  • A winning lottery ticket is mistakenly lost and the girls go to great lengths to get it back.

    2.0
    One of the worst episodes in the series. Not funny and the most unbelievable of all. This episode, plus the awful Sophia's Wedding that precede it were a real low point.
    The girls have a winning lottery ticket worth $10,000 dollars. To keep it safe they put it in the pocket of a leather coat. Sophia accidentally gives the coat away. From there on in it is downhill. First Michael Jackson, of all people, buys the coat and wears it. Next the coat is auctioned off for the homeless. The worst part comes next when the girls pretend to be homeless to get into the shelter to try and get the coat. Why wouldn't the priest know that they weren't homeless? Plus the scenes where each of them talks to someone in the shelter is so preachy, it really is insulting. Joking about homeless people and then saying how lucky they are that they are not homeless, really makes this one of the worst episodes of the series.
