Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • You forgot me!

    It was hillarious!!! "If you forgot it, it propably won't be that important" and then Jake waiting in the rain, while we already knew that they had forgotten him. Jake's face was priceless!! Then ohok by Charlie, remembering that they had once again forgotten him. And then Jake in the custom and the kite!! And finally Jake requesting that he stays with his mother during the week, Alan asking when she is returning and Judith in the rain!!! Hillarious!!!!!moreless
  • Episode review

    We know that Charlie and Alan struggle with watching Jake, but the catch here was that they had to take him during the week. "Hilarity" ensued.

    The episode definitely had its moments, but when Jake is at the forefront of the storyline, you know that you cannot possibly be in for a classic. I know that I frequently rip on Angus T. Jones, but he was not terrible here, it is just that as an adult I want to hear adult humor, and he rarely delivers that.

    Solid episode that was good for a few laughs, but not exactly the most memorable Men yet.moreless
  • This episode proved that Alan and Charlie are not capable of looking after Jake for a whole week

    This episode proved that Alan and Charlie are not capable of looking after Jake for a whole week.

    Lol, it was a very exciting and suspenseful episode all around. Alan making the mistake of leaving Jake behind at the Sporting, then Charlie doing it again, this time leaving Jake at school in the rain. The last 10 seconds was the best you could get, Alan forgot to pick up Judith from the airport. Whoa, what a crack-up! Non-stop excitement lurks because of Charlie's ridiculous behaviour. But it was 'Entertaining and Hilarious'. An overall impressive episode with a susenseful ending. Great stuff.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Charlie: Jake, it takes more than sex to make a man happy. You also need money.

    • Alan: You know why I was being audited? Not because I have unsubstantiated deductions, which I have. Not because I take the occasional cash payment from a client and forget to report it, which I do. It was because no one at the IRS could believe I was paying as much alimony as I claimed. It took me three hours to convince them that, yes, I am that big a shmuck.

    • Charlie: You like cold pizza, right?
      Jake: Sure. (Charlie throws the pizza to Jake) This is frozen.
      Charlie: Yeah. If you sit on it, it'll thaw by lunch.

    • Jake: Can I have some privacy, please?
      Charlie: For what? You're eleven.
      Jake: That's close to puberty.

    • Charlie: (Charlie walks into Jake's room) Get dressed, buddy, I'm taking you to school.
      Jake: I can't. I'm sick.
      Charlie: Yeah, well, bite me.
      Jake: Hey.
      Charlie: Don't screw with me, shorty. I only got, like, nine hours of sleep last night.

    • Alan: (walks into Charlie's room) Let's go, sleepyhead. Rise and shine, up and at 'em.
      Charlie: Get out of my room, or I'll kill you with my bare hands.

    • Jake: (regarding Alan leaving Jake out in the rain) I can't believe you forgot me.
      Alan: I said I'm sorry.
      Jake: You forgot me.
      Alan: I know, and I feel terrible.
      Jake: How many kids you got?

    • Berta: Show of hands—who spent their day pre-soaking the shorts of a kid who leaves more skid marks than a getaway car? (Berta raises her hand) That's what I thought. Now, if you ladies will excuse me. I have three buses to catch. (Berta leaves the house)
      Charlie: I bet she catches them by hand.

    • Jake: (on Alan giving him an artichoke for part of his lunch) An artichoke?
      Charlie: Maybe you can trade it for something good.
      Jake: With who? One of the slow kids?
      Charlie: Give it a shot. Tell him it's a puppy.

    • Alan: What's taking you so long?
      Jake: I can't find my other shoe.
      Alan: So put on a different pair.
      Jake: But this one's on already.

    • Alan: Come on, Jake. It's time to get up for school.
      Jake: I can't go to school, I'm sick.
      Alan: What's wrong?
      Jake: I think I have acid reflex disease.
      Alan: Really? Acid reflex disease? Where does it hurt?
      Jake: Um... my head?
      Alan: Nice try.

    • Alan: Um, Judith's going to Hawaii for a week. So Jake's staying here.
      Charlie: I'm shocked!

    • Jake: I like it better when Dad takes me to school.
      Charlie: (sarcastically) Oh, gee, you're not having a good time? 'Cause I'm farting rainbows over here!

    • Jake: First my dad forgets about me, and then he sticks me with you!
      Charlie: All right, listen. Your dad works like a dog to make sure you have everything you need, and if he's not there for you sometimes, it's because he's trying to stay out of federal prison.

    • Charlie: I'm sorry, I forgot. Why are you here in the middle of the week?
      Jake: My mom had to take a vacation.
      Charlie: From what?
      Jake: Me.
