Karen is in an even worse mood than usual, and she soon puts the kibosh on TJ's plans to host the filming of kids' TV show, 'Lenny's Lunchtime Laugh-in' - which is awkward, as TJ has already agreed to it. But Karen is soon to get her comeuppance. When she banishes a pair of bag ladies from the restaurant, one of them puts a curse on her. Karen is unrepentant, but Vince sees an opportunity to exact revenge on his boss, and the staff go about convincing Karen that the curse is really true. Karen's luck turns from bad to worse, and she finds herself begging the old woman to lift the curse. Written by Anonymous
