2 Broke Girls recap: And the Candy Manwich

The diner is full of people using the free Wi-Fi, but no one's tipping or even ordering. In order to get the diners ordering something other than just coffee ("This is not a Starbucks. And I know that because we don't sell Norah Jones CDs or bananas"), Max takes the wireless router and threatens to pull the plug on the Internet. "And you—that sad email you're in the middle of writing to your ex-boyfriend, the one you shouldn't send anyway—gone. And you—that vaguely pornographic anime film you've been illegally downloading for the past three hours—gone. And you—that screenplay you've been writing, you can keep working on it, but we all know how it ends: With you moving back in with your mother," Max lashes out. She really is the epitome of badassery. The customers quickly start ordering, but when Max asks Caroline to put the router back in place, Caroline accidentally unplugs it, much to everyone's dismay.


From behind the counter, Max and Caroline observe two girls sitting at a table, laughing hysterically nonstop over cocktails. Seeing these girls having a great time without a care in the world makes Caroline realize that she and Max are not having fun and all they do is work. Max decides to take Caroline to a place in Williamsburg called Soup Kitchen, which Caroline thinks is an upscale urban bistro designed to look like a soup kitchen open to everyone, but when a homeless man comes in and sits at a table, she realizes the place really is a soup kitchen. Max explains that although homeless people may be the target audience, there's a lot of other people who can't afford to go out to eat.

"Why are there so many hipsters here?" Caroline asks. "Because this place isn't just for people who don't have jobs, it's for people who don't want them", Max replies. Caroline asks one of the serving nuns for the menu. The nun says there is no menu as it changes every day and only has about four items. Caroline then asks what she recommends. "Don't share needles and use condoms. But you didn't hear that last one from me," the nun says before walking away. "Are nuns even allowed to be sarcastic?" Caroline asks. "If they are, I have some serious thinking to do about my future," Max says.


As Max and Caroline enjoy some sloppy joes, a cute guy walks into the restaurant, and both the girls find him hot. They find out from the nuns that his name is Andy, and he just opened a candy store across the way, Candy Andy's Sweets & Treats, which instantly draws Max's interest as she loves candy. The girls are trying to decide which one should go for him. "He's clean and not a drug addict, so he's more my type," Caroline says. "Well, he's got a store full of candy and a penis, so he's more my type," Max says. That would be my argument as well. Max ultimately decides to let Caroline have him so she can steal some candy while Caroline has sex with him in the back room.

Caroline notices the store is closed. "You know what'd be fun?" she asks. "If we threw that trash can through the front window?" Max suggests. LOL, she's so gangsta. Caroline was actually going to say they should leave him a note. They notice the sign's turned around, and Andy is smiling at them! Caroline wonders if they should go in. "If I learned anything as a child, it's when a stranger offers you candy, you say yes," Max says. By the way, Andy is played by Ryan Hansen of Veronica Mars fame.


Wow, he looks cuter than I remember. The new haircuit definitely suits him better. Andy admits that he turned the sign around because we wanted the girls to come in. Caroline and Andy are hitting it off while Max is literally like a kid in a candy store. Andy decides to hook the girls up with some treats on the house. While Max is having a "gummy-gasm," Andy asks Caroline out for coffee sometime. However, Caroline starts feeling weird all of a sudden, which causes her to panic. "Relax, it's just your ladyparts waking up from hibernation," Max says. Caroline keeps gagging repeatedly until she runs to the bathroom to throw up. She even stops at one point to turn up the volume on Andy's record player so the music muffles the sound of her vomiting (that was hilarious). She comes out a while later, sweatily, only to throw up on Andy and his floor. Yuck.

"Word vomit. No, wait a minute... Actual vomit."

Later on, Andy drops by the diner, bringing little bags of candy with invites to a party at his candy store. When Caroline comes out of the kitchen and sees him, she whirls right back inside. Max says that Caroline is just a little embarrassed. Andy tells Max he'll hook her up with unlimited candy for the rest of her life if she can talk Caroline into going to the party. After he leaves, Max goes up to Caroline to tell her about Andy's party, but Caroline is worried that she destroyed any chance she had with him. "You didn't destroy anything. And it's good to let him know right off the bat that you have a gag reflex," Max says. I'm dying! This has got to be the dirtiest joke to ever come out of this show. Caroline refuses to go the party, even though Max thinks they're perfect for each other. "You're like Hansel and Gretel," she remarks. "They were brother and sister," Caroline says. "So?" Max asks.

Max goes to the party, and Andy is sad that Caroline didn't make it. He reveals that he used to work on Wall Street pushing stock in pharmaceutical companies, which also grabs Max's interest. She suggests they go back to her place so he can talk to Caroline. At their apartment, Caroline is nowhere to be found, so Max goes to the bathroom to pee, but when she opens the door, she finds Caroline pleasuring herself in the bathtub (à la Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23). Max doesn't realize what's going on at first, but when she does, she quickly closes the door. When Caroline, completely unaware of Andy's presence, comes out of the bathroom, Max looks at Caroline as if to warn her that Andy is standing right behind her, but Caroline thinks she's just being judgmental. "Don't look at me like that, it's not like I'm the only person in the world who masturbates," Caroline says. Max finally tells her Andy's there. An awkward Andy says they wanted to surprise her. "But then you surprised us," Max says. Caroline's sole reaction is to go back into the bathroom. Oh, dear...



At the diner, Max mocks Caroline about her little onanistic incident. Andy shows up, but Caroline is too embarrassed to see him. "He's already seen you at your worst. You vomited and masturbated, that's your full range," Max says in an attemp to comfort her. To make Caroline feel better, Andy takes off his bathrobe to reveal a cropped top underneath, and to further his embarrassment, he proceeds to do gymnastics in public—more precisely, a backflip, which Caroline says is amazing, not embarrassing. "Then come back to my house and watch me masturbate," he suggests. Now we're talking. "Or we could just get coffee," he continues. Max is thrilled—not for Caroline, but for herself. "I'm getting unlimited candy and maybe some pills."

Well, I was right when I said 2 Broke Girls would bounce back this week. This episode delivered so many hilarious one-liners that had me laughing really hard, so mission accomplished. And since candy was a recurring theme in this episode, I'll wrap up this recap with one of the most candylicious songs of this year:

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
