Episode Summary

EDIT
Jaleesa and Denise get a new roommate, talkative transfer student Maggie Lauten. Denise learns that the check for her dorm fees has bounced. To make matters worse, she had also covered Jaleesa's fees to repay her for an earlier favor. Denise and Jaleesa face eviction unless they can come up with 200 dollars by the next day. Denise cannot bring herself to ask her parents for help, as she is tired of being bailed out. When the dean of students realizes that Denise sincerely wants to take responsibility for her actions, he helps her get a cafeteria job with an advance on her salary. Jaleesa takes delight in the fact that she is now Denise's boss.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In the opening scene, when Denise is talking to Stevie, there's a gold and white sofa in the lobby and a bulletin board on the wall near the stairs. In a later scene, when Denise is talking to Maggie in the lobby, there is now a green sofa and a picture on the wall near the stairs. The gold sofa and bulletin board return for the next episode, Porky de Bergerac.

      • Although Denise is given a job in the cafeteria with Jaleesa, we never see Denise working in any other episodes. Since everyone eats at the Pit instead of the cafeteria, Jaleesa eventually works in the library.
