If They Do Go Either Way, They're Usually Fake 

Jake sees a butterfly tattoo on the firm bottom of a surfer-chick friend of Charlie's and draws a picture of it for school. Of course, this enrages Judith until she becomes very good friends with the woman herself.

Episode cast overview:


Charlie demonstrates to Alan how to keep people happy by telling them 'I understand' without committing to anything, not even actually listening. When Judith complains because Jake drew a beach girl's butt at school, Alan gives him a weasel PC lecture, but Charlie feels it's just normal for boys and teaches Jake the technicalities about implants. Alas Charlie's technique makes him Judith's confident, and she gets Cindy, the surfer girl he was after. Written by KGF Vissers

I understand.

Charlie lets an attractive surfer (Kristin Dattilo) use his shower and his beach house to clean up, whenever she feels like it. Jake notices the butterfly tattoo on her ass, and draws it during class. His interest grows, and grows when it comes to female body parts, to the point where it disturbs his parents, and Alan doesn't want Charlie to have meaningless sex anymore. Meanwhile, Charlie inadvertently becomes Judith's best pal when he gives Judith the wrong impression with his phony" I understand" shtick. Jake learns bad traits from Charlie as a result. I haven't laughed that hard in a while, when revisiting this episode. I saw it quite a few years ago, and hadn't seen it since, before last night. We all get to that age where our hormones go wild. I thought this episode depicted that in a great way. Angus T. Jones has rarely been funnier, than he has in this episode. That end scene with him in the movie theater will make even the most non-amused people laugh. Charlie Sheen is at his charismatic best, while Alan is as annoying & goofy as ever. Personally, I don't see the big deal about Jake's infatuation with women; it's natural nor should his parents try to prevent it. But it was absolutely hilarious.

Favorite quote: Charlie: Congratulations Alan, you managed to take the fun out of boobs
