When hip-hop Rita joins Mavis' rowdy all-girl smoker-poker night, she shows a new side of herself that offends conservative Courtney -- but the hip girlfriend won't hop to his orders to abandon the game and walks out on him, leaving the lawyer crestfallen on the eve of a big job interview. In order to reinvigorate her zombie-like brother before the interview, Mavis recruits Nasim in a desperate bid to reconcile the mismatched lovebrids.moreless

      • Rita: Boo, when are going to let me grease your scalp?

      • Nasim: It's about a little man named George W. Bush.
        Courtney: Go on.
        Nasim: Once upon a time, Georgie took a rich country and he plunged it into depth. He couldn't even pronounce the word terrorists - he called them tourists. And when Georgie could not found the weapons of mass destruction did he crawl under the covers in his cowboy pajamas and cry? No!
        Courtney: What did he do?
        Nasim: What did he do? He got up and he put on a suit. And he faced the world like he knew what the hell he was doing...

      • Jadwiga: Nasim said you were looking for me.
        Mavis: Yes. Tell me you play poker.
        Jadwiga: My husband and I enjoy something similar to poker. It is a slavenian game of chance that is played with dice and knives.

        Nasim: Oh really?

        Mavis: I lied Nasim. It really does matter. Big time!

      • Soo Lin: Yeah. You're such a NAGGER!
        Courtney: What did you say?
