    Kenny's home from the hospital, and is very grumpy towards Teri (who is helping out by watching the kids) and his wife, Maxine. He seems to snap out of the doldrums, however, when Lila visits...



    Bird's bladder is back to normal. Her brush with death has given her a new outlook on life. She mentions several times that she is "only 26", and that she wants to have some fun. She goes out with some girlfriends and dances with different guys, and is indeed having a good time...until Lem shows up with the baby and demands that she come home.



    Christine (played by Degrassi High's Anais Granofsky) pays a visit to her ex Damon. Ahmad kisses both Callie and Keisha...oh brother!



    A very good episode, because shows character development for each of the main characters.moreless
  • This episode was one that hits close to home for most black families, because of what Lem said to Reggie.

    9.0
    This episode was one that made you really stop and think. Kenny comes home and you can easily tell that he is trying to cover his fear of not being able to go back to work with angry and rudeness. Yet when the break from that storyline, and cut to the conversation between Lem and Reggie in Ahmad's room the episode took on a new sense of family concern and value. Reggie walks up on Lem like he does Ahmad saying "Whatz up, dawg.", and Lem responds to that by saying, "I ain't you dawg or your rolla-rolla. I'm Lem." Then when Lem breaks down for Reggie the whole experience of getting arrested; cavity-searched, and then tells him about what the nothing-to-lose brothas or the racist inmate will do to other inmates you could easily see that it struck a nerve in Reggie re-establishing the fear that he should have concerning the law and the prison system. Last by not least, this episode also helped to build the character of Damon which was easily seen nine minutes before the end of the episode when it cut to Damon sitting on his bed in his apartment on top of his burgency cover completely butt-botty naked with the square pillow that matched the color of the cover in between his thighs covering "the reason why Teri and Christine were hooked on him, and why Nicole Parker (Teri) married him after the show in the last season of the show, and then later on in real-life after doing their UPN show, "Second Time Around".moreless
