Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Richard meetsa Christines boyfreind

    The 4th installment in this great new series, was, unfortunetly the worst. But that just shows how great the first 3 weeks.

    While not as good as the first 3, this episode was still very fun and enjoyable. The only thing I don\'t enjoy about this episode was how mean Richard could be. The return of New Christine I thought would be funny, but I was a little disappointed.

    Besides these things, this epiosde was great. Christines son, Richard Jnr, was absolutely hilarous and had the best lines of the episode (What Intercourse? Erm, something to do with golf). More great performances by Julia and cast.

    I hope Christine relationship can last and long happy time (though, knowing Christine, it won\'t)

    While the worst thus far, still a wonderful episode and looking forward to more.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • "One Toe Over The Line, Sweet Jesus," is, word for word, a line that Grace Adler said in an episode of Will & Grace entitled "Three's a Crowd, Six is a Freak Show." Both writer Adam Barr and crew member Kari Lizer were crew members on Will & Grace.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Richard: You probably shouldn't think of me while you're having sex with Burton.
      Christine: Richard, I didn't even think of you while I was having sex with you.

    • Richard: Hey, sorry about that thing with Burton. I was just trying to be funny.
      Christine: Well, it wasn't funny. It was Benny Hill not funny.
      Richard: Benny Hill's hilarious!
      Christine: I'm not having this conversation again!

    • Ritchie: Uncle Matthew, where does my mom go when she goes out?
      Matthew: Where does she tell you she goes?
      Ritchie: She just says she's going out.
      Matthew: She fights crime.
      Ritchie: Why does she get so dressed up?
      Matthew: It's part of her disguise. She brushes her hair and wears clean clothes so people won't recognize her.

    • Christine: I shouldn't call you every night before I go to sleep.
      Richard: I shouldn't just drop by unannounced.
      Christine: That way we can avoid running over each other's dates.
      Richard: Seems a little extreme, but okay.

    • Ritchie: Why do people go on dates?
      Matthew: People like to hang out with other people their own age.
      Ritchie: Then why don't you date her?
      Matthew: Most people like to date outside their immediate family. In fact there's a law—a good law.

    • Matthew: Hey, you've gotta see this. A woman's having enough fat removed to fill an entire trash can.
      Christine: What channel?
      Matthew: 46. It's the grossest thing I've ever seen.
      Christine: Oh, that's disgusting! Who would watch this? (keeps watching it)

    • Matthew: (reading an Operation game card)
      "Remove the Adam's apple,
      including the core,
      you'll end up with money,
      and a friend's galore."

    • Ritchie: What's intercourse?
      Matthew: Something to do with golf, you should ask your mom.
      Ritchie: Does mom golf?
      Matthew: She's been known to hit the links.
