Episode Summary

EDIT
Who's the Boss?
AIRED:
When Khadijah is stricken by the flu, she reluctantly allows Synclaire to take charge of the office. However, she enlists Regine (who is on a paid vacation while the boutique undergoes remodeling) to go into the office to keep an eye on Synclaire. Russell, the music editor, is furious when his column is cut (although it was Khadijah's decision). He quits, and announces that he will not return as long as Synclaire is running the magazine. While the office is in chaos, an important prospective client arrives, as Synclaire had forgotten to re-schedule the appointment. Synclaire calls Khadijah to ask for help, but Khadijah is too drowsy from the medicine that Max had given her. Synclaire improvises, offering to refund the man's money if the ad does not increase sales at his Brooklyn shoe stores. Khadijah is impressed by Synclaire's work, and admits that she also makes things up as she goes along. A full-page photo of Russell confuses her, but Synclaire explains that it was the only way to coax him into coming back. Overton must care for the cranky, whiny Khadijah during her illness, but gets his revenge when he is laid up with the flu. Tag: Khadijah silences Overton's whining with tranquilizer dart.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • After Khadijah smears jelly toast on Kyle's shirt, Kyle hugs Max to get the stain on her jacket. She says that she borrowed the jacket from Overton, who says that he borrowed it from Kyle. Overton could not wear the same size as Kyle and Max because he is so much taller than they are. (It appeared to fit Max, and would have had to be way too big for her in order for Overton to wear it comfortably.)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Max: I refuse to live under the same roof with her when she's like that.
        Regine: Well, hey, fortunately, there's an abandoned apartment across the street and it's got your name on the lease.

      • Kyle: There were some people at my office laid out for weeks with this flu, baby.
        Max: He's right. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Kyle, go sit a little closer to Khadijah.

      • Regine: Everything was going just fine for David and Fatima until he caught her in the darkroom with Mike.
        Synclaire: Regine, you don't even know these people.
        Regine: So what? I'm in the loop.

      • Russell: You should have thought of that before you sold your soul to The Man.
        Synclaire: Khadijah's not The Man.
        Russell: You don't have to be a man to be The Man.

      • Overton (to Synclaire): I'm so proud of you, girl. I always knew you'd get a chance to rule by default.

      • Regine: Hey Overton. How is she?
        Overton: Nothing two aspirin and a cattle prod wouldn't cure.

      • Synclaire (On the phone): Hello Khadijah? Hi, it's me. Things are a mess here. Listen, I'm sorry. Just save the magazine. I don't care about myself anymore. Mr. Anderson is here. Now please tell me what to do. Help!
        Khadijah (drowsily): Okay. Dijah loves you too, Grammy. Okay. Bye-bye.

      • Overton: I'd love to prop you up, sweet thing. But I've got nothing left to give!

      • Russell: Synclaire, you want to see a grown man cry?
        Synclaire: Uh, that's very secure of you, Russell, but no thank you. Not really.

      • Overton: I hate to think how miserable she'll be when she gets pregnant. Although not much chance of that happening if she keeps throwing food on men that get close to her bed.
