  • Holly tries to make Ben jealous while Val tries to please Rick's mother.

    This episode was hilarious! When Holly sees how many girl fans Ben has, she tries to make Ben jealous. Vince steps in with a plan of his own and makes out with Holly right in front of Ben, and then he goes on to explain that he has never stopped loving Holly, and she's his now, and Ben should leave. Everyone thought Vince was just a good actor, and they let it drop. I can't believe Val went so far as to keep a live goat in her loft! She didn't plan to though. She just wanted to cook unprepared mutton; not knowing the unprepared mutton was actually a live, breathing goat XDmoreless
  • Vince admits his feelings for Holly... well sorta.

    Oh my god, this is like one of the best episodes of Season 3. so much things happen! It's really amazing. Vince kisses Holly 8 times! Then he says what he feels about her, but claims just acting. Woah! That was unexpected. I love the beginning, when first Holly is liking the girl on stage, then when they kiss, she's like "Security! Get that slut off the stage" I love the whole plot line, jealousy at the Tylers. The B plot is just as good, as Val trying to impress Rick's mother, she gets a sheep in the house. Hilarious episode!moreless
  • Pretty good!

    Holly becomes jealous of Ben when a girl kisses him on stage when he is performing, even though she instructed for girls to come on. Val stresses out when Rick tells her that his mother is coming to visit. Val says that his mom doesn't like her and that she likes Julie better. She tries to make her favorite dish, mutton. She and Lauren order it, but it comes as a live sheep. Holly and Vince kiss, in order to make Ben jealous, but Vince really has feelings for Holly.

    This episode was pretty good! I feel sorry for Vince. The whole Val story was a little weird though. This episode gets a 9.0!moreless
