Reaper Recap: "The Sweet Science"

at .

Last night was the third episode of the sophomore season of Reaper and it definitely maintained the quality we've seen so far in the season.  Going back to the roots of the first season, the episode mostly focused on the lost soul, a boxer who disagraced himself when he threw a fight while alive.

In addition to Sam and Sock taking on one of the most fleshed out lost souls of the show's history, Ben introduced the gang to his demond girlfriend, Nina (Jenny Wade).  Andi, meanwhile, got promoted to Ted's old position of manager and had to deal with Sock's fictional employee, Less Nessman.

All in all, it was a hilarious episode that actually helped advance the characters a little.  You can cach up on all the events in our "The Sweet Science" recap, but you'll probably have more fun enjoying the quotes from the episode.  Here's some of our favorites:

Ben: So I went to the mall alone...
Sock: Sure.
Ben: buy a couple of pairs of pants.
Sock: I'm sorry. You bought a couple of pairs of pants? Since when do you need more than one pair of pants? What are you, Jude Law? | permalink
Sock: Yeah, Nina, nice. I like a girl who eats like a trucker.
Nina: Thank you, Sock | permalink
Nina [about the geode she gave Ben]: It might have a little bit of hellfire left in it. But don't worry, it's perfectly safe. Just don't ever sleep next to it, it'll give you nightmares. And don't ever make wishes on it. And then just use a regular damp cloth to clean it | permalink
