And the Cupcake Captives is the fourteenth episode of the fourth season of 2 Broke Girls

Summary: Max enters the diner to Han mixing his own special drinks, which she thinks is a stupid idea until Han says it was Earl's idea, who has been using Han mixing drinks as a way to drink for free all afternoon. Sly Earl. He's still got it. We get a funny conversation about who's drink are who's (including Oleg's salted rim). In the cupcake shop, Caroline tells Max they sold the last T-shirt but Max shows Caroline she ordered more without Caroline knowing. Caroline has been busy with Sophie's wedding shower which Max hasn't been taking too seriously. Sophie arrives wearing a jazzed up cupcake T-shirt and asks about the cake for her shower the next day. Things are getting sorted and the shower is going to happen in Max and Caroline's apartment. Max is in her apartment trying the candies for the visitors but keeps spitting them back in the wrappers and putting them back. Caroline comes in and sees Max hasn't done the decorating properly as she's put up black instead of pink. Sophie soon arrives and acts surprised as she's practicing her entrances which is actually really funny to see how she puts on her happiness and surprise. She goes to use the bathroom when the FBI come. Thinking they're there to arrest them, the girls find out there's a man in the building holding three girls hostage for months and they need to evacuate. Sophie comes out and thinks he's a cop stripper and starts having him feel her up. Her "oh yeah" was hilarious. Max and Caroline get escorted out the building with Sophie following. Sophie's Polish friends arrive but they're not allowed past the line. Sophie still wants her presents and gets them from her friends (including a gift card she's sending back) before a reporter, Maria, wants to talk to the girls for Channel 2. It leads to Oleg coming out of the building followed by the perpetrator wearing one of Max's Homemade Cupcakes' T-shirts. The reporter (in comic fashion of course) asks into the camera, "what does Max's Homemade Cupcakes have to do with all this?" The girls are ambushed by reporters at the diner as they head inside to work where Earl shows the newspaper with them all over it. Journalists aren't very imaginative in sitcoms are they - Cupcake Captives, Cupcake Captor and the Cupcake Catastrophe. Haha. The T-shirt is in the 'what not to wear - EVER' in the fashion section, with Sophie coming in with a box left for Max and Caroline, containing the leftover stock of the T-shirts from the shop they sold them to. Outside the cupcake shop, Maria is interviewing Han about Max and Caroline. Han seems to be milking it though with his Cupcake Captive Cosmos. The girls set up an interview with Maria to clear their names as Caroline convinces Max to do the interview and not her. She hides away while Max talks to Maria but Max deepens her voice which is actually very funny. Caroline steps in and tells her the shirt did not commit the crime, he was only wearing their shirt. Maria cuts the interview and the girls go on their merry way. Caroline gets Sophie into the apartment to throw her the bridal shower she didn't get to have. Max surprised both of them when she returned home early. Max and Caroline talk about what they're going to do next since their T-shirt business is over but Max assures Caroline they'll get through it like they always do.
