  • Shane and Jenny Really???

    8.5
    I hate that Shane and Jenny are getting together, they are my two favorite people on the show but I don't think that I like them together. I hope that they don't write it so that Bette messes around with plastic surgery girl. She use to be hot but not she looks so fake I hate to even look at her. The club was a good idea to write into the show it gets them a place to all congregate at night although I am not sure I like it better that they when they would all congregate of the coffee shop after hours.moreless
  • Shane tries to make amends with Jenny.

    Let me just start off by saying that all considered, I absolutely loved this episode. This episode was absolutely fantastic! All of the story lines in this episode were great, especially Helena's and the whole Jenny and Shane storyline. I'm so glad that Dylan is back because I absolutely loved the whole Dylan and Helena romance in season three so I'm really excited to see where things go with Dylan and Helena this season. I absolutely loved Jenny in this episode. Mia Kirshner did an amazing job of playing Jenny in this episode, but then again, I think that she always does a wonderful job of playing Jenny. I loved the whole Jenny and Shane storyline, and I'm really looking forward to see where that storyline goes. I loved all of the Bette and Tina stuff in this episode. I'm also looking forward to seeing where the whole Bette and Kelly storyline goes. I'm also anxious to see where Max's storyline goes. All in all, I thought that this was a very well written, well acted and well made episode of The L Word from everyone involved, and I can't wait to see the next episode of The L Word.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Alice: We're gonna make a list. Um, clear the desk.
      Tasha: What kind of a list?
      Alice: A pros and cons list. My mother used to make these all the time when she was trying to decide whether she was going to divorce her ex-husbands.
      Tasha: And that's the model we're going to follow?
      Alice: Well, she had very successful divorces.

    • Helena: You manipulated my emotions, you used me, and you humiliated me! Are you fucking insane to think you can just prance in here, act as if nothing ever happened, tell me that you're happy, tell me that you're out of the closet, tell me that you're, oh, so sorry for destroying my fucking life! Fuck you! (stomps off)
      Dylan: Thank you!
      (Helena stops dead in her tracks.)
      Dylan: Now I know you care.

    • Alice: (recapping Helena's life to Tasha) And don't get me started on the kids 'cause where did they go?

    • Alice: (pointing behind her) Twelve o'clock, the filling in the lesbo sandwich.
      Kit: You gotta be kiddin' me: Dylan. Did she come out of the closet?
      Tasha: That girl used to be straight?
      Alice: Well, she wasn't gay back when she was fucking Helena.

    • Jenny: You create this trail of destruction and you don't take any responsibility for it. Why should you be the only one that doesn't pay?
      Shane: I am paying.
      Jenny: You are so full of shit.

    • Alice: Fuck, you know? Bad vibes. You and Shane should work your shit out, because this place is becoming like the black hole of Calcutta.

    • Jenny: Excuse me, Alice? Do you mind just mentioning to Shane that I don't want her waffles.
      Alice: Yeah. (to Shane) Hey. Um... she doesn't want your waffles.
      (Jenny gets up with the waffle plate in her hand.)
      Tina: (discussing the new and improved Planet with Bette) Oh, and waffles! Look! I love it, I love waffles. I'm getting waffles.
      (Jenny dumps the waffles into the trash.)

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Movie Marketer: The Girls. It's so fucking hot, it's gonna make Sex and the City look like a Disney movie.

      Sex and the City was an HBO TV series that ran from 1998 to 2004 about four women living in New York City. The series also led to a 2008 movie with the same name.

    • Alice: I'm just sayin'! Of all the gin joints in all the world...

      Referring to Dylan's presence in Helena's club (out of all clubs in LA), this is a rendition of a famous quote from the movie Casablanca (1942), spoken by Humphrey Bogart's character about his love: "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."
