  • Marjorie crashes a party and then Heather shows up unannounced too.

    Fabulous episode even though I don't like all the events in it.

    For one, I think Adam's a jerk to sleep with Marjorie while still married to Heather. Again, this episode showed that Marjorie only cares about Marjorie. Making advances on Adam while he's married to another woman, no matter if he's her ex-fiance is not cool. Admittedly, Adam reciprocated the advances which is why I called him a jerk. He's also an idiot to break up with Heather, whom I guess will be written out of the series. Guess Adam will be alone for a while.

    I really liked that Brian stood up for Bridget and defended her and I liked that Deena and Ivy apologies to Bridget. Bridget was right, they did not give her a fair chance and the way they chose Marjorie's side was totally unfair on Heather.

    The big twist about Bridget and Brian both out of a job now, will be interesting in the upcoming episodes.moreless

    I thought this was one of the best episodes that the series has produced. I thought the exclusion of Nicole in this episode really helped the storyline advance. A lot of big shockers were dropped in this episode and I loved each and every one of them. Adams controversy with Heather and Marjorie ended in a way that no one would have expected. TO be honest I was happy that he broke it off with Marjorie, but was dumbfounded when he broke up with Heather right afterwards in one of the biggest twists of the season. With Adam now single and unwillingness to get back together with Marjorie, there is a lot of questions concering his new role in the show as well as Marjorie (Heather will likely just be written off). The other big bomb of the episode was that Brians father skipped town with all of the companys money, which will now force Bridget to leave her condo and move in with Brian I beleive. I dont know where that twist will go as far as both of them finding new jobs, but the next episode should be interesting.moreless
  • Well, everything changes in this episode. I guess the writers were bored...

    Adam breaks off the opportunity to get back with Marjorie after sleeping with her again at the friends cabin by the lake. Then he goes home and breaks it off with Heather too.

    After the weekend in the cabin, Brian and Bridgette get back to the office to find that his dad left the country and the business and their jobs are all gone.

    Maybe the fans weren't liking where the show was heading, so the writers decided to blow it all up, and start over.moreless
  • Very Exciting episode...Friends gather at the lake house before Brian's father sells the place. Heather decides not to go and Marjorie shows up...

    In my opinion a great episode. Adam and Marjorie reunite for a night. Heather gives him an ultimatum..it's her or Marjorie... Adam decides that he can't go back to Marjorie she left him to find herself. Adam decidees it's his turn. He returns home ot Heather and breaks things off. Looks like adam is going to find himself alone for a while. Brian and Bridget try to figure out who is moving where. Brian takes a giant leap and sticks up for Bridget when his friends don't give her a chance. Looks like he really likes this one.. HE's going all in! They return from the Lake House and find themselves unemployed. Brian's father is having trouble with the IRS! Dina and Dave make the difficult decision about Carrie.. THey will go through with the surgery. In a nutshell they just gave us a multitude of storylines they are going to cover. THe show was in a rut with the last episodes being predictable. This one however was not. I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes...moreless
  • Powerful; emotional; I'm glad the storyline keeps moving right along. Some episodes get a bit bogged-down and predictable, but this one was great.

    Powerful; emotional; I'm glad the storyline keeps moving right along. Some episodes get a bit bogged-down and predictable, but this one was great. And wouldn't you love to have that vacation home? "just a little cottage out on the lake". That's the one gripe I have about this show: everyone seems just a little too successful, or ... things seem to come a little too easily to all these folks. Not a very typical (realistically) bunch of people. The same complaint that is often made about the day time soap opera shows. It seems the only thing this bunch has to worry about is their relationship problems.moreless

    • At the end when Bridget and Adam are standing at the front of the real estate office Bridgets mouth goes from being open and shut during the different shot changes.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Deena: Bridget, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for the way I behaved with you this weekend. We are overprotective of Brian. It's just he's very, very special to us, you know, and he's always around and I think we feel jealous to see him loving someone else...
      Ivy: I barely know the guy, so I have no excuse at all, except that you're the hottest girl here and my husband is the hottest guy, so...
      Bridget: I don't think your husband is the hottest guy here...
      Ivy: Oh, you don't?
      Bridget: No...
      Ivy: Well then honey, let's be best friends!
