Episode Summary

EDIT
Who's Scooping Who?
AIRED:
Khadijah vies with Marcus Hughes, a pompous reporter from the Village Voice, to break a story about a promoter who fixes fights. Khadijah appears to have the upper hand when she coaxes one of the fighters into granting an interview and providing details of the scandal. Marcus tricks the maid into letting him into Khadijah's hotel room, where he hides in the bathroom and records her interview. However, Khadijah has one more trick up her sleeve: she arranges for Flavor to hit the newsstands a day earlier than usual. She taunts Marcus by noting that he may work for a big magazine, but Khadijah calls the shots at Flavor. Regine is thrilled to discover that she is the inspiration for a popular doll. Max convinces the toy company to give Regine a share of the profits, but Regine's dreams of wealth are dashed when a defect in the doll is discovered: its wig is highly flammable. Tag: The doll bursts into flames.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (14)

      • Regine: Sherine is so beautiful and glamorous. She could whup Barbie's flat behind any day. Yes you can, girl. Yes you can.
        Max: Regine, you have been cooing over that doll all day. Now you put it away, or it loses a limb.
        Regine (to doll): She's just jealous because the only thing on the market she resembles is a multistrand floor mop.

      • Khadijah: Remember that story I told you I was doing on the boxing promoter that was fixing his fights?
        Max: No.
        Khadijah: You were eating pancakes with blueberry syrup.
        Max: Oh yeah. King Davis.

      • Synclaire: Khadijah, I'm no reporter, but why don't you just walk right up to this King Davis fellow and go, "Hey there now, you're fixing fights! Come clean!"
        Khadijah: Synclaire, King Davis has 84 arrests and no convictions. I'm afraid he's too crafty, even for your sophisticated approach.

      • Max: If you really want to boost sales, you should get a hold of those naked Brad Pitt photos.
        Khadijah: Now you know we don't print that kind of stuff.
        Max: Well, could you get 'em anyway?

      • Regine: It's called the Sherine doll. Doesn't it look like me?
        Max: Please. You said the same thing about Whitney Houston.

      • Overton: You know, often times, people confuse me with Montel. People just chasing me down the street, telling me their business. You'd be surprised how many dyslexic transsexuals want to adopt.

      • Regine: Your lips might be saying that this is business, but that cheap lip gloss is saying, "It's a date."

      • Regine: Now I've got to retrieve those letters that I mailed to family members cutting them off!

      • Overton: Regine, I'm kind of disappointed in you. Didn't you safety test your face before you put it on the market?

      • Khadijah: It's the oldest trick in the book.
        Synclaire: Now Khadijah, it couldn't possibly be the oldest trick in the book. Beepers have not been around that long.
        (A little later)
        Marcus (to Khadijah): Don't get all salty 'cause you fell for the oldest trick in the book.
        Synclaire: I stand corrected.

      • Overton: Corporate America's always trying to cash in on somebody else's brainchild. They even tried to do it to me.
        Kyle: Right. When?
        Overton: That hair-cutting vacuum, the Flowbee? Rhymes with Obie. Coincidence? I think not.

      • Regine: Sherine is me! Look, she has got six interchangeable wigs.

      • Max: You forgot to put how many pieces of candy it took to get her into the car.
        Kyle: Well, at least I don't have to lure my dates with raw meat.

      • Khadijah: Now you don't have to be bitter about Anna Nicole Smith anymore. See? You don't have to make your fortune by marrying some old geezer.
        Regine: That was a private rivalry, Khadijah!
