Episode cast overview:

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.

Evelyn's boots were made for walking
24 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Charlie tries to teach Jake a thing or two about how to properly screen calls, and avoid female harassment. Charlie's Mom arrives unannounced, and wants Charlie & Alan to meet her new boyfriend. Charlie doesn't wanna go, but gets coerced into it. At the dinner, Charlie bumps into a woman he's been out with before. Naturally, it's the daughter of his Mom's boyfriend, Olivia. Charlie's Mom gets dumped by her boyfriend, and she stays with the boys for a couple days. This is an excellent episode. We get our first real glimpse about how funny Holland Taylor is as Grandma. She just fit the show like a glove. The show was really starting to get comfortable at this juncture, with the cast gelling with one another. Charlie's message to Jake about never making promises you can't keep rang true to me, especially with women. Keeping a promise is exactly as it sounds, so I thought that was good advice. This episode also has something you'll rarely ever see. Charlie consoling his Mom, and saying he loves her. This is a very funny episode. It has a good message about being courteous is important.
