Episode cast overview:
Tommy Pearson
Olivia Pearson


Charlie tries to teach Jake how to avoid female scorn by carefully screening telephone calls. However, grandma Harper knows all the tricks and comes unannounced, to commandeer the boys for a dinner to present 'possibly' the new man in her life. When even Charlie is dragged there, it gets worse. Tommy Pearson's daughter Olivia is Charlie's unforgiving ex. Afterward Evelyn loses Tommy for good, with not even a call from him, and falls into unprecedented black gloom. Alan feels obliged to invite her, to the beach-house, where she makes life hell for the male trio, fitting her favorite musical acts 'These boots are made for walking'. Written by KGF Vissers

Crazy Credits

As with the end of every episode, Chuck Lorre has his own Vanity Card. This episode vanity card reads in part. "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.

Sentimental disappointment for Evelyn
10 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

In this sixth episode the intrigue focuses more on Evelyn, the mother of Charlie and Alan. We learn it more on her and for once she(it) seems more human after his(her,its) loving break even if it is short-lived because she(it) always remains very breakable and incisive. The scene(stage) of the meeting between both families is the scene(stage) pivot of the episode, it shows itself rather funny even if we would have been able to hope even better. A deep point(headland) towards the end of the episode is inserted well. In light an episode which is situated in the good average of the series due to Charlie always so spiritual and hard-hitting in its dry humor.
