Episode Summary

Against Alan's judgment, Charlie falls for a seemingly crazy woman named Frankie.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Part 1 of this 2-Part episode was great but a little boring

    Against Alan's judgment, Charlie falls for a seemingly crazy woman named Frankie. I thought that this was a great episode of "Two and a Half Men". Not the greatest episode I've ever seen from this show but it's still great to watch. The storyline could do better though and I honestly didn't laugh a lot. The point is that Part 1 of this 2-Part episode wasn't terrible at all. It just could have had much more humor in most of the parts. One of the parts that did make me laugh hard was when Charlie said "Round One To The Crazy Hot Chick" (which was the title of the episode). The woman saying "Charlie, you're a great guy but I'm not having sex with you" and then that's when Charlie said the line that I just finished saying. A lot of more parts in this episode made me laugh as well but I can't think of any at this moments. I'm sure that fans will enjoy this episode just as much as I do though so go all out to watch this episode if ever get a chance. Overall, Part 1 of this 2-Part episode could have done better but it's great for the most part. 8/10moreless

    Is there any argument or debate about this episode possible being the best episode of the series? We got awesome interactions and hilarious one liners from Jenna Elfman who did a fantastic job at playing "the crazy chick."

    I also loved the competition between Alan & Charlie. I was pretty intrigued with Jenna Elfman's character all throughout. From the opening scene to the cliffhanger. By Two and a Half Men's standards, this was a near-perfect two parter.

    The cold opening was perfect, the interactions were hilarious, and we got a really intriguing cliffhanger to top it off. Yep, this definitely has to be the best episode of Two and a Half Men.moreless
  • Good ep

    This is a good episode that really shows what Two and a Half Men is about and how this is one of the best comedies on TV. Truly the quintessential Two and a Half Men, if you will. Charlie being the guy who thinks about getting into bed all the time, and Alan trying to be rational, only to discover that he thinks more like Charlie than he would care to admit.

    I am not exactly the biggest Jenna Elfman fan out there, but this was a good role for her, and not Chuck Lorre simply shoving one of his former stars down our throats.moreless
  • The first of a two-parter episode, a great one too!

    In the first of a two-parter episode, Charlie and Alan met a seemingly hot crazy woman in a parking lot smashing up her psychiatrists car. Lol, Charlie explained that she was a very sexy woman.

    Honestly, I was totally agreeable with Alan when he said "I'm sorry? That arouses you?!". Charlie is in for the big one.

    I liked the plot on this one, the only episode on the show that continued into the another episode, one long and great storyline.

    The part I cracked up with most was when Charlie yelled "I'm afraid that I'm gonna hit you so hard that I'll be an only child!" Haha. That was said to Alan.

    But basically, Alan and Frankie were meant to be together (so it seemed). Pretty funny how Frankie never explained herself or her future to the boys. A very secretive person indeed.

    Well, it ended with Frankie going to pick up her daughter and placing her in the Jaguar with the boys. To be continued....

    Well, overall, some very funny comments were said to one another when the brothers were fighting and in my opinion, this episode had the best plot compared to any of the previous episodes..moreless
  • Boys will be boys.. The two brothers compete for Frankie's attention...

    When Charlie and Allan see a hot blonde, Frankie, in a parking garage, the two brothers compete with each other to win her attention. When they see her, she was smashing the car of her psychiatrist with a baseball bat and she seems to have some sporadic behavior. When she asks Charlie if she can come to stay at his place, he accepts with an idea of his own in his mind. It seems that Frankie is hiding something and we don’t know to whom she’s talking on the phone. At the end of the episode, she asks the two brothers to drive her somewhere, she gets off the car, and alter comes back with her daughter…moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The license plate on the car that Jenna Elfman destroys is 2GAT123, a standard fake plate number akin to 555 exchanges for telephone numbers.

    • When Jenna is smashing her psychiatrist's car and she breaks the taillight. A few shots later she breaks the back window and you can clearly see that the tail light is fixed again magically.

    • Notice how when Charlie and Alan leave the dentist's office Alan's voice is still funny from having his wisdom teeth pulled. It remains that way even in the car. Yet, moments later when Judith comes to pick up Jake, Alan's voice is magically better. It seems very unlikely that he would feel better that fast.

    • When Charlie and Alan are in the garage talking, Charlie's back is turned to the car and in the background you can see that the side window of the psychiatrist's car is already broken, but we don't see it get broken until the next scene Frankie when breaks the glass with a bat.

      Alan: Isn't that dangerous?
      Frankie: For who, the racoons? They can't get past the childproof tops.

    • Charlie: Why are you destroying your psychiatrist's car?
      Frankie: He told me I had anger management issues.
      (She smashes the car window with a baseball bat)
      Charlie: The quack.
      Frankie: Then he hit on me.
      Charlie: The horny quack.

    • Frankie: Hey Charlie!
      Charlie: Yeah.
      Frankie: I think you're a really cool guy.
      Charlie: Yeah?
      Frankie: But I'm not gonna have sex with you.
      Charlie (after thinking a while): Ever?!
