Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 4: “The Gang Chokes”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 4, we learned that sometimes it may seem like living life on the edge is worth it, but has the gang gone too far here chasing the rush?  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 Chokes,” the gang goes out to dinner, but a quiet night quickly turns deadly, as a familiar hero shows up to save the day.  My top 5 moments from the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 4 are:


“Oh god…you people!”

Our favorite waiter from Guigino’s is back at a different restaurant and surprisingly the gang actually remembers him this time.  Now they claim that they can’t get away from him, which was beyond hysterical, bringing us some nostalgia from one of my favorite episodes of all time:  “The Gang Dines Out.”  I love how Mac even wears the exact same outfit with his slicked hair, which makes you wonder if he always wears this when they go out.


“I think he’s choking.”

Everything quickly gets out of hand when Frank starts choking; only the gang decides to all stare at him.  No one moves and it’s up to the waiter to save Frank’s life, while the gang watches with fascination.  Poor Frank!


“It blew my mind!”

After the incident, it clearly gets the gang thinking. Charlie shows up with an empty box of pizza at Mac and Dennis’s apartment, which is a nice gesture!  It’s after midnight and Dennis doesn’t want to hear about it, but Dee shows up too, claiming that she is now obsessed with getting a rush from nearly dying.  Dennis just wants to go to bed and Dee hilariously asks him if he’s 40 and he reminds her that they are the same age.  No matter what age they are, the laughs keep coming!


“What the hell are you doing in my home?”

Our favorite waiter gets some more screen time when Frank decides to break into his home, explaining that “it’s you and me against the world.”  Frank is grateful that the waiter saved his life and now he wants to spend some quality time together, but he has some interesting and creative ideas when it comes to getting rid of the waiter’s sick mother.  Frank taps into the waiter’s dream of going back to pilot school and it looks like this may be the start of a weird friendship, but things quickly go south for these two.


“I’ll always save you from now on!”

Mac reveals that he just wants Dennis to depend on him, as we learn that he has been poisoning him with an interesting shake mixed with pizza and soda.  Dee tells Mac that they will need to poison Dennis for real so that they can save his life, but they decide to try and poison Frank so they can make things right.

The plan doesn’t work out so well; however, as Dee ends up taking the poison herself.  The waiter is forced to save her life now as well and Dee wakes up explaining that it was “just lights out” and she no longer wants to chase the rush.

This was the first episode of season 14 that really had me laughing out loud.  I loved that the episode started off with some fun nostalgia, but then branched off into something completely different.  It’s been a while since I’ve laughed out loud at several parts and I’m hoping this trend continues!  Stay tuned!
