Storyline

Alan lectures Charlie for teaching Jake to gamble and tipping pizza boy Ted $50. Alas, Berta's shopping shows that his credit-card is maxed out and is cut up. Stan explains that four months of expenses which exceed his income have wiped him out financially, until his next royalties pay-out. After missing a shipping date by buying cheap generic stuff and having to tip Ted $2, Charlie swallows his pride, then tears up the check rather then dine with Evelyn. Rose volunteers a loan, pittance in her rich family, even begs he accepts it as a friend. Written by KGF Vissers

A fun escape from the beach house
19 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very rarely in this first series did the characters leave the beach house, but this episode sees them visit Charlie's financial adviser, with funny results.

There's a bit more plot to this episode than the last, and that shakes things up a bit. The financial adviser is a fun character, and it's nice to see a bit more Berta and Rose in this episode too.

I can't say I ever really warmed to Holland Taylor's mother character across all the years of the show, and there's nothing here to alter my view.

However, this is another solid episode in a better than average first series.
