  • Episode Description
  • Jody, a peppy, popular former student of Joan's who isn't even in her class this year, begs Joan to write a college recommendation for her, as she wants to get into North Western -- which just so happens to be Joan's Alma Mater. Joan agrees, but when the time comes to write it, she procrastinates, realizing that Jody rubs her the wrong way. Alice helps her see that the reason she doesn't like Jody is because she's the kind of girl Joan never was in high school. Of course, Joan never was the kind of girl who would write her own college recommendation and give it to her teacher hoping she'll claim ownership of it. Though she refuses to show it around the girl, Joan is furious with Jody, until she reads the earnest recommendation she wrote, documenting how she's made most of her friends only by joining lots of clubs. Meanwhile, Steinie answers a trivia contest question correctly and wins two minutes in a bank vault cash grab, but his excitement turns to resentment when Jake jinxes him. And Jake is forced to take an anger workshop class as part of his job requirement.moreless
