. After being teased about Max, Kyle agrees to stay out of Damon's business. He apologizes to Overton, and makes it up to him by flying in both his old shop teacher and Uncle Tibby for the bachelor party. Regine is furious when Max and Khadijah ask her high school rival, Ava Rivera, to help them organize Synclaire's bachelorette party. Ava lands Madonna's penthouse for the party, but Synclaire is upset when everyone pays more attention to the house than to her. Regine shifts the focus of the party back to Synclaire. When Madonna returns, Ava reveals that she doesn't have permission to use the house, and the girls crash Overton's party. Music: "Don't Waste My Time" by Esaga featuring Pamela Bryant (from the Living Single soundtrack).moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the scene when Max is eating the banana, in one scene a bite is gone out of it;,then in the next, it's a full banana, not eaten yet.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Regine: So where you holding the gala, Ava? Your boyfriend's cell block up at Riker's?
        Max: Can I tell her?
        Khadijah: No, no, no. This one is mine. Madonna's penthouse.
        Regine: Madonna who?
        Khadijah, Max & Ava: Not the Virgin Mary, honey!

      • Regine: Can I sleep with you?
        Kyle: Regine, this is so sudden.
        Regine: I can't sleep downstairs with those backstabbing wenches. Khadijah asked my arch-enemy, this bargain basement Rosie Perez... she asked her to coordinate Synclaire's party.

      • Khadijah: Bro, I think you left your chest home.
        (Synclaire hands stripper the money she had planned on stuffing in his drawers)
        Synclaire: Here. Go get something to eat.

      • Max: You're planning a party where a guy is carving butter. Overton wants a party where women are covered in butter.

      • Max: Beefcake Billy's is not a strip joint. It's an exclusive entertainment bistro.
        Khadijah: They got a half-off coupon. Might be fun to find out which half is coming off!

      • Regine: Ava. No you're not all up in my house!
        Ava: Hey chica. That's a good-looking wig.

      • Overton: When you insult my hammer, damn it, you insult me!

      • Regine: I am proud of being pushy. But you know, I don't think that's the right word for what we are.
        Kyle: Hmm. Perhaps we're visionaries.
        Regine: Yeah. Like Coco Chanel. Um, Gianni Versace. Or Lin Tang Pao.
        Kyle: Who?
        Regine: The mother of synthetic hair.

      • Damon: When was the last time you were in a good relationship?
        Kyle: As a matter of fact, I am in one right now.
        Damon: With who?
        Kyle: I can't tell you. It's a secret affair with somebody I hate.
        Damon: Listen Kyle, all I'm saying is that different things make us happy. And I can't believe you're seeing Max again!

      • Ava: Oh. My homecoming court has arrived.
        Regine: Yes. Just like high school. Except you're not under the bleachers with the judges.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Tracy Vilar later appeared with Erika Alexander in the 2002 film "Full Frontal."

      • In the original airing, a "special effect" was added to the final scene as part of Fox's heavy promotion for the Jim Carrey movie "The Mask." When the girls arrived at the party, Mr. Nacogdoches declared, "The strippers are here," and his eyes bulged out--similar to special effects in the film.
