Episode Summary

Michael meets his friend Jimmy at the golf club and is impressed with how much hair he's grown with the help of some "miracle" pills called "Come Hair Now". As he starts to take them in overdose, weird stripes of hair rise from his chronically bald head. He also starts to get paranoid that Jay is trying to kill him after they take out life insurance. Meanwhile, Kady becomes very jealous of Claire when she volunteers to be on the big sister program.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • During Michael's gibbering in the bushes as he talks to himself, he speaks in three different voices. At least one is the Jamaican accent he used in the 'Hey Man' sketches on In Living Color, a television series in which Damon Wayans (Michael) co-starred with David Alan Grier (a guest star in this episode).

      • You can see the glue/tape holding the hair in place when the camera closes in on Damon's head.

      • When Kady tells Franklin to shut up and give her the phone, Franklin grins and looks at the camera.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Junior has been looking at a book of baby names; the family has been trying to help him come up with some)
        Michael: You know, you could always name your baby after me.
        Junior: Why would I want to name my kid 'Dad'?

      • Jay: Michael, I went online and found out the main ingredient in these hair pills is THC.
        Michael: The hair cure!
        Jay: No Michael, Tetrahydrocannabinol! The stuff that's in marijuana. Taken in high dosages it makes people paranoid.
        Michael: Oh it does not!
        Jay: Oh yeah? Well let's see, you were only supposed to take one a day, how many have you taken?
        Michael: Only one...every hour.

      • Claire: (playing telephone with Kady after finding out she got Claire dismissed as a big sister) Ring ring, now you pick it up. (Kady picks up) Hello, what's that? You're calling about your daughter Claire? (Kady looks worried) You say that she's been in rehab? And that she's on parole for beating up her little sister? Well you must be psychic because I didn't do that until just now.

      • (Michael is singing an annoying song about his hair)
        Jay: Michael! Will you stop it?! You're driving me crazy!
        Michael: What? I'm just singing about my new love, Jay. My hair. Isn't it beautiful?
        Jay: No, it looks ridiculous.
        Michael: No, you're jealous. I live in a world full of hair haters, Jay. You see this hair? Look at this, Jay. Northeast inverted, that's new growth. And you see this hair in the sub-
        Jay: Oh my God.
