  • Holly throws Oprah a birthday party.

    This episode was hilarious. I really enjoyed watching this episode. It was very well written. I especially loved the part where Richie says that he is a player sarcastically. This episode alone can get the show a second season. I really like Richie. The script was very well written, as always. I am amazed by how funny the series is. I enjoyed every minute of this episode. It was just so perfect. This episode is definitely a series classic. This episode was above average. The actors shined on screen. It is the reason I watch this series. It is a very fine example. It is yet another great installment.moreless

  • Torn between two lovers.

    6.0
    I hope that the series will start to get better, but I have issues. What I like is one of the characters which is torn between Sara Gibert and that girl in the wheel chair. That is probaby the best plotline of the series, the rest of the episode is the same old, same old. Lizzy Caplan use to be the only good person in the seriews. Now I got two, adding Sara Gilbert. A mild impovement over the last couple of weeks. I'll watch next week and that plotline improves, then I raise the rating. But for now ikt's a 6.o. but that's an improvement. We'll wait and see next week.moreless
  • This episode marks a great turning point for this show.

    9.8
    This show was ok to begin with and did have potential; I thought I would continue to watch it because there aren’t a lot of good sitcoms on TV anymore.



    I am glad that I did because since the ending of last week’s episode and this whole episode the show has taken a fantastic turning point.



    It has made the slow beginning seem worthwhile watching, It leaves you wanting to tune in to the next week to see how these events will alter the future episodes.



    This show is starting to blend the characters in a realistic manner and once it does the comedy comes out in spades.



    It also has some great drama emerging creating a full rounded show, It’s beginning to feel like a dysfunctional FRIENDS or FRIENDS with baggage if you like.



    Please if you enjoy great sitcoms start tuning in to this one from now on you will not regret it.moreless

    • Sue: You lied to me! You let me introduce you to my kid!
      Ethan: I totally hear where you're coming from but, look at it from my side.
      Sue: What's your side?
      Ethan: It's pretty much the same as your side, except you're rooting for me more?
      Sue: Well, whatever your name is, you're a real jerk! (leaves)
      Kyle: (to Ethan) You know um, this might not be the best time to tell you but uh, the puppet people aren't coming.

    • Kat: (to Lina, about Sue) She came into this bar and she thought that Ethan was her blind date, and since she was like incredibly hot, he said he was. But now they've been going out a week and he still hasn't told her the truth. It's like my new favorite show!

      Nicole: Sure.

    • (Lina talking to Richie on the phone)

      Lina: Really?
      Richie: Yeah, I will literally be there with bells on!

    • (Richie and Duncan are on a scaffolding in Nicole and Yonk's living room)
      Richie: If you fell from here, would you die?
      Duncan: Nah.
      Richie: Would I?

    • Lina: Oh, no no no no no no no...I just told Richie I loved him!

      Nicole: What?
      Richie: I'm freaking out because I told Lina I loved her before I told her I'm married.
      Duncan: You're married?
      Nicole: Oh, my God.
      Duncan: Like you have a wife?
      Richie: Uh-huh.
      Duncan: Like you go home... at the end of the day... to a woman who's... who's like, your wife?
      Richie: Right.
      Nicole: And Lina doesn't know?
