Did You Know?


[Burt, Danny, Jodie, Chuck and Bob are all drunk in a bar]
Jodie: I'm not gonna throw up. I never throw up.
[Burt and Danny laugh]
Burt: What do you mean "I never throw up"?
Jodie: I *never* throw up!
Burt: [laughs] Throwing up is not a choice. You don't say "I'm sorry, I don't play tennis and I don't throw up."
Danny: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I bet I can make him throw up.
Jodie: Oh, yeah?
Danny: Yeah!
Jodie: Okay. Take your best shot.

Episode 41
29 April 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Episode 41 begins with a night on the town with Burt,Danny,Jodie,Chuck,and Bob drowning their sorrows about women, ending with Burt's suggestion to "save this conversation for Buckingham Palace," and leaving a passed out Bob stuck with the tab.In a desperate attempt to make peace with God,Tim decides to go off to live in a cave,hoping to someday return to a disappointed Corinne,admitting that he still loves her.The cops finally catch up with Dutch,who makes Eunice pose as his hostage to prevent them from arresting her as an accomplice.Jodie's possible suicide attempt on the Triborough bridge is thwarted by an attractive,lonely girl named Alice(Randee Heller),whose own attempt at killing herself fails to progress beyond an aborted suicide note.She reveals herself to be gay,being disowned by her father,who learned they were both dating his secretary(who has now walked out on her),and a sympathetic Jodie refuses to leave her alone and depressed.Mary leaves a note for Burt,saying only that she's left him,and Corinne suddenly goes into labor after a mere six weeks of pregnancy,throwing Benson into a panic("where's the car?")
