2 Broke Girls: A New Pet

When the main characters of a comedy are in the title, they almost always get the main story in an episode. However, there is sometimes a fine line regarding what that episode can be about. In many installments, Max and Caroline mainly focus on their business, or at least something tangentially related to it. This episode is one of the few that completely ignores their cupcakes, focusing instead on their personal life. This generally wouldn't really bother me too much, but the idea that their till still increased by $300 is troubling... these numbers aren't a weekly or monthly update; there is cash news every episode, regardless of how much time has passed. So, when the girls only have a split-second of camera time in their shoppe/window storefront, it irks me that they still earned more money... and not just a few bucks they might have gotten by peddling their wares to the diner's customers. Am I nitpicking?

2 Broke Girls "And the Kitty Kitty Spank Spank" (S03E03): Max wants to let in a stray cat, but Caroline fears they'll become cat ladies. Plus, Sophie warns them that it could being bad juju because, in Poland, people who die outside are reincarnated as cats. [whoa. I don't think this is a real superstition/belief, though.] Well, Max allows it in anyway, even if Caroline tries to find it a rightful family.

A customer at the diner is interested, but when they bring the feline by, there are dozens of other kitties in the apartment, so Max refuses to leave "Kitty" there. Caroline wants to drop her at a shelter, but Max fears that she's not pretty enough to get adopted. [haha. I loved that she was trying to shield the cat from learning this.] They wind up planning to let it loose in Park Slope, but it won't budge, so Max puts it inside an open window. Of course, as soon as they return, they soon find out that someone lost the cat a week ago. Kitty is actually Jinxy, even if Sophie thinks it's her friend, Nancy. [ha!] The girls help the woman find the cat, but Max is upset that it might not be in a loving home, as there are no facebook pictures showing the cat was found. [stalking. love it.] Caroline gets Nancy back (Jinxy was her "slave name") for Max, and the cat takes to Chestnut right away. [awww!]

Cupcakery Savings Total: $1310.00 [up $300 from last episode.]
