    2 Broke Girls: If It’s Broken, Fix It

    And the Big Buttercream Breakthrough” managed to break through a relatively dreary patch of 2 Broke Girls episodes to redeem the show a bit in my eyes.

  • Episode Summary

    Max's job babysitting maybe in jeopardy if the cupcakes they're making for Peach's socialite friend aren't perfect.

    Who was the Episode MVP ?

    • 1.22 ''And the Buttercream Breakthrough''

      Better than the last 3 or 4 episodes that let me down in the last month or so. I loved Max's one liners and Caroline was hilarious in the subway scenes, when she was afraid to jump over that little hole :D lmao. I am so sorry they're doing this to Sophie and Oleg = making them all about sex and Haan must be the one having snarky comments about it / even being present. Mr. King knows better. This show used to be better plotwise and jokewise in the beginning. Now it's becoming a parody of it's former self and it's not even the season 1 finale. Some things get old very quickly. 8,0/10moreless

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Peach: That's why I'm here. Max come back, I need you to watch the twins tomorrow, and then everyday.
        Max: Peach, I don't think I can work for you tomorrow, or any other day. We have to focus on our business.
        Caroline: Max, are you sure your comfortable with this?
        Max: No, I'm not comfortable, but that's the point right? You gotta take a step.
        Peach: Oh, then how about just another year, by then the twins will be old enough to take care of themselves.
        Max: Nope, but I promise I'll come by and say 'Hi' to the twins whenever I can.
        Peach: Oh Max, I'll never find someone as wonderful as you who speaks English.

      • Peach: I'm sorry for pretending to fire you in front of Constance.
        Max: Pretended? That felt pretty real.
        Peach: Yea, I'm good! My fake orgasms are so real, even I believe them!

      • Max: Peach, what are you doing here? Who's with the twins?
        Peach: They're in the car. Don't worry, I rolled up the windows and locked the doors, so they're safe.

      • Peach: (to Earl as she enters the diner) I'm looking for Max Black, oh, sorry maybe it's African-American.
        Earl: You think her name is Max African-American?

      • Caroline: Oleg, do you really love Sophie?
        Oleg: Yes, I do, and one day I will kiss her. Her lips will be mine!
        Max: Wait, you've never kissed her?
        Oleg: Not on the lips of her face, but that day will come! (leave)
        Max: Man, I can't believe I'm saying this, but that was pretty freakin' romantic!

      • Sohie: Oh, it is not love! (begin to leave) (stop) It was dirty, disgusting sex!
        Han: Yes, it was!

      • (Caroline walks into the freezer and screams as Oleg and Sophie walk out)
        Sophie: What? I had to prove the sex was not that good.
        Caroline: Oleg, on the food.
        Oleg: Don't say it like that. That ham was already glazed before we got there. (awkward pause)
        Max: So I'm guessing your back together.
        Sophie: Oh no, no the sex was not that good.
        Oleg: Oh, it was that good. (Han walks out of the freezer holding the mayo)
        Han: I went to get mayo… and it all happened so fast.

      • Oleg: Hello, Sophie.
        Sophie: Hello, Oleg.
        Oleg: So, do you miss the sex?
        Caroline: Oh! You know what, we should go.
        Sophie: No, we are having conversation here. And besides, the sex was not that good.
        Oleg: Oh, it was that good.
        Sophie: It wasn't that good.
        Caroline: Please, I beg you. Let us go.
        Max: You can go; I'm kind of into it. It's like a dirty Downton Abbey.
        Sophie: So why are you still standing there, giving me sad cow eyes in that brown velour?
        Oleg: Because it's a good look on me. And because I'm waiting for you to admit, that you came here because you missed the sex.
        Sophie: I miss summers in Minsk. I miss smoking in hospitals. (pause) But I don't miss the sex.
        Oleg: Fine then. What would you like to eat?
        Sophie: I'll have my usual sausage.
        Oleg: Okay. Ding. It's ready.
