The Donor is the eighth episode in season two of Melissa & Joey, and the 38th episode of the overall series. It first aired on July 11, 2012.


Mel's friend Jackie decides to have a baby with the help of a sperm donor and asks Mel to help her decide between two anonymous men. Mel quickly finds out that Jackie's top choice is none other than Joe, with him telling her that he had donated out of desperation for money right out of the Ponzi scheme. Mel then tries to get Jackie to pick someone else, to no avail. When she hears that Joe's donation has suddenly become unavailable, Jackie takes matters into her own hands. Lennox and Haskell have problems when Haskell wants to sell an old book that they found at a garage sale for a large sum of money, while Lennox sees the book as a symbol of their love.
