2 Broke Girls recap: And Too Little Sleep

This episode starts with some good ol' hipster bashing at the cupcake shop. "Can I get another refill?" an annoying hipster guy asks. "Can I get an explanation of why you're wearing overalls when there are no goats around?" Max retorts. All of a sudden, the guy starts drumming his hands on the table. "Overalls, free coffee refills, and drumming. We can stop looking, we found the world's most annoying hipster," Max says. Caroline reminds her not to give attitude, as they're not in the diner. Still, Max walks up to the hipster guy. "We get it, your tribe's in trouble," she mocks. Caroline says she's kidding, and tells him to help himself to a fresh mocha almond refill. "By the way, sick beats," she adds as she throws him a peace sign. "What are you, a Japanese teenager?" Max asks. "It's a gesture of goodwill," Caroline replies. "Okay, but if I see you doing an open heart, I will kill you," Max warns. I feel the same way about that stupid sign.

Andy walks by the shop and Max waves, but Caroline doesn't seem too happy about it. "He didn't die just because you stopped letting him touch your boobies," Max says. "Well, I don't wave to the guy at the record shop that you had sex with," Caroline replies. "I had sex with the guy at the record shop?! I should keep a diary," Max says, surprised. Moments before Andy walks into the shop, Caroline runs and hides in the back, blaming Max's wave for starting it. "I'm sorry, my hand is friendly. Ask any guy in high school," Max justifies.

Andy comes in and asks Max how Caroline is doing. He also wants to make sure everything's cool with him and Max, as she hasn't texted him a picture of an unlikely animal friendship in 48 hours—it's kinda what they do now. After he leaves, Caroline comes back out and declares he got fat since they broke up. "It's only been four days," Max says. "Wynonna Judd gets fat in an hour," Caroline remarks. Suddenly, a sleep-deprived Max unconsciously pulls down her pants, much to the hipster's delight. Caroline warns her she's taking her pants off in public. "Oh, my God! I'm so tired, I forgot where I was!" Max exclaims.

At the diner, Caroline falls asleep standing up, and Max tells her table she will take their order when she wakes up. One of the customers insist they're really hungry. "Leave her alone! Do I come to your job and wake you up?" Max sasses off. Han reprehends the girls, but Max asks him to cut them some slack, as they're tired from working two jobs. In the kitchen, Caroline tells Max she just hung up from a very panicked phone call. "The guy from the record store called to say I have super gonorrhea?" Max asks. LOL. Actually, it was a woman who called to confirm her order for 1,000 cupcakes for tomorrow at 10:00 a.m, which Caroline forgot to tell Max about because she's been really tired. "I'd rather have super gonorrhea!" Max exclaims. Caroline says they just have to come up with an excuse to leave. The girls rush out of the kitchen as Caroline pretends to be sick. "We don't know what's wrong with her, but it's coming out of both ends, it might be super gonorrhea, BYE," Max announces before they run off.

The girls are in their shop's kitchen making the cupcakes. Max gets a text from Andy with a picture of a deer nursing a turtle. He also asks how Caroline is. Max thinks he's not over Caroline, but Caroline reminds her that he was the one who broke up with her. "Maybe he regrets it. Maybe you two are like Chris Brown and Rihanna, minus the punching and the duet," Max jokes. Caroline says that although Andy was very supportive, he thought she cared more about her career than him, and as such, he felt like he had to pull away for his own well-being. "Oh, my God, we are Rihanna and Chris Brown! But I'm Chris Brown," Caroline realizes. "Speaking of Chris Brown, I'm gonna start to batter," Max says.

Caroline notices the oven is wobbling, and she thinks it's because of the wood thing under the leg. Max says it's the shim, but before she can explain that it's holding the leg up, Caroline kicks the shim out of the way, breaking the oven. Caroline says she didn't know what a shim wasshe thought it was some word blend Max came up with: "You know, like she/him for a transsexual—a shim." "You thought a tiny transsexual was holding up our stove?" Max asks sarcastically. Because their oven at home is too small, the girls run back to the diner and admit they lied to get off their shift. Despite their lying and Max's series of short jokes, Han agrees to let the girls use the oven and any of the supplies they need. Han, Earl, and Oleg volunteer to stay after hours and help. "You know, because of my childhood, I won't be able to process the fact that you've all just done something nice for me, so if I run into you in ten years and start crying, this is what it's about," Max pours out. Aww.

Han is not exactly nailing the task of frosting the cupcakes. Max puts her arms around him to show him how it's done, but he ends up squeezing the bag a bit too hard. "It's okay, Han, it happens to a lot of guys their first time," Max taunts, then moves him to batter. She accidentally spills frosting on her apron, so Caroline takes it off to wipe it down. "Pretty slick move, you wanna try for my bra next?" Max says. In response, Caroline does the worst imitation of a man ever. "That's your go-to guy voice? Is his identity being protected on Dateline?" Max asks.

This is what I call premature frosting

Later on, after everyone else has left, Andy sends Max a picture of a cat and a dolphin kissing. Seeing that Caroline seems upset about it, Max asks if she wants her to stop texting him, but Caroline assures she's fine. Max puts her hair up in a ponytail, and they realize that one of her earrings is missing. The girls search through the batter for the earring, because that's where Max has been hanging over all night, but it's not there, meaning it must be in one of the 900 cupcakes that are already baked. Caroline says they have to start pulling them apart, but Max refuses to do it—she would rather "hitch a ride West and become a sister-wife" than start over.

As they rip up the cupcakes, Max asks if she can't text the woman and tell her they can't do the job, but Caroline insists they need the $4,000. She grows angry at Max, accusing her of putting her texting friendship with Andy before her loyalty to her best friend and business partner. She also thinks Max should consider the girl code: "The girl code means that when a girl breaks up with someone, you don't interfere with their boyfriend, because she needs some distance!"


Conversely, Max faults Caroline for forgetting to tell her about the cupcake order sooner. They start throwing smashed cupcakes at one another when Andy suddenly shows up to help, after receiving a text from Max. "Um, that was a pre-girl-code text," she admits.

"On the list of things I feel guilty about in life, calling you to help in the middle of the night is number two. It would be number one if I hadn't pushed that girl down the stairs to get into the 98 Degrees concert before her," Caroline confesses to Andy in the kitchen. Two words: Nick Lachey. Andy admits he's been thinking about her pretty much all the time since they broke up, and that he might have overreacted to her obsession with the cupcake shop. Caroline says that even though it didn't work out, they still care about each other. Max comes in as Caroline walks out with a tray of cupcakes. "Well, that's the end of it," Max says. "Yeah, I think it is. Max, I'm talking about more than the cupcakes," Andy replies. "Yeah, I could tell by your Bradley Cooper tone," she jokes. He says he has to break up with Max, too, or he will always be asking her about Caroline. "You're dumping me? Wow, last guy who dumped me, I burned down his house and moved. Still wanna continue this conversation?"

The girls finally go home. Caroline admits that when Andy told her he'd been thinking about her since the breakup, she realized she'd only been thinking about the cupcakes. Max gets a text on Caroline's phone from the woman who ordered the cupcakes, saying they loved the cupcakes. Caroline realizes she switched the aprons after wiping them down, and she finds Max's earring in the apron she is wearing. "We're two very different kinds of idiots, but we're idiots," Max concludes. "And yet, somehow we work. We're the most unlikely animal friends," Caroline replies. "I don't know about that, but a picture of me nursing you would definitely go viral," Max says. Caroline is too tired to pull her bed down, so she says she's sleeping with Max. "No, you're not, you have super gonorrhea," Max says. HAHAHAHA!
