Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Hilarious!!!

    This is definitely one of the best "Two and a Half Men" episodes that I have ever seen. It's nice to actually see an episode without Charlie trying to get "the goods" on a woman and have sex with her. I mean, yeah it's funny, but it gets kinda tiring to see it in almost every episode sometimes. Luckily, this episode is actually different. Definitely one of my favorite episodes of this show. I literally can't stop laughing at this episode. I love every moment of it, not one dull moment. Alan getting a job to pay for Kandi's bills was very funny. Judith getting after Alan because he needs to help pay the alimony bills was very funny. Charlie enjoying seeing Alan being miserable trying to come up with the money is also funny. I also laughed very hard when Alan got Jake's piggy bank. OMG, Alan getting a second job as a pizza delivery guy at Pizzeria is my favorite part out of the entire episode. Alan doing his "pizza" accents was so funny such as when he said "Enjoy Your Pizza", "Imma so happy", "Imma so sad", and the last line that ended this episode "Imma so screwed". I just couldn't stop laughing at this episode. The storyline was well written and there were a lot of parts that really made me laugh hard. Overall, one of the best "Two and a Half Men" episodes that I have ever seen. 10/10moreless
  • Excellent storylines from this episode

    Heh, this is my second time watching it and the first was a couple of years ago. It's even better than I remember it! A hilarious episode containing great storylines that mixed in well with the plot.

    Charlie watches as Alan screws himself with Kandi who relies on Alan to pay for her needed stuff. It became very hilarious as Kandi is more mature than she used to be, making their relationship more likely to get into a long-term one.

    Funny parts from this episode. The Judith parts were fabulous and each character had their good lines. I have to admit, this season has had episodes that go from bad to excellent. Although probably not as funny in the laughing as the previous episode, this one opened up a stronger storyline with a great start, middle and ending. Alan and Kandi were the best tonight. So, in the overall; excellent storylines and great acting from everyone turning this into a very great episode. I'm excited about the next one as well.moreless
  • just laugh laugh and more laugh

    awesome, every episode is always laughing ... keeps getting better and i cant get enough. keep up! Alan keeps doing crap and Charlie keeps going smooth, poor kid, in real life i would be in trouble. great episode. special note to the fine miss lol that does Alan's girlfriend =) keep it up
  • This episode was so stupid

    Alan paying for Candy's dental work, her apartment, and her car was stupid. I can only handle a little bit of Candy per episode. The exwife also gets on my nerves. Bertha was great as usual. Jake needs to be written better though. I don't like that they make him stupid.

    Two and a half men is back ! After two lacklustre episodes, the writers have come up with absolutely top notch comedy. Right from the start till the end I just couldn't help laughing my ass out. Charlie's dialogues were hilarious. That scene when Alan asks Charlie to help him with the piggy bank was awesome. I pity Alan though. He just can't let go Candy. Obviously who would want to let go such a hot chick ! And he also can't afford to keep her. I also miss Charlie's hot dates. I just think the episode is a bit incomplete with Charlie not having sex in an episode.moreless
