Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • And Martha Stewart Have a Ball, Parts 1 & 2

    This was an amazing episode of 2 Broke Girls, the best in my opinion, I could not have imagined a better way for the season to end.

    First off we learned a lot about the characters in this episode: What happened to Johnny, That Caroline is the most hated person in NY, Han use to be a jockey, how much Oleg cares about Sophie, and how much Earl cares about Caroline and Max. It also finally mentioned how much Caroline talks about the cupcake business.

    It was a very funny episode, that was well written, well thought out and well acted. It left my heart warm, and my mind curious of where these 2 broke gals will be in 4 months when season 2 starts!moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Max: (reading Caroline's hate mail) If I ever see you on the street I will (changing what the letter says) shake your hand, and wish you well as you have been through so very much.
      Caroline: That is not what that says.
      Max: It might be, it's hard to read actual words as they are written in blood.

    • Max: (to the man dressed in 1800s style clothes and using a typewriter) Wow, bummer dude! You have a time machine and somehow got programmed to this crap diner?
      Steam Punk Guy: I have to admit, I am quite taken with Steam Punk.
      Max: Oh, Steam Punk, I remember that trend. It happened for like 10 seconds back in two thousand and are you kidding me!? Dude, seriously? You are sitting in a public place tap, tap, tapping on an oldie typewriter? What, are you in the league of extraordinarily pretentious gentlemen?
      Steam Punk Guy: Aren't you being a little aggressive?
      Max: Yup! That's how people are here in the present, where we live. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to go back in time too. Maybe stop 9/11 or that creep who had sex on my shoe, but I can't.
      Steam Punk Guy: Present? Where's that uniform from? Like, 1998?
      Max: Oh, stop or I'm gonna have to shoot you with the Smith and Wesson I'm currently packing in my bloomers.

    • Max: Look, signed JPeg, that's his tag. Yo, what's the deal with this art.
      Brody: It's a street artist, everyone is getting really into him now.
      Max: Oh yea? He was trying to get into me a few months ago.
      Caroline: It was more emotional than that. He cheated on his girlfriend with her, and then blow her off. It was really hard for us.
      Max: And you thought me slapping my ass in front of him was inappropriate!?

    • Max: The word party at a party planners? Little obvious. Like me having art that says 'Will die alone.'

    • Caroline: Some day we'll have articles about us. You know pictures of you and me standing outside our country home...
      Max: Hold on, we're rich, and still living together?

    • Sophie: No! Every year I give money to charity, and I love you two girls way more than the babies with the broken smiles.

    • Caroline: Maybe we should find something cheaper at one of those consignment stores.
      Sophie: Consignment stores! What are we, Gypsies?

    • Caroline: As much as my shoes love being back in their place of birth...
      Max: Oh, your shoes were born here? Mine were born in China, but I adopted them at Payless.
