This episode was a big improvement over The Reality Check, but I liked the next two episodes even better. My favorite quotes (which probably aren’t as funny out of context).
Quick recap: Max and Caroline’s stove is from hell. The pilot light has to be manually lit with a match…from a distance. I lived in a house with a stove that required manual lighting of the burners and oven. I couldn’t reach the oven pilot, but I weenied out of actually lighting a burner until I was at least 16 or 17 and my little brother wanted some macaroni one day when there was no one else to light it. I did it and made him his snack.
Anyway, Caroline offers to sell one of her TAT rings to buy Max a new stove. The gold shops didn’t work out and neither did returning it to the jewelry store, so the girls decide to run a pop-up sale in the ladies’ bathroom at the jewelry store. Caroline bales on Max when some friends come in. This hurts Max’s feelings, so Caroline sells all her TAT rings to a gold shop and buys Max the Cadillac of stoves.
In the restaurant: Hans and Oleg have a back and forth that is never really resolved over Hans saying Oleg should wear shirts with sleeves and deodorant.
All and all, this episode was mildly funny and at least had some discussion about the cupcake business in it.
My favorite one-liners this week:
Max on scorching off her eyebrows: I had to draw them on with markers…only Mexican girls would talk to me.
Max when Caroline offers to sell her TAT rings to buy a new stove: I don’t want you sacrificing your precious rings, Frodo.
Max to the mean guy at the jewelry store: Look, Jeffrey, I know we just met but there is no way you’re a top.
Max to the air in general while setting up a pop-up sale in the women’s bathroom at the jewel store: Who shops and plops?
