    Wow. This episode was pretty cool. The beginning was a little weird with Sophia's weird way of speaking. "A storm's a comin'!" Haha! Dorothy is being selfish being happy about her sister's poverty. The lighthouse campaign is a pretty unique storyline. They don't pay attention to Rose whatsoever! Haha! Blanche didn't even see her come in! I kind of hated Dorothy in this episode because she was being selfish... The buses comment was hilarious, though! It was funny when Gloria first enters, and then Stan comes with the monkey. He's a traffic cone! Rose can only hold the monkey if her hands are clean! Haha, great episode!moreless
  • this episode is when gloria comes to visit and brings a hurricane with her. Also in this episode Dorothy and Stan have their final therapist session together.

    i love the very beginning of this episode because Sophia ( i just love her) comes in with empty sandbags and a shovel and she is wearing her rain gear and says "There's a hurricane a comin!" Then when Dorothy finds out that Gloria is coming and that she is out of money and she is ready to gloat but she cant because she wants to get it straight from the horse's mouth. But then later at the therapist's office Stan offers up a sentimental good-bye to Dorothy and Dorothy just says "Stan, Ciao!" and walks out. that right there was classic. i also like the second part as well.moreless

      Blanche: If you wear a negligee, they think you want to sleep with them.
      Dorothy: Why aren't you arrested more?
