Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 7: “The Gang Solves Global Warming”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 7, we learned that “when opinions meet facts, that’s when you get truth.”  Well maybe not, Mac, but we do learn how to beat the heat Sunny style!  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 Solves Global Warming,” there is a major heat wave in Philadelphia and the gang attempts to keep cool while also protecting the environment.  I’m not so sure about some of their methods, but they keep the laughs coming along with some great heat wave music!  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 7 are:

5

“We’re actually helping our business and the environment.”

After hearing a warning on the news to keep the temperature at 76 degrees to conserve energy, the gang decides to keep the AC at Paddy’s Pub much cooler to attract more customers.  They actually bring in quite the crowd, but I’m not sure that they can say that this is also good for the environment.

Now that they have a lot of people inside, they will need to make sure they maintain the peace, but not everything goes according to plan when resources start running low…

4

“Since you want to walk the walk, why don’t you go get the ice?”

Dee is super excited to be sporting her Eco friendly shoes and is recording an Insta Story about “walking the walk.”  The gang is not sure who would ever watch this, but they tell Dee to head out to get some ice.

Dee is ready to record the journey with Charlie, which absolutely captured my attention, since Dee and Charlie episodes always make me laugh.  Let’s see how this goes…

3

“Global warming is the f*cking best!”

Frank and Dennis continue to lower the temperature at the bar, hoping to see some nips, but things get a little bit complicated when some of the workers from the fish factory show up.

After everyone starts dancing in their underwear, Frank is beyond thrilled and is not afraid to shout out his enthusiasm for global warming…

It’s getting hot in here for sure!

2

“I don’t want to wear trash on my head…”

This episode was absolutely hilarious and the Dee and Charlie moments were really outrageous.  Charlie continues to call out “cut” and “stop” while recording Dee’s Insta Story and their quest to go get ice is foiled several times, but they are not about to give up just yet.

After a failed attempt at a Ride Share, Dee is losing her patience, but Charlie is improvising his own Eco friendly fashion with a garbage bag and a pizza hat for shade. Charlie reminds Dee that they should just take the bus, as we get to witness Dee freaking out on the bus with the same bus rider from Season 4, Episode 6 (Mac & Charlie Die, Part 2)!

Here’s the original clip:

“I hate the bus!”

Once again, Sunny does an amazing job of bringing us some fun nostalgia without hitting us over the head with it. I loved this scene!

1

“God dammit, Charlie!”

At the end of the episode, Dee and Charlie finally show up and Dee is ready to show off her Insta Story, except Charlie literally just filmed Dee freaking out and yelling at people, which was the greatest thing ever.

Dee continues to yell, “Don’t say cut” at Charlie, which made the dynamic between these two even more hilarious.

This was probably my favorite episode of the new season so far and I can’t wait to see what they do next!

If you enjoyed some of the heat wave appropriate music in this episode, here are some of my highlights. Enjoy!

Glenn Frey – The Heat Is On (From “Beverly Hills Cop” Soundtrack)

Hot Blooded – Foreigner

Nelly – Hot In Herre (Official Music Video)

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 3: “Dee Day”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 3, we were reminded that “preparation is the key to victory,” but what happens when the plan is thrown off by…Dee Day?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “Dee Day,” it’s finally Dee’s turn, as she gets a full day devoted to her.  Only the gang isn’t necessarily too thrilled about this, as they are plotting another scheme that requires their full attention.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 3 are:

5

“Who cares about her feelings?”

If you are a Sunny fan, then you will remember “Mac Day” (season 9, episode 5), when the gang was forced to go through an entire day doing whatever Mac wanted to do.  Well, the tables have now turned and it is Dee’s turn to shine, but everyone seems ready to forget a day devoted to Dee, but she’s still prepared to make it work no matter what.

As soon as Dee begins, she wants to talk about her feelings and of course, the gang decides to tune her out, focusing in on their own inner monologues.  After all, it’s not like they get to yell into the “Scream Pillow” anymore.

4

“Her characters suck!”

Dee hilariously decides to force Dennis, Charlie, Mac, and Frank to dress up as some of her former characters, which was actually really funny, but things get a little weird when they wind up on stage and she forces Charlie and Dennis to kiss.  Mac clearly feels left out, but when Frank gets on stage, he steals the show, finally releasing the clams.  Leave it to Frank to make something weird even weirder.

3

“I want to scream Bird!”

The gang is not allowed to make fun of Dee during Dee Day and she decides to take them all out bird watching.  Of course this makes the gang want to scream out “Bird” even more, but they are forced to swallow down their insults.  Keep it going, Dee!

2

“That’s what his soul looks like.”

Dee doesn’t hold anything back and explains that she wants Dennis to remove his make-up, but things get really interesting when Dennis walks in and looks like a completely different person.  Dennis is forced to kick game to a lady with this appearance and it clearly is a nightmare for him.  The gang points out that his pec has even been deflated, suggesting that perhaps the Golden God isn’t really that much of a god underneath all the lies and deception.

1

“You just insulted me on Dee Day.”

After the gang reveals that their ultimate plan was a success, caring more about getting a public urination act to pass by distracting the one female member of the board, Dee tries to explain that she is actually the one who executed everything, but of course they do not want to listen.

When the clock goes off, they start insulting Dee, but she has outsmarted them, turning back the clock, which means that they will be forced to endure another Dee Day and I have to say that they deserve it.  Go Dee!

Overall, this was another fun throwback to a fan favorite episode, but I’m still waiting for some crazy laugh out loud moments.  Hopefully we will get a Charlie centric episode soon!

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 1 season premiere: “The Gang Gets Romantic”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 1 season premiere, I learned that the gang has a softer side, really embracing what makes a rom-com truly special.  Although there seems to be some confusion on what a Meet Cute actually is.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “The Gang Gets Romantic,” Charlie and Frank place an ad for their luxurious Airbnb, which features sleeping in the same bed with them.  Meanwhile, Mac and Dennis try out their own version, and Dee tries to land a part as well, even though romantic leads are supposed to be likable.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 1 season premiere are:

5

“It’s a good ad…”

“Gruesome twosome seek exotic Europeans for week long rental in luxurious one room apartment…bed to be shared with owners.”  Charlie thinks it is a good ad, but Dee and the others are not really so sure.  We learn that Charlie and Frank are trying out their own version of an Airbnb, although Mac and Dennis think they are trying to steal their own “Meet Cute” idea, which Charlie confuses for “meat cubes.”  Either way, this should be interesting…

4

“That’s a hard no for me.”

Charlie and Frank are extremely excited to meet Alexi and Nikki, but they change their minds when two Austrian men show up at their door.  They try to go to bed early, but it appears that the bed may now finally be too crowded, as they start to have second thoughts about their decision…although there is yodeling.

3

“Pushing away a soulmate.”

After Mac and Dennis’s plan backfires when their guest, Lisa shows up at their own Airbnb with her husband, Greg, they decide to get Dee on board.  Mac sends Greg on a mission to get a plunger and Dee happens to be waiting in the same hardware store and it’s the only plunger left.

Dee comments on how “it’s charming and cute and fun how we met over a plunger,” but Greg is not so convinced and decides to just go to another hardware store.  We know you are much more than a “diversionary plot twist,” Dee!

2

“That’s not romantic…or comedic.”

After hearing Lisa and Greg arguing over someone named Teddy, they assume that one of them had an affair.  Mac comes to the conclusion that perhaps the Meet Cute is meant for him and tells Greg how he feels with a moving soundtrack playing in the background.  Greg explains that Teddy is their son who died and suddenly everything is not so romantic or comedic, as Dennis realizes that he doesn’t have a music soundtrack for a dead kid…

1

“I love you!”

It initially seemed like we would not get the satisfying rom-com movie ending, but Charlie and Frank realize that they should have never kicked out Alexi and Nikki and decide to rush after them at the bus stop, especially when Charlie sees that they left them a present of actual meat cubes.

Alexi says that they will return in one year and Charlie and Frank promise to be waiting for them, as Charlie shouts, “I love you!”  After all, he had Frank at “gash.”  Stay tuned for more Sunny fun!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 7: “The Gang Does a Clip Show”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 7, I realized that doing a clip show doesn’t necessarily mean you are giving in to “lazy writing.”  After all, who knew that doing a clip show could potentially alter reality?  It’s Always Sunny does a clip show brilliantly, bringing us back to some of our favorite laugh out loud moments, while still being original about the premise.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Gang Does a Clip Show,” the gang is bored when they have to wait approximately 30 minutes for their phones to do a system update, which causes them to reminisce about some of the good old days.  As they start to bring us back to some of our favorite moments on the show, they realize that they are also distorting some memories and they run the risk of altering reality.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 7 are:

5

“Why was that memory in a different language?”

As the gang begins to bring us back to some of their favorite memories, Charlie takes a stab at it and brings up one of my favorite episodes of all time:  “The Nightman Cometh.”  Only as he takes us back there, he is remembering everything in another language, which confuses the rest of the gang.  The gang tells Charlie that he never spoke Chinese, but Charlie is convinced that he did, reminding us about the episode:  “Flowers for Charlie,” when he is the subject of an experiment and believes in his mind that he has become smart overnight.  This leads to the gang suggesting that they remember times where somebody didn’t know what was happening, which leads to some hilarious moments where characters literally ask, “What is happening?”  I absolutely loved the transition here.

4

“You can’t beat physical comedy memories.”

Dee is excited to bring up some of her favorite memories and tries to recreate some of her favorite characters that she liked to do.  Only the gang has no idea what she is talking about and asks, “What is that?  What are you doing?  Are you just doing a bad accent?”  When Dee tries to remind them about some of the characters, they hilariously ask, “You’ve created characters?”  Poor Dee.  She puts her best effort forward to bring back Crazy Patty, but she ends up falling and hurting herself, which leads to the gang deciding to remember all the times that Dee got hurt, which gives us some more laugh out loud moments from the earlier seasons.

3

“Let’s remember all the classic times.”

Some of my absolute favorite moments on the show come up during the “classic times,” as we get to witness Charlie hilariously ask Santa all over again if he “f*cked his mom.”  Classic Charlie.  We also get to witness “Wild Card bitches,” the high school reunion dance number, and Dennis explaining to Mac “because of the implication,” which is one of my all time favorite laugh out loud moments from “The Gang Buys a Boat.”  Seriously check that episode out now if you haven’t yet.

2

“That was one of the best memories of all time.”

The gang hilariously recreates a moment from Seinfeld and is actually pretty spot on with their impression of it.  Only they start to think that it is one of their own memories.  Dennis tells them that it wasn’t them and points out that it took place during the 90’s and asks them who all those people were laughing in the background.  The gang is still not entirely sure about this until Dennis says, “You guys are remembering an episode of Seinfeld and they realize that “memories are tricky.”

1

“Now you’re infecting my memory with your memory.”

After Dennis brings up the time that he left Paddy’s Pub, he gets agitated when the memory starts changing, as everyone thinks that they turned off the lights to the bar and then Frank hilariously points out that he doesn’t even remember Dennis leaving.  Dennis tells them that they are infecting his memory with their own memories and that distorting facts can change history, which leads to a discussion about potentially altering reality.  In this new reality, Frank has hair and Charlie has a kid with the waitress, as he brings us into this new reality by looking in on himself like the Ghost of Christmas Past, which is funny on its own.  At the end of the episode, the phones are updated and it seems like we are back to normal, only Charlie looks through the door of the bar one last time, suggesting that perhaps we are not.  Either way, I was initially disappointed to see that they were going to do a clip show until the episode actually branched out into something funny on its own, reminding us why we all love this series so much.  Stay tuned!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 6: “The Gang Solves the Bathroom Problem”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 6 last night, I realized that the gang has a solution for pretty much everything and they will ensure they thoroughly cover all angles to get it right.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Gang Solves the Bathroom Problem,” the gang is excited to go to a Jimmy Buffett concert, but they have to handle an important debate before they can get back to “island time.”  Meanwhile, Charlie shows off his surprising fashion skills, Frank proves that screams are better than music, and poor Dee is ignored once again.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 6 are:

5

“Were you in the women’s bathroom?”

The gang is ready to go to the Jimmy Buffett concert, but they have to hit pause when Dee asks Mac why he was in the women’s bathroom.  Mac explains that he feels more comfortable in there because he is gay and is ready to initiate a thorough debate if needed.  Before we get there, Mac overacts when Dee begins to question him and tries to strangle her, yelling out, “Maybe I’ll choke you out!”  Poor Dee.  Mac is the first one to take the floor on the argument and explains that, “A, we both like dudes and B, we both find women’s bodies disgusting so no hanky panky.”  Seems like it is case closed, but Dee gets up and reminds everyone that “A, not all women like dudes and B, I find you disgusting.”  And so our debate begins.

4

“The dress ties the whole look together.”

After Mac mistakes Dee for being in the stall next to him with “pink heels,” Dee says that she doesn’t even own a pair.  Charlie steps up and says that he can explain it all.  We learn that Charlie has also been using the women’s bathroom and he wears a pair of pink heels so he doesn’t look suspicious.  Only Mac peeks over the top of the stall and discovers that Charlie is also wearing a wig and a dress to match.  Charlie tries to explain that he has been doing this since he was little and that “it’s not that weird.”  The gang responds with “it’s so weird,” but Charlie is not about to abandon his bathroom ensemble just yet.

3

“It’s mostly dicks.”

The gang makes the decision to take away gender from the bathrooms and they decide to make clear signs to indicate this.  This becomes very confusing, as the initial sign has Charlie thinking that there is a “starfish throwing a rock,” which we learn is actually a baby.  Mac thinks he will have better luck and ends up spending several hours on the laptop watching porn and comes up with a sign mostly full of dicks.  Frank then tries to take a stab at it and brings religion into it.  Dee suggests that they just put up toilet signs and decides she is going to use the men’s former bathroom, but suddenly the men don’t want her in there either.  Dee says, “You can’t take away my right to choose,” and the debate goes off topic as Dennis predicted.

2

“Have you ever read the constitution?”

The gang tries out designating one bathroom for #1 and the other for #2, but the gang thinks this might be a problem.  They try using scented candles in #2 and Frank suggests using the sound of screams rather than music for background noise.  Dennis and Charlie are not really sure about this, but when they enter the bathroom and hear the screaming, they think that they might be on to something.  This part had me crying from laughing so hard.  It reminded me of what you hear when you go through a haunted house, but somehow it worked.  We also quickly discover that Frank keeps a gun with him at all times in the bathroom and the constitution is brought up once again, which leads to everyone actually taking a moment to start reading it.  You can’t say that It’s Always Sunny hasn’t taught you anything.

1

“In there we’re all the same…”

After much debate, the gang finally realizes that they are all the same in the bathroom and Dee tries to shed some light on everything and has an insightful thought when she suggests, “Why don’t we focus on treating other people the way we want to be treated?”  I’m with you Dee!  Charlie seems like he is really thinking it over, but then says, “Dee, we were just talking” and Mac hilariously adds in, “Yea shut the f*ck up!”  Poor Dee!  Well at least the gang will get to enjoy the Jimmy Buffett concert after all.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 5: “I Am A Golden Goddess!”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 5 last night, I realized that there is a time and place for nostalgia.  Remember when you used to ride around on a bike with your friends without a care in the world?  Sounds nice, right?  Except when history starts to repeat itself and you wind up remembering why you stopped riding a bike in the first place.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Gang Gets New Wheels,” Dennis is shocked to find his old Range Rover completely destroyed in the alley and decides that it is time to get some new wheels.  Meanwhile, Mac and Charlie also try out some new wheels of their own when they take their new bikes out for a spin, but quickly get into trouble.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 5 are:

5

“Your Driver’s License is expired.”

Dennis is very unhappy when he discovers that his beloved Range Rover has been completely destroyed in his absence.  Dennis takes this opportunity to buy a new one and expects Frank to handle the “financing.”  Frank hands Dennis about four hundred dollars in change, which is the leftover value from his old vehicle and Dennis realizes that he may need to put his new Range Rover on hold.  Frank thinks that this might be the right time for him to purchase the vehicle for himself, but hits a snag when he is told that his license is expired.  When he asks since when, the salesman hilariously says, “1984” and we get to see a sweet picture of Frank when he was younger.  Oh well it looks like Frank is off to Driver’s Ed.

4

“Then why don’t you Mac?”

Mac and Charlie are very excited to try out their new bikes and decide to hit the streets.  Before they know it, they are stopped by a gang of kids and they say that Charlie is Mac’s boyfriend.  Mac immediately defends himself and admits that he is gay, but that he can do way better than Charlie and Charlie hilariously asks him, “Then why don’t you?”  Mac and Charlie quickly begin to remember why they stopped riding bikes in the first place after they were stolen by their old childhood nemesis, Shawn DeMont, and history is about to repeat itself.

3

“I am a Golden Goddess!”

Since Frank is unable to drive until he gets his license reinstated, he agrees to let Dee use the new 2018 Range Rover as long as she drives him where he needs to go.  Seems like a reasonable deal to me.  Dee begins to understand why Dennis loves the Range Rover so much, as she compares it to being on a throne and looking down on minions, which is very powerful indeed.  Dee meets a couple of new socialite friends and is invited out to lunch with them, but snubs Dennis when he tries to tag along and reminds him that he doesn’t have a Range Rover.  The power begins to quickly go to Dee’s head and she starts to act surprisingly a lot like Dennis, as her inner rage is almost boiling at this point, as she practically takes everyone’s head off when she speaks to them.  Dee later decides that she is going to outdo her new friend by sleeping with her younger boyfriend, but accidentally sleeps with her son instead, who happens to also be Frank’s new Driver’s Ed buddy.  Dee is horrified by her actions, but I completely blame the Range Rover.

2

“There’s no coming back from that.”

As Mac and Charlie begin to remember what happened when Shawn DeMont stole their bike, they recall him saying, “What are you gonna do about it?” and explain that it really was the perfect line and that there was no coming back from it.  Flash forward to present day and the gang of kids is led by Shawn DeMont’s son.  After his son steals a bike from Mac and Charlie, they try to explain the situation to Shawn, who initially seems reasonable and says he will ask them about it.  He then turns to Mac and Charlie and says that he didn’t steal it because he said he didn’t and then brings the classic line back by asking them, “What are you gonna do about it?”  Later on, Mac and Charlie approach the gang of kids and decide to beat them senseless to get back some of their dignity, but things take a dark turn and Charlie later comments that he thinks he may have killed a kid.  I think it’s safe to say that Mac and Charlie will not be riding bikes anytime soon.

1

“All is well.”

While Dee takes a turn for the worst when she drives around the Range Rover, Dennis finds himself surprisingly relaxed and slightly off his game when he begins driving a more economical hybrid car.  After being mistaken for an Uber, Dennis also meets some new friends and decides that he can “enjoy economy activities” since he has an economical vehicle.  Dennis quickly begins to lose his mojo; however, and even has a very difficult time striking up a conversation with the only girl at his friend’s house, revealing that his overbearing personality may have been directly tied to him driving a Range Rover.  Fear not, the Dennis we know and love is not gone forever.  He discovers that his new friend is selling an old Range Rover and he happily purchases it from him and his personality is back and better than ever when he says, “Be gone from me now” once the transaction is complete.  Dennis begins jamming out to an It’s Always Sunny favorite, “Never Gonna Give You Up,” by Rick Astley, which you can listen to here!  “All is well” again, as he picks up each one of his friends and reassures them that everything is going to be all right now.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 4: “Time’s Up for the Gang”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 4 last night, I realized that you should never cross Dennis Reynolds.  I mean like at all.  He will go above and beyond to ensure that you listen to him.  I’m not too sure the rest of the gang is too concerned with this, however.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Time’s Up for the Gang,” the gang is required to attend a sexual harassment seminar after Paddy’s Pub is put on an unsafe bar for women list.  I feel like Paddy’s Pub and The Alibi from Shameless should join forces, especially since they both seem to be on the same page this week.  No one is particularly excited about attending the seminar except for Dee, who shows up ready to get her party on, but is in for a rude awakening about her own behavior as well.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 4 are:

“How many points do we need?”

At the beginning of the seminar, Mac is determined to win and wants to know how many points they need to do so.  The lady running the seminar politely explains that there are no points and they merely need to complete the actual seminar and then they can be removed from the list.  Seems simple enough, right?  Well not for Mac.  Mac continues to talk about the importance of points and further explains, “That’s how the Eagles won the Super bowl.”  The rest of the gang asks him what that has to do with anything, but it seems like they might be better off just agreeing with him at this point.

“Nice try you dumb bitch.”

Dennis is fully participating in the seminar, but Dee wants to jump on board as well, especially since she is the only woman there representing Paddy’s Pub.  Dee asks the woman running the seminar if being called a bird is considered sexual harassment.  The lady is confused by this and tells her no, but agrees that it is not very nice.  Dennis whispers under his breath, “nice try you dumb bitch,” determined to be the top contributor at the seminar.  Watch out Dee!

“You don’t just throw around the R word.”

As the seminar continues, the topic of molestation comes up and the lady informs them that a woman can sexually molest or harass a man as well.  Charlie innocently asks if that’s what happened with him and Dee, revealing for the first time to rest of the gang that he had sex with Dee, which is hilarious enough on its own.  I was wondering when this was going to be revealed.  To make matters worse, Dee tries to explain that it was consensual, but then starts to have second thoughts herself about her past actions.  Either way, Dee is not about to accept throwing the “R word” into the mix and tries to defend herself as much as possible.  I’m not sure Dee is going to win this argument; however, especially since the gang knows about her past affair with Charlie now.

“I’m here for revenge.”

During the seminar, Dee and Mac are asked to perform a role play in front of the rest of the group.  The lady running the seminar explains it to them, but Dee is very concerned about her character’s motivation.  The lady tries to keep them on track, but Dee ultimately decides on revenge.  When she approaches Mac, he lifts her up into the air by her crotch and the lady running the seminar is absolutely horrified, asking Dee if she is all right.  Dee is amazed by how high Mac got her in the air and says she feels like “Thumbelina.”  After seeing how distraught the lady is, Dee hilariously asks, “Is that sexual harassment?” and the lady dryly replies, “No, that is sexual assault.”  It looks like Dee and Mac still have a lot to learn, but at least they nailed their characters during the role play.

“But Dennis…”

Later on, Dennis decides to give his own sort of presentation at the seminar and is surprisingly fully prepared, but I guess we should not expect anything less from Dennis Reynolds.  Dennis starts each transition with “But Dennis…” and fills in the blank, targeting his friends and adding in “But Dennis…I’m rich, I’m gay, I’m a hopeless romantic, I’m a woman.”  He is speaking specifically to Frank, Mac, Charlie, and Dee and goes even further with it, berating each one of his friends until he gets his point across.  Dennis then further reveals that he created the unsafe list and is responsible for the seminar to the surprise of everyone.  Dennis wanted to ensure that everyone would listen to him and clean up their act.  While this initially seems harmless enough, Dennis further explains it is because he doesn’t want the rest of the gang to drag him down with them, keeping Dennis Reynolds as the number one priority.  I’d like to say mission accomplished Dennis, but I’m not sure the rest of the gang really followed you.  Either way, good effort?  Stay tuned!

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!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.
