  • PJ gets a column.

    This is the kind of My Boys episode we have been waiting for. A perfect example of justification for the TBS ads claiming that this is "the one comedy you really should be watching".

    The scene with Andy warning Bobby about disagreeing with PJ, and mentioning the various "hats" he has worn throughout his life was great and reminiscent of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer spoke to Jerry about the troubles of marriage.

    Mike was also really funny as well, but that's to be expected every episode.

    This was just a really good half hour of TV and restored my faith in My Boys.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Andy: I'll tell you what every man wants - a nap.

    • Stephanie: Who says that using your looks to your advantage is a bad thing, anyway? You know who? Ugly people. Being attractive is an asset. It's like being rich or tall. And you don't see people tall enough to reach the top shelf standing in line to buy step ladders, do you?
      PJ: Did you just make that up?
      Stephanie: Yes. But it sounded like a saying, didn't it?

    • (Andy has referred to Bobby as "bucko" while giving advice)
      Bobby: "Bucko"?
      Andy: Yeah, I don't know where that came from.

    • Bobby: "The Boyfriend Hat"?
      Andy: It's actually a helmet, but, yeah. Things are different now that you're dating. You used to wear the friend hat or the journalist hat, but now you're the boyfriend, you just get the one. When you wear the boyfriend hat, you gotta agree with her.
      Bobby: But what if she's wrong?
      Andy: She's never wrong. You're in the back car of this roller coaster, bucko; you don't do the steering!

    • Andy: Let me help you out, Bobby. See, you're in a relationship now. What you think, your opinions - they don't matter anymore. If you want to be happy, just remember this - she's always right.

    • (Talking about P.J. being mad because the guys believe she got a promotion because of her looks)
      Mike: P.J., you're hot and you know sports, it's a novelty.
      Brendan: Hot chicks make everything better. Hot chicks and football - cheerleaders.
      Mike: Hot chicks in politics - Sarah Palin.
      Kenny: You still think she's hot?
      Mike: Dude, it's the glasses; I got a thing for smart chicks.
      Kenny: You still think she's smart!?

    • Bobby: Friday's bad for me, because I'm taking my lady out to celebrate her big promotion.
      Brendan: That's cool. How about you, Peej, you free?
      PJ: I'm his lady.
      (All the other guys say "Oh Yeah")
      Bobby: You guys are all still getting used to that, huh?
      Brendan: It's not dropping in, I don't know why.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Sixteen minutes into the episode, the boys are playing poker at P.J.'s apartment, and she enters the place looking uncharacteristically all glammed up and girly. P.J. then explains the reason for that is that she had taken some photos for her column. But later, when she and Stephanie are sitting at the coffee place, a bus goes by with an advertisement for P.J.'s column on it - and the image that appears is actually from the April 2007 Season 1 gallery photoshoot for the show, by Ben Watts.
