Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 5: “The Gang Texts”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 5, we learned that it’s important for the gang to be on the same page, but things get complicated when they decide to try out group texting at the zoo.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “The Gang Texts,” the gang goes to the zoo, but everyone has their own agenda for the day.  Charlie and Mac want to go see the Meerkats and Dennis insists on seeing a lion feeding, so they decide to keep track of one another with a harmless group text.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 5 are:


“He’s stuck behind a woman driver and he wants to shoot himself.”

I mean, clearly that’s obvious from Frank’s use of emojis, which Charlie seems to have a talent for deciphering, but Mac has a lot more trouble keeping up with the group text.  Even though the gang wants to stick together at the zoo, it looks like they are going to all split up for now.  This should go well…


“Too late, Dee!”

“She sucks!”  Dee actually really tries to throw in some harmless insults along the way, but her text is always just a minute too late.  Dennis reminds her that speed is important in a comedy text, but Dee doesn’t give up and perhaps she will get the hang of it before it’s too late.  You got this, Dee!


“You’re dead to him.”

Mac is worried that Dennis is mad at him and decides to send him a block of text, asking if Dennis is ignoring him.  Dennis quickly responds with “K,” but Mac finds out that Dennis didn’t even read the text and just responded that way because he doesn’t care.  Dennis is really preoccupied with seeing the “ducking lion” after all.  Stupid auto correct!


“This is all fine…”

Mac is convinced that he has found a way to make things up to Dennis, claiming that he overheard someone say that they are going to sacrifice a goat to the lion.  Dennis thinks this is definitely some worthy “Jurassic Park shit” and seems up for it.  Only they wind up at the petting zoo and it’s clear that Mac has no idea what he is talking about.  It’s OK because Dennis says, “This is all fine…”


“The circle of life!”

Just when it seems like all hope is lost, the gang winds up together at the Meerkat display.  They each pop up in different bubbles while The Lion King’s “Circle of Life” plays in the background, which was probably the best part of the episode. 

Dee is also finally able to come in the clutch with her text and it seems like the gang is happy again.  Maybe they should stick to face-to-face interactions for a while though…

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
