2 Broke Girls: Getting Stood Up

Who rates themselves by letters? It's numbers, guys. Pass/Fail may have worked in college, but this is real life. Speaking of which, this was not the greatest episode because it was stretching what happens in "real life." The diner emptying out because there's an opossum in the men's restroom? How many opossums are there in Brooklyn?? And although Caroline may never have been stood up, surely she must have had a friend that was at some point... the girl having no idea whatsoever of how that works was implausible. Of course, she probably never had anyone "have her back" like Sophie - that girl is serious business! Add in some Oleg (and some Luis to fawn over Oleg), and you're just about back to a good episode, not a randomly bad one like this where nothing happens except an endless barrage of current jokes. It's almost like viewers were stood up by the show!

2 Broke Girls "And the 'It' Hole" (S03E08): Caroline hits it off with Mark, a surfer, and he invites her out to dinner at a trendy restaurant. [haha, Max uses Grindr to drum up some gay business, but learns it doesn't always work. and Tindr?] When he's 20 minutes late picking her up, Sophie and Max have to break the news that Caroline has been stood up. [haha, He's Just Not That Into You. that was so almost 10 years ago!] Max goes with Caroline to use the reservation anyway, and when there's terrible service, Max gets up to start serving them and a neighboring table. [ha!] Nothing else really happens except plenty of jokes about the workers and the ambiance of the place.

Cupcakery Savings Total: $2,420.00. [up $140 from last episode. I'm assuming it's a smaller amount because the girls went out to eat.]
