Dr. Shirley suggests that a lack of communication is the
underlining problem. That may very well be, but even the idiot who is me can
read this body language.
Jackie’s big enough to admit, "Hell, no, we’re not
communicators" and "Briana and I suck," and theorizes it’s because
Briana communicates like a woman and she communicates more like a man.

Greg Plitt runs into a hot blonde as he arrives for work. They come face to face
by the front door. That’s not just any hot blonde, that’s Erika, sporting a new

Greg just happens to be carrying a copy of their magazine
