Episode Summary

Judith gets worried when Jake draws the tattooed buttocks of a female surfer friend of Charlie's who walks around his place half naked. Alan feels concern for Judith when she befriends the surfer girl.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • I understand. Two and a Half Men starts to find itself!

    In this episode, Charlie's friend Cindy is a surfer who uses the house for convenience and easy access to the beach. Cindy begins to make an impression on young Jake's view of women, as evidenced by his school drawing of Cindy's rear-end tattoo. This leads to Judith's involvement and criticism of Charlie. As Charlie attempts to calm Judith down, she strikes an unlikely friendship with Cindy over their shared aggravations about their fathers.Jake, meanwhile, begins learning two very different lessons in women's anatomy from Alan and Charlie.

    Charlie and Alan are left to speculate as to why Judith is spending so much time with Cindy and why Charlie has not been able to get romantically involved with his surfer girl. They conclude that Judith and Cindy are lesbians.

    This early in Season 1, there is still some character development going on, and the show begins to feel like the "Men" we eventually get to know. Charlie becomes a bigger influence on both Alan and Jake. Their comedic timing has improved and Charlie is really settling in. The "I understand" bit is hysterical and Sheen's delivery is spot-on. This is one of the episodes that makes you wish Jake was still a kid after 8+ seasons.moreless
  • A good episode in which some very unexpected things occur in the Malibu household

    On this episode, Charlie's sort of girlfriend and Judith get together in which Alan and Charlie come to think that those two are lesbians because of all their crazy surfing, nutty sweet talk and all the etc. The funny parts were how Jake has suddenly become interested in women's parts because he saw Cindy's tattoo on her right butt cheek. Then for a few reasons, Judith confronts Charlie over a picture that Jake drew and guess what it was: Cindy's right cheek with the tattoo on it. Judith then starts going to Charlie about all her personal problems which was strange but hell hilarious. Soon, Charlie is once again confronted by Judith because he said that Cindy and Judith were lesbians hanging out together. But Jake's obsession with b***s were the best parts. The final scene how Judith, Cindy and Jake were at the movies was freaking hilarious. "Real, fake... Fake, Real" Lol.

    Overall, a fine example of lesbians and implants. A good episode with a few good laughs. It was more a good story rather than an episode full of laughter.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jake: I got to see penguins and a manta ray. I got to pet a shark, and the coolest thing was the whales. They splashed everybody. You could see right through this one lady's shirt. I think she had plants.
      Charlie: Implants.
      Jake: Yeah, implants. I asked grandma if she had them and grandpa said, "Aw, I wish." And then she got mad at him and then they bought me ice cream.

    • Alan: Wake up, wake up, wake up.
      Charlie: What? I was having a great dream.
      Alan: Your girlfriend, my wife—surfing, showering, rubber suits.
      Charlie: Okay, this might be better.

    • Charlie: Congratulations, Alan, you've managed to take the fun out of boobs.

    • Alan: Hey, where've you been?
      Charlie: I just had lunch with my mother and my stalker.

    • Charlie: I thought we agreed we were just friends.
      Rose: We are. We're friends who slept together once, and then one friend never called the other friend, but luckily the other friend forgave him.
      (Rose walks towards the kitchen)
      Charlie: Where are you going?
      Rose: To make my friend a grilled cheese sandwhich.
      Charlie: Rose, Rose, I don't want a grilled cheese sandwhich.
      Rose: Would you prefer a quesadilla?
      Charlie: That sounds nice.

    • Alan: Charlie, there is a half naked woman in our kitchen.
      Charlie: Which half?

    • Charlie: Alan, there's something you should know about me. When I say "I understand", it doesn't mean I agree, it doesn't mean I understand, it doesn't even mean I'm listening.
