  • Old Christine goes blond.

    A solid episode from this show, definitely eventful. The plot lines continue to be a tad bit too ridiculous for my liking, but the episode itself was enjoyable. New Christine has been cranky lately, so Old Christine decides to make her over as they go to a salon. Old Christine isn't doing this from the kindness of her heart. This is just to distract New Christine, since Richard & Matthew are planning a surprise wedding, much to New Christine's father's discomfort. He wont allow the wedding to continue. Now Richard has to battle it out with him. For the bagels. Meanwhile Old Christine's hair gets ruined so she ends up having to dye it blond. Definitely a hilarious situation. And it was nice to see Julia-Louis Dreyfus with blond hair. Once all is said & done, the wedding does not continue. And Old Christine stays a blond. A ridiculous joke they have on here is when Matthew is hitting on Old Christine, his sister. Sure, it was for laughs, still pretty sick when you think about it.Old Christine also unsuccessfully gets New Christine's father back for what he did to her. Meanwhile Barb tries to officially make herself a citizen of the US. First she has to take a test, which is the the situational comedy of the plot. A solid episode.moreless

    • Jeff: Christine? I didn't recognize you!
      Christine: (With blonde hair) I know, I didn't want to look like this. I wanted to look good for you.
      Jeff: You do! You've never looked better to me than you do right now! I love you as a blonde! Can I toast you a bagel?
      Christine: I don't know what that means, but I like the sound of it.

    • Richard: I'm not afraid to fight you! (Papa Jeff tackles him)
      Matthew: Oh, my God, this is already better than the first wedding!

    • Richard: I want you to know that I love your daughter, and I plan to make an honest woman out of her.
      Jeff: Can I talk to you guy-to-guy? If you try and marry my daughter, I'll kick your ass.
      Matthew: Just his, right? Because I'm just the choreographer.

    • Richard: (to Jeff) You can't forbid me from marrying your daughter! (to Matthew) Can he?
      Matthew: I don't know. A man who eats that many carbs and looks like that can probably do whatever he wants.
