Let's talk about the opening scene for a second. At first it appears to exist merely to remind the viewer that Caroline and Max are very different: Caroline wants to watch a documentary and Max wants to watch Honey Boo Boo. Yes, those are as different as night and day, we get the point. But, then, the series decides to liven things with a slapfight... a poorly choreographed series of high-fives to the face. I mean, their cheeks aren't even turning red, people! I thought the whole moment was ridiculous and unnecessary, which, sadly, the opening scenes for 2 Broke Girls often are. This episode was a bit different from most, what with Sophie getting most of the punchlines, Han seeming courageous, and a segment even taking place outside the diner or the girls' apartment. And, Caroline's pearls are much prettier in this smaller arrangement. But, you and I both know that is not enough to keep this show flowing... let's hope for something more intriguing coming up soon than this robbery and the recent estate sale and Martha Stewart reminder.
2 Broke Girls "And the Hold-Up" (S02E03): A guy comes in to rob the diner, and although Max and Earl go along with it, Caroline begins uncontrollably urinating and tries to use Max as a human shield while Han pulls a gun from his "mannypack." [which was funnier - Oleg slipping in a puddle of pee or Earl talking about having been on both sides of a robbery?]
