  • 20 minutes of wasted time..

    I was initially sad when I heard about the cancellation. But, I don't know - maybe I find it boring because its canceled, or maybe it is really boring which explains the cancellation. Potayto-Potaato...

    Well, Sam heads a charity foundation with 30 million bucks to blow. She recruits Andrea as her legal guy. To her dismay, Andrea spends time getting pedicures, while work starts to pile up. She then recruits a crazy pessimist of a lawyer, who rejects all proposals. Finally, Sam does all the work herself. We also see Todd making some worthless appearances. And Regina and Howard? It's like I am watching this show while I am about to pass out after a lot of alcohol.

    Why am I writing this review? Why am I watching a canceled show? Does anyone watch this show? Why doesn't any review this show other than me? Do people really read this rant? Why am I asking so many rhetorical questions?moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Samantha: (opening monologue) What happens when you achieve your dream running a multi-million dollar charity foundation but you have no idea what to do? You're like a dog who chases cars and finally catches one. Now what? I guess you chew on the tire for a while until you figure it out.

    • Tyler: Sorry Sam. This guy just walked right by me. He does not have an appointment.
      Winston Funk: Winston. Funk. Name on the building.
      Tyler: Tyler. Banks. Name on the yogurt in the fridge.

    • Dena: Come on, Andrea. Let me be in your wedding. I mean, all the celebrities are gonna be there. And I never got to be a bridesmaid before. The closest thing that I ever got was my mother's pallbearer.

    • (Andrea was previously hired by Samantha for the VP position.)
      Andrea: What's going on?
      Samantha: Maybe I was going to surprise you, Andrea, but now you're ruining it.
      Andrea: Who's that?
      Cheryl: I'm Cheryl Heinstock. Vice President of Legal Affairs.
      Samantha: Surprise! It works a lot better when she jumps out of the cake.

    • Samantha: Let's talk bridal shower. I was thinking maybe some sloppy joes, some ribs. Maybe a dancing bear. You don't have to wrestle it.
      Andrea: That's OK. That's Dena's job now.
      Dena: I have to wrestle a bear? What's the theme of this wedding?

    • Samantha: Good morning, Tyler. Can you grab all the proposals and bring them into my office? And hold all my calls.
      Tyler: I love your sense of purpose. And your bouncy ringlets.

    • Samantha: I have no idea what I'm doing. And you were the only person who would tell me that. And I think it's because you and I will tell each other the things that other people won't.
      Andrea: Or should.
      Samantha: I mean like you and your wedding. Who else is gonna say to you, 'Andrea, stop. What's up with the gay dude?'
      Andrea: No one.
      Samantha: Seriously, the guy's like super gay.

    • Samantha: (end monologue) With my amnesia, I can't dream about things I don't remember, so I dream about the future. Some people don't even want to wake from their old dreams. Some just need to make new ones. Me? For now, I have my hands full just living this one. Until the next one comes along.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Samantha: Oh, my mission statement. Ah, well. It is to boldly go where no man has... yeah, OK. So I don't really know what a mission statement is.

      "Where no man has gone before" is a phrase used in the title sequence of the original Star Trek series -- "These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."
