Take Him, He's Mine (#2.3)
12 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Stan comes over because he needs a shoulder to cry on, but Dorothy has no time because she has a great date so Blanche goes out with him and they are having fun time. When Dorothy gets dumped and finds out that Blanche is still hanging out with Stan he gets really upset about it. And Sophia and Dorothy make lunch cart business.

Pretty good episode addressing why people don't like it when somebody dates their ex. Dorothy's explanation at the end was the most reasonable one I ever heard in my life. I almost now understand people in this situation.

Besides making sense it also had its funny moments. Such as Blanche talking to the girl under the blanket thinking it is Blanche as well as the business issues of Sophia and Rose
