Cheaters (#5.22)
15 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy goes to meet the guy who she had an affair withe. They get along very well and he even asks her to marry him. But Dorothy doesn't feel those are true feelings but most likely because he is afraid to be alone and it is true. Sophia and Blanche find a wallet with another guy and decide to wait until somebody picks it up and if not share, but he just tricks them and gets the money.

A pretty funny episode. Loved the wallet part, was glad to to recognize some of the guest stars such as Sam McMurray.

And the St. Olaf story that Rose tells about a boy who cried wolf was especially funny, almost cried from laughing!
