The Boys Club has a hard time with women in "The Messenger." Harvey becomes obsessed with the nude photos of Jordan Schaefer, and, lo and behold, she's a twin! But unlucky Harvey gets the plain, conservative twin, while Antwon gets the wild one, as Jennifer playfully says: "So are you going to spank me?"
And there's no sparks between the hot babe TV reporter Diana Carr and Nash either. In fact, Nash does just about everything he can to impede Diana's job: he tells her not to be appear on the news, even though she is, in fact, an eyewitness to five people getting killed; Nash literally pulls the plug on her TV camera; and finally Nash convinces her to move her broadcast to another studio. Diana icily orders Nash "You do your job and I will do mine." Underneath all this acting, you get the feeling this is celebrity Don Johnson ordering the media around. After finally trapping the killer, Nash puts in the final blow: "You've had your 15 minutes of fame."
And Joe's having a hard time with his woman too. Inger's Volvo is stolen by a pretty young thing who flirts with Joe. And Inger, who just happens to spot the Volvo in the parking lot of the Motel Capri (hey, Nash World is a lot smaller than the real San Francisco, OK?), thinks Joe is having an affair. Only after a DIRTY HARRY shoot-out does Inger believe Joe. That's after the Volvo is ventilated like Swiss cheese and flambéed.
So Antwon explains why women are interested in certain types of creepy men: "A small subset of chicks are looking for something different, something dangerous...[They're interested in] a guy who holds back." And the ultimate pearl of wisdom: "You got to dangle the mystery." After all the extreme shenanigans men go to like Diana Carr's deranged fan who licks the TV screen when she is on, and wears her underwear, the real mystery is why women put up with men at all.
