The Monkey Show (#7.8)
24 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

To get over Dorothy and Sophia Stan goes through a monkey therapy where he dates a toy monkey. And Dorothy's sister Gloria is now broke after her husband died and comes over for a visit. Sophia hooks her up with Stan but when Dorothy finds this out she is especially mad at her mother.

A great episode. Loved the whole story with the monkey. Stan was hilarious with it, especially with his attachment to it and not wanting to give it away.

Dorothy's sister is annoying, it is amazing they got along so well. Maybe since it is the last season they are trying to wrap it up well
