YMMV: 2 Broke Girls
  • Acceptable Targets: Hipsters, Asians, and the wealthy.
    • The whole of Poland is apparently some third world wasteland.
  • Base Breaker: Sophie. For some she's an annoying and pointless character who isn't funny, relies on the same bland humour with each appearance and her role as of late has been reduced to her showing up at random parts during the episode to spout off unfunny one liners. While others think that Sophie has her genuinely funny moments, and some fans admit the fact she's played by Jennifer Coolidge redeems her slightly.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Within the show's continuity, at least. In the middle of "And the Pearl Necklace," Chestnut suddenly appears in Caroline and Max's apartment and eats some cupcake batter. No explanation was made of why he was back there and not in the stable, and his presence in the apartment hasn't been mentioned again.
    • A earlier episode points out they got him back from the stable.
  • Cargo Ship: Max and Caroline's bathtub.
    • And now Caroline and the showerhead.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song, "Second Chance" by Peter, Bjorn and John, which is also used for transitions.
  • Ethnic Scrappy: Han, Oleg, and/or Sophie to some people.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Max and Caroline
  • Freud Was Right: Caroline insists that she isn't sexually frustrated despite making a bed that suspiciously looks like a vagina.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The year before this show came out, Kat Dennings starred in a film called "Daydream Nation", playing a character named Caroline.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Many people just watch the show for the titular girls and do not care for any of the other characters
  • Love It or Hate It: Has acquired a reputation as being an acquired taste for some.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Caroline's voice can be very grating to some ears.
  • Never Live It Down: Caroline in "And The Hold Up" when she urinates while the diner is being robbed. Sophie keeps cracking jokes about it and only stops after Han does the same thing at the theater and switches to him.
  • Relationship Writing Fumble: Max and Caroline have way, WAY more sexual chemistry with each other than with any other character. Or maybe it's not a fumble.
  • The Woobie: Caroline. Thanks to her father's crime, she has lost several opportunities to improve her and Max's business.
