'And the DJ Face' Recap
(Credit: 2 Broke Girls Wikia)

It's pay day at the diner, and Han is handing out envelopes with everyone's checks in. He tells Oleg he has been docked a days pay since he didn't come into work the day before, Oleg replies that he was working from home. Han tells Earl not to spend it all in one place, and Earl comments that he wouldn't be able to spend it in two places. Caroline is upset since it cost her more than what she had earned to get into work that morning - and she walked.

Night time at Max and Caroline's apartment, and Caroline is sleeping. Someone comes out of Max's room and trips over the corner of Caroline's bed, waking her. She screams and turns on the light to reveal a man. She warns him that she was in the Nutcracker Sweet and he asks what that means, she kicks him in the balls to demonstrate. He collapses onto the floor and Max runs in. Caroline tells her she handled it, and Max explains that he's her Tuesday booty call. Caroline is shocked, and asks him if he's okay. Max helps him up and scolds Caroline, Caroline introduces herself and apologizes. His name is Sebastian. Max gets annoyed, she didn't want to know his name, and calls Caroline over to the kitchen. Sebastian asks if he can use their bathroom to check and see if everything is okay, and leaves the room. Max explains that they don't want to know each others names, and Caroline tells her that it's irresponsible. Sebastian comes back out of the bathroom, announcing that he's alright. Before he leaves Caroline introduces Max to him officially.

At the diner, Max asks Earl if he's wearing a new shirt. Earl says it is, and that he just got it in 1987. Max gets a text, and complains to Caroline that it's from Sebastian. He's inviting her to see him DJ. Max tells him the only thing she wants from him is sex, that the best sex is secret sex. Han, who is sat at the counter eating a sandwich, overhears and comments that if it's secret she shouldn't talk about it while he's eating. Oleg tells them he has a secret crush on a girl, Caroline comments that everyone knows it's on her. Oleg tells her she wouldn't be able to handle him anyway, and she says she could. Sophie arrives and Oleg says that she's his crush, Han says that its not a secret since the two of them have already had sex everywhere. Sophie says that they've even had sex in Han's apartment twice, Han is shocked, she says that they didn't even wake him. She goes to sit in her booth and Han comes out of the kitchen, telling her that he wants her back. Sophie isn't sure she wants him. He's created a sizzle reel of their best sex to remind her what they had, he mentions that its the extended edition, uncut, as she knows. Han gets up and throws his sandwich down, yelling to cancel his dessert as he storms into his office. Sophie says she'll watch the DVD that night. Max gets another text off Sebastian, Caroline wants to go to the club where he DJs, she hasn't danced in a long time.

They arrive outside the address Sebastian gave them, Caroline is thanking Max for taking her but she's worried that they have the wrong place since it's a Whole Foods. They go inside to ask directions and spot Sebastian DJing inside. Max is annoyed, asking what sort of loser goes to a supermarket to dance. Han walks past dancing and cheering and Max looks smug. They stop to speak to him and Max says she's going to leave before Sebastian spots them, Han says that his DJ name is 'DJ Fresh 'nd Local'. Max and Caroline leave

Night time in the apartment once again and Max storms out of her bedroom, turning on the light. It's Tuesday and Sebastian didn't come. Caroline comments that he might have had too much to drink, and Max tells her she meant he didn't show up. Caroline tells her that it's probably because they didn't stay and say hi while he was working at the club. Max tells her to stop referring to it as a club, it's a supermarket, and it's lame. Caroline tells her that she doesn't judge Max for any of her previous jobs, like when she worked at the Gap. Max asks how she knew, and Caroline tells her that when Max was drunk she tried to give her clothing advice. Someone knocks on the door, and Max threatens to cut Caroline's head off if she tells anyone about the Gap. Max opens the door, it's Sophie - she tells them that her Ouija board told her they were awake. She explains Ouija helps her make all her major decisions, Caroline says they're creepy and dangerous. Sophie asks the board if she should take Oleg back, it tells her yes. She tells them that she was shoving the pointer towards no. Max asks her what she wants, Sophie says she doesn't know. Caroline and Max go back to Whole Foods to see Sebastian, Caroline spots a classmate from Wharton - a girl who threw a party when Caroline lost her money. She leaves Max to hide from Hilary, while Max spends some time with Sebastian. She wants to leave, he tells her to try her hand at DJing. She spots Han and gives him a shout-out. Sebastian suggests going into the back for sex, but he needs someone to cover him. Max suggests Han.

Caroline is standing next to the dairy products, she takes a bottle of orange juice off the shelf and goes to drink from the bottle. Max is behind the shelf watching her, but Caroline doesn't notice until Max asks if she can help her. Caroline asks what she's doing and where Sebastian is. Max replies he's behind the milk on the bottom shelf. Caroline tells her off for having sex in the dairy case, Max tells her she's not since Caroline won't leave. Hilary spots Caroline and stops to talk to her, asking how she is, she's heard Caroline is still poor and working as a waitress. Caroline says that's insane. Hilary says that's great, she got worried when she noticed her shoes were three years old. Hilary leaves and Caroline grabs the orange juice to talk to Max, but she's moved to the milk and Sebastian is there now. She talks to Max and says she's leaving. As she puts the milk back a man calls for Hilary to go to checkout three over the loudspeaker system. Caroline grabs the milk but Sebastian is there again, so she goes back to the orange juice. She's happy because Hilary is a cashier. She's going to buy something and pay for it at register three. As she goes to leave, Sebastian groans and yogurts fly off the display.

Han gives Kelly in Prepared Foods a shout out, not the Kelly with the bald spot but the Kelly with the cystic acne. Caroline goes to pay for her salad at Hilary's check out, Hilary tells her that everything isn't great for her, and that her husband left her for her dad. The salad will cost twenty eight dollars, and Caroline only has fourteen. Caroline is shocked, Hilary says there's dinosaur kale on her salad and Caroline removes it. Hilary asks if she has enough money, and Caroline removes the eggs from the salad. Hilary gives her money back and tells her to go since she's holding up the line, making fun of her for not being able to pay. Max arrives back apologizing since she couldn't find her pants, turns out they'd ended up in the loading dock. Han interrupts Hilary's gloating and asks if Caroline dropped a twenty dollar bill. Caroline thanks him, and he tells her that he'd do anything for his favorite waitress. Hilary's happy that she was right, Max tells her that the store sucks and that she just had sex in the diary department. Hilary hands Caroline her change, but Caroline tells her to keep it and buy her dad's husband a wedding gift.

Max and Caroline walk into the back room of the diner, Sophie and Oleg are inside consulting the Ouija board. She asks if she should be with Oleg, it says yes for the fifteenth time. She says its unclear. Caroline tells her they should just get back together. Oleg tells Sophie to ask it to spell the name of the man she's supposed to be with, so she does, and the pointer starts to move. It spells out V-A-N-K-O. She says that 'Vanko' sounds like a cute name, and apologizes to Oleg since it says she's supposed to be with someone called Vanko. He shows her his drivers licence. His first name is Vanko, he goes by his middle name since there were seven people called Vanko in his family. She gets distressed since she didn't know that, and that means the board actually worked. She agrees that they can get back together but she leaves screaming since she's scared. He tells Max and Caroline that he can't wait to tell his brothers, Vanko and Vanko about it. He leaves and Earl comes in telling the girls that he heard they'd been talking smack about cashiers.

'And the DJ Face' Review

I can never hate an episode of 2 Broke Girls. Even if this episode was slightly less entertaining than the premiere, the episode still had enough laughs to keep this show in solid sitcom territory. Plus, this episode features the funniest sequence in a long time - Max and Sebastian's sex in the dairy case. Also, Sophie's storyline with the Ouija Board was very funny and appropriate for the time since the new film has been released.

Jesse Metcalfe was a funny addition to the cast in this episode and it was always funny when Max was like "who?" whenever Caroline would mention his name. It seems Jesse Metcalfe is getting himself around ever since I first laid eyes on him as the sexy gardener in Desperate Housewives ten years ago, including my beloved recently-cancelled Dallas. I will miss that show, sad face. Anyway, Jesse plays the supermarket DJ well. I was actually surprised he turned out to be DJing in a supermarket, I mean that is really bad. I was expecting there to be a secret club in the supermarket but nope. I don't know if that is an actual thing, maybe people do DJ in supermarkets somewhere in the world but definitely not where I live in the UK. Though to be honest, I think I would enjoy shopping more if there was live music. Also, the scene with Max and Sebastian in the dairy case and Caroline on the other side moving the milk and the orange juice to reveal their faces but they'd change positions each time was hilarious! Definitely one of my favourite scenes of the series so far.

It's always a treat to get a glimpse into Caroline's past when she was rich, so it was pretty cool to see Natalie Dreyfuss guest star as Hilary, an old enemy of Caroline's who threw her a party when Caroline lost all her money. That's pretty mean but hilarious which makes Hilary quite an entertaining character. Plus, I loved the way she sounded, so condescending with a sickly sweet tone to her voice. I actually wouldn't mind if she became a recurring character as the show does need some new blood. She could be the frenemy Caroline needs to have that rivalry with and fuel some more comedy in the show. Beth Behrs and Natalie Dreyfuss could totally pull off the rivalry, they have great chemistry.

One of my highlights of the episode was Sophie's Ouija Board moments. They timed it so well with the release of the Ouija movie and they really made it so realistic yet creepy by the end. Sophie has always stole the show whenever she's in an episode, which is probably why she always gets an applause when she walks into the diner. She is just so quotable, she's like a walking Mean Girls movie. Best quote of the episode for me was when she told Caroline they already had the Ouija Board and they didn't need another thing that's flat and wrong all the time. So mean yet so brilliant. When the Ouija Board spelt out Oleg's real name, Vanko, and Sophie panicked and leaves, that was just more brilliance from Jennifer Coolidge. She is one of the funniest characters on a sitcom ever. I really think I'm going to end up praising her every single review of 2 Broke Girls season four.

Episode Verdict

Another funny entry in the 2 Broke Girls series, season four is shaping up to be another great run for the show. Unfortunately, Nielsen ratings don't reflect the upward trend of the show as it really hits its stride, featuring shining moments and brilliant quotes that make it hard for me not to feature the entire script in my Favourite Quotes section. I always enjoy the characters and the show and I always love it when they introduce new guest stars and characters that challenge the main characters to really step up their game. With a couple of great guest stars this episode, 'And the DJ Face' continues a winning streak. "Oh No You Di'n't!"

What did you guys think of 'And the DJ Face'? Let me know in the comments and be sure to watch the next new episode of 2 Broke Girls, November 10th on CBS!
