Cupid: My Fair Masseuse

In a riff on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion (the original play upon which the musical My Fair Lady was based), Trevor sets out to retrain a "lower class" massage therapist to make her more acceptable for the family of her "upper class" ex-boyfriend by connecting her with a dialogue coach to disguise her history. Also, Claire thinks she's onto a clue to Trevor's actual past, but is it a faux lead?

Episode Quotes
Debbie: Hey! You might remember me from such embarrassing moments as last night around the toilet.
Trevor: (smiling) Vaguely. Drunk Chick Tuesdays can get crazy in here.

Lita: Eeeeugh!! You'll never guess what I found in Trevor's bedroom! Open your palm. (pours out the contents of a little red bag) They're teeth!
Felix: (mildly disgusted) And I needed them in my hand why?
Lita: Trevor has a bag of teeth under his nightstand. A bag of teeth!
Felix: I am sure there's a logical explanation.
Lita: Uh, yeah, he killed his old roommates and kept their teeth!
Felix: That's where your mind goes?
Lita: Sorry... Where's the 'bag of teeth' Happy Place?
Felix: It's none of our business. Just put his teeth back.

Walter: (dropping his tone, revealing a Boston accent) I got a pretty good idea what it's like, Deb.
Debbie: You, too, Brutus?

Walter: I grew up smart in a part of town where smart got your ass kicked.

Et tu, Brutus? (Latin for "And you, Brutus?") is a line associated with the death of Julius Caesar, as he was killed by members of the Roman Senate for attempting to take on the mantle of emperor. It refers to his reaction to being stabbed by Brutus, who he believed to be a very trustworthy ally.
