  • My favorite episode

    This was my favorite episode from the show. Because Jennifer had a lesson in humility when she went to talk Sherman to try and convince him not to drop the station after what Herb did. She fixed herself up but when he arrived she saw that Sherman's blind so her routine won't work on him. And she was about to leave but Sherman couldn't help but be attracted to her scent. And she eventually won him over.moreless

    • Mr. Carlson: Well, Herb, what do you think? What we have here is an ad for Soul Suds Shampoo, a shampoo that's exclusively marketed to the hip black customer. Am I right?
      Herb: Yes, sir.
      Mr. Carlson: Then why are we looking at a picture of this really idiotic-looking white man?
      Herb: (into the phone) You call yourselves printers? There were fifty photos of a black guy in a tuxedo holding a bottle of shampoo, and one photo of a white guy barbecuing, and you used the white guy! ... I don't care which photo I marked. I made the mistake and you people were supposed to catch it, that's what I pay you for. Don't you remember? I screw up everything! You should know that if it comes from me, it's wrong!

    • Johnny: Here's how we do it. We go into the supermarket. (to Bailey) You create a ruckus in the produce section. (to Venus) You grab the poster, slip it under your jacket, we're out the door!
