'Two and a Half Men' - 'I Found Your Moustache' Recap

(S07E17) Oh my my... have we seen the future of 'Two and a Half Men' and it's Alan and Charlie sitting on a couch vegetating, bickering and grateful to have each other to clean up their dribble? Maybe. And if you think Charlie's gotten over Chelsea, think again. Evelyn might want to hang on to the banquet hall at the Beverly Hills Hotel. More on that and the dancing Japanese Kabuki transsexuals after the jump.
Charlie had exactly what he used to want in this episode. Chelsea came over for a booty call then left the morning after. Wasn't that his raison detre in years gone by? Perhaps Charlie has really changed or else Chelsea is the love of his life. She still doesn't seem like the one, but the writers have yet to let her go. Goodness knows they've had opportunities. If this is there idea of happily ever after for Charlie, count me out.
While Charlie's desires seem clear, what exactly is Chelsea up to? She's convinced that Charlie can't change, but the perfect Brad wasn't good enough for her to sleep with ... so what does she want? She had the chance to reconcile with Charlie and used him for sex, but then was gone again. Frankly, Charlie still needs to reclaim his balls and take control of his life. He's never been so whipped by a woman. Perhaps the ultimate joke would be to find out that Chelsea's been playing him all along. Oh, and about her living with her father since moving out of the beach house, I don't buy it. Chelsea owns apartment buildings in L.A. Why not just move into one of those?
Finally, after a beer with Tom and Ed, Charlie had no idea what the hell to do. Taking advice from them didn't seem like the best solution ... although they are happy together. Maybe Charlie's reconciliation with Alan was the answer? He actually confessed to loving his brother without the aid of LSD or massive amounts of Padron. Who'd have guessed that? Alan crying in gratitude was predictable, but Charlie's kindness? No, not Charlie.
Still, can't you just see them ending up with only each other? Talk about the ultimate bad joke! Emotional crapshoot indeed.
Other points of interest
-- Those were the smallest cups of popcorn you've ever seen at the movies, don't you think? Realism counts and they should have been buckets.
-- A little of Chelsea's father and his lover goes a long way. They've milked these gay gags enough.
-- Charlie's fake moustache sort of '70s porn star? No, more like one of the Super Mario Brothers.
-- What does $3 of gas get you these days in California? A thimbleful of ethyl? Alan would never go for premium. But kudos for still having a 1989 Volvo. Pretty soon it'll be vintage. By the way, did you see the new Volvo ad during the episode?
-- Maybe Alan does have a career in music. His rendition of "Charlie's Blues" had a good hook.
