Yes, it's her nickname. She introduced herself to Pete in the pilot as Susie.
Is Screwsie the sister's real name? It's got to be a nickname -- right?
I laughed more during these two episodes than the first two. It's a fun show, and the cast works well with each other. I'll be sorry when the six episodes are done.

Are you thinking of "It Had To Be You" with Faye Dunaway and the late, great Robert Urich?
Wow, I never saw that, but that does sound similar. I actually have no details other than a feeling I've seen it before. Like I said, I could just be confusing it with something else, I just thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone else had the same feeling.

And I'm sorry the show isn't going to last, because I like the way Pete actually tends to lose more than he wins, because he is more jerk than he is charming and deserves it. It's rare you get a show that doesn't reward the continuous immature behavior of the male lead. Hell, almost the entire romantic comedy genre is based on the goofball getting the girl. I'd like to think that had the show continued they would have shown him having to be a better guy to make any headway.

Awesome, NBC. Must be frustrating as hell for the writers and cast...

Yeah, poor Jessie! I'm sorry to see this go, it was a better show than a lot of other sitcoms out there, despite the predictability of the main non-couple couple's plot. Ah, well! So it goes.
Ah man, what a cruel way to end it.

As much as I hate to see this show go with it's quick humor and good chemistry at least I have these good six episodes, which is six more than Are You There It's Me, Chelsea or Whitney has ever had.

Was totally surprised that Pete didn't overhear her talking about the sex dream with her sister.
Loved Ben as well. What a sweetheart. "I love you. It's just how I feel. You don't have to say it back."
NBC sucks. Is there ANYONE who can get in there and actually run a network?
