  • Explores some old character dynamics..

    Barry Watson has never looked like he has ever a part of the show. Finally, we do get an episode centered around him. So, Todd gets to interview for a job, where he is against a Pulitzer prize winning photographer - Wes Green. Apparently, Wes gets the prize as he takes on the assignment which should have been Todd's, if not for erased voicemail courtesy of Sam. So Sam, tries to make things up by slashing Wes' care tire so he would not go for the interview. Todd gets the job, but Sam soon learns that Wes needs the job badly to get hold of his already shattered life. Todd compromises and Wes gets the job.

    On the other hand, we see Regina trying to sell Dena's house much without her approval. Howard dives in and prevents the sale. Overall, a decent and watchable episode. There were a few funny bits, like Andrea carrying a steak knife and Frank and Todd being buddies to learn Chinese.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Samantha: (opening monologue) There are people in the world who have no one in their life. No one to come home to. No one to share their day with. (sees Todd brushing his teeth and cleaning his ears in her bathroom) Those people are so lucky... (end monologue) Okay, so like I was saying, except the opposite, it is a nice thing to have people in your life. You just have to remember that they're in charge of their own destiny. And that you can't control them, no matter how much you want to. No matter how much they really need you to take the wheel, don't do it. All you can do is give them a nudge in the right direction and hope for the best. The good news is, you have more time to focus on your own life. To solve your own problems, big and small. Like how to do a crossword puzzle when you have amnesia.

    • Regina: Samantha, you don't understand. To get listings, you have to have a listing. It's like it's easier to get a job when you're working or to meet a man when you're dating somebody else. Oh, listen to me, I'm talking to someone who doesn't have a job or a man.

    • Samantha: And all I cared about was going to Mexico. And I completely ruined a guy's entire life.
      Dena: You must feel awful. How was Cancun?
      Samantha: Dena, sweetie, I never get to remember the good parts. Only the screwing-over-people parts.

    • (after Wes Green parks his car in front of Andrea's)
      Samantha: I gotta figure out what I'm going to say to him. I need some sort of plan.
      Andrea: I should have sex with him.
      Samantha: How's that gonna help my plan?
      Andrea: What plan?

    • (as Todd leaves for his new job)
      Samantha: I totally got him that job. Which we will file under zip it, right?
      Frank: I just know there goes my Chinese study buddy.
      Wes Green: (pointing at Samantha while crossing the street) You! Right there!
      Samantha: Frank, don't go anywhere.
      Frank: Don't worry. (speaks in Chinese) I will send a fax to him.

    • Todd: Sam?
      Samantha: (caught trying to slash the tires of Todd's jeep; breathing heavily) You know, that Martha Stewart is a whackadoo. (holding up the knife) Because this does not sharpen knives. Nope, it doesn't.

    • Todd: Sam, come on. I think you know you pull the strings but you're not God. You don't control the universe.
      Samantha: That's very sweet, Todd. But it's just not true.
      Todd: Believe me, I would love to blame you for everything bad that's ever happened. And not giving me that message, yeah, that was bad. No, but since then I might have made a few wrong moves on my own.
      Samantha: No, you said, I always kept you down.
      Todd: Well, I was mad. The truth is I've never been a big self-starter. When we were together, you kinda kicked my ass into gear.
      Samantha: Really?
      Todd: Which is maybe why since we've been apart, I have kinda sputtered.
      Samantha: Oh.
