It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Dennis Looks Like a Registered Sex Offender
(S03E11) "Yeah, that's right. A maid. A maid I can bang." - Frank
You know, they say that somewhere in the world, everyone has a double. Or at least someone that looks awfully close to them. Dennis definitely got the short end of the stick. Nobody wants to look like a convicted child molester. However, only Dennis would be stupid enough to try and prove that he's not the portly guy depicted in the fliers all over the neighborhood.
For the most part though, Dennis' look-alike issues took a backseat to the rest of the episode which focused on a lot of little plotlines from previous episodes that came together. It was great to see some of that stuff. Then again, it was also great to see Dennis try and prove he's not a child molester by donning a fake moustache and trying to teach kids some exercise techniques with no shirt on. So smart.
You've got to hand it to Dee though. She can be just as conniving as everyone else when she wants to be. Setting her brother up to get the crap kicked out of him was a nice touch since she's been on the receiving end most of this season.
The return of Luther (had we learned his name before?) was hilarious and I liked how it overlapped with the release of Wendell "Shorteyes" Albright. Charlie bringing up the "heroin in the butt" story was to be expected but I think the highlight for me was when Luther said "I don't blink." He always has bug-eyes! Seeing Mac get all needy and mushy whenever his dad is around always seemed weird to me though. It's just so against his character. I'm not used to seeing him like that.
Frank's decision to move out of Charlie's place was definitely overdue. He's the laziest, most selfish, and opinionated out of all of them. To be honest, I'm surprised it took him this long to move out on Charlie. It is a little odd that he suddenly craves sex though. While a "bang maid" is pretty much the best idea ever, he did have an estranged wife (Anne Archer) he could have tried to patch things up with... until she died.
I guess my point is that ever since we were introduced to Frank, he's sort of been this little asexual troll who didn't really have any need for lovin'. Sure there were stories of past exploits and he was having some sex (Coffee Shop Girl) -- but it always seemed to fall into his lap. People change I guess. Like a little kid who one day decides that lima beans don't taste so bad after all. The fact that he moved in with Charlie's mom added a nice layer to it though. She'll sleep with anyone who looks at her, huh?
Most disturbing moment of the episode? When Dennis and Dee took care of Wendell by threatening to pay off a little boy to tell molestation lies. "He makes me tastes things I don't want to!" OH MY GOD. That might be the furthest this show has ever pushed it.
The end was great too. I sort of expected Luther to be rehabilitated so that wasn't too much of a surprise. Telling Mac he was going to kill him was a bit freaky. As expected... he didn't blink. I guess we'll see an episode called "Mac's Dad is Trying to Kill Him" in season four.
