    Wow! Beautifully worded! Bravo! I'm speechless (and that just doesn't happen.

    I finally beat you to the recap once, eh, berries?

    Does anyone know the status of these two bimbos now? I hope they didn't jet off to a hot climate, cuz dude will surely get his makeup washed off. WHAT A MISERABLE EXCUSE FOR ENTERTAINMENT. Stacey is so WHINY and the way she moves that mouth.....she could've been a freakin' horse. Never again will I succumb to such a shallow and FAKE reality series.

    Great recap, Lucy!! I was laughing at my desk and was getting weird looks. By the way, I ran into Bubba and he was crying a river and was wondering if you were ever going to call him!!

    This show has been so maudlin I could retch for most of the episodes. But, this last one was soooooo bad I had to fast forward through most of it just to avoid gagging every few seconds. Apparently, most of us feel the same way. Enough of "Will you marry my dad/mom/daughter/son, cousin, neice, aunt, uncle etc. etc."

    Thanks for the recap, Lucy!! So many funny jokes (and they don't write themselves...pat yourself on the back...you have Talent!!). And thanks for sticking this out to the end with the rest of us. I was painful. I'm glad you shared the pain (hey, that came out way wrong well, ya know what I mean )

    The guy's on a reality TV show and his daughters are picking a new wife for him, how much more embarrassing do you want it to get?

    I don't think that's fair, first off the show is making Marty look like a complete dolt too and second, the women are on the show making themselves look like fools. If you want to blame someone for the format of the show, blame the (mostly female) audience and their desire for a romantic happy ending (i.e. their "Cinderella Complex").

    These ladies are desperate (for their 15 minutes of fame) and Marty is a sap, you can't blame NBC for that.

    Oh yah, I forgot to mention. Great job Lucy.
    I would have said something sooner but I don't read the recaps before I've done my screen caps.

    Trust me, this whole exchange played out better on TV. It’s kind of hard to reproduce in writing.

    Stacy jumps in first – wisely, you always want to get your side in first – to confide that Suzanne questioned her sincerity.

    a resounding “No, run away from this she-devil before she flays you alive”.

    It would be like saying I’m so obviously going to hell that a multitude of sects have picked up on it.

    When a reality show contestant says they’re in love with two people, trust me – one of them is in the mirror.

    Pick a theme and stick with it. Personally, I want to see the hate.

    So, Suzanne’s idea of home is a shallow, plastic world in which the rugs are made from man-made materials?

    Tsk, tsk, Stacy. Someone call the Fab Five.

    I desperately wanted to go find a roadhouse where I could drink beer, shoot pool, smoke cheap cigarettes

    On second thought, go on.

    I don’t think he’s into crying jags and group hugs, though.
    Fantastico!! Another fabulous job, Lucy Liu, and I you're a total pro at the required sarcastic *zing* in these dating shows. I love it! Nay..I need it! I have always loved it, and I will continue to follow you from show to show.
