    DEFINITELY made it into my top 10! The presence of this episode made us all connect even more with this wonderful series. I love how this was the first time we see the trio of idiots all helping each other to get what they want. Rob, Charlie, and Glenn are the perfect trio of idiots in my perspective because they solve problems in their own nontraditional way others would not solve them at all. Three grown men acting as little kids is what you will see here and this is one of ,if not, the best attraction this show offers. It's a true friendship we see on screen. That's why the chemistry can never be made from anyone else. That is why it is in my Top 10.moreless
  • Part of the gangs bar is owned by a new owner next door under the property lines and the gang goes jihad on the owner next door. (spoilers in review).

    This episode was hilarious as it taught us the proper way (or did it) on how to say Jew and showed us that Mac and Dennis are not as up to date on current affairs as they would like us to believe. The new owner of the restaurant next door has moved to the US from Israel and informed the gang that he owns part of their bar under old property lines.

    Mac, Dennis, and Charlie meet with a lawyer, who informs them that there is no "legal" action the gang can take so they decide to take actions into their own hands by using jevunile techniques to scare the new owner while not trying to be anti-semitic. Finally the last straw is drawn when they are fenced in and the make a muslim scare tape but decide not to use it after the realize just how offensive it is but Charlie can't let his directing skills go to waste. Having problems with the building, the Jewish owner sells it to Dennis and Dee's father because he wants to be part of the gang. Finally taking charlie's advice of using a flaming bag of poop, the gang burns down the building because of a gas leak which is one of the reasons the new owner decided to sell the place.moreless

    This episode wasn't as exciting as the premiere but it did come together quite nicely, and some one liners had me in stitches as usual. So sit back and relax, because you're watching a great episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. From the Dennis using the word Jew out of context, to the jihad videos, it was just absolutely hysterical. My favorite scene would definitely have to be when it all comes together though. The property having a gas leak and the gang not knowing about it.

    So they end up blowing up the entire building, just a really great tie in. We also get to see Dee & Dennis' mom, she was a great addition to the episode, and so was Danny Devito, I'm excited to see him as a regular for season 2, now that he owns the bar. Great episode.moreless

    • The gang was singing a capella to the song, "More Than Words" by the band, Extreme when Frank enters the bar with the contractor. This song can be found on Extreme's album, Extreme II: Pornograffitti.

    • The music playing faintly in the background during the scene where Frank enters his house to find his wife with Ari Frenkel was Flower Duet by Léo Delibes.
