Episode Quotes
Kyle: (to Max) What brings you out of your belfrey this God-forsaken morning?

Max: Last week, I gave a speech at the mayor's mansion about New York City sweatshops. Ha, ha, ha. Thank you.
Regine: Why would anybody wanna hear about your bedroom?

Synclaire: Look at us. Speeches and celebrity lunches and... (Looks at Regine, then looks away.) Acting. Pretty soon, we'll be so busy we won't even know each other.
Max: (looking at Regine) I can hardly wait.

Khadijah: Russell, if you gay, you've been doing a hell of a job hiding it.

Regine: Can you believe the ego? I mean, just hogging the spotlight while a roomful of people watch in admiration. I'm going out there!

Russell: Before you go, did you have a good time tonight?
Regine: Promise not to tell anyone?
Russell: Cross my heart. Or better yet, let me cross your heart.
Regine: See, I was about to say I didn't have the worst time in the world. And what did you do? What did you do? You ruined it.
Russell: "Not the worst time in the world." Where I come from, that's as good as saying, "I love you."

Max: Hey fellas, we girls were having a heated debate. The topic: does size matter?
Khadijah: Yeah, you know, we'd love for you to join in.
Kyle: I got a big day tomorrow.
Overton: Yeah. And mine's bigger. Good night.

Regine: If anybody knows how to get rid of men...
Max: It's me. Beat you to it.

Kyle: So, are we still on for Tuesday?
Max: Room 718 at the Paramount. And if you're late, I'm starting without you.

Max: They're showcasing female comics Saturday night at the cafe. I say we grab a table up front and let somebody else make fun of Regine for a change.

Russell: (to Regine) Let's dance. And Lord help you if you're not wearing a sports bra.

Max: You are all important to me. Really. And not just because of the free cable.
