  • Charlie borrows $38 from Alan, and Alan cheeply requests it back immediately. Charlie is laid back about the situation, until Alan goes over the top to try and get his money back, which leads to his dismissal from Charlie's home.

    This episode seemed a bit repetitive for me. Alan's character is exploited in this episode once again. The highlight of the episode is how cheap Alan is.

    Charlie borrows $38 from Alan, and Alan is insistant on taking it back immediately. The storyline seems a little uncreative for me, since Charlie is rich enough to use his own money for his own personal needs, and it is not explained well enough as to why he may need to borrow Alan's money. In that case, the storyline was lazily prepared.

    The repetive feature in this episode is Alan's removal from the House. Alan has been kicked out of Charlie's house before. With this poor storyline, it seems like this episode is only using this narrative for humour gathered through the audiences pity of Alan's character.

    What is done differently in this episode is Alan's return to Judith's house. Alan's short stay at Judith's comes to a quick end when Alan accidentally wanders into Judith's bedroom and starts cuddling up to her - Old habits die hard!

    The episode is definately funny, it's gags are enjoyable, but once again Jake is left in the background with no strong involvement in the main storyline, due to the lack of ideas for his ageing character. Jake's humour is still used from his stupidity, however the writers seem to be running out of ideas for him.
