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:

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 13 episode 1 Season Premiere: “The Gang Makes Paddy’s Great Again”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  The wait is finally over and it’s time to laugh out loud with Charlie, Mac, Dee, Frank, and Cindy?  More to come on that!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 1 last night, I was introduced to a new Patty’s Pub that I was not familiar with.  Everything seemed to be somewhat normal until I realized that someone was missing.  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 Makes Paddy’s Great Again,” the gang is working with Cindy, played by Mindy Kaling, to change the image and perception of their bar to attract more customers.  Meanwhile, Mac has put his best effort forward to change his body image again and surprises the gang with an eerie new toy that has something oddly familiar about it.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 13 episode 1 are:

5

“The unveiling of what?”

As the gang decides to come up with a plan to help improve Paddy’s image, Mac is convinced that he has the solution right in front of them…or right under his duster.  Mac shows off his new and extremely muscular physique, suggesting that this could be a key component to the plan.  The gang is hilariously underwhelmed by this, explaining that “he’s fat, he’s skinny, he’s muscular.”  They write it off as a cry for attention, trying to move forward with the task at hand, but Mac continues to try and work his new physique into the plan for the rest of the episode.

4

“Is that a sex doll?”

Mac is beyond excited to show the gang what he bought and at this point, I was more focused on the fact that Glenn Howerton’s name was left off the main credits.  While I was confused at Dennis’s absence initially, I was in for a shocking surprise when Mac revealed a sex doll with a striking image to Dennis.  The gang is initially appalled by this, realizing that Mac is probably banging it the moment they leave the room.  While Mac tries to convince them that his Dennis doll is there for “companionship,” his friends are not believing this for one second.

“The doll talks to you now…”

As if the sex doll wasn’t creepy enough, Mac begins to talk to it, as if he could hear Dennis speaking to him.  While the gang initially thinks this is crazy, Charlie and Frank begin to hear it too and even Dee says, “It called me a bird.”  Later in the episode, the gang tries to carry out Cindy’s plan to improve Paddy’s pub and everything initially seems to be going well until they continue to hear Dennis’s voice, judging them and making them feel inferior.

“You want me to talk to the doll?”

During the episode, the waitress continues to call Charlie over and over again and he is getting annoyed by her neediness, which is hilarious on its own.  Charlie realizes that the perfect solution is right in front of him and brings over the Dennis doll to keep the waitress company.  As soon as she begins complaining about something, he cuts her off and reminds her “that’s what the doll is for.”  Later in the episode, Charlie walks in on the waitress in bed with the Dennis doll and he is shocked.  While the waitress tries to explain that’s what it’s made for, Charlie tells her that she is cheating.  The waitress breaks up with Charlie and Charlie begins hilariously punching the Dennis doll in the face because “Dennis is a bastard man” of course.

1

“You can go now.”

At the end of the episode, the real Dennis is back, sitting right next to the Dennis doll at Paddy’s Pub.  Hooray!  The gang is beyond excited to see him, but Cindy explains that he is not needed anymore.  Unfortunately for Cindy, the gang votes her out, ready to accept Dennis back into their lives.  Dennis’s harsh judgment returns too, as he tells Dee to “shut up bird” and informs Mac that he is looking fat, but we are sure happy to have him back.  Stay tuned!
