  • Oh boy, this episode paid off in the end.

    9.0
    First watching this episode, I thought that Frank and Artermis' plot, as well as Dee's plot to ruin the Waitress' wedding were pointless and strange.. but the way that every single plot in this episode ended up being resolved and tying together (well, except for Frank's stupid plot). And it wasn't like in the Mortgage Crisis episode, where there were things left hanging.



    Dee discovers that the Waitress is getting married to one of her ex-boyfriends, and in a act of jealousy, attempts to split them apart by inviting him to a bacholerette party with Mac and Charlie's mom, as well as a frisky Frank and Artemis.. meanwhile, the gang worries Charlie's going to murder everybody when he finds out about the Waitress' marriage, so they try to set him up with a new woman, which sets up some of the best quotes, as well as some of the best moments. Watching Charlie attempt to fight his way through a date with a lawyer was hilarious, whether it was him sweating through his shirt, or his request for "milksteak and raw jellybeans."



    The episode, for me, started off one way (a little subpar) and ended up being a big surprise. A very pleasant surprise. After last week's episode, which was a little weaker than the first three episodes this season, it seems It's Always Sunny is one its way to one of its best seasons yet.moreless
  • Classic episode.

    I was uncontrollably laughing throughout this episode, it was literally one of 'Sunny's' best episodes ever. Charlie's date, the focus of the episode, was just absolutely uncomfortable, ridiculous and hilarious. Milk steak + raw jellybeans= WIN...Dee's plotline was good as well, while Frank's was also pretty funny, but continued to show his descent into becoming increasingly more troll-like and disgusting (good or bad?). Nonetheless, the Charlie, Mac, & Dennis plotline was so incredibly funny it oveshadowed anything wrong with the episode. I felt sick from laughing. So many great things about this episode, I don't want to spoil it...Just watch and enjoy.moreless

    • (Jackie storms out of the restaurant after Charlie tries to grope her)
      Dennis: You're grabbing her breasts? What are you doing?!

    • Frank: Deandra, you got any bacon bits? We like to put them in Artemis's hair, and they rain down on me when we bang.

      Frank: She's my booty call!

    • Dee: I don't know, what do you think, it's kinda of doing nothing for my hip area and making a mess of my boobs. You know what, why don't you grab five more.

    • Charlie: Do, uh, do wasps make honey?
      Dennis: No, wasps do not make honey.

    • Charlie: My good man, uh, now I'm gonna want the milk steak boiled over hard.

      Charlie: And a side of your finest jelly beans, raw.

    • Jackie: What is it that you do again?
      Charlie: I work... I'm, like, a janit, and, um... I'm a... full-on rapist. You know, Africans, dyslexics, children, that sort of thing.

    • (Charlie blows his breath on the guys' faces)
