Episode Summary

Charlie tries to save Jake from school suspension for giving his teacher the finger by romancing her, but his attempts fail every time.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Another thrilling episode of the show. But can Charlie ever date enough women?

    Probably a little more exciting than the previous episode because of the plot. This one focussed on Charlie and Jake's teacher Miss Pasternak and in which they met because Jake gave his teacher the bird while she was writing on the board. Yeah, Jake and Charlie were hilarious throughout this episode, even Berta. "Good morning you goofy clueless bastard!" said Berta, lol.

    I recommend this episode for those wanting a good laugh from one of Charlie's dates. It was hilarious and plotted out well. Not a best episode for the top ten, but it was sure the series classic. Overall, the first three episodes of this season have been funny and plotted out well but I've seen better (from the first season). Still very impressive though. I wonder what will happen as the season goes by?... lolmoreless
