Episode cast overview:
Cab Driver


Alan and Jake move into Charlie's beach-house permanently, ex Judith even helps arrange Jake's room. When the kid gets sick and insists on getting nursed 'at home' by his mother (who ruthlessly refuses any reconciliation move), Alan feels like a 'total failure', comparing himself to another guinea-pig which didn't survive Jake's neglect. Charlie takes Alan drinking and, when drunk, both of them conclude (with the help of the taxi driver) that the root of the brothers' problems is their mother, so she gets a nightly, yet ill-planned visit.

Alan and Jake have moved into Charlie's Beach house for good, ex Judith makes sure to make Jake's room like it is at her house. Jake & Charlie take Jake to Disneyland. They have a miserable time, and Jake ends up getting an ear-infection. Jake neglects Alan's help, and wants Judith instead. If that's not enough, Jake's pet guinea pig croaks, and he fails to reconcile with Judith. A distraught Alan weeps, so Charlie suggests they go get bombed together. Alan heeds Charlie's suggestion, and the two get very drunk, and get into some trouble, including visiting their mother. I haven't seen much of Two and a Half Men recently. I can't stand Ashton Kutcher, and I feel's he has wrecked the show. From what I've seen, Alan seems to be a conceited idiot. He always was a conceited idiot, but I couldn't help but like him, he's just overbearing now. Watching this episode again, made me realize how much I used to love Alan. He truly cared about Jake, and it just seems like they've turned Alan into a fully unlikable individual. But I digress. Even though it was self-serving, watching Charlie and Alan bond was cute. I laugh every time at the silly drunk things they do. How can you not laugh, watching Charlie and Alan make fools of themselves in a taxi cab? The confrontation when they are drunk with their mom is short, but classic. The twist ending is amazing as well. It's just a hilarious episode with two dysfunctional brothers bonding.
