Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 6: “Free Money, Free Money, Free Money!”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2 episode 6, I realized that sometimes we just need one person to truly believe in us.  That person may not always be right, but just knowing that he or she is in your corner can make a world of difference.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Should Mothers Incur Loss Financially?” Bridgette tries to get a job, as the bills begin to pile up all around her.  Meanwhile, Tutu is in for a shocking discovery and Rafi and Nelson have an argument.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“I want a pony.  Me too.”

In the beginning of the episode, we get to witness Bridgette’s long list of bills, as she desperately tries to find full time employment.  Bridgette even goes on an interview and seems to hit it off with the potential employer, but it doesn’t end up working out after she notices that Bridgette has a child.  Bridgette is prepared to sacrifice time with Larry to support him and even asks him what he would like to buy with their money in the future.  Larry responds with the only logical answer:  a pony!

“What are you, a welfare queen?”

After Bridgette applies for SNAP benefits, she is excited to try out her food stamps at the grocery store, only she learns that it does not apply to many of the purchases she actually needs.  Tutu is upset that Bridgette went this route and hilariously asks her if she is a welfare queen, which transitions us into a hilarious clip of Bridgette being the ultimate welfare queen in one of her daydreams.  I have to say that I loved the costume!  Bridgette then gets into an argument with Tutu after she refuses to give her the money to pay for the groceries, as Bridgette tells her that she is a terrible mother and storms out.

“I’m just dropping off the keys…”

Rafi drives Bridgette to Ally’s house to drop off the keys, but Bridgette discovers that no one is home and takes this opportunity to go on her own shopping spree in Ally’s house.  She takes groceries and a watch, among other things.  Bridgette realizes that it is wrong to steal from Ally, even though she probably won’t notice that any of the stuff is missing, but this scene was extremely comical to watch.

2

“I’ll wash your hair tonight if you want.”

We witness an argument between Rafi and Nelson, as Nelson begins to get frustrated since she is paying for all of their bills.  Nelson supports Rafi and believes in him, but she gets angry when he doesn’t wait for the plumber.  After Rafi confides in Bridgette, she gives him some really great advice and reminds him that he and Nelson are great together and that she is there for him every step of the way.  In a sweet moment, Rafi brings jugs of water home and offers to wash Nelson’s hair.  He then proposes to her and it looks like these two might have a happily ever after.  However, I am still leaning toward Rafi and Bridgette in the end.

1

“How about we make a bet?”

At the end of the episode, Bridgette and Tutu come together, as they both have a lot going on.  Tutu suggests that they make a bet and says that Bridgette will find her dream job within a year and will take any job she can get in the meantime.  Bridgette tells Tutu that she will find her own house to buy since Joe’s son is insisting on selling the house she has grown to love over the years.  Even though Bridgette and Tutu often argue, they love each other and this bet proves that they will continue to support one another as much as they can.  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 9 episode 13: “Is That Bone?”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 9 episode 13, I realized that it’s never easy to get back up and start over, but sometimes it is necessary.  Even if it feels hopeless, every now and again you will be surprised by what comes next.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Lost,” Frank suffers an injury that gets him a pass into the hospital, but most of the staff are not too thrilled with his presence.  Meanwhile, Fiona starts over, Lip has a heart-to-heart talk with Tami, and Liam decides he has had enough.  My top 5 moments from Shameless season 9 episode 13 are:

5

“It took them two days to realize I was gone.”

During the episode, Fiona notices that Liam is not in his room and she begins texting him to try and find him.  Everyone else starts reaching out to Liam too, but we find out that he has been hanging out at his friend’s house and comments on how long it took everyone to notice he was missing.  Liam decides not to answer any of their texts and continues to have some fun.  I can’t say I really blame him, but it looks like he is getting some quality Liam time in.  After all, there is always some kind of commotion going on in the Gallagher home.  Enjoy your vacation away, Liam!

“Pull the trigger!”

Carl is still upset about Kelly breaking up with him and he hates it that Debbie is trying to move in on his territory.  To make matters worse, he also finds out that he did not get into West Point.  During work, a robber points a gun at Carl and he simply tells him to pull the trigger because his day can’t get any better.  Only the robber actually shoots the gun and Carl proceeds to beat the crap out of him.  Perhaps a job in law enforcement is in his future?  Later on, Debbie tries to make a move on Kelly and is rejected.  Carl and Debbie actually share a sweet moment together, as Carl tells her that she will find someone to be with someday.  It’s nice to see that these two can still support each other even though they were both initially fighting over the same girl.

“The nuns know.”

The gig is up, as Kev and V’s daughters are finally spotted together at preschool.  The nuns call up Kev and V to discuss the matter further and explain what there are options are.  They can either pay back tuition to prevent being brought up for fraud or Kev can play Jesus and drag a 300 pound cross to the church while wearing his revealing costume.  I mean, I guess it beats paying the $1400, but it’s not every day that you get to see Jesus walking down the block.

“Is that bone?”

After Fiona’s former building is bulldozed, Frank is still inside and ends up injuring his leg severely during the commotion.  Frank says it is just a scratch, but his bone is literally sticking out.  Frank is no stranger to the emergency room, as the members of the staff know him quite well and refuse to give him pain medication.  We learn that Frank has been to this particular hospital 52 times and he has no insurance.  However, Frank gets a lucky break after all, as he ends up with a short visit and lots of pain medication before being dumped out on his street by the ambulance.

“Did you let Lip recruit you into that cult?”

Fiona continues to go to AA meetings and is starting to pick up the pieces.  After meeting with her lawyer, she learns that she needs to prove that she is a contributing member of society since she is facing assault charges from the woman she punched in the face during the block party.  Fiona can’t really be picky with her options and ends up taking a job at a gas station.  At the end of the episode, Max walks in and offers her a real chance to start over.  He explains that they are moving forward with the project and that he would like to buy Fiona out, which would give her $100,000.  Talk about a lucky break.  I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat when I saw a man walk in the gas station, as I was kind of hoping it might be Jimmy.  However, it looks like this chance encounter will finally allow Fiona a fresh start.  Stay tuned for the season finale next week, as we say goodbye to our beloved Fiona Gallagher.  I’m not sure I am ready to, however.
