Twice in a Lifetime (#5.20)
15 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose's old boyfriend from the past, Buzz who is a musician, who moved long time ago comes to visit her. She goes to meet him and is always all confused because she misses him while she goes out without being with Miles. And Sophia gets tired of Dorothy telling her when to go out and leaves their home to live with an old friend of hers while the other girls really miss her.

The story about Rose's boyfriend is kind of boring, the character is also not very interesting. But it is a bit interesting.

I actually preferred the story about Sophia, and it had many laughs for me.
