That's Hebrew for 'When do you get off?'

Entourage Ep. 18

First of all, Rhapsody's 8 for 8 in the soundtrack offering today. And the final song is by The Doors ("Love Street,") which is a first for television, I believe.

James Cameron and E hear (via boom set mics) Vince's confession to Mandy that he's not over her, and Cameron tells E this better not be a problem. E confronts Vince on the matter and Vince is denial that there are any problems. Ari's daughter Sarah is having her Bat Mitzvah, so the boys are getting fitted for new suits (Turtle in a suit? His idea of formal is the Knicks home white jersey.) E and Vince run into Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui,) the daughter of Ari's boss, and Vince recognizes that E likes her and decides to make a play for her as well to show E he's not that into Mandy (and more to spite his obvious interest in her.)

Ari's boss (partner) Terrance (Malcolm McDowell) shows up at his house to say he wants a sit down with Vince and Ari interprets this as poaching (especially when the gift he leaves for Sarah's Mitzvah is for $50G.) Apparently he already stole Keaunu Reeves (Ari "remember what he said about Bill & Ted's? I'll take Reeves and you take the 'other guy'?") so it's not just paranoia. Speaking of paranoia, Turtle and Drama smoke a lot of weed and hold off on food for the big feast to come. The gang skips temple (Turtle: "I thought it was only for Jews") and shows up for the Bat Mitzvah and make their way through the receieving line (Ari to Turtle: "Smoke more weed, Turtle. No seriously, smoke more weed.") Drama & Turtle get stuck at the old folks table and sit and hungrily await their expected feast. Sloan's there and introduces her father to Vince prompting Ari to interrupt them by having Vince cut the Challah Turtle, ravenous now, eyes the Challa and dreams of a non-kosher feast: "wouldn't that make a great hoagie? some provolone, prosciutto..." Ari skips the candle-lighting and has DJ Quik kick the tunes. Vince dances w/ Sloan (since E doesn't dance) and Ari sees this and flips again ("You see that? Terrance is pimping his daughter... Sarah, come here and go ask your starcrush Vinnie to dance!") When the food starts to come Turtle and Drama are left with Kosher Vegetarian plates while the plates of Brisket are being devoured by the dentures around them. Turtle and Drama approach the kitchen looking for some meat ("Shalom Aleichem" says Drama to the waitress [Charlotte Salt,] "that's Hebrew for 'when do you get off?'") After Turtle slips her some weed, she directs them to the kids section out back, with it's own hot dog stand.

Ari finally confronts Terrence, telling him to lay off his Vinnie, setting up a future confrontation for sure. Sloan and Vince chat about Mandy and Vince plays up E for Sloan who goes back and gets E to finally slowdance. We get a back view Turtle and Drama enjoying their 'kids meal' sitting next to a couple kids, who from the back look just like E and Vince (some subtle symbolism on little Turtle and Drama have grown up?) when one of the kids asks for a light to smoke his joint, Drama gives him a hypocritical and laughable lecture. Vince gets a call and goes outside to see Mandy Moore pull up and say that she and her fiance are taking some time off. Vince jumps in the kryptonite-laden passenger seat and they take off into the Aquaman-doomed sunset.
