    In a weird turn of events, Jack finally managed to find a way to be nice to Gloria. I must admit, it was a real shocker. Why would he really do it? I guess learning that Gloria lost her job and all of her money really brings out the charitable part of a person's soul. That should raise conflict in the house again, right? I like Gloria without any money. Working at the coffee house would have been a great job for her. She was poor before, so why would she not be again? I don't know if the writers plan to keep Gloria in that state, but I sure would like to see it. Lauren and Michael didn't do anything for themselves in this episode, yet again. Why would they spend the day home discussing about Gloria? That's just weird. But I loved the punch Michael gave Jeffrey at the end. He deserved it, although it's obvious he still loves Gloria.



    I'm also glad Paul finally told David he's investigating him. David looks more nervous in every episode. I can't wait to see him tumble already. A clueless Nikki learned about Jill firing Gloria and that started yet another fight, in which Katherine decided to side with Nikki. A surprise? No. At least Jill and Kay are fighting again.



    I love the humor that the writers throw in every once in a while. It's good for the soul. And I really liked the episode, even though it opened with Lily and Cane on the couch together. When will the writers finally learn? When Devon and Chloe returned, that's when it started to be more interesting. I would like to see them as a couple. Meanwhile, Chloe did an amazing thing today. So I guess her career isn't the only thing she cares about.moreless

    • Michael (To Jeffrey): What you did to my mother... you are callous, self-involved. I'd call you scum, but that would be an insult to scum, wouldn't it?

    • Jack (sees Gloria working while entering Crimson Lights): Gee, nobody told me it was bring your mother to work day.

    • Lauren: You're concerned about your mother?
      Michael: Conflicted. She has no one but herself to blame. On the other hand, in her own bizarre, twisted, peculiar way, she was just trying to do the right thing. I warned her about him.
      Lauren: Well, I mean, there is a silver lining. Some of her money is gonna go to charity.
      Michael: Whether she likes it or not. And apparently we will be running a private charity from our couch without any of the tax benefits.

    • Jeff: Gloria did something good.
      Jack: Wait a minute, are we talking about the same person here?
