  • Great episode!!

    This was a great episode!! Lynn sure is showing since last episode she didn't and Jane is still on vacation. Patrick and Annie start talking about their future when Patrick knows he needs to go to a sperm back. We find out that he made a donation when he was 19 for money but his sperm is no good. There still is a chance he can. I am glad Annie and Patrick stayed together and I knew they would. Marin makes out with that guy even though he has more girls that he sleeps with. Marin comes to a decision at the end that it won't work. Jane and Sam teach each other stuff and she gets stuck on the boat in the middle of the lake.moreless
  • Marin starts acting a little too mcuh like on of the guys.

    marin starts off the episode whipping jack at pool, drinking beer at the bar & then a burp escapes! Oh My! She is turning into one of the guys. Jane is there & is awesome as always. I just love her and Sam. She teaches him about exfoliation and hydrating moisurizures, He tries to teach her about tying knots and how things work on the boat. Matrin heads off to meet Stuart for a ski date. An over night ski date. they of course end up sleeping together. He let her know before hand that she was not the only one he was involved with & she said what the heck.

    i was a little disappointed then, but she redeemed herself byt the end of the episode. She is a strings attached girl & doesn't want to pretend she isn't. Good for you marin!

    patrick has Buzz take him to a sperm bank to get back a donation that he made back in college. He finds out he has soem trouble with his sperm & might not be able to have kids. Annie was amazing & supportive as always.

    Buzz talks bout his sone George & how he never sees him & it was just as much his fault as his ex's. Patrick surprises Buzz by bringing George to Elmo. It's never too late he says.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the previous episode, "Bed, Bat and Beyond", Jane arrives for a 2 week vacation and Lynn has not yet begun to show her pregnancy when seen in shorts and a tight shirt. Yet in this episode, Lynn is said to be 5 months pregnant and is showing considerably, even though Jane is still within her 2 week vacation. In fact, it's not until the beginning of the next episode "Nice Girls Finish Frist" that Jane is at the second to last day of her vacation (which she then opts to extend).

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Ben: Jane, I really like that perfume.
      Sam: Actually, it's my calming aftershave balm.
      Ben: You smell like apples man.
      Sam: Let's see who's laughing in five years when I still have my baby face.

    • Jack: I don't know, Marin, you still dress like a girl, you smell like a girl.
      Marin: What does that mean? I smell all flowery, like daisies?
      Jack: With a hint of vodka.

    • Patrick: I need to go to a sperm bank.
      Buzz: Oh, hell no. You don't have to go to a sperm bank to have a baby. You know your mom should really have talked to you about this.
      Patrick: Yeah, I know about the birds and the bees.
      Buzz: Patrick, are you and Annie that hard up for money? I mean, I know I told you to man-up, but you don't have to man-up all over the place.

    • Marin: (after agreeing to a no-strings relationship) I just can't be a guy about this. I'm a girl, Stuart.
      Stuart Maxson: I believe I have empirical proof of that, yes.

    • Stuart Maxson: I can't believe you follow hockey.
      Marin: I didn't used to, but now I live in a town where eight out of ten conversations are about sports, and the Rangers are my boys.
      Stuart Maxson: You are now insanely sexy to me. You know that, right?

    • Clerk: We tried to contact you four years ago.
      Patrick: Yeah, I moved… unlike my sperm.
