Even Rose has bad days!
We’ve all had these days, amirite? You’re trying your best, doing all the things and giving it your all but nothing is going right. Or maybe you’ve just been ambushed with a lot of bad luck and all you want to do is get back into bed. I know I’ve been there for sure. Rose expresses the sentiment above when she and the Girls have a lot of bad luck that they attribute to the firing of their housekeeper, Marguerite. As their bad luck unfolds they are convinced that Marguerite put a curse on them.
(Does anyone want to talk about the way Dorothy pronounces Marguerite? I’ve tried to replicate it on my own and it takes a significant amount of effort. But I digress…)
After firing their mediocre housekeeper they experience car trouble, lack of sleep, Blanche gets dumped, Rose slams her hand in the door of her car and a bunch of other crappy things. The Girls are convinced that Marguerite put a curse on them. At first, Dorothy takes the very practical approach insisting that the Girls are just having a string of bad luck, but eventually even Dorothy eventually can’t believe that all this is coincidental. The Girls do all they can to suck up to Marguerite and keep her happy including giving her the job back, asking nothing of her and her duties, and showering her with champagne and gifts. Of course we learn that it all ends up being coincidental and their superstitions get the best of them. It turns out that there’s a solid reason that Marguerite is such a poor housekeeper; she’s in law school and does her studying while she’s at work. Hilarity ensues as this all unfolds and the Girls feel extremely foolish.
Look ya’ll, we all have bad days. It’s unfortunate, but true. The good news, however, is that all those crappy days that unfold are what makes the great days SO great. For all the lows we’ll experience there will (hopefully) also be a bunch of highs. For all those having a bad day today, I hope I hope it passes quickly! And remember; you can also watch this episode and know that you are not alone. This too shall pass!
Give it a go (and pay no mind to the marginally slower sound and frame. You can find this episode on Hulu if the sound or frame distracts you):
