I think I'll probably focus on Mark and Roxanne when I write. Mark's my favorite character and I sometimes wonder if others even like him. He's so funny.
So this episode revolved around Alex's fears that Whitney was too close to a guy at work.
They were doing things after work together, he was calling her on the phone, etc. He called her from the drug store and Mark and Alex were staring at her after she got off the phone.
Mark, "You don't think about a girl at the drug store unless you're sleeping with her or you have an unfortunate souvenir from sleeping with her."
And please note, Mark looked like a little boy in that first scene. I have no idea if it was the hair or what but he made a cute little boy.
He told Whitney that the guy wanted to go north, south, then north again, "East and West, East and West" -- he was doing his head moves during all this and the repeat east and west was supposed to be him between a woman's breasts. It was a funny bit of physical comedy.
What makes Mark such a great character is that despite being so thick-headed, he honestly believes he's highly intelligent.
Whitney was telling Roxanne not to take him seriously because he believes that women can't be lactose intolerant.
He tilts his head, looks at her like she's crazy, and asks, "What, you can dish it out but you can't take it?"
It was hilarious. The whole episode was. I hope Whitney Cummings gets nominated for an Emmy as a writer and an actress. She is very talented.
