Comic Sans: Episode 4 - Money Wars
Logan wants a new computer, which would prevent MJ from buying the writing desk that she really needs. Force meets force. Money is tight: MJ is a 1st generation Haitian-American whose money problems have followed her since college; raised by a single mother, Logan had to quit college to get a job, and he’s been a struggling artist ever since. In the end, counseled by Jay, a friend and financial advisor, they compromise. Both MJ and Logan will have to give up things they love: MJ will postpone adopting a chinchilla; Logan will get fewer tattoos. Both agree that they will have to eat out less and do more cooking from home. Jay also offers other money-saving tips, and advises the couple to stop collecting comics and figurines because they aren’t usually lucrative. That advice is unpopular with both of them.
