thoughts on always sunny the high school reunion part 2: the gang’s revenge

Will’s P.O.V

“The gang’s revenge?” Not too sure if it worked out that way but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless. When I think “season finale” I think dance routines, girdles, stolen prom dates, motivational speeches, and back braces. Rarely does a show actually meet my standards – which aren’t too high – but Sunny went above and beyond so I tip my hat to thee. Let’s just get to it then shall we?

  • Dennis was NEVER the “Golden God” he made us believe he was. He was just a lackey who’s prom date was stolen by Ronald McDonald.
  • I wish “Psycho” Pete would have made an appearance; he sounded like a ton of fun. Cannibalism and arson is always top-tier entertainment.
  • Giving Dee a wedgie as an initiation into the “Freight Train” was fitting…even if her back was thrown out because of it.
  • That makes two weeks in a row that we’ve had a reference to Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back“. But at least Dennis used it in the right context.
  • “Plan B” should have been “Plan A”! Maybe it didn’t go as planned but I’m sure the real version was just as spectacular as its projected variant.  Also, Charlie has AMAZING footwork.
  • Ronald McDonald said that Peter Schmidt would come when the party was over and take the drunkest girl home with him. He was half right. Jason Sudeikis showed up and took The Waitress right out of Charlie’s grasp. Can we please just give the rabbit some damn Trix?! I got your back Charlie.

Quotes

…I was demonstrating value on the dance floor, then I engaged you physically when I put my hands on your hips, now I’m nurturing your independence by letting you talk shit about your boring, worthless, piece of shit husband. Then I was gonna take you to an empty broom closet and then I was gonna…bang the shit outta you. And then I was gonna neglect you emotionally. That’s what I do Christy.” – Dennis

 

Where you going? You afraid?” – Frank

No, we’re not afraid. We’re in our 30’s, we don’t fight people anymore. It’s kinda pathetic.” -Adriano

Yeah? Well too bad, cuz the fury’s already coming, bitch.”  -Dennis

 

You slept with my prom date?” -Dennis

No? Yes.” -Mac

How could you do that to me?” -Dennis

Very easy. Uh…she was a whore.” -Mac

always sunny recapping: storm of the century

Will’s P.O.V.

Lusting after good ole fashioned big breasticled news reporters is a swell platform – pun intended –  for the opening scene of Sunny. I didn’t think it would go much further than that honestly, but Dennis is a man on a mission. Philadelphia is getting ready for “The storm of the century” and everyone is getting supplies to prepare for the onslaught. Mac, Dennis, and Charlie head to the local supermarket to get food, girls, and batteries (respectively) while Dee and Frank stay back at Paddy’s to storm-proof.

Mac is pretty much a no-show during the entire middle of the episode, but Dennis and Charlie made me forget about that. From Dennis’ failed attempt to get some girls back to Paddy’s for his “Hurricane Party” to Charlie’s plan on accepted incestuous behavior to repopulate the planet Duke Nukem style the episode tickled me. Add in Dennis’ sighting of the aforementioned big breasted broadcaster, while Alone is ballading (<–present tense of ballad) the hell out of your eardrums, and I’m sold.

Meanwhile at Paddy’s, Frank and Dee are deciding what the difference between looting and surviving is. (My personal opinion, if you take anything from a store when there is no natural disaster then you are looting, I’m looking at you LA. But I digress.) I didn’t get much satisfaction from this pairing besides that and the fact that I love Dee so much more when she is especially spastic. They eventually find Cricket in their personal bunker and Frank shoots him. So they head to the supermarket (not the hospital) and Cricket drives the car through the entrance starting a riot.

Meanwhile Mac is at the bunker eating Ben & Jerry’s – I’d like to think it was Schweddy Balls flavored for the obvious comical reasons.

Nicole’s P.O.V.

Jackie Denardo’s (Jessica Collins, Tru Calling) boobs were reason enough to get a 3D television and care about the storm. I was nervous boobs would be the focus of the episode. I’m pro-boobage but I wanted a little bit more from the gang this week and they delivered…kind of. The episode wasn’t “fall out your seat and laugh ‘til you pee” funny, but it was far from a boring episode – mostly thanks to Charlie.

The gang is prepping for a Category 5 storm in the assbackwardsly way only they can. Dee is obsessing over a robopacalypse. Dennis is drawing up (semi-creepy) clauses and contracts to make sure they get “chicks and tits” back to the bunker. Charlie is on battery duty, but somehow he’s the only one to gather up a decent amount of supplies. Mac really only cares about getting the food. And Frank (accurately) thinks back on “that hurricane in New Orleans” and explains the difference between looting and surviving.

While Charlie and Dennis are imagining a big-breasted society they’ll repopulate after the storm, Cricket is back at the bar attempting to raid the bunker and is shot by Frank. When Dee and Frank drive Cricket to the hospital, they of course stop at the All American Home Center to make sure they don’t miss out on the supplies, leaving Cricket in the car…which he crashes….inciting a mini-riot….that triggers the looting/surviving. So we end the night with no storm and a jolly Mac with his 3D TV, food and an empty bunker all to himself.

Quotes

The Breast make you care about the weather in a really good way.” –Charlie

We gotta stop pussy-dickin’ around here.” – Dee

Mayans. Mexicans. What’s the difference?” – Charlie

Storm coming. Hatchet coming.” – Charlie

How did you not know…that the reason I invited you back to my bar…was to bang you? GET OUTTA HERE!!!” -Dennis

it’s always sunny in philadelphia recapping: frank reynolds’ little beauties

Just as the episode starts and Frank busts up his face – bloody broken nose and all – I was starting to think that this season of Always Sunny I was just going to have to deal with bodily fluids being a main part of each episode. I’m not the most squeamish person but at some point it’s going to get overdone and annoying. But looking pass that, the episode was classic Sunny gold…or yellow…I’m not sure.

Frank’s Little Beauties Pageant was inappropriate and beautiful. The gang makes the pageant about themselves as much as the kids and I greatly appreciated. Anytime the cast gets on stage I will, inevitably, compare it to the blockbuster performance that was The Nightman Cometh and this opening act was just as perfect. Whenever Charlie is given a microphone and Mac’s new belly bulge can’t be contained by his shirt AND awkward semi-stiff choreography is in the mix you can buy me two tickets to that show any day! Dee had a separate performance with a reluctant contestant. Charlie, Mac and Dennis gave “Yankee Doodle Dandy” a rave remix with the help of the lone male contestant. Pure genius.


If I can be promised at least two stage performances every season from the gang I don’t see how they can’t go another seven seasons easily. This was the first episode of the season that I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. I can’t lose faith in “the gang” and episodes like this help solidify my stance.

Quotes

When Dee use to enter pageants when we were kids Mom use to tell her not to waste her time because she wasn’t pretty enough.” -Dennis

How would you win pageants? Did u have a different face?” -Mac (to Dee)

I bet you wish you win this pageant don’t you?” -Dee
My mom says I’m not pretty enough.” -Justine
Your mom doesn’t know dick! She’s a dumb fat cow and your sister is a stupid little s**t mouth b***h, isn’t she?” -Dee
