Trivia: 2 Broke Girls

  • Actor Allusion:
    • "...and this is Caroline".
    • Max getting tasered in the pilot. Guess turnabout is fair play.
    • Caroline's attorney Leo was asked if he was on Law & Order, to which he said he wasn't. The actor actually was on L&O, playing Assistant Medical Examiner Borak.
    • Possible one in "And The Psychic Shakedown" where Max says the only way she would hand $50 to a stranger would be for a genital piercing. In The House Bunny Kat Dennings played a girl who is very strongly implied to have at least one such piercing.
    • Of course Max would know how to take a nude selfie since Kat Dennings seems to have a couple out there.
  • Alliterative Name: Caroline Channing played by Beth Behrs.
  • Dueling Shows: Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 had a very similar premise. Its pilot episode also had a plot thread where one of the roommates discovered the other one's boyfriend was cheating and told the new roommate, who didn't believe her until she caught the boyfriend in the act.
    • 2BG won the duel as its rival was Screwed by the Network and canceled midway through its second season.
    • And then 2BG even picked up one of that show's supporting players (see below)
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Deke is Mark.
  • Hey It's That Girl! Stifler's mom is Sophie and Darcy is Max - though the latter generally depends on which was viewed first.
    • Bebe, in "And the Pastry Porn" and later episodes at the pastry school, is Chloe.
    • The neurotic wedding planner in "And the Wedding Cake Cake Cake" is Flo, from the Progressive commercials.
