    2 Broke Girls: Best Friends Forever (Again)

    For an episode that seemed to dwell so much on the idea of emotional companions, I just wasn’t feeling it.

    • 1.20 "And the Drug Money"

      My least favorite episode. Not bad, but not really doing any magic to me. Not many LOL moments, not the best writing although I loved those "Law & Order" comments. Too bad Sophie was not in it. I got used to her after having her in 5 straight episodes. Oleg had like 2 predictable lines, the other supporting characters did not have much to do either. At least Max was funny. 6.5/10moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Leo: We take a short recess, so she can speak, then resume the deposition on me, because her father is an amazing guy, and that's what they would do on Law & Order!

      • Max: She would want you to know who her father really is! He use to make her snow toast, and in her words, was funny, smart, and a generous lover!
        Caroline: (mumbling because of a swollen tongue) Generous and loving!

      • Caroline: (words mumbled because of her swelled tongue.) You said you never had any side effects.
        Max: Oh please, I died once, I just didn't wanna scare you.

      • Leo: This is a legal preceding, and that's a highly usual request.
        Caroline: But not improbable, we Googled it.
        Max: Yea, she's aloud to have an emotional companion, as long as both attorney's agree.
        Leo: Well, I graduated top of my class at Harvard, but since you Googled it, I'll try to make that happen!

      • Toby: (still reading the side effects) And A.L.
        Max: Ewe, anal leakage.

      • Toby: OK, possible side effects may occur over the next 24 to 48 hours. They are, drumroll please: headaches, vomiting, flatulence, tongue swelling, suicidal thoughts.
        Caroline: I'm having some right now.
        Toby: I.T.W.
        Max: Inability to walk.
        Caroline: I hope I get that, cuz that's the only thing that's gonna keep me here.
        Toby: and R.U.
        Max: Relentless urination.
        Toby: Fatigue, seizures, camel toe. (Caroline shocked) I'm kidding that's my joke.
        Max: (laughing) That's his joke.
        Caroline: Good, cuz I was out the door.

      • Caroline: Hey, wanna be our roommate?
        Sedate Girl: Oh, I just said yes to a self mutilator, but I can get out of it, she probably loves rejection.

      • Caroline: You know I always thought we'd have to use the cupcake money to get us out of a legal problem, I just thought it'd be for you!
        Max: Me too!

      • Leo: My standard rate is 1100 an hour.
        Caroline: You know I don't have that kind of money, last week I gave myself a bikini wax with duct tape I stole from the diner!

      • Max: Anything I can do to help? I'm pretty courtroom savvy. I mean, I haven't seen every episode of Law & Order, just like 400 of them! For instance, the judge's hammer, not called a hammer.

      • Max: I've never known a lawyer who wasn't court appointed for me. Oh, except for the ones on Law & Order. Have you ever been on that show?
        Leo: No, I'm a real lawyer.
        Max: You look like someone who was on that show. Are you sure you didn't represent the woman who ate her child?
        Leo: I've never represented anyone who eat their child... on Law & Order.

      • Max: Hi, so what the hell is this?
        Dog Lady: Excuse me? I don't understand.
        Max: Dogs aren't aloud to be in the diner.
        Dog Lady: Oh, he's legally aloud to be here, he's my registered emotional companion.
        Max: You mean, you don't have a boyfriend?
        Dog Lady: No, I suffer from anxiety.
        Max: You mean, you don't wanna eat alone?
        Dog Lady: No, I have a note from a doctor.
        Max: You mean, you have a printer and the internet. Admit it and the dog can stay!
        Dog Lady: It's really hard meeting guys!
