Episode Summary

A pregnancy scare has Charlie heading to the doctor for a vasectomy.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Comic genius from start to finish!

    From the moment Charlie has to talk a previous conquest through a pregnancy test on the phone, all the way to the surgeon talking to his wife in labour on the phone - while in the middle of performing Charlie's vasectomy - this episode is solid gold. I absolutely laughed from start to finish.

    Lines like this are generally not funny on paper. It shows how good the guys on screen are when you find yourself laughing out loud at -

    Charlie - 'I'm thinking of getting a vasectomy'

    Jake - 'What's wrong with the car you have now?'

    Later in the conversation

    Alan (to Charlie) - 'I think he knows more than he's letting on'

    Charlie (to Jake) - 'You do, don't you?'

    Jake (shrugging) - 'I hear things'

    Don't take my word for it - watch the episode, then watch all the others! I stand by my review posted for the whole show... BEST. COMEDY. AROUND. IN. 2006. NUFF. SAIDmoreless
  • Quite a nice finale, Charlie and frozen Popsicles!

    This was a series classic!

    On this exclusive season finale, Charlie almost makes a woman pregnant so he goes for a vasectomy.

    This vasectomy business turned into a hilarious episode full of great storyline, good ending and an overall nice conclusion to the first season. Very impressive.

    My favorite scene was the snipping, "Ooh, that's quite a haircut". Man, Rose walking in on Charlie masturbating was crack-up. I just hope the later seasons of the show present the same laughter as this season. Even better if the next series is funnier and plotted out better. I found this season hilarious but the great storyline probably got the better of this series.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • (after discussing Charlie's upcoming procedure)
      Alan: I guess he knows more than he lets on.
      Charlie: You do, don't you?
      Jake: I hear things.

    • Charlie: Okay, let me try this again. A vasectomy is a very simple procedure.
      Jake: Are you sick??
      Charlie: No, no, no, I'm perfectly healthy. It's just a procedure so that I don't have babies by accident.
      Jake: Oh, yeah, like we had to do with Scout.
      Charlie: Scout?
      Alan: The dog we had. Couldn't keep it in his fur! Keep going, you're doing great.
      Charlie: Jake, it's not exactly the same with people as it is with dogs.
      Jake: I know. (long pause) Why don't you just wear a condom?

    • Alan: (holding a bag for Charlie) So what's in the bag?
      Charlie: Sperm.
      Alan: No, really.
      Charlie: Sperm.
      Alan: (disturbed) Whose sperm?
      Charlie: Seabiscuit's. Who do you think? Mine!
      Alan: I thought we were going to a movie!

    • Doctor: (about freezing sperm) You don't have to do it here. We can give you a container, and you can go home and make yourself comfortable. Dim the lights, put on a little sweet soul music--
      Charlie: I know the procedure.
      Doctor: Then you just bring it back here while the little fellas are still swimming, and we'll turn them into Popsicles!
      Charlie: Popsicles?
      Doctor: You know, just in case someday want to become a pop!
      Charlie: Oh, yeah, very clever.

    • Doctor: Now, let me ask you a question. Do you have children already?
      Charlie: No.
      Doctor: Okay, then you might want to consider freezing some sperm, just in case you change your mind.
      Charlie: Frozen sperm? I don't know.
      Doctor: Why not?
      Charlie: Well, you know, when you freeze shrimp, it's never as good as fresh.
      Doctor: That's really not the same thing.
      Charlie: So you know for a fact that frozen kids are just as good as the regulars?

    • Doctor: (at a consultation meeting with Charlie, who wants a vasectomy) Actually, you'll be able to perform the same way you did before.
      Charlie: Great. But what about creativity? You see, I write music for a living. Will I still be able to do that?
      Doctor: Do you write with your testicles?
      Charlie: No.
      Doctor: Then it shouldn't be a problem.

    • Alan: Why don't you just get snipped?
      Charlie: You mean a vasectomy?
      Alan: Yeah.
      Charlie: Then say "vasectomy." Don't say "snipped!"
      Alan: What's wrong with "snipped?"
      Charlie: It's demeaning. "Snipped" is what you get for twelve dollars at Supercuts!

    • Charlie: (on the phone with a former date who thinks she's pregnant) Okay, the instructions sound pretty clear. You pee on the stick, and if it turns blue, that means you're pregnant... no, the stick turns blue!

    • Charlie: (refering to one of the girls he brought home) She's not exactly a rocket scientist.
      Alan: As opposed to the Nobel prize winners you usually bring home.

    • Jake: (answering the phone) Hello. What? I can't understand you.
      Alan: Who is it?
      Jake: I don't know—some woman crying.
      Alan: (into the phone) Hold on. (screams) Charlie!
      Charlie: What?
      Alan: Phone for you.
      Charlie: Who is it?
      Alan: A hysterical woman.
      Charlie: Are you insane? I don't take calls from hysterical women.
      Alan: (into the phone) Here he is.

    • Charlie: Hey, congratulations! When is the wedding?

    • Charlie: Well, Jake, your uncle Charlie is getting a vasectomy.
      Jake: Oh. What's wrong with the car you have now?

    • Alan: So... you're not gonna have the vasectomy?
      Charlie: Hey, I tried my best, but it just wasn't meant to be.
      Alan: What do you mean?
      Charlie: You think it was a coincidence that my urologist was having a baby at the very moment I was about to get snipped? I mean, I'm not a particularly religious guy, but clearly a power much greater then myself wants me to knock somebody up some day.
      Rose:(comes into the room) You called?
