One for the Money (#3.2)
17 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia tries to come up with a great idea to make a profitable business and the girls remember the times they tried to make other businesses. There is the story about the wedding business when the couple almost breaks up and then goes to Vegas, the time when Sophia and Dorothy wanted to make money to give each other TVs for Christmas and the dancing competition.

Another great themed episode. I especially love the dancing competition. Although you can totally see that it is not Rose when she makes her solo. But it is full of funny parts including a great ending. And the way wedding business ends is also hilarious!
