Episode Summary

EDIT
Amanda is nominated for a magazine's Businesswoman of the Year award, and is considered a strong favorite. Lexi sleeps with Drew MacKenzie, the magazine's editor-in-chief, in the hopes of convincing him to give her the honor instead. When her plan fails, she starts a rumor that Amanda won the award by sleeping with Drew. Megan learns the truth when she eavesdrops on a conversation between Lexi and Drew. Jane shares the news with Amanda, who humiliates Lexi in her acceptance speech and mockingly presents her with the award. Jane accuses Megan of having an affair with Michael. Michael suggests that he and Jane elope. Michael punches Alex after he claims that Michael's haste stems from his fear that Jane will sleep with Alex. Jane threatens to call off the wedding unless Michael agrees to trust her. She temporarily moves back to the apartment building. Peter and Eve have their first date (miniature golf). He is touched by her enthusiasm for mundane things such as hot dogs, but she frightens him with an overly passionate kiss. Eve sends Peter a love letter, but is hurt when she hears him sarcastically reading it to Michael. They later decide to make a fresh start. Ryan tells Megan that he is still interested in her.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Amanda is horrified by the suggestion that she would sleep with someone to achieve professional success. What about during season 4, when Billy became a star in the industry and she slept with him to improve her job security? At the awards ceremony, Amanda makes a big speech about how sleazy and deceptive Lexi is; and everyone who knows her stands and applauds, as if Amanda is such an honorable businesswoman who does everything by merit and never stabs anyone in the back or uses underhanded methods. Please. Would anyone like to run that one by Alison?

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Michael: I'm weak in the courtship area.
        Jane: You're pretty weak in the relationship area as well.
        Michael: But I am really, really good in bed.

      • Woman: (on Amanda's 'affair') Does her husband know?
        Lexi: As many times as she's been married in the last year, who knows?

      • Amanda: The first line of my speech was to be, 'Thank you, Drew McKenzie.' But if I say that, you'll all think I slept with him. Which, as we all know, is the only way a woman can win this award. Anyway, Drew, this is terrific. But you've got it all wrong with that stuff about integrity and conviction; you should be looking for a woman who can backstab, cheat, and lie as good as the next guy. I'm talking master manipulators, rumor mongers, gossips, and I'm afraid I just don't measure up in those areas. So, I'm gonna have to decline this award, and make sure it goes to the woman who really deserves it. A woman so low that she would stoop to starting a rumor to ruin a person's reputation for no other reason than hey, just for the fun of it. So c'mon everyone, let's put 'em together... for Lexi Sterling. The lowest of the lowest and my personal choice for Businesswoman of the Year.

      • Megan: (when Jane accuses her of sleeping with Michael) I would have to be brain-dead to make that mistake twice.

    • NOTES (1)

      • While watching Monday Night Football, Michael and Peter complain about its new, earlier time slot. The move to 8 PM EST placed it in direct competition with Melrose Place on the east coast.
