“And the Spring Break” is just plain silly. There are some funny quotes sprinkled throughout, but I didn’t laugh much.

At 3:00 a.m., Caroline (Beth Behrs) is awake and chipper, chipper, chipper, working on the cupcake website. Seriously, you have to be on uppers to be awake and working at this ridiculous hour. And Max (Kat Dennings) is also awake, helping Caroline. They work the night shift at the diner so how do they manage to be up at all hours? Right, they are in their 20s. I remember my 20s. And not so fondly, let me tell you.

Oleg (Jonathan Kite) and Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge)

It doesn’t take long for Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge) and Oleg (Jonathan Kite) to hook up. She’s embarrassed at being caught with unkempt hair and clothes, exiting the diner kitchen by way of the back door … but why? She doesn’t want to come off looking like a whore? She seems like a mature (albeit, silly), self-assured woman who’s comfortable with her sexuality so why does she care what others think? She’s having a ball, having satisfying sex in different places, so own it, Sophie! Stop slinking off like you committed some heinous crime.

I find it funny Caroline keeps telling Max not to fall victim to gay stereotypes. That’s exactly what this episode does—stereotypes the gay community. Let me count the ways. A gay couple, Michael (Greg Worswick) and Steve (Brian Gross), has a dog named Wynonna Judd; the security code for their apartment is Liza (as in Minnelli); their apartment is quite posh; and they gleefully dish about the show Revenge:

Michael: “I love her, so Madeline Stowe in Revenge.”
Caroline: “I don’t watch that.”
Stephen: “We love it.”
Michael: “It’s about a young blonde woman who is taking revenge on all the people who destroyed her life.”
Caroline: “Yeah, too close to home.”

 When Michael and Steve ask Caroline and Max to dog sit Wynonna, they leave instructions for the girls to clean their dog’s, ahem, “anal glands.” I ask you, who makes such a request and then later claims it was just a joke!? Puhhlease. You wouldn’t ask anyone other than a vet to do that!

It’s too bad Han Lee (Matthew Moy) is reduced to a joke in this episode. He’s an amiable enough manager, although he’s usually clueless about a lot of things (which is a joke in itself):

 

Earl: “The guys in booth 2 just asked Han if he was on the down-low. They think he’s gay.”
Max: “That’s a step up; usually people think he’s a lesbian.”

One thing you have to say about this show: Everyone is fair game.

Current total: $775.00

My favorite forms of escapism are books and telly/film. I require plenty of solitude.
