Overton uses an air compressor to clean dust out of the girls' kitchen window. He impresses Synclaire with a fact about dust being composed mainly of dead skin cells. She shows off the cake she has made for Khadijah's birthday, and starts to put candles on it. Overton shares that he doesn't like candles on a cake because it requires someone to blow his or her breath all over the food that others will eat. He tries to use the compressor on the cake, and sprays frosting all over Synclaire...Read the full recap
Overton: Candles on a birthday cake. That's one tradition I could do without. I mean, what other time do you ask a person to blow their breath all over the food you're about to eat?
Synclaire: When I was little, my family used to take long car trips to our cabin in Wisconsin. And all I can remember is my parents getting mad at me 'cause I had to go to the bathroom every 20 minutes. It got to the point where I was scared to say anything.
Khadijah: You have to go now, don't you?
Khadijah: What are you doing?
Synclaire: I'm putting on my make-up. Why else do you think there's a mirror up there? To watch yourself sleep?
Regine: Turn the lights on so the roaches don't move in.
(Kyle looks at Max.)
Kyle: Too late.
Khadijah: Everybody ready to yell "surprise"?
Synclaire: Ready! Come on in!
Regine: You want me to drive?
Max: I'm fine. Why?
Regine: Oh, I don't know. The sparks off the guardrail were a little distracting.
Regine: Max, this was supposed to be a junior suite.
Max: Ooh. Look who's getting picky about where she sleeps.
Regine: (to Khadijah) Miss Girl, are you coming downstairs? 'Cause I only got a couple hours till this hair goes flat.
Flip: The devil made me do it!
Khadijah and Synclaire convince Flip Wilson to recite a catch phrase from his famous character, Geraldine.
Khadijah: There's only three birthdays that matter. When you're 16, you're sweet. When you're 21, you're legal. When you're 65, you get to eat at Denny's half-price.

Overton: I hear Engelbert Humperdinck is gigging at the Trump Plaza.

Flip: Here come de judge, here come de judge.
Ed McMahon convinces Flip to use the phrase (actually a catchphrase of comedian Pigmeat Markham) that he used to introduce a sketch on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.
In return for saying "Here come de judge," Flip convinces Ed McMahon to share his catchphrase from his time as Johnny Carson's sidekick on NBC's Tonight Show.
