After many months of people begging and pleading for me to watch Always Sunny in Philadelphia I decided to finally give it a chance to stop their griping. All I can say is I have never made a bigger mistake in my life. All I thought after giving the show a couple of episodes was, “I could have been watching this show for months!” In the spirit of me adding a new show to my platter of shows I already watch I decided I would share my favorite 5 episodes from the ones that I have seen so far.
5. Sweet Dee Gets Audited, Season 7 Episode 4
In this episode obviously Dee gets audited. She is claiming child support for her surrogate baby, or the baby that she had for another couple. Of course the government smells something fishy and comes searching for answers that she obviously cannot answer. Throughout the episode she is trying to trick the IRS lady that she has a baby. When all hope is lost Dennis comes up with the “genius” plan to fake the babies death. They hold a funeral in the bar and everything goes wrong. Dennis shoots pepper power into Dee’s eyes and the coffin gets tipped over revealing a dead alley dog inside.
4. The Gang Gets Analyzed, Season 8 Episode 5
The episode starts with the gang fighting over who is going to do the dishes. So instead of deciding this like rational people they go to a psychiatrist. When they get there she finds that there is a lot wrong with the group and decides to analyze them one by one. Each analysis is hilarious. You find out that Dennis has been giving Mac pills to cut weight, Charlie doesn’t like to be told what to do, Frank bawls his eyes out and talks about his first love, Dennis shows his own psychology skills from his one class at Penn State and Dee shows off her acting.
3. Dennis and Dee Go on Welfare, Season 2 Episode 3
Dennis and Dee are the best part about this episode. They try to get on welfare by being a drug addict and a mentally handicap person. Of course this fails as they do not have the paper work to prove it, so in an effort to become drug addicts they try crack, and become addicted to it. The best part of the episode is when Dennis rolls down the window to pay the crack dealer.
2. The Nightman Cometh, Season 4 Episode 13
Charlie writes a play that has very suggestive things throughout it. Of course this was all in attempts to show the waitress that he is a man. This episode features some great musical performances and hilarious songs.
1. America’s Next Top Paddy’s Billboard Model Contest, Season 4 Episode 3
Frank decides to get a billboard to promote the bar. While Dennis and Mac are trying to map out the design of the billboard Frank interrupts them and the single greatest line ever spoken is spoken by Dennis,
Frank: You’re not gonna be up there … because I am gonna be the face of Paddy’s bar.
Dennis: That’s ridiculous, Frank. You’re, um … ugly.
Frank: I’m what?
Frank: I’m ugly?
Frank: With that anteater nose, you’re tellin’ me I’m ugly?
Dennis: My nose was chiseled by the gods themselves, Frank. My body was sculpted to the proportions of Michelangelo’s David. You, on the other hand, well … you’re a pit of despair. Frank, you disgust me. You disgust everyone. And you will never, ever be on that billboard.
Kills me every time. The side story to the billboard is Dee trying to become YouTube famous.
