  • Dylan tries to contact Helena.

    Let me just start off by saying that all things considered, I absolutely loved this episode. All of the story lines in this episode were great, but Helena's storyline was definitely my favorite of all the storylines. I'm so glad that they brought Dylan back because I absolutely loved them when they were together in season three. I can't wait to see where things go between them this time. The Jenny and Shane storyline was definitely my second favorite storyline in this episode. I also loved Alice and Tasha's storyline. I found it very amusing. I'm really anxious to see where the whole thing with Jaime Chen becoming the third wheel in Alice and Tasha's relationship 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

    • Alice: (referring to Helena) You guys, we have to figure out someone we can set her up with.
      Shane: There isn't anyone.
      Helena: Well no, no, no. I don't want to be fixed up with anybody.
      Alice: Shh! We're trying to think.
      Jenny: Jodi!
      Alice: What is this, recycling? Plastic, paper lesbians? Someone new, someone fresh!

    • Alice: (re: Shane and Jenny) They're still on each other.
      Tasha: Like white on rice.

    • Jenny: Oh wow. (showing two shirts to Shane to get rid of) Carmen.
      Shane: No, no, no, no. Umm... No, I wanna have some sort of... remembrance of her, however small.
      Jenny: Why? That's the old Shane. You know, the one that couldn't honor her commitments. You're not like that anymore. What?
      Shane: I'm not throwing her away.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Shane: (to Jenny, referring to her art supplies) Picasso, you haven't used these since we've been living together.

      This is a reference to Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), a Spanish sculptor and painter who was one of the most well-known artists of the 20th century. Picasso is famous for the wide range of styles used in his art and as one of the founders of the Cubist movement.

    • Jenny: (to Shane, referring to a black and white sweater) For example, this reminds me of my Jean Seberg look, which I am not that into.

      Jean Seberg was an actress who starred in a number of American and French films from the 1950s to 1970s. She was born in 1932 and died in 1979 of a suspected suicide.

    • Bette: (to Marci) Did you see Beverly Hills Chihuahua? Angie loved that movie.

      Beverly Hills Chihuahua is a 2008 Disney comedy movie. The cast includes Jamie Lee Curtis and Piper Perabo; Drew Barrymore provides the voice for one of the dogs.
