Last night, April 27, a brand new episode of “2 Broke Girls” starring Kat Dennings as Max Black and Beth Behrs as Caroline Channing aired on CBS titled, “And The Look Of The Irish.” The following recap of this weeks episode of “2 Broke Girls” may contain spoilers. Max and Caroline’s cupcake business has been on the rocks lately because of their failed T-shirt business that went bust, so they’ve both taken on new jobs at The High, an upscale pastry shop. The show also stars Mathew Moy as Han Lee, Garret Morris as Earl, Jonathan Kite as Vanko “Oleg” Golishevsky and Jennifer Coolidge as Sophie Kaczynski. Sandra Bernhard once again guest stars this episode as Joedth, owner of The High. During the last few episodes Austin Falk has played Nash, Max’s love interest.
At the start of the episode, Max decides she doesn’t want to work with Nash at the diner. Caroline reminds her that no one who works at the diner can ever get out, like a fat guy in a smart car. Earl tells the girls, “It’s true. I came in here in 1962 for a cup of coffee. Someone asked me to break a dollar, and I never left.” Meanwhile, Oleg is having a bad day and he says, “I’m cranky because I’m not having sex right now.” He explains, “It’s some old Polish ritual. The bride and groom remain chaste for 30 days before the wedding. Apparently, the something blue at the wedding has got to be my balls.” These two story lines become the focus of the remainder of the episode.
Max and Caroline decide that instead of getting Nash fired, they just need to find him a better job. Han, however, is still fawning over his new employee, who he believes is thee hardest worker he now employs. Han tells everyone, “I’m unveiling a major improvement to the diner!” Han goes on to explain, “It’s for Nash,” and unveils a new dish washing hose. Nash tells everyone, “Oh, well, that’s real nice. Because the shower at Max’s place doesn’t work at all.” Han beams with pride and explains, “You better believe it’s nice. That’s the Spritzy 5000. Dishwasher Weekly gave it four out of four Dishies.”
Oleg, unimpressed, reminds Han, “You know our oven doesn’t work, right?” Han tells everyone, “Nash works hard, so only he may handle my beautiful hose!” Caroline jokes to Max, “Well, if he’s handling Han’s hose, he’s never getting fired.” Han tries to grab the hose, but he’s too short, so Nash helps him with a lift up. Han tells him, “Now just grab that thing and squeeze it till it sprays,” which causes Oleg to request, “Move to call a moratorium on the words “grab,” “squeeze,” and “sprays” till the wedding.” Nash sprays water all over his shirt and excuses himself by saying, “Well, I better go dry off in the men’s room.” When Caroline notices a group of women in the diner getting hot and bothered by Nash, she comes up with an idea to get him a job as a fashion model.
Later, at The High, Caroline tells Max, “I think I just sat another one of those lesbian blind-dates for our boss.” Max asks Caroline, “So, did you get Nash a modeling job yet?” Caroline tells her, “I’m working on it. It’s not like I can just call Tyra Banks. Well, that’s what her people said when I called.” Joe walks in, exasperated and declares, “Ugh, phone therapy ran long. Apparently I have more issues than I realized about Rosie leaving The View. Are my dates here yet?” When Caroline tells her that the three women seated are her dates, Joe looks them over, is unimpressed and says, “Lose them.”
Caroline gets some interest from the Del Monico Modeling Agency, but Nash needs photos for the interview. They hire Oleg for the job, who says, “Girls, perfect timing to ask me to do this photo shoot. The FBI just gave me my camera back last week.” Max retorts, “Oh, so you get your camera back, but I’m still waiting on that kilo of coke that I spent hours carefully filling my butt with?” They do the photo shoot in the skanky dishroom because they’re going with the hot dishwasher angle. max tells Nash, “Okay, Nash, stand over here near the hose and give me hot face, dead eyes. You know, like me when I mix NyQuil and DayQuil. I call it AfternoonQuil.”
When Oleg starts shooting, he declares, “Ugh, this is painful. He’s like Susan Boyle without the star quality.” They decide to spray his shirt with water and Oleg clicks away as nash tears his shirt off. Han walks in and gets upset, saying “What the hell is happening in here? I didn’t give anyone permission to use my diner for a photo shoot.” Han doesn’t understand what’s going on and says, “He has a job! He’s my number one worker.” Later, in Max’s apartment, Nash reads for a Cocoa Puffs commercial and in a thick Irish accent says, “Cocoa Puffs are a delicious part of any well-balanced breakfast.” Max tells him, “You suck, bro,” and Nash admits he’s nervous and not an actor.
Nash, Max and Caroline go the audition and when he says he has practiced the script, the woman conducting the interview tells Nash, “Oh yeah, well, we’ll be reading something a little different today.” Nash takes the news script and begins to read it, saying, “You know you like it. Bend over, bitch.” Max looks at her print out and says, “Uh, are we missing a page? Cereals have changed since I was a kid.” Nash asks, “Should I read the part where I notice the teacher’s not wearing any panties?” Caroline shouts out, “Oh, my God. This is porn! No wonder all those people out there were freaks.” Max quips, “No wonder I recognized so many of them.” The woman behind the desk says, “Don’t act so surprised. Everyone knows Cocoa Puffs is code for porn. Also, you sent us some pictures taken by someone very experienced in erotica.”
Max and Caroline ponder the job and if they should let Nash work in porn. When they’re told that Nash could start shooting tomorrow and get paid $1,000 a day, they talk it over. The woman holding the audition tells them Nash could have the lead in “Sorest Rump.” Caroline says, “Max, this has gone too far,” and without dropping a beat Max says, “I know, I was expecting you to just crash with me for a couple of days and get your own place.” Nash tells the girls, “Max, if you’re really keen on me being a porn actor, I’ll do it. She says, tomorrow, they start filming The Grand Booty Fest Hotel. And, they’ll pay me more for my accent. Also, what does gay for pay mean?” Max tells Nash, “Ugh, I guess it means we got to go.”
Later, at The High, a woman comes in and Caroline greets her. The woman tells Caroline, “I’m meeting someone here and my phone’s about to die. And if it dies, I will too. Do you have an outlet?” Caroline shares with the woman, “Screaming in the shower really works for me. Like, right into the water.” Joe walks into the room and tells the woman, “I’ll plug you in, honey, and I’ll take care of your phone, too. Girls, meet Marie.” When Marie exclaims that The High is amazing, Joe remarks, “Isn’t it amazing? I had the decorator redo it nine times. You can feel his anger in the walls.” Marie notices Nash and asks, “Who is this miracle?” Joe explains, “I found him in the Bowery next to a pile of burning trash. Go say hi. He’s even creamier and more delicious up close.”
Marie becomes intrigued with Nash and says, “You’re eating? That is so punk rock. Tell me everything right now.” Nash explains that he’s a dishwasher and he’s from Ireland. He tells Marie, “I was trying to become a model and I almost did porn an hour ago.” Marie tells him, “That is the best story I ever heard. Tell it to me again standing up. But this time, don’t talk. I see face, I see ass, I see model. Do you have a manager?” Nash tells Marie that his manager is Caroline. Marie asks Caroline to come over and talk about her client and says, “I am in love. He’s perfection.” It turns out Marie Prower is Senior VP of Marketing at Guess.
Marie tells Caroline, “So bring him into my office on Monday.” Joe repeats Marie and says, “You heard her, Caroline. Bring him into her office tomorrow.” Nash tells Max, “Well, I guess if this works out, I’m gonna have to quit my job at the diner. Will you be mad at me?” Max tells Nash, “I’ll be really sad. I’m gonna miss you a lot, you know? Not seeing you 24/7. But I would hate myself if I didn’t let you follow your dreams. Even if it means you moving out of the apartment, too.” Caroline tells Max that she was impressed with her performance, saying, “You are good.” Max tells Caroline, “Yeah, well, I mean he is cute, but I’m not all that coo coo for his Cocoa Puffs.” Their cash total changes from $711.00 to $1,211.00 and the show comes to a close for another week.
