List of 2 Broke Girls episodes The series chronicles the lives of two waitresses in their mids at the start of the series: Max Black Kat Dennings , the child of a poor working-class mother and an unknown father, and Caroline Channing Beth Behrs , who was born rich but is now disgraced and penniless because her father, Martin Channing, got caught operating a Bernard Madoff -esque Ponzi scheme.
The two work together at a Brooklyn diner, soon becoming roommates and friends while building toward their dream of one day opening a cupcake shop.

During most of the first season, Max is also a part-time nanny for the twin babies of Peach Landis Brooke Lyons , who during the season adopts Caroline's horse Chestnut.
During the third season, the girls reopen the business in the back room of the diner, using the window as a walk-up window. Max also enrolls in, and Caroline goes to work for, the Manhattan School of Pastry, where Max finds a love interest, Deke, marking the first time in the series that Max gets emotional for a man.
