Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 10 season finale: “Mac Finds His Pride”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 10 season finale, Mac presented us with a performance that was profound and moving.  While I’m not sure his dad really got it, he sure did captivate the rest of the audience.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “Mac Finds His Pride,” Frank’s mission is to get Mac to dance on the Paddy’s Pub float in the pride parade, but Mac is not too sure he wants to participate, as he starts to realize that he would rather share the truth with his father instead.  Only we know that Mac’s dad is not the friendliest guy in the world.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 10 season finale are:

5

“What year is it in your head?”

In the beginning of the episode, Frank is extremely motivated to play his part and get Mac to perform on the Paddy’s Pub float in the pride parade.  Mac is not really on board with this however; as he is still not sure on his own identity as a gay man.  Frank tries to make Mac comfortable, but fails miserably as he first takes him to some kind of S&M club and then tries out “Pookie’s,” which is a club for drag queens.  Mac doesn’t think he quite fits in at either place and hilariously asks Frank what year he thinks it is in his head, as Frank is not really sure where to take Mac next to find his pride.  I guess it’s the thought that counts?

4

“So the only thing that’s missing is Mac…”

While the episode is mostly centered on Mac and Frank, we do get to briefly see Dee and Charlie, who are working very hard on their Paddy’s Pub float, which is actually out of this world and even features a bar on top.  Nice work guys!  We start to realize that the gang may have an ulterior motive, as they admit to wanting to attract some more customers to the bar and Mac could be the key, but Frank is still not able to follow through with his one and only job.

3

“There’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you…”

After Frank’s failed attempts to help Mac find his identity, Mac comes to the conclusion that he wants to share everything with his father.  Mac’s father, Luther, is always hilarious, as he has really mastered the cold-blooded killer vibe.  When Mac asks him how he is doing, he calmly talks about his problems with his cell mate by explaining, “I cut out his tongue with a rusty pair of pliers and fed it to the maggots.”  Mac is not really sure what to say to this and just simply replies with, “Cool.”  I’m not sure I would know how to react either.  After Mac tries to start telling his dad about his complicated dream about being gay, Luther thinks that Mac has gotten a girl pregnant and is thrilled to be a grandfather.  Only it better be a son or else Mac will need to start over.  Mac is always seeking his father’s approval and starts to think that perhaps he does need to get a girl pregnant, but Frank tries to keep him on track.  After all, he doesn’t want him to “go back in the closet.”

2

“He looks like a monster.”

After Frank explains that he thinks Mac may be going “back in the closet,” Dee and Charlie need to find a replacement for him on the float.  Cricket shows up dressed in some kind of biker leather combo that shows off his many scars, but I’m not sure this will attract the right clientele, as Charlie hilariously comments, “He looks like a monster.”  Well at least he is willing to participate for the loose change in Dee’s pocket.

1

“I get it.”

Frank arranges for Mac to put on a performance for his father and the other inmates, realizing that Mac needs to finally tell his dad the truth.  Mac actually brings his dream to life and puts on a beautiful and heart wrenching dance performance in the rain with his female partner, who literally came out of nowhere.  Either way, she was extremely talented.  While Mac’s father gets up and leaves, all of the other inmates are mesmerized by Mac’s movements and Frank finally understands when he says, “I get it.”  It looks like Mac has finally found his identity and pride while showcasing his incredible dance skills as well.  I guess that’s the end of the new season, but I’m hoping for the gang to return soon, especially since we know that the series has been renewed through Season 14.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 9: “The Gang Wins the Big Game”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 9, the cliffhanger from last week was finally resolved, as we got to find out what happened with the rest of the gang when they attended last year’s Super Bowl.  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 Wins the Big Game,” Mac thinks that everyone should take it easy at the game, but he quickly starts to realize that they may need a few superstitions to help out the Eagles after all.  Meanwhile, we finally get to learn if Charlie made it back into the trap in time.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 9 are:

5

“Every single thing we do turns to shit.”

After it is revealed that Cricket is the one who stole Charlie’s Green Man suit, the gang decides against turning around to go get Charlie.  After all, they have a game to get to.  Only different obstacles are thrown their way as well.  Dee clearly has some form of pink eye developing even though she won’t admit it, Ben’s jean shorts get grease on them, and the bus is no longer an option.  Mac begins to panic, but a plane actually gets them to the game safely.  Mac thinks that everyone should just stay in the box at the game, worried about the rest of the gang causing a commotion, but not everyone is on board with this.

4

“I’m in too deep.”

Mac is super excited that Rex was able to make the game, who has been a recurring character on It’s Always Sunny, infamous for his abs of steel.  Rex has been quite busy selling the Invigaron Berries, which is a pyramid scheme Dee got involved with in the episode, “Mac and Dennis Buy a Timeshare.”  Mac keeps suggesting that Rex take his shirt off for obvious reasons, but Rex seems shy about this, explaining that it is too cold.  Later on, Rex reveals that he has lost his abs of steel and now has a rather large gut because he has been eating way too many of the berries.  Seriously stay away from those pyramid schemes.

3

“Oh my God…how did I move all the way to Minnesota and I’m still waiting on you people?”

Our favorite waiter from Guigino’s is back, as he crosses paths with the gang when he is assigned to their box at the Super Bowl.  Fans will remember that the waiter made a comment to Dee about previously waiting on them at the Super Bowl during the episode, “The Gang Beats Boggs:  Ladies Reboot.”  Of course the gang does not remember the waiter and he is done trying at this point.  Frank hilariously ties his shoelaces together, causing him to fall, throwing it back to one of my all time favorite episodes, “The Gang Dines Out.”  It’s always nice to see the waiter and I’m wondering if we will finally get to know his real name one of these days.

2

“We can’t leave this bathroom!”

Mac is clearly very nervous about the Eagles wining and the Waitress doesn’t help matters by constantly cheering for Tom Brady.  After Dee’s pink eye towel gets magically brought out to Brady, Mac realizes that he has stumbled upon something even more powerful.  Frank has revealed that he has a kidney stone and has to constantly pee as a result.  A light bulb goes off in Mac’s head when he says, “Every time Frank goes to the bathroom, the Eagles score.”  Frank gets motivated and Mac realizes that they cannot leave this bathroom because they owe it to their team.  Will this superstition be enough to win the game?

1

“I got one thing left to do.”

The game is extremely close and coming to the end and Frank is all out of pee.  Mac suddenly realizes that he needs to check in with Charlie to ensure that he has completed his “color rituals.”  Charlie explains, “I got one thing left to do” and courageously heads back to his bear trap with perfect timing, as the Eagles win the Super Bowl.  The gang is extremely excited and Charlie begins to laugh victoriously and then starts hysterically crying when the pain begins to set back in.  It was all worth it; however, as the gang celebrates their team winning the Super Bowl.  Go team!  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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 8: “Charlie’s Home Alone”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 8, I was super excited to finally get a Charlie centric episode.  While I’m not sure that it kept up with “Charlie Rules the World” or “Charlie Work,” it at least gave Charlie some much needed screen time.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “Charlie’s Home Alone,” Charlie begins freaking out when he cannot find his beloved Green Man suit, explaining that it is part of his “color rituals” that are necessary for the Eagles to win the Super Bowl.  After an impostor wearing the suit heads off with the gang, Charlie realizes that he “made his friends disappear.”  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 8 are:

5

“How is salmonella the only word you spelled correctly?”

Charlie has pretty much everything covered in order for the gang to go see the Super Bowl, only he cannot find his Green Man suit.  Charlie even takes time to put a sign up at the bar, explaining that they are closed for “salmonella” because of the Super Bowl, only every single word is spelled wrong except for “salmonella,” which surprises Dee.  Charlie doesn’t have time to argue with Dee over the sign and focuses all of his attention on finding the Green Man suit, only someone takes off with the gang wearing it, leaving Charlie alone at the bar.  Who is wearing the suit?  I’m guessing Cricket, but we’ll have to wait until next week to find out.

4

“I made my friends disappear.”

After wishing that his friends would all just go away, they actually do and Charlie is shocked that he was able to make this happen, signaling an immediate throwback to the classic film, Home Alone Charlie takes this even further as “Rockin Around The Christmas Tree” begins playing and he runs around, loving the fact that he can do whatever he wants.  Charlie finds a pair of Dee’s old panties and hilariously says, “Dee…Woof” and even tries out some shaving cream of his very own, patting his face and screaming and then saying out loud, “Why am I screaming?  This doesn’t hurt at all.” 

3

“This is my bar and I have to defend it.”

After two patrons try to get into the bar, Charlie realizes that he will need to defend the bar, just like Kevin from Home Alone.  Charlie assumes that they are burglars and starts setting up traps all over the bar and even lays out his battle plan or “Batall Plan.”  It seems like Charlie has everything worked out, until he gets caught in his own bear trap.  Poor Charlie.

2

“You’re going to lose the game because of me.”

Charlie listens to the crowd outside to determine if the Eagles are winning or losing and realizes that he must complete his “color rituals” in order for them to succeed.  Charlie’s color rituals consist of eating brown, wearing green, and drinking yellow.  Seems simple enough, right?  Only poor Charlie has been badly injured from the bear trap and is clearly not thinking straight at this point.  After spotting a rat, Charlie decides to eat it because it was brown and then immediately regrets this decision when he begins puking right on cue.  However, when he hears the fans cheering outside the bar, Charlie quickly realizes that the “color rituals” must be working.  He is determined to find something green to wear and spots the cans of green paint he set up.  Charlie hilariously ends up knocking himself out with the paint can, but the green paint does get on him so I guess this counts?  After Charlie wakes up, he courageously tries to make it to the beer so he can drink something yellow, but to no avail.  Charlie decides to drink his own urine, which is beyond disgusting, but he takes one for the team.

1

“Finish your color rituals.”

Now that Charlie has successfully finished his “color rituals,” he just needs to make it to the television and turn on the game.  Charlie’s leg is killing him at this point and he even begins hallucinating and seeing football players standing in front of him, trying to motivate him and cheer him on.  Charlie realizes that he can actually release himself from his own trap by pressing the button on the bottom, which makes this whole ordeal seem silly now.  Charlie successfully turns on the TV, but the football players tell him he has to now get back in the trap.  You know because “everything fans do has a direct impact on the outcome.”  Will Charlie be able to succeed?  We’ll have to wait to find out, as “to be continued” came up on the screen.  While the episode started out with promise, it soon became something outrageous, but that is what Charlie does best.  Either way, it’s good to see Charlie have his moment in the spotlight.  Stay tuned!

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!

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 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!

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 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:

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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:

5

“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!
