Blair doesn't care about spending money, though.

I don't care for this episode; the sight of a 1980s-era computer talking and responding to Jo, as if it were AI, is ridiculous. The other parts of the episode are fine, and the Blair/Jo fight is done so much better than in "The Rich Aren't Different".
It seems incredibly dated now but back then the talking computers were so futuristic! This was during the era that the Wargames film was such a mega hit and i'm sure that's where they got that plot idea of having the computer talk to Jo.

I'm really looking forward to "The Rich Aren't Different"---that one airs on Thursday.
