  • Samantha has to move in with Todd and Chloe so she can get round the subletting restrictions.

    Although this episode had some nice moments it was not the best of the season so far. Dena and Regina were funny together and Chloe was totally repulsive. The best scenes, as so often is the case, were with Frank. Sadly, they were very short and few and far between. Howard wasn't in this episode, I haven't seen him for a while. Todd had more to do than in some of the previous episodes which was a good thing. Samantha is remembering more and more now and although she waants to reform, now and then she lapses into Old Sam and it is here the comedy really takes off.moreless
  • Sam, Chloe, Regina, and Dena reveal their b's within.

    While not as snappy as previous episodes, getting more Sam and Todd time made up for the lapse. Todd obviously has a weakness for schizophrenic women as we find that sweet Chloe can play hardball when she feels threatened by Sam. We know that Sam can reach deep into her memory to pull out the evil that her former self wrought with such ease, but the new Sam in apprehensive about delivering such devastation on Chloe. And Chloe played her part to perfection, leaving Sam questioning who was threatening whom. And only Frank has the objectivity to know the truth about both women, even though he can deal with only one crazy woman at a time.

    Back at home, Regina is sulking about being stood up, yet again, by Sam. Fortunately, Dena is just kind-hearted enough to indulge Regina in her beauty queen fantasy, with the help of a little spirited libation. We'll never know what transpired between Regina and Dena so that the turtle appeared on the wall or the concrete rabbit ended up in the Newly's living room. Knowing what lurks in the heart of a woman wronged, we can let our imaginations fill in the blanks as we learn more about what makes each woman tick.moreless
  • Sam is forced to move back in with Todd and his new girlfriend, Chloe. Regina and Dena hang out when Sam misses a makeover night.

    This episode was of Samantha Who? was really funny. It's always entertaining seeing Sam and Todd together. Todd's new girlfiend Chloe is a little crazy but funny. At first she seemed really funny because she seemed too happy when Sam moved in with them, but then when she told Sam to stay away from Todd, things got more entertaining. It was so funny to see Dena and Regina bonding. I never knew how bad Dena could be(okay so what they did wasn't that bad, but still). I laughed so hard when Dena and Regina woke up the next morning and the bunny statue was in the living room and a picture of a turtle was drawn on the wall.moreless

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Frank: Go home. I'll cover for you with Audrey Rhodes.
      Samantha: Really? You would do that for me?
      Frank: Not for you, no. But because that Chloe girl is an evil rag.
      Samantha: So you believe me. You agree she's bad.
      Frank: I don't think either one of you is any prize. But I can only handle one rag at a time.

    • Samantha: Nice little place you got down her. Little TV. You know, there aren't enough inter-racial couples on TV. What show is this?
      Frank: That's us. On the security camera.

    • Andrea: (talking about Chloe moving in with Todd) It is your apartment, why didn't you just tell him no?
      Samantha: I did say no. It just happened to come out as 'get that girl in here'.

    • Samantha: (opening voice over) A little science lesson, listen up and you can have a snack. One type of memory is motor memory... or muscle memory. It's how even an amnesiac can still work a toothbrush, dial a phone; or even skip a rope. Then there's something called emotional memory, things your body just knows, like don't touch fire. Or... I really like this guy.

    • Samantha: I know that I have amnesia but I really don't recall that rabbit thing right there.
      Regina: (about the stolen rabbit statue) That? It's always been there. Now help me bury it in the backyard.

    • Samantha: OK class, a quick review. Muscle memory. Very helpful in remembering things you forgot. But here's the thing -- the heart is also a muscle. Fortunately, the heart remembers most strongly the people who will always love you, no matter what.

    • Samantha: (to Frank) Andrea's bringing me something to wear. But thank you for the coat. I'm sorry if it smells like perfume. Hey, you know, I could write a note to your wife and tell her we didn't have sex.
      Frank: Oh yes, thank you. I think she'd like that.

    • Samantha: That's purple ink! That's what that is. That is the same color of ink that we find on your little Fuzzy.
      Todd: Chloe?
      Chloe: Alright, yeah, I did it. I just felt threatened by her because she is so beautiful and smart.
      Samantha: So not true! Oh, wait, thank you.

    • Dena: Hello? Sam?
      Regina: She's not here!
      Dena: Oh.
      Regina: She's probably in a meeting of Daughters Who Refuse to Do One Thing to Please Their Mothers club.
      Dena: Oh OK. Well, maybe I'll go find her there.

    • Samantha: Thanks again. I know that this is awkward for you guys.
      Todd: No, it's fine. I mean it's just until you convince Audrey Rhodes you're living here, right?
      Samantha: Yeah. Yeah. Of course unless Chloe wants to put on a blonde wig and walk around acting all forgetty.
      Chloe: No. But it's fine. Welcome to our home.
      Samantha: Which I own.

    • (Todd and Samantha talking on the phone)
      Todd: Listen, I made too much chili. And you used to love my chili. So if you're not doing anything tonight...
      Samantha: Yeah! Yeah. Hey, why do they call it chili when it's so hot?

    • Regina: Now it's a good thing your dad's off at that poultry conference. It's a perfect time for us to do a make-over.
      Samantha: You know what, it's also the perfect time to not do make-overs.
