  • Pepper Dennis once again hits the spot with an awesome episode that has me laughing, cringing, and dying for more

    When most TV shows touch on "important issues" like drugs, homosexuals, abortion, alcohol, etc. They do it in a way that is cheesey and causes the watch to switch to something more, well, less cheesey. The great thing about this show is that it can do it because its in the news. And Pepper Dennis is a reporter. The writers cleverly deal with the basis through the eyes of a reporter and a major football player. It's nicely done.

    The relationship between Pepper and Babcock continues to grow to the point where I throw myself at the screen screaming"Kiss Him! Kiss Her! The Waiting Is Slowly Sucking The Life Out Of Me And I Can't Take It Anymore!"

    Kathy is perfect as the older sister making Pepper do the right thing and is a perfect sweetheart, tuning in to other peoples needs.

    All around, another great episode.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Charlie: Dennis, you can't do this.
      Pepper: Babcock, you have to stop reacting like this every time I meet a guy.
      Charlie: No forget that. This is my dinner. I should have been at that fundraiser today, where I should have hit it off with Grady.
      Kimmy: Someone has a man-crush.
      Charlie: He's my pig-skin god.

    • Milford: We've got a homo on our hands, no question.
      Charlie: That's impossible.
      Milford: He thought you were interested and he was testing the waters. When he found out he was barking up the wrong tree so to speak he covered with the nice watch line, which incidentally we've been using for centuries.
      Charlie: Is there a codebook for all this?
      Milford: No, but I'd be happy to provide you with some useful literature.

    • Pepper: He commented on your...
      Charlie: No, he said I had a nice watch, which is code for penis. There is more code in gay culture than a covert CIA operation. I can't expect you to understand at all. The point is...
      Pepper: That you're a jackass? If he's so gay why is he dating me?

    • Gay Guy 1: You work with Pepper Dennis right?
      Gay Guy 2: We love her.
      Gay Guy 1: Yeah, we're obsessed. I went as her for Halloween.
      Gay Guy 2: What's she really like?
      Charlie: Drunk. All the time, and meaner than a wet alley cat.

    • Pepper: Are you sure you guys can't switch teams?
      Grady: Oh come on, I'm not the one for you anyway.
      Pepper: What are you talking about?
      Grady: I just came out to over a billion people, and you two can't admit that you two are hot for each other? The truth will set you free Miss Dennis.

    • Grady: This is incredible. I don't know what to say.
      Charlie: Well you can go out and tell those reporters camped out there whatever you... (sees trophies) Oh my God, Mecca. (Walks over to look at trophies)
      Pepper: I apologize for him.

    • Les: Why are my anchor and my star reporter standing around like two idiots at Grady Harper's coming out party? Are you trying to get me disinherited?
      Pepper: We got an exclusive with Grady after his announcement. He cries. Enjoy.
      Les: Well that's better.

    • Pepper: Les, throwing me on the field with the Chicago Cheetahs' quarterback is absurd. It's like asking Blanca to put on underwear.
      Blanca: She's right. It's just not done.

    • Kimmy: (to Pepper) They say no amount of lip smacking can take this lip gloss off. Your mission, prove them wrong.

    • Pepper: (After falling backward over a wheelchair, she sees a figure standing in the light) God?
      Grady Harper: Not quite Miss.
