Grumpy maid Berta's airhead daughter Cheryl Ann needs a babysitter for her daughter, so Charlie allows Berta to bring her along. Alas, at sixteen Prudence is mentally barely Jake's equal, but physically more then any Harper handles easily. Even Charlie needs a pretense-girl-friend, a part Rose enjoys, groping and kissing her 'monkey-man'. Prudence makes it much harder to rebuke Judith's complaints that Charlie has a bad influence on Jake. At night, Prudence seeks a place to crash- but not alone. Written by

When Prudence says that the bassist of a rock band wrote a song, "Dear Prudence," about her, Charlie responds that it sounds like a song a bassist would write, presumably referring to the song of that title recorded by nm1397313
. While that Beatles composition is credited to both nm0006168
(the latter being The Beatles' bassist), John Lennon actually wrote the song by himself. See more

She's playing with Jake.
Oh good! A little playmate for Jake. That'll give him something to do for today.
I just hope they're quiet, 'cause I've got a lot of work to do.

Nana, did you throw out my cigarettes again?

As with the end of every episode, Chuck Lorre has his own Vanity Card. This episode vanity card reads in part. Which is the same as episode 1.6. "This is the official 'I have nothing worth writing about' vanity card. It will run whenever I have nothing worth writing about. Don't be surprised to see it quite a bit. From now on, when our schedule requires me to deliver a new card and I'm empty, I'll simply say 'Run one eleven'. A check of the one hundred and ten cards I've already written will quickly demonstrate that I should have written this card a long time ago. Why didn't I? Vanity. I have become so vain about my vanity cards. I was determined to write a new one each week because, well...I'm just that kind of guy. But I'm older and wiser now. I know when I have nothing to say. And that knowledge is freedom. Freedom from the constant need to win your approval. And more importantly, freedom from the obsessive and relentless need to end each vanity card on a joke.
