Joust Between Friends (#2.9)
14 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy looks for a job during her teaching break time and Blanche gets her to work in the museum. Only she gets jealous when Dorothy gets to do tasks she thought she would. Such as organizing a banquet. Only the banquet is organized for her and Dorothy has to keep it a secret. And Rose finds a dog she brings home until she finds the owner. Only Dorothy doesn't like dogs.

Another good episode. Dorothy is my absolute favorite in this episode. Great acting and great lines. And I love how at the end she cried about the dog leaving! Actually I would say maybe the dog is my favorite character in this episode. Adorable! I also like how Rose talked to him.
