Blanche Devereaux: I haven't had a decent nights sleep in weeks. Every time I climb into bed I feel guilty.
Sophia Petrillo: Take down the video equipment.
Blanche Devereaux: I'm talking about the brass bed. I shouldn't have kept it. Rose was right, it's just like stealing.
Sophia Petrillo: Then call the store and return it.
Blanche Devereaux: Oh I couldn't do that, I've had it over three weeks. They won't take it back.
Sophia Petrillo: How much wear can you give a bed in just three weeks?
Sophia Petrillo: [Blanche shoots her a look, reminding Sophia of her favourite hobby] I see your point.

Mister Terrific (#3.24)
20 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose is dating a kids TV show host, Mr. Terrific. Dorothy is looking for a summer job at this time so he gets her a job as a consultant on his show. But as he doesn't accept her ideas he gets fired. Rose is put in his place for an episode, and he wants to jump from the building while Rose wants to save him.

A bit of a weaker episode. While the ending was a bit surprising and clever there wasn't much laughter. And the Mr. Terrific character is such a jerk and so condescending to people who work with him that not only doesn't one want him to have his job back, it is also hard to believe that they defend him so much.
