Episode Summary

Charlie attempts to cure Alan of his recent bout of sleepwalking; Jake sees his therapist.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Entertaining and hilarious

    On this thrilling episode, Alan Harper began sleepwalking again and in which he hasn't done since he was fourteen. So, Charlie, the counsellor and Evelyn try to improve Alan's condition by getting him to let out some of his feelings to Charlie who was pretending to be Judith in the conversation. The crack up parts were when Rose was in bed with Charlie, Alan sleepwalking (of course lol)and Alan beating up Charlie in the therapist session. Also Charlie's fear of vagina's was just random as. The fact that Alan was improving his sleepwalking condition turned this into one of those episodes with many laughs which was great but the excellent storyline helped the rating too. It was a great episode anyway, much like Episode 20 from this season (two episodes back).moreless
