November 13, 2006: Woman 'N Tuition Season 2, Episode 8

I absolutely love the fact that Ritchie, Matthew, Christine and the cat all walked into glass doors in tonight's episode. I also loved Barb's comment: "What, were you all raised by birds?" I never thought walking into glass doors could be a genetic thing, but that's what it seemed like. I have to say that Christine kind of annoyed me. I can understand being strapped for cash, but making Richard cancel his vacation when she just bought a cat? I think Richard was right in taking back his check. Christine buys a cat and then tries to convince him that she's stretched for money. Richard has paid his share of the tuition for the last three months, so I can understand the frustration when Christine assumed he would offer up the check to help his son. Her version of their "divorce" agreement? "Whenever one of us needs something, he gives it to me." It's time they separated "teams." Christine needs to rely less on Richard. I loved the comment Christine made on her financial struggles: "I can barely cover my nut as it is." I've never heard that expression before, but I'm definitely going to try to use it more. And how hilarious was the video that Matthew made when he was younger? He was so goofy-looking as a kid and he emphatically talked to the videotape, to himself in the future: "Change starts with me. Do awesome. Get into med school. Probably Harvard. I'm going to travel around curing people while my band Power Grid isn't touring. Say no to drugs." The best part was Matthew taking the drink of milk somewhere in the middle of his emphatic speech to himself. Then Matthew's reaction to his younger self: "Why didn't I say no to drugs?" It did get him to want to go to med school, which meant that Christine had to "add a nanny to her nut." And who knew that New Christine was so adventurous in the bedroom? New Christine: "I feel like we can go a lot further if it's just the two us." Richard: "Really? I feel like I've covered everything. What's left? Killing me?" It was really surprising to hear about that side of New Christine. I'm glad that Barb told Christine she wanted to be partners with her. She wanted to be partners at the gym because she found it fulfilling to work at the gym. Barb: "I filled the tampon machine. I made a difference." It's hilarious that she found filling the tampon machine so fulfilling. And now Christine and Barb can "cover each other's nuts." It's perfect show less
