Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • marriage

    charlie and mia plan to elope in vegas when their wedding plans don't seem to go right. but charlie discovers mia wants alan and jake to move out since it is technically charlie's house. he gets frustrated, and calls off the wedding. only for alan to reveal he is marrying candy, meaning he himself is going to move out. To Be Continued...

    A decent episode, not great but not too bad. I liked the cliffhanger aspect of it and it makes you wonder what will happen next. My overall grade would be in the "C" or "B" range, I thinkmoreless
  • Very interesting, yet good episode.

    So it appears Charlie, is finally getting married to Mia. Or so are they? This actually turns out to be a very ironic, I hope that I'm using that correctly, episode. Charlie and Mia were pretty darn close to getting married, until they have a fight about Alan staying at the house. Charlie, surprisingly, sticks up for his brother, saying stuff like he's got no where to go and other defendy stuff, I think. So they end up not getting married. But then, almost right after, Alan wins the jackpot and ends up marrying Kandi and leaving the house anyways. So Charlie could have gotten married, but didn't. Still an exciting episode.moreless
  • Great season finale for one of the best seasons

    Charlie asks Mia to marry him and she says yes. Their plans get ruined when they go to hhave dinner with their families and fights of who should go and who shouldnt go start, leading them to escape from Malibu and run to Las Vegas and get married there. Mia tries to convince Charlie to make Alan move out, but he declines so the wedding is off. The episode ends with Alan marrying Kandi and Charlie saying: "I dont freaking belive it".

    This marks the end of season 3, which I personally think as one of the best in the series. Nobody ever thought that Charlie would really get married and quit his bachelor habbits, and they were right. Alan marries for a second time... and gets kicked out again in season 4 premiere.

    A great finale for a great season.moreless
  • Charlie's getting married, or is he?

    I thought this was an excellent episode with a lot of hilarious one-liners. The scene where Charlie has to tell Rose he's getting married, her reaction is priceless. And then she shows up in a wedding dress at Mia's door. Mia tells Charlie "She said she was going to show up in a wedding dress at our wedding and she wanted to make sure we wouldn't clash". Then them all talking about the disastrous restaurant meeting with Mia's family. How Mia's mother wore a track suit with the word "juicy" streched across her butt. How Mia's father stuck Charlie with the check. Charlie saying to Alan "You and her father practically collided trying to run to the restroom when the bill came" or something like that. Then Charlie and Mia eloping to Los Vegas with Alan ahd Kandi. But when Charlie realized that Mia expects him to get rid of Alan and Jake after they get married he calls the wedding off. Then Alan impusively marries Kandi at the same Los Vegas wedding chapel, and he tells Charlie he's leaving anyway! A classic and pivotal episode.moreless
  • This is one of the best.

    Not the best but this is great.I am surprised that nobody has mentioned the end scene where Alan says he`s moving out to live with Kandi.The reason Charlie didn`t marry Mia was because Alan was living with him ... to be continued can only mean that the storyline of these episodes is not finished, and that although everybody is saying `predictable, knew he wasn`t going to marry Mia` he still might.This was not the funniest episode - it wasn`t supposed to be - and if it was it would`ve been the best episode ever ... and it was still pretty close.It`s closed the window of the great season, but opened a door

    Un - freakin` - believable.moreless
