And Martha Stewart Have a Ball (Part 2)

And Martha Stewart Have a Ball (Part 1) is the season finale of the first season of 2 Broke Girls.


A major opportunity for Max and Caroline falls through when her father's move to a new prison brings her story into the news again. Caroline lies in bed depressed until Max brings Chestnut to cheer her up. After learning Martha Stewart will be attending the Met Ball, they concoct a scheme to get her to try their cupcakes. Max's mood is then affected when Johnny, whose art has become more successful, comes into the diner to say goodbye to her as he's moving to Manhattan and getting married.


Caroline: Brilliant. Kind of like the Louis Vuitton travel wardrobe I used to have.
Max: Or the service elevator I was born in.

Caroline: As much as my shoes love being back in their place of birth...

Max: Oh, your shoes were born here? Mine were born in China, but I adopted them at Payless.

Caroline: Some day we'll have articles about us. You know pictures of you and me standing outside our country home...
Max: Hold on, we're rich, and still living together?


  • When Sophie says the line: "I'm like Richard Gere and your my two hookers", this is a reference to the 1990 feature film Pretty Woman which co-starred Julia Roberts.
