“I guess Charlie had the cruelest intentions of all.”

its-always-sunny-charlie-and-dee-find-loveAfter getting rear-ended by an attractive, and rich, young man (Josh Casaubon) and his sister (Alexandra Daddario), Charlie (Charlie Day) and Dee (Kaitlin Olson) find themselves invited to dinner. Not willing to see the pair screw this up, Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Frank (Danny DeVito) offer their own brand of helpful support which leads to an awkward dinner that somehow, despite all logic, doesn’t turn off the pair’s new friends.

Believing the situation to be too good to be true, and some kind of rich game of humiliation, Dennis, Mac, and Frank tag along on a trip to the Taft mansion the next day. After he stops trying to hit on Charlie’s new lady love, Dennis does discover that Dee and Mac have gotten themselves humiliated exactly as he thought they would. That’s right, possibly for the first time ever, Dennis Reynolds was right. Dennis is able to get revenge for Mac and Dee’s public humiliation, by showing an awkward recording of Mac and his new rich pal to an entire room of his peers. Charlie’s situation, however, proves to be more complicated.

Realizing that the Waitress’ (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) life is starting to fall apart without Charlie’s constant meddling, Dennis sends Frank in his place who manages to make things worse, but somehow also manages to make the Waitress miss her stalker. All of which leads into the episode’s climax where Charlie returns to the waitress (who doesn’t really want him) after publicly humiliating his new rich girlfriend (who was just starting to fall in love with him) by admitting to all her friends that he was only using, and sleeping with, her to get back in the Waitress’ good graces.

Given the amount of crap he takes you sometimes forget Charlie is just as bad a person as the rest of the Paddy’s Pub crew, but it’s moments like this, where his cruelty even surprises his friends, that remind you Charlie is exactly where he belongs.
