    This episode in terms of quality was solid but not as good as the previous episodes. This episode had an ending similar to the premiere, and I'm think US of Tara is building for something big what with the "youwillnotwin" thing and the constant self-mutilation.

    I'm sorry, but I just don't find the Marshall story line interesting this season. He was fine for the first 2 seasons (season 1 being the best), but lately, I just can't stand that kid. So he breaks up with Lionel for someone else, and now he wants to cheat on his current boyfriend with Lionel? Sorry but I can't find reasoning in that.

    Kate's date was so incredibly awkward but entertaining. Interested in seeing where her story line goes, hopefully somewhere exciting cause that's what this show really needs right now. Overall, fair episode with some good moments.moreless

    • Charmaine: Well, last I checked, your partner didn't take a job out of state and leave you home with a wailing infant.
      Kate: Where is that infant?
      Charmaine: oh, shit. (Storms out)

    • Tara: Oh, how's your film going?
      Marshall: In my head, it's unique, nuanced, but when it comes out, it's like... A frog doing somersaults on a field, and you can't see the frog 'cause he's too green and you can't hear him 'cause the grass is too soft.

    • Max: Dudes! I got a lot to be cheerful about. I got a red-hot sexy mama in my kitchen making me a chow-down, a couple of clicks away from my 30th birthday party. Huh? My job uses negative 5% of my brain. And I recently rediscovered Chastity Stargazer.
      Charmaine: Who?
      Max: My vintage Fender Stratocaster electric guitar.

    • Dr. Hattaras: Your essay on schizophrenia was abysmal. But maybe you missed that lecture when you were drving your car into your pregnant sister.

    • Evan: Point -- Evan just got out of a rocky marriage. Point -- Evan has a child. Point -- Evan lives a trillion miles away. Point -- Evan has crabs. Evan doesn't have crabs. That... man, that killed in my head.
      Kate: "Pubic lice" are funnier. Sorry about the wife. Good luck with the kid.

    • Charmaine: Bean curd? What are we making?
      Tara: Miso tofu tacos with ginger cilantro dressing. We're "maxicasion" tonight.

    • Charmaine: "Breath of my soul"?
      Max: Yeah, it's like "Peter Gabriel meets Sting."
      Charmaine: Must they meet?

    • Tara: How goes it in there?
      Max: Like exhuming a corpse. Amps are buzzing, my song's terrible, Ted won't quit messing around. (Ted is heard screaming in the other room) I just put myself on suicide watch.

    • Dr. Hattaras: Sometimes you feel you deserve Ubriaco, but live just gives you Swiss.
