    Here's how the synopsis goes: First off, Julius gets some tickets to see "Dreamgirls" from Risky, followed by flashbacks of Rochelle and Julius at the Ali-Frazier fight at Madison Square Garden and a Patti LaBelle concert at Lincoln Center. The school is having a field trip to Washington, D.C. and the entire class has to sell cookies to raise money for the school field trip. Meanwhile, Chris gets tips from the thugs in Bed-Stuy on how to raise the most money from selling cookies for the cookie-selling competition, only to be thrown in jail. When Tonya and Drew catch chickenpox, Rochelle goes to "Dreamgirls" alone and Julius has to take care of them.moreless

    This is a fantastic episode, with the whole storyline of bootleg cookies being sold quicker than legitimate ones being a hilarious concept, aswell as the chicken pox putting a rift between Rochelle and Julius on their anniversary.



    While I saw Chris getting pox just before the trip happening from the beginning, it was funny nonetheless, as was Risky's history of giving away terrible seats.



    The cops' sweet tooths were a great ending to the cookie plot as it brings in the cliche and the whole episode is terrific, with so many funny moments, ranging from someone stealing a box of cookies to Rochelle's singing.moreless

    Every body hates chris is very very very x1000 fun. I\'ll go on with Chris~~~!!!!

    Chris, so Cute !! I\'m a great fan of Chris rock, since when he tread the boards of \"bad company\". I think that \"Everybody hates Chris\" is Best drama, Next to \"Friends\". And..I will.. Through \"Everybody hates Chris\", studing English.
