  • This new show seems to get a little bit better every week. In this episode, the boys (facetiously, The Wrecking Crew) head out for some 'clubbing' while the ladies (including a new resident) stay home for some 'cat-fighting'(?)moreless

    Our hero, Josh, is coming to the conclusion that he is barking up the wrong tree with Hope and says as much to the guys. In support, they are going to take him out for a night on the town and help him move on (even though Saul is not convinced - remember he has been sniffing the wrong squirrel for 19 straight years in Raquel Welch). When the bouncer at the night club realizes that Jeffrey Tambor is not Dr. Phil (bet this has happened to Tambor in real life and was incorporated in to the show), they head home where the boys meet the newest (and a very cute, lovely) resident, Heather. Josh decides to ask her out, only to find that his real 'soul-mate' Hope, overhears the invitation.

    This series seems to be finding it's pace. Now if they can only stay away from a few of the old cliches they seem to fall back on from time to time. (BTW... this show should be DVR'ed. You will find new, great lines every time you replay it).

    (Not for nothing, but it was established a couple of weeks ago that there are, undeniably, a number of 'biblical' names in this series - Saul, Joshua, Jesus (with a 'J', mind you). In this episode, Hope 'thrice denies' Josh as her boyfriend - for those of you keeping score at home).moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Saul: Back in the '70s, this place was called Bacchus' Retreat. I remember one night Betty White was passed around like a tray of hors d'oeuvres.

    • Saul: (to Josh) No... You could be making time with that beautiful girl at the bar. But, instead, you're here in what can only be described as a total sausage factory.

    • Charlene: Heh, heh, heh. What a funny little purse.
      Hope: Um, no... This is a DVD.

    • Saul: (to Josh) Hey! I did you a favor by crotch-blocking you with that girl. She was... she was not your soul-mate.

    • Josh: I'm nothing!
      Marty: No... you are so not nothing. You... are Joshua Norman Flug.
      Josh: That's not my middle name.
      Marty: Eh... I took a shot.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Dr. Phil
      The nightclub bouncer lets Saul and his 'wrecking crew' cut to the front of the line because he thinks he is Dr. Phil (the TV psychologist who resembles Jeffrey Tambor) when Saul mentions that he works in TV.

    • The Fog
      Charlene (Raquel Welch) tells Hope that she almost starred in The Fog by John Carpenter. In real life, Welch was up for the role, but Adrienne Barbeau got the part.
