  • Sophia leaves to buy a nectarine, while the others stay at home and discuss how uneventful Sophia's life is. Little do they know, Sophia's routine involves much more than buying a nectarine.

    I love this episode. The whole time everyone else is sitting at home doing nothing and discussing how Sophia needs to be more productive, Sophia is out buying fruit, volunteering at a hospital, and raising money for the nursing home. The girls have no idea about all the work she's doing, and Sophia keeps it that way. She returns home to say that she does the same thing she does every day, buy a nectarine. All the girls accomplished was television watching and trying fruit cocktail on a bagel, yet they worry about Sophia's uneventful life. Very cleverly written episode.
