Dorothy's New Friend (#3.15)
19 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy is bored with her life so she gets herself a new friend, the author Barbara Thorndyke. She enjoys conversations about literature and intellectual stuff. but she is very condescending about Rose and Blanche and they can feel it. They plan to go all together to a restaurant, but as Rose's date arrived there is a problem because he is Jewish and the restaurant is restrictive from them. Dorothy is appalled and doesn't want to be friends with her anymore.

A good episode. Rose and Blanche talking with Barbara was pretty funny, and she was a good actor since I disliked her way before we found out that she supports and antisemitic establishment.
