I didn't think that the title particularly fit this episode... partly because I didn't think Holly had the "A story" and partly because it's not like she hadn't been dating for a while... she's just unlucky in love, as always. It's really taking the attention off of Eden, who has gone from entering the second trimester to nearing delivery in just a few episodes. Of course, I've been complaining that Haskell doesn't get his own stories, but when he does, I'm not thrilled. I mean, it was quite the set-up just to get him to fool around with a maid for a whopping two days. Maybe this show is starting to fail and I'm just blind because I want it to be better than it is? Let's hope not... what do you think? Has the quality declined? Was it never there from the start?
The Exes "How Holly Got her Groove Back" (S02E08): Stuart is upset that the guys just pile dirty dishes in the sink, and Haskell and Phil figure that they can flatter Stuart into not being upset. [kinda disturbing, though it makes sense.] Stuart takes charge, hires a housekeeper, and states that everyone will be chipping in. [odd but still believable.] Phil is game but Haskell isn't thrilled - he works from home. [you know, playing virtual golf and having virtual drinks with an international client.] However, he changes his mind after they get into a fight and wind up making out. This means that the house didn't get picked up, prompting Stuart to fire her. [makes sense.] Haskell stands up for her, and she's allowed a second chance, complete with a detailed cleaning list from Stuart. Well, Haskell being in charge of making sure the cleaning gets done prompts Amelia to instigate some role-play, so she and Haskell go at it yet again. [so odd!] Well, Stuart had set up a nanny-cam in the apartment and shows the evidence to Phil, then they confront Haskell together, saying that they won't be paying for him to have a go-to girl. [eh. nothing too great, but at least it's a story for Haskell!]
