Episode Summary

The Nolan Family
Paris and Nicole are preggers! Well, sorta. The girls strap on 35-pound pregnancy suits and take the place of a nine-month-pregnant stay-at-home wife. Shopping and parties are out of the question as Paris and Nicole struggle to clean house, raise a three-year-old, survive Lamaze class...and hit the strip clubs? Yep, the girls do pregnancy their own way! So, when Nicole takes Mr. Nolan to a nudie joint, Mrs. Nolan's hormones go through the roof.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Paris: I feel like I'm getting gang banged!

    • Nicole: (To Shari on the phone) Sorry, sweetie I got to go my hands are full of your husband's nipple hair.

    • Nicole: I showed Mr. Nolan a good time. I know I had a list of things to do that day, but he needed one last hurrah. When I saw him with those strippers in his lap, I knew I had done the right thing.

    • Paris: I helped deliver a baby for them and baby-proof their house. Mr. Nolan was a pervert in Lamaze class; he was rubbing my ass. I'm pressing sexual harassment charges!

    • Doug: You left the vacuum running.
      Nicole: I didn't know how to turn it off. Is it the same button as on?

    • Paris: I have a confession to make.
      Shari: What?
      Paris: When I was wearing the pregnancy suit, it was really heavy, so I took out the weights and filled it with popcorn.

    • Narrator: They'll have to take on the roles of traditional housewives.
      Paris: (moans)
      Narrato: That's right; housewives.
      Nicole: I don't know how to do that.

  • NOTES (5)

    • This is the first season where the theme song is written/performed by We 3 Kings but the vocals are performed by someone else. The vocals are performed by Sara Haze.

    • The season features Paris and Nicole playing "Wife" to a different family every episode, in a similar manner to Wife Swap. The girls alternate between the family each episode, with the family then deciding which of them was better in the role.

    • The episode manages to draw 1.3 million viewers. While those ratings would have been dismal for Fox, it was actually more than four times E!'s prime-time average. And in key adult demographic groups, ratings more than tripled from the network's average.

    • This is the first of only two episodes this season that Paris and Nicole appear together in the same scene.

    • The opening sequence has changed this season. The majority of the opening is cartoon versions of Paris and Nicole, and the lyrics have also changed because of the wives theme this season.
