2 Broke Girls: A New Job?

It's back to the drawing board for the girls, but this time it's Max who wants to fight for their cupcake dream. I was impressed by that, though I was a bit surprised that Caroline didn't come up with a job better than a diner waitress as soon as she gave up on the cupcakes. What shocked me the most, however, is that Max doesn't let Caroline quit - she refuses to allow Caroline a different life, wanting her help with the cupcakes at all costs, even if they're just back to selling a dozen a day at the bakery. I admire Max's dedication... I don't know if I could have a shoppe and then be content to return to baking just a single batch each day. Of course, having Sophie around to pick up a couple here and there definitely helps!

2 Broke Girls "And the Temporary Distraction" (S02E19): Caroline is still upset about how things ended at the cupcake shoppe so she refuses to help Max with the small batches she prepares to sell at the diner each shift. The girls decide to temp for more money, but at the office, Caroline works hard while Max surfs the internet. [anybody surprised?] Caroline is soon told that she should apply for an executive position, which she gets. [seriously??]

Caroline gets Max a full-time position as her assistant, but she wants to stick with her cupcake dream. [how are they the only ones in the office??] The girls argue about their futures, and Max takes charge by complaining to HR that Caroline sexually harassed her. [the photocopies were a great touch!] That's the end of Caroline's job. [her boss has been through four sexual harassment suits but Caroline's isn't even fully investigated before she's fired?] Back to the diner and cupcakes!

Cupcakery Savings Total: $5.00. [I guess they sold that one to Sophie for four bucks.]
