  • In this episode, Sophia's old flame visits her. Sophia wants to go back with Augie to Sicily, but Dorothy won't let her. They decide to compete in a bowling competition. However, Dorothy purposely blows it to let Sophia go. Rose & Blanche compete as well.

    This is another comical episode written by Barry Fanaro and Mort Nathan. It especially develops all four characters: Dorothy's sensitive side, Rose's competetive side, Blanche's pessimistic side, and Sophia's lovable side. It is very funny and allows that audience to identify with each of the characters. This is truly a pleasure to watch time and time again.
