June wants a friend, to share a sidewalk cappuccino, but catty roommate Chloe rejects her, so she brings home three ditsy friends from her Pilates class, with whom Chloe just doesn't hit it off. Especially not with Stephanie. Then, an unidentified girl lies murdered in the park, June assumes it's Stephanie, and could it be Chloe's handiwork? Also, James does a community outreach gig helping out a downtown girl who is bullied by her peers, but his less than heroic efforts leave her stranded.

Did You Know?


Sean Bateman, the James Van Der Beek character in The Rules of Attraction (2002) had the habit of never leaving a friend's apartment empty-handed, always 'borrowing' something of value, with no intention to return it. Chloe, the Krysten Ritter character in this series, shows the same tendency. See more »


Stephanie: You got us pegged, don't you? You think that by acting tough and by rejecting us before we reject you, you can protect yourself. You're just scared that somebody's going to see the real you and find out you're not as interesting as you think you are.
Chloe: [retaliating] Well, you're not as skinny as you think you are.
Stephanie: Shouldn't you be dancing in a glass booth somewhere?
Chloe: No, your Mom took my shift.
Stephanie: [off-balanced] My Mom passed away two years ago.
Chloe: Well, you look like Donald Sutherland.

User Reviews

TV execs are notoriously narrow-minded fools clutching a copy of the Nielsen ratings
30 December 2016 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

This episode, third in the season, was kept back, and aired only as no. 10 in the next season... because for the fledgling TV show, it was a shaky prospect, what with no prominent guest stars in it.

No matter its content. It was just deemed not good enough at the critical time so early on in its run.

Excuse me, but James Van Der Beek by himself is a movie star and major DAWSON'S CREEK movie star. Not that that's the point I want to make. This episode is quite hilarious, and definitely goes to show that those TV execs never even bothered to really look at the merit of the content. There's some wonderfully naughty humor which I dared to post as Quotes here on this episode's page, and if it doesn't make you at least giggle, you are either (a) a super-prude or (b) dead.

By its structure, it is clearly an episode you had to see early on, as June is new in her 'relationship' with catty Chloe. Of course, what do the TV bosses care about viewers getting the true experience, as long as the commercials gets stuffed down people's throats?

Thank goodness for DVD! The pure unsullied medium.

As for the story-line:

Loved the Hotties from Pilates bit. And James Van Der Beek is totally hilarious in the parody of himself.

Krysten Ritter is absolutely fantastic as the title character. All the more intoxicating for me that I saw her as the screwy vampire in that movie with Alicia Silverstone, VAMPS.

I had some fears that the episodes wouldn't live up to the standard of the pilot. Not anymore.

Of course, the TV execs wrote it off after only two seasons. They always win. Which means YOU LOSE.
