  • Strict Allowance

    Dave puts the kids on a strict allowance, since they're always asking him for money. Vicky supports him on this... that is, until she, too, is put on a budget and is unable to buy the Prada boots she's always wanted. But Dave then turns hypocritical when he buys a stolen Rolex from Jeff who bought it from his cousin. Meanwhile, after spending all his allowance money on the first day at Medieval Times, Larry asks Mike to loan him some money which gets him in more trouble. And, in order to earn some extra money, Hillary starts an escort service for the nerdy boys at school.

    This season has certainly improved from the last season a lot and this episode had some great lines and a strong storyline. Very, very good.
  • are you telling me this is a lower middle upper middle class problem?

    From the beginning of this episode, Dave enforces a tight budget on his whole family. It was amusing to see where this storyline would take the cast. Hillary becomes a pimp and sends out all her female friends to these social gatherings as dates for boys who aint getting any. Mike decides to lend some of his money to Larry in exchange for interest and collateral, which Larry could not pay in time. Larry loses his money the quickest after buying some sort of item from a game he and his friends were playing. Dave breaks the budget himself when he asks his friend to buy a rolex from the mafia, and when Vicky finds out, she wants a pair of Prada, or was it Gucci boots. Some nice lines of comedy that caused an abrupt chuckle a few times during the show.
