Fiddler on the Ropes (#4.18)
8 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia takes the money they put aside for certificate of deposit and instead buys a Hispanic fighter who can get them more money in the fight if he wins. Turns out he speaks English very well and not only that he also wants to apply to an academy as a violin player and an actor. They work together to get what they want.

A pretty amusing episode. I liked all characters and their actions. I especially loved how Dorothy was helping Pepe to practice fighting once she found out the win that comes with it.

His story is also pretty good and i liked how it all worked out and he got into the academy
