Episode Quotes
Max: You can do anything, girl. You're a renaissance woman.
Khadijah: You know, I have been called that. But I usually just blush and say, "Go on, now."

Overton: (to Synclaire) "Macking honeydips"? Baby, you're a man, not a gigolo.

Max: (to Synclaire) I think it's amazing you've been able to pull this off this long.
Regine: Why? You've been hiding your five o'clock shadow for years.

Overton: (to Synclaire) Baby, that little girl just tried to roll up on you. I've created some kind of mack daddy monster!

Phil: This is the part of the evening where we like to get back to our roots. Improvisation. Throw a situation at us.
Max: How 'bout a pompous stockbroker that dumps a beautiful lawyer?
Khadijah: Let it go, Max.

Phil: Jimmy is a woman. Shocking.
Marco: Oh. So that's why I was attracted to him.
Phil: Now tell me why was I?



Cultural References
Synclaire: I'll tell you what I'm gonna do, Ike...

Overton and Synclaire recite lines as Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett portraying Ike and Tina Turner in the 1993 film What's Love Got to Do With It?

Overton: Sweet Daddy from Good Times was a Gotham Player?

Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal and the late Theodore Wilson are mentioned as alumni of the group for which Synclaire is auditioning, and Overton is especially excited about the latter's role in the 1970s sitcom.

Synclaire (as Jimmy) Yo, Keyshawn's in the end zone, right? Ball hits him in the numbers, bounces out of bounds. You know what I'm saying? Come on! Give me the silly old ball! I could rock it. (Overton clears throat.) Oh right. Damn ball. Give me the damn ball!

A reference to New York Jets wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson, who had a cameo earlier in the season, and his autobiography, Give Me the Damn Ball.

Tripp: (to Khadijah) Well, you wasn't exactly Stevie Wonder on the keyboard either.

Tripp compares Khadijah's skills less than favorably to those of legendary singer/songwriter/musician Stevie Wonder.
