  • Every night you come into my room and pin me down

    I have to admit that I was growing less fond of It's Always Sunny in Philly before this episode. However, a great effort by the team here has made me think twice. The songs were great by everyone, the cast has gelled together well which includes Danny DeVito aswell, who I haven't really liked in this show. Actually this episode may have done better since it actually had less of him in it.



    Anyway great songs, and good stories. The jokes were decent, and even the side story of Dee dating Kevin (well it became the side story) was a good one. Definitely a better episode in the series.moreless
  • Day Man should be released as a song! Genius! =)

    9.8
    This is one of my favourite It's Always Sunny episodes EVER! The Day Man song Charlie and Dennis creates is just absolute genius! if they released that song, i can guarantee it would sell! =)



    I am still not 100% sure bout Danny DeVito though! still unsure if he fits within the show (No pun on his height there), just sometimes he just doesnt not need to be in the show, half of the stuff he does or says i don't find really as funny as if Charlie, Dennis or Mac done or said it! I am not the only person who thinks this either, some of my friends think the same, and probably some of you aswell, i know he is a big name, ad has brought the show more into the lime-light because of the big name actor, but apart from that, he has brought nothing new to the show for me, i think it was fine where it was before Frank came into it, in the background, still hilariously funny, but in the background, under the radar as they say, people still watched it and talked about it, but new people watched it from word of mouth from friends and so forth if that makes sense! probably doesnt but did in my head when i was thinking about it lol =)moreless
  • I loved this episode!

    9.4
    This episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was hilarious!! I loved it and can't get Day Man out of my head! Haha.. I haven't laughed this much at a tv show in a while. It was great! Charlie has a pretty good voice by the way..



    The first few episodes of this season I didn't find incredibly funny, like I heard the show was. But this episode definately was. This is what It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia needed to pick it back up. I can't wait to see seasons 1 and 2 on dvd now!



    This episode was pretty much amazing!moreless
  • Dayman! Fighter of the Nightman!!!! Champion of the Sun!

    9.9
    This show never lets me down. I also love how Dennis has become so crazy and evil this season. I had slight slight trouble warming up to Danny Devito in Season 2, but he's one of the family in Season 3. I love every season though for different reasons. Electric Dream Machine is my favorite obviously, but there are so many great parts of this episode really. Dayman! Fighter of the Nightman!!!! Champion of the Sun! I can't believe Season 3 is over already. Is it? I can't tell. Why did they have to run 2 episodes a week for 5 weeks? I would have preffered 1 episode per week for 10 weeks. Eh...whatever.moreless

    • Frank: Well, can I at least pick the name of the band?
      Mac: What do you got?
      Frank: The Pecan Sandies.
      Mac: Isn't that a cookie?
      Frank: Yeah. It's a cookie, but it's got another meaning.
      Mac: What's the other meaning?
      Frank: What?
      Mac: Other than a cookie, what's the other meaning?
      Frank: It's a, you know, it's a sexual meaning.
      Mac: No, we are not the Pecan Sandies, all right? We are Chemical Toilet. Because chicks want guys that wear tight pants and tattered clothing and spit blood -- not guys dress like waiters who name themselves after desserts.

    • Charlie: Glue is for huffing, dude.

    • (Charlie's Night Man Song)
      Charlie:

      Night Man, sneaky and mean
      Spider inside my dreams, I think I love you
      You make me want to cry, you make me want to die
      I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you Night Man
      Every night you come into my room and pin me down with your strong arms
      And pin me down and I try to fight you
      You come inside me and fill me up and I become the Night Man

      It's just two men sharing the night
      It might seem wrong, but it's just right
      It's just two men sharing each other
      It's just two men like lovin' brothers
      One on top, and one on bottom
      One inside, and one is out
      One is screaming he's so happy and the other's screaming a passionate shout
      It's the Night Man
      The feeling so wrong and right man, the feeling so wrong and right man
      I can't fight you man when you come inside me and pin me down with your strong hands and I become the Night... the passionate, passionate Night Man

      They took you Night Man and you don't belong to them. They left me in a world of darkness without your sexy hands. And I miss you, Night Man, so bad.

    • (Electric Dream Machine's Day Man Song)
      Dennis & Charlie:

      Day Man
      Ah-ah-ah
      Fighter of the Night Man
      Ah-ah-ah
      Champion of the sun
      Ah-ah-ah
      You're a master of karate and friendship for everyone.

    • Mac: I mean the first half of that song was kind of cool, but what's with the second half?
      Charlie: It's about the Night Man, like you know, like filling me up and I become him -- I become the spirit of the Night Man.
      Mac: But it sounds like a song where a man breaks into your house and rapes you.

    • Charlie: No, I'm Holland Oates. You're like, Peter Gabriel.
      Mac: Hall & Oates is two separate people.
      Charlie: No, Holland is his first name and Oates is his last name.

    • Mac: Here's the song.
      Dennis: What the hell is this, a page from a coloring book?
      Mac: It's a song that Charlie wrote. It's called "Night Man." Skip all the raping parts and get on stage.

    • Dennis: Man, that's retard strength if I ever seen it, you know what I mean?

    • Dee: It's my brother's fault, though. You're not going to believe this. He tried to convince me that you were retarded, what?
      Lil' Kev: No, what.
      Dee: I know.
      Lil' Kev: That's bananas, girl.
      Dee: You're not retarded, are you?
