  • Dorothy's ex Stan returns after being dumped by his new wife. In the meantime the girls plan a vacation together without Sophia.

    Dorothy spends time with Stan and actually feels sorry for him. Seems out of character for her. She still makes fun of him, but with all the anger she supposedly has, it just seems weird that she would sleep with him.
    This is the first time we see the writers stretch to make a story. Dorothy and Stan just happen to have property in Miami. A little too convenient. There is still some humor, like when Stan walks in wearing Dorothy's bathrobe. Rose and Blanche spit out their juice and it's great. Other than that, it's just an ok episode. Especially at this early stage the show should be concentrating on the girls.
