Jimmy's rust bucket being too unsafe to drive Hope around, Sabrina convinces him to buy a new car, even if that means his first-ever loan. The Chance parents however talk him out of taking a loan, snapping up the second-hand DeLorean they all consider a dream car as Jimmy's budget only stretches to another near-wreck. Sabrina gets him eager to borrow after all, but then they find his credit rating is 'no way', due to 'identity heft' by his parents when he was a toddler. So the family confronts credit rating official Dennis Powers, who hates their irresponsible type but loves children and DeLoreans. Written by KGF Vissers

Raising Hope Credit Where Credit Is Due
9 January 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Barney is having another theme for the store but no one is listening, Jimmy and Sabrina talk about getting a new car which Sabrina tells Jimmy to get. Jimmy wants to talk to his parents and Sabrina tells him he should not have to talk to his parents. Jimmy is told by his parents not to get a loan and tell him to go get an old car. Sabrina comes along and is not impressed by any cars. A car is found but instead of getting the new car Jimmy gets Virginia's old one while Bert and Virginia gets the car the family called their diamond. Sabrina then brings Jimmy to a car shop and Jimmy loves the new cars she showed him. When Jimmy goes off to sign some papers he finds out he cannot get credit because his name was already used when he was younger. He then thinks back about his parents getting him to sign signatures. Jimmy goes home and asks his parents why they used his name for credit when he was young. The chances then have to go to the bank to solve the problem but the banker does not want to solver their problems. To get rid of Jimmy's debt by showing the banker the car that the banker just falls in love with the car and lets them off. Weird episode that moved too fast for me to care about anything they put on the screen. The acting and writing was bad to me compared to past episodes the show has done.
